I have a Kirby G7 and it will run on the low speed setting. When i switch to the high speed it starts to spark and smoke near the back of the motor near the windings. Do i have a motor going bad or is there a simpler fix.
It's probably doing that on low speed too, you just aren't noticing. What you'll have to do is get to the motor. Look at the armature and see if it's scared, missing an pieces, scratched up.. if so, then your motor is shot, throw it away.. If not, if ... Vacuums

I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

My Rainbow E2 has been working great for years now, but recently it has stopped working on the vaccuuming setting, but will still run on the low speed air cleaning setting.

We have a series e rainbow cleaner. my wife had been using it i turned off and turned the canister up sie down to get the serial number. it would not turn back on.we need a new hose and thats why i was looking for the serial num. it has a rocker switch and the motor will work on low but will not run on the suction side. i have checked the wiring harnesses out as best i could without taken it all apart. im wondering if it may be the switch. it started once and then stopped.
There is one way to verify if it is the switch.It's kind of dangerous though,but not too bad.You need an extra piece of wire,fairly thick.I would use 4 guage myself.Hold it with pliers,just in case it gets hot.Turn the switch on and hold the wire to ... Rainbow Vacuums

I bought a Tacsew T8700 High Speed Stright Stitch and I should have paid more attention to the 'High Speed'! The motor that came with this industrial machine is a Tacsew Clutch Motor model: RM1878-1H. It is way too fast when starting out and usually breaks the thread. The local company I bought it from told me there was not a user manual for the machine or the motor :P.

My Dyson DC07 vacuum started to run slower after being on for a little while and then would run normally again. I have switched on today and it has just stopped. When I push the start button, on occasions it almost starts and then doesn't. I am wondering if there is a problem with the switch and if so how can it be fixed? Thankyou.
The motor running slower was the motor starting to burn out. The "almost start" is the brushes making intermittent contact with the armature in the motor. \015\012\015\012Your machine needs a new motor Pam. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

I would suggest that your motor bearings are packing up. You will eventually harm the windings by overheating (although there is a thermal limiter). The bearing replacement is a job for a service shop unless you are pretty handy. ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

I heard that a class action lawsuit against Oreck Vacuum is being started because of all the problems customers are having with their vacuums. Does anyone know about this? My Oreck is only a couple of years old and keeps burning up belts. I took it in after only one week of usage when I started to notice white smoke coming out of it and the smell of burning rubber. I feel like I got the old run-around, when the service tech told me he couldn't find anything wrong (but replaced the burned up belt
