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

Bissell PowerForce Turbo: The motor spindle becomes very hot while spinning, causing the new belt to burn and break. Is this because the motor is overheating?


Something is preventing the brush roller from turning even though it seeems to be OK when not in contact with the floor. The motor shaft is spinning on one spot of the belt, causing the heating, the smell, and eventual belt failure. I have had brush ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

Hoover Model U8185-900 beater bar part keeps smoking and burning up We've replaced the part Hoover PCB Display Bridge U8172 three times and the vac beater bar works for about a minute then the part starts to smoke and burns out again. I've taken everything apart but cannot locate anything that would cause this part to burn up. I think if I did not disconnet immediately, he vac would catch my rug on fire. Help? I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest


I'm not sure why this is happening. Perhaps if you would contact Hoover and explain the problem to them such that it appears that there is a safety issue with their product, they might be more cooperative. If that fails, I have had luck writing let ... Hoover U8185-900 Upright Vacuum

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.

Oreck model BB870-AS - I was vaccuming when the vac shut off. The motor just spooled down and nothing more since. I have opened the case.

We own a dirt devil model 088600, and are experiencing a problem with the belt wearing away a section between where the belt connects to the brushes and the motor. There is a lot of plastic/rubber residue coming out from the vacuum. We have tried new belts only to find the same problem occurs. I noticed that the source of the dust is coming from the section between the brushes and motor, where there appears to be a section that is misshapen and melted.
