Motor smoking Smoke started coming out of the housing from the motor as the power began to die during short use. I shut it off right away and opened it up. Is the motor done? Ive only had it for about 2 1/2 years...If the motor IS done should I just get a new blower or replace the motor..any help would be appreciated..Thanks..Paul

    When I opened it up there didn't appear to be any debris. It is an electric blower. I paid about $50.00 from Home Depot. Is it cheaper to get a new motor and install it myself or should I just get a new blower?

It sound like the blower wheel of the blower motor is rubbing the inside of the housing (the smoke). Sounds like the blower wheel rubbing may have burned the inner plastic housing or has come off of the motor shaft inside. Take the blower motor and wheel back out and inspect everything closely I think you will find the problem.

I would be checking for the main lead to the battery /starter to ensure that it has not burnt though on the exhaust or has not worn through and been shorting out. The clicking noise would ne the solenoid moving but the current is not getting to the starter. Check the condition of the battery. Shorting of the cable will take the current away from the electrics so the engine would stop. The battery will have to be load tested to ensure that it has not been damaged.

Washer started to smoke during spin cycle then a cracking noise began after that.

You may just have a defective drive belt. The motor itself will smoke under certain failing circumstances. Can you give me a model # ?

Does someone know how to shut off the electrical plug at the bottom of a v-twin briggs and stratton. I think this is causing my motor to smoke bad out the exaust. thanks

Are you refering to the solonoid on the bottom of the carb? That is an anti backfire device. It will not cause the motor to smoke. If it has failed the motor will not run; the solonoid prevents fuel from entering the main jet.
There are several things that wil cause a motor to smoke. First check for fuel in the crankcase. To check for fuel in the crankcase, it is hard to see on the dipstick, remove the dipstick and VERY CAREFULLY away from anything flammable and away from the motor hold a lighter to the dipstick. If the dipstick lights it has fuel on it, a lighter will not ignite oil. Blow out the flame and wipe the dipstick clean with a rag before inserting back into motor. A worn needle or debris in the needle will cause the carb to flood. It will fill the crankcase and muffler with fuel. To cure this you will need to rebuild the carb and change the oil. Installing a shut off valve in the fuel line will prevent this in the future. After the service has been done the unit may smoke for 5-10 minutes while it burns off the fuel in the exhaust.
Burning oil indicates stuck rings, overfilled oil, or worn valve guide seals ( valve guide seals will smoke on start up then clear up).
Also leaking rocker covers will drip oil on the exhaust and burn off.

No electrical power at all.

Did it burn the belt off the alternator? If not, try to jump start the car and then test the alternator.

Heat blows "smoke" from vents

you need to replace your heater core... the smoke is from antifreeze getting into your blower motor .........

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer

do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)
