Question about Numatic Henry Bagged Canister Vacuum
I could smell a burning out smell so i took the lid off my henry to check i put him back together now he as stopped working
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.

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.
