You will need to unplug it. Take a vacuum cleaner and get as much of the dust out as you can. Use a high speed fan, and try blowing it out. Plug it back in, and see if that will remedy the situation. Otherwise you may have to take off the houseing and clean it out. Also, it could have a short that you are not seeing, so check the wiring also.

Sell and light smoke coming from A/C compressor when heater turned on.


I'm not familiar with that code but, the A/C compresser is supposed to come on with the de-frost setting. Sounds like it could be a problem with the heater A/C control panel. As for the burning smell,it could be dust burning off the heater core, or possibly your blower motor trying to go out.

Smoke smells when ac on nissan sentra


The speed control of your fan has resisters that are in the venting system to blow air on them to keep them cool. If they overheat and or burn you will lose your low and medium speeds of the fan. If you run the fan at full see if the smell goes away. Your engine could be burning oil on the outside of the engine block, make sure that the weatherstrip where your hood meets the fresh air intake grill is sealing tight.

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

Sometimes when I turn into my driveway or sharp turns I smell burning oil and smoke comes from my engin but goes away...What could it be?


Check fluids on the power steering. Have someone to watch that area while you turn the wheel. Especially, on the side that you notice the smoke.

Stadt J90 Heater electrical buring smell when unit fires up smell goes away after 5 - 10min for a day or 2 then comes back. Check but no signs of fire or smoke or burnt area. Unit is old but works well...


Hello

Could be your fan blower motor overheating.Normally you wont see any smoke or burning from this motor.

There are sealed bearings in these motors that go bad and cuase a strain on the motor.Also the windings could be clogged with dirt.

Have a look at the motor after you run for a little while.IF the motor is hot to the touch have it replaced.
