Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Wertheim vaccum 3180

\015 The electric head that is used for carpets is not spinning. \302\240the motor works and usually the vacuum pulls you along but it is not moving.\015\012i did smell something burning so not sure what that could have been?\015

Answers :

Most vacuums use a belt that runs from the motor to the front brush. and when the brush gets jammed the motor continues to run and burns the belt (probably what you smelled).
\015\012 you'll have to turn it over and remove the base plate and replace the belt.
\015\012 use the old belt to find a match
\015\012 hope this helps.....jay

Hello, I got a used Kirby Sentria. When I run the vaccum and push and pull on the handle, I can hearing a friction type noise. I got up close to the vaccum and it is not the wheels or roller. It is coming from the base of the handle. It's like it is pushing on something on the vaccum body and is creating the noise. Maybe transmission? Is this normal, or is it something I should be concerned about? Thanks for your help!

When I was using my Bissell ProHeat 7901, I smelled something hot (almost burnt) and turned off the vaccum. When I turned it back on, everything seemed to be working, but the vaccum part was not making the same sound. The bristles are still turning, but it isn't picking up as much and is leaving quite a bit of lint on the carpet. Could the belts be worn? How do I tell? Thanks!
