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.

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.

SOURCE: How do I to change the belt on an eureka altima 12?

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.

SOURCE: I have a Eureka Altima vaccuum and it no longer

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.

I purchased a eureka airspeed unlimited rEwing and it is soo loud..is it supposed to be?


That depends, is it just loud or is it loud from a vibrating noise? Does the machine shake? If not, then the machine is just loud unfortunately.

Our vacuum smells like burning rubber. Does it


Burning rubber smell means the brush belt need attention. Make sure the brush is turning freely and replace the belt

Burning smell and not picking up dirt


You probably need to change the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and to the manual:

Not picking up at all...burning smell..belt seems fine.


its one of 2 things, either your hose is blocked or you need a new belt,they do stretch over time. possibly the brushbar needs replacing too.

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).
