Motor winding or wiring has shorted to chassis ground. unplug the motor connections and see if fuse still blows. if you have a multi meter use it to find the shorted conductor. there may be a black spot where its insulation has broken down and arced to ground.

If the smoking at the base smells like burned rubber it's probably your belt. If it smells electrical it's probably your motor or an electrical problem.

How do I replace the fuse on a rainbow vaccum?

The D4 model Rainbow has a Thermal Cut Off
This has to be manually replaced. It is attached to the Field 120v D4
If this has blown, then most likely something is causing. The Armature Tall 120v D4 could be going bad.

Hi first thing to check ins that you have 12 volts at the battery, it is unlikely that the burning is coming from the injection ecu, if you have 12 volts in the battery but no ignition lights the chances are the burning you have smelled is an electrical short circuit, which has caused the fuse to blow, in addition to the fuse located in the fuse box, check the starter relay, most models incorp a main fuse here, follow the poss red wire from the battery to locate the relay here the wire will split in to 2, check here for any fuses, secondly if you have no life at all in the battery not even enough to make a glimmer on the ignition light, the burning you have smelled could have come from the regulator rectifier in the bikes charging system check the rear of this unit for any burning to the silicone sealent, a fault with this could have blown a fuse also, it would be difficult to estimate a repaire cost without knowing the fault, try turning the ignition switch to the lock park position and check if rear light iluminates, this uses a separate ignition live, if this lights you would then know if you have suficiant power in the battery, to iluminate the ignition lite aand the fault would not be battery related,

A major short. I wouldn't use the car. Especially if you smelled a burning smell. because your car can catch fire. This is very rare to happen to a car, but take it to an electrical system repair garage.

My stove digital lights are off and it will not light. The gas do work; I can smell it when i turn it on. what should i do

Well first you want to verify that the range is getting power from your electrical outlet. It is possible that the GFCI has tripped causing no power to the outlet. Once you have verified that there is power to the range you will next need to unplug the range and remove the back panel to do a visual inspection. Verify that there are no loose or disconnected wiring. Also look for any melted wiring or parts. Also check for any burned electrical odor. There might be an inline fuse located inside the range usually located on the hot side of the incoming electrical wire. Verify that this fuse is not blown. If the fuse is bad then you could try replacing it but if it blows again then there might be a short somewhere. And make sure you replace the fuse with the same rating that you removed. If the fuse is good then you might have a bad control board.

Ventilation seems to be an issue with this unit, I am thinking of installing a small fan at the back to cool the voltage regulator and main transformer.

Fuse blew on power now stuck in Protection Mode

Sounds like the out put stage of the amp is shorting, They are either 4 large transistors attached to an aluminium plate (heatsink) or one large chip with heatsink. also sounds as the driver stage went too when you switched it on the second time. If you know nothing of electronics I suggest you take it to an audio repair shop, as it is cheaper to repair than replace high power amplifiers.
