Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Central vac toast?

\015 Kenmore Central vac was used by kids and started smoking alot. Still good suction, but noisy and metal pieces came out of exhaust outside. Upon disassembly, found smoke was from gasket between motor/fan assembly and the canister. Metal shards loose inside suction fan portion of motor assembly. Cooling fan on motor is fine. I think metal pieces are from some casing around the fan, but I don't know how to get to the fan to check it out. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Most of these motors, the fan cover is just pressed on, but getting off isn't easy and you don't want to bent it up. Maybe using a flatblade try to knock it off from the edge of it may loosen it enough to pull it off.
