SOURCE: smoking belt
Belt is slipping because the bearings on the beater brushes, which it turns, are jammed or full of dust.
Alternatively the belt has stretched after being overheated and needs replacing because it now slips.

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.

the belt is on the bottom right (looking at it from the front). the Eureka website does have the manual for download, http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/80244.pdf
With the vacuum flattened (straightened) out, turn it over and remove the back roller cover, (2 screws) once off, the roller should just pop out on the opposite side (opposite from the belt). Don't forget to turn the roller to center the belt once you have it on.

How long hace you had your vacuum? THe belts on this vacuum are actually supposed to last a really long time. If the belts brake faster when your using the hose that impies your clutch which tightens and loosens your belt to keep the brush from spinning while the vacuum is upright couild be malfuntioning. If you post your serial number i can tell you if your still under manufacturers warranty.
