Belt probably melted due to brush assembly seezing ,this has a bearing on each side and if you replace the belt and brush assembly make sure you clean all the ols belt residue off the shaft motor ,put it all back and you are good to go

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was...


Hi There,

When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.

It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular model are notorious for breaking, but the fact that your machine doesn't come on at all after this happened, sounds like it may be the motor.

Both of these issues have a unique smelling smoke. If the smoke smelled like an electrical burning smell, this indicates it's your motor. If the smoke smelled more like burning rubber, then it's probably your belts.

If the smoke smelled like burning rubber, here's a video that we've recorded showing step by step how to inspect, trouble shoot, and replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner. If you open it up and the belts are still in tact, then this probably is a more serious problem of the motor burning out.

. I'd be more then happy to walk you through more advanced diagnosing if this doesn't fix your problem, please just use the comment box here on the Fixya repair page.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave some feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community if the repair solution was able to fix your problem.

Thanks again,

Smoke coming out!


This sounds electrical. If you have had this one year or less then it should be under warranty. find your local Hoover warranty dealer at the Hoover website hoover.com

Smoke coming from lower base of vacuum cleaner


Make sure everything is dried off, I encountered the same symptoms once when I had some water remaining in the rotating brush after wiping the machine down.

Vacuum plugged in but not on, smoke started coming from the motor


The motor winding burned out. Perhaps the motor was very hot when the vac was turned off after the last use and the insulation of the motor windings broke down when the air stopped moving thought the unit. Perhaps also the polarity of the receptacle it was plugged into is reversed or the plug on the vacuum is not polarized. Those things in combination could cause this but this is kind of a long shot guess. In any case the blower motor is likely burned out and will need to be replaced and checked out.

Bunning smell.


Is it an electrical smell or a rubber type smell. If there is no smoke, it could be that the belt is slipping and causing a smell. If it is the motor, usually it would smoke, or at least quit running and making strange noises.

Eureka Altima is smoking!

Help! My vacuum is smoking. It won’t work anymore and starts to smoke as soon as it gets turned on.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model #2996AVS – it is probably doing 2 things, it could be the belt and or brushroll and the easiest ay to check is to remove the belt and see if the motor smokes, if the motor is fine then buy a new belt and check the brushroll to see if the brushroll spins freely, there are bearings in the brushroll and thread and hair get bound up in the ends and needs to be cleaned out. So #1, check the belt – no smoke from the motor then check the brushroll to see if it spins freely then changed the belt. If the motor smokes check your purchase date it may still be under the one year factory warranty from the dop. #2. Either clean or replace the brushroll and belt. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Burning smell and smoke


When you turn it on....is the belt turning the brushes? Something may be caught causing the brushes to stick and the belt to just grind the brush assembly.

Clattering sound, then smoke


the clattering sound was probably a stone or something that was being bounced around by the rotating bush. It jammed which caused the belt to slip and cause the smoke you saw. You can probably get away with finding and clearing the jam but I would inspect the belt just to make sure.
