This AEG range has been fine for 3 years from new. I have smelled the burning smell characteristic of circuit board burning out, but only when the oven is turned on. Yesterday the unit fused the the main house cooker circuit MCB. As this burning smell is continuing after resetting the MCB I would be grateful for any identification of the problem and any way to fix this.

Some electrical short stay there, I suggest to check each electrical circuit that is connected to this fuse; check description or legend in the fuse label. With other details, we could send some electrical diagrams.
The person who installed the oven didn't do the connections up tight enough.
I would replace the breaker/power switch with a new one and trim back the wires if the burning is in the breaker. If on the rear of the oven, same applies with badly tightened connections.
If in doubt, call a qualified electrician. That will be better than having a fire!
Electrical burning is a bad sign. Unplug it and have it serviced! When you smell electrical burning that mean the resistance on the circuit has increased beyond the acceptable thresholds and the safety features such as ground fault, fuse and breakers are not operating. This is the cause of 100% of electrical fires! Take it seriously.
If it smells like an oily burn then it is just the oil burning off of the new parts in dryer, this is common. If it smells like electrical burning then call the manufacturer for repair. Could be a wire burning and if it is new it is covered under warranty.
Anytime that you smell that electrical burning smell on a vacuum cleaner, this is the motor going bad. There are two distinctive burning smells in fixing vacuum cleaners, the electrical burning smell which is the motor, and a rubber burning smell which is the belt.
The bagless vacuums cleaners in general, their motors last usually no more then 3-5 years. The motor in bagless vacuums work much harder then the motors in their bagged counterparts.
The motors in Eureka vacuums can range in price from $70-$120. If you can provide me with the exact model number on your vacuum cleaner (can be found on the bottom or the back of the machine on the sticker that also contains the serial number) I will be able to get you the part number, and price of the motor that's used in your vacuum.
It may be worth considering to just get a new vacuum cleaner at this point. If you'd like me to give you a personalized recommendation specifically for your unique cleaning needs, I'd be honored to do so. Please just let me know what types of floors you have mostly in the home and I'll be happy to share my knowledge of vacuum cleaners.
I hope this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be sure to rate the repair helpful so other Fixya users that have this same problem can easily find the answer.
It can be repaired.
There is a short circuit inside may be of dust gathering on contacts or the contacts are worn out due to prolonged use thus touching the heating coil or body some where inside. Smell coming is definitely burning of wires inside.
Open the toaster and you may be able to see the burning spot
you can unplug the unit , and reomve the lower aces panel (3 screws along the front bottom of unit) youll probalby see an excess of lint built up in which case you can vacuum it out, and then check/clean and or replace your dryer vent
My Smeg cooker worked fine for 5 years. Then I noticed that the
fan which stays on after you turn off the oven did not ever turn off,
unless you switched the oven off at the fuse box. I think this is a fan
that cools the oven down, but some bit of it is now broken because it
doesn't realise that the oven has cooled down. It smells funny when you
first turn it on, so I don't know if that is an electrical fault smell.
Model possibly 70cm A420-5, but could be an earlier model (bought in
April 2000). Is double oven with 4 rings on top, 70cm wide.
