What is the wattage of the device you are trying to run? Its possible that its too big for the inverter and its running hot.

Burning smell when using my stair climber


This is a common smell when using these units. The smell comes from the ceramic load resistor. This part of the unit heats up as you use it. All it takes is a little bit of dust on the resistor and when it heats up, you get the burning smell. Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH

Burning smell Kenmore 50558


If the burning smell is an electrical smell it could be motor or wiring problems which are best handled by a professional. If it smells like burning rubber it is probably the belt. If it smells like burnt wood it could be the belt slipping on the brush roll, if the brush roll is made of wood. Dust and debris can also accumulate behind the end caps of the brush roll causing friction which can cause a burning wood smell.

Burning smell


If it smells like burning a burning plastic/ceramic then your brakes are locking up and burning. Next time it does it, see if the smell is coming from the rear tire. if so, its time for a brake job

Xantrex inverter/ charger smells like burning electrical


I would call or e-mail the manufacturer of the inverter. The dealer or dealers may know the issue but likely the manufacturer will be more help.
Some devices like an inverter will have a smell in the beginning, power supplies are like that. You said that the inverter didn't get hot but smell indicates something is hot.

Something went on fire behind the fan,there was a buirning smell and there was orange light coming from behind the fan. Now the oven wont heatr up


That fire and burning smell was your oven element burning out. The element is located directly behind the fan. This is why your oven will no longer heat up.

If you are going to replace the element yourself, there are some universal elements available (try eBay) much cheaper than the OEM replacement parts. You need to make sure it's the same rating though (e.g. 2000W) and is roughly the same dimensions and has the same fitting pattern.

You will also need a service manual unless you know how to get access to replace the element.

No picture, perfect sound, burning smell


I assume this is an LCD tv that you have? I would think a fault has developed on your inverter board with one of the components having burnt out & shutting off the drive to the backlights hence the smell & lines on the picture. It would be advisible to take it to a repair centre to have it repaired to check the burning issue as a matter of safety

Washer wont spin, smells like burning glws1649


Burning smell could be the windings in the motor. Better not to use it and have it looked at. If the smell is a rubber smell then the belt is jammed while the motor spins. still needs intervention as it can catch on fire and you will have a bigger problem than the one you have now

I it is an electrical smell, then you have a bad motor, if a rubber smell, you may have a bad belt and/or brush roll.
