Question about Razor MX500 Dirt Rocket

Charge port (blk. wire melted at the end) Smoke from motor

My son rode his mx500 up a small hill. The motor had a strong smell (burning smell) and stopped running. There was also some smoke coming off the motor. Also, the charge port (black wire) melted where it connects ( on the back side where you plug the charger in. silver prongs). What caused the port to short out? Should I replace the fuse? If so, where is the fuse located? Will the bike need a new motor?

I'm sure it already is cooled down but it needs to cool down after an episode like that. Hopefully the motor stopped running as an over heating issue. If the charger wire melted on the motor where it plugs in, it was to HOT to plug it in at that moment, you should only charge a cool battery. Fuse you can check for look somewhere in the area of the battery, you might need to remove a cover or two to find, if there is one or maybe a fusible link is somewhere in the system.Without seeing this particular bike I cannot tell you exactly where to look. Maybe try online they have service centers for these bikes maybe in your area type in the info on the bikes info plate somewhere on the bike, as a random search for parts and info. Good luck!

Accidentally overfilled the A/C on 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 and now there is smoke and a burning smell when I try to run the A/C. Did I charge the wrong port or is this normal for overcharging the A/C?


Can't charge wrong port adaptor fits only one port. The smoke and smell is because of the overfill. To much pressure in the system. How much did you over charge? Might be able to help get it back to correct charge

Burning rubber smell whilst going up hill


This sounds like an oil leak. Look for leaks at valve covers, and other areas above the exhaust. It often is the burning off of this small volume of oil, that makes the smell like you describe. Inspect the whole exhaust...Something is melting, somewhere.

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.

That burning smell is kind of a death sentence. At least a switch or more likely coils are burnt out.

Maytag Neptune Dryer with strong "burned electrical wiring" smell


Sounds like the motor went out. Before trying to start it it needs to be inspected. If you are not comfortable opening up the cabinet then I would would recommend calling a service tech. If you need further assistance please let me know.

A smell like burning wires when l go up a hill


hello drk...the only time you smell this is when the engine is under a load? Does is seem to be coming from the a/c vents? Any smoke? I've never heard this complaint on the 2005 6.0 powerstroke. A strong coolant or sulphur smell is what most owners report. Could you give a little more detail please?

Rode all day in snow brought inside to charge now power irratic


I would take the motor controller out, remove the end cap without wire on it and smell the insides. If it smells burned, you need to take out the other 5 screws and see what smoked. In mine, I had corrosion and Q5 was missing 25% of the package. I cleaned the corrosion with a old tooth brush and 99.9% alcohol that I had. Replaced the part and all was fine. There is a trick to installing the bracket that holds Q5 and D11 to the case (a heatsink). I put the board and wires in the case and secured with 4 screws. I put the assembly in a vise with the side hole on the bottom. Align the bracket with the outside hole on top of Q5 and D11 (use a small wire that goes thru both holes) I took an x-acto blade- a flat one and slid it on top of the bracket that is now laying on top of Q5 and D11. By pulling up slightly you can put pressure on the bracket holding it in place. Insert the retaining screw and other end cap.
