Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

I have a mile tt2000 that works fine up to 1300W but if I crank it up higher the motor decreases and increases speed every couple of seconds. I have changed the bag and filters and done the usual cheCks for blockages but can find nothing amiss. Unusually when it is running and I block the intake it will run at full power but as soon as I clear it the motor "hunts" again. Any ideas.

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?
Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum
Does not pick up, no vaccum, motor runs, no blockage, should feel suction on hose outlet without hose hook up. Paper filter missing over cloth filter. float overload ball free, seal on section good no leakage. Maybe bad motor but runs.

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together
The motor runs slow (so does not pick up properly) and does not run at all if the hose is pulled out. There doesn't seem to be a blockage and the roller is clean. Could it be as simple as changing the filters?

Have an old upright that does not pickup dirt. The beater bar runs but the suction motor doesn't. Do not know how to disasemble upright.
I don't recommend taking it apart yourself. The problem could be a switch, wiring, or connection. The motor could also be bad. I strongly recommend taking it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for a free diagnosis. Let a trained service tech ... Electrolux EL5010A Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a new bag in, checked the hoses for clogs have the motor cover off showing motor runs. Problem is vacuum has no suction in hose area, cover off where bag is and the air blows out of filter. hoses are clean no blockage.
Have you checked the filter? Many vacuums have a filter under or behind the bag to keep dust and dirt out of the motor. If this gets clogged the motor can't get any suction. Also look for holes in the hose or in the small segment between hose and bag ... Vacuums
