Hi,
The pop was the arcing of electric somewhere in the A/C unit.
Either there is a wire rubbed through, a capacitor blew or a connections somewhere was loose and make sparks...
Open the unit up and you will see the black part that smoked somewhere...then you can figure out if it is fixable or not...

Heard a pop and then an electrical smell. Unit is working but a faint electrical smell occurs each time unit used. Should I continue using it? It is built in with a trim kit.


No that is a very dangerous situation. What is sounds like is you had a short that blew apart but not completely damaging the wires. You should unplug, and open it if its out of warranty and inspect the wires. If the wires are partially burned it can heat up and cause an electrical fire.

Turned on tv no picture only sound then i heard a pop and smelled burning tv turned itself off. 5 min tried turning on tv again nothing happened tv does not turn on at this time


Your RCA TV needs serious troubleshooting. Burning smell is from HV transformer or resistors smoking.

Most likely power supply and/or high voltage circuit or convergence circuit. Many times RCA have multiple or secondary faults that occur with HV or convergence failure.

Repair of RCA HV or convergence usually requires exact manufacturer parts and upgrades or repair in power supply. I would not advise trying this repair without manufacturer support for correct part numbers and service bulletins.

Rpm drops while adling causing 'grinding' sound while white smoke flows from behind or below radiator.


You should replace the cooling fan. With the ac on and no cooling fan, high pressure builds in the condensor and compressor bogging the engine down. When it gets too high a relief valve dumps and you get what appears to be white smoke. It's actually freon, hence the smell. I've replaced several PT cooling fans with the same symptoms.

Magic smoke GONE!
Seriously, the main power supply has failed, and requires service. You are probably well past the warranty period, but check with the TV's service center - that information should be in the documents that came with the TV.
