Kenmore vac producing burning odor

\015 Kenmore canister vacuum #27515:\015\012Slight burning odor or "electrical arc-ing" odor when operated. \015\012\015\012Someone at store said that maybe the belt needs to be replaced. But isn't the "belt" only a part of the rotating-brush floor attachment? The odor is coming from the main unit, not that part. Unit is only a year old and hasn't had heavy usage.\015

Answers :

It sounds like you have bad carbon brushes on the motor. Get replacement brushes from a local vac shop, and take the unit apart. On each side of the motor their is a retangular piece of plastic with what looks like magnets in them. In most cases they are simply held by 2 screws. Replace these brushes and reasemble the unit. If the problem persists you have burned out the comutator on the motor and the whole thing must be replaced.

Hi, I have a canister Kenmore vacuum with power head. Everytime I use it, it smells sour. Its strong and like FEET with bad odor.

I recommend that you purchase scented granules that are placed inside of the vacuum bag. Do not buy Carpet Fresh because the fine powd ... Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
