Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hoover Max Extract Dual V has a burning smell, what could this be?

\015 Using a relatively new (about 9 months old) Hoover Max Extract Dual V when I started smelling a burning smell. Turned off the machine, made sure everything was correctly hooked up, tank full of clean water and detergent, dirty tank was not even 1/4 full. Turned off the machine and cleaned it thoroughly, left it off overnight to let the engine cool. Tried again the next morning and noticed the smell again, very strong, within 10 minutes of using it. Any idea what this could be?\015

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.

My numatic Hoover is brilliant but it smells what part needs changing? It's not a burning smell, but a musky almost cabbage smell?


It could be the sponge filters or the dust partition that need replacing. But it might also be coming from the motor, best bet is to get it checked out. ... Numatic Henry Bagged Canister Vacuum

I was using my Henry Hoover as usual. When i sucked up quite a fair sized puddle of water. The hoover instantly cut out and a strange burning smell was coming from it. Would this be the fuse, motor etc ? Or would it be worth my while just replacing the entire hoover ?


Hi. I have to wonder why anyone would **** up a puddle of water with a dry vacuum cleaner (with no earth lead). I realise that your question may simply be a joke, but if you are serious, I think it is probably fair to assume that it is now dead and p ... Vacuums

I have a Hoover SteamVac LS (several years old). I turned it on today and heard slight pop and then an off smell, not a burning smell though. Then after a few more minutes of operation, the SteamVac lost power and now it will not work.


You should check the cord for any burnt marks or cuts, especially the plug, if you don't see any thing it is probably a bad motor. ... Hoover Vacuums

Was hoovering when my DC04 made a funny high pitched noise then a whirring noise, this was accompanied by a smell of burning and a puff of smoke! Almost sounds like it might be a clutch slipping, is this possible or is it more likely to be a motor burn out?


OK... the DC04 doesn't have a clutch. My best guess is that the belt that drives the brush roll has broken. The smell of burning and smoke puff were probably caused by the motor suddenly speeding up when freed of its burden of driving the brush roll. ... Vacuums
