Hello, if there is a burning smell coming from your device the first thing you should do is unplug it immediately. Next, you should check to see if you picked up any lit embers such as a cigarette. If that is not the case, then wait a few minutes for the vacuum to cool down before trying to operate again. Sometimes if the motor is overworked it will heat the power cable and cause a burning smell. If you have done these and the problem still persists then there may be a jam in the drive belt that requires replacement. If you think this may be the problem, you may need to replace your drive belt.
