Try the reset drive belt brush button - you'll find it underneath the main power switch on the handle. Also check the brush isn't clogged, by the sole plate by tipping it over and undoing the screws on the bottom place where the beater bar is.

Why does my vax power 2 cylinder hoover make a noise and smell of burning rubber when I turn it on we have cleaned inside and out and all filters


That is the smell of perhaps burning insulation when there is excessive current going into motor. If something in unit is binding the motor will not spin fast enough, generate less back emf, use more current, overheat and burn out!!!!!!!!!!!

If it has a drive belt and that is rubbing up against something and not turning properly that will also cause the smell.

Do not use unit in this condition -you risk permanent damage.

Vax v-091 burning smell and clunking noise


Is there something stuck inside, underneath, being turned along with the motor? burning smell usually means something got caught and the belt snapped. Not expensive and don't know if it's an easy DYI. Shouldn't cost too much to have it repaired or you can google the brand and model and the word belt, see what you find.

Vax keeps turning off after 30 secs some times smells of burning


1) Test the belt for worn
2) Test the power cord for wire burn, or broken
3) Test the main motor, for bearing, LUBE , winding defective or burn.
gOD BLESS YOU.

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still...


Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor.

Motor is making a knocking noise with a burning smell and sparks can be seen when switching on


Sounds like ur FiLTER is CLOGED!

Air was blocked going in the motor thats why ur smeling smething burning, means ur motor is starting to overheat!

Spark in the motor is NORMAL when the CARBON BRUSHES is touching the ARMATURE!

My suggestion is to CLEAN & WASH the filter or buy a NEW one!

Hope that cleans evrything on ur probs!

Smells like the motor is burning. observing sparks. It the motor cooked and is it just time for a replacement?


If you're observing sparks, then yes, just get a new one. With the low prices of good vaccuums its not worth starting a fire with your vaccuum. If it just smells like the motor is burning, check the belt and make sure its rotating freely and if you have an attachment, make sure the brush on the vaccuum is not being stopped while using the attachment. However, if you are seeing sparks,,,, definately time to junk it
