The 'smell/& the fact that the motor doesn't run'' indicates that the fan motor has burned up (electrically).
good luck!

My 2004 3400 closed system ,runs hot in town unless heater is on. driving up a mountain pass it gets very hot.on a flat highway runs normal. new t state,resivior cap, both fans work no leaks or smell


Radiator fan motor or radiator fan thermostat defective/

Also there is a relay that operates the fan motor

In town not enough air passing through radiator allowing it to over temp.. With heater fan running acts like cooling fan keeping engine cool

Highway driving ample air passing through radiator without fan.

Hill climbing requires cooling fan/

Hope this helps?

2004 honda civic...smell antifreeze ...cooling fans will not turn on


the main problem would be your radiator fans don't turn on. This would cause pressure to build in your radiator causing coolant to flow over into the coolant reservoir. sometimes you might see coolant on the floor your temp gauge should also read much higher than normal. you can connect your fans directly to your battery and drive the vehicle and see if problem still exists. if not then thermo switch etc would need to be checked.

My computer just went belly up! It is a reconditioned IBM ThinkCenter, a little over 2 years old. It was running normally and then all hell broke lose, cooling fan went berserk sounding like a hair dryer...


Since your PC is two years old its recommended to check your computers hardware check your cooling fan
specially CPU cooling fan if that fan is broken your pc wont work and be careful turning on your PC again and again will burn the processor

When plugged in the unit starts to smell hot like an electical burn,


Turn it on turn it over and see if the fan is operating. If not power your lap top off and replace the fan. You may have to not use this computer until the fan is replaced it is advisable not to. The smell you have may be dust smell when it gets hot. Clean throughly and make sure that all the dust is out of your computer. Also recommended a lap fan also which goes underneath the laptop to assist with cooling.
Lap tops are very touchy and need to be kept cool at all times otherwise you will be purchasing a new lap top if you do not take care of the cleaning or the cooling or the fan not working or spinning slowly. Check all this out. Critical if you do not understand what I mean take your computer to a local shop for immediate care. I hope this assisted you. John

It smells like an electrical fire in the charge port!! The cord is plugged in.. and the light shows that it's charging.. but it's not.. and will not turn on.. cuz the batterry is dead!!!! I don't know if...


This could be the smell of dust getting hot and smelling. I would shut this down and clean it out also get a cooling underneath cooling fan for it as well. This is what dust can do over time it does smell like a short so have this looked at and do not keep using it until the machine is cleaned the cooling fan is checked out as well as the undercarriage cooling fan would be most helpful as well.

Burned electrical smell from the freezer compartment


I would check the defrost thermostat usually a button type switch with 2 wires on it mounted to the freezer coil. Size depends on type ; 1 type is about quarter size, 1 is about dime size, and electronic sensor (not had one burn out but the board could smell like your description but I believe these are not in the freezer section).

I have had these cook out and smell up the freezer section before. And if they go out guess what it wont defrost either. If your fan motor goes out it might smell and wont cool all over but the frost should be minimal.


Also a bad defrost heater could make a smelly situation it is usually a black rod or aluminum colored and the rubber ends can burn and make a smell.
If you find its the heater, I would replace the defrost thermostat as well. Its suppose to cut off the heater before it gets too hot.

If this helps you find your problem please rate me as high as possible if not please post back with more information as to what you did find. Thanks for using fix ya and good luck.

TOYOTA CAMRY 2001, WHEN SHOULD THE FANS SPIN?


when the car is running, there is enough air to cool the radiator, however, when when the AC kick on, the radiator absorb more of the heat from the AC coil. there by require more cooling. the 2 fan are there for that purpose.
as far as the smell of antifreeze, you nee to check all of the cooling hoses, in the engine compartment and under the dash. sound like there is a small leak some place.
