Replace, the cost of repairing something made in china is usually greater than buying a new one. I would just get a new one with fresh warranty.

Smell smoke only when defrost is on


This could be a serious problem if the smoke smells like plastic or has a metallic hint ( I.E. You have a metallic taste in your mouth after smelling the smoke).
Remember the old adage " Where there's smoke, there's fire".
If you don't know how to disassemble the dash to find the problem, take it to a shop A.S.A.P. - You could burn up your vehicle by using either the heater or defroster, as they are parts of the same system.
Now for the rear defrost light;
If the light is out but the defroster works, you possibly have a burnt bulb. You'll need to remove the panel the switch is mounted in to gain access to the switch. You'll probably have to replace the switch to repair that bulb.If neither work, then you likely have several electrical issues that need to be repaired.
Sorry to bring bad - ish news!!

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was...


Hi There,

When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.

It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular model are notorious for breaking, but the fact that your machine doesn't come on at all after this happened, sounds like it may be the motor.

Both of these issues have a unique smelling smoke. If the smoke smelled like an electrical burning smell, this indicates it's your motor. If the smoke smelled more like burning rubber, then it's probably your belts.

If the smoke smelled like burning rubber, here's a video that we've recorded showing step by step how to inspect, trouble shoot, and replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner. If you open it up and the belts are still in tact, then this probably is a more serious problem of the motor burning out.

. I'd be more then happy to walk you through more advanced diagnosing if this doesn't fix your problem, please just use the comment box here on the Fixya repair page.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave some feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community if the repair solution was able to fix your problem.

Thanks again,

Oven smokes and smells like burning plastic


This happened with my oven, happened twice to the same (newer) oven actually. The smell and smoke occurred both with the oven and with the use of burners on stove top. Turned out it was the main line cord which had a split. The first repair they replaced the thermol block and all the bolts holding it into place (for a total of 9 parts) the second time (about a year later) the repairman replaced the line cord and said that it probably should have been done along with the first repair. The smell coming from the oven before the repair was a toxic burning wire or burnt plastic smell. There was also smoke if the oven was left on long enough. The repairman said that the amount of heat to "cook" the connection on the line was at a fairly dangerous level. It was recommended to me by the fire inspector (who was in my unit for annual condo inspections) that it was unsafe and to have it repaired immediately. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

I want to listen to music from my inspiron 9 threw im310


You will want to use a 1/8" to 1/8" Stereo patch cable similar to this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3612891 Just plug it into the headphones jack on your laptop then plug the other end into the jack on the back of your im310.

Rpm drops while adling causing 'grinding' sound while white smoke flows from behind or below radiator.


You should replace the cooling fan. With the ac on and no cooling fan, high pressure builds in the condensor and compressor bogging the engine down. When it gets too high a relief valve dumps and you get what appears to be white smoke. It's actually freon, hence the smell. I've replaced several PT cooling fans with the same symptoms.

Wrong Power Supply


If it doesn't work with batteries or the supplied power supply than your speakers are fried. Sorry for the bad news.

Burning smell and smoke from motor


Sounds like the transmission is jammed.  This will cause the motor to bog and burn.
