Not familiar with that brand but each compressor I ever saw had a compressor relay. The relay allows for power to multiple windings inside the compressor and then it drops out power to start windings which saves energy and prevent compressor overheating. overtime the relays disintegrate inside. If it sound like a salt shaker inside it or appears to be charred outside it is on the way out and there is yore funny electrical smell. I have service manuals for various american models at appliancejunkgoogledrive.

CHECK THE OVERLOAD/RELAY ON THE COMPRESSOR. THE RELAY COMPONET IS BREAKING DOWN AND CARBONIZING CAUSING A BURNING SMELL. THE PART WILL SOON STOP WORKING AND THE COMPRSOOR WILL NOT RUN. IT WOULD BE WISE TO REPLACE THAT PART ASAP.

I have a jeep cherokee limited and sometimes when I got to start it, it shakes a little and then I get a burnt smell from the engine


check that the smell is not from the o2sensor wires burning on the exhaust system. This will also give other problem indications.

Timing belt? smell of burning rubber?plastic?


Did you mean serpentine belt? If so remove the and ensure all the pulleys are spinning free. A seize pulley such as A\C compressor or tensioner pulley can created more drag or friction making the belt hot and burn thus giving you the burning rubber smell.

How do I find a burning smell coming from my refrigerator? The freezer part is not staying cold. The compressor is very hot. I think that is what I smell burning. The fan next to compressor is moving very...


The slow fan could be the problem. The compressor is over heated and not working properly. Let it stay off long enough to cool down and put a fan to try temporarily and be sure tha is the only issue. It may have cooked the compressor.
