Question about Eureka Capture Upright Vacuum Vacuum
If it smells like burning rubber, then your belt is probably slipping due to having lost tension and needs to be replaced. If it's another smell, it could be the motor burning out, but that is often accompanied by smoke. There could also be something caught around the revolving brushes in the cleaning head. Lie the vacuum on it's side and make sure you can spin the brushbar freely by hand. Also check for any debris entangled in or obstructing the brushes. This would also cause the belt to slip resulting in a smell of burning rubber. It could also damage the motor so I suggest not using the vacuum until the source of the fault has been determined.
Instructions on replacing the belt can be found in your user manual. If you don't have one or need further instruction on how to do this, please post back for further assistance.
