That sounds really bad. You might try opening the case and looking for burn marks. I'd bet you will find lots of dust too. Maybe a careful cleaning operation will help, but it sounds terminal.

Had 1 cup coffee still heating in the pot, then heard spattering sounds and a burning smell. Turned it off.In making next pot, beans grind but won't make coffee. Water just sits in the reservoir.


Possible the "spattering sounds" you heard were in fact wires shorting out, which coincides with the burnt smell. You didn't mention the model of coffee maker. But if you can, unplug and disassemble to check. Or if under warranty, send in for repair or replacement. In any case unplug from wall to be safe.

I set my brand new GE oven to bake and it almost immediately started to smoke. It continued to smoke even after I turned it off. It smelled like burning wood. It kept smoking (15 minutes) until I unplugged...


Wherever you bought it from should have a warranty. Get them out there to look at it. The smell of burning wood is odd. Check to make sure all of the packing material was removed prior to installation. That could be burning cardboard on the outer casing of the oven.

Electrical burnt smell


If you had a short in the starter motor windings and held the key, you'd get a click and a burning smell. That would be the insulation burning off the electrical windings. There's a 40-amp max fuse in this circuit.

Just stopped working. No burning smell. When start button pushed, some kind of tiny "click" sound heard around the timer.


The click is most likely the timer motor moving the dial on the timer. The motor circuit on American dryers is 120 volts whilst the heater requires 240 volts to operate its 5k element. The motor circuit always has the fuse in it. The heating element has limits mounted on it but they only kill power to the element and not the motor. Fuses are usually located on the blower housing next to the control thermostat. MORE HERE

Bristles quit rotating and smelled like something was burning. It isn't the belt that turns the bristles. Can't afford a repairman, can you help me fix it?


Belt can reamin intact but still jam and burn. It won't necessarily break. I suggest you remove the bottom of the vacuum where the bristles spins and where the belt is located. You may have something jammed in there. You may need to remove the bristle to get the belt out. Inspect the belt and replace after clearing the obstruiction.

I have the same problem!


don't do that anymore! If you're lucky, there is just something caught in the vent fan, if not you will probably need a new motor.

Not Cooling and has burning smell


If you are looking for help, one must explain the problem in detail, described properly, for one one the internet to review. For myself, a would require more details of your refrig, to properly explain a resolution. Otherwise a general answer is not worth much. If you have the fully electronic temperature controlled unit, then the components can be easily chedked in 5 minutes, by the on-board service diagnostic computer. One needs to know the general operating knowledge fo the refrig, which is naturally available, since you operated it for some years. Anyway, a layman can check it out by doing what is natural. Since the refrig defrosted, it has shut down. Four years is too short for genral compressor defects. Put the power plug in and check for operating sounds. Just a few seconds. You mentioned smell (outside or inside), ket a paper tube, like a paper towel center, and sniff the evaporator motor, then the condenser motor. I will recheck later, and see if you want to continue, this troubleshooting. Regards fmauka
