Central vac system is 18 years old. Recently started to shut down during vacuuming. Motor may be over heating. Electrolux has been out and is pushing a new system but not sure if it is necessary.
The motor can be replaced for a lot less than the cost of a new machine. A new motor comes with a one year warranty if installed by the service tech. A new CV unit alone may be over three times as much, but does have a five year warranty.\015 ... Electrolux Cs 3000 Central System Vacuum

Bad Motor I have purchased two of the Kenmore direct drive beltless systems with Progressive systems. The first died after a year, the vacuum motor start making a grinding noies. I pulled the side HEPA filter and could see a fine coating of graphite like dust. Took it to a vacuum repair shop. They said the brushes were going and thus the motor was shot. I liked the vacuum and bought a second, 1 year later the motor is making a slight noise that and removing the HEPA filter I find a slight metall
That dust is from the carbon brushes on the motor. You may need to check them, and also clean out the motor compartment. A slight noise could be a motor bearing starting to go. Does the smell like rubber or electrical. If rubber, then the belt h ... Vacuums
The motor just went out on my 2 year old vacuum with light usage (hardwood floors in a very small house.) The Sears repairpeople are estimating ~ $130 to fix (this includes parts & labor). I'm wondering if it's worth investing $130 into something i've spent $350 on only 2 years ago. Shouldn't these machines last longer ? Is there something I could do to get them repair free as it seems the motor must have been faulty to only have lasted 2 years. Thoughts ?

Hi., If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, I have a Flair 3055 ventalation system in my house and over the last five years two fan motors have gone bad. it has been mickey moused together by a local repair man, and as of last week, it has died again. At 4-5 hundred a pop I would like to fix it myself, can anyone suggest a good replacement motor that will fit and work. My honey has breading problems and at this time of year, every penny is allocated, so time is of the essence. t
Hello George, Sorry about your predicament. Various fans are available for your unit but since you say the unit has been mickey moused together adjustments must have been made to the fan seating and system therefore if you order any particular fan th ... Vacuums
I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean. I washed the gore filter (output from motor to clean the exhaust air) as per instructions, then let to dry. It was very clogged but now very clean. The vacuum clearner still cuts out often. Even after a long rest (say overnight) it still won't start, then ano

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.
Motor/Fan does not run. I have removed and taken the top of the canister plastic motor housing apart and tested for power. I have power through the cord to the switch and power from the switch to the two wire terminals. I have not removed the motor. Looks like I will need special tools to take out the motor. The Vac looks almost new. It has been setting for several years. What do you think?

I have a dyson canniter stow away vacuum. i've had it for 2 years and it just started having a problem. when i turn it on the motor starts just fine but the vacuum head does not turn on. Yet when i push it forward it trys to start and turns on for a second and turn off - almost like the connector isn't connecting the hose to the head very well anymore.

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions
Many vacuums have internal thermal switches that need to cool to allow the vac to operate. After 30 minutes, check all 3 air filters and try again.\012Gary ... Bosch BSG71310UC Bagged Canister Vacuum

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John
It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
Hoover EmPower 4600 keeps blowing circuit breaker. The number of outlets in the house that will allow me to run the vacuum is dropping quickly. It is a 4 year old house and all the circuit breakers are 20 amps. The vacuum only has a 12 amp motor. I am at a loss to solve this problem.

WST 1600A I purchased this vaccum about four months ago from Heartland America. Up to this point it's worked fine. After cleaning it this time when I went to start vaccuming again it runa for about 10 seconds and cuts off. I've changed the battery, taken everything that can be removed out checked it and replaced it. THe motor sounds like it's straining. I have not taken the housing off the motor to see what's going on with that. I misplaced my manual.
It sounds like there is a clog. If there is no air flow it could be overheating. ... Westinghouse WST1600 Upright Vacuum
I have a vx550cc that keeps kicking in and out quickly, then shuts down for a few seconds and starts up kicking in and out again. There is lots of suction at all the outlets and sweeps. The dirt bucket has been emptied and the filter cleaned. Al the LED lights light up when the motor kicks out, then back to one green when it starts back up. This unit has worked great for four years with no problems.

Burning when the vacuum was started today it didn't sound like it should and then started to smell like the motor was burning. this is less than 1 year old!!!!

My steam tek mop is not heating up. It is only a little over a year old and just quit steaming and the motor noise is louder than usual.Water comes out but the pad is not heated at all.
My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t

Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin. So we took the housing off and after unclogging a hose running to the hearter, my husband unhooked the hose that goes to the flow indicator, blew in it and it started spinning. Put the deep cleaner back together, tried to use it and nothing. What else can we try? Can't afford to put it in the shop right now. Thanks in advance.
I borrowed my friends bissell to clean my carpet. It's the 7901. He brought it over and told me that it only sprayed out of the attachment hose. He said he couldn't figure out what was wrong.

I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice? I really like this vacuum and would really like to fix it rather than replace it!

Hi. We have a Riccar N2100 vacuum cleaner, which has served us well for many, many years. I'd like to attempt a repair on this unit, and looking for advice and/or a parts diagram to proceed. The unit makes a groaning sound when shut off. The sound tapers off in pitch as the motor and beater bar come to a stop. The sound only happens when the vacuum cleaner is turned off in the normal upright position. The sound does not happen when the lower unit and main housing are both laying flat. I took
I have a whirlpool personal valet steamer system that is mounted to the wall. The system was in the house when I purchased it so I would suspect it's about 8 - 10 years old and I cannot find the manual for it. When I push the start button it automaitcally cancels the set up and will not run. I have unplugged it for a while and then put it back in and it's worked before but not anly longer. How do i get a manual or can I find a repair person to look at it.
We are VERY disappointed in our Steam mop. After only using twice in one year and following all the instructions, went to use it yesterday, Oct. 7th and could not get any steam out? It started up and it felt like it was heated, but no steam therefore could not clean our floors?
