I suspect the start relay burnt on the compressor. Now the compressor can not turn on. You need to repalce the relay.

Car dashboard lights wont turn on and smell of burning wires


If you're smelling insulation burning - STOP. Fuses should be blowing before insulation melts / burns.

Have the car checked my a trusted mechanic before using anything in the car that makes the wiring burn or melt.

Burning electrical smell, refrigerator hot at lt side (freezer side) and at center area between doors


When you smelt this was the fan in freezer off? If so it is most likely in defrost mode and the smell is from frost melting and hitting the heater in the freezer. The hot on the sides and in the center. Is this outside the box? If so this is normal. There are coils inside the frame of a fridge that stay warm to eliminate condensation. Sometimes they shift and get too close to the wall and thats what you are feeling.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact.

Hi,

Describe your Kenmore 53652 / 53654 / 53659 Side by Side Refrigerator Unit is not cooling. Stopped working after power outage


Kenmore Coldspot 106.53652300
I just fixed my neighbors fridge that suffered from a power surge. She explained that she smelt a burning smell in the kitchen and the next day the fridge and freezer were not cold. Of course she did not share the burnt smell part until after I discovered the starter relay and the capacitor were burnt on the compressor. She purchased the new starter kit and capacitor from a local supply company and while installing them I discovered the compressor fan was not running which also meant the compressor was not getting any power. I removed the screws that held the control panel on the fridge side (right side) and inspected the circuit board which I discovered a burnt trace on the board for the compressor control relay. I fixed the board by soldering a piece of solid core wire across it and it works great!
Make sure you shop around for your parts. The BIG local supplier here in Tulsa wanted $65 for the starter kit and $65 for the capacitor. We shopped around and found another supplier in Tulsa that sold them for $25 each and they were FSP parts!

The sweet smell is your engine coolant,check for a leak under the hood,look for green fluid,Have your catalyst checked,for the other problems,and your fuel presure checked,or change the fuel filter.Either of these should help a little.

I heard lots of clicking, smelt a vague burning smell, then machine stopped


IT SOUNDS LIKE A PROBLEM WITH THE MOTOR,WIRING, OR TIMER. SOMETIMES THE TIMER MOTOR WILL START CLICKING AFTER IT GETS SOME AGE ON IT. IT IS UNUSUAL FOR THAT TO CAUSE YOUR PROBLEM. THE SLIGHT BURNING SMELL COULD BE THE MOTOR. IT MIGHT HAVE TRIPPED THE OVERLOAD ON THE MOTOR FROM GETTING TOO HOT. AFTER IT HAS COOLED AWHILE, THE OVERLOAD SHOULD RESET ITSELF. YOU MAY WANT TO ADVANCE THE TIMER TO SPIN AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN NOW.

SOME RETAILERS OFFER NO CHARGE ON THE SERVICE CALL IF YOU END UP BUYING A NEW REPLACEMENT APPLIANCE FROM THEM. ASK AROUND.

IF YOU GET THAT DEAL, IT'S TO YOUR ADVANTAGE TO CALL FOR SERVICE. IF HE FIXES IT, YOU HAVE YOUR WASHER READY TO GO, IF NOT, AND YOU BUY A NEW ONE FROM THAT RETAILER, NO CHARGE FOR THE SERVICE CALL.

Burning Smell


sounds like the motor is fried or seized up, which would explain that smell.
