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. Is the motor dead or is there some type of reset or fuse. Could you please tell me how to test this. If so could you please send me instructions on how to replace the motor. Thank you in advance for your help, Tony

I Have a kenmore 116.23612300 canister vacuum which will not start. I have power everywhere but nothing going to the black wire to the motor. Seems to stop at the pcb asm, #KC86WBZRZ000 . Nothing from there to the black motor wire. White wire to motor has continuity everywhere it should. Ruled out just about everything but the PC board. What does it do exactly?

I have a 6550 that just stopped working. I had the on/off switch tested to find out that it was dead. I replaced it and still the machine does not work. Could the wiring in the handle be bad? How do you test if the motor is still good?

I test a motor by taking an old vacuum cleaner cord with alligator clips on the ends and hook it up to the motor simply bypassing the entire vacuum cleaner. If it runs then I know the problem is not the motor. ... Simplicity Vacuums

Stopped working Was working fine then it smelled like burning rubber, not the belt I checked. It sounds like the motor wants to run then it just stopped but the light is on. What do you think, go by a new one?? This has been a great vacuum cleaner and I can not seem to find a Sharp anywere. Thanks for your time.

Well it could be the motor, if it is it would cost around $80 or so for a motor. May be better to buy new, thre are a number of good brands out there. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Miele S318i worked ok till I took it apart to blow really fine ceiling "popcorn" dust that got sucked by the filters. When I plugged back in started for a milli second and quit. At this point I believe the circuit board might be the fault, but I want to test motor before I go and buy the part. Can I simply run 110 to the two moter contacts to bench test? Steve

Yes, you can. ... Miele S318 Bagged Canister Vacuum

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.

I have a dyson animal dc17 vacuum and it totally died. Now I can't figure out which wires go where when I install my new motor. (motor #: 160906G) Do you happen to know where the various color wires go or a place I can see a diagram of the motor with wires attached? I should have taken a photo of it before tearing out the old motor. I don't know where to connect the three coming out from the upright portion of the machine and the red seems to go to a switch (?) and there is a black (connected t

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.

It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

Bad Motor I have purchased two of the Kenmore direct drive beltless systems with Progressive systems. The first died after a year, the vacuum motor start making a grinding noies. I pulled the side HEPA filter and could see a fine coating of graphite like dust. Took it to a vacuum repair shop. They said the brushes were going and thus the motor was shot. I liked the vacuum and bought a second, 1 year later the motor is making a slight noise that and removing the HEPA filter I find a slight metall

That dust is from the carbon brushes on the motor. You may need to check them, and also clean out the motor compartment. A slight noise could be a motor bearing starting to go. Does the smell like rubber or electrical. If rubber, then the belt h ... Vacuums

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor. If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Bruce

The pump motor in my Bissel Proheat 2x Plus seems to have failed. It was seized so I sprayed WD-40 in it and let it sit for 3 days. Now I can turn it by hand, but when plugged into the unit it still doesn't spin. Here's a picture: http://bbay.dreamhost.com/bissel_proheat_2x_plus/P1070021.JPG I wanted to take the motor out and hook it into another power source to see if I can get it going but it has 3 wires.

The solution has stopped going out the hose. The hose seems to be deep inside the machine. How do I get to it to unclog it?

Havent used for about two years. I had to put the belt on it. It doesnt seem to be sucking up very well and after about 15 minutes of vaccuuming the bag was empty. My house got really dusty. I know the rollers were spinning because i looked. I could hear some dirt going in but could definatly tell it wasnt working properly. Is it in reverse or something?

After two years you need to make sure the bag is connected properly and inspect it for tears and that the hoses are connected correctly and not deteriorated. Make sure the hose is clear. You should be able to feel the suction at the end of the hose. ... Vacuums

I want to take the fan impellar off the motor to clean it. I cant seem to get the metal housing off of the motor. Do you have to take the nut off the impellar If so how do you stop the shaft from turning thank you.

Very simply you dont take the fan out of the motor. it was not made to be removed or cleaned because its not supposed o get dirty if your using good bags in the vacuum. the best you can do is blow it out with an air hose. ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old

Kenmore Progressive canister model 116.27514700 Problem: Vacuum motor won't turn on. The power head operates, but nothing from the vacuum.

Roomba My Scheduler started making a "grinding" noise every now and then until one day it just started grinding and then stopped (I could restart the unit, however it repeated the grinding and stopping).

The motor just went out on my 2 year old vacuum with light usage (hardwood floors in a very small house.) The Sears repairpeople are estimating ~ $130 to fix (this includes parts & labor). I'm wondering if it's worth investing $130 into something i've spent $350 on only 2 years ago. Shouldn't these machines last longer ? Is there something I could do to get them repair free as it seems the motor must have been faulty to only have lasted 2 years. Thoughts ?
