You should not run item incase of fire until you have unit checked out. The cost of an appliance engineer is cheaper than replacing people and home should a fire start, remember, though switched off, if there is a faulty motor which may be causing the burning smell, it has been know to smolder and igninte in the cupboard.

Play safe, if you are not a DIYer let the professionals repair or pi passed its sell buy date replace, and have a retirement party for the retiring faithful ******!!

Vax v-091 burning smell and clunking noise


Is there something stuck inside, underneath, being turned along with the motor? burning smell usually means something got caught and the belt snapped. Not expensive and don't know if it's an easy DYI. Shouldn't cost too much to have it repaired or you can google the brand and model and the word belt, see what you find.

The motor in the Kenmore canister started smelling like wire burning and then made terrible noise. I ordered the exact replacement motor and swapped them. Installed the same way the original came out, ran...


Hi,

Actually there not supposed to burn up. I have read some reviews on that model Kenmore and it seems it is plagued by electrical problems.

I would definitely contact Sears customer service.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Burning smell from motor


Hi,
Check your filter and also check that nothing got pulled into the motor...otherwise the motor is burning up and will need to be replaced... probably cheaper to replace the whole vacuum..

Wet vac motor making noise and smells like burning


Hi I would suggest that the burning smell and the noise will mean that the motor is burnt out. You can get them pretty cheaply from the internet and they are quite easy to fit.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:
