When my 58 inch Samsung plasma is on , there is a definite smell of burnt rubber, just like when your vacuum belt is burning. I have owned this TV for less than a year, it didn't start right away but is now very obnoxious. How can I fix this?

Hi,

To start with, as you must be aware this is an internal failure. As it is less than a year old, it is in warranty. You have an option to call up LG and get it repaired or replaced. The reasons for calling LG are :-

1. Repair could be expensive ( unfortunately, most of these expensive products have assemblies that usually needs replacement than repair ).

2. You need to have electronics experience, should know how to read schematics and need to keep all the precautions.

3. Any DIY would VOID warranty on the product.

To provide you with some pointer, a burning smell of burnt rubber means a short circuit that might have burnt the board or the internal wires which needs to be carefully observed.

Let me know,if you wanted to fix it yourself. As we discuss, it would need you to use multimeter and other electrical devices and you need to open the TV for the same.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Burning smell Kenmore 50558


If the burning smell is an electrical smell it could be motor or wiring problems which are best handled by a professional. If it smells like burning rubber it is probably the belt. If it smells like burnt wood it could be the belt slipping on the brush roll, if the brush roll is made of wood. Dust and debris can also accumulate behind the end caps of the brush roll causing friction which can cause a burning wood smell.

Burnt rubber smell when vacuuming


This could be a few things:

A. If your model has a floor selector switch (Bare floor/tools - Carpet) your clutch could be worn. (there is a rubber clutch pad between your cam and roller shell) - Fix would be to replace the clutch pad and belt.

B. If you don't have one of the above models, your belt could be stretched. The belt slipping could cause a rubber burning smell. Fix - Change belt.

C. Have you got any new carpet you are vacuuming or have you moved? Some of the newer style frieze carpets can cause burning rubber smell. The fibers of the carpet are longer and cause the brush to slow down causing the belt to burn. (Imagine brushing long hair with a thick brush, the hair easily gets tangled in the brush, same effect with this carpet.) Some of the newer rugs can do this as well. Some newer carpets with the thicker felt backing and/or the "pet padding" under the carpet can too. it doesn't allow enough air to flow through causing the cleaner head to seal itself to the carpet causing a burning smell. The fix is Move to another home, replace your carpets or replace your vacuum. The vacuum is the cheaper option but be cautious as most vacuums now do this with these carpets. We have had really good response from customers using the Simplicity Tandem Air models, (Synchrony and Synergy models.)

Hope this helps, if you need to talk further feel free to contact me.

When operating smells like burnt rubber. Roller brush stopped turning.


Hi leanneaj...
Your problem is caused by hair,strings,etc getting around the beater bar at the ends of the roller where the bearings are and causes it to sease up.
The smell you smelled was rubber burning, the rubber belt that operates the roller brush has burned into...broken.
You will have to remove your roller brush and clean, and oil and then reinstall it with a new belt

My dyson dc07 has started to smell a bit of burning.


This will be 1 of 2 problems.

1. If its a burnt rubber smell then its the belt that has gone and will need to be replaced.
2. If its a metalic smell then your motor is burnt out.


Replacing the belt is easy enough, the motor is a lot more complicated and should be left for an expert.

I replaced the belt as I have done before on Self-Propelled Vision. When turned on it is very loud and left on too long will smoke and you can smell the belt deteriorating. I do not feel this is a belt...


The best way to check if the motor is burning or not is to go back into the unit and take the belt off of the motor shaft. If the unit does the same thing and burns or even if the lights flicker when the unit is on, then it is definitely the motor.

Usually the burning smell associated with this is like a burnt match or burnt wood.

good luck.

Eureka 2961 BVZ no suction, burning smell


I have the same vacuum. The burning smell is letting you know that your belt is either broken or about to break. I have had mine for a year and have had to replace the belt 5 times. Now I have to replace the brush roller 'cause it broke under normal use. My next vacuum will be a Dyson Ball.

Your belt is worn and that is why there is a burnt rubber smell. You need to change your belt. You can find a replacement belt and instructions here:

Vacuum smells like burning rubber when on, no suction, leaving black marks on carpet


Usually when my vacuum smells like burning rubber, the belt needs to be changed and that is very easy to do. You just need to remove the the screws that hold in the rotator and put in a new belt. When the belt needs to be changed the vacuum will not pick up anything and this could make it seem like there is no suction. I hope this helps!
