The only way to repair this design flaw in Frigidaire Affinity dryers is to have the experience in appliance repair to pry open and clean out the (inaccessible to the normal consumer) burner duct which will accumulate debris through the too large vent holes allowing the lint, small stuff drop down into the vent which in turn will burn up when it gets close enough to the burner to ignite. If you don't have the experience to manually disassemble the dryer, you're out of luck. There's no other way to clean out that sealed unit. If you don't clean it out, it can cause a fire.

Microwave smell like burning rubber

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are receiving a burning rubber smell from your Frigidaire microwave. I also see that your appliance will run for a couple of seconds, and then you hear a weird noise, followed by a burning rubber smell. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician, especially when dealing with your microwave. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing that sound as well as the burning rubber smell. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Are you mechanically inclined? You may have several problems. 1st, heating element is most likely burnt out. Then I would check ball and socket assembly that back of drum fits into. Also check felt in front of machine that drum rides on. May need competent service person on this.

My frigidaire dryer model number gler341as2 is giving me a burning smell why is that?

Hi kmcgilvery...
That burning smell is probably a lint build up in the blower system of the dryer.
You will need to remove the back of the dryer and look for the vent tubing going to the hose connected to the outside. Once you find the tubing then disassemble and clean the tubing and blower wheel of dust...then clean your flexible vent tubing you have attached to the back of the dryer.
