Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My son and I are trying to build a small motor for a school project. we have a 6volt battery 2 wires that we are hooking up to a spool of wire. We have two aposing magnets on each side of the spool of wire. the spool of wire is on a shaft and should turn when we touch it with the 2 wires from the battery. It just does not work. What are we missing here? Thankyou

Magnets. If you've ever seen the inside of an electric motor, you will see the armature, the part with the copper wire windings, is suspended in a metal case with magnets glued to the inside. I believe the magnets, one on each side of the case, are of opposite polarity of the armature. When electricity is applied to the copper windings it causes a magnetic field where one magnet pulls or attracts, and the other repels or pushes, causing the motor to spin. At least that's my limited understanding of the electric motor.

The powerhead will turn until you touch it down on the carpet then the belt just spins (burning rubber smell). Is there supposed to be a fitting around the metal shaft opposite the powerhead or does the belt ride on the metal shaft?

Kenmore canister model 116.25513506 wont turn on. when handle switch is turned to floor. vac motor does not turn on. When switch is turned to carpet, floor nozzle works but vac motor does not. I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs. Thinking it must be the circuit board, how do I bypass it or test it?

HI, my motorized brush barely turns.It makes a hot rubber smell. I took apart and noticed the spindle the belt turns on discolored from heat. Cleaned it, but still no turning of the brush.The vac is a hoover wind tunnel. As it moved accidentally touched the belt/ spindle and burned my hand a little. Very hot in area. Bright spark from motor noted. Was careful not to touch that part!


That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need: ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum

The digital readout on my Redmon brand digital small animal pet scale will not "zero out." When turned on, the weight displays a weight from the memory, which is what the scale should do, but it's then supposed to zero out so you can weigh the animal. I've put new batteries in, and also taken them for a while (up to an hour), then replaced the batteries, and turned the scale on. This has not worked. Any ideas?

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5

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

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

The battery will not charge in the sweeper. I can remove the battery and wire it to the power supply for charging and it will charge up and run the sweeper. So the power supply and the battery are both good. Obviously there is a circuit failure in the on board charging control. Anyone know a fix or a likely faulty component? I had a shark handheld about 8 years ago and it developed the same problem. I examined the little circuit board inside but saw no visible indications that would isolate t

My Dyson DC 24's beater bar switch didn't actuate and the beater bar didn't turn. When I brought it to a certified serviceman he told me that a wire interferred with the switch and all he had to do was move the wire out of the way of the switch. At the time the machine was under warrantee and it didn't cost me anything. Now however, the machine is out of warrantee and the problem has returned. Does anyone know how to access the switch and move the wire out of the way?
