When I turn on the broiler it smells like plastic burning

check the bottom of the oven to see what's down there and clean it out. Check the broiler coils themselves to make sure they are not coated in something. Things that smell like burning plastic, often are, which is poisonus. Also things that smell like burning plastic often cause spontanious electric fires, which are WAY dangerous. Figure it out before using the broiler again. The life you save could be your own.

Fowl odor in front loader

Clean out the small holes in the gray door gasket (at the bottom) to allow water to drain back into tub. Open access door at bottom left on front of machine, use small hose to drain remaining water from machine, remove and clean out filter there. Re-install. Run washer on the tub clean cycle if you have that cycle, or if not, use the longest, hottest cycle you can, but make sure to use a commercial washer cleaner like Affresh, Washer Magic, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, etc., with no clothes in the washer. After cleaning tub, make sure you only use one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle, and only one teaspoon of fabric softener per cycle if you use softener.

If it smells like plastic burning. Stop using it immediately. As there could be an electrical short or overheating of the unit. If doesn't smell like plastic burning, you'll need to be more descriptive of what the odor smells like.

A rubber spatula was dropped to the bottom during the wash cycle. It melted a small hole in the bottom of the washer, and now it's leaking. Is there a way to patch the hole?

High-temperature silicon glue will probably work ok. Be sure to clean the hole with alcohol and allow 24 hours for the glue to cure. Epoxy would be a better seal, but it doesn't adhere to plastic very well. Hope this helps!

What causes the pungent odor in dishwasher? It seems that the all the water are not being dried

Hi, this is a very common problem and can be sorted out easily, rather than explain it here i include some weblinks that explain it all in detail. plus my favorite below.
http://www.ehow.com/how_2330730_remove-odor-from-dishwasher-.html

http://www.mrscleanusa.com/en/cleaning-tips/kitchen/clean-dishwasher.html


Here is one that takes the smells, hard water stains etc out of your dishwasher and plastic and glass ware. Fill up dishwasher, with plastic glasses, glass ware, dishware. No metal, of any kind! anything you want sparkly and clean.

No detergent! Fill up a small bowl at the Bottom of the dishwasher with vinegar, 1 cup of white. Run the cycle, do not dry. Fill up with 1 cup of bleach, run again. This takes care of all hard water stains, germs that are causing smell etc. Also check for food at the bottom of the dishwasher.
The site below explains WHY you get those smells.

Odor will not go away.............

hi there,

i would let you try putting a small can with charcoal in it inside the dishwasher. However, you cant use it for about 1 weeks' time.

Charcoal absorbs trapped smell.

hope this helps.
