Having problems with your Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum ?

Electrolux Epic overheating

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012You posted a message in response to my question about whining bearings in an Electrolux Epic cannister vacuum. I was able to take the motor apart, replace the bearings (got a couple from NAPA), and put it all back together.\015\012\015\012I thought that would solve my problem, but now the vacuum won't even start. The overheat light is on constantly. I believe the temperature sensor is the small rectangular piece that is soldered in the middle of one of the wires leading from the motor? I tested it with my multimeter and it is reading .2 ohms resistance across it. Is that supposed to be closed until it gets too hot and then it opens, or the opposite of that?\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for your help!\015\012\015\012-Chris\015

Answers :

It stays closed until the temp. is excedded, then opens. Does the motor shaft turn easily or does it drag. If it drags, then that is what is causing the heat problem. Not sure what it should read, it could be bad, but it should read low ohmns, so it is hard to say.
