Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Bosch canister motor gets very hot, cuts off and will not come back on for at least 30 minutes


Answers :

Hi,

As most devices of this nature, there could be several reasons for the heating up. Incidentally, the cutting off is a feature of the thermal protection and would of course come back soon as it has cool down.

Possibilities are:
1. clog, blockage, kinks in the intake (hose);
2. accumulated dirt/dust, clog in the filter;
3. seized bearings or lubrication has dried out;
4. partial short in the windings.

Repair would require:
1 & 2 cleaning and verifying no clogs, kinks or blockage. The filter may require replacement;
3. replacement of bearings or re application of appropriate lubricant;
4. motor replacement (or if available rewinding). Pls consider the cost of repair and down time. In most instances, cost of motor replacement/rewinding would not justify any repairs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi,
It's work for a very much! Motor needs to be replaced! Motor rotor is in the end of his life! You can install some strong fan to keep him cool but that's not good solution it's only a suggestion!
Good luck

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet. It just shut down and wouldn't come back on. 10 minutes or so later it came back on but now it's got no sucking power. I figure I torched the motor. Good guess? What are my options--I'm out in the middle of no where but can get it to a repair shop 250 miles away. Is it worth trying to salvage or am I going to pay as much to get it f

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther

Clogged hose A makeup brush (about 3.5 inches long) was sucked up through the vacuum hose. It won't come back through the same way it came in because the bristles in the brush are expanded.

Took my Miele Solaris canister vac in for repair as it wouldn't turn on. The repairman said to come back the next day for the estimate.
