Central vacuum Hello, my central vacuum motor just clicks when you insert the hose into the receptacle. Is there anything I can do besides get a new motor or unit?
If the central vacuum is clicking that means that the circuit breaker is working and trying to get the motor to run but the motor is not functioning. This means it's time for either a new motor or a new unit. Unfortunately there's really no way aroun ... Electrolux Central Vacuum
Motor My vacuum cut out as I was using it. After some experimenting I found that the circuit reset had gone off. When I tried a second time while near the motor , there was a flash and again the motor shut off. At this time I am guessing that the motor is faulty. The central vacuuming is approximately 12 years old.
If it tripped the reset again, I would probably agree with you. Check out centralvacuum.com for another motor. They aren't the cheapest, but they have excellent support. Good Luck!! ... Easy Flo EF1400 Central System Vacuum
Our vacuum bag was full and we keep on vacuuming. I believe some lent and hair got sucked into the vacuum motor. We've changed the bag and filters. Now the motor makes a loud noise especially when shutting off. what should we do?
Get a professional repairer to examine it. Even with an over-full bag, dirt will not have got in to the motor if the pre-motor filter was correctly positioned and in good condition. However, the motor may have been damaged through lack of air flow an ... Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should. I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast. The model number is: XL3610HH Ser. No. 3610HHXA039740-6 I do not have as electrical diagram to see

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?
Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum

Rainbow Vacuum, about 5 yrs old (bought new, no issues prior) - my 6yr old tipped it on it's side while water was in basin. Now when I turn the power on, it makes a very loud sound in the motor and you can feel the vibration on the floor. The suction still works and basin still catches dirt - the noise is just so loud and I'm not sure if I should continue use or how to fix -?
Although a wet/dry vacuum, it cannot tolerate water in the motor. Water will cause the motor to short out, which will cause the motor to act/sound like yours does now, if it continues working at all.\015\012To prevent additional problems, the ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

Black soot coming from central vacuum motor - Vacuums
The motor is very loud and dust is coming out. I was told (by a vacuum salesman) that bagless vacuums only last two years and that it would cost more to repair than to replace. Do you think this is true?
Depends on how often you use the vacuum, but I don't think the salesman is too far off the mark. Personally, I'd stay away from Hoover based on feedback I've read from others about poor quality. ... Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
There seems to been a high pitched sound in the motor. I'd describe it as a 'dry' sound, and the high pitch of it is very loud. I want to stop vacuuming because it's so loud. Are there any oil/greasing points/spots? If so, how do I find them?
High pitched noise is not good. It may indicate that a bearing is going out. I would not use Kirby as it may lead to burned motor.If you feel that it vibrates quite a bit too - then it may be only broken fan blade.Fan blade - ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice?

Sounds like you have an overtemp switch that is tripping and shutting your motor off. Many motors use what they call a 'snap switch" ( looks like a small disk with two wires on it ) to sense motor temp and if that trips, then it will temporarily disa ... Vacuums
Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks
