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
Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still rotates but it still gives off sparks and burning smell. Do i have to change the motor as well? Can you help please? Thankyou Martin
Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Hello, My Electrolux Oxygen motorized brush stopped working. How do I determine if it is the switch, a belt or something else that is causing the motor not to work?
Hey Lee,We had the same problem and after taking it to a service guy who didn't even want to LOOK at the vacuum, it occurred to us to plug the powerhead brush directly into the handle and it worked! So, we were able to determine that the probl ... Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum
Not working I hit the switch and there is no sound of a motor. Nothing is happening. It was working seconds earlier and suddenly it stopped. The plug was in and I replugged it into the outlet. Still, no power and no motor sound. Does this happen if the belt goes? Thank you, Jill
If it was just a broken belt you would still hear the motor running. most likely its in your cord or switch. check the main cord, connections to the switch, and also the motor supply cord that goes from the handle to the vacuum head. ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

Recently my central vac system started making a louder than usual and laboured sound when in uise, enough so that I took note and inspected the canister and motor while running. The motor was trowing off blue sparks and looked like it could 'POP' at any moment. I will not risk using it until I know what the problem is and how to repair it. My assumption is the motor needs to be replaced. The system came with the resale house I bought 3 yrs ago but I do not know the age of the system itself.
My 20" Patton electric fan has stopped working. I use it for animal cooling and it operates in dusty conditions. I suspect that the motor is shot. Is it worthwhile to replace the motor and are motors even available?
You could just try to clean the motor out by taking it apart, and shining the shaft up. then put some motor oil/engine oil on the shaft. That will work 99% of the time. ... Vacuums

After many surges of the motor (on->off->on-> off etc), the motor no longer attempting to start as ferquently ie. now off for many seconds and may turn on for 1 second.. sometimes stops turming on and just power light flashes. There is also no voltage at the plug for the hose for the power head. I noticed that the vacuum first started having probs when hair was caught in the power head and the ovetrheating light went on

My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong. Upon furter examination I noticed one of the traces on the printed circuit card was burnt. I used a soldering iron to "bridge the trace and it appeared to fix the problem for a while. Now it has stopped working again, and when I jumper the trace to run the motor it seems to work. Should I just replace the card? Or is there a more serious problem with too much current
I recommend replacing the card. Soldering involves the risk of further damaging the card, so it would be useless anyway. Why waste valuable time?\015\012There is a possibility of the motor overheating, generally due to a blockage in the airfl ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum
