    I have exactly the same problem . I was told it was the brushes burnt out in motor , but have checked them and they are OK . Only other thing I can think is it is the motor itself as it is only a 1.25 hp motor .

Drum not turning

If u have a burning smell, I'd check the belt and belt pulley. There is a switch at the pulley arm...if the belt hasn't pulled the pulley tight the switch won't make and motor won't run.

How do i replace the drive motor on Kenmore 80 series dryer model 11076862500

The motor is on a spring loaded pivot. DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICITY.
Remove the spring from the motor. MAKE A DRAWING OF THE BELT PATH. Simply open the wiring port and remove the wires. Make sure you connect the wires to the same marked terminals on the new motor. Also, make sure the new motor is set up for the correct voltage.

Hoover H3030-006 240 V Motor making a loud sound and burning smell

If you have little to no suction, that sound is happening because you most likely have a clog some were in the vacuum.

smell is probably your motor over working itself do to the clog.

also double check your belts on your brushes that they are moving with the motor. smell and sound could come from the brushes being jammed which would cause the belt to freeze and heat up and could burn the belt and or your motor.

if it is still running though your not in the red yetm so triple check that the machine is cleared off all clogs and jams in the belts and brushes.

When I push the start button, the drum will not always turn. Sometimes it make a buzzing noise and it smells like th emotor is heating up. after a few trys it won't even try to start. I took the dryer...

Sounds like the centrifugal start switch in the motor is malfunctioning -- the motor is running on the start winding and not switching (via the centrifugal start switch) to the run winding. The smell is because the start winding is overheating.

The centrifugal start switch is inside the motor on the end of the shaft with the pulley. You should be able to see it. Give it a good cleaning and lightly lubricate it. Move it back and forth to get it moving freely while cleaning / lubricating.

If this doesn't clear up the problem, the motor winding could be shorted already or the centrifugal start switch could be damaged beyond help by cleaning / lubricating.

More info, let me know.

This sounds like the rubbing strips at the front of the dryer are badly worn and/or the rear bearing is worn. From your description - the drum is sticking - causing the motor to slip on the belt - causing the burning smell.
Replace worn parts including the drive belt.

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.

Crown series 12 cycle washer will not agitate and smells like something is burning like a for instance a vacumme belt kinda smell in that cycle it spins fine fills fine drains fine but just makes a so

It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. 

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. 

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.

  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.

If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...

It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.
