Hello, Most likely the burnt rubber smell is that of the dryer belt trying to spin the dryer or the rubber rollers themselves on the tub of the dryer. These are the only rubber parts in a dryer and most of the time it is due to the belt needing to be replaced and having a worn area on the belt itself which then sometimes manages to become stuck on either the pulley or the pulley that is on the motor itself causing it to start to burn into the rubber. You would need to take apart the cabinet of the dryer and observe the dryer belt and if needed replace the belt on the unit. If you are in need of a diagram or step by step instructions please message me back your complete model number and I will locate your diagram and provide instructions on how to repair this issue your unit is having. I await your reply if you have any further questions as well.
Thank you,
Rick

SOURCE: My dryer is giving off a strong odor.

A few things could be going on here. If you are hearing metal on metal sound I would start with the blower wheel itself. Sounds like it either came loose from the motor shaft or it's broke. Other things could be a bad drum roller that has frozen up causing the rubber smell. Your idler pulley could be frozen up and the belt is slipping on the drum. Go to this link http://www3.sears.com/ and post your model number to get a breakdown of your dryer. It wil show the areas I mentioned. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool Duet dryer has a strong. "Burnt"

Hi

The burnt smell usually comes when the motor is going bad, as the unit works I won't recommend you to use it for a long time and get the motor checked-replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Old frigidaire wall oven model RBE-94N emitting strong odor & not baking


Hello - From what you have described it sounds like the unit has faulty elements or could possibly be experiencing a wiring issue with the EOC. Try resetting the oven by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose the unit.
