The only rubber part is the belt that drives the drum around. The belt rides on a tensioner which has a pulley on it with a bearing built into it. When the bearing goes bad the pulley will not turn freely causing the belt to get hot and smell. Its time for a new pully and bearing assembly for your dryer

My new hover floormate is running very loudly and it smells like burning rubber. it seems to be working okay otherwise.


If it's new ( as in less than 30 days ) take it back where you bought it and get it repaired or replaced. If it's over 30 days take it to your nearest Hoover warranty station. It shouldn't smell like burning rubber.

Oven makes loud noice, it will not heat and smells like burning


This is a classic symptom of the magnetron failing, gives a odour in some cases when it dies. This is the heart of the microwave oven and the most expensive part.

I change the coupler of a kenmore washer, but when i starter to work again, there is a noice, kind a ruber noice.


I'd pull the cabinet and check the coupler again.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

If you havn't completely seated the plastic pieces, the rubber can be damaged and you'd hear/smell rubber burning.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:
