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

Hose does not dispense cleaning solution, and the cleaner solution will immediately go down to the dirty water tank. It can suction, though. Any tips?


sounds to me as if you have calcium deposits from hard water.

Take your cleaner solution reservoir and fill it with Vinegar and Hot water. Place your machine in a dry bathtub and run it until the tank is empty. Do this a couple times. When it works properly run some clear water through.

Vacuum is making a burning smell from the motor/fan.


Hello,

Actually the screws to access the motor on Kenmore canisters are located underneath of the foot pedal that retracts the cord reel, and there's usually also two screws that underneath of the tool lid arms.

You may access the screws underneath of the cord reel by prying the foot pedal off of the vacuum. Simply put a flat head screw driver in between where the foot pedal and the vacuum cleaner meet on the top of the machine, and pry upwards with the screw driver. Once you remove the pedal you'll see the screws and have direct access to the vacuums motor.


If you are trying to access the power nozzle motor, here's a detailed step by step instruction tutorial that will walk you right through it.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t4499227-need_replace_belt_in_kenmore_vacuum

When a vacuum cleaner smells like something is burning, it can only really be one of two things. Either the rubber belt inside of the power nozzle is burning, or the motor is burning. If it's the belt that's burning, it will be a burning rubber type of smell, but if it's the electrical motor, it will be more of an electrical smell.

If you have any further quesitons, please feel free to reply using the clarification request tool here on Fixya. I'm always more then happy to answer any follow up questions.

Dirt sensors stopped working


Sadly if a vacuum cleaner has a sensor plate that senses if a room or floor surface is dirty, it will have a sensor plate built in. Check to see if this is possible to gain entry into the Kenmore - I doubt it - but it would have to be cleaned in order for it to be used again. Usually sensors are gimicks when it comes to cleaning up dust. If the vacuum won't function because the sensor plate isn't working, it would have to be repaired by someone who deals with Kenmore.

Burning smell kenmore canister


Had a burning smell coming from the vacuum. Opened it up and noticed sparks in the motor area. Ordered a new motor from Sears and replaced it. Works great now.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I am not sure what type of vacuum, make or model # it is but if your motor is getting loud and it smells like it is burning, it could be 2 things, either you have a broken fan blade or your motor is on it’s last legs and is burning up and would be in need of a new fan and motor replacement. Please feel free t 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
