ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

SOURCE: frigidaire made a nosie then followed a smell.

Hi,
Sounds to me like your motor is bad.
They will make a bad noise and then go up in smoke when the bearings go out and the windings short out...I would check for power to the motor and if there is power going to the motor and the motor does not run then you have confirmed what I think the problem is.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Fishy smell coming from breaker box and dryer tripping breaker


The problem is probably the breaker box. The fishy smell can be caused by the plastic housing melting so this needs looking at.

Dead fish smell


Try putting in pie pans filled with loose coffee grounds for a couple of days. Might take a while to permeate the refrigerator. Then clean with vinegar and leave dish of vinegar in there.

My fridge smells fishy. It is perfectly clean and i have not had fish in there.


Bacteria will cause the smell. Make sure it is cold and put a box of baking soda open inside the fridge. It will absorb the odors. They sell baking soda with a mesh side specifically for your fridge.

Fish odor in freezer and fridge


Unplug first. You will need to clean the inside of the refrigerator and the freezer with a good cleaner and warm water. After this you need to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer and spray water with Clorox on the evaporator coil and pour some of the solution down the defrost condensate drain to disinfect and remove the odors that drain down that hole to be evaporated and returned to the air in your home. That should take care of the fish smell, Please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Odor / smell


If it is putrid meat

Look under your car for roadkill , or for that matter under the hood

Has an animal crawled into the muffler area for warmth and has either died there or been killed when you started up

If it is a fishy smell

I dont suppose that you have upset someone and they have tied a piece of fish to the muffler

A very old way of extracting revenge

Frisdge/freezer and ice smell


I had a side by side refrigerator with an Ice maker from Sears. The ice it makes smell fishy so bad that I could not use to drink with anything else but throw away to the plants. So I unscrewed the ice maker . It is not that bad, but quite simple to take it out. I noticed rusted pieces of metal generating strong fishy smell. I could not get rid of rust with soap, detergent, oil so I wrap it in plastic bag then screw it back into the refrigerator. Screwing back the ice maker. Voila. The smell is going away. The ice is good. Pina Colada and Daiquiri here we go .

Fishy, steam odor coming from AC vents


Forget the radiator tank. Your AC 'Condensate drain' hose is plugged up. This is a common problem. If you know where the hose comes out under the car you can ( carefully ) push a wire up it. If you're lucky it's plugged near the end by a mud-dauber wasp. If not, take it to your dealer and see if you can persuade the write-up guy to show you where the drain outlet is as a gesture of good faith. If they insist on charging you money, consider that when you buy your next car...
