I have a Kenmore Oasis Elite 110.280442700. I bought it at the beggining of 2008, never has given me any problem. About a month ago, it started to make a really loud noise during a spinning cycle, as if it...

April, You say you are suspicious that the smoke could have originated from the motor, BUT have you confirmed it? Have you tried running a short cycle without a load to see if the spin cycle rattles the machine or whether the machine works? Watch for smoke and turn off the machine immediately if you see or smell burning. If the motor is burnt, I think replacing should not be an option but rather replacing the machine should be considered.

No fuel on my outboard motor

Empty out the old gas and refill with new gas, check for broken or cracked fuel hose(s),also change the fuel filter, put in Seafoam Motor Treatment into the gas tank and let it sit to clean the deposits in the fuel system then after its started let is burn all the gas and Seafoam thats in the tank, ( follow directions on the Seafoam bottle ) you will likely see lots of thick white smoke, but its nothing to worry about, its just cleaning the deposits by burning the deposits, once you see little or no smoke its good to drive that boat again, while working on that boat, it would not hurt to have clean, air filter and new spark plugs to help keep the motor running smoothly and keep it running good.

After changing thermosat car is now smoking a lillte from the driver side radiator area

Smoking where.? tail pipe end.?
over heats, when, moving at 60mph
or only stopped.?
if that smoke is during a hot running motor, and is steam
the head gasket blew (or worse)
oil smoke burnt lingers a long time, steam goes away fast like tea pot.
smoke smells like burned oil, steam smells disgusting sweet due to
the coolant is 1/2 Glycol.
over heating has many reasons.
only stopped?, bad rad, bad pump, bad stat, bad fan clutch.(or elect fan)
fails to over heat moving, usually is bad fan (action)
steam at tail is coolant burning.

How do i change the fuel filter?

First off check the fuel Injectors fuel filter and air filter as for the white smoke sounds like you're burning oil if you ran out of gas the sediment at the bottom of the tank goes in to you're fuel system

I have a DeWalt D55168 type 3 air compressor that the motor brushes keep sparking and smoking.

If the compressor is relatively new and performs well, it is probably not an issue. Brushes always spark on the commutator but without seeing the extent of the sparks it is hard to tell for certain if it is "too much" or not. I wouldn't expect any significant smoke from the brushes and commutator or the armature unless it is brand new and the oils from manufacturing are being burned off. If it is a very old machine, it is possible the armature is shorted out and needs to be replaced.

If, on the other hand, it is not brand new, but a couple years old, has had use, but not heavy and continuous and you just see small sparks coming from the brushes, then it is probably ok. If the sparks seem larger than what you are accustomed to and you are seeing smoke coming from the motor at all (presuming it is not the brand new situation noted above) then the armature may be starting to short out and/or the windings in the motor may be starting to burn out. Electric motors that are used within their design constraints (not overloaded, not run on low voltage, not run continuously if not designed for that use, not overheated) do not tend to burn out. However, if the windings get covered with sawdust (which insulates them), you run the compressor continuously for hours on end, day after day, especially in a hot environment and/or with low voltage, then you have probably overheated the windings and the motor is burning out. For a compressor of this size and quality, it would likely cost more to have the motor rewound than it cost to replace the compressor. Also, if it has failed from overly hard use, rewinding the motor will not prevent another burn-out, you need a larger, more durable compressor.

Smokes really bad at the beginning, but after you drive the car for 15 min or so it almost stops. What could that be?

Hi :) What is happening? you say Well when you shut the engine down the oil is hot and it runs by the valve stems because the stem guides are warren out and sits on the piston till you start the engine next time. It take a bit to burn it off then it burns clean till the next time you stop running the engine for any lenght of time.Take it in to the shop and have new valve guides put in it or unbrella seals put on under the valve spring this will stop the oil from leaking past the valve stems. I put a cup of transmission oil/Fluid/Dexron2/3 every time i change my oil to keep my valve seals soft and rubbery and it helps

While starting my vaccum cleaner big noise and stream is coming . it is dead?

No Brand? I think you mean big noise and smoke? Smoke can be from a burning belt or dying motor. If it smells like burning rubber you likely have something jamming the brush roll. Otherwise suspect the bang came from a motor fan. Do not attempt to run. disassemble and inspect

Furnace/air cond. blower motor is smoking

I recently installed a horizontal gas furnace. All the electrical and gas supply was done correctly for sure, but upon the trial run, some smoke was coming out the supply lines into the house. I used some flex duct tape to seal all ductwork for air leaks. I also used some inside the first box coming off the heat exchangers to seal the inside of the box for leaks. Could the tape be burning because its to close to the heat exchangers and smoking or is it because its because its brand new and the heat exchanges have to burn a while? Please help

Burning smell and smoke from motor

Sounds like the transmission is jammed.  This will cause the motor to bog and burn.
