I have a frigidare dryer 5-6 years old. Recently, started smelling like something electrical is burning. If I hold down the start button the motor will turn the drum slowly and the burning smell returns....


Check for vent blockages! Overheating may be a serious issue and fire hazzard. A slow moving drum could mean a bad traction belt, jammed mechanical part or the motor is not spinning at a proper RPM which may indicate motor damage also. The electrical burning is a serious issue also and a fire hazzard. Dryers need periodical cleaning to remove excess lint, dust and debris. Lack of cleaning causes the dryer to work harder and run hotter. Excessive heat shortens the life of many parts such as belts, bearings, electronics, wiring, etc...

Hi my 3/4 hp 230/115 centurian is buzzing and i smell burnt electrics.....what do i need to order to fix?


If the motor can be turned easily by hand then sometimes the starting or run capacitor can be replaced with the same value device and the pump will run. If a new capacitor is installed and it doesn't run then the motor needs to be replaced. If the motor does not turn easily then usually the bearings are bad and the motor needs to be replaced. I hope this helps. The burned smell is either overheated wiring in the motor or a bad capacitor, etc.

In my 2004 ford focus I turn my fan on and it runs for a little bit, then stops. About a minute later I smell burning. I turn the dial to 0 and the smell goes away.


Your blower motor is bad and overheating. You need to replace it. What you are smelling is the resin on the windings of the motor.

Smoke coming through vents temp. gauge going up acting like its going 2 overheat turn heater on hot and smokes bad turn to cool and smokes a little my husband thinks it's the thermostat and wants to...


If the heater core is leaking, you would get a lot of steam that would smell "sweet". That would also leave you low on coolant, which could be a source of your overheating. If it's more of an electrical smell, you may have a blower motor or a blower motor resistor going bad, but won't cause the engine to overheat.

Stadt J90 Heater electrical buring smell when unit fires up smell goes away after 5 - 10min for a day or 2 then comes back. Check but no signs of fire or smoke or burnt area. Unit is old but works well...


Hello

Could be your fan blower motor overheating.Normally you wont see any smoke or burning from this motor.

There are sealed bearings in these motors that go bad and cuase a strain on the motor.Also the windings could be clogged with dirt.

Have a look at the motor after you run for a little while.IF the motor is hot to the touch have it replaced.

Overheating/burnt rubber smell


classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

Wont start up.


Sounds like the motor is failing. The main cause of failure is overheating due to clooged venting. Is the dryer taking more than 60 mins to dry?? If so then the vent is clogged. Its likely too that the motor is covered with lint and not being able to properly dissipate its own heat, you could clean it and see if it helps but usually once they are shutting down overheated (the burning smell is the motors' internal windings being very hot) they need replacement.
