Question about Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
My vacuum when used on the carpet makes a burnt smell. And when I use on the floor no smell. What could it be? I've cleaned all the rollers and changed filters and bags. THanks in advance.
My guess would be a slightly loose belt - tight enough to spin the roller on a hard floor, but loose enough to slip (then get hot and stink) when the roller is having to work against the pile of a carpet. Worth buying and fitting a new belt without pausing to investigate further, simply because they're so cheap and you'll have to replace it sooner or later anyway. A.
