Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
The problem happens when i turn the machine on. It smells like burning electrical wires or plastic. The sparks seem to be coming from the motor behind the dirty water reservoir. The machine is 5 years old. Thanks.
Unfortunately the motor did go out on this machine. the commentator brushes and the armature are burnt and the motor or the machine will have to be replaced

Be careful. This could be a shorted wire inside where the motor is. If there is sparks , something is exposed and touching. The motor also may be ready to give out. Unless your daring enough to open the whole thing up I would bring it to a shop or replace it.
