Having problems with your Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum ?

Blown motor, or just a fuse?

\015 I have the model 3750-T, and the other day I had a power surge, while vaccuming, which caused the motor in the "brush" section (the bit that makes the most noise) to stop working completely.Basic suction works, but this thing doesn't do much anymore....it's essentially an oversized hand vac.Wondering if anyone has had any problems like this before, i'm hoping it's a blown fuse and not a totally blown motor.I'll see if i can pull it apart later today and find out for sure.Any help is most appreciated,Pat.\015

Answers :

Suggest you double check that this machine really does have a separate motor to drive the brush roller - most just have a single motor that drives the vacuum impeller directly, and the roller through a belt.
\015\012If yours is the same, then the most likely problem is a worn-out belt. Hope so, as this makes for a cheap and easy repair.

My Air Vac is 20-21 years old. Recently it stopped running. I found the fuse by the motor was blown and replaced it. It blew immedicately when I turned it on. I think I need to repace the motor. Do you agree and can I buy a motor from you.?

If the fuse does keep blowing yes you do need to replace the motor. I am sorry we do not sell parts though. Try the link below to get the motor.\015\012\015\012 ... M&S Systems Vacuums

I fear the motor has failed on my Electrolux Oxygen EL6988D. Just six months after the warranty expired, I was vacuuming when it suddenly stopped. There was no blockage in the tube and it wasn't working hard or long . . . it just stopped. I looked around the Internet and it appeared that many similar Electrolux units have a fuse. I hoped my problem might just be a blown fuse, so I took the machine apart. There are two small printed circuit boards, but no fuse. There is an in-line

Hi,\015\012\015\012I don't think you need a new motor, but please stop testing the machine with live power. It's dangerous and unnecessary.

I was given a model 6591, plugged it in and it worked but didnt "****" and didnt sound right. I turned it off and removed the hose from the back found a badly plugged hose. Removed the hair plug cleaned filters and when I tried to turn it on again. Now the motor will not turn on or even make a noise. I hear there is a fuse that can be blown? How can I find the fuse if there is one? Thank You Ron

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse

The 10 amp thermal fuse on my Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner has blown. Unfortunately the red ink has worn off exactly where the temperature rating is printed so even with a magnifying glass cannot make out the exact replacement fuse to buy. Can anyone shed any light. I know you can buy the complete thermal fuse and wiring from currys partmaster but with delivery would cost about 20 pounds as opposed to 69 pence for the fuse itself. Thanks Mark Roberts

It appears the fuse is not available separately. Standard retail price for the complete unit is £9.00 including VAT. We can supply at that price plus postage and packing at cost, which would probably be no more than £2.50.  If this i ... Vacuums

My dc 05 isnt working and i cant understand why , i have cleaned all filters etc and i also changed the fuse on the plug , which after i didi that it attempted to start but then jus cut out again so i thought the fuse had blown again , so i checked the fuse but its working fine could there still be a blockage somewhere in it or is it something electrical which means my dyson has to go to the dump :(

I have a Z345 Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner, from the 1970s probably, but not used much. I have lost the guide. I forgot to change the bag before it was full. Smoke started to come out - smelling of burnt paper, not rubber. So switched off. It did not blow the fuse, and may be OK. I wish to inspect it. How do I open it up? Alos I have an air filter and a motor filter for it. I have often changed the air filter on the top. How do I get at the motor filter, if there is one? Than

I have a kenmore vacuum cleaner model # 116.23612. When the hose is attached to the canister it runs, but if you remove the head to just use the hose the unit stops working.
