SOURCE: why is there smoke?

If any of the resistors in circuit have burned out, a smoke with a fouling smell will come out. There must be some shorted component/s at the main power regulator board to your TV.

I have a blodgett zephaire gl oven. unit kept buring up 24v transformer, was old bad centrifical switch in motor. I replaced motor with brand new one, unit still buring up 24v transformer.....why ?


A short somewhere causing it to overamp. Put a 3amp inline fuse on the secondary side (24v side) on the hot wire. This will save the transformer and blow the fuse not the transformer. The centrifugal switch prolly wasn't bad. So I would trace the wire coming off transformer and look for bare wire or loose wires. Anything that would cause a short

3 plates stopped working and the 4th one does not switch off.


unplug the unit and gain access to the wiring connection for all 4 elements(plates). remove the wiring from the element that will not shut off. while making sure none of the unconnected wires do not touch any metal or another wire, and plug in power cord. if the 3 non-working elements get hot then replace the none working control knob

Check the pedal if it is jamming half way down. Brake lights work by 2 means one is a pressure switch the other is a mechanical switch both requires the pedal to be pressed. Your subscription tells me the brakes are binding and the switch is made.

Why is there smoke?


Kindly switch off the TV, switch off power, and remove plug. The TV needs servicing by a qualified service technician.

The TV made a sudden sizzling sound, shut itself off, red light blinking approx every 10 seconds, accompanied by a buring odor. Tried turning off and on, and it shuts itself off after about 3 seconds.


This is not enough information for a definitive repair, if it smelled like rotten fish it was a capacitor that vented. Either way you either need to get a repairman or if you want to tackle this yourself you will need to open the back up and look for any capacitors that look puffed up, or transistors that are cracked. The blink code will help locate where to look. There is more that can be said but not in one posting. If you want to tackle this yourself let me know.

I have a maytag pavt454eww. I am looking for a fuse or a thermal circut breaker somewhere. The motor smelled hot and shut off. Is there something in the circut to protect the motor?


YES, THERE IS A OVERLOAD PROTECTOR ON THE MOTOR ITSELF. THERE HAS TO BE A REASON WHY THE MOTOR IS GETTING EXCESSIVELY HOT. PROBABLY A BEARING THAT IS BINDING.

Spin cycle not working


It could be the lid switch or check you motor leads. Sometimes the high and low motor wire gets loose and burns off. The colors are sometimes yellow, orange, or red.
