Hi,

Actually there not supposed to burn up. I have read some reviews on that model Kenmore and it seems it is plagued by electrical problems.

I would definitely contact Sears customer service.

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.

Hi the burning smell is from the Motor. Your Motor has burnt out. You will need it replaced.

A new motor will cost around £40

If you would like us to advise you on how to swap the motors over then please order the motor and come back to us.

When I turn the vacuum on it sounds really loud, louder than usual, and after a few minutes it smells like burning rubber around the canister. The vacuum is still sucking.


The armature is probably missing a plate and the motor is about ready to burn up, but check the filter and screen on the bottom of the motor first. The screen can be checked by removing the filter and looking up at the motor from below. Clean if necessary by removing the motor. Unplug the unit first. If the motor sounds rough and smells like something electrical burning. It's going to need to be replaced. Check your model # and order a replacement. Pretty easy to install if you get the right motor. Get the foam gasket for under the motor if your replacing a three stage motor.

Vacuum is making a burning smell from the motor/fan.


Hello,

Actually the screws to access the motor on Kenmore canisters are located underneath of the foot pedal that retracts the cord reel, and there's usually also two screws that underneath of the tool lid arms.

You may access the screws underneath of the cord reel by prying the foot pedal off of the vacuum. Simply put a flat head screw driver in between where the foot pedal and the vacuum cleaner meet on the top of the machine, and pry upwards with the screw driver. Once you remove the pedal you'll see the screws and have direct access to the vacuums motor.


If you are trying to access the power nozzle motor, here's a detailed step by step instruction tutorial that will walk you right through it.

When a vacuum cleaner smells like something is burning, it can only really be one of two things. Either the rubber belt inside of the power nozzle is burning, or the motor is burning. If it's the belt that's burning, it will be a burning rubber type of smell, but if it's the electrical motor, it will be more of an electrical smell.

If you have any further quesitons, please feel free to reply using the clarification request tool here on Fixya. I'm always more then happy to answer any follow up questions.

The motor makes a weird sound and starts to heat and smell like something is burning


If the motor sounds scratchy and is making a burning smell, or sparking you will need to replace the motor or the entire vac. Carbon brushes will rarely fix this as it is a high RPM motor

Burning odor and burning at thewhite line


It's time for a new motor, although it might not be worth it as your probably going to spend roughly 60 dollars for it and new ones are a little over a hundred

Motor is getting loud and smells like is burning
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I am not sure what type of vacuum, make or model # it is but if your motor is getting loud and it smells like it is burning, it could be 2 things, either you have a broken fan blade or your motor is on it’s last legs and is burning up and would be in need of a new fan and motor replacement. Please feel free t contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Sebo x1.1 - burning smell


Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.
