Question about Vacuums
My vacuum smell burnt... I thought at first it was because the belt needed replacement so I bought a new one and replaced it but when I vacuum I can still smell burnt and notice smoke coming out of it. So, I paid close attention where its coming from and I notice that it is not coming from the same side where the belt is located but on the opposite side which look like where you switch on and off.
I'm on a limited income and can't afford a new vacuum or get it fix so I'm hoping someone can tell me how to fix it. I'm fast learner if someone can walk me through it would appreciate it. Thanks.
take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock. It may be lose or broken.

take the belt off again you will see burnt rubber from the old belt stuck to the motor shaft.you can take a fine piece of emery cloth and clean the shaft down to its polished finish.always good to do this after each belt.check the brush roller and see if there are any signsd of plastic melted.make sure it turns freely if not the brush roller might be siezing uo on youhave you cleaned the hepa filter?does it smell like wires burning or rubber.with it unlugged take it apart to the motor and take a fine iece of emery cloth and go over the motor armature .then try it again.you can take all the filters out and run it without the filters.that will help you narrow it down.please leave feedback
