Filter Queen motor brushes sparking??

Hi
When I look inside the top of my Filter Queen, I see bluish green sparks on one side - is this a brush that needs changing? there is no unusual noise so I don't think there is metal on metal. If it is a brush, can I change it myself?

Thanks for your observations

Carbon brushes on ME-48 power head motor worn out. Where can I get replacement brushes? Motor is O 90197X7, Lamb, Model 118173-73 - 240V 50/60Hz


Hi Les,

Most sites sell only the motor.
Here's a website that includes motor brushes: http://www.kleen-ritecorp.com/search.aspx?IsSubmit=true&searchTerm=lamb+motor&gclid=CIbZ59zwiKgCFQprKgod8W2itQ

Hope you can find the right brushes.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

I bought 2 used filter queens. Does the power head always bog down to the point of stalling out when vacuuming. Very strange for a high end vacuum.


I shouldn't. Check the power nozzle brush to make sure it's clean. Remove thread, hair, etc. that may be wrapped around the brush.
Check the tautness of the belt. If it's too tight it will cause strain on the motor, which will result in this.
Check the ends of the brush. They may need cleaned, or the bearings may need replaced.
I highly recommend taking it to an authorized Filter Queen distrubuter for diagnosis and repair.

There are instructions for replacing the brush at the following site, if you decide to do it yourself.

I have a Filter Queen Majestic 360 and am having problems with the powerhead. There is a loud rattling noise in the powerhead, especially when I vacuum thicker carpet. I have replaced the motor, roller...


Hi there, as per your information i guess its a problem of power transformer. He can't supply the proper power in the motor & thats why the noise will come from the transformer. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

There is very little power and lots of sparking from the brushes on a Filter Queen motor out of Model 95.


Your motor needs major work. The brushes are probably the cause. My presumption is the armature is burned.

You may be able to get a replacement from Filter Queen and it is worth a e-mail to them.

Alternatively, you might find a replacement at a Fixya.com advertiser or at www.repairclinic.com

Motor Brush for older model Filter Queen


Is there a Johnstone Supply in your area? How about an ACE Hardware. A vacum repair place? Sewing machine repair place?

If you have the data, ACE or Johnstone should be able to help you. Don't discount other electrical supply places. You will not get help at a big box place.

When I Googled "Filter Queen parts", I found lots of places on the WWW. There must be something close to you.

Give it a try. Let me know if this works for you.

Zarico the brushes will be very difficult to find on that particular unit. unfortunatly the only way to resolve this issue is to update the motor itself. i can help you find a cheep alternative. being as all filter queens are on the same design you can replace the motor itself or update the entire top motor portion. here are a few links to try and help you out with your problem. http://cgi.ebay.com/FILTER-QUEEN-MAJESTIC-LTD-ED-MOTOR-UNIT-ONLY-PERFECT_W0QQitemZ390011060044QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item390011060044&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A570%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

Sparks and smoke


you either have something worn out or the motor inside is going bad. Sounds like the motor in the power head is going bad. Disconnect the the wand from the power head and flip over the head take the plate off. then take the plastic cover off uou should get to the motor then. look at all the parts. I would think you need to replace the brush roll, belt and motor. But this is just a guess

Motor?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
If your Filter Queen Motor is out or not working, the customer can replace the motor if they are mechanically minded and mark the wires as they remove the old motor with the new motor or you can have it serviced by your local vacuum dealer in your area, you can pickup the motor @ a local vacuum cleaner dealer in you area by checking the yellow pages or to contact the Filter Queen factory listed below. It requires a new motor and a new gasket; the biggest problem would be the wiring of the new motor. The factory information is listed below:

Sounds like motor brushes may be going. Is the vacuum cleaner old? I suggest bringing the unit in for service to replace the motor brushes. Get a quote to see if is worthwhile to fix.
