Having problems with your Bissell 37603 Upright Vacuum ?

Eureka Vacuum is smoking!

\015 My vacuum was not sucking with much force a couple days ago so I checked the roller for hair. Yes it was full of my hair and cat hair. So I cleaned it all out and wala great suction! But within 10 minutes of vacuuming it began smoking quite heavily and smelled awful. I took it outside to cool off. I heard it could be the belt so I picked one up at the local vacuum store, took it home, opened it up and discovered a broken belt and installed the new one. Start vacuuming and within a couple minutes it starts to smell awful again! Now I am affraid to use it. What should I do? I have had it for 5 years and it was not that expensive to begin with, should I just get a new one for $60 at Home Depot?\015

I have a Eureka Power Plus vacuum, model 4702, type A. To start off, it never really had great suction. Marginal at best. Then today I was vacuuming and smelled something burning and turned off the vacuum. At that point, smoke started pouring out from the bottom of the vacuum so I layed it on it's side and the smoke cleared but I never found the source. Is it safe to turn on again after I let it cool down or is my vacuum "shot?"

Smoking belt Hey I have a Eureka 2961 avz bagless vacuum, and if it's on for a few minutes i can smell the belt burning.  If the vacuum is left on any longer the belt starts smoking.  I took the case off and there was a little debris but not much.  Is there a cause and fix or just time to replace the belt?

My model 4870 Eureka type K Vacuum Cleaner won't turn back on after it started smoking. I turned it off, checked the belt and filters, and they seemed to be fine. The brush will turn so I don't think the motor is seized up. where do I go from here? Thanks for you help, David Andrews

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not suction at all. I have tried cleaning and unclogging the filter and everything. It's bagless so I don't need a new bag.

I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum?

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was obstructing the hoses or the spinning brush part. It turned on for 1 second, smells like smoke somewhere from the bottom and now won't turn back on so I don't know if anything is spinning or not. What can I do to fix this myself?
