Having problems with your Vacuums ?

How can I fix my Lasko E20739 tower fan, when the motor stops running?


Answers :

That fan has an electronic (computerized) control board which sometimes malfunctions. Nothing new there, right?

The problem is that the cost of the repair can excede the price of a brand new replacement, with a warranty to boot.

You may take it to a service depot and get it checked out, provided you get an estimate and this is done free of charge.
I had that problem with 2 fans of that model. I removed the fan cover and vacuumed out dust, pet hair and then loosened the fan lower drive attachment screw, and the top cover and upper bushing mount. Lifting gently upward while pulling on the fan lower axle from the top, the fan cylinder can be slid back and removed. This exposes the motor drive spindle. After cleaning the spindle area, I supported the assembly and temporarily plugged the unit in and confirmed that the motor was stuck and would turn if assisted. The manual Control unit worked and the remote as well. After cleaning and treatment with light penetrant followed by several drops of lubricant the unit worked fine with no resistance to manual rotation and fan coasted easily when assembled and powered on and off. It may not be a permanent fix but shows quick responses to speed changes and a forceful air flow now. Good luck!

DT 1300 As I am vacuuming the motor seems to fade in and out and sometimes stops running for a few seconds and then resumes. If I move the hose a bit near the vacuum end, it runs smoothly again. Does this sounds as if there might be a short in the motor? Would this be something I can fix myself or does the vacuum need to go in for repairs.

My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong. Upon furter examination I noticed one of the traces on the printed circuit card was burnt. I used a soldering iron to "bridge the trace and it appeared to fix the problem for a while. Now it has stopped working again, and when I jumper the trace to run the motor it seems to work. Should I just replace the card? Or is there a more serious problem with too much current


I recommend replacing the card. Soldering involves the risk of further damaging the card, so it would be useless anyway. Why waste valuable time?\015\012There is a possibility of the motor overheating, generally due to a blockage in the airfl ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

My Dyson Root 6 made a loud banging sound, and now its motor emits a strong burning smell every time it's switched on. It runs for a second or two, making a lot of noise, and then stops. (Just bought a new battery for it, too - what a drag...) It's off warranty, and Dyson wants almost as much to fix it as a new one would cost. Is my Root 6 e-waste, or is there anything that can be done for it?

I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

My Discovery 4210 Roomba will run normally for about 20 minutes on a smooth, wooden floor. It then begins the following sequence: run forward a few inches, turn in a tight counter-clockwise circle a few revolutions, stop, power off a few seconds, power up, repeat cycle from forward run. The sequence can be repeated seemingly endlessly if I don't turn off the power manually. I've replaced the motor, and led revolution sensor system on the left drive wheel.

It's probably doing that on low speed too, you just aren't noticing. What you'll have to do is get to the motor. Look at the armature and see if it's scared, missing an pieces, scratched up.. if so, then your motor is shot, throw it away.. If not, if ... Vacuums

My Dyson DC07 vacuum started to run slower after being on for a little while and then would run normally again. I have switched on today and it has just stopped. When I push the start button, on occasions it almost starts and then doesn't. I am wondering if there is a problem with the switch and if so how can it be fixed? Thankyou.


The motor running slower was the motor starting to burn out. The "almost start" is the brushes making intermittent contact with the armature in the motor. \015\012\015\012Your machine needs a new motor Pam. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
