Accutek aoj-1601 stand fan problem

A heavy cloth was left over the fan vent, and I think the motor burned out. It's not working anymore. Can this be fixed, cheaply, or should I just toss this fan and get a new one?

An electric motor shop may be able to rebuild the motor for you, or you may be able to find a motor with the same ratings. Chances are this would be pricier than a new fan though.

Hello My Leisure Rangemaster is smoking like mad from the vents . I've had to turn it of instantly - it stank of " burn" ? Could this be the fan motor by any chance ?

Hello Lisa,

I love these cookers, they are beautiful.


Then pull the cooker out of its place and unscrew the backplate on the side where you think the problem is.
When it really is the ventilator, you will find then some very dark colored wires.
The reason for this is most often a bad contact.
When the wire is not burned to much, remove the burned connection, clean it and put it back again.
In case of a really bad burne wire, do not replace the wire, but use shrink hose
Just be sure that the connection is ok again.

My BaByliss blow dryer smells like burnt when I turn it on and I seen like a spark is it going to work anymore


Answer:First, Stop using your dryer until this problem is resolved. This is a fire hazard and could cause a fire.
Your issue is more than likely alint build up problem. The lint that comes off of your clothes as you dry them becomes trapped in the dryer itself and in the venting duct that connects from the back of the dryer to the wall.
The first thing to do is todisconnect powerby unplugging the dryer cord from the wall. Slide the dryer away from the wall slowly.Remove the hose ductthat attaches to the back of the dryer. Look inside the hose duct and if you see heavy lint build up, that is most likely your problem. If you have a shop vac vacuum or similar, use the long wand attachment tovacuum out the lintthat is in the duct. The best way to do this is to completely remove the vent duct from the wall and dryer.Vacuum the inside of the ductto clean it out. Alsovacuum in the vent hole in the wallwhere the duct attaches to the wall and remove any lint that may be blocking air flow. Put everything back together and test your dryer to see if the burning smell has been resolved.

NOTE: There may be heavy build up of lint deep in the wall. You can purchase aDryer Vent Cleaning Kitthat may make your job of cleaning the vent much easier. However, it may be best to call a Dryer Vent Cleaning Company as they have the equipment that is needed to remove all lint in the wall that could cause a fire. We know everyone wants to save money and "do it yourself" but when it comes to safety, money should not be an issue.
If the burning smell is still present, you cantake the dryer apartandtry vacuuming out any lintthat may be built up on the inside of the dryer. Do a search for your dryer model name and number onGoogleto see how your particular dryer model is disassembled. If you are not comfortable taking your dryer apart then it is advised to call an appliance repair company as your issue can cause a fire.
There are other reasons for your dryer to have a burning smell. There could be an electrical issue inside your dryer. This may mean that a certain part or electrical board is going bad or is bad. Another common reason for this issue is something is near the heating element inside the dryer and causing the burning smell. If you have an older clothes dryer, it may be possible that the components are past its life span and it is time to purchase a new dryer. If you want your dryer to be looked at by a professional, it may be time to call an appliance repair company to come out and check your dryer.
There are plenty of videos that can help you to determine what may be wrong with your dryer. There are a few videos below that may assist you with troubleshooting and disassembling your dryer.
The belt
In some dryers, a belt turns the drum. This belt can slip off, which can cause it to start melting. Because it is usually made of rubber, it will then produce a very strong, unpleasant burning odor. If your drum is not turning smoothly or properly, and you notice a bad burning smell, your belt is probably damaged.
Dryers have motors, and as they age, they can burn out just like any other motor. This causes a very strong burning smell, and your dryer will either not run at all, or it will run poorly and with a lot of noise.

Jilbere Porcelain Series Hair Dryer.the blower doesnt work anymore,it happens when I was drying my hair.The motor smells normal not burned and I already check buttons for reset and no luck.

On the end there shouldbe a vent which houses the fan you should be able to open this by twisting ? Chech to see if there is hair/fluff/dust blocking this if it's not able to move the motor won't have anything to keep it cooled resulting in smelling burning as the caught up hair fluff and dust burn hope this helps :-)

Just had new brushes put in and it only worked for haif a wash and blew and brushes gone its done it 2 times

Is this another DC operated washer? It sounds like the motor is trying to drive a very heavy load (not of clothes) which could mean bad bearings in the transmission (or out of lubrication). It could also be a very cheaply made motor that cannot do it's job. Look for clothes or other debris that are not where they belong that might be hanging up the agitator or tub motion.

GE Microwave JVM1190, fan does not turn and fuse is arcing

If your motor runs freely and normally, I would not worry about the charred or burn smell as that will be there for a while. You can however to lessen that smell is to power everthing off and unplug the ac cord and use isopropyl alcohol with a cleaning brush like they use to clean circuit boards and clean the area thoroughly where the hot spot was. In that way in the future if you have a problem in that same area that persists after your initial fix then you can pin point it to the particular spot if it is a component that for instance drive the motor or is part of that circuitry. However, I do not think you will have anymore problems once you change the belt.
