You may want to remove bottom kick plate if you look in there you wil see the main pump housing and to the left is a drain solenid that has a actuator allowing it to move up and down and this is what opens the pump to drain and pump.... alot of times this solenoid will go bad and sometimes literally melt and get stuck causing the odor you are describing and the problems....hope this helps good luck and please vote.....

How do I fix the smell coming out of engine area. everytime it turns on it smells.


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that you are receiving a smell from the engine area of your Frigidaire refrigerator. I would recommend cleaning your drain pan area, you can do that by using water and bleach in a spray bottle then spraying it into the drain pan. Also, get a vacuum attachment to help suck out any debris located in the drain pan. You can also seek consultation with a professional technician for additional assistance if needed. I hope this helps. -Matt

It does not drain at all? and it makes a weird noise and it smells like burning rubber how do i fix it? some one told me that it might be the pump.


If your washer does not drain you need to check this parts.
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch(some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler
Some part of the motor burned out that's why you can smell burning rubber. Check some faulty parts.

My bissel 7901 won't spray water out of the bottom or hose to clean the carpet. I did smell a burning smell and shut it off. Is the pump gone?


Depends, if the the smell was like rubber, then it may be the pump belt. If it is ok, then the pump could be bad, altho the pump wouldn't have had a burning smell. The main motor would if it was an electrical smell.

Burn at bottom of microwave


First try cleaning the burned mark off. Dip a scrubber in lemon juice and sprinkle salt on it; this is also great for burned coffee pots. The smell can be gotten rid of this way: Boil lemon peel in water, then put the water in a spray bottle. Not only will it make your microwave smell fresh but the lemon oil will make it easier to clean. If it still smells of burning rubber, take the back off and inspect the wiring. IF you see burned wiring, please do yourself a favor and replace the microwave!

Microwaves work by making the molecules in food get "excited"-they move more-meaning, if there IS rubber burning, then there will be minute molecules of rubber in your food, which is BAD for your immune system. If it's just burned chocolate, though, it is harmless unless you are allergic.
