Question about Gibson Heating & Cooling
Air and heat unit which has auxillary heat too; when unit clicks on, outside unit fan starts; after delay, some other motor starts (if it was needing air, I'd say the condenser is struggling to start) tho sluggishly; wall Honeywell thermostat says 'heating' but no air ever comes thru the vents to heat our home. It smelled like something burning at 4am (but no smoke or specific site found for this smell). we turned it off. (May be of significance or not, altho we've had colder nites lately, it seemed to me that our unit ran nearly all the time; I'd be awakened for some reason and notice how it's running-- and wait, wait, wait until it shut off; but before I'd fall back to sleep, it would already be running again (and heating/blowing); I just thought it might be due to colder outside, but it did seem excessive.

It sounds like the blower motor has burnt up.(the one inside) The unit running for a few minutes then shutting off, is due to the high pressure/temperature safeties. When you removed the panels, did you notice any fan running?

does it smell like literally , dirty socks?if so it is dirty sock syndrome, a plague of heat pumps for years. if it smells like an electrical melting or burning of wires then time to call a pro.it could be a weak capacitor or a weak fan motor. if it is dirty sock syndrome then its the microbes that thrive when temps are middle temps and reproduce when temps are hot and cold in intermittent days. hot one day and cold the next equals call for cool then call for heat and hot steam from heated coils cause s bacteria to grow and microbes to spread across coil. when you switch back it causes the smell.if the coil is clean you can spend a chunk of money on sanitizers but best bet is to run it cool for hot weather and hot for cool weather. the transitional periods are what create the smell. avoid semi cool and semi hot periods. this condition is common to acs from all brands . lots of stuff on the internet about dirty sock syndrome

Not sure what the smell...smells like. My guess is dirt or dust near the heating elements. These will cause a burning smell. Sometimes insects even get into the act..building webs.
You will have to clean that area out...sometimes a large blower or vac can dislodge the dust.
