Having problems with your Royal 4000 Classic Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

All of sudden, the vacuum stopped. There is power to and through the on/off switch. Could the motor have just died without warning? Please advise. Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
\015\012Very nice vacuum btw! These were the competition for the Kirby Heritage II models.
\015\012 Most vacuum cleaner motors are brush type motors. If a carbon brush fragments then only one brush contacts the brush ring. If you read power at the motor terminal connection terminals in both the high and low switch positions there are 2 things that are left as the probable failure. Brushes, or motor windings. Resistance of the motor winding should be about 220 Ohms. There are 3 terminals on the motor connection. One common (neutral) and one for power (line) and one ground if you have a 3 pronged power cord. The same thing happned to my Hoover concept one... working fine and just stoped. In my case one of the 2 motor windings failed (high speed winding). I had used it just over 45 seconds when it failed so it did not over heat.

Our unit is 7024A Electrolux Oxygen 3 - it seems to work great but suddenly, the head or 'power brush' or whatever it is called - has died. I checked by removing the hose and plugging it directly into the body, but it is still dead. Without that motorized head working, the vacuum is useless. Is it worth replacing? The unit is only about 1 year old and has seen light use only. Very frustrating, since it was the most expensive unit in the store:(

Hello, I didn't notice that the bag on my miele was full and kept vacuuming until the vacuum turned itself off (died). Have I done irreparable damage to the motor, or will it work again once it has cooled off? Thanks.

I have a dyson dc05 absolute turbobrush vacuum. turned it on and it slowly died in seconds. then tried to turn on again and only came on sporatically for a moment. Is it the on/off switch or motor?

We have a 2001 Kirby G vacuum. The cleaning lady was using it in one room, then brought it to another room and plugged it into another receptacle. It wouldn't start.

My kids ran the vacuum without a bag in it while i was on vacation. When it runs the motor sounds a bit strained and much louder. How can I fix this on my own?

I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

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

Motor My vacuum cut out as I was using it. After some experimenting I found that the circuit reset had gone off. When I tried a second time while near the motor , there was a flash and again the motor shut off. At this time I am guessing that the motor is faulty.

If it tripped the reset again, I would probably agree with you. Check out centralvacuum.com for another motor. They aren't the cheapest, but they have excellent support. Good Luck!! ... Easy Flo EF1400 Central System Vacuum

Dead motor? My 8 year old Miele S251i has worked fine, until I was recently vacuuming and moved the plug from one outlet to another. When I restarted the vacuum, it made rrrrr.....rrrrrr....rrrrr noises and smelled like something was burning. I turned it off, and it's shown no signs of life since. Sound like a motor problem? I've taken the cover off and looked at the cord and seen the motor, nothing looks obviously wrong, but I'm also not mechanical.
