If the motor sounds scratchy and is making a burning smell, or sparking you will need to replace the motor or the entire vac. Carbon brushes will rarely fix this as it is a high RPM motor

Oreck vacuum cleaner stop and burn smell


sounds like hair or string or something like that is wrapped around the beater bar(the long brush under the head that brushes the carpet) keeping it from turning. The belt that drives the bar is getting hot because the beater bar is stuck.

My kenmore whispertone vacuum has a weird smell


The motor may be burning out. Excessive current drain through the cord would cause it to become warm.

I have a steam vac spinscrub carpet cleaner works good but it just started smelling like it was burning and started to smoke


Anytime someone says they smell something burning on any type of vacuum cleaner of carpet cleaner etc. All I can think of is the belt is rubbing on plastic which would cause the sense of something burning because you possibly are smelling the belt........

I love my floor mate which I bought last year. Now it is making a funny sound and has a weird burning smell. I was told to take it to a repair shop but before spending the money I want to find out if this...


It may be the belt. Sometime the motor spins but the belt is not spinning with it. This causes the belt to heat-up and burn/melt. The burned rubber maybe what you're smelling and sometime make funny noise and hard to push the vacuum.

Hoover H3030-006 240 V Motor making a loud sound and burning smell


If you have little to no suction, that sound is happening because you most likely have a clog some were in the vacuum.

smell is probably your motor over working itself do to the clog.

also double check your belts on your brushes that they are moving with the motor. smell and sound could come from the brushes being jammed which would cause the belt to freeze and heat up and could burn the belt and or your motor.

if it is still running though your not in the red yetm so triple check that the machine is cleared off all clogs and jams in the belts and brushes.

Burnt smell is probably the belt slipping. Even though it looks OK, either the belt needs replacement and/or the roller needs cleaning and/or lubrication at the ends. Try cleaning the roller ends first and then light lubrication with WD40. If belt works, you are done. If not, replace belt.

Burning smell


Hi. What does the burning smell of? Is it 'rubbery', or is it acrid and 'chemically'?! The most common item to 'burn' is the belt which drives the rotating brush at the front. Does your cleaner have a belt? This would give a burning rubber smell. The instructions should explain how to change the belt - have a close look and see if the belt has been slipping on the motor spindle. If it has, then it'll probably be worn at this point and should be replaced. A common cause of this happening is the brush bar getting caught in something - edge or rug, etc - and being forced to a standstill. If the smell is more 'acrid', it could be a problem with the motor. This is a repair service job.
