Hoover Elite Rewind Vacuum, smells like a burning motor and is not sucking anymore! Help!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. If the motor has a burning smell, it could be the belt but in most cases it would be the motor and that would be in need of replacement. You can try to replace it yourself but there would not a warranty for self installation. If you have an authorized vacuum cleaner dealer do the install then it would be warranted for one year. You can check with the Hoover manufacturer if you like. If you have further questions please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, or contact the Hoover website and or the cust serv phone # @ Hoover listed below. 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.

How to fix no suction?


Be sure the motor runs then unplug the unit and thoroughly check the suction side to be sure it is not plugged with some obstruction. Here are some links that may help:

Motor shut off


Try it half an hour later, does it run? If so it's overheating. Change your filters and empty the cup.
If it does not run it's likely a problem with the cord rewind. Some of those units had a recall on the cord rewind. To find out for sure find a local hoover service center and take it in for repair many times at no cost.

It's likely something got into the fan, is stuck there, is preventing the fan from turning, and so prevents the motor running. There's a good possibility the motor burned out because of this. If there's a strong smell of burning metal, this is probably the case.
The only way to be sure is to take it to the shop.

My hoover elite rewind is making a louder noise and I can smell something burning when I use it. I have replaced the belt but this did not help.


the smell is either the motor or the belt, if motor hope it is under warranty, if belt make sure brush roll spins freely and replace belt, if brush roll not spin freely replace it first

Burned smell


If the motor slowed down this would indicate a bad motor. not cost effective on this model to replace unless under warranty. it is not uncommon these days to see a motor go bad every now and then.

What are the first 4 digits of your serial number? this would be the month and year of mfr. even without a receipt, a warranty service shop should be able to assist you.

I have the Hoover Deluxe Elite Rewind with the 24 ft cord reel. I can't seem to find the instructions or model # exactly for it. The vacuum is just over a month old but when I turn it on now it's not sucking at the bottom and the hose and everything else appears to be attached so I don't know why it's not working.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You Hoover Deluxe Elite Rewind sound like it is still under the factory warranty of one year and I would not attempt to fix it yourself because you will void the warranty. Suggest bringing it to a authorized Hoover Factory Dealer for the cordwinder, as far as it not sucking it sounds to me that you have a clog of some sort and that is not covered under the factory warranty, but does not cost much to get it unclogged. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months, and to keep the brushroll clean and spinning freely. If you have further questions feel free to contact your local vac dealer. 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.
