Question about Eureka AirSpeed One Bagless Upright Vacuum, AS2000A
One day it suddenly began to smell like burning and was very loud. Cleaned it out completely and checked the belt. That did not solve the issue.

SOURCE: Eureka power failure
The windings have a temperature sensor that "usually" resets when it detects an over heating problem. The other alternative is a light bulb in series with the motor that has popped, this will stop the motor from running.
I'd bet on the thermostat in series with the windings first though, can be replaced if you can get the cleaner apart.

ok, i guess it is the motor then because i checked the brush and it turns and the belt seems to be okay now, just loud motor.
thanks for the help!

SOURCE: Burning smell and smoke
I ran into a scenario similar to this at work. With the burning smell and smoke combined, it leaves only one problem remaining; the motor. The motor and the pulley that enables the belt to spin could be malfunctioning (causing friction between the 2 parts) and thus causes the burning smell and the smoke. I'd highly advise not to touch either part after having the unit on (YOU WILL BURN YOURSELF).
The only other likely possibility is to make sure there aren't any hairs caught in or around the motor and the bearings of the agitator.

the belt is on the bottom right (looking at it from the front). the Eureka website does have the manual for download, http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/80244.pdf
With the vacuum flattened (straightened) out, turn it over and remove the back roller cover, (2 screws) once off, the roller should just pop out on the opposite side (opposite from the belt). Don't forget to turn the roller to center the belt once you have it on.

This bagless model gets buildup of really fine dirt in the motor and starts to clog up the fan airducts. You will need to take the motor out and clean it.
