Definitely sounds like an electrical problem. It is possible that water was causing a short, and the wires may be burning, OR the windings on the fan motor are shorting out and overheating. If it is the motor, it would need to be replaced. You need a technician to see which of these two is the problem.
If it is just the wires, it shouldn't be too expensive ... but a fan motor could cost you quite a bit!

My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen


Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

Burning rubber smell as well as a noise when I run the ac for long period of time. The car is a 2007 pt cruiser convertible (NOT Turbo) 4 cylinder. If I put the vehicle in park and run the air conditioner...


check your ac belts and pulleys. if there ok then possibly your ac compressor. your compressor not only holds freon but also oil it could be low and its burning your compressor

Smoke is coming out of the a/c


Ice probably formed on the outside of the unit and the a/c is working to defrost itself. Check out this page: http://andysair.blogspot.com/2010/01/looks-like-smoke-is-coming-out-of-my.html

Water leaks out all over the floor from the window air conditioner


you need to make sure of two things.

1) the AC is 'tilted backwards' just a little bit - to allow the water (condensate water from the evap coil) to drip from the bottom of the AC - out the 'condensate drain hole' - sometimes into a drain hose (usually rubber) or just through the hole to somewhere outside where it doesn't hurt anything.

2) make sure the - condensate drain hole, and drain hose - (if one is used) is clear and not clogged up - to allow the condensate water to drain.

hope this helps

Frigidaire window unit with heat and a/c smoke & burning smells


Hi, Anytime you turn a unit on like this and it smells and smokes, something is wrong. Did it smell as though it was electrical burning? Usually the blower motor is the first motor to go as they collect all of the return air and dust from the air and clog up the windings. They get hot and start to smoke, and you will know due to the smell of electrical wiring. I would turn it back on and see if it starts up and runs. If the motor hesitates in anyway, turn it off, or unplug it.If it is wired directly into a box, find out where the breaker is. If you are in fear of it catching on fire, call a air conditioning company out. I have seen them smoke like crazy but never had one catch on fire, never. I would turn it on, it will trip the breaker if the motor fails. Just watch it closely. If you can pull the front cover off and then turn it on, you may be able to see where the smoking is coming from, a motor ect.
Sincerely,

E5 keeps coming up and now it smells like burt rubber


E5 is water at top probe when starting rinse. If you have burnt smell, it's probably the sump heater on with little or no water over it. Clean and check the 3 probes and their connectors.
