It can be that the capacitor has burst which has resulted in the total loss of power to the motor. So open the vacuum and check for the motor section to find if there is a leak.

Samsung vcu366 making loud noise but picks up


what does the really loud noise sound like? Is it a loud, whining sound? if so, the motor may be getting ready to go out. Also check that the belt isn't stuck-though you would smell burning rubber if that were the case.

Vacuum motor noise and smell


If the ball was stuck and you sucked water into the motor it could cause it to smell like it's burning if it ruined the motor

My dc24 has started making a loud noise which seems to be coming from the ball. I switched its off when it started to smell of a slight burning or warm smell. Vacuum is only 2.5 years old, filters are...


Sounds as if there is something stuck in the vacuum causing the beater bar to stop turning while the belt continues to turn giving off the burning smell.

Burning smell


The motor is burnt out. Good news is that most central vacuums are really easy to get into so replacing the motor shouldn't be too hard. I haven't worked on that exact machine but the fault is unmistakable.

Why is my making a really loud noise and smells burnt when I turn it on. I have a new belt on it.


Improper installation of belt can result in a loose or off center belt which will flap and make lots of noise. It can also result in the burning rubber smell. The belt is probably ruined now, and will need to be replaced again. Make sure new ones are installed and centered correctly.

Burning smell from motor


Hi,
Check your filter and also check that nothing got pulled into the motor...otherwise the motor is burning up and will need to be replaced... probably cheaper to replace the whole vacuum..

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

My vacuum makes a really loud noise when I turn it on. It was working and now it smells like something is burning. I check the belt- it looks ok.


The belt may look okay but it still can be stretched or worn and can be slipping on the motor shaft and thats why you have the burning smell. I would try changing the belt. Here is a link to the manual and a link to the belt you need:
