Dryer runs for a short period then starts to sqeal from the back and when you stop it and open the door you can smell a burning smell .


sounds like a bad belt and or pulley. If you take the top of the dryer off you can use a piece of candle wax to lube the belt and see if that makes the squealing stop to verify the belt/pulley as the source of the squeal. If so, you can but a new belt and pulley kit for about $30 and replace yours. Good Luck!

Purchased a winter pine candle - kept the wick trimmed but it burned smoke all the time and burned down very fast


incorrect composition of the wax
excessive flammable component used--could be the oil used to get the fragrance

:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Our Rinnai gasheater is in 'n working condition but since we used it the white walls and ceilings are covered with black marks - I am worried that it could be dangerous - any advice?


Unfortunately, you failed to mention the Model Number and whether its a flue-less or Vented unit. In either case, the black streaks you see on the walls and ceilings is soot. If it's a flue-less unit, this is an indication that the unit has not received routine maintenance on a regular basis. The sooting is caused by a dirty or clogged burner or low gas pressure.

Also, burning scented candles and operating the heater at the same time, will cause soot. Not from the heater, but from the candles. All candles soot, but scented candles soot more than others. Combine them with the warm moist heat and they will soot 50 times worse. If this is the case, it's the candles sooting, not the heater. Stop burning the candles while the heater is in operation.

Is the soot dangerous? Yes, to the point that you are breathing it in, when it;s floating in the air. The sooting didn't occur over night, it has been doing it for sometime. You finally realized it, when you saw the black streaks. Stop using the heater until it is professionally serviced by and authorized Rinnai Service Technician and the walls and ceiling are cleaned.

You can either remove the soot yourself or have it professionally done. Then, you should prime paint the walls and ceiling with a sealer like Kilz, before repainting. All curtains or draperies should be washed or dry cleaned. All furniture and carpeting should be vacuumed thoroughly.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a blueflame probane heater ventless and when burning it has a slight smell. Is that normal for this ventless heater.


It depends on what it smells like. Initially, when the unit is installed it should be burned on HIGH for 45 minutes to an hour. Doings that, burns off all the oils and seasons the heater. Sort of like seasoning a cast iron skillet. After that, the newness odors should be gone. It's normal to get a whiff of gas when the burner lights or turns off. It should dissipate rather quickly.

Although Vent-free (ventless) heaters are very safe to use and are 99.5% efficient, their one drawback is that pick up strong household odors, like strong cleaning products, carpet shampoos, new paint or stain odors, strong cooking odors, etc and make them worse. That's why it's always best not to use the heater during or after painting, for at least 2 weeks. Although your nose may not detect the paint odor, the heater can and will make it worse. Also, always use your range's exhaust hood when cooking. Hopefully, it's the vented type and not one of do nothing recycling hoods.

Also, thoroughly cleaning the heater inside and out , at least once a season, will go along way in reducing odors and maintaining the longevity of your heater.

One other caution, do not burn scented candles and operate the heater at the same time. Scented candles soot anyway, but adding the warm moist, comfortable heat from the vent-free heater, will cause them to soot 50 times worse. Trust me, it's not the heater, it's the scented candles sooting.

Hope this helped explain some of the things that you asked about and more. If I can be of further help, please ask me through the Leave a Comment link.

Burning smell coming from my 2003 jeep liberty smells like a burning candle. Looked under the hood and the smell appears to come from a little electical box mounted on the passenger wheel side


I would take it to a shop right away. Do you see any fluids on the ground after you park or are you low on coolant or oil? This could be a electrical problem on its own. If you don't know what your doing don't go messing around with it.
