SOURCE: burning smell and smoke from motor

Sounds like the transmission is jammed.  This will cause the motor to bog and burn.

I have a steam vac spinscrub carpet cleaner works good but it just started smelling like it was burning and started to smoke


Anytime someone says they smell something burning on any type of vacuum cleaner of carpet cleaner etc. All I can think of is the belt is rubbing on plastic which would cause the sense of something burning because you possibly are smelling the belt........

I can answer some of your questions without being there in person.
The smell inside the van is from fresh air entering the venting system. Not sure why you don't get it from all vents. The fresh air intake is in front of the windshield and will pick up any smells from the engine compartment.
Loosing the serpentine belt would not necessarily cause you to loose ps fluid, but having a leak could drain the pump and damage the bearings in the pump, causing the pump pulley to drag on the belt.
The ps pump could be in the final stage of failing.
And the shaft seal in the pump could be leaking fluid onto the engine and exhaust.

I accidently sucked up a pen cap and it stopped working then it began smoking and the belt snapped??


Take the pen cap out of where it is stuck and replace the belt. Most likely the smoke was from the belt slipping around the gear and getting hot. Did the smoke smell like burning rubber?

Burning smell


Unlock the sweeper brushes and take them out. on each end is a cup bearing and should be free of debris.
then check around and under the belt and likely there is debris wrapped around it.
the post is getting hot as your pulling too much of a load.
though if it continues the motor may have a bad set of motor brushes (inside the motor) or bad wiring (kinda unlikely).
