Possible that the motor was loaded when the shirt got caught into the drive. Allow the machine to cool offf , open the rear/back panel and check to see the heated component. Can be the motor, the capacitor or the belt slipping by. After cooling off and removing of the struck shirt if the set done not works then checck if the motor has failed .

02 dodge strauts, smoke coming from tail pipe


what kind of smoke by that I mean what colour is it and when does is happen under hard acceleration, at idle, when first started, under light acceleration, idling a long time? blue smoke is burning oil, white smoke is burning coolant sometimes accompanied with a sweet smell, black smoke its running rich. those are the basics.

Westwood T1600 Smoking and burning smell?


Burning rubber smell indicates that you must have a worn out belt that is starting to slip making the burnt rubber smell. I think you need to replace at least one belt, maybe more upon inspection of the rest.

Burning smell


Hehe...Well, unfortunately without smelling it, or looking at the vehicle, there's not much I can do for you here. Check underneath for oil leaks getting onto the hot exhaust, or maybe a plastic bag stuck to exhaust, etc. Good luck.

While riding my Suz GS500F (2009) home in the rain last night I started seeing smoke coming from the lower left side of the motorcycle. Stopped at a light and loads of smoke came up through the fairing....


I presume that you were riding it back from the dealer when you had the smoke problem ?? in that case one possible cause could be that when they serviced it they got some oil on the exhaust pipe and when the pipe got hot it burned it off. let me know if that helps or not. Alex.

When running it smells like something is burning


Hi

If it smells like burning rubber, then your belt is probably slipping due to having lost tension and needs to be replaced. If it's another smell, it could be the motor burning out, but that is often accompanied by smoke. There could also be something caught around the revolving brushes in the cleaning head. Lie the vacuum on it's side and make sure you can spin the brushbar freely by hand. Also check for any debris entangled in or obstructing the brushes. This would also cause the belt to slip resulting in a smell of burning rubber. It could also damage the motor so I suggest not using the vacuum until the source of the fault has been determined.

Instructions on replacing the belt can be found in your user manual. If you don't have one or need further instruction on how to do this, please post back for further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric.

Burning smell


Hi,
The burning smell can be cause by the Fuser. Maybe a piece of paper got jammed or if you have used any special media like labels or glossy paper if any of that got stuck in the fuser it will stay there until its burned out. Another thing could be that the HVPS is shorting out thus causing the smoke and the burning smell. The best option is to inspect the interior of the fuser and make sure there are no paper jammed in it.

Was hoovering when my DC04 made a funny high pitched noise then a whirring noise, this was accompanied by a smell of burning and a puff of smoke! Almost sounds like it might be a clutch slipping, is this...


OK... the DC04 doesn't have a clutch. My best guess is that the belt that drives the brush roll has broken. The smell of burning and smoke puff were probably caused by the motor suddenly speeding up when freed of its burden of driving the brush roll. For illustrated guidance on checking (and if necessary changing) the belt, go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC04 Belt Change Guide".
I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate this response. If not, please post a reply and I'll try again. Good luck!

A burning smell and steamy smoke come out when we open the door.


Normally, the last part of any cycle involves using the heater element inside, and at the bottom of, the dishwasher to give dishes a final hot rinse. Possibly some small plastic-type material has become melted and stuck to the element - which will remain hot even after all water is discharged. Hence the smell.
