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: A burning smell is coming from my vacuum and it

i love those situations... i wish i could be there to help you. anyway, the brushes on the motor could be bad... if the motor gets hot, i wouldn't suggest running it until you fix the motor. click here to check hoover.com for the brushes for the motor.

SOURCE: rubber burning smell and smoke

It sounds like a pulley froze up. Pop the hood have someone start the car while you are looking at the pulleys, you should be able to see the problem.

SOURCE: 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

The white smoke has nothing to do with the brake fluid loss. Look around the brake master cylinder, brake lines and joiners and brakes for signs of moisture. They should all be clean and dry any build up of dirt could be a hydraulic leak. The white smoke is more likely from warn valve guides.

I replaced the belt as I have done before on Self-Propelled Vision. When turned on it is very loud and left on too long will smoke and you can smell the belt deteriorating. I do not feel this is a belt...


The best way to check if the motor is burning or not is to go back into the unit and take the belt off of the motor shaft. If the unit does the same thing and burns or even if the lights flicker when the unit is on, then it is definitely the motor.

Usually the burning smell associated with this is like a burnt match or burnt wood.

good luck.

Hi There,

When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.

It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular model are notorious for breaking, but the fact that your machine doesn't come on at all after this happened, sounds like it may be the motor.

Both of these issues have a unique smelling smoke. If the smoke smelled like an electrical burning smell, this indicates it's your motor. If the smoke smelled more like burning rubber, then it's probably your belts.

If the smoke smelled like burning rubber, here's a video that we've recorded showing step by step how to inspect, trouble shoot, and replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner. If you open it up and the belts are still in tact, then this probably is a more serious problem of the motor burning out.

. I'd be more then happy to walk you through more advanced diagnosing if this doesn't fix your problem, please just use the comment box here on the Fixya repair page.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave some feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community if the repair solution was able to fix your problem.

Thanks again,

PONITAC GRAND AM 1999/ STALLING SMELLS OF BURNING GAS


White smoke tells me that you have entered the land of "blown head gasket" Is temp normal and coolant full? If not, you are definitely there. Job is not difficult for a reasonably experienced tech, if you're not, either get a manual and follow instructions very carefully, or, bring it to a reputable shop. Parts are under 300... Don't forget to replace cylinder head bolts (they might look OK but are not to be re-used.)

Burning smell and smoke


When you turn it on....is the belt turning the brushes? Something may be caught causing the brushes to stick and the belt to just grind the brush assembly.
