Remove the top and then remove the screws from the inside top housing. You will seee the motor with a retainer hold in the motor. Remove the retainers screw(s) and pull out the motor. If the brushed look fine clean out the aurmature shafts bearings inserts. Dirt and dust will cause a bind and noise causing the motor not to operat smoothly too

I have a VAX V12 vacuum cleaner which suddenly stopped. The smell indicated Carbon Brush Problems. I contacted a service agent who told me that it was not possible to change the Carbon Brushes brushes on this model and they would need to change the Motor Unit.. To me this sounds very unlikely. Two questions please. Is it possible to change the Carbon Brushes and how do I get the cabinet apart which looks very difficult. I am well qualified electrically to do this job. Regards James Beech

Not exactly a blow gun. Convertible blower/vac - Sears Craftsman. Wire broke off ONE brush in the motor. Paid about $90 for the vac - Sears lists the WHOLE motor as one part - $88. Have requested brushes (they are provided with a lot of my 'cheap' Harbor Freight tools) but no go. Just get the canned reply - buy the whole motor. Actually got it working again... CAREFULLY drilled and tapped a 4-40 screw into the brush and soldered the lead to that... Always a way, isn't there?

Have Electrolux 1590 whole house vac, and can't see how to get brushes out. Leads so short, and don't want to break them trying to free brushes. Do they slide out of plastic housing? My eyes not real good, but it looks like the leads are part of a brass sleeve that slides into the plastic housing. It also looks like the plastic housing may be a snap lock type, but I don't see how to open it.

Samsung Quiet Storm Canister Vacuum VAC-9049 The motor will not run. Power is on to the motorized rug tool. How can I remove the upper housing to get access to the motor?

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.

Over heating? My 10 gallon 4HP shop vac has started shutting off after about 30 sec. after I turn it on to use. It smells real hot after I shut it off. I have changed the filter and the bag, which did not solve the problem. Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still rotates but it still gives off sparks and burning smell. Do i have to change the motor as well? Can you help please? Thankyou Martin

Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
