Smoke came from under fridge


When you let the smoke out of the wires, they don't work as well afterward! Sounds like a short and what was burning was wire insulation. The main components are the compressor and the fans.
Look for misshapen wires as that will be the best indicator of what has overheated.

Dodge ram engine smokes when stated and skips


What color smoke? Black is emissions related, blue/black your burning oil and white your burning anti-freeze. With the "skip" your REF to, you probably have a bad spark plug, wire, or bad cylinder and burning some oil or coolant. CK plugs , wires & do a compression test. Pressure test Radiator for head gasket leak.

Why does ovenstove vent smokes if baking is over 350


There is probably some built up grease in the vent and when it gets hot enough it burns which would cause it to smoke.

Smoke come from motor and now drill hardly moves .is new motor required or brushes


You will rarely get smoke from the brushes on electric tools. Smoke is usually a result of either the armature or field coils getting hot enough to melt or burn the varnish insulation off the wire which results in a loss of or no power because of shorting in the windings. You'll have to replace whichever part burned the windings and find out what caused the problem or you'll burn the new part the same way the original burned.

It sounds like the AC controls or the Interior blower fan shorted and the smoke you saw was the insulation melting off the wires. You need to get into the wiring under there and locate the burned wires. It won't be hard to identify which ones are the problem because they will be brittle and the insulation will be burned away.

You may have gotten the +pos and -neg cables crossed, causing the fusable link wire to burn out.
Check for the burned link wire between the alternator and the battery side of the starter solenoid on
top of the right fender well, and splice in a new fusable link wire, any parts store should have this.
The fusable link is there to protect the charging system from damage when things like this happen.
But once it's running be sure to check the charging system. Hope this helps.
