Question about Vacuums
You may either have something caught up in the under part of the vacuum or the belt may be broken or partially broken causing it to smell like that. Try laying the vacuum flat on its back and plugging it up. Then turn it on and see if the brushes spin and if they do not, then you will need a new belt which is not expensive. Then check the bristles and the thing that holds up the bristles to see it there are any strings caught in them causing it to smell of burning. Take the strings out and then try it. It should stop smelling of burning.
