This must be an Eureka vacuum, On the top cover, near the from, are some slots, there is a screw on each side, remove them and the cover will come off. part #54312 U belt. Brush part # is 60252-2 if you need a new one.

My hoover steam vac is making a horrible noise and smells like its burning


Something may have jammed the brush roller, preventing rotation. This causes the motor shaft to rotate in one spot on the belt, causing the burning rubber smell. Eventually, the belt will break. You need to find what caused the jam and remove it. It would be a good idea to replace the belt as a burned belt is unlikely to last much longer.

Why is my making a really loud noise and smells burnt when I turn it on. I have a new belt on it.


Improper installation of belt can result in a loose or off center belt which will flap and make lots of noise. It can also result in the burning rubber smell. The belt is probably ruined now, and will need to be replaced again. Make sure new ones are installed and centered correctly.

Vacuum smells like rubber burning. Replaced belt. same result


My vacuum's belt fell off, So I fixed it. Two days later my vacuum wouldn't turn on, so I opened it up again and took out a dust ball in between the electrical wires. I turned it on and sparks and snapping sounds came form the motor. Also burning rubber smell, What wrong? Is my vacuum fixable?, or should I buy a new vacuum?

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:

What are indications that the motor's going out?


Burned rubber is most likely your belt. If it worked before on this carpet, then I would replace the belt. There are many indications that your motor is going bad, if you suspect this then take it to your vac shop for service.

Belt is hot to touch


If the belt is hot or you smell it burning then chances are it has stretched a little and is slipping on either the motor shaft or beater bar shaft. If you are sure the beater bar is not restricted from turning then I would just replace it. Try this.. With the power cord disconnected, open the vac head to gain access to the beater brush and belt.. then remove the belt.. place the beater bar back into its holder and see if it easily turns by hand.. if it is free to turn..then plug the vac in and turn it on for a few seconds.. you will see and hear the motor come on but you should NOT smell anything burning at that time. If you do.. you may have another issue with the motor or power cord or both.. if you don't smell anything burning, then disconnect the power and just replace the belt.... Good luck.

Well there is no belt, and not sure what the rubber would be from, everything is plastic or metal. Unless it is really an electrical smell, which means the motor is going bad.
