Question about Kenmore 22085 Bagged Canister Vacuum
Kenmore canister vacuum #27515: Slight burning odor or "electrical arc-ing" odor when operated. Someone at store said that maybe the belt needs to be replaced. But isn't the "belt" only a part of the rotating-brush floor attachment? The odor is coming from the main unit, not that part. Unit is only a year old and hasn't had heavy usage.
It sounds like you have bad carbon brushes on the motor. Get replacement brushes from a local vac shop, and take the unit apart. On each side of the motor their is a retangular piece of plastic with what looks like magnets in them. In most cases they are simply held by 2 screws. Replace these brushes and reasemble the unit. If the problem persists you have burned out the comutator on the motor and the whole thing must be replaced.
