Sounds like you need a new belt underneath the machine. They are easy to change. Use a paper towel when you remove the old one, the black rubber will come off on your hands and get all over everything. If you can, take close up pictures of the beater bar when you take it off. It just pulls straight off. Remember which side goes where and what the little ears look like when you pull it off - slowly so you can see how they went in. Take the old belt to the store along with the make and model of your machine. Some belts are round, some flat and some longer than others. This will end any confusion:) When you put it back together, you may have to wiggle the beater bar to get it in properly. Be patient, they rarely go in the first time. Good luck.

My new hover floormate is running very loudly and it smells like burning rubber. it seems to be working okay otherwise.


If it's new ( as in less than 30 days ) take it back where you bought it and get it repaired or replaced. If it's over 30 days take it to your nearest Hoover warranty station. It shouldn't smell like burning rubber.

MOTOR RUNS WITH NO VACUUM PRESSURE


Sounds like the belt should be replaced. It maybe turning the brush, but if you smell burning rubber, its slipping and not turning the brush with as much force as it should. Changed the belt. Check the air suction path. If the suction is reduced, something is blocking it. Check the bag (if it has one) and all filters. If the machine picks up any liquid, it will reduce the air flow through the filters and bag. Change the bag and filters. If this is an upright, you may find caked on dirt under or in the area of the brush.

My Hoover upright model 6437-900 makes a distressed sound when I turn it on and it also burns rubber. The roller turns. I've checked the thick black belt and it's intact, but has lots of 'pitting'. ...


It certainly sounds as though the belt needs replacement. (Part # 38528035) If the belt has stretched, it will slip, causing a burning rubber odor. Get a new belt and compare it to the used one.

Hi There,

When a vacuum cleaner smokes, it is usually only one of two possible problems.

It could either be that your motor burned up, or that your belts burned. The belts on this particular model are notorious for breaking, but the fact that your machine doesn't come on at all after this happened, sounds like it may be the motor.

Both of these issues have a unique smelling smoke. If the smoke smelled like an electrical burning smell, this indicates it's your motor. If the smoke smelled more like burning rubber, then it's probably your belts.

If the smoke smelled like burning rubber, here's a video that we've recorded showing step by step how to inspect, trouble shoot, and replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner. If you open it up and the belts are still in tact, then this probably is a more serious problem of the motor burning out.

. I'd be more then happy to walk you through more advanced diagnosing if this doesn't fix your problem, please just use the comment box here on the Fixya repair page.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave some feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community if the repair solution was able to fix your problem.

Thanks again,

Vacuum smells like burning rubber when on, no suction, leaving black marks on carpet


Usually when my vacuum smells like burning rubber, the belt needs to be changed and that is very easy to do. You just need to remove the the screws that hold in the rotator and put in a new belt. When the belt needs to be changed the vacuum will not pick up anything and this could make it seem like there is no suction. I hope this helps!

Rubber smell, Hoover


Well it sound like you do need a new belt because of how the smell is you might want to stop using it because the smell comes from the burning and over heated belt my solution would be to get a new belt and that should fix it if you need anything else you know whre to find me.
