Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

When attachment hose is on, it's extremely loud

When the attachment hose is on, it's extremely loud and smells like something is burning. It does not make this sound when the main head is on though. Any ideas as to what it could be?

That only happens to me if I leave the vacuum on the carpet and don't raise the head before 30 seconds...it is the rubber belt hanging on the metal thing that it sits on. Since the belt is not used with the hose attachment, I cannot imagine what is going on. Therefore, I've been no help at all! Just to let you know it happens to others - just slightly differently.

You will probably find that you have lost fins off the fan at the front where the belt runs. Remove the head and look.

My dc24 has started making a loud noise which seems to be coming from the ball. I switched its off when it started to smell of a slight burning or warm smell. Vacuum is only 2.5 years old, filters are...


Sounds as if there is something stuck in the vacuum causing the beater bar to stop turning while the belt continues to turn giving off the burning smell.

No suction on my Hoover Dimension


If you smell something burning unplug until problem is found and fixed, suspect if no suction hose is blocked and if brush wheel it or the belt may be causing the smell, a bad or failing motor is less likely but possible.

Extremely loud and smells like rubber burning


the loud will be the line is clog up and need to unclog the line, rubber burning will be the belt, which is worn or the brush is jam not allowing the brush to spin freely. check and clean the line and inspect th belt which run from the motor to the brush

Eureka 5197 self propelled bagless upright


Did you check the brush roll when you changed the belt? The smell of rubber would inducate a belt slipping. So if the brush roll (part #61308-2)isn't turning, the belt would get hot and would be slipping. If the motor sounds real loud, then you could have a bad motor(part #60775-4).
