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

I've got a Kenmore canister vacuum, Progressive 236123, and there's a burning smell from the belt side of the head--smells a lot like hot rubber. I've cleaned the agitator and changed the belt, but I still get the smell. It's stronger when I'm using "carpet" mode than when I'm using "bare floor" mode. Any ideas what the problem is?

Kirby Sentria Hi, I have a new Sentria & used it for the first time today. It was going fine & then I could smell smoke & it started to make a loud noise so I turned it off quickly.

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear and no blockages. Is it the belt I don't think it is. or motor ? Grateful for any advice.


It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.Jim ... Vacuums

I have owned my kirby sentria for 2.5 years and have had no problems until now.

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?
