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.

Very nice vacuum btw! These were the competition for the Kirby Heritage II models.

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.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How do i remove the motor?

I assume this is a Kirby. If that is the case, go to this URL and select the correct model.
It will take you to an exploded view of the unit. Though not easy to read, it does show the hardware that holds the motor in place. You can also order parts via this URL.

I need a user manual for the Shop Vac Classic 20 ( My main issue right now is that the 'filter' is no longer working, I'm unable to get a replacement here in the...

The bags you ordered are for the ZR 80 type. After veiwing the link you submitted for the type of dry vac you have, these bags will not work with your Classic canister Vac. The filters you need simply go over the intake area,sort of like a coffee filter upside down, the a mounting ring slides over the filter and slid down until it can not go any further,the ring holds the filter in place.(over the foam filter)

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Most of the older Hoover Comm’l type vacuums have a shake our bag with a slide on clamp – so you would keep the clamp & then either the bag usually is wired on @ the bottom of the fill area & would need to re-attach if the outer bag is still in good shape. If not then I suggest that you replace the bag and clamp if needed. include the brand name & model # with your request to either company. Questions? Contact the Hoover website or Hoover cust service @ the info listed below. 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.
