Thanks for your question,
Changing the brushes might help, but more often since you said its really stiff, something in the motor over heated and it would probably benefit you more to change out the motor, the windings could be burned up, at least you will have the peace of mind that you know your motor wont lock up again. if it were me, I would replace over repair, hope this helps, please rate this and let us know what happens, thanks again,

Gas package unit


the bushing or the bearing in the motor may have already worn out. or may need some lubrication. the rotor is trying to turn but it's stiff and won't continue to turn. dont continue to turn on if it wont spin otherwise you'll damage the motor further. it might also be the busted capacitor "if it has"

No suction from my kirby sentria


I just took a stiff piece of coax cable, and took the bag off where it attaches to the main unit, and took the head off ( the part with the brush roll in it) AMD cleaned every thing really well, turning the spindle for the fan while " snaking" it and pulled out a baby sock! Ta-Da! Works like New.

Steven, I thoroughly enjoyed your thorough explanation of what and how it e. Really, the best I have ever read, so far.

What may have happened it that the fan sensor may need readjusting or resetting. In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it that you can download and print for future reference. Pay particular attention to Pages 6 & 7, as well as the Troubleshoot Guide. If all else fails, get a bigger hammer! Just kidding. If you find you need any replacement parts, you can order them directly for www.masterdistributors.com

Owners Manual link below.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Ac fan not turning on I can ''stick start it'' but which direction?


The condensor fan should be sucking air from the top and blowing it through the coils, probably a counter clockwise direction. The buzzing/humming sound is confusing to me. A humming sound sounds like a motor that can not turn over to start. A starting capacity would be needed. Just because you changed it out last year does not mean it is good. A buzzing sound sounds like a contactor problem. Contactors buzz and after a while, they will fail. In any case, you can "stick start" the condensor fan PROVIDED you are sure the ac compressor is working (this is for a short and temporary use). Also, you may have a high load duty capacitor that assists in the unit running. This will affect your condensor fan operation if it is not good. Unless you know all the components and operations of ac electrical, I would highly recommend calling out a professional.

Tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin


Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Loud buzzing after heating up


the buzzing is normal.  there is an element inside the quartz tube much like a filament in a light bulb.  as this heats up it starts to move.  where you have electrical energy you also have magnetism produced. metal objects vibrate when they are in or within a magnetic field. the element is tungsten wire and vibrates off this magnetic field.
