Hoover vacuum started smoking


Sounds like the roller became stuck and the motor burnt the belt into. I worked on Hovers for years and that is the most common problem.

Samsung vcu366 making loud noise but picks up


what does the really loud noise sound like? Is it a loud, whining sound? if so, the motor may be getting ready to go out. Also check that the belt isn't stuck-though you would smell burning rubber if that were the case.

Was hoovering when my DC04 made a funny high pitched noise then a whirring noise, this was accompanied by a smell of burning and a puff of smoke! Almost sounds like it might be a clutch slipping, is this...


OK... the DC04 doesn't have a clutch. My best guess is that the belt that drives the brush roll has broken. The smell of burning and smoke puff were probably caused by the motor suddenly speeding up when freed of its burden of driving the brush roll. For illustrated guidance on checking (and if necessary changing) the belt, go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC04 Belt Change Guide".
I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate this response. If not, please post a reply and I'll try again. Good luck!

Vacuum sounds like an airplane after 1 year of use.


the motor bearings are starting to fail most likely. You can diagnose the source of the noise by removing the brushroll and belt, could possibly be the brushroll bearings but if you still get the noise when the belt is off its the motor.

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:

Vax mach 5 burning smell and revving loud


The revving/burning is because the belt is burning off and the power head motor is running without load...
Flip the carpet power head upside down on the rug and look for visible screws and screwdriver release slots on the bottom plate of the head.
When you remove the burned belt determine the cause. Will the brush roll freely or is it jammed with hair and fiber?. Clean the burned rubber from the motor shaft before replacing the broken belt, available at a vac specialty shop.

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).
