Question about Bissell Healthy Home HEPA Bagless Upright Vacuum - Metallic Blue
When I turn on the vacuum, it starts to smell like something is burning.
Ok...Check the brush roll is free not sticky..Next is the belt okay, not jamming on the brush roll making the burning smell...You could take off the roll and run motor on its own ..finding out if its the motor..

SOURCE: belt is burning?
is the brush turning? remove any debris that is keeping it from rotating. It does sound like the belt is burning because the motor is trying to turn it and the brush/sweeper is jammed.

What does it smell like? If it smells like burnt anything-it could be that the fan is broken and lodged in the motor. You can see if the fan is good just by looking into it.

The smell is from the stretch belt. If It has been two years I'm sure you need to change the belt, that belt should be changed at least every 6 months. You can get the belt for this model here:
