My engine smells like burning rubber and the smell is stronger by my alt. Belt, I have looked at the pulleys to make sure none of them are froze up but they all seem to be fine. What are some other things I should check? What are a few possible problems this could be?

Loose belt, bad belt or one of the pulleys is tight and barely turning

Could be a bad harmonic damper as well.
