Dirt Devil Jaguar Bagless Upright Burning Smell

\015 Good afternoon,\015\012\015\012I have a Dirt Devil 12 amp Jaguar Bagless Upright vacuum cleaner and I have had it for about three years. For about two or three months there has been a persistent and strong burning smell when I run the vacuum. It still works perfectly, it just reeks.\302\240\015\012\015\012Here is what I have done so far since it started:\302\240\015\012\015\012I have replaced the belt. It was a bit worn and I thought that had solved the problem, but alas it did not. I have double checked that the belt is the correct model (belt style 5) and it is on correctly.\302\240\015\012\015\012I have replaced the air filter (style F1). I thought that perhaps as it was getting older it was helping attribute to the smell. Again, not the case.\302\240\015\012\015\012Finally, I have taken the vacuum cleaner completely apart and cleaned out every bit of dust, dirt, hair or what-have-you from each crevice inside and out. Surely, I thought, this would solve the problem. Again, you guessed it, that was not the case.\302\240\015\012\015\012That hideous smell persists. Mechanically everything looked relatively sound when I had it apart. I couldn't see any burn spots or wear on any bit of the vacuum.\302\240\015\012\015\012Any ideas?\302\240\015\012\015

Take the belt off again you will see burnt rubber from the old belt stuck to the motor shaft.you can take a fine piece of emery cloth and clean the shaft down to its polished finish.always good to do this after each belt.check the brush roller and see if there are any signsd of plastic melted.make sure it turns freely if not the brush roller might be siezing uo on youhave you cleaned the hepa filter?does it smell like wires burning or rubber.with it unlugged take it apart to the motor and take a fine iece of emery cloth and go over the motor armature .then try it again.you can take all the filters out and run it without the filters.that will help you narrow it down.please leave feedback

My Dirt Devil Vibe bagless vacuum started giving off a burning smell. The brush roller was jammed with hair.
