Answers :

Had a burning smell coming from the vacuum. Opened it up and noticed sparks in the motor area. Ordered a new motor from Sears and replaced it. Works great now.
Any reputable vacuum cleaner repair shop can check it for you. It will have to be a multi brand shop, nit a Kirby, or Electrolux thpe. They are dealers and only repair their own brand.

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?

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.

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

My Kenmore Handi-Mate Jr., Model # 116.36622501 generates a burning smell once i turn it on. It is out of warranty. There is any way i can look at the vacuum myself and figure out what is broken/burned and understand if it is worth fixing it? It vacuumed very nicely for about 2 years and it wasn't a cheap vacuum. Thank you very very much.
