Vacuum cleaner diagnostic

I have this vacuum cleaner.

It stopped working and there was this very ugly smell of burnt electronics or something (but no smoke).

Just wondering if this is potentially a relatively easy repair (I'm quite handy) or if it's lost.

Model # would help. Is there a belt? Check for something stuck in fan, usually will have to dissemble to check.

I see you're from Europe.

That's an Electrolux Cyclonclean. I'm not sure if we have them here in the states as I can't find any service info in English.

I would definitely pull it apart and check it out. It may be worn out brushes or dust/dirt packed brushes. If it's a variable speed vacuum.... you may be smelling the variable speed control.
