Question about GE Profile Spectra JBP95 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven light switch shorted out.

After this happened, there was a strong burning smell. We turned off the power to this range. The burning smell resumes each time we turn on power to this range. Took off the back panel and there is a charring around some of the insulation surrounding two electrical connector locations, the two round holds in the middle of the white back panel.

I have a FC10 Yamaha organ and the off and on switch won't switch off. There is a strong burning smell. Can it be fixed


There is a component failure, probably the switch itself, but it may be other parts in that area as well. Do not turn it on again before it's fixed for risk of fire.

My Kennmore 79363 Gas Range/ Electric Oven electrical doesn't work. Started smelling electrical burning smell, tracked to oven. shut off breaker, smell stoped. Few hours later checked again after...


The person who installed the oven didn't do the connections up tight enough.
I would replace the breaker/power switch with a new one and trim back the wires if the burning is in the breaker. If on the rear of the oven, same applies with badly tightened connections.
If in doubt, call a qualified electrician. That will be better than having a fire!

Compaq presario V3019US notebook pc has burning smell


Take out the battery and run just on external power, see if the smell goes away. If it does, check to see if there is a recall on that battery.

Whirlpool 24" built-in GU1200XTLBO dishwasher electrical smell


This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

Rf1101 makita router lost serious power and is sounding wounded


You dont have to take the armature out to look at the commutator, just remove the brushes (unplug tool first) and get a flashlight and look into the brush tube and slowly turn the shaft by hand and look for a discoloration or unusual look on the comm bars. The slight burned smell might have come from the speed control or the switch itself, but look at comm and then go from there. You can get a breakdown for this tool at Makitausa.com. Let me know if you need any more help

Smells like burned


Since power outages aren't always polite and absolute, your fridge may have been subjected to low line voltages for an extended time and gee, Whirlpool still hasn't figured out how to protect their product from this kind of damage. We lost one the same way years ago in CA; we came home after being gone for hours, smelled the fridge, checked the line voltage which was wandering around 25 volts +- ~2 volts. Enough to burn the compressor windings but not enough to start it.
In that case, the electric company paid for the compressor replacement on our two-year-old Whirlpool. If you can dig up anyone who was noting the line voltage, maybe you can file a claim with your utility.

Smeg Oven electric burning smell


My Smeg cooker worked fine for 5 years. Then I noticed that the fan which stays on after you turn off the oven did not ever turn off, unless you switched the oven off at the fuse box. I think this is a fan that cools the oven down, but some bit of it is now broken because it doesn't realise that the oven has cooled down. It smells funny when you first turn it on, so I don't know if that is an electrical fault smell. Model possibly 70cm A420-5, but could be an earlier model (bought in April 2000). Is double oven with 4 rings on top, 70cm wide.

Burning smell , Microwave not turning off


the control circuit shorted out from the cleaning session and kept the microwave on so long with nothing to cook that it has cooked itself I'm sorry to tell you. Probably not worth repairing

Burning smell from Microwave


If you clean any appliances always plug out the unit power supply do spray any liquid in the unit that can enter inside the control, instead just wipe it with rug not spray. In this situation you have to call for a qualified technician. Maybe there are some wires that burned or rust in the control that cause the short circuit inside the unit..
