Check to see if the bushing on the roller brush has seized up. The plastic housing can get hot and melt. Could be caused by hair and dirt preventing the bushing from turning, or if the brush is jammed out of proper position. If the bushing has melted, the part number for a new roller brush is #EU62228-3.

We bought a new home in march. It is a brand new home, with brand new First Alarm smoke/CO detectors. The very first night, we noticed the iving room (main) smoke alarm was "chirping". So we tried to replace the batteries, but when we did, all of the smoke alarms started going off (they are hardwired). We took out the new battery & dealt with the chirp.

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off.
