Some plasticizer out-gassing is normal in new electronics. I personally would want to make sure there is plenty of ventilation in the room for the first couple of days, especially while the set is running. A burned plastic odor or visible smoke is cause for concern; if this happens unplug the set immediately and make a warranty claim.

Seal deal w/ ours. I took it apart and the power supply board had the burn marks on it. Just ordered another power supply board (pn: 272217100571) for ~ $100. TV back panel comes off fairly easily to get at boards.

My new hunter fan feels hot when its on high and smells funny but its only been used just this once since i installed it a couple of days ago is this normal


Yes. The outer paint on your fan motor gets heated up first time and when new it does give off some kind of smell. But after a few hours of use the smell should disappear. Smell can come from the winding also.

Plasma TV smell?


i had the same prob and thought it would burn off. It didn't after a month. Read the comments and tried the plug direct into wall socket plus i washed off the tv surface several times. Now no smell. Not sure which action cured the problem but i'm now happy. It was so bad i had to leave a window open and at times i would gag from the smell.

try tapping lightly on the tub that matches your color problem.
do you see it come and go? if so then you have bad tubes.
you can try to rejuvenate them but is not recomended.
