Having problems with your Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum ?

Motor gets hot in moments and shuts off

\015 I had a clog in the hose and the motor got hot and turned off but a bad smell came from it. I have cleaned all the filters and the clog and it will not get any suction and over heats within seconds of turning it on again. I have tried to run it with out the canister and filters and it dose the same thing. I was told the motor would not burn out because it had safety measures built in to prevent this. It will power up briefly and shuts off.\015

Answers :

True, the motor has safety measures to stop it from overheating... that's why it shut down. You smelled something, so some kind of damage was done. It's possible that the over temp switch itself got fried. Doesn't sound too good from here.

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?

Oreck model BB870-AS - I was vaccuming when the vac shut off. The motor just spooled down and nothing more since. I have opened the case. Have power at the switch, and to the motor, but can't get a voltage reading to the common lead at the motor. Is there a fusible link, or something similar in that lead that might have burned out?
