SOURCE: I need replacement carbon brushes for the motor. I haven't been able to find a source.

Try looking for a power tool repair shop, they usually have some brushes and can order more. I have put Hoover brushes in my Shop-Vac.
Look for some that are close to matching,( spring size,spring length, brush length). If the brushes are a little large they can be made smaller by dragging on a flat file. Carefully fit them so they slide into the brushholder nicely.
I have even soldered different ends onto the pigtails, whatever works----I am a pragmatist!
You could also look for an electric motor repair shop in your area- they have suppliers.

The brushes don't spin


first a measure from the the electronic-modul/switch its good to measure first there if thats ok then there could be an autostop protection spring activated in one of the 2 carbon brushes comes out and pushed the carbonbrush a little distance from the collectors the commutator circuit is then interrupted thereby to protect the armature collectors before the long spring behind the brushes comes against the collectors therefore a little spring that is to see out in the front of one of the carbon brushes then replace the brushes. measure between the 2 brushholders if there is no resistance to measure then replace the brushes. if there is resistance then measure switch but it could also be an phase break in the power cable

Motor smells hot after 5 minutes. Brand new exhaust filter turns black


First - stop using the machine! The black material in the exhaust filter is carbon dust from the carbon brushes in the motor. The fact that the motor quickly smells hot and is shedding so much carbon indicates that the carbon brushes are worn to their limit (or damaged). They need replacing. Don't use the machine again until the new carbon brushes are in place or you risk causing irreparable damage and will be in line for a costly new motor. Carbon brushes are usually not expensive but, depending on your expertise, you may need someone to fit them for you.
You don't tell us the make or model of your vacuum so that's about all I can say. Good luck.

How to change carbon brushes


You need to know that very seldom will new carbon brushes alone `FIX`a motor in todays vacuums as they are higher RPM than those of 30 years ago.
On a salvageable motor a good rebuild procedure will generally include repacking bearings, cleaning suction fans and reseating new brushes with an abrasive seating stone at low speed with a motor run in device with variable voltage

That said, I have not done a HENRY in years but it likely will contain a generic AMTEK Lamb type motor as it is sold as more durable vac.
On a traditional vac motor, carbon brushes are removed by releasing a clamp over the brush. The brush holder will have either a flag terminal on it where the wiring will disconnect from the side, or a flat flag terminal which slides into a pocket on the carbon brush housing.
. If you are going to the trouble of replacing the brushes, remove and inspect the old ones for wear and chipping. Also inspect the commutator surface on the motor where the brushes contact. If there are any curved gaps between segments, or if the com is worn like an apple core , you need a motor complete.
If the motor has simply worn to the point where a brush has stuck or worn to nothing, you may be bale to reseat the new brushes, however any evidednce of BLUE sparks or noise is not a good sign . Best of luck. Post back if you need more help

Carbon motor brush source?


unfortunatly the only way you could purchase the carbon brushes is from a vacuum parts dealer directly. the brushes will most likely end up costing you close toth price of a new motor anyway. sometimes its best to just get a new motor as the newer designes rotate teh brush much faster for better cleaning.

How to change carbon brushes in Vax 2000


Bend back the three tabs and cut off the contact wire as close to the top tab as possible. You can then pull the brush (or what is left of it) out. The new brushes have a brass plate the same size as the brush opening. The connection wire that you cut away on the original brush is attached to this plate so you don't have to solder the connection. Push the new brush into the holder (you might have to file the carbon slightly to get it in). Then you have to compress the spring so that it all fits into the brush holder (this is difficult) once this is in keep the sping compressed with a small screw driver or other small tool, and bend the three tabs back over the brass plate to hold it in place. This is tricky but can be done.

Good armature maybe needs new brushes


You can replace the carbon brushes and most repair shops should have them. Also tho, the armature could be causing the problem, if you put in new brushs and it still arcs badly, then the armature is bad.
