Replace the Roller Brush. Sounds like bearing in it is locking up and the the belt is slipping and not turning the Roller Brush as it has a locked up bearing. You will need to go ahead and get a replacement belt just in case you have stretched the older belt to a bigger size. I had this same experience with a Hoover and it solved my problems of "rubber burnt smell".
If you have little to no suction, that sound is happening because you most likely have a clog some were in the vacuum.
smell is probably your motor over working itself do to the clog.
also double check your belts on your brushes that they are moving with the motor. smell and sound could come from the brushes being jammed which would cause the belt to freeze and heat up and could burn the belt and or your motor.
if it is still running though your not in the red yetm so triple check that the machine is cleared off all clogs and jams in the belts and brushes.
Sounds like the belt for sure. Here is a link with the owners manual. It shows how to get to and change the belt. http://www.eureka.com/index.php?option=com_productdisplay&view=productdisplay&task=getproducts&productid=2&product_model=2991AVZ
i have replaced vacumm belts before .. Normally it is located underneath..flip over the vacumm unscrew some screws.. open the cover..youll see a large roller pin type object remove it carefully noting how it is placed..pull it out.. and replace the belt...you can also clean off the debris while doing this..an added plus..for vacumm maintenace..
PLease indicate whether this has helped you at all ..Thank You
If you can hear the power nozzle motor running, but the belt doesn't spin, it is most likely the belt. You will have to get the belt from an Aerus dealer or a Vac shop. If you want to put the belt on yourself, you can. There or five or six screws on the bottom of the power nozzle that need to be removed and the cover should come off. Once the cover is off, you will see the belt and how to change it. Good Luck!!
