I it is an electrical smell, then you have a bad motor, if a rubber smell, you may have a bad belt and/or brush roll.

If you dopn't change the hepa filter will motor burn up or explode


No. The HEPA filter is simply to collect fine dust and allergens that make it past the water. Hmm. If it gets full/clogged and isn't changed, then the motor is more likely to burn up from overheating. It's more likely it will shut off if the filter gets full. It will not explode.

What would cause the vacuum to smell like something is burning when you turn it on?


90% of the time it is the motor that starts burning. Very little else to cause this. On the oddest occasions there would be wiring burned but that would not allow the unit to switch on if that were the case..

Ok...Check the brush roll is free not sticky..Next is the belt okay, not jamming on the brush roll making the burning smell...You could take off the roll and run motor on its own ..finding out if its the motor..

Blown vacuum fuse?


Sounds like you got a clog in the hose, which depleted the suction. After getting clogged the motor was working overtime and burned up. If your vacuum is still under warranty you should bring it to a warranty repair center to be fixed. Changing a motor in a vacuum is almost as expensive as buying a new vacuum cleaner. So if your vacuum is out of warranty I think you should probably buy a new one.

Burning smell coming from vacuum


use a penny to turn the 2 screws on top a quater turn then fold down the vacuum and lift up the cover and you will have access to the belt. Clean the small hepa filter with soapy water. their may be 2 of them. The cannnister filters need to be shaken but not washed. Good luck.
