Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
Stripped gear noise occurs in carpet mode, not bare floor mode
\015 We also smell hot rubber odor when trying use vacuum on carpet. So we immediately turn it off. We checked the belt and it looks find and does not seem to be rubbing or wearing. We also keep the beater bar clean. It runs fine in bar floor mode over tile floors. It has become very difficult to push across our short shag. We do not even try to run it on our long shag. We empty the tank after each use and sometimes in the middle of vacuuming. Since we do have a central vacuum system, we now use it for our carpets, and use the Dyson for the bare floors. But we would rather go back to using the Dyson for the short shags if possible. It is only 2 years old and was easy to run prior to this problem. Please help\015

I've got a Kenmore canister vacuum, Progressive 236123, and there's a burning smell from the belt side of the head--smells a lot like hot rubber. I've cleaned the agitator and changed the belt, but I still get the smell. It's stronger when I'm using "carpet" mode than when I'm using "bare floor" mode. Any ideas what the problem is?

Carpet cleaning brush noise. When put in carpet cleaning mode, a loud noise comes from the brush bar area. We see no visible obstructions and have cleared threads and hair.
