    Burning smell coming from ac vents

    Started smelling a burnt smell coming from my ac vents today. Cold air is still coming out but now there is an odor. Any ideas?
    Already checked the filter and its ok. It was replaced 3 weeks ago and are changed on a monthly basis. It's not coming from the closet where the unit is, just from the vents.

    Is this the first time you fired up the A/C in a while? Tends to happen to me after an absence and it goes away. If it is blowing cold I think you are ok. $#@!, I dunno.

    I'm having a similar problem with my AC but it more smells like moldy water. I cleaned out the return vents and sprayed some deodorizer down there and it went away. Check your return vents.

    Checked the return vents and did a little google research. I think its the motor windings on the blower motor going out. Took the panel off the unit and could smell the odor. $100 part and hopefully I can replace it myself to save some labor $$$.
