You disconnected some wires take it back apart re connect wires and that will more than likely solve your problem as long as it worked before you took it apart the first time

It's possible when you took the lid off one of the wires has come off a switch or the field. It could also mean the motor has gone. Recommend you get it checked out.

SOURCE: Electrical Burning Smell from Henry HVR200 Vacuum Cleaner

Hi! Highly unlikely that you need a new motor.  Highly likely that you need new carbon brushes.  The smell is caused by excessive sparking between the worn brushes and the copper commutator segments.  Most carbon brushes (and from memory I suspect this includes Henry's) have a copper wire buried in their last few millimeters, and you really need to change them before that becomes exposed.   The longer you run it like this, the more likely you are to damage the commutator, so change them sooner rather than later.  When you change the brushes, you can smooth off the commutator with very fine abrasive paper (the objective is to smooth it, not scratch it!), and then blow all the dust away (or **** it away if you have another vac, of course).  Incidentally, you don't say if you are using a paper bag in your Henry. Some people, because the top-hat filter is so good, try to manage without a bag.  This is false economy!  You should always use a bag. I hope this helps! I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.

My Henry Hoover cut out and will not work. Emptied bag and replaced fuse but no success.


If no burning or smelling, maybe nothing to do with motor, and if caused by the safety cut-out, it will need about an hour to cool down, and then check filter, bag, and drop coin through hose, pipes and the floor tool, to check for blockages and to stop it running hot. Damaged cable, worn carbon brushes, broken electrical rewind electrical contacts or even the printed circuit board (later models) are the most likely causes.

Motor is making a strange noise and smells of burning


The motor needs to be replaced. Unless your Henry is still under warranty it's cheaper to buy a new one.

Wet vac motor making noise and smells like burning


Hi I would suggest that the burning smell and the noise will mean that the motor is burnt out. You can get them pretty cheaply from the internet and they are quite easy to fit.

My hoover smells of ammonia


Hello,
I too have a problem with a bad smell coming from my henry hound hoover, but thats probely because i haven't used a hoover bag. I took the cloth filter out,banged all the dust off, then sprayed it with 'RugDoctor' pet stain remover for carpets and upholstery. It still smells a bit, but not half as bad as befor. I have now ordered a reusable,zipable,washable cloth hoover bag especially made for Henry's. It cost £8.80 from ebay with free postage. Hope this helps Nikki.

Stopped working


Hi!  Sorry you've had to wait so long for a reply, but I've only just stumbled upon your problem.  You probably don't need help any longer, but here goes anyway! You will not find a fuse, because there isn't one.  If your Henry just stopped, without making any strange noises or smells, it's very unlikely that you have a motor problem.  Quite often the wires can become broken inside the electric cable - with no visible external damage - especially where it enters the plug and can be subject to both bending and pulling stresses.  If the machine came to me for attention, that's where I'd look first.  Check the wires for electrical continuity. If you still need help, and this solution doesn't work, please write again and I'll suggest some less likely things to look for. Good luck!
