Question about Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum
I had the same problem with the belt breaking and the roller not spinning. I read about giving the roller a couple of revolutions to seat the belt, so I put another new belt on. It still didn't spin. I realized it was the end cap that was not spinning so I took off the roller and gently pried off the end cap and there was an enormous amount of thread spun around inside of the small area. I had to keep digging it out with tweezers. Quite unbelievable. I also found that when it spits out instead of sucking up, it needs to be cleaned. Check all areas, especially the part that is round that you have to twist open. (Inside, behind the foam filter and UP).

a burning smell is usually an indication that the belt is slipping. It may just be worn out or the brush and or bearings may be bound up with hair. Remove the brush cover, some are on top other on the bottom, and look for anything wrapped around the brush. Also look at the belt where it goes around the drive spindle, if you see small black specks the belt needs to be replaced. Check the brush fro free movement, if it dosen't spin easly the bearings may need cleaning.
