Looking for Replacement Motor for Bosch Ultra 1450W Canister Vacuum
\015 It appears the mote on this vacuum has blown out the bearings - it shakes and rattles a lot and there were BB-sized ball bearings inside the canister housing the motor. I've been looking online for somewhere Imight get a replacement motor, or compatible model, without any luck so far.\015\012\015\012Can I confirmany way that the bearings are the problem.If so,is this repairable itself?\015\012If not repairable, is there a source for a replacement motor?\015\012If I cannotget a Bosch motor, isit likely I could fit it with a compatible motor from another manufacturer, and, if so, which one?\015
If you are finding BB's. then the bearings are bad. You could pull the motor and take it to a place that rebuilds motors to see about replacing the bearings. If it is a Lamb or amtec motor, there is a number stamped on it, you can match up another motor with that number. Go to a place that sells Vacuum repair parts and they maybe able to get you a new motor.

I have a Eureka 4870GZ. It turns on, but the brush roller doesn't move. The belt looks fine. I do have an extra belt and would try replacing the old belt, but I can't get the old one off the motor shaft or the new one on. I called Eureka customer service. The lady said there's supposed to be a small space between the motor shaft and the outside edge of the vacuum where I can slip the old belt off and the new one on. I don't see it. It looks like the motor shaft goes into a recessed place in the

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the pins looks like it broke off. There are only three pins remaining. I assume there should be four pins as there are four holes. Is this the problem and is it fixable? The vacuum is from 2002 so I am not sure a replacement part is even available and at what price. Thank you. Susan susan.eng@
Hi Susan, if the pin has broken off you can do one of two things, first, would be to find a local vacuum repair shop and take it there for them to look at. they may be able to look at the hose and fix it for you pretty cheaply. what ... Kenmore Progressive 20912 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have any easy-flo built-in vacuum. I recently had the bearings on the motor, top and bottom replaced. I put the vacuum back together and it mow has low suction power. There is plenty of suction on the side of the canister where the rigid tubing meets the canister body but little suction at the wall plates. Any ideas? Roger
There is either a blockage or a pipe is open somewhere. You should check the system at the wall valve without the hose to determine if the pipes are blocked or if perhaps the hose is plugged. If one of the wall valves is damaged or open, this will af ... Vacuums
My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions
Many vacuums have internal thermal switches that need to cool to allow the vac to operate. After 30 minutes, check all 3 air filters and try again.\012Gary ... Bosch BSG71310UC Bagged Canister Vacuum
Recently my central vac system started making a louder than usual and laboured sound when in uise, enough so that I took note and inspected the canister and motor while running. The motor was trowing off blue sparks and looked like it could 'POP' at any moment. I will not risk using it until I know what the problem is and how to repair it. My assumption is the motor needs to be replaced. The system came with the resale house I bought 3 yrs ago but I do not know the age of the system itself.
Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n
