SOURCE: belt is burning?
is the brush turning? remove any debris that is keeping it from rotating. It does sound like the belt is burning because the motor is trying to turn it and the brush/sweeper is jammed.

ok, i guess it is the motor then because i checked the brush and it turns and the belt seems to be okay now, just loud motor.
thanks for the help!

SOURCE: belts breaking frequently
I had the same problem. Broke 2 belts before I got online and noticed this site! What I found was, the roller ends were not turning freely. I had cleaned the hair (nasty) off the roller, but the ends were still not able to spin around without some force.
What I did was, removed the roller and on the 2 ends there are 2 black plastic caps which fit over the bearing, I removed the plastic caps and put a little WD-40 on the bearing, or any industrial lubricant, even new motor oil will work. After putting on the WD-40, I spun the roller end around a few times and the WD-40 lubricated the bearings and Voila! The roller end spun freely!! I put the black caps back onto the bearings on both sides, reinstalled a new belt, it's been working great since.
It saves the cost of a new roller.

SOURCE: Belts keep breaking
Check the brush roll ends to see if they have melted or frozen. They should turn freely, part #361869-1. Make sure the belt isn't being pinched somewhere.

It sounds like the brushroll has caused your belt problem and will be the cause of your burning smell as well. What commonly occurs is that carpet fiber,hair,string, thread,etc got wound around the brushroll and some will get caught in the end caps which is where the bearings are.The end caps need to be removed and cleaned so that the bearings can allow the brush to rotate freely.Check that there is no melting of the end caps or the base plate where the end caps fit into the machine._Good Luck
