Guide :Vacuums : U5144900 / U5146900 / U5147900 Tempo Bagged Upright Vacuum
Overheating vacuum? My Hoover U5134-980 has worked fine for the past year. Lately, however, it has smelled like it is overheating to the point where I can no longer vacuum because of the smell. I opened it up and the belt had melted and become disfigured because the metal part that it attaches to became so hot. I opened it up further and found a large amount of lint on the filter near the light bulb and removed that. I also replaced the belt. Neither of these things has helped. It seems to work okay, but the smell is really awful and seems dangerous. Any ideas?
