Question about Eureka Vacuums
If by "suction" you mean it's not picking up dirt and debris on carpet, odds are your belt needs replacement, and the belt has burned, causing the burning smell. Ensure that your brushroll spins free, and replace the belt. (Belts should be replaced in any vacuum with a rubber belt every 3-6 months, regardless of use.)
If you mean that you are not having any airflow at the end of the hose, you most likely have a clog in the main hose and the burning smell is caused by your motor overheating. Ensure that there is nothing blocking the hoses.
If you have suction in the hose, and your brushroll is turning, there may be a clog in the head area behind the brushroll. Look in the hose that your wand plugs into, and ensure that it is also clear.
