My guess is you burned out the motor. go to thehooverstore site. look for your machine. they have a parts list for just about any hoover made.

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.

Oreck XL intellashield smells hot and smoky when operating. New bag and belt and no clogs. About a year old.

If it smells like burning rubber with white smoke its the belt make sure the brush spins freely. If its a electrical burning it will smell real bad you WILL be able to tell which then its a motor issue you can remove the bottom plate 5 phillips head screws opposite the motor youll see 1 screw remove it pry the duct out and look to see if there's anything stuck in the fan if not its the motor its self

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It...

Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know it's your belt. if it does smoke, then it's probably the motor burning up.

Bunning smell.

Is it an electrical smell or a rubber type smell. If there is no smoke, it could be that the belt is slipping and causing a smell. If it is the motor, usually it would smoke, or at least quit running and making strange noises.

Burning smell and smoke

When you turn it on....is the belt turning the brushes? Something may be caught causing the brushes to stick and the belt to just grind the brush assembly.
