How to replace brush bar motor


It's not easy. The cleaner head assembly is hard to get off the main frame. When you get it there are 4 hex screws to the motor cover (hard to turn). Then a black and a white wire go into the unit. The wire cover can be removed with one hex screw but you still can't disconnect them. You have to remove the housing on the main drum (which I haven't done yet). I was looking for a picture like this all day. This is a shot I took today, apparently the only shot of the motor in the housing on the entire web. bc2d0b10-525a-469b-953c-57c5fd2f36e0.jpg

New bag indicator will not reset causing bare floor mode not to work at all and mode 2 not to vacuum dirt properly


Your top motor (suction motor) isn't running. Your vacuum has two motors in it. The top motor is the suction motor that runs on the first switch position and the bottom motor (brush motor) turns on with the second possition.
It could be the switch.If it isn't the switch, the only other thing it could be is the motor itself.
To check the switch, unplug the vacuum and then take the three screws out of the back of the handle. If you are comfortable with electricity, jump the black wire and the blue wire togeather and plug the vacuum into a electrical outlet. If the motor dosen't run, the problem is with the motor. If the motor runs, the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. You can get one at most any vacuum shop.
The motor could be bad or the carbon brushes can be stuck with dust. This is more involved and I recomend taking the vacuum to a vac shop that works on the "old" Electrolux vacuums. The new name for the "old" Electrolux is now Aerus Lux but you would probably get it repaired less expensively at another vacuum shop.
If you want to go into the motor housing you'll have to take the big screw out of the back of the handle and pull up on the handle to remove it. Next, remove the four screws holding the top half (motor housing) of the vacuum. Two screws on the back and two screws to the front inside of the bag housing. You'll need a long #2 phillips screw driver. Then pull up on the bag housing with a side to side motion.
With the housing removed, you will see the motor and can lift it out.
Check for any bad winding. You can smell them to check if you can't tell by looking at them. If they are burned, you will need to replace the motor.
To check the brushes, you will need a 5/16th" socket to remove the two bolts on the top of the motor and lift the top bracket with the carbon brushes off and see if the brushes move freely. If not moving or not long enough to touch the top part of the motor with the copper bars (the comutator) it would be best to replace the motor.
To reassemble the vac just reverse.
This is a long and difficult prosedure and I reccomend that you take the vacuum to a repair shop that works on the Electrolux.

Motor wont turn locked up


Sounds like something was picked up that should not have been and is now stuck in the fan housing. Lay the vacuum out with the housing bottom side up and take out the 5 screws that hold the base plate on and then remove base plate. You should see your intake nozzle that leads to the fan housing and it has 1 screw and the motor has two screws holding it down. Remove all 3 screws and that will allow you enough room to remove the intake nozzle off the machine and that will allow you to see what may be jammed in the fan housing. It might be possible to look through the intake nozzle and see your jam but you still might have to take it apart to get the jam out. Watch carefully as you take the vacuum apart so that you can put it back together correctly. It is fairly simple so you should not have to much of a problem with it and you should only need a Phillips screwdriver and maybe a pair of pliers to remove any jam. Hope this helps!

How do you get to the fan on the generation 3 kirby


First remove the handle, next remove the screws attaching the cord, and switch trim plate. The small screw and knob on the handle pivot must be removed to remove the switch trim piece - insert a flat screwdriver into the small slot in the plastic and pop the trim off to expose the rear motor shell screws. Remove the four screws holding the upper motor shell in place to expose the fan housing screws. Remove the five screws holding the fan housing in place, noting their positions. Pry the fan housing off to expose the fan. Hold the fan in place while turning the belt pulley CLOCKWISE to remove it. If the armature turns, it must be held in place with an open end wrench (about 9mm). There are flat spots on the armature just in front of the commutator bars. Pull or pry the fan and associated washer off the armature shaft. After replacing the fan and pulley, put a bead of silicon sealant on the fan housing and replace all parts in reverse order of removing.

Vorwerk VK121 vacuum cleaner - smell of burning from housing enclosing motor. How do I get into the housing to inspect the motor? After tilting the bag sideways, there are two screws holding the housing...


yes the handle is clipped in place and should come out when the button in front is pushed. Remove the screws you wrote about. After that the puzzle begins. At the bottom of the vacuum where the head is attached, remove the head by pressing the button. This same button now needs to be pressed all the way through while pulling on the top of the motor base. The outer shell will slide off while the motor stays attached to the part where the bag is attached. After this the entire motor is revealed and the brushes can easily be replaced. Hope this helps.

Kirby Legend II, How do you remove Foot Switch


There is a plastic pop in trim cover which surrounds the switch itself. It will peel off revealing two screws which hold the switch in place onto the underside of housing.
However you must also remove the rear cone shaped motor housing by a series of philips screws where the motor meets the fan intake area. You should not have to remove any screws from the front are of the fan housing
Pay attention to these screws as they all face inward to the center area of the housing at the sides and underneath, but there are several lengths

Removing cover to motor


You will have to access the motor by removing the entire bottom brush housing and tilting the vac motor shaft out of the housing. Once released you will have a main body and brush housing.
There are visible motor housing screws in the lower portion of the main housing and if I recall there may be twoscrews inside the bag chamber as well

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 different models of the boss by Eureka – there is a standard old style upright that the belt that the belt would unscrew from the bottom of the motor and you would have to remove the top of the vacuum cover to remove the main motor and gasket assm, and then the fan has a reverse thread on the plastic fan and you would unscrew the fan after removing the belt pulley. Then you would screw on the new fan, belt pulley, replace the gasket and re-install the motor. If you have a new style with a side mount motor you would remove the top cover, the motor would be in there sideways, un-screw the motor, remove the silver tape around the fan housing and un-screw the fan housing – same as above un-screw the fan from the motor, there is a nut on the end of the fan holding that on – (remember, the fan has a reverse thread) re-install the fan. Then the fan housing, replace the silver tape, and then screw down the motor and replace the top cover, then you can test. As always free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or contact your Eureka factory manufacturer listed below:
