Burnt smell


Check the main power supply regulator section for faulty component/s. The sound you heard might be of a bursted electrolytic capacitor at the power regulation stage circuit, due to some spikes in the input AC voltage. Open the TV and check this section. Be sure to unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, before open it.

Daytek television will not turn on.


There is a manual switch on the bottom of the TV. Flick it on and TV screen should come on. The power light will come with this switch off but the screen won't. It had me cursing for a while until I saw the little switch.

I have 2003 windstar with 138,000 miles, I put on drive and went about 1/4 mile and transmissiion is not working, I can move the lever to R , D 1&2 position but gears do not engage, Is my transmission...


Well in order for it to be broken, I think you would have noticed while driving it, a breaking loud bang and it would have left you stranded at that very point. But from what it sounds like to me by your description is that you were just driving it and then it just disappeared. Now if during that 1/4 mile you noticed it was slipping or smelling like burnt wiring before it stopped working, it cuold be that it burnt up inside.(clutches and bands etc.) What I suggest you do is pull the dipstick and smell the fluid on the tip. If it smells like burnt wiring...BINGO...Its burnt. If it doesnt smell burnt, what is the fluid level? When was the last time you've had a tranny tune up? If you haven't had your tranny serviced at the specified intervals by the makers, your transmission could have went out due to lack of fluid circulation caused by a clogged filter. Now, a clogged filter can also cause your converter to go out too. Does your engine seem to run at a higher RPM along with an unpleasant vibration? start with smelling your fluid.

Microwave not heating and giving burnt plastic smell


STOP USING IT!! UNPLUG IT!! Microwaves are inexpensive now. It will cost you more than a new one costs, to get it fixed.

Kenmore 70 dryer smells burnt


There could be dust settled on the motor inside from the few years in storage. Unplug and remove back, with a hoover brush **** off all dust but do this lightly as to not disturb any connections.

Smells like burnt wires


It is very possible it may have burnt wire or burnt capacitor. Remove unit, remove top cover and look inside to see if you see any burn marks or burnt wires. Also check fuse to see if it is good or not.
