the dryer works fine but when not in use it makes a 'ticking' sort of noise. also, on occasion i smell burnt electronics, although i'm not sure that's coming from the dryer.

the ticking noise stops when the dryer is unplugged.

thanks in advance!

Hi,

This is a 1986 model dryer.

Where is the ticking noise coming from? The control panel?

If so, then its likely your timer, they no longer make the timer for this model, time to go dryer shopping.
