Smoke and burning plastic smell in microwave oven


Burning plastic, not food? A component has overheated badly then, with a plastic case. The main suspect would be the high voltage capacitor in the magnetron supply. This is cheap and easily replaced ONLY IF you know what you are doing and can diagnose the fault. If you don't then DO NOT take the case off the unit as fatal voltages can be present inside even if the unit is unplugged.

I'd just buy another, as they are generally uneconomical to have repaired by a service tech.

Strong ''burning plastic'' type smell coming through heating ducts.


it sounds like you have a main air movement system motor that is burning out. it will probably quit on you in the next few days. likely cost to repair from company 375-700 somtimes more if you have a variable speed furnace, in which case you should consider replacing the whole furnace for what it would cost for the motor on one of those.

Take out the battery and run just on external power, see if the smell goes away. If it does, check to see if there is a recall on that battery.

This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

Strong smell of burning plastic from laptop fan seems to not be working


Does your laptop still work? If it does I would turn it off immediately. It will depend which fan is not working. If it is your processor fan your chip is probably fried. Either way it is not safe to use until you get it checked out.
