Having problems with your Eureka 421A EZ Kleen Bagless Stick Vacuum ?

Johnson CL.A U8820-120 motor jammed up in my Bissell carpet power cleaner

\015 I bought my Bissell carpet power cleaner for three years, I only use it once a year, when I turned it on last week, smoke came out from the motor, after I removed the motor from the device and found that the blower side of the motor was jammed with hair and dirt, what a poor design! Without a filter connected to the blower, can you not expcect to have the jamming situation? How can I find a better solution to permanently fix this problem?\015

Answers :

I obtained a bearing from McMaster Carr (mcmaster.com) installed it and the carpet cleaner works
\015\012once again. I used a double-sealed bearing (part number 5972K221) rather than a double-shielded
\015\012bearing (part number 5972K36) which was of the type that failed. The original problem probably
\015\012arose from the dirty water tank getting so full that water/detergent is sucked into the motor. I did not
\015\012examine the unit to see if an interlock is supposed to prevent this from happening. In retrospect,
\015\012I probably should have gone for a stainless bearing (part number 6153K71) which costs $11.56
\015\012rather than the $4.26 for the one I selected. The repair was fairly straight-forward but confusing at
\015\012times. The motor is under lower front cover (rounded with air vents). This is held on by two
\015\012Phillips-head screws set deeply in holes in the back. However, the mounting tabs of the lower
\015\012front cover are under the upper front cover. It may be possible to bend outwards the lower part
\015\012of the upper cover, but I removed the upper cover. In addition to the two screws already mentioned,
\015\012the upper cover is held by two screws passing through the protrusions to which the clean-water
\015\012tank snaps are attached. You have to remove these snaps to pull the upper cover apart. After
\015\012you get the motor/housing out, you can remove the plastic blower housing with four screws, but there
\015\012is a metal blower housing underneath it that has to be pried out. Since the plastic one pries against
\015\012tends to break, I ended up repeatedly catching the edge of the metal housing with a screw-driver
\015\012blade and then rapping the screwdriver with a hammer. After removing the impeller, the motor can
\015\012be pulled free of the blower housing. After removing the brushes, it took a while to realize that
\015\012the brass-colored brush housings had to be slid almost all the way out to uncover the two screws
\015\012that allow the armature to be removed from the field coils. The bearing is press fit in place, so you
\015\012need a puller or some equivalent arrangement to remove the bearing. Not having a press, I used
\015\012the impeller nut to press the new bearing into place. It had to be tapped lightly with a hammer
\015\012at first. One the nut could grab a thread, it was used to press the bearing into place. Since you
\015\012run out of thread before the bearing is fully seated, you need to add some spacers and repeat
\015\012the process. I used a stack of washers. When removing he brushes, label their orientation so
\015\012that they do not add excessive drag when reassembled. So far, the repaired cleaner has run about
\015\012an hour without problems.
