Sounds like it could be the switch. Check for continuity at the switch connections on and off.

Hi there,

For guidance on clearing any remaining threads or hair from around the brushbar and resetting the machine, please follow the steps shown in the video below. Please note, the brushbar will never rotate when your machine is upright, so make sure you recline it into the vacuuming position before testing it.

This should allow you to restart the brusbar. However, if this doesn't resolve the issue, or if you can still smell burning when the machine is in use, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can help.

Best wishes,

Burning smell from motor


Hi,
Check your filter and also check that nothing got pulled into the motor...otherwise the motor is burning up and will need to be replaced... probably cheaper to replace the whole vacuum..

Washing machine filled with water, started agitating, then stopped. smells electrical.


Washing machines are built, sealed so that water or any other liquid that enters into the drums, dryer compartments will be isolated and not penetrate to the electrical system of the unit. There are protections to the motors installed beneath. To give you an idea, a motor mostly installed on it is a split-capacitor single phase motor which is protected by a fuse, thermal overload sensor to prevent burning the winding. A possibilty of electrical burning smells is that, a possibility that the thermal protection of the motor winding didn't open or activate. So that the winding may have been burnt and i'm sure your machine will stop immediately. There is also that timers which are cam driven, there is a strip on the timers and switching between clockwise and counterclockwise rotationion is done here. There is also a possibility that this switches strip may have been warp and burning would have occured due to uneven contact points already, carbonization inside this switches would take place, and your machine would stop. I hope this will help, thanks

Heater in 2001 kia spectra stoped working


The burning smell is most likely an issue with the blower motor. These small motors have a hard life and the windings can lose the insulation and short out, hence the burning smell. Another problem can arise if the air intake has filled with leaves and other matter which can be ignited by the fan speed resistor creating the smoke. As this matter rots down, it creates chemicals which can erode the insulation on the motor and cause burning and the eventual failure of the motor. The fan speed resistor is a bank of wirewound or solid state resistors wired across the fan motor which give the individual fan speeds. If these fail then you would lose the fan as well. Search out the fan housing as the resistor is usually fitted into this housing to keep it cool. NEVER turn the fan on if this resistor is out of the housing as it WILL get hot and It can cause a nasty burn..the resistor can have upto 7 wires plugged into it but as to it's exact location, that you will have to find on your own..

Washer stopped during wash cycle, burning smell


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/Dryer-Parts/index.aspx Take a look at what a new motor costs for your machine and go from there. Is may not be a motor is could be a belt or a bearing. I rebiult a washer for less then 50 dollars that one did not need a motor just bearings and a belt. I would take the washer apart so you can get an idea of what went wrong and then look at parts to repair it and decide what to do good luck
