Hi If its smoking the belt needs replaced. Check the top of the hood for two or three crosshead screws; two at the front and one under neath the duster part. The belt may be on its way out.
Also if its not sucking anything up, it may well be clogged. Check the drive belt area where the main dust channel is, top and bottom hose too.
Also make sure than the filters in the bin/pleated cones are completely clear of dust. If washing make sure the filters are completely dry before putting them back in.
