Having problems with your Royal 2008Z Classic Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

On my old Royal the motor has stopped working

\015 I have removed the two motor brushes from the side casing and wiped them off, and blown air in to where the bushes are inserted. I also removed the four screws and took off the little cover plate, where the power cord is spliced to feed power to the motor and the light. Where they are spliced, I verified that the power cord is good, with a volt meter. But the motor still doesnt power up, as though there is no AC (even though I checked). I can turn the beater brush and the motor itself rotates (its not hung up or binding). Whats next? I want to get access to the motor itself so that I can vacuum out the inside of the motor. Any suggestions?\015

\015\012Hello,
\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012Even though you took out the carbon brushes and blew them out – on the Royal and other vacuums you need to mark the way the carbon brushes go in and out with some type of line on the top of the carbons and if you put them in wrong they are not making a good contact with the armature, and if that is the problem you may have to replace the carbon brushes with new ones and make sure you mark them with some type of line on the time. Question? Did you vacuum run before you cleaned the carbon brushes? Also, you can remove the motor back cover by removing the 4 screws on the back of the fan housing and you can also check for a loose wire or connection, so If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

If the carbon brushs are ok, then either the armature or the field is bad. You will have to rebuilt the motor, or replace it, which ever is cheaper and available. You will have to get parts from someone selling Royal parts, or maybe take it to a place that will rebuild it for you.

Faithful Sebo X1 upright, about 12 years old, stopped working today. I replaced old with new dust bag, checked all dust paths were clear, checked main brush was clear/clean, and drive spindle rotated OK with fingers.

This is not an electrolux problem, but I am hoping one of the experts can answer the question. I have a Sears air compressor that suddenly stopped working. After looking at how the motor case is put together, it appeared that it would essentially have to be destroyed to get it apart and into the motor. I received a new compressor for my birthday so I decided to tear into the old one to do some diagnosis. After getting into the case where I could see the motor/pump, I have discovered the prob

Hello, I have a Hoover 3200 Turbo Power vaccum. while the motor appears to be working fine the vaccum no longer picks up the dirt.

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old


Sounds like you should do two things:\015\0121- Remove and clean the beater brush of all debris as best you can.

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

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.

My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong.

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
