Testimonial: "Will do thank you"

Sounds like you have some sort of debris clogging the intake or it got past the intake. You will also get a burning smell if there's lots of lint etc., around any of the bearings. Take the unit apart to clean and inspect the motor and impeller.

Either you aren't getting the top on correctly so it will latch, or there maybe a problem with the latches. You should have a one year warranty on this, take it back to Sears and have them look at it.

It is supposed to have a round plastic plate and a plastic handle with a nut made in it that tightens against the plate to hold the filter on
