SOURCE: burning rubber smell and the dryer will not turn on

sounds like you need a new belt for your dryer, the smell of burning rubber is the belt slipping, thats my guess

SOURCE: the television takes 35 minutes to turn on

It a common issue mainly with the R71 models. Faulty power supply, can be caused by some blown caps on the chopper supplying the mains board voltage rail.
what is your tv? please rate me:D

SOURCE: my van makes clicking noise when going uphill & and sometimes the speeds slows right down and makes noise (clicking under vehicle).

Could be front CV axles making that noise. Check out the rubber cv boots going from the transmission to the center of the front wheels, If the boots are ripped or cracked, replace the cv axles on both sides.

SOURCE: on one minute then POP loud noise, burning smell

Loud popping and loss of power is common on plasma TVs and is usually either the Y sustain or Z sustain boards or buffers; in these instances the damaged part will be quite evident.

If this is an LCD you might have degraded insulation on one of the pink/blue backlight power leads causing high voltage to 'arc' to the chassis.

The loud bang and smell is actually to your advantage as in these circumstances the damaged part is usually evident. It'll just be a matter of popping the back off and sleuthing around. :)

SOURCE: Burning rubber smell from Subaru Legacy

Please have your exaust pipes checked, perhaps a mount is burning. The catalytic converter can make a nasty odor when it is clogged. Check the wear on the serpintine belt.

The AT480 model has a 2 year warranty on the motor and 2 year warranty on everything else. It probably has the same warranty that you have on your AT380 machine. It can be fixed at your expense.

for to input to the Motor, if there are NOT voltage from output the control BOARD is faulty, replace.

You must test the motor, and tight the electrical connection very well. and see if there some burn wires, or any board of the elliptical. See my personal TIPS.
And test the electrical wall, and see if the voltage is o.k .
However keep you eyes open, for any inconveniences. Suspect of the motor winding.
God bless you

My Cadence 825 is running on walking speed only when I'm on it but speed up when I'm not stepping the belt. It also makes burring sound when switched on and I can smell burning too.This is a 13 year old...

You actually used the opposite treatment that was needed when you used the lubricant spray. You want the belt to not slip but instead grab to the belt driver. Now, the lube should be removed and instead the powder that causes the belt to grab hold should be applied. You may want to call any treadmill store and ask them what they charge to do a maintenance on a treadmill like yours.
