Brand new portable air con- burn smell

Today we bought a brand new portable air conditioner. The one we had previously for 2 years all of a sudden started to smell like something was burning. I took it apart- it was nasty inside so i cleaned it, but still smelled the same. We went to get a better bigger unit today. We plugged it in... at first nothing... but now again this burning smell. What is going on? I plugged it into the same plug in the wall. I checked and that area is not hot or anything. The hose that brings air in from the outside is plastic, but the old one was plastic as well and we never had problems until a couple of days ago. Any ideas?

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

I just bought a 30K ventless wall mount heater and have a 24X30 insulated garage. I set it on 2 and it keeps it about 60 degress but the smell burns my eyes and stains my clothes. It's brand new. I have it...

You need to ventilate this area while the units running! This is potentially a lethal situation!
You are competing with a flame for oxygen and breathing the carbon monoxide gasses
from the heater! Both unacceptable scenarios! you can easily die in this environment!
I cannot stress this enough! You need to open a window or crack the door enough to allow air to circulte and gasses to vent out and escape, If the burning of eyes is really bad your unit may not have sufficient combustion air, I can t tell you without seeing it precisely, you better vent that room though!

Our brand new Frigidaire portable air conditioner emits a bad smell? what could have cause this?

Was it new out of the box or did you buy it as an open box? Is it more of a musty smell or more of a rotting smell? Does the compressor stay on when you turn it on, or is it cycling on and off? Let me know what you find out and we can go from there.

My PAC25 had a burning smell come from the unit and now when i turn it on i hear the hum of the compressor trying to turn but nothing else happens. it is a few years old and out of warranty so is there...

The burn smell is the fan motor cooking. I have the same unit and upon strip down the motors windings were fried. Now that hard part of finding a replacement.
