Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hoover Wind Tunnel U5720-950

\015 I was sucking up kitty litter and the vacuum stopped working. After letting the vacuum cool for an hour, I tried to run it and it quit after 3 to 5 seconds with a nasty burning smell.\015\012\015\012I tried to take it apart to clean the motor out but can't figure out how to get to the motor.\015

Answers :

Be sure it has a new bag and fillter, or try running it on a clean surface with the door off. if it still has a burn smell and only runs a few seconds the motor is probably bad. expensive and difficult to access. kitty litter has moisture in it and the vac motor is strong enough to pull the moisture out and draw it through the motor which will damage the commutator. kitty litter (and plaster dust) are stone dust composed and will pass some material through filters in to motors. for such jobs you should use a shop vac style machine , since they have a bypass motor that doesn't pass material through it.
