The motor may be dirty and needs cleaning. Your belt drive may be faulty. The fan may be loose or damaged. Parts in the motor may be wearing out.
If you`re looking for a quiet bagless vacuum, our bagless ProSilence models are engineered for peace and quiet. They deliver powerful performance to thoroughly clean all floors, and emit low noise thanks to the built-in SilenceSound system.
The main reason why a vacuum may be emitting a smell of burning rubber is a broken belt or an object is suck. Excess hair or fur caught around the roller brush can also cause this issue. Turn off your vacuum and let it cool before doing anything.

.When I dismanteld each of the units, some beater bars only had hairline cracks and and others were falling apart. I first purchased beater bars from eBay that were very cheaply made and broke within one or two weeks. The beater bars I got from England have been going strong in a commercial business for over a year now. That’s equivalent to 5 years use in a residence.
.Defective beater bars are more frequent than most people realize. I’d lay odds that is your problem but you will never know until the beater bar is removed and closely inspected. Some fractures of the plastic can be hard to see.
.Hope this helps.

.I replaced the belt on

.I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?
.I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
.The Royal Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum has just bushings in the ends of the brushroll and not bearings and once the bushings are bad I suggest that you replace the brushroll in the vacuum and put a new belt on the vacuum as well. There is no way to repair the bushing s in order to it to work properly. The suggested belt change is every 4 to 6 months and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. Suggest looking at a local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

.If you have replaced the clutch already, then this can really only be one other problem, and that is the roller brush. If the roller brush’s bearing have locked up, and the brush is no longer spinning, this is going to cause the clutch to make that horrible grinding noise, and a lot of people incorrectly think automatically that the clutch needs to be replaced.
.Here’s a very easy way that you can test the roller brush on your Dyson to see if it may have gone bad. In 10 years of fixing and selling vacuum cleaners, I have never seen such a cheap roller brush that’s in the Dyson DC07 models with clutches, unfortunately this is notorious problem we see on this particular model.
.Ok, so to test out the brush, make sure the vacuum is unplugged, and turn it upside down. Remove the 3 plastic screws on the bottom plate, and remove the bottom plate to expose the brush completely.
.You may then simply pull upwards on the roller brush, and take the brush out of the belt that is wrapped around it. After the brush has been completely removed from the vacuum cleaner, hold the brush with only your pointer fingers in each hand, and only put your pointer fingers on the outside of the bearing caps on each side of the roller brush.
.While holding only the bearing caps with your fingers, try to spin the brush with your thumbs. The brush should spin freely in your fingers, and you should get a good 5 or 6 rotations with each spin.
.If the brush doesn’t spin, then your roller brush has gone bad. Espcecially with home that have long haired pets, or females, the hair gets between the bearing cap and the bearing inside and causes the plastic caps that are covering the bearings to heat up, ultimately causing the bearing caps to melt, and finally the bearings sieze, and the brush will no longer spin freely which is why the clutch makes that awful noise.
.Good news is that the roller brush is not as expensive or as difficult to replace as the clutch was. You may purchase the DC07 roller brush here;

.If your roller brush does spin, then I’m baffled as to what could be causing the clutch to make noise, but I’d like to try and help you figure this out.
