Tip

FOR QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONS ONLY - Black Smoke


This tip is for qualified service persons only. Others will not understand it.

Ok, we've all experienced when a component releases it's black smoke...
Every component that possesses black smoke will not operate properly once it starts allowing it's black smoke to escape.
If you see a component release it's black smoke while you are repairing it, quickly shut off the unit, gather up all the black smoke, and remove the air from it. Put the black smoke back into the component it came from, and reseal the component so the black smoke can no longer escape.
Make sure you get ALL the black smoke, or the component may still not operate at all, or will operate in a degraded or altered state.
Make sure you hold your breath during the entire procedure.
Any black smoke you breathe in will be irretrievable, and therefore missing from the component once the reinsertion is complete.
If you have any questions about the black smoke reinsertion process, don't hesitate to ask - just don't ask at all, because obviously this tip was meant only to brighten the day of my fellow techs.

Why My Hobart A200 20 QT Mixer ML #104858 Motor Is Smoking?


I think... without knowing that motor... that the capacitor is a start capacitor, and that the start switch may be trying to "start" the motor full-time instead of switching it out of circuit after it figures that the motor has spun up. I may be wrong - that design may be a capacitor-run motor (similar to a three-phase motor) - but I'm betting it's a start-only capacitor.

If you know someone with a capacitance meter, you could check the capacitor - for both capacitance (to be sure it matches the label) and leakage. Easy way to write that one off. Alternatively, you could rig it such that after the motor's wound up you could manually disconnect the capacitor and see what happens - either the motor stops or else the smoking issue stops.

Whatever you do, don't let it smoke very long. The varnish on the windings is only so thick.

Sharp R402JK-T sparking on starting


Unplug the unit and do not plug it back, I can almost picture someone doing this, watching the sparks and smoke and oh the lights dim--Be smart here===either replace it out of hand or take to a repair shop to see if worth fixing or not and do not attempt to turn it on again.

Frigidaire window unit with heat and a/c smoke & burning smells


Hi, Anytime you turn a unit on like this and it smells and smokes, something is wrong. Did it smell as though it was electrical burning? Usually the blower motor is the first motor to go as they collect all of the return air and dust from the air and clog up the windings. They get hot and start to smoke, and you will know due to the smell of electrical wiring. I would turn it back on and see if it starts up and runs. If the motor hesitates in anyway, turn it off, or unplug it.If it is wired directly into a box, find out where the breaker is. If you are in fear of it catching on fire, call a air conditioning company out. I have seen them smoke like crazy but never had one catch on fire, never. I would turn it on, it will trip the breaker if the motor fails. Just watch it closely. If you can pull the front cover off and then turn it on, you may be able to see where the smoking is coming from, a motor ect.
Sincerely,

Self clean mode causes a lot of smoke!


If the oven was really dirty, particularly with grease and unsolid food stuffs, then you will see smoke come out.

The self clean features basically incinerates the food residues in the oven. With incineration comes smoke.

If you feel there is a problem with the electrical circuits, then we would recommend that you call an appliance technician to inspect the unit for any faults.

Reply back what you find.

SMOKE COMING FROM BACK OF FREEZER


Hi jimali1987,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Smoke is coming from lower rear of unit.

Unplug! Remember where there's smoke there's fire. Get access to compressor and find the burnt wire or whatever it was. I have found burnt animal nest in the past. You never know.

Feel free contact me again!

2000 Ford Windstar car stereo smoking


Unless your car is a collectable or very very expensive, in my opinion, I would buy a new unit. The cost of sending the factory one in and just getting them to check it over isn't worth it. You could probably pick one up from ebay or your local scrap yard. Wether you buy another factory unit or an aftermarket unit, is up to you. Good luck.
