I agree with Pirat3. It also could be a swollen cap ready to blow out. Check the motherboard for brown marks and the top of the caps for bulging.

It is probable the solder points where the power cord comes into the xbox may have come partially unsolderd. This would cause an arc of electricity which would produce that burnt electrical smell. The xbox would have to be opened up and power supply removed and resoldered.

1998 Duo-therm Brisk Air compressor not coming on. Smelled of burnt electrical when first happened. How do I check to see what the problem is?


Burnt smell is not a good sign. If your compressor is not turning and the clixon does not shut off power you will hear a humming sound and start smelling as unit burns it self up. Chances are your compressor has seized and needs to be replaced.

My Kenmore 80 series dryer seems to operate normally, except for a horrible "burnt chemical" smell in the dryed clothes. It almost smells like the gas is not exhausting correctly. Could it be the...


A lot of time a chemical smell is the result of blown capacity where the electrolitic is leaking out. Large caps are used in the moter start circuit and are usually located close to the motor. After awhile there will be an impact on the motor starting and the performance of your machine.

If it is the belt slipping you would get a burnt oil smell. If it was the blower motor or the drive motor it would be more of an electrical smell - burnt plastic type.

My 360 overheated and i smelled a hot electrical smell,cuold i send it in for repairs or is there a way to solve the problem myself.


Most likely you will have to send it in. If you have one of those warranty's from the retailer you got it from, you can probably take it there.
