SOURCE: smells like the motor is burning. observing

If you're observing sparks, then yes, just get a new one. With the low prices of good vaccuums its not worth starting a fire with your vaccuum. If it just smells like the motor is burning, check the belt and make sure its rotating freely and if you have an attachment, make sure the brush on the vaccuum is not being stopped while using the attachment. However, if you are seeing sparks,,,, definately time to junk it

When its in use there is a burning odor


If it is a rubber smell, the belt is slipping and should be repalced. If the smell is a sharp electrical burning odor, the motor brushes are sparking and the motor may be damaged.

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still...


Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor.

Motor is making a knocking noise with a burning smell and sparks can be seen when switching on


Sounds like ur FiLTER is CLOGED!

Air was blocked going in the motor thats why ur smeling smething burning, means ur motor is starting to overheat!

Spark in the motor is NORMAL when the CARBON BRUSHES is touching the ARMATURE!

My suggestion is to CLEAN & WASH the filter or buy a NEW one!

Hope that cleans evrything on ur probs!

Vacuumed water - won't work


it sounds like the motor overload is cutting out.
it should automatically reset in time.
  • try removing the motor from the vacuum.
  • jump the motor. (power directly to the motor leads) be careful doing this! because once you plug it the motor will jump...keep your fingers from moving parts.
  • With the motor running, you will want to inspect the commutator -(where the carbon brushes push against)
  • if a blue spark is large and wrapping around the commutator then you will need to replace the brushes to begin with...in worse cases the armatures commutator would have to be cleaned with emery paper.... or armature should be replace. i think vacuum motors sell as a assembly...depending on what type of vacuum you have it might be better just buying a new one.

The motor makes a weird sound and starts to heat and smell like something is burning


If the motor sounds scratchy and is making a burning smell, or sparking you will need to replace the motor or the entire vac. Carbon brushes will rarely fix this as it is a high RPM motor

Burning smell kenmore canister


Had a burning smell coming from the vacuum. Opened it up and noticed sparks in the motor area. Ordered a new motor from Sears and replaced it. Works great now.
