Bosch next 500 plus burning smell in dryer


Sounds like to me, but I'm no expert, the heating element is "over-heating and not getting the m"air" it needs to cool down enough to keep from burning. Literally I mean burn because the way a drier works is there is a fan at the heating element to blow the heat from the element to dry the clothes and if the fan is filled with lint it can't blow much air across the element and causing it to have the burning smell. I would check the fan blades and those are usually connected directly to the drier drive motor. I wouldn't use the drier until issue is resolved for the reason being is you can burn out the element and have to replace it too. Hope this helps you in you quest to the repairs of you drier :o) Jesus loves you John 3:16-17 (KJV)

Lg gas dryer something burning


burning smells in driers can be sometimes from a blocked lint filter. The dried lint has been known to ignite when it gets hot. If you haven't cleaned the lint filter then do so and if the smell continues get it serviced.

The coffe grinder smell burn after usage. Is there a way to clean it.


You should check you manual for directions as to how to take the machine apart to clean it because it needs regular cleaning. Since you have not cleaned it in a while, the beans are probably getting super hot and burning inside the grinder because of friction. Also, this particular machine operates best with a drier (less oily)coffee bean... think Italian expresso beans. These drier beans should work better with this machine.

My drier smells like a animal has died when heated up.


You will have to diss-assemble the dryer to look for the cause. I have run into that problem before, and found that a mouse electricuted himself by contacting the exposed wire terminals on the motor. When the motor warmed up, the dead animal smell was there. There are a lot of areas where a mouse could come in contact with live voltage and end up dead on an area which heats up, like near the heating element.

I can run my drier but after a few minutes it begins to smell of burnt wires


I put my drier all back together and will run it until it quits; that way I will be able to find the problem. I am just ahead of myself. I think now that it is the element burning out and it will eventually burn right out; then I'll replace it.

Thanks.

Burning smell


Sounds like your drier is over loaded. Belt slipping due to : to much weight in drier. The drier motor is an adjustable. Belt test: If you can twist belt more than a half a turn it is to lose. Replace belt.

KENMORE DRYER


the only thing that can burn in a drier is lint most of the time if lints building up in a drier depending on age its because of poor venting if the drier heats but it takes longer than an hour to dry clothes you have a vent restriction but every few years you should take it appart and clean it out now kenmores drums run on rubber wheels and like a car they get flat spots in them so they roar and bump when they first start but should get quiter as you run more loads during the day
