Question about Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum
I vaccumed over my door mat and one of the strings got wrapped up,I pulled it out and theres no suction from the bottom only from the hose and it smelled burnt so I turned it off
You will need to replace the belt. You should replace it every 3-6 months regardless, but if you ever notice it not picking up very well, it's usually because your belt is broken or stretched. The burning smell you're noticing is the belt melting because the mat wouldn't allow the brushroll to turn.
Depending on the model you will either have to remove two screws from the top of the hood and lift the hood off, or remove a few screws from the bottom and remove the baseplate.
All you'll have to do once it's open is to put the belt around the motor pulley, (the metal part sticking out of the motor,) and then around the brushroll, and pull the brushroll into its original position, ensuring that the belt isn't pinched.
