SOURCE: Burning smell and smoke
I ran into a scenario similar to this at work. With the burning smell and smoke combined, it leaves only one problem remaining; the motor. The motor and the pulley that enables the belt to spin could be malfunctioning (causing friction between the 2 parts) and thus causes the burning smell and the smoke. I'd highly advise not to touch either part after having the unit on (YOU WILL BURN YOURSELF).
The only other likely possibility is to make sure there aren't any hairs caught in or around the motor and the bearings of the agitator.

SOURCE: dirt smell
If this thing has a fast-spinning belt in the "head" of the unit, you are smelling the dust that is being collected in the back of the little drive "chamber" and is being heated up by the motor and the friction of the belt. This is a pretty common thing on vacuum cleaners designed like the Oreck. If it is huge bunnies of dust, well then that means there is a leak somewhere...

Make sure that the filter is completely dry before you reinsert it. If not, it will mildew, emitting a horrible smell. When you clean your cylinder, you must wait for at least three to four days to make sure that it is completely dry.
