Motor noise CV 353

Unfortunately I forgot ot keep changing the bag when cleaning up after a b ig sanding job. The bag burst and I only noticed when the motor started to make a LOT of noise (still providing suction though).
I cleaned out the bag and filter and bottom half of the unit but the noise persists and I fear there may be sawdust/dust all up in the motor itself.
Is this something I can fix? I haven't yet tried to take apart the upper section of the unit. Oh, and there was a lot of dust around the pipes
(inlet/outlet) so i think the dust got everywhere (somehow).

As the cost of getting it serviced might equal replacing the motor I thought maybe I should try and take it apart and just vacuum it all down with another cleaner. Is this reasonable easy to do for the casual home-improver?

Thanks
TJ

Its not that bad to take apart and blow out the motor with a compressor, but if that dust got into the bearings of the motor it could be ruined.

No suction only the blower works its a canister model


Loss of suction is invariably caused by a blockage. Sometimes I have needed to rod out the hose but mostly servicing the filters are what is needed.

Filters generally remain fairly clean but some spillage of bag contents due to over-filling or a burst bag can block a filter in a very short time.
It isn't unusual for users to remove the filters for better suction but the next time the bag bursts the contents are sucked through the motor and sprayed back into the local atmosphere. It is often the ruination of the motor.

Suction/odor


could possibly be a bad bearing on the motor or motor itself. and possibly the end on the beater bar ( bearing or belt placement roller ) could be seized up .

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops...


I'm assuming this is the Epic 6500 or similar model.
Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembly itself.
For cvs, turn dial on top of vacuum all the way to the largest dot, and try above test again. If that doesn't work, then it's the CVA. It needs to be cleaned or replaced, which is an in shop job. Fro repair, take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store. I recommend a full clean and service to remove any dust/dirt from the motor, fan assembly, and other internal parts.

Another problem, which relates to the dial setting, is that fine dust will quickly clog the pores of the bag, resulting in the machine "thinking" the bag is full. Turning the dial to the proper setting helps get the bag fuller. The middle setting is the normal setting, and is for areas without fine dust and sand.

The vacuum has started making a much louder noise. like something is coming apart or is stuck/clogged. Noticed the fan type blade has several cracks, some bigger than others. could this be the problem?


Yes, this is very likely. The fan is made of plastic, because a metal fan would be so heavy that it would make the motor burn out unnecessarily fast. Sucking up things like loose change, pebbles, screws, etc. can crack the fan, and unfortunately this requires the front part of the motor to be disassembled. I'm pretty handy with Kirbys but I wouldn't attempt this type of repair myself. Best to leave it to a professional.

Do be sure to remove the em-tor unit (the plastic part that attaches to the blower in back) and check to make sure no large items are rattling around in there. Just unhook the bag clip from the handle, grasp the em-tor unit at the base and turn firmly but gently. When it pops off, all the things that were too heavy to get sucked upward into the bag will fall out. This might help, but it is not recommended to run a Kirby with a damaged fan. It is bad for the motor.

On turning on different noise then noticed smell of burning then just stopped working and no power since. DC 07 Dyson.


Unfortunately your motor had burnt up..most times this is due to not cleaning or replacing the filters...the filters get dirty and the motor gets no airflow to cool it....very common on dyson vacs

Kenmore upright vac model 33922 - good suction but developed loud whining noise after accidentally vacuuming room without bag. Added bag and changed both filters. Still makes noise. How can I stop noise?


The bag is the first stage in your filtration. Most times what you did will draw fine dust right through the filters and into the motor itself, affecting the bearings and clogging the motor fans, throwing them off balance.
The fact that there is a new noise would seem to indicate bearing problems which will only worsen unless the vac motor is dismantled, fans cleaned and bearings either replaced or cleaned and repacked.

Our vacuum bag was full and we keep on vacuuming. I believe some lent and hair got sucked into the vacuum motor. We've changed the bag and filters. Now the motor makes a loud noise especially when shutting...


Get a professional repairer to examine it. Even with an over-full bag, dirt will not have got in to the motor if the pre-motor filter was correctly positioned and in good condition. However, the motor may have been damaged through lack of air flow and consequent over-heating. Your machine may well need a new motor, and that's a job you won't be able to do for yourself.

Bag not filling-seems all the debris is going into the motor


Maybe your just a really clean person and have little dirt. If its picking up stuff and you dont see it it has to be going in the air or bag though. vacume in a room with sunshine comming in and see if you notice excess dust when you push/pull it. If no excessive (where it come out and you see it fall) it is going in the bag. If you see dirt falling all around these are the bigger particles and arnt going into the bag. Look for a place for the bag to be loose ot yjr plate it mounts to being loose.
let me know what you find. Please rate me as high as you can and thanks for using fix  ya.
