My dyson dc28 brush stopped turning after a pop and smoked. Smelled like burnt plastic. The attachment hose still has suction and is working fine. What happened?


Hiya.

When an object gets under the machine it can
cause the brushbar to suddenly jam. The belt between the motir
and the brushbar however is forced to keep turning
causing the rubber belt to burn an then break.

Tip

Vacuum Brush Bar Not Spinning


" My vacuum brush is not spinning". OR
" My vacuum brush is spinning but not picking up".
" My dirt sensor doesn't work, continually blinks".

These three things are very common in vacuum cleaners and they are nothing serious. There is a rubber belt that drives the Brush Bar.You simply need to replace the belt.

* If the Brush Bar is not spinning, then you know that the belt is broken.
* If the Brush Bar is spinning but not picking up anything, then the belt is stretched to the point where it is now spinning on the Brush Bar. When this is the case, you may smell the belt burning and you may even see a little smoke.
* And, if the you have a dirt sensor on you vacuum and it continually blinks, this is due to a bad belt as well.

Whatever the case, the belt must be replaced. Belts are very easy to replace. In most vacuums, you turn the vacuum over and pop off the bottom to access the belt. In some other vacuums, there will be a little door/cover that pops off on the top side of the vacuum; allowing access that way.

You can pick a belt up at your large department stores or Do-It-Yourself Centers. These stores usually only carry specific brands, depending on each store you search. You may want to call around first. The belts are very reasonably priced for the most part.

Or, if you would rather shop on line, here is a link to belts. Just look up the Make and Model # of your vacuum and order.

Good Luck!

Red reser button pops out after a few seconds, The brush is clear of threads.


Remove the belt from the motor to brush and then try. If the reset pops then the motor unit is faulty. If it doesn't pop off then the brush assembly is jambed or hard to turn, sometimes caused by threads in the roller endcaps

Dirt Devil easy lite vacuum makes pop or a thunk and then the suction is bad the clog lite does not come on I know it works


Hi there! Sounds like that noise may have been your belt popping or breaking. Try checking the belt on the vacuum. If it has broken, replace with a Dirt Devil style 15 belt. Below is a link where you may go to purchase the belt if needed. Thanks!

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear...


It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.

How to change belt on Eureka maxima 4700a


hey i had the same problem with mine, (standing over it and looking straight down) there should be two screws on the top of the yellow cover, one on each side, take those out and the yellow cover should easliy pop off. if the white ink is off the belt or the belt isnt tight than replace, once off just pop the wheel brush (which has the belt around it) up out of its socket and take off of the belt from the wheel brush and motor's metal pole, then put on the new one just like the old one was. let me know how it works out, redsox_belcher@yahoo.com

Hoover fusion plus cyclonic upright vacuum


While I'm having a different problem, the problem you guys are experiencing can easily be fixed by cleaning the two internal filters. My vacuum did the same thing, just stopped running mid-stream. Remove the main filter cup. Look inside the cavity of the vacuum and you'll see a grey bar at the bottom of the cavity, pull this up and you'll find the first of two washable filters. Just rinse it under warm water squeezing as you rinse until the water runs clear. The roll the filter in a few paper towels or towel and unroll, reroll until completely dry - should only take a few minutes. Then, look in the same cavity except up top there is another filter which seems to be hidden. The back wall of the inside cavity will guide you to these filters as well. You will be amazed by the difference cleaning these will make in the suction power of your vacuum. Also, if you remove the belt cover and clean out the hose in this area it will improve suction as well. Hope this helps. Now, if I could just get the darn belt back on mine. First belt smoked and popped. Bought replacement belt, smoked and popped within seconds... HELP!!!

Hoover self-propelled windtunnel belt pops off


The correct belt is a 38528035. If the belt does not have this number printed on it, it is a generic belt and probably the wrong one. The pulley on the transmission is "convex" because this pulley design keeps the belt running in the middle. (a belt will always try to "climb up a hill") If the motor shaft and the pulley are not aligned properly, the belt will constantly throw off. This can be a result of a bad motor mount (located inside the motor compartment.) The motor shaft end has a rubber cover that absorbs vibration and keeps the motor positioned squarely. The handle could also be loose on the pivot. It is held down by two metal clamps that screw securely to the bottom, holding the handle on to the base and allowing for the handle to pivot backwards. This problem can be difficult to diagnose and I have had many in my shop for repair. It takes a seasoned and experienced repairman to find a solution to this problem, in most cases. The disadvantage I have here is that I cannot see your machines to inspect all the various things that effect the belt alignment. I hope that some of this information will help.
