SOURCE: The inside of my Kenmore Series 70 gas dryer

you might have lint drawn into the air intake of the burner .. or air flow could be restricted by a clogged outlet tube .. in both cases you have to get inside the machine and clean it properly .. that should be done every couple of years anyhow .. the passagways inside the machne must be cleaned as well as the 3 or 4 inch hose that goes to the outside .. also make sure the flapper valve on the outside exhaust is free and not clogged by animals, grass or lint ..

I was women up to a strong smell of burnt popcorn in my room. It's no where else in the house except for the room. My room is also where the breaker box is. Could this be an electrical problem?


Short answer - yes. While a "burnt popcorn smell" is not typical of the smell of an electrical problem, it is possible. You may also hear buzzing or crackling sounds coming from the panel, too. This is an indication of a loose, overheating connection that should be checked out sooner rather than later.

The fact that you were awakened by the smell, suggests that it was night time and likely that most of the other people in the house were also sleeping. The major electric appliances in the hose were probably off because of this - except for maybe the electric water heater, washer or dryer (they work just fine unattended), and sleeping people do not make or eat pop corn.

Good luck!

Everything is working on the Dryer but it has a very strong. "Burnt" smell inside and it gets on the laundry. What is causing it to have that Burnt smell?


burnt smell like rubber or like lint burning whens the last time you delinted your dryer? A dryer should actually be delinted at least once a year maximum I personally delint mine every 4 months with a family of 4 lint doesn't just go on you lint screen and away it goes unscrew that bottom panel and with a flashlight have a look inside on the other hand if it is a burnt wire smell you probably want to look near the through the same spot but on the left side back where the heater is located usually one of the wires connecting to the heater ends up singeing or a thermistor blows out you will get this smell if you happen to have the model number i could send you a schematic of how it comes apart if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it how im able to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick

Need to clean air filter of burned popcorn smell


You would be better off to replace the filter. Purchase two and use the first one to capture the remaining smoke residue. Then install the other clean one to keep microwave free of smell. Check the web site www.partselect.com for the replacement filter. If you found any of these suggestions helpful, please rate my solution. D. Lange
