Oreck vacuum cleaner stop and burn smell


sounds like hair or string or something like that is wrapped around the beater bar(the long brush under the head that brushes the carpet) keeping it from turning. The belt that drives the bar is getting hot because the beater bar is stuck.

I replaced my Bissell vacuum cleaner belt with a Bissell belt. I ordered it from them so I know it's the right one. I replaced it and the roller won't spin and the belt smells like it burning.


Beckiande485:

You will need to unplug the vacuum from the wall, lay it down so you can see the bottom of the vacuum head and remove the bottom plate (foot plate) Probably philllips head screws. pull up on the roller (called the beater bar). The beater bar will come straight up. Disconnect the belt and check the fittings at the ends of the beater bar... I'll bet that they don't spin easily (The fittings have roller bearings in them, and the roller bearings get gunked up with hair, carpet fibers and dirt). Pull the end fittings off of the roller and remove all of the hair and carpet fibers off of the end of the beater bar and the fittings and out of the bearings. Check to make sure that the roller bearings spin freely. If they do not spin freely, put some rubbing alcohol in the bearing (you can pour it onto the bearing and spin the bearing manually until it spins freely, or you can use a spray bottle with alcohol in it as I do. Once the bearing spin freely, dry them out so no alcohol remains in the bearing, then a drop or two of light machine oil (3 in 1 oil will do) in each bearing and spin the bearing again to distribute the oil. Now would be a good time to check for any clogs in the vacuum head where the hose connects, and check the hose for clogs. Reassemble the beater bar and reinstall it in the vacuum with a new belt, reinstall the foot plate.

Your machine should run like new.

Why won't brushes move on Commercial Carpet Pro Vacuum Cleaner


Luvumuch48tj:

Unplug the vacuum and lay it upside down on some newspaper. Remove the sole plate (bottom plate) with a screwdriver. Pull straight up on the brushes (called a beater bar) and remove the beater bar and belt. Remove the end caps and bearings from the ends of the beater bar (it may take a 2-grunt pull, or CAREFULLY pry the end caps and bearings from the beater bar with a screwdriver) Don't stab your hand with the screwdriver... That HURTS! Once you have the bearings and end caps off, remove the hair, carpet fibers and other gunk from the ends of the beater bar, end caps and bearings. Dribble a little rubbing alcohol on the bearings in the end caps and spin the bearings to clean them... keep dribbling alcohol in the bearings until the alcohol draining from the bearings is clear. Dry the bearings until there is no alcohol in them. Now would be a good time to check the opening in the vacuum head and the hose going into the body of the vacuum for clogs. Reinstall the bearings and end caps on the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar with a new belt in the machine. Reinstall the sole plate. Your machine should run like new.

It smells like it's burning when I vacum/what's wrong with it


Tammy May:

Unplug the machine and remove the foot plate (at the bottom of the vacuum head) and check the belt that drives the beater brush/bar. if the beater bar is hard to turn, pull the beater bar and belt out, check the inside circumference of the belt to see if the motor shaft has worn it down in one spot. If so, remove the two bearings (one at each end of the beater bar) and remove the hair, carpet fibers, strings and any other junk from the bearings and the ends of the beater bar. lubricate the bearings with oil (thin machine oil like 3 in 1 oil works best. roll the bearings with your hands until they spin freely. Now would be a good time to check the bottom of the foot plate where the dirt is vacuumed up. check the hole in the middle of the foot plate and check the hose for clogs if the hole and foot plate hole are clear, reassemble the bearings on the beater bar and install the beater bar (with a new belt) and reinstall the foot plate. The machine should run well for you.

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end


Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

Burning rubber smell when vacuum running


First of all, thank you very much for choosing FIXYA today for your online technical support needs.

Most times that burning rubber smell is the result of a worn out rubber drive belt. This belt is used to drive the rotating beater brush in the head of your vacuum. When the belt gets old and loose, the drive pulley starts to spin in place and heats up the belt instead of turning it properly.

To fix this issue, just unplug your vacuum, then disassemble the bottom head in order to access the beater brush drive belt. Remove the old belt, then replace with a new one, and then reassemble it. The old belt will probably have a part number on it so you know which type to buy, or you can just look up your vacuum model number online to find the correct replacement part for it.


Since you did not provide your vacuum's exact model number, here is a link to a short video which demonstrates the basic belt replacement procedure for a generic vacuum cleaner:

I truly hope that was helpful to you.


Good luck and take care.

The beater bar of the power head of my canister vacuum Electrolux 2100 turned off.while vacuuming,however the suction was in tact and the hose appears clear.


If you take the carpet head apart and take a look at the belt that drives the beater bar -- if it is stretched or broken, replacing it should resolve the issue. If the belt is in good shape, check the beater bar for debris that could keep it from spinning (I have long hair and it tents to jam up the carpet head of my vacuum on a regular basis).
If neither of the above solutions help, you might have an issue with a dead motor, or no power to the carpet head. Check that all of your connections are nice and tight and give it another shot. If it is still not working, I recommend bringing it to a repair shop to see if it would be cheaper to fix the part or buy a new one.

Brush roll slows/stops turning


when you removed the beater brush did you clean all the lint and threads off the ends of the brush? you can unscrew one end of the beater brush plate to clean the crap off it. Inside the beater brush are two ball bearings. Use a light machine oil to lube these two bearings. re-assemble the rod and end nut. then put your brush back in the machine and note which direction the belt needs to be installed. there'll be an arrow on the motor housing.
