I have a Hoover SteamVac LS (several years old). I turned it on today and heard slight pop and then an off smell, not a burning smell though. Then after a few more minutes of operation, the SteamVac lost power and now it will not work.

I sucked up a sock and there was a burning smell. I immediately turned off the power, the sock was wrapped around the roller, got it off and let the vacuum cool. Now it no longer powers on. Is it dead or fixable?? Ann Marie Smith

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.

I have a Eureka Power Plus vacuum, model 4702, type A. To start off, it never really had great suction. Marginal at best. Then today I was vacuuming and smelled something burning and turned off the vacuum. At that point, smoke started pouring out from the bottom of the vacuum so I layed it on it's side and the smoke cleared but I never found the source. Is it safe to turn on again after I let it cool down or is my vacuum "shot?"

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.
