My kenwood gives out some strange smell as if the cables inside are melting when I start it. The last time I used it, I had to stop as it couldn't blend. Please help, its quite new!!


DANGER !!!

If ever you smell electrical burning, you MUST TURN OFF the device and have this checked immediately by an authorised auto electrician.

Failure to do this can turn into a possible car fire!

Washing machine wont turn on or do anything


Hi
As I understand you, there does not seem to be anything wrong with the belt in spite of the burning smell. have you checked the fuses. Often there are small fuses that distribute the power to different parts of the machines, they are most often situated near or in the control panel. Check that.
good luck

My car smells like its burning oil, and there is oil in my spark plug wells. Guy at auto parts store says I need to replace oil gaskets that go around spark plugs. Is this a valid diagnosis and if so is it...


As far as I know spark plugs only have a metal type washer to seal, and there is no other oil seal needed. I have know oil to leak from rocker cover and fill spark plug wells, but tis also often covers engine. Burning oil smell couldbe from oil going onto the outside of hot engine. Check oil loss via dip stick. Clean all oil from outside engine to find out sites of leaks. Hope this helps.

The unit works as of right now...but there is a smell of something burning


Quite often, if you smell like a plastic burning smell, one of the capacitors is faulty, and should be checked immediately. Quite often the compressor start capacitor, will get hot and start to melt. Have it checked by qualified technician or electrician, as they are dangerous and can give a fatal shock if not experienced with handling them, even when power is shut off. $20-$30 part, and 1/2hr. labor should take care of it. The cover on roof unit, has to be removed to access the capacitors, so watch for bees, wasps, when you do so. Make sure power is off at breaker panel.

Burning smell


There's a number of reasons to smell burning after a washing machine cycle. It's a 220V appliance, so if it short's out it will cause problems. It's more likely the motor being overloaded making it hot and causing the electrical burning smell, or a short that's overheating something electrical. Check to see if the belt that spins the whole barrel is melted or worn anywhere. Inspect the wiring that's attached to the system that engages spin, which is different from agitation by the big tower.
If these both check out, an trip to the Maytag Man might have to fix overloading motors or relays, or switches, if anything turns up in your search for the source of the electrical smoke. Ozone is what you are smelling, FYI.

Loud banging sound when dryer is on much like when tennis shoes are drying, smell a burned rubber smell when door opens


Sound like either your belt or your bearings. Either way, I wouldn't run it anymore until I got a professional appliance repair guy out to check it. We wouldn't want your house to burn down. Very dangerous!! I would also unplug it until then as well. Good luck and stay safe!

Model 63259 bought about 2 months ago. I went to


you can check and see if there is a fuse on the microwave, if not it may have just burned out, its probably still under warranty so try to take it back for a replacement
