Question about Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum
When I vacuum, it begins to smell like something is burning. I turn it off and see smoke coming from the back of the vacuum (where the motor is) what is my problem and how do I fix it??
I agree, your belt is worn and has stretched, so the motor is unable to spin the brush roll. It is a cheap and easy fix.

Probably the belt..
Turn it over so the bottom is facing up..
Remove the plate that surounds the brush..
Check to se if brush is spinning frely and that the belt is on there poroper
