Not sucking, smoking

\015 This stupid vacuum is not sucking anything up--i can't find a clog, and now it's smoking too. the burning odor is concerning me a little. any advice?\015

Answers :

Hi\015\012If its smoking the belt needs replaced. Check the top of the hood for two or three crosshead screws; two at the front and one under neath the duster part. The belt may be on its way out. \015\012
\015\012Also if its not sucking anything up, it may well be clogged. Check the drive belt area where the main dust channel is, top and bottom hose too. \015\012
\015\012Also make sure than the filters in the bin/pleated cones are completely clear of dust. If washing make sure the filters are completely dry before putting them back in.

I have a windtunnel 2 vacuum. It sucked up a cord that wrapped around the beater bar. Now the bar won't turn. There was no smoke or sign of something burning. The motor still runs and there is suction but no turning. We have it apart but nothing is obvious. What should I check?

Check the actual beater bar for movement. I have seen the plastic melting, and bearings seized under such circumstances. Also I am unsure by your question, but the motor that creates the vacuum (sucking) is different than the motor that spins your ... Vacuums

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet. It just shut down and wouldn't come back on. 10 minutes or so later it came back on but now it's got no sucking power. I figure I torched the motor. Good guess?

Not sucking We have an Oreck XL and today it is blowing out dust instead of sucking it up. I just replaced the belt and about 6 months ago, we took it to our Oreck dealer and had it rehauled. I opened it up to check all and it all looked fine. Then I tuned on the machine while unzipped and noticed that the bad does not inflate as it used to. What can I do?

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?
