Kenmore Elegance Upright Bagged Vacuum Belt Broken and Smelling

\015 I have this vacuum since 2001. It broke 3 belts last 6 months. Now I smell plastic burning during use. What could be wrong? The model number is 116.31800C. I bought from Sears Canada.\015

Answers :

It sounds like the brushroll has caused your belt problem and will be the cause of your burning smell as well. What commonly occurs is that carpet fiber,hair,string, thread,etc got wound around the brushroll and some will get caught in the end caps which is where the bearings are.The end caps need to be removed and cleaned so that the bearings can allow the brush to rotate freely.Check that there is no melting of the end caps or the base plate where the end caps fit into the machine._Good Luck

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

I have a Eureka 4800 series the Boss upright with a bag and Hepa filter. I love it! I was just vacuuming with the hose part and all was well and then suddenly the lower brush came on and a "burning" smell followed. Thought it was the belt so my husband was going to put on the new belt which I had on hand! When he turned it over, the "bar" that holds the belt looks as though it "shot through" the plastic side of the housing on the vacuum. There is melted plastic on the outside of the vacuum and o

I have a kenmore upright 12 amp (M.N. 116.30003402C) vacuum that is not drawing anything up the hoes. There is no obstrution in the hoes and motor, belts, components are working, but there seems to be perhaps something missing(a part) or lost in the macinism that aids in drawing the air required to **** dust/dirt through the hoes and into the bag. Perhaps a diagram of parts and their function would help. Thank you.

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?

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.


It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

The bag has been change. Any one have any ideas how to fix this?
