Question about Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum
Eureka Altima has a paper filter below the dirt catcher. It clogs quickly and doesn't allow air to flow into the motor. You can check if the issue is clogged filters by removing ALL your filters including the yellow plastic filter screwed in above the the dirt catcher, and then turning on vacuum with them removed. If there is no burning smell it's one of the filters.

Mosture has gotten into the motor. Take the bottom tank off and let the unit run for 30 seconds. It will dry out the compartment
