Halo main suction motor will not come on
\015 Suction motor will not come on, tested with cover off????\015
Used my Steam Vac twice and now there is no suction where the unit should be picking up the water layed down from the sprayer. I've readjusted the collection tank, took the lid off and made sure the side clips were snug and cliped against the tank, but still no suction. I don't hear any unusual noises, the handle lays down, water spits out, it just has lost suction. Any suggestions? With Appreciation, -kb

I have a Rainbow E2 series, 23, for about 3 years. It has now a different and very aloud sound coming fron around the motor and also I feel it is not suctioning with the same power. If I close the hose like closing totally the suction entrance, the sound comes normally. I will appreciate if some one can tell me what to do, becouse there is not a Dealer in my Contry any more. Thank You. Pierre Chabaneix - Lima-Peru [email protected]
Hi there, Pierre!\015\012Sorry, but I think this is bad news. From your description, I suspect that a motor bearing has failed. The only way to fix it is to replace the motor, and without a dealer in your country, that could be a big problem.\015\012 ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have a Nutone CV-450. When the unit is turned on the motor makes a high pitched whining sound. The suction seems like it is reduced and there is a burning rubber smell coming from the unit. Suction at the unit itself is also reduced. Any ideas about the cause of the problem and the solution?

My bissell powersteamer model 1695 does not spray enough water out. Hardly anything will come out of the handheld attachment either, just a few drips. With the floor unit, it appears the only water coming out is a result of gravity when the control is squeezed. Nothing appears to be plugged up with debrie or deposits. There does not appear to be any kind of drive belt for the pump as it seems to operate off the main vacuum motor. Any ideas?

My built-in Electrolux vac is about 10 years old and I want to clean and oil the main suction motor. At which points do I oil the motor and will 3-in-one oil work or is there a special lubricant. John

I have a CT600 power brush that would not power up. Thinking the motor was bad in it, I replaced it with a new CT700 power brush, I am still experiencing the same problem the power brush itself does not seem to be getting electic power, but the Vacuum unit does come on with suction.
First try connecting the power nozzle directly to the hose. If it works, the problem is due to a broken wire or faulty connection in the wands. At least one wand will need to be replaced.\015\012My guess is it's probably due to a broken or di ... Broan-NuTone VX550 Bagged Central System Vacuum

Hi. We have a Riccar N2100 vacuum cleaner, which has served us well for many, many years. I'd like to attempt a repair on this unit, and looking for advice and/or a parts diagram to proceed. The unit makes a groaning sound when shut off. The sound tapers off in pitch as the motor and beater bar come to a stop. The sound only happens when the vacuum cleaner is turned off in the normal upright position. The sound does not happen when the lower unit and main housing are both laying flat. I took

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John
It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
Aquavac runs for short time then cuts out blowing the RCD . Have rewired mains cable thinking a broken or loose wire... still same problem. Have also noticed that a lot of sparks etc coming from the motor brushes. Vac approx 10-15yrs old.Aquavac is model 6310B
Makes a high pitched noise when turned on and suction is not as good as when new. How do you break it down to check the motor? I suspect that is where the noise is coming from.
