How may times have you tried this then? lol if I were you I would ask an A/C Engineer to pop round and check your supply to the system, and all other electrical systems. Please stop what your doing its quite obvious now there is a fault on the site.

Be safe.

Why My Hobart A200 20 QT Mixer ML #104858 Motor Is Smoking?


I think... without knowing that motor... that the capacitor is a start capacitor, and that the start switch may be trying to "start" the motor full-time instead of switching it out of circuit after it figures that the motor has spun up. I may be wrong - that design may be a capacitor-run motor (similar to a three-phase motor) - but I'm betting it's a start-only capacitor.

If you know someone with a capacitance meter, you could check the capacitor - for both capacitance (to be sure it matches the label) and leakage. Easy way to write that one off. Alternatively, you could rig it such that after the motor's wound up you could manually disconnect the capacitor and see what happens - either the motor stops or else the smoking issue stops.

Whatever you do, don't let it smoke very long. The varnish on the windings is only so thick.

When making a turn car saputters and blows a cloud of white smoke


Sorry to tell you this is most like a head gasket leak, or a crack in engine cylinder head. The white smoke is usually anti-freeze burning. When the motor heats up the metal expands and can plug the leak. Do a search on you tube for Scotty Kilmer He has some good videos and information on head gasket leaks. It's usually very expensive to repair mechanically, but he suggests some sealants. If the leak is not too bad the sealant may work. Some cars are notorious for bad head gaskets.

The other thing it may be is oil burning if it's more of a blue gray smoke. When the car sits overnight, on older cars if the valve seals leak, some oil can may accumulate down into the engine cylinder. When the car starts this burns off. If a piston in the motor has a broken ring it can continue to smoke.

The best way to determine your problem is to check the levels of antifreeze and motor oil when the car is cold. Do NOT try to check the antifreeze when the car is hot, or you can get sprayed with hot antifreeze. Good luck.

Heater and aircon not working,loud rattling noise and smoke from vent,now not power to fan


It appears your fan itself burned out. When a field coil of an electrical fan burns out it usually makes a lot of smoke. The noise could be something that fell in there that stopped the fan from turning freely. I can imagine it heated up under the strain and burned out.

When you restarted it was burnt out so hence no noise and no fan.
The smell of the smoke should also be clue. Electrical field coils burning has an awful soury type of smell.

Chevy Aveo strange smell and smoke coming through the vent with air conditioning on. Checked engine-OK. Turned up air conditioning full blast...after 30 seconds...little more smell and smoke it stopped...


If the blower motor is still working, that was not the problem-the strange smell might have been from some bacteria in the plenium, and the smoke may have just been the result of condensation from the evaporator in the plenium-keep an eye on it, but if the blower is working, I would not be overly concerned about it.

Kiddie fire alarm model I12060, beeps once every


This happened to me, my smoke detector started chipping so I changed the batteries. A few seconds later it started chirping again. The answer is in the way you put the batteries in. The smoke detector allows you to put the batteries in wrong and makes a slight connector. This slight connector tricks the detector into thinking the batteries are weak. Simply turn the batteries around so the fat connector of the battery touches the skinny connector of the device. Mine was, fat side on the right.

Fan stops turning after about 30 seconds


this sounds like one of your capacitors has failed
using an insulated screwdriver and, power not applied remove the spade connectors from one of the capacitors then short the capacitor to ground to discharge it replace the spade connectors apply power and, turn it on if the problem changes replace the capacitor (a bad capacitor usually is "bulged")
there are usually two capacitors a run and, a start

Turn on, but I don't har fan and it startd smoking.


I would suspect a problem with the high-voltage inverter.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.
