Your hi-limit switch is operating properly to save you from starting it on fire, check for a faulty cycling switch or the board that controls the heat sensor

Once dryer heats up towards end of cycle, drum quits spinning and won't restart, only hums


It could be a couple of things there could be lint on the motor shaft which will cause the motor to run hot and make to over temperature switch open or the hot air output on the back of the dryer may be plugged, just before or around the blower. Good luck

Loud noices when running,some burned rubber smell


The only rubber part is the belt that drives the drum around. The belt rides on a tensioner which has a pulley on it with a bearing built into it. When the bearing goes bad the pulley will not turn freely causing the belt to get hot and smell. Its time for a new pully and bearing assembly for your dryer

Overheating/burnt rubber smell


classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

Refrigerator burning rubber smell when it tries to turn on


sounds like the relay on the compressors is getting hot and cutting the unit out, if the fridge is quite old it may well be the run windings gone short circuit in the compressor pot. The relay switches from start to run windings so may be firing the start circuit, switching over to a shorted run winding, and then getting hot and activating the thermal cutout and hence the burnig smell, plus the start and rapid shut down of the compressor.
