GE Smart water table top cooler hot smell

On morning a flash of night came from my GE smart water table top cooler. I unplugged it because it smelled hot. I also took the back off of the water cooler to see if I could see anything. I noticed that a black wire with connector seems to be burn off. Can this be fixed? Can I still use it if I shut the red hot water switch off on the back? Can it still be used?

SOURCE: Burning smell from Microwave

If you clean any appliances always plug out the unit power supply do spray any liquid in the unit that can enter inside the control, instead just wipe it with rug not spray. In this situation you have to call for a qualified technician. Maybe there are some wires that burned or rust in the control that cause the short circuit inside the unit..

I am not the Dryer fixin' trade...but I have this dryer. To me, it sounds like it overheating or the heater unit has become lose from its hold rack. I would MOST definitely have a pro look at it and do NOT leave the dryer unattended...It may be a possible fire hazzard

SOURCE: burning odor, no heat

A burning smell along with a different sound (growl) USUALLY indicates a breakdown in the High Voltage Side. This is not a direct short (short circuit) or the line fuse would have blown shutting everything down. The High Voltage Side is made up of-- The Secondary ,or High Voltage Side of The High Voltage Transformer, A High Voltage Diode, A High Voltage Capacitor, and The Magnetron. If The High Voltage Transformer is the problem it will smell like a florescent light ballast burning, and will smell each time you turn on the MW. A HV Diode burns and opens, thus no more smell. A HV Capacitor usually does not burn nor does the Magnetron. There is no Cheap-Fix unless you can see that the HV Diode is burned into and you can get to it to replace. CAUTION: Always unplug from power before attempting to repair. NOTE: If you replace a Diode make sure it goes back in the same direction it came out. Yes there is a front and back.

Just bought wine cooler on line from Costco, December 1, 2014 and delivered December 4, 2014, uncrated and plugged in December 5, 2014.....unit motor runs hot as can be and top of cooler hot to touch.


Compressors run hot and are cooled by the cold gas returning to motor via suction line. If top of unit is hot it is because your condenser, (part that gets rid of heat collected from inside) is up there doing its thing. If it draws excessive current the built in clixon will shut down juice to motor. The smell is just the paint and after a while it will disappear.

Weird taste and smell in water from cooler


The best way to clean it is to run pipe cleaners through the tubes followed by a baking soda solution. If you have an empty cooler bottle put a gallon of hot water into it and three tablespoons of baking soda. Install it and run all of the water through the cooler and also through the hot side. This will make it clean and sweet smelling once again.

I have a 4 years old GE top loading washer - model number 2090D... it was fine till last night that it stop at the last ''drain and spin'' cycle... and I smell a burn smell too when I notice the washer...


  It may be possiblr by the way you explained the symptoms, that the tomer may have shorted out .That would be the most likely problem of the burning smell,and the case of no water entering the tub .

The clothes smell if left in the washer wet overnight


Wet clothes should not be left in the washer over night as mold will develop and cause a moldy odor. You could run the load through a rinse cycle with fabric softener or baking soda to get rid of the odors.
