Central AC unit sent smell and smoke film

Last nght while asleep, a smell and smoke film filled our house. We called the fire department to check out the house. They determined it was the AC air handler unit n nthe garage. The AC unit was in the OFF position at the Themastat. This is quite baffling. Also, we noticed the air handler circuit breaker was tripped . How can the circuit breaker trip and the house smell like smoke when the AC was in the OFF position? What is the problem with our AC unit?

    It's strange that you AC smelled like smoke even though the thermostat is off. Whenever I turn mine on, it smells moldy and then like smoke, even though I've checked the area around it to see if there's anything burning. We might have the same problem. I'm going to call an HVAC professional who specializes in odor elimination to see if they can fix it. Maybe you should do the same. http://www.myairandenergy.com/air-purifi...

My dishwasher burnig smell and smoke coming out


Shut it off and go turn off the breaker on that circuit. If it's still burning, hit it with a fire extinguisher or call the fire department. Open a window to clear out the smoke and then call a repairman.

System is old need a replacement I can't seem to open, is there a battery replacement or a replacement alarm available


to open fire alarms twist the case to the left and it comes apart
consider this
if the alarm is old , it has been superseded with a better model that works on a different principle to smelling the air to detect smoke
Discuss the advantages of installing the new and different version with any fire prevention company or your local fire department
IN many instances a combination of both ensures protection of the people in the house

White smoke from air vents while ac was on,greasy film on window while defrost is on/heater coil?


Yes. The heater core is leaking bad. The white smoke is the coolant and steam. Be sure to add water to the radiator before you burn up the engine.

My Frigidaire Washer began pouring out smoke. Smelled like burnt rubber and the smoke from the garage filled my home. Had to call out fire department. not an electrical issue


The bearing on the main spindle probably seized and the motor continued running and burned up the belt. The belt will need to be replaced, and whatever caused the issue in the first place will need to be remedied weather it was a bearing or something else.

Are there any reported problems with the Firez 21007624 carbon monoxide detector false alarms?


I do not know of any reported problems specific to the Kidde CO/smoke alarm, but I spent a significant part of my career servicing toxic gas sensors and can give you some general advice:

1- Most important: treat an alarm as a REAL alarm and DO NOT suspect that your alarm is a "false alarm". My experience has been that most "false alarms" ARE REAL and the source needs to be identified! With Carbon Monoxide detectors, it is usually a blocked vent for a gas fired appliance- a hot water heater, furnace, or oven. Call your fire department or a service professional to make sure that there is no carbon monoxide. They have portable detectors that will be able to double check your alarm.

My advice to you at this moment is to act as if you have a real alarm condition and do not place you or others in a life threatening situation. Ventilate the room/ apartment/house IMMEDIATELY!

I will post more after I send this because you may be in a life threatening situation!

To make sure that there is not a problem with your blower test it on cool. if it runs good. then start the heater on auto and it should be okay. but still supervise the operation for about 5 mins. if you still smell something burning . then call an AC Technician for help.
