My BaByliss blow dryer smells like burnt when I turn it on and I seen like a spark is it going to work anymore


DRYER SMELLS LIKE BURNING:

Answer:First, Stop using your dryer until this problem is resolved. This is a fire hazard and could cause a fire.
Your issue is more than likely alint build up problem. The lint that comes off of your clothes as you dry them becomes trapped in the dryer itself and in the venting duct that connects from the back of the dryer to the wall.
The first thing to do is todisconnect powerby unplugging the dryer cord from the wall. Slide the dryer away from the wall slowly.Remove the hose ductthat attaches to the back of the dryer. Look inside the hose duct and if you see heavy lint build up, that is most likely your problem. If you have a shop vac vacuum or similar, use the long wand attachment tovacuum out the lintthat is in the duct. The best way to do this is to completely remove the vent duct from the wall and dryer.Vacuum the inside of the ductto clean it out. Alsovacuum in the vent hole in the wallwhere the duct attaches to the wall and remove any lint that may be blocking air flow. Put everything back together and test your dryer to see if the burning smell has been resolved.


NOTE: There may be heavy build up of lint deep in the wall. You can purchase aDryer Vent Cleaning Kitthat may make your job of cleaning the vent much easier. However, it may be best to call a Dryer Vent Cleaning Company as they have the equipment that is needed to remove all lint in the wall that could cause a fire. We know everyone wants to save money and "do it yourself" but when it comes to safety, money should not be an issue.
If the burning smell is still present, you cantake the dryer apartandtry vacuuming out any lintthat may be built up on the inside of the dryer. Do a search for your dryer model name and number onGoogleto see how your particular dryer model is disassembled. If you are not comfortable taking your dryer apart then it is advised to call an appliance repair company as your issue can cause a fire.
There are other reasons for your dryer to have a burning smell. There could be an electrical issue inside your dryer. This may mean that a certain part or electrical board is going bad or is bad. Another common reason for this issue is something is near the heating element inside the dryer and causing the burning smell. If you have an older clothes dryer, it may be possible that the components are past its life span and it is time to purchase a new dryer. If you want your dryer to be looked at by a professional, it may be time to call an appliance repair company to come out and check your dryer.
There are plenty of videos that can help you to determine what may be wrong with your dryer. There are a few videos below that may assist you with troubleshooting and disassembling your dryer.
The belt
In some dryers, a belt turns the drum. This belt can slip off, which can cause it to start melting. Because it is usually made of rubber, it will then produce a very strong, unpleasant burning odor. If your drum is not turning smoothly or properly, and you notice a bad burning smell, your belt is probably damaged.
THE MOTOR
Dryers have motors, and as they age, they can burn out just like any other motor. This causes a very strong burning smell, and your dryer will either not run at all, or it will run poorly and with a lot of noise.

Smell from vents


do the A/C mold killing spray , procedures.
on most newer cars with the filter in dash.
you remove the filter and spray that killer down in there.
this kills the mold in the condesate tray.
also clean the condensate drain tube that goes from (USA) passengers toes to below car, as pool of fresh water as seen
on all cars with A/C running,or parking after.
if the tube cloges water can go stagnent and as the name implies.
stinks bad.

Dirty Water & gurggling & spitting sounds coming from toilets


I assume that the toilet flushes and refills with clean water? Check the vent- for debris or critters. If nothing is apparent, stick a hose in it and run water down the vent.

It gives off a moldy smell and the vents look dirty. Is there anything i can use to clean it and make smell go away?


Hvac/refrigeration/ appliance parts houses have chemical coil cleaner
its a mild acid, goes on liquid and expands to foam pushing out debris
and stripping the coil shiney new! remove and hose out for the best results
as both coils and pan bottom must be cleaned.

I have the bissell littlegreen proheat pet, and every time we turn it on to use it smells REALLY bad.. we always clean out the dirty tank and clean what we can get to but it STILL smells! i need to know...


Don't have a solution to the whole odor problem. But my machine smells musty or moldy so I have taken the dirty solution tank and turned it upside down and shook it filled with detergent. You can see the white pipe, or that's what I call it open so additional water drains out. But a bigger problem with my machine occured about 3 weeks ago. I was using my machine and when I picked it up off the carpet there was a black liquid that had come from the bottom of the machine. Which is not good given I have white carpet. I contacted the Bissell Company and they had me send the machine to them and they provided a prepaid shipping label. Also the company send me a bottle of pet and stain remover to get the stain out. As of yet the stain has not been totally removed. A bit of advice so this doesn't happen to you is to put a towel under the machine when using. I say this because I'm not sure if it is connected to the bad smell and thinking it might be a black moldy liquid. Hope this helps.

Bad smell from motor


Hello,

You need to remove any spoiled food from the refrigerator and clean the interiors with hot water added with baking soda. You need to clean the door seals and remove the breaker strips. Also check for unusual wet insulation.
Hope this work

My Audi has a bad smell when I turn on the air


could be an a/c leak, could be mold in the vents.....there are vent cleaning kits you can get at most auto parts stores....they consist of a spray that kills mold, however you do not want to use them if you dont know how to take the ductwork out of the dash as it may leak and destroy electrical components in the dash.

Bad smell from a/c


Do you leave your climate control in the Auto position. This is bad. What happens is the evaporator which is located in the vents never dries out and you begin to grow mold. Does it smell musty, locker room type smell.
Also since it came out the heat vent it could also be a leaking heater core. Check you coolant level and reservior. If low this is an indication heater core is leaking. It may not of leaked enough to tell but usually these are the only reason the vents would smell unless a rodent ended up there and died.
