Is it a smell like burning rubber. If it is your rubber drive belt has to much stress on it and is slipping. The friction is causing it to get hot and melt.

I'm having aproblem with my kirby g5 vacume i'vereplaced the gaskets and i can still smell dust when i use it


Did you try vacuuming out the inside of the cloth bag? Or washing it? Many times the dirt makes its way out of the paper and back into the room through that cloth bag.

My numatic Hoover is brilliant but it smells what part needs changing? It's not a burning smell, but a musky almost cabbage smell?


It could be the sponge filters or the dust partition that need replacing. But it might also be coming from the motor, best bet is to get it checked out.

My daughter cleaned up the babys ***** with vacum now it smells lie throwup everytime we use vacum.we cleaned the hoses still smells .I thinits in the motor .can i clean the motorany suggestions before i...


SInce the damage is done we cannot but think of a solution. It seems the internal filters , the hose and possible the linings within can be slightly clogged.
The only option left to us is to get the above sections cleaned, the filter replaced, the motor flushed with a wash of kerosene-- you must remove the motor and carefully wash and dry all the parts, the hose and replace the filters.
I am sure you can use surgical gloves and mask in case the odour is annoying but it is worth trying before you need to dump a good machine.
Good Luck

When using the vacum it is giving off a bad smell. we do have a dog but i haver changed the bag and changed the filter


If it is due to the dog, it is common. Take some cotton balls, put some of your favorite cologne or perfume on them and **** them into the cleaner. You can also spray around the inside of the bag area and the hose with Lysol.

Eureka Boss 4870gz shuts off (thermal protector) after 2 or 3 min


wiggle the cord while running the vac. if it cuts off from that, then you most likely have a bad switch or cord. if the motor was bad, you would smell it. it smells aweful.

I have a hoover mach 5 multi-chamber cyclonic vacum cleaner and it keeps getting hot and quitting.it's got a strong smell like something is burned when it gets hot also.


if its giving off that strong smell then the motor is bad. probably caused by not keeping the filters clean. on any bagless machine one has to clean the entire vacuum after almost every use to keep the unit operating correctly

My hoover smells of ammonia


Hello,
I too have a problem with a bad smell coming from my henry hound hoover, but thats probely because i haven't used a hoover bag. I took the cloth filter out,banged all the dust off, then sprayed it with 'RugDoctor' pet stain remover for carpets and upholstery. It still smells a bit, but not half as bad as befor. I have now ordered a reusable,zipable,washable cloth hoover bag especially made for Henry's. It cost £8.80 from ebay with free postage. Hope this helps Nikki.

My Vacuum cleaner smells bad. What can I do to stop that?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Depending on the brand name and model # you should do a few things, try changing the bag and or change or clean the filter depending on what type of vacuum you have, a dirt cup model or a bag system. The vacuum cleaner dealers have Vacuum crystals that can be sprinkled down on the carpet and then you can pup the crystals from the carpet with your vacuum. If not I suggest that you take it in for a good and general cleaning – a lot of times the dirt and dust get built up under the hood and just sits there – especially if you have pets and it is a hard smell to get rid of unless you have it serviced or cleaned. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Won't start.


There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn't find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt.
