Burning smell in turn on the heater and out side to 2004 Honda accord LX 4 Door


Can you tell if the smell is coming more from the outside(under the hood), or the inside? I can only guess from the info so far. If the smell is from under the hood turn the heater on recirculate and you won't smell air from outside the car. Not sure where you are from, but here in New England it is time for mice inside the heater boxes.

Tip

Sauna Heater


Oil and Gas Sauna Heaters

Oil and gas heaters are the least popular heaters used in saunas.
One reason is because they're relatively inefficient compared to the others.
Some people even complain about the odor associated with the burning fuel. If they're properly vented, oil and gas heaters should have little or no unpleasant smell

Electric Sauna Heaters

Electric heaters are the most popular used in saunas.
They're easy to control with user friendly touch pads that include a timer and thermostat, and light switch,
They're also efficient and cost just pocket change to operate.
Electric heaters have controls that include a timer, thermostat, and light switch.

Wood Burning Sauna Heaters

If you have a house in the country or easy access to fire wood, a wood burning heater is a great choice for a sauna.
A wood heater may also be a good choice if you have an outdoor sauna.

Heater is not working. No heat coming from it.


if u can smell coolant burning when you try to turn on the heat, it would be the heater core. i would first check the coolant level and change the thermostat. if coolant is full and clean with a new thermostat u have a bad heater core

I have a Honeywell Oil filled heater, HZ 680 series. When both switches are turned on, they light up but there is no heat. Also, a funny smell then the switches automatically turn off. Is there anything...


These heaters last about three years,and are throw aways,unless you have some in the ole shed like I do.Checking the switches is the first thing to do,remove them to see if they are burned up on the other side where the connection is.If they are,that could be the smell,or the thermostat is melted down,and smelling,again,throw away,,or save it,and buy a new one,and you will have parts for when it goes out,if the switches are melted down,a compatible switch,if found,can be replaced in the heater,but something made the switches melt down,most likely a heating element in the tanks,non replacable.

No hot water


Electric water heater can be repaired by homeowner.

Four things can cause NO hot water:
1) ECO red reset button tripped. Remove top cover on water heater, push red reset button on thermostat. Put insulation and cover back over thermostat.
2) Circuit breaker is tripped, circuit breaker bad, or wire loose in breaker box. Turn breaker on-off and listen for crackling or fizzing sound, and burned smell. Test breaker for 220Volts. Test top two screws on upper thermostat to see if water heater has electricity.
3) Bad upper thermostat. Replace upper thermostat.

4) Bad upper element. Test upper element.

Smell of electrical burning.. no more heat in house!


First of all keep this in mind.
You will need to locate the wires that got hot. If you can't or if your not sure, I suggest that you call a service company. If they ok the unit and it catches on fire after wards, their insurances will cover you unit and or home if god forbid it burns. This is to be on the safe side.
Now, this is where I would look. Your element should be on it's on circuit. There should be a disconnect within reach of the air handler. Some are fused and some are not. The wires that got hot enough for you to smell them should show signs of being hot like the plastic will be melted around the wire. You said that the heater was running. Was this the first time you have used it this year? If so, are you sure it was not the dust burning off the elements? They will smell like something burning when you first turn them on each year. Although if your sure you smelled wires getting hot, please continue looking for just that. Keep in mind that the elements have 220 volts coming to them. It comes into the unit and go to a switch or relay. From there the power goes to the elements and then to a neutral. These are the wires you will need to pay the most attention to. Good luck.

Burning smell from oil heater


Pull the controls off the front,and inspect the thermostat connections to see if they are burned up,also the other switches will do the same thing.If you can`t see a problem,then the element is burned out,throw it away and buy a new one.

Electrical burning smell in house


Mhenn, It is my guess that the 'electrical burning' smell is from your heating system. Since there is no smoke and the walls are not warm.... then there is no real problem. The smell maybe just dust has collected in the duct work that is burning off the central heating systems electrical heat strips. If you have electrical heat strips then that may be the problem. If you have a central gas heat system, it may be the same type problem. Hope this helps you. Henry
