The belt may be worn or is about to break. It would be time to change the belt. This should solve the whole problem there. I believe the belt is a style 15 for this unit. your closest vacuum dealer should have one in stock.

My dyson dc07 has started to smell a bit of burning.


This will be 1 of 2 problems.

1. If its a burnt rubber smell then its the belt that has gone and will need to be replaced.
2. If its a metalic smell then your motor is burnt out.


Replacing the belt is easy enough, the motor is a lot more complicated and should be left for an expert.

Simplicity freedom vacuum has a burnt rubber smell


If the belt is continually wearing out I would think that the brush cylinder is not free to rotate. Take the belt off and ensure that the brush cylinder moves freely. If is does not, then you need to investigate why - probably something wound round it that has jammed it.

Vacuum cleans properly,however smells like rubber. Nothing is caught in belt


You need to replace the vacuum belt. Even though the belt may look fine it is probably stretched or worn and slipping on the motor shaft and that is why there is a burnt rubber smell. You can get replacement belts here:

I've had the Hoover Windtunnel for a couple years now. Its starting to smell when you vacuum. Why and how do I fix it???


I was experiencing the same problem right after changing the belt for the first time, as my Hoover is just a few months old. I am assuming what you are smelling is burnt rubber, like your belt, right? Well, if you have changed your belt recently, make sure you are using the right one. If you're not using Hoover's authentic belts and you're buying it from Wal-Mart, make sure it's the correct one, otherwise it won't work right and/or it will give off a burnt rubber smell. One other thing you could try doing first, is raising the carpet height adjustment up a notch or two. If you have it too low and your beater-bar/brush roll has to work too hard, it will start to smell also.Good luck!

Smells (burnt rubber) like it's overheating when I vacuum


I would check the brush roller and make sure it turns good and replace the belt on it . When you smell burning rubber most of the time it is the belt .
