Question about Eureka Super Broom 286 Vacuum
I cleaned the house with this eureka super broom on Sunday. I went to use it today & is won't turn on. Does this type of compact vacuum have a reset button?
When machine does not work, first check wall outlet ( plug in an hair dryer or table lamp to check wall outlet. ) and it that is OK than check your power cord for break ( if wire's are broken inside outer coating the cord will be very weak at that point )

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.

If the red light is one the says "check brushroll" then you have to take it apart to find out what the problem is. It might be that the roll has too much stuff rapped around it so you have to take it out and clean. It could also be the rubber belt is not properly in place. Once you take the bottom off the belt should go on the far right side. Those are the only things i can think of. I have had mine for 3 years and have never seen a reset switch. Usually when my light comes on it is because there is a lot of hair rapped around my brush roll.

Make sure it is not the electrical outlet that has tripped. If not then you basically have 3 choices. Cord, switch, motor. A service tech. should be able to diagnose.
