What does it smell like? If it smells like burnt anything-it could be that the fan is broken and lodged in the motor. You can see if the fan is good just by looking into it.

What is wrong...My Eureka commercial vacuum C2094g smells like burning rubber, replaced belt (style RD) but it was smaller in size and very hard to put on. Am I using the wrong belt? it looks like the...


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".

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:

My hoover elite rewind is making a louder noise and I can smell something burning when I use it. I have replaced the belt but this did not help.


the smell is either the motor or the belt, if motor hope it is under warranty, if belt make sure brush roll spins freely and replace belt, if brush roll not spin freely replace it first

Hoover canister vacuum (windtunnel)- turned it on and it had good suction, then smoke came out and it smells like something is burning. Is it the motor burning up or something else?


Probably the belt..
Turn it over so the bottom is facing up..
Remove the plate that surounds the brush..
Check to se if brush is spinning frely and that the belt is on there poroper

Burning smell coming from vacuum


use a penny to turn the 2 screws on top a quater turn then fold down the vacuum and lift up the cover and you will have access to the belt. Clean the small hepa filter with soapy water. their may be 2 of them. The cannnister filters need to be shaken but not washed. Good luck.

Rubber smell, Hoover


Well it sound like you do need a new belt because of how the smell is you might want to stop using it because the smell comes from the burning and over heated belt my solution would be to get a new belt and that should fix it if you need anything else you know whre to find me.

Vacuum smell


Your belt is slipping, it is probably stretched and slips trying to drive the brush roll. Take the bottom plate off, check the brush also, make sure the ends turn freely. The belt runs from the brush roll to the motor shaft. If you can't get to the motor shaft, then you will have to remove the top cover.

Don't ignore your instincts. If you think it smells like a scorching belt, you're probably right. Check that the pulley the belt is meant to spin is free to turn. If it isn't, find out why and then sort that out. A.
