Have a Rainbow SE passed down from my Mom who bought it used.Never any trouble, haven't used it for couple of months. When I turn it on now , the motor hums, but doesn't suction. Was afraid to keep it running as I didn't know if the motor was locked or what. Can you advise if there is any home repair I might attempt?

I own a Hoover Steam Vac Plus w/ Rotating Brushes (model#F5871-900), when I turn on the power I hear a medium-loud hum coming from the motor area and nothing works. What could be the issue?

One day I was vacuuming and it sounded like something went up inside somewhere and the motor, I assume,..... is frozen ..all it does is hum when I turn it on! I have changed the belt, filter and checked and cleaned all hoses... what could this be? THANK YOU, Gail
It's likely something got into the fan, is stuck there, is preventing the fan from turning, and so prevents the motor running. There's a good possibility the motor burned out because of this. If there's a strong smell of burning metal, this is prob ... Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum

Motor wiring My Vax VS19TL motor died and I have managed to get hold of a new Vax 006 Turboforce motor which is the same size . My problem is that the original motor had two wires (black and white) which ran to the PCB switch. The new motor has three wires (black, white and yellow). I have ordered the PCB wiring loom for the 006 motor but I can't find any documentation that tells me where each wire goes. Can anyone help?

Kenmore canister model 116.25513506 wont turn on. when handle switch is turned to floor. vac motor does not turn on. When switch is turned to carpet, floor nozzle works but vac motor does not. I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs. Thinking it must be the circuit board, how do I bypass it or test it?
Motor doesn't run I believe it the brush on the motor. two motor brushes one is completly gone about 1/8 inch left could this be the problem.the other motor brush still has 1/2 inch left. and current to motor tested good.

The motor in my Powermate (Kenmore Canister 116.27614700) is whining, high pitched, but still works. A local shop told me the motor is dying (the one in the Powermate that drives the beater bar) and would cost $150 for them to repair. The machine is only 1.5 years old and I paid $300...yikes. I think I can fix it but don't understand why the foam gasket that apparently wraps around the motor costs as much as the motor. This is assuming that part 32 (ks747156) is the foam I see glued to my cur

Bad Motor? I have an upright Electrolux Prolux Heavy Duty "Appareil Industriel" and the motor does not seem to be working and turning the brush.

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse

I have a Hoover, Steam spin scrub, Model F5897-900. Only used it a couple times and the motor gave out. First started being noisy then a bad smell. It did seem noisier that what I would expect from the start but I didn't realize it was a problem with the shaft of the motor. I took it apart and found the motor shaft wasn't true and causing sparks. The motor looks like it can not be taken apart and repaired. This seems like a default from the beginning but it is past warranty. Also noti
