Question about Brother IntelliFax-4100e Fax

1 Answer

Smells hot and doesn't work

Intellifax 4100e was working until it smelled like something was burning. At that point it would not do anything. Is there a way I can remove the cover to see what might be damaged inside the machine?
Do you think it's worth repairing?

Unfortunatley, with laser printers it is not unusual to notice a burning smell. Sometimes that could mean that there is paper jammed inside your fuser assembly and it is being burned when power is applied. However, there could be a number of reasons why the machine won't function. My recommendation is to have a certified technician look at the machine for you. It may cost you $45-$75 to have someone check it out for and tell you what the cost would be to fix.

My Indesit IDL40 dishwasher, loud bang with slight burning smell but still working?


Any burning smell is not good. Indicates that something in there is too hot and perhaps melting something. Could even catch fire......

Could very well be that whatever is responsible for the noise can be causing the problemo.

I started my car and it is missing and smells like rotten eggs and burning,what is doing this?


Did you add anything to the car. Amp/stereo ? anything? If not then you have a ground or hot/positive problem (check round points and hot wire points). If you added something, you cut into the wrong wire for power.

Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?


have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

Burning smell when I warm up the car


check to make sure you dont have anything (plastic bag, etc) burned and stuck on the exhaust, othere than that it could be a normal smell associted with the different materials getting hot, i would compare it to another like vehicle and see, could also be trapped odors in the heater core caused by a previous smoker or bacteria growing, gm sells an odor elimnator that works pretty well

Burning smell


There's a number of reasons to smell burning after a washing machine cycle. It's a 220V appliance, so if it short's out it will cause problems. It's more likely the motor being overloaded making it hot and causing the electrical burning smell, or a short that's overheating something electrical. Check to see if the belt that spins the whole barrel is melted or worn anywhere. Inspect the wiring that's attached to the system that engages spin, which is different from agitation by the big tower.
If these both check out, an trip to the Maytag Man might have to fix overloading motors or relays, or switches, if anything turns up in your search for the source of the electrical smoke. Ozone is what you are smelling, FYI.

Smell like a electrical smell ocassionaly coming


Its probably getting hot so you might smell the components heating up. I would try to if possible clear up some space and try cleaning the unit with a air can. Try to get dust that builds up over time
