I am using a Hoover carpet cleaner for the first time, and I didn't realize the water and dispenser canister was empty and used it that way for a short time. Did I do any harm? It seems to be working fine now that I put water into the canisters. I did notice a slight odor, but I am thinking it is because the machine is new? Is this odor harmful if it was from something overheating? It may have been there from the beginning and more pronounced later. I had the window open, and so it wasn't that strong, not smoking or anything like that! Is all OK since everything is working now?https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009ZJ2M7G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have an Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner. I think it has overheated, because when the cleaner operated it, smoke came out of it. I wasn't in the room at the time, so I don't know for how long she had operated it before I found out something was wrong. What is a safe way of finding out if there is damage to the machine? Thanks so much!JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Electrolux is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: It is quite new (not 2 years old), and the model is 1650 W Aquaflex Pro.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: I just want to find out if it is worth taking it to the shop. If the work is easy, my hubby can repair it.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: That's about it.
