Brush motor not working

\015 I have minuteman c37115-18. The brush motor will not work. I removed motor and it ran OK., but will not work when installed in machine. There is power to motor. I suspecy the small pc board. Any clues?\015

Answers :

If there is power to the motor then it should run. It could be the PCB, if you have power to it and not to the motor, then it is bad. Just start at the motor with a voltmeter and go from there to see where you are losing the voltage. Is the hose want pushed all of the way in the place that it goes? There is a safety switch on alot of this type of vacuum. The idea is so the brush roll won't turn when the hose is out and is upright.

Not exactly a blow gun. Convertible blower/vac - Sears Craftsman. Wire broke off ONE brush in the motor. Paid about $90 for the vac - Sears lists the WHOLE motor as one part - $88. Have requested brushes (they are provided with a lot of my 'cheap' Harbor Freight tools) but no go. Just get the canned reply - buy the whole motor. Actually got it working again... CAREFULLY drilled and tapped a 4-40 screw into the brush and soldered the lead to that... Always a way, isn't there?

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

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
