    Is there power when you let it set for a while? Is it just a intermittent problem?

    i checked the cord, plug and actually openned up the body to see if anything is out of the ordinary. the wiring seems fine and there's no burning smell. maybe, i'm thinking the swicht is defective?

My 2001 grand marquis heater turns on but wont blow i smelled a strange smell before it quit

Could have been the resistor or the blower motor. It was probably a burning wire smell.
Check the blower motor for power and ground.

I have a makita 18v impact driver that is 4 months old. I dropped it off of a 6 foot ladder today, and it stopped working. The light turns on when i pull the trigger, but a foul smell of burnt plastic

You may have damaged the brush holder, broken some tabs off that hold the field in place or knocked the armature out of alignment. All of these parts work under very close tolerances and if out of alignment will lock the motor up. If you pull the trigger the light will be able to work but since the armature can't turn, heat will build up in the motor very fast and you'll get the burning smell. You may get away with replacing the brush holder or housing but if the burning smell is actually coming from the armature, you'll have to replace that.

My JCB 18V cordless drill is not working when you press the trigger. The battery is fully charged any ideas please.

It's probably the switch; mine judders and works kind of. Slight burning smell coming from it, dismantled it to discover that the switch has started to burn out, so far no luck finding a replacement.........

JCB are totally useless, no help from their support phone number!

Stop working, burned fuse

although unfamilliar with your particular induction cooktop.If you have a fuse thats gone bad, adn you replace adnthat fuse goes bad upon powering up, it sure sound s as if you have a dead short somewhere under there triggering it to blow. no wires touching any metal (fallen off terminals perhaps??))if not id start diconnecting power line leading to individual switches, perhaps a short within the switch if shorting out unit.
