if you unscrew a bit on the base that allows you to take off the brush, you will see a black plastic strip with very small holes in it. These are where your shampoo comes out of. Take a needle and re-pierce these holes and it should work again. I have just sorted mine out. good luck .

most vacuums use a belt that runs from the motor to the front brush. and when the brush gets jammed the motor continues to run and burns the belt (probably what you smelled).
you'll have to turn it over and remove the base plate and replace the belt.
use the old belt to find a match
hope this helps.....jay
