What is causing the beater bar brush to spin extremely fast?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

First thing is to be sure to unplug your vacuum. Once you begin smelling a burning smell it's essential to stop vacuuming immediately.

One of two things may be happing here:

1) Your brush roll may need replacing. It's possible that the sides where it attaches to the vacuum have been worn down with age. The bristles falling off is a clear indicator that it's time to replace the brush roll. Also, look for debris, or hair that's wrapped around the brush. Remove all of this with either a razor, or a scissor.

2) Check your vacuums belt. Is it wrapped around the brush roll at all, or is too loose? If so, this means there's no tension around your brush roll and it could be causing your vacuum to overwork the motor and overheat, hence the smell.

Clean this area out and then replace the brush roll and belt. You should be seeing a noticeable difference in both your vacuums suction, and a lack in the burning smell.

The burn smell means you should take it to a qualified Electrolux repair facility. It may be an electrical issue and could catch on fire if not repaired properly.

Hoover Dimension has no suction and it smells of something burning


pets in house? check all hose passages for "hairball" clog...and check the drivebelt that spins the brush...(some have an electric motor to spin the brush, thus no belt)

No suction on my Hoover Dimension


If you smell something burning unplug until problem is found and fixed, suspect if no suction hose is blocked and if brush wheel it or the belt may be causing the smell, a bad or failing motor is less likely but possible.

Brushes not rotating on kirby vacuum


Change the belt, they stretch after while. If it made a burnt rubber smell or it's > 1 year old this is probably your problem.

I turn on my eureka and i seems theres no suction and it smells like burn


The burning smell is most likely from the drive belt that has seized up for some reason.First and least expensive step to take would be to remove the brush on the bottom of the unit. Clean it thoroughly and remove all debris, especially on the two end pieces. The brush rotates around the two end pieces, so they must be able to be turned by hand. Spray a little WD40 on them if you need to free them up a bit, turn by hand so they are free to move and then replace. If the belt looks work or stretched, now would be a good time to replace it.

Eureka 2961 BVZ no suction, burning smell


I have the same vacuum. The burning smell is letting you know that your belt is either broken or about to break. I have had mine for a year and have had to replace the belt 5 times. Now I have to replace the brush roller 'cause it broke under normal use. My next vacuum will be a Dyson Ball.

Drive and brushes stopped


Look for a missing belt that may have burned off or broken. Was there a burning smell at some point before the roller quit turning? If so, the belt must be replaced. I would also look at the ends of the roller to see if there is any string, hair, etc. that might be binding the roller that needs to be removed.

Burning smell/lost suction


Is the brush roll turning while on the carpet. If the belt is old, then it has stretched and will slip causing a rubber smell. But if it is an electrical smell, then your motor is failing and will need to be replaced.

Vaccum has no suction


Need a new belt -- you might have suction but you need the brush to spin (hard to help without make or model, upright or canister)
