It's possibly a lubrication problem. I can't seem to keep mine lubricated, so good luck with yours.

What wrong my wind machine stop working and had funny smell?


Well,,, if it had a funny smell,,, along with not working anymore, than either a wire burned up or the motor fried. I'd bet on a wire though. If its multi speed, than a capacitor may have fried too but they don't ordinarily smell unless they burn. For the price of a new one,, just go out and buy one instead of wasting money on a repair unless you know someone who can fix a small problem.

Old emerson electric window fan, does it need oil or to be oiled, my dad has had for many years, I've been noticing a burning smell when fan runs for a long period of time


  • First think I think when I hear of a burning smell is have you cleaned out the motor housing real well lately. Lots of fuzz, dust, etc can build up in there and make that motor really work hard and start to make it want to overheat or over heat. Unplug the fan and take a tooth pic and get in the motor assembly and pull the lint etc out of there with it. Some canned air may help a bit to once things are loosened up.
  • As for lubricating the fan you won't oil it. The motor spins the fan so there is nothing to lubricate. When the motor goes the the fan stops so the best thing you can do is strip that fan the best you can and wash and dry the parts real good and clean the motor housing out real well to let that motor breath as much as possible.
  • When a fan motor gets old and is worked real hard it can get hot by default and things will smell hot. If the fan has already been cleaned real well the best thing you can do is give it a break more frequently or look into a replacement motor.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Hello :

You should sniff the motor first . If there's a bad smell , then the motor is burned . You
If you can fix it by yourself , then dissemble the unit, remove the motor. Loosen the bolts running from end to end of the motor and with emery cloth, clean the small metal plates on the ehd of the armature. They should be bright copper color. If the armature is burnt, they will be dull brown. The other thing is to replace the brushes in the motor . Or take it to a repair shop if you are not sure that you can fix it by yourself .

good luck .

please rate !

I have a Ruud Acheiver 90, I'm having some problems, the rollout (burner) limit switches are opening, and there is an electrical burning smell. It seems that sometimes the squirrel cage isn't kicking on,...


Thanks for your question,
yup your fan motor is bad, if you need to manually start it each time then the motor winding are bad and it is not getting the air across the coils, which in turn are over heating, thus causing a burning smell, and then tripping your limits, you need to replace this motor ASAP, before it does cause a fire, if the limits ever fail !! I hope this was helpful for ya, if it was please give this a rating, thanks again,

Heater not working


The problem is probably the blower motor resistor. I'm not sure where yours is located exactly. They can be on the firewall under the hood or some are near the blower motor under the dash.

Has a burning smell


That depends on what's burning! Unplug it and search online for the manual for that thing, or call Bionaire's help line once you look that up.

If you can safely do it, and are unworried about warrantee conditions, open it out and find out what was burning and what caused it to burn; for example, note the scorchy motor and/or control components and remove the cat toy out of the fan blade. At this point you get to observe and perhaps test whether the motor (or transformer, etc.) was burnt to ruin or can still run with care and reassembly.
