I would have a service company look at it ASAP. That type of problem can cause extensive damage to the High Votage panel. Do not play it !

I have a 2005 astravan and the glowplug light has stopped working and can smell and see smoke in cab like an electric burning smell not diesel,can anyone help?


Get it to a good mechanic as soon as you can! An electrical smell AND smoke means a serious electrical short. Glow plugs use very high voltage so you risk a possible fire. There being no light means there could be a problem somewhere else in the system as well.

Smoke coming out air vents


Is it smoke or water vapor? If it's smoke, you probably have an electrical problem somewhere. If it's water vapor and you live in a very humid climate, it should dissipate soon after turning on the A/C. Is there a noticeable smell (burning plastic?) along with the smell? If so, have your car checked out by a qualified technician - it could be a fire hazard.

I have a Landcruiser VX 100 series HDJ101 and its taking out smoke and a burning smell from the front tires brakes. I changed the pads and skimmed the discs but the problem is still there. I have been told...


On the surface, it sounds like you've got a frozen brake caliper. Apart from smoke and a burning smell, you would notice the truck pulling to 1 side or another. Another symptom of a frozen caliper is decreased performance and mileage.

Frigidaire window unit with heat and a/c smoke & burning smells


Hi, Anytime you turn a unit on like this and it smells and smokes, something is wrong. Did it smell as though it was electrical burning? Usually the blower motor is the first motor to go as they collect all of the return air and dust from the air and clog up the windings. They get hot and start to smoke, and you will know due to the smell of electrical wiring. I would turn it back on and see if it starts up and runs. If the motor hesitates in anyway, turn it off, or unplug it.If it is wired directly into a box, find out where the breaker is. If you are in fear of it catching on fire, call a air conditioning company out. I have seen them smoke like crazy but never had one catch on fire, never. I would turn it on, it will trip the breaker if the motor fails. Just watch it closely. If you can pull the front cover off and then turn it on, you may be able to see where the smoking is coming from, a motor ect.
Sincerely,

I just replace convergence board on my akai tv and


There is a burnt capacitor somewhere in the unit. Look for any burnt or swelled up capacitors. You can also usually locate a bad cap if there is burn marks on the system board. Also test power supply with voltmmeter to make sure it is a constant volt reading.
