Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Smells are usually indicative of the coating on the transformer winding burning. Do you have a meter to test the current draw of the appliance when it is running? I can send you the service manual, if you wish, too. Does it sound like it did when it was heating?
