Burning smell and noisy motor


burning smell is over heating motor --could be bearings but if it is an old machine it could be the impeller blades that create the vacuum are loose --noise and that is loading up the motor
unless it is a new and expensive vacuum cleaner you could take it in to an appliance repair shop for a quote or if old simply junk it and get a new one

How do I check my hoover floormate deluxe spinscrub's filter and motor? Thanks in advance!!


The filter is at the top of the recovery tank (dirty water tank), should be replaced when dirty or odors occur. as to your motor, there is no way for an end user to remove any cover and check it. If you are experiencing noise, have it checked by an authorized service center.

Hi, how do I check my hoover floormate deluxe spinscrub's filter and motor?


Hi Mike! To check the filter on the Floormate deluxe, remove the dirty water tank and pull up on tank lid to separate from the base. Check foam filter for debris, if filter has debris, rinse it with water. To prevent internal damage make sure you are using only the Hoover Floormate detergent. If the machine is still noisy and smells bad we recommend taking it in to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to find the nearest service center to you. Hope this helps!

Smelled burned wire, then motor just slowly died. Upright Windtunnel 2.1 bagged


I suspect it's the motor you smelled and not a wire. To find out for sure, you can either remove the motor and smell it (bad odor means bad motor) or take it to a repair shop and let the repair tech check it out.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

Numatic gve370 canister wet/dry motor gone noisy


Try blowing out the motor housing with commpressed air through the cooling vents as it is running, if that dont quiet it down it may be the bearings are dry and need to be oiled, use 20w 3 in 1 oil in the blue container.

Wind tunnel supreme sounds very loud


Sounds like a bad motor, you have a years warranty on this, take it in for warranty repair. You will void the warranty if you mess with it.

My vampyr 5040 vacuum has lost suction and is starting to smell. can it be fixed economically?


Lose of suction can be from a clog in the hose, dirt inlet by the brush roll, or the motor running slow. A smell, depends which, if a rubber smell, then could be a bad belt and/or brush roll. An electrical smell, could be the motor going bad, if it is the motor, it will need to be replaced.

Very noisy


Usually when the motor fan or motor bearings go bad, it will run very loud. You will have to replace the motor. Part #2031214, sells for around $55.
