If it's new ( as in less than 30 days ) take it back where you bought it and get it repaired or replaced. If it's over 30 days take it to your nearest Hoover warranty station. It shouldn't smell like burning rubber.

Hoover H3030-006 240 V Motor making a loud sound and burning smell


If you have little to no suction, that sound is happening because you most likely have a clog some were in the vacuum.

smell is probably your motor over working itself do to the clog.

also double check your belts on your brushes that they are moving with the motor. smell and sound could come from the brushes being jammed which would cause the belt to freeze and heat up and could burn the belt and or your motor.

if it is still running though your not in the red yetm so triple check that the machine is cleared off all clogs and jams in the belts and brushes.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time

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).
