Power brush is not turning after smelling rubber burning.


The belt is broken, ... Eureka Capture Upright Vacuum Vacuum

The brushes spin very, very slowly and stop altogether sometimes - like they just don't have any power behind them.I've cleaned the brushes and also turned it on without the brushes inside to see if the female plug that the brushes go into turns - it does, but not very fast. My husband said he thought he smelled something - like burning. Is there a way to take the underside cover off and clean something?

Brush bar wont turn, Bissell smells like burning rubber


The belt just goes from the motor shaft to the brush roll. Do the ends of the brush trun freely, or is one of them froze up, if so replace the brush roll.

No action Hi: My brush roll won't budge. After we cleaned out all the hoses and replaced a badly worn belt (burned?) when I turn it on the smell of burning rubber and smoke has continued. What hurts is that I don't think I've used the vacuum a total of 10 times ... and I had such high hopes. Ideas?

HI, my motorized brush barely turns.It makes a hot rubber smell. I took apart and noticed the spindle the belt turns on discolored from heat. Cleaned it, but still no turning of the brush.The vac is a hoover wind tunnel. As it moved accidentally touched the belt/ spindle and burned my hand a little. Very hot in area. Bright spark from motor noted. Was careful not to touch that part!


That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need: ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum

Smell/suction I have a Eureka Altima Model 2991 Type AVZ. I have suction when I use the power paw and attachments. I have all hoses clear. My brush is spinning and belt is not broken (I opened it up and checked), but I have no suction when I turn it on to vacuum my living room carpet. I also have a burning smell to go with it after about 30 seconds. I've never had a problem with this vacuum cleaner before.

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.


Better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time ...

My Dirt Devil Vibe bagless vacuum started giving off a burning smell. The brush roller was jammed with hair. I immediately shut it off and cut the hair out of the rollers with scissors until it turned freely. When I turned it back on, the smell was gone but there's no suction now. Did I ruin the belt or something else?

... Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

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

Burning smell how do I get the bottom section apart to clean it out- burning smell when i have the spin brushes turned on. Any help would be appreciated cause I love this machine and hubby told me it couldn't be taken apart to be fixed. Thank you.


The bottom doesn't come apart. you have to remove the top cover to get to any components. But if you have a burning smell, then it is probably ther motor and would have to be replaced. Motors cost anywhere from $70 to $90. ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
