Question about Dirt Devil M130000 ''i'' Dual Cyclonic Upright Vacuum Cleaner Vacuum
Yes I have brush button on.I have reset several times.I believe belt(or motor) that turns brush has gotten hot.We had vacuum sitting on couch,using furniture attachment,brushes where turning vacuum got very warm smelled like a burnt belt
The brush roller itself has crud jammed in it. it is not the belt. the smell however - is the belt being burnt as the small metal axle tries to turn the who unit - but the belt wont move - so the small axle spins and burns into the belt. this can burn the belt and melt it and can also stress the motor which is the real pricey repair and not worth it.
pop the roller out of the bottom and hold the very end 'cap' - now spin the roller with your hand - if it doesn't spin with next to no effort - there are probably hairs and threads inside that gumming it up so it wont spin. this is NOT referring to the outside of the roller which can be the issue - untangle any pet or human hairs - carpet strings etc etc - this can solve the issues as well. but regarding the inside turning swivel on the brushroll - some models the end caps come off - some they do not. i put a razor on the sides and cut up some hairs and strings till it was spinning again by hand but it was still not enough to allow the brush to spin on all settings. eventually i was forced to buy a new roller (i have jaguar upright - old model m085830t) - hope this helps -
a few more words of advice - when you buy a vac - once a month or so flip it over and cut out long hairs - threads - and strings - your vac will last forever - if you do this - if it smokes - turn it off right away parts are burning lol

Ok I would say the belt burnt into if you can turn it on and the motor runs it is the belt . I would pull it apart and replace the belt.
