Burnt smell is probably the belt slipping. Even though it looks OK, either the belt needs replacement and/or the roller needs cleaning and/or lubrication at the ends. Try cleaning the roller ends first and then light lubrication with WD40. If belt works, you are done. If not, replace belt.

sounds like you have something stuck in the beater bar/roller and the belt is slipping. You're probably going to have to take it out and replace the belt. Also check for wads in the passages.

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:

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The rattle is the clutch engaging. It can happen for a couple of reasons. The best case for you is if there is something caught in the brush roller that you can simply remove. The next best is that the end caps of the brush are full of junk that you will be able to remove. Its not easy getting the brush out to clean there but it can be done.
If the brush spins in your hand easily when the brush is removed then it is the clutch itself. THe main roller often melts which is caused when the tension on the belt gets to high thus creating too much heat. THis can be resolved only with a new clutch.
Hope this helps, if you have more questions dont hesitate to reply or if you need parts just visit NelsonVacuums.com.au.
Happy Vacuuming :)

Perform general maintenance - cleaning filters,etc. If it still exists, take it apart and check the motor... If the motor is sooty on the copper coils inside, then it's had it's day. You could try and buy a replacement motor, but typically, its cheaper just to get a new hoover.
