Question about Coleman Heating & Cooling
No solution from me, I came because I am having the same problem! I woke up this morning to the smell of burning wires or burning plastic, I cant really tell what the burn smell is, but I know a burning smell when I smell it!! I walked all through the house, and couldn't see anything, so I started following my nose, lol and I went around unplugging things in the house, and turned the central air off. still didn't know what the smell was, I ran to the store to get coffee, and when I came back I could hardly smell it anymore, so I knew whatever it was, I took care of it by unplugging everything and shutting air off, well I really couldn't leave it alone because the smell was so strong earlier, so I went through the house again with no luck. finally I decided to turn the air on again, cuz it was getting kinda steamy in the house, seeing how it is summer and all, well it started to stink really really bad again, so I got a chair and stood on it in the hallway and put my nose in the vent that air was coming out of, and BAM!!! the smell hit me like a ton of bricks. it make me feel like passing out cuz it was so strong. Anyway, that's when I knew something is def. wrong with the central cooling unit. so I turned it off once again, now I don't really smell it anymore, but im waiting till 8:00 when my landlord office opens, then im calling her right away!!!!!!

Quite often, if you smell like a plastic burning smell, one of the capacitors is faulty, and should be checked immediately. Quite often the compressor start capacitor, will get hot and start to melt. Have it checked by qualified technician or electrician, as they are dangerous and can give a fatal shock if not experienced with handling them, even when power is shut off. $20-$30 part, and 1/2hr. labor should take care of it. The cover on roof unit, has to be removed to access the capacitors, so watch for bees, wasps, when you do so. Make sure power is off at breaker panel.
