SWEEPER SMELLS LIKE SOMETHING BURNING, BUT WORKS WELL. DOES IT NEED A TUNE-UP AND CAN I DO THIS MYSELF?
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 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
The brushes spin very, very slowly and stop altogether sometimes - like they just don't have any power behind them.I've cleaned the brushes and also turned it on without the brushes inside to see if the female plug that the brushes go into turns - it does, but not very fast. My husband said he thought he smelled something - like burning. Is there a way to take the underside cover off and clean something?

I have a Bissell 9400 E pro heat turbo. It's only been used 4 times, today it sounded like something blew. All my house electrics went off...( blew the main trip) I did read some place that the motor can short out and blow the PCB. Hubby and I just took it apart..( what a pain that was) We can't see a thing wrong with the board...( I expected to see something black, or damaged).... because when it blew today there was a weird smell... sort of like garlic.

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

Bristles quit rotating and smelled like something was burning. It isn't the belt that turns the bristles. Can't afford a repairman, can you help me fix it?
Belt can reamin intact but still jam and burn. It won't necessarily break. I suggest you remove the bottom of the vacuum where the bristles spins and where the belt is located.

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.

Our Dyson sucked something up last week (not sure WHAT) and now the telescoping hose won't ****. Well, it sucks but just BARELY . I took the hose apart and can't see anything, but it makes a weird noise now when you stand the unit up and are not actually vacuuming with it. Help!

I sucked up a long piece of string, and it rolled around the bottom and smelled like burning. The piece of string is gone, but the motor doesn't sound like its engaging. Is this going to be expensive? Can I do it myself?
Flip the vac over take off the bottom cover plate to expose the belt and see if it still actually on the shaft, more than likely when you tried to run the vac while the string was wrapped around the beaterbar it caused the belt to either snap or stre ...

Which Kenmore vacuum cleaners are made by Panasonic? Are all of their direct drive machines made by Panasonic? We have a blue Hoover Windtunnel with the dirt sensor. It cleans well, but it is unbelievably noisy. I wondered if something was out of place and the brushes were hitting, but everything looks normal. We bought Kenmore models 36722 and 36724 and love them. I believe they were made by Panasonic. Our Kirby sits in the basement. Much heavier. These are quiet and clean well. I would like an

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci
Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
