SOURCE: odor

Hi Sunlark,

I'm guessing your product is new -- the first couple of times you heat the elements, they're going to cook-off any chemicals that might have been on the plates as part of the manufacturing process. This may include any non-stick chemicals that might be bonded to the surface.

I personally try to avoid non-stick products as I'm leery of the Teflon/fluorine in the product, but I'm told I'm a little paranoid about things like that - - you have to use your own judgement.

If this smell persists after the first several uses, I'd contact the manufacturer's customer service people.

SOURCE: it smells like something is burning smells like

If it smells like an incomplete combustion smell, clean the burner first. I'm assuming it used to work and now doesn't? If it never worked correctly it may have the wrong jet in it. There is a jet for propane and one for natural gas. They do not interchange. If it smells like plastic burning, something probably got past the screen and fell into the burner.

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

I have a Gold Medal popcorn machine model 2085 that is producing a burning wire odor. Have other people reported this problem with their machine


All new popcorn machines will produce a industrial smell for a short while when first heated up. It is from the oils used in manufacturing and that will stop over time.
Burned wire smell is usually associated with cleaning of the kettle. Cleaning compounds that are stuck in the carbon will create a harsh smell.

Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?


have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

EW30EW65SS Stainless Steel smells like burning electrical


Hello purrpplee - If the smell is coming out of the oven vent, more than likely it is something inside the oven that is creating the odor. Also, keep in mind that new cooking products can create a burning electrical odor when the bake and broil cycles are used as any residual coating or film on the oven liner and elements burns off. However, if odor increases consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

My 2 month old Amana Refridgerator with Freezer on


If your sure about spoiled food. Spoiled lemons are one of the worst, and the machine has not been abused, it's a problem of the selling dealer. Fan motors have been known to create an odor when their windings start to burn. Plastic items that become detached from the interior cabinet and wind up laying on the defrost heater which gets very hot during defrost is another, however, I would demand a service call (free) since everything on it is under warranty. Make sure it's creating the odor when the tech shows up.

Foul water smell coming from washer after using machine.


Check the hoses to make sure there are no leaks or standing water behind. Try running a cycle or two of vinegar water and baking soda water to kill any mildew that might be in the tub.
New washers often give off an odor described as a burning match or electrical smell. This is normal and is caused by the "wearing in" of clutch shoes and the heating of new paint on the motor windings.
Older washer odors are usually caused by leaving the washer lid closed when not in use. This does not allow air to circulate and dry out the moisture remaining in tub area. The air and moisture mixture becomes stagnant and creates an odor. When washer is not in use, leaving the lid up/open for air circulation will help prevent odor.


To get rid of odors inside of washer follow the steps listed below:
  1. Fill the washer with hot water; set at regular speed & longest time.
  2. Add 3/4 cup of Calgon Clothes Detergent. (Baking soda can be substituted) .
  3. Allow washer to complete entire wash and rinse cycle.
  4. If odor lingers, repeat entire process.

My monitor is still working but has an odor coming out of the vent holes of back cover. This is a Fuji 19" LCD Monitor (Model: FP-988D) abut 2 years old. All features still seem to work but I have...


It is normal for computer monitors to run hot and smell out
of the vent holes. The question is how much and how bad.

Under-sized power resistors on the circuit board often smell
like burned toast, this is normal. If the smell is very irritating
and "aromatic" like burned varnish, however, causing your nose
or eyes to burn, than the cause is probably due to an overheated
transformer and failure will occur eventually (soon)

(Transformers are made of a spool of wire, insulated with
Varnish. When overloaded or shorted inside, they stink)

If you see smoke, stop using it. Otherwise you have nothing
to loose, since nobody fixes monitors anyway, but keep an
eye on it to make sure it does not cause a fire. Always plug
your monitors into a power bar with its own fuse or breaker.

Finally if the monitor does to catch on fire, the more the
merrier, since most dealers and manufactures are much
more likely to give you a new one, when you rave and rant
about a lawsuit for almost burning your house down.

The best time to get warranty is during a sale on Saturday
afternoon !!!

More realistically, if the monitor does catch on fire, shut off
the power bar, real fast. Then unplug it and throw it in the
Bathtub :)

Dryer burning smell


Have you painted or stained in your house or apartment recently? The smell gets everywhere, dryer, stove, heating unit. I recently primed with Kilz and the clothes from my dryer smelled burned. When I called for service, it was the first question the service person asked and said they made a lot of useless trips only to find nothing wrong with the appliance. That was my case. I had to rewash clothes and let the dryer run with towels for a while
