There should be a definite audible click when you press down on the switch. Most switches also latch so that there is a little play in the foot switch when it is on.

Possible problems included - blown fuse in the plug, damaged cord, failed starter capacitor.

It may be an idea to take it to a local vacuum repair store and get an estimate for repair.

If you are using the correct shampoo then the tank my need to be replaced. They will clog if tank wasn't cleaned after last used. Check that the dial is open and both filters are in place , add water and shampoo and test without the hose connected . If you still have no suds coming out then just order a new tank.

The burnt rubber smell tells me your belt is slipping. Could be your head is set too low to the floor and causing too much pressure or your belt could be wore out. Ours did that and I had to purchase a new belt and reset the head off the floor a little bit.
