Re: Brunt smell and sweating
Seems like your blower motor is burning up. Its the motor that blows cool air across the refrigeration coil. If it is a whole house ac unit, probably your main blower motor for the furnace. If you are getting sweat, that means the compressor is compressing the refrigerant, and you should not smell anything from the outdoor unit, only from the furnace. Hope this helps.

You really, really need to get your furnace checked by an HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) expert. Your furnace has a section where the fire heats tubes that air is blown across then out to your home to heat it. The air in your home and the air from the combustion process should never mix. If you smell exhaust, it's possible there is a breakdown in this part of the furnace and exhaust, which can include carbon monoxide, could be pulled into the air stream and be circulated in your home. Carbon monoxide can and will make you go to sleep and not wake up! Do not use the furnace until you get it checked.
This is a sign of a short and should be looked at immediately. A smell like that is a sign of something burning. I could be the start relay and start capacitor with overload. But I would not sleep with the possibility of a fire. I will look over your model and see if I can find what this could be, Sea Breeze
It sounds like the blower motor has burnt up.(the one inside) The unit running for a few minutes then shutting off, is due to the high pressure/temperature safeties. When you removed the panels, did you notice any fan running?
3 places where water could be coming from, The Ground, The venting system or the Condensate. Eliminate each one by first checking the condensate piping and check to make sure it is draining to the drain. Blow thru all hoses to make sure they are not blocked. Secondly, spray with a garden hose the venting system to see if the water is entering the system thru the venting. Lastly, if this happens only when it rains, you could have a ground water drainage issue.
