SOURCE: Burning smell and icing

Sounds like your blower motor in your furnace or air handler has burned up. shut the unit down and replace the motor. make sure the ice is melted and the unit is dry before you turn it back on.

SOURCE: the air conditioner smells like burning plastic

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.

1997 blazer,heater bad smell when on

Is it a bad smell or a sweet like maple syrup smell. If its sweet you got a coolant leak probably heater core. Bad smell possible causes burning something up. I would run some water in the in the air intake below your wipers just to see if it changes. Not much but a little. Better or worse in cold tempers. Hwo about when the car first start or has run awhile does the smell get better or worse. More feed back please.

Water collecting on driver's side floor of my 2002 mitsubishi gallant

If your car is using / loosing water.... or the air smell sweet in the car vents then heater core is leaking. If your not loosing water from the radiator and doee not smell like that sweet anti-freeze smell then your airconditioner evaporator drain is clogged. You can attempt to clear the evaporator drain by locating the drain outlet and shoving a small soild stranded wire up through the drain vent. Make sure you have the blower motor and the air-conditioner on when trying to clear the evaporator drain. Be careful NOT to shove the solid strand wire into the evaporator coil while trying to clear the drain. The only other option is to remove the AC system evaporator lower cover and clear the drain which takes hours and hours of work.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
