Check to see if the pins are damaged on the compressor. You may be able to repair the wires and replace the overload and relay. If you need help testing the pins on the compressor let me know.

SOURCE: Burning plastic smell INSIDE refrigerator

look for a door/light switch, and depress it do the lights go out?? bad switch will keep the lights on and melt plastic lens covers.. could also be nothing and you happened to open open the door right as a defrost cycle was completing( there is a heating elemnt in your freezer) watch your dairy, ice cream nad milk are real good indicators of refrigeration issues. as far as runnig all the time no real" time limit" as to how long it should be running.

SOURCE: refrigerator burning rubber smell when it tries to turn on

sounds like the relay on the compressors is getting hot and cutting the unit out, if the fridge is quite old it may well be the run windings gone short circuit in the compressor pot. The relay switches from start to run windings so may be firing the start circuit, switching over to a shorted run winding, and then getting hot and activating the thermal cutout and hence the burnig smell, plus the start and rapid shut down of the compressor.

SOURCE: Brand new Whirlpool Duet Sport gas dryer & burning plastic smell

I would consult the place of purchase. If they do not stand behind the product, then get the manufacturers support #. They will stand behind their product, especially if it is a possible fire hazard. THe smell you are smelling could be anything, but without being there and taking off the cover and doing a visual check. it's hard to dianose. It is possible that something that is plastic has fallen out of a pocket and gotten inside the unit while it was drying clothes and fallen onto the igniter housing.

SOURCE: Burning Rubber smell coming from fridge

try taking the bottom panel off and vacuming all the dust on the coils. The dust may be heating up and burning. The coils are usually at the bottom of the fridge. Check to see if the fan is running also.

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

My LG washer stopped mid-load at spin cycle, how can I fix this?


It sounds like a serious fault if there is no power the fuse has gone or some item has burnt out . You will have to arrange for a service engineer to look at it more closely.

Why does my car smell like burning rubber under the hood after i drove it for a while?


could be anything from engine oil on the engine block burning as your driving and coming inside through the air flow from the outside vents, you can always click over the button and recirculate the interior air which will close the vents from pulling air from the motor. Might want to take it in and inspect it, if its not burning oil off the engine somewhere the only rubber would be your tires rubbing somewhere on the wheelwell or the frame and possible melting in that manor.

check your alternator,power steering or air conditioning belts, unless you picked up whilst driving from the road any plastic bag onto the exhaust pipe and stuck and melts on it.

Smell of rubber or plastic burning when in use.


Does your unit have a power nozzle?-- could a belt be slipping at the floor nozzle?

When does the smell begin-- Immediately-- or after running awhile?

Do you feel anything in the power cord that is HOT?-- or the wall plug?
(You are not using an extension cord, right?)

Tell us more about the machine, and when and where you notice the smell the most--

We have a Kenmore dryer series 90 model #11066904690 that we started spelling a burny smell. We took off front panel and vacumed out we tryed to use it again and same thing happed and then shut off...


This could be a couple of things. But more than likely the motor has burned out. It could be a wire has burned off, or even the timer has burned. Since you say it "shut off completely", I would have the power cord checked where it connects inside the dryer. UNPLUG it from the wall first! I have seen one wire burn off there from being a loose connection. There is a cover plate you can take off and look inside.

Melting plastic smell/ computer slow and shuts down after about 15mins


Hi there.
The reason you can smell burning plastic and why its shutting down after a short time is because its overheating. This can be caused by a build up of dust on the CPU fan, overtime with dust build up computers struggle to keep themselves cool and tend to shut down unexpectedly, chances are this is the problem with your machine, my advice would be to remove the power cord, open the side panel of the computer and clean all the dust away from inside the tower, do this with a soft, clean paintbrush making sure you remove the dust carefully and gently, also make sure the CPU fan and the heat sync behind it is completely free of dust or any other foreign objects.
Once you are happy that its clear of dust, close or return the side panel, plug in the power cord and turn the PC on, you may find that the PC will stay on for longer with the smell dramatically reduced.

Please post back with the results and thanks for using FixYa!!

Dryer smelled of burning plastic, smoked stopped turning on


check the power cord itself, if you see on the back side of the cord a burnt or blackened spot then the cord is the issue
