Thats the best way of finding out whats causing the smell is run it and watch which componant is smoking you wont hurt nothing that isn't already trashed a transformer or a diode with produce odors a mag usually wont for very long and a capacitor will trip breakers

GE usually has 2-3 screws going into the side of it where the door closes against it .... that side then it will lift up and down
