Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced

There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

Dead motor? My 8 year old Miele S251i has worked fine, until I was recently vacuuming and moved the plug from one outlet to another. When I restarted the vacuum, it made rrrrr.....rrrrrr....rrrrr noises and smelled like something was burning. I turned it off, and it's shown no signs of life since. Sound like a motor problem? I've taken the cover off and looked at the cord and seen the motor, nothing looks obviously wrong, but I'm also not mechanical.

My Bissell Pro Heat Pet will spray water but not pick it up when cleaning the carpet. Is there anything I can do to fix it? The furniture attachment hose picks up water well. It seems like it could be a bit more powerful of a draw on water. I don't know it that has something to do with why the floor cleaning sucktion doesn't work. Thank you for your time. Jenn

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It has a metal handle.) Now I am afraid to use it.

Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know i ... Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

It sounds as if you have a clog inside the "Power Nozzel". They mention that there are "no user serviceable parts within the Majestic® Power Nozzle" My advice would be to see if you can see a clog with in reachable distance and try to remove the ... Filter Queen Vacuums

I have a dyson dc21. All the sudden the hose is hardly suctioning up anything. If I take the canaster off, the top air hole suctions extrememly well, but when I place that canister back on, the suction is not going thru the hose and picking anything up. I have squeezed the hose, I feel no air leaking and do not feel any blockages...what could be wrong. It worked fine the other day and today, it won't pick up a piece of lint!

Stopped working Was working fine then it smelled like burning rubber, not the belt I checked. It sounds like the motor wants to run then it just stopped but the light is on. What do you think, go by a new one?? This has been a great vacuum cleaner and I can not seem to find a Sharp anywere. Thanks for your time.

Well it could be the motor, if it is it would cost around $80 or so for a motor. May be better to buy new, thre are a number of good brands out there. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

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 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?

Burning smell When starting up, sounds like it's working, but something's burning. How do I track it down?

Hi. What does the burning smell of? Is it 'rubbery', or is it acrid and 'chemically'?! The most common item to 'burn' is the belt which drives the rotating brush at the front. Does your cleaner have a belt? This would give a burning rubber smell.\0 ... Eureka 2996AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have the Kenmore Model 116.36722600 Vacuum; while cleaning the carpets the vacuum all of the sudden stop working; I didn't smell anything burning; it was almost like someone unplugged it. I checked the rollers and I can move it forward and backwards with no problem. Do you think the motor just burned out? Does this vacuum have a fuse that I can reuse? I love this vacuum and would hate to toss it. thank you

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. If I turn it on it immediately starts making the noise again & I can see it is all lit up inside like something is burning or sparking. I have checked the roller & it is moving & I have checked the fan which is moving & doesn't appear to be damaged in anyway. This product is from the US & we are in the UK & we are us

Sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz. usually when a vac is brought to eu ... Kirby Vacuums

Vacuflo 260. All of a sudden not working. Something smells like it's burning. As opposed to the motor...could it be a faulty switch (how's that for optomism?)?

If it is an electrical smell, then it is probably the motor, a switch is possible tho. If it is a rubber smell, then it is the belt slipping, replace it, and check the brush roll, the ends should turn easily. ... Vacuums

I would check if the drive belt has a scorch mark on it, you may have caught something that temporarilly jammed the belt causing it to slip hence burning smell. I wouldn't suspect motor or anything serious as it works. So if need be change the belt. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a Bissell pet hair eraser model #3920. It's been working great until last night. I went to use it and the brush won't spin. It also smells like it's burning. I checked the belt and it looks fine, and the brush spins by hand easily. It's not clogged anywhere that I can see. Anyone have any other ideas? This vacuum is only 8 months old.

- Remove the access panel, which is on the bottom of the machine. There are 4 tabs to lift on the access panel to remove. Start with tab 1 then 2-4 tabs.- Check the brush, and belt for any damage. Clean off any debris on the brush. ... Bissell 3920 Bagless Upright Vacuum

I smelled something like rubber abd now it won't pick up anything.

In all probabilty, your beater bar brush was jammed and the belt that drives it was stuck while the motor that drives it was spinning. This problem will manifest otself as a burnt drive belt. If you can open up the base part ( where the beater bar is ... Bissell Vacuums

My vacuum makes a really loud noise when I turn it on. It was working and now it smells like something is burning. I check the belt- it looks ok.

The belt may look okay but it still can be stretched or worn and can be slipping on the motor shaft and thats why you have the burning smell. I would try changing the belt.

I have owned my kirby sentria for 2.5 years and have had no problems until now. The vacuum still works but I cannot lower it all the way down or the light will turn off and it will start to smell like something is burning inside. I use it on the 2nd or 3rd setting with no problem. I have changed the belt and cleaned all the hair and strings that were on the roller but it still has this problem.

Vacuum will not **** up dirt from the floor. The hose works fine. There is also a burning rubber smell when I use it.

This sounds like your roller has stopped causing the belt (s) to burn. The problem is definitely in the foot of the vac. You will need to take the bottom plate off to investigate further. ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have an older Oreck XL that has worked great. The belt recently broke and I reinstalled a new one but now there's a rattling noise like something is loose and a burning smell. I've cleaned it as well as I could but still nothing. Help please!

When you turn it on, is the brush roll spinning? (Check carefully, as lifting the unit from the floor exposes a brushroll that should be spinning at a high RPM.)\015\012\015\012Did you get the brush roll properly seated in the slots? Does ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

Burning smell When i start up my vaccuum it gives off a burning smell, it still picks up & operates like it should just leaves the house smelling like ive had a fire. Any advice on how to fix will be greatly appreciated.
