Smoke Smell The machine started to smell like something is burning inside. I had a look around (and under) when the machine was off and on, but couldn't locate anything. Did anyone suffer from a similar problem? Thanks a lot.

Is it sitting on a carpeted floor? If so raise it up with 3/4 inch boards to prevent overheating. Other than tat there is no solution

Maytag Neptune MAH5500 smelled like burning plastic at the end of the cycle. (The whole basement smelled bad.) The smell seemed to be coming from the plastic part at the top where it latches.


Tub bearings get worse, if they faulty, the machine would be noisy and getting louder. Sudden burning smells usually mean an electrical failure of a component but if this has stopped and the machine is working properly, its possible that something has got caught up in the rim of the tub or gasket area and during spin it has got "burnt" by being dragged around the edge. Have a close look at your clothes that were washed on that day for signs of burning or damage and around the top at leading edges of the tub for signs of melting or damage.

Smell of burning rubber and smoke from drawer


Sounds like your drive belt is loose or worn out. You will probably need a new belt. Is it possible something got inside the machine and jammed the belt?

Westwood T1600 Smoking and burning smell?


Burning rubber smell indicates that you must have a worn out belt that is starting to slip making the burnt rubber smell. I think you need to replace at least one belt, maybe more upon inspection of the rest.

My kenwood gives out some strange smell as if the cables inside are melting when I start it. The last time I used it, I had to stop as it couldn't blend. Please help, its quite new!!


DANGER !!!

If ever you smell electrical burning, you MUST TURN OFF the device and have this checked immediately by an authorised auto electrician.

Failure to do this can turn into a possible car fire!

Burning plastic smell from under hood


You will need to check where the liquid is coming from, It may be anything from Air Con, Fuel, Transmission Fluid etc..

The fact you smell burning plastic could be 3 things..

1, Brake pads could smell and burn down if they are on too tight (Had this problem with a trailer). Hence when you apply the brakes it could be squirting brake fluid out due to too much pressure.
- Check brake fluid

2, If the smell and liquid is inside the car (front pass side) it could be the air ducts. Under the dashboard you have air ducts etc for the fans and in car cooling (brother had issue with this)

3, Whatever the fluid is, it could possibly drip onto something hot, unusual for liquid to smell like plastic though, Auto transmission oil smells like fish.

Best bet would be the brakes. Next time you smell it just smell in the wheel mag and see if you can smell it, check the engine fluids often and dont use A/C (Air Con) as that does drip fluid (normal). If it is the brakes smelling you will need to have the lines bled out, tyre places may be able to do this, and possibly new brake pads

Good luck

Heater and aircon not working,loud rattling noise and smoke from vent,now not power to fan


It appears your fan itself burned out. When a field coil of an electrical fan burns out it usually makes a lot of smoke. The noise could be something that fell in there that stopped the fan from turning freely. I can imagine it heated up under the strain and burned out.

When you restarted it was burnt out so hence no noise and no fan.
The smell of the smoke should also be clue. Electrical field coils burning has an awful soury type of smell.

Washer had just started and i started to smell something, and all of a sudden a noise came from the washer and then smoke came from machine really bad, the noise sounded like air escaping


Looks like something is short circuited & due to which there is burning smell coming out of the machine. Disconnect the machine immediately & inspect the insides of the machine. Locate the burnt motor or burnt wires. You heard the noise coming out of the motor. It could be dislocated brushes due to which the motor could not rotate & in turn it burnt your motor.
