If it is a gas dryer the exhaust fumes are dangerous. Even if its a electric you still do not want to breathe in the lint that the dryer blows out.

DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Dryer is not getting hotv


In order of probability, depending on the year and model of the dryuer.
1) Your heating element has "bit the dust" (failed).
2) One of the several "overheat thermostats" that are located in the rear or bottom of the inside of the dryer has failed.
3) One of the wires inside your machine (either near the heating element, or connected to the heating element) has burned in two.
4) You have no current to that "leg" of the dryer, the circuit breakier (in you hall, laundry room, garage, or wherever) is popped.
5) The connector board where your dryer cord hooks to your dryer is "toasted".
Should you decide to fix it yourself, a question to "fixya" could cause you to receive step-by-step instructions.
Be blessed

There's a strong smell (fumes) coming from the printer. I felt high the first day and I had a funny feeling in my throat on one side. Some say it smells like a hot blow dryer or burning smell. I need to...


The odor is coming from what is called the 'fuser' which heats and bonds the toner to the paper stock. There may be some light residue from the manufacture of the fuser roller which is heated to a high temperature to enable the fusing to take place. It may linger for several days but is unlikely to be hazardous in nature otherwise Samsung wouldn't allow it to remain on the assembly. Laser printers often smell 'hot' due to this process but I have not heard of any hazard caused by fumes. One caveat though; the fuser roller is coated with Teflon or an equivalent coating. I nearly died from Teflon which was in a gaseous state many years ago but it was exposed to temperatures of greater than 450F which is dangerous since the effect is that of a nerve gas called phosgene. Since that is a temperature one can easily reach on a stove-top, we have NO coated cookware in our home.
If you notice that the plastic near the warmest place on your machine feels uncommonly hot, it might be best to shut it down since it may be possible for the thermostatic control to fail so the fuser is heated to an abnormally high temperature. I'm fairly sure there is a thermal fuse to prevent catastrophic failure but wouldn't count on it.

When I come to a stop the cabin fills up with fumes that smell just like natural gas. This happens 100% of the time and is very strong at times. Any suggestions?


Your vehicle is brand new and that is your exhaust converter
It will eventually go away. If you go up hills,it gets real bad, as it heats up more.
If it continues for 6 months, have the dealer check it out,under warrantee

Why are the clothes coming out of the dryer smelling musty? we have the lg tromm dle5977w


The problem might not be with the dryer, but with the washer. Let me explain. When I first got my LG w/d set, I did a web search, and found that front load washers tend to build up bacteria and mold(which one person said was staining her clothes). The solution was to leave the door of the washer open when not in use. That worked for me for the most part, but the musty smell persisted. I found that the soap tray was getting dirty(from mold/bacteria), and the area inside was even worse. So now I remove the soap tray when not using the washer. Also, some appliance stores have cleaning packs that dissolve in an empty washer load. They are supposed to clean out residue and kill bacteria that cause odor in "HE" washers that may only be noticeable from the dryer. The brand name of the product I have is "Washer Fresh", and they're about $12 for 6 "PowerPacs".

There is a strong oil smell in the dryer


If you have recently painted or varnished inside your home the fumes in the air can create a hydrocarbon type smell in your dryer. This should stop as soon as the house is aired out.
