The burning rubber smell is usually the belt. Be careful not to use it on your carpet as the rubber belt can get hot and liquify and really mess up your carpet (if you have one). Here's a link to some instructions for replacing the belt.

Making loud high pitched noise and no suction. Belt seems fine


Sounds like something is clogged/blocking the intake hose. Pull off your bin & see if you can feel/see anything blocking that hose that everything goes thru.

My vacuum makes a really loud noise when I turn it on. It was working and now it smells like something is burning. I check the belt- it looks ok.


The belt may look okay but it still can be stretched or worn and can be slipping on the motor shaft and thats why you have the burning smell. I would try changing the belt. Here is a link to the manual and a link to the belt you need:

Makes too much noise {high pitchs] like the motoris spinning the belt to fast.


That noise usually means that the belt is worn or stretched and its slipping on the motor shaft. Replacing the belt is easy to do and you can get the belts for this model here:

Bissell lift off, brush won't move smell burning rubber belt fine


OK - so your brush roller is jammed. And yes, the belt is melting! Unplug the machine, remove the belt (you will need another new one anyway) then see if you can turn the roller by hand. If it turns freely without you doing anything else, then you may have put the new belt in incorrectly. However, you will probably find you can't turn it, or it's hard work (it should rotate freely). Remove the roller and check the bearings - there may well be something tangled up at one end of the roller. If you can get the roller rotating freely, all should be well.
Good luck

If you have a rubber smell, then the belt is slipping, does the brush roll turn freely while holding the ends? If not then replace it, part #2036619, if it is ok, then the belt has strectched and is slipping under load, part # 2106679, Style 8.
