These things are VERY sensitive to the roller being perfectly free of any haor or stuff. Clean the roller completely, put a new belt on, and make sure it is all turning perfectly before you plug it in...

Did you check the brush roll, if one of the ends is melted together and won't turn, then the belt will just slip and overheat.

My hoover steam vac is making a horrible noise and smells like its burning


Something may have jammed the brush roller, preventing rotation. This causes the motor shaft to rotate in one spot on the belt, causing the burning rubber smell. Eventually, the belt will break. You need to find what caused the jam and remove it. It would be a good idea to replace the belt as a burned belt is unlikely to last much longer.

ROLLER WILL NOT MOVE


Because the brush roller is not rotating, the motor shaft is spinning in one spot on the belt and eventually will burn the belt and cause it to break. You need to remove the brush roller and its end caps to remove pet hair or other matter. You may have to replace the burned belt to get things working right again.

Replace the Roller Brush. Sounds like bearing in it is locking up and the the belt is slipping and not turning the Roller Brush as it has a locked up bearing. You will need to go ahead and get a replacement belt just in case you have stretched the older belt to a bigger size. I had this same experience with a Hoover and it solved my problems of "rubber burnt smell".

GREEN LIGHT AND MOTOR


The green light is an indicator that your brush is rolling smoothly. If it starts to flicker and you smell something that smells like rubber burning you need to do a couple things; one is remove the roller and clean off all of the hair, string, etc. Next you want to replace your belt. Just because the roller isn't turning doesn't mean the motor and the belt aren't either. If your roller gets jammed your belt will continue to spin and it will eventually wear down in one spot and break. Replace the belt, clean the roller and your should be fine.

I have the G series Kirby silver vacuum, I was vacuuming and started to smell some burning. Looked down and my green light was off also. What could it be? PLS HELP


Your belt is burning and will eventually wear down and break. The green light comes from copper brushes on your roller creating an electrical current that lights the little green light. As long as the roller is turning, the light will stay on. There may be something jamming the roller (hair, string, paper, etc). Clean the roller off and replace your belt. If you don't replace the belt it will break soon enough. Once you start smelling the "rubber burning" smell it's and indication that your belt has deteriorated at some point and has a weak spot in it. Clean the roller and replace the belt and it should be fine.

Motor runs, brush won't turn, burning rubber smell


Easy to fix. The burning rubber smell is hair in the roller against the belt! Congrats, you have a healthy vacuum, you are lucky! Unplug the vacuum, remove the screws that cover the belt and roller brush. If you are nervous, take pictures with a cell phone or digital camera as you go for re-assembly. ok, pull the long roller out of it's slot and out of the vacuum. cut all hair off the roller and carefully move the belt from side to side to do the same. If the belt slips off, it slips back on easily. If the area is too tight for fingers guide it back on with any long thin wooden object. You can squeeze the belt to narrow it and slide it back over the thin metal rod that spins it from the motor. Slide the roller through the belt and back into it's slots. If it won't slide back on, turn it a quarter turn. Repeat till it does slide back into place. Put the face plate back on-tighten screws, flip it over, plug itr in and it should work!

Vacuum Belt keep breaking


When your first belt burnt, the burnt plastics goes into the roller ends and then it dries off causing your roller to not turn or put more pressure on your belt. Until you clean that you will continue burning your belts soon after you put them in. You need to add a little bit of WD40 or any other type of lubricant after you remove the tar from the roller.

better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time

The motor is running, the roller brush spinning rubber smell


Sounds like the main suction pipe is blocked.
Unplug, and in good light - see if you can see any obstructions in the pipe from the prush area to the bag (in a bagless vacuum) or to the fan in a bag model.

As mention


a little always make sure your filters are clean.but the biggest problem will be with the belt and the brush roller.if it smells like wires burning then its probably the motor .reach up under the front where the roller is but unplug first and see if you can turn the roller by hand.if it turns real freely then the belt is bad.there should be a little drag o the roller when you turn it. i would take the bottom open depending on what kind of vacuum you have and take the brush roller out and clean it real good.holding the brrush try turning the ends and see if they turn easy,if not there is probably carpet strands or hear wrapped around it in the inside of the ends,if you can't turn the roller you need to buy a new roller.if its just the belt replace the belt but before you do clean the motor shaft usually when a belt goes bad there is burnt rubber still on the shaft ,if you don't clean the shaft your new belt will not last long
