Removing obstruction from vacuum motor

\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012\015\012I would appreciate advice on how to take apart my vacuum cleaner to remove a bolt that I believe is stuck in the motor or belt inside the casing. When the vacuum cleaner is turned there is a loud grinding noise and a burning smell.\302\240\015\012\015\012Thank you!\015\012\015\012\015

There should be 2 screws on the top of the base.that will take the cover off remove the belt and on each side of the motor there are 1 or 2 screws that hold the motor onto the base,remove those and you should be able to lift the top half of the vacuum off the base,you will be at the motor.look on the end where the fan is and see if you can spot the bolt that stuck in there.try to turn the fan till its moves a little freely then shake the motor and maybe it will fall out.if its there it should be at the fan
Most Eureka's, there are 2 or 3 screws on the top to remove, then the top cover will come off. If no screws on top. then they are on the bottom. After the top is off, the belt and brush are right there in the open. To get to the motor, that off the 2 screws on the clamp on wach side of the motor, screws that are around the motor housing and then the motor cover should pull off. If the smell is electrical, if could be a bad motor, which sells for around $75 to $90. If the smell is more like rubber, then look at the belt and brush roll. If you need more info, get the model # off of the tag.

Samsung Quiet Storm Canister Vacuum VAC-9049 The motor will not run. Power is on to the motorized rug tool. How can I remove the upper housing to get access to the motor?

I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely


The motor is having a problem.There might be two reasons...either the coils inside it got heated up which will be needing rewinding or you can buy a new motor or there r capacitors attached sometimes u can make a check on that also if that's gone Kap ... Vacuums

I have a Kirby Dual Sanitronic '50' Vacuum Cleaner I bought in 1966. The motor does not start when I attach the belt lifter of the rug nozzle. When I remove the rug nozzle and detach the belt from the motor fan shaft the motor starts when I depress the nozzle switch and the power switch . Seems like the brushes in the motor are worn out. I do not have a manual for this unit. Can you assist me as to what newer unit is this compatible to and the problem I'm having at present??

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

I am getting very little suction from the motor. The hose is clear, the bag new. When I open the bag cover, plug the hose in and turn the vacuum on, there is next to no suction from the motor. What do you think is wrong? How do I remove the cord retractor to get to the two screws that hold the back of the canopy cover?


Your problem is probably is you don't have a proper seal in your chasis. A vacuum has to be sealed tight or the air will leak out and the seal broken. Check around the whole body after the bag is in and check for any airflow noise. I could help more ... Vacuums
