The fan motor or some other electrical component. Either way I would quit using it until it gets fixed as an A/C unit is cheaper than a house.

White smoke from air vents while ac was on,greasy film on window while defrost is on/heater coil?


Yes. The heater core is leaking bad. The white smoke is the coolant and steam. Be sure to add water to the radiator before you burn up the engine.

Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?


have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

Smoke coming out air vents


If it is smoke you will smell it as if there is burning plastic. Some ac units produce really cold air and what you may be seeing is frosted air from the evaporator coming out the vents. It is an indication that the evaporator is actually icing up and not working efficiently.

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

Smoke coming out air vents


Is it smoke or water vapor? If it's smoke, you probably have an electrical problem somewhere. If it's water vapor and you live in a very humid climate, it should dissipate soon after turning on the A/C. Is there a noticeable smell (burning plastic?) along with the smell? If so, have your car checked out by a qualified technician - it could be a fire hazard.

My air conditioner on my 1999 kia sportage smell like smoking and like burning went turn on


do you turn on fan when using a/c ! if so heres a few causes-- burning smell in car, blower motor is going bad, or resistor is burning up.the resistor controls the fan speeds. good-day !


The burning smell could be due to gas leakage in the engine compartment. The gas smell is being sucked into the fresh air intake of the air conditioner. It can be avoided by checking either fuel pressure regulator or fuel injector.

This is the first time we have used the heat in our Forest River Puma Travel Trailer. When we turned it on, the smoke alarm started to chirp. There is a newness like dust burning off smell to the heated...


Usually if it's new, there will be some burn off. Make sure propane detector and smoke alarm, as well as carbon monoxide detector, if you have one, are working. Smell and any smoke should burn off after running a while, if not have it checked to be sure. I'd recommend running it with windows open and roof vents open and any exhaust fans at stove, and roof vents turned on for a while, then shut it off, let trailer air out good, then close windows etc, and see if it's better.

I have a 1998 Expedition Eddie Bauer 2wd 5.4L. I was driving down the road the other day w/o any air or heat turned on, and a foul smell started coming out of the vents where the ac and heater air come out...


something near the a/c vent (under your hood) started to burn or burnt something stuck in there like leaves or plastic etc. check your lines and fuels, make sure nothing's leaking or dried up.
