Have you recently painted anywhere in your home. And I mean anywhere? Paint fumes or other chemical type cleaners or solvents will get in the elements and put off that whole gas or oil smell. If no, have you put any type of clothes in the dryer that may have had some paint or anything else petroleum based on them to dry. That also could have caused this smell as well. If your hot water heater runs on propane or natural gas, check it careful for leaks. This could be a serious situation as a major explosion could happen if it is leaking. Leave the house and call 911 immediatly from a safe distance. I doubt that this is the problem, but be safe than sorry. Let me know if none of these are the culprits. Thanks and let me know.

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.

Our dryer gave out a burn smell like a belt had broken, and even though plugged in, it will not come on. We took it a part some and didn't see anything wrong. We only took down the front facing to see the...


Dryers have a thermal fuse... typically a ceramic assembly 2-3 inches filled with resin and wires attached...usually near the motor. This may account for the burn smell. Turn the power off and replace .

Strong fuel smell from AC


If you're experiencing a strong fuel smell, there's most likely a leak in the engine compartment. The AC will cool incoming air unless the "recirculate" button is pressed. The incoming air is what has the fuel smell, indicating a leak in the engine compartment. CAUTION: leaking fuel in the engine compartment is extremely dangerous and can lead to a fire. Please have the car diagnosed by a professional immediately.

Dryer burning smell


Have you painted or stained in your house or apartment recently? The smell gets everywhere, dryer, stove, heating unit. I recently primed with Kilz and the clothes from my dryer smelled burned. When I called for service, it was the first question the service person asked and said they made a lot of useless trips only to find nothing wrong with the appliance. That was my case. I had to rewash clothes and let the dryer run with towels for a while

Dryer smells of natural gas


Of course, this applies to gas dryers only. If you smell natural gas near your gas dryer, do not light matches or a lighter and don't operate electrical switches or anything that might spark, igniting an explosion. Immediately shut off the gas valve that serves the dryer. If the smell is mild, ventilate the area, wait until the air is clear, and re-light your pilot light. If the smell is strong, move everyone outside, leaving the doors open to ventilate the house. Turn off the gas supply valve --located by the gas meter on the gas inlet pipe-- by rotating the valve one quarter turn with an adjustable wrench. The valve's oblong stem should be perpendicular (at a right angle) to the inlet pipe to stop the flow of gas. Call your gas supplier (or the fire department) from a neighbor's phone or a cellular phone outside the house.
