SOURCE: smells like gas...!
I am not sure what the deal is, as this is a 10,000 btu air conditioning unit. No gas in this unit except for the freon gas in the system which is not harmful unless ingested? If you had it stored and it was on its side, this could cause a problem for sure. This would cause the oil and freon to mix causing a failure in the compressor, we call a burn out. The fan would blow air but not cold air and would have a terrible smell. If you have a thermometer to check the air temp. would be helpful. If it is blowing warm or room temp air, then you could have a problem with the compressor.Even though it may have worked before, by just turning it back on could have caused a failure. The only thing that would be dangerous, is a wiring problem of some kind, and I know you have smelled burning insulation. If it is cooling good, and you dont see any problems with the unit, go ahead and use it for a few days more and if the smell continues, take it down to an appliance repair shop and let them take a smell.Dono't use it at night when you are sleeping, or when you leave the house untill you know that it is ok.Wish I were there to see it for myself.

SOURCE: I bought a used K900
arianne, either the plastic tubing to the eater collect bucket is clogged or it has become disconnected.
I suspect the tubing is clogged. To resolve this, do the following:
Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.
NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
I hope this helps you.
