Sounds like the brush that the belt is supposed to turn is bound up tight. Need to remove the brush and clean all debris from it. Where you can get at the center rod for the brush, the rod that the brush spins around, clean the ends and add some WD40, being sure not to get it on the belt. This should remedy the problem of the belts burning as long as the belt is put on correctly.

I put a new belt on my vacuum cleaner and it burned off because the brushes won't turn


Hair, dirt and dust can build up underneath the end caps on the brushroll which can damage the bearings if your brush roll has them. If not cleaned occasionally the debris will cause friction which can keep the brushroll from spinning freely which will cause the fast spinning motor shaft to melt the new belt. The old belt was likely loose enough it did not have enough friction to burn the belt. Many people assume they got a faulty belt when this happens but it's usually a problem with the brushroll. The brushroll is very important to getting dirt out of carpets and should be replaced every few years. I suggest a new brush roll and be sure to remove it occasionally to clean it and put on a new belt at least once a year.

Kirby Sentria 2 burning smell (not belt)


Actually it can. If the machine has a defect but the good news is that is has a 3 year warranty. Take it to a Kirby authorized repair shop not a vac and sew and they will fix it right up....I am a factory authorized service tech for the Kirby co.

Every so often I get a smell of burning from my g4 Kirby vacuum. I noticed it's when I'm vacuuming a fairly new rug on this house I clean. Should I be concerned?


If it is a smell of burning rubber - most likely your vacuum belt is overdue for replacement.

At this point - remove the brush roller, remove the old belt, clean off your brush roller and remove any string or hair that may be bound up around it (usually around where the belt goes or on the sides), and put on a new belt. Your Kirby should act good as new if your bag is replaced at the same time.

If the brush roller has too much string and hair wrapped around it, many times the brush roller will not spin as fast as the belt is driving it and you will get that burning smell.

Burning


A guess: either there is something in the fans, stuck in the tubes or the belt is being held in position by debris causing it to burn.

Sebo x1.1 - burning smell


Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.

Yes, replace the brush roll, the ends or end is probably bad and causing the belt to slip and burn up.
