In most of the current model Shop Vacs, the motor is virtually the last thing that will come off the top of the vacuum itself. There are no repair parts available for the motors, but if it's under warranty, the company will send you a complete new power unit., motor and all. All you'd have to do is unpack it and install it on the tank.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are only 2 ways that I can think of in answer to your question. Either you can replace the fan impeller or you have to replace the entire motor. You would have to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Shop Vac factory @ the website or to call the factory @ the phone 3 listed below; or check your owner’s manual.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Does shopvac series 90ln have brushes in motor & how to replace them


A lot of shop vac motors have brushes, due to the motor's power needs. Unplug it (obv) and get to taking off all the covers until it's just you and the motor. On most shop vacs, you shouldn't need to remove the impeller (fan), and it's better just left alone. The brushes are usually just under spring tension.

Shop-Vac 6.0 hp Peak 12 Gallon 'Exploding' after 10 seconds of use. Happened twice on two different brand new Shop-Vacs.


Since you said you were sucking water out of a "trench" I would bet there was some debris in the trench that impacted the impeller on the vacuum and caused the metal impeller to fragment, taking the plastic pieces with it. It is highly unusual for this to occur on vacuums if some type of debris, such as a small stone or piece of metal does not reach the high speed impeller/fan. I suggest using either a foam sleeve over the filter cage, or an old nylon stocking if you can get one, to screen out the debris that will cause this condition.

My shop vac does not seem to have as much pick up power as it once did. It will not even pick up small debris and paper.


Turning the unit on with the motor NOT inserted into the "can" do you see the impeller moving? Should be connected to the drive of the motor one way or another. Check for debris on both ends of the motor shaft to be sure the motor is moving freely. If possible, hit both ends with some WD 40 to reduce friction. Be sure the hose is clear. I push a broom handle through mine from time to time to see if there is anything clogging it. Tear in the hose or in the couplings? Tape or replace. When was the last time you replaced or cleaned the filter?

My Hoover upright vacuum has gotten very loud. I have checked the roller, belts and hoses but I haven't found anything. What could the problem be? thanks


Most Hoover uprights are a "fan first" design, meaning that all dirt enters the motor , hits an impeller fan and is blown from there into the bag. You will need to open the vac, remove the belt and two C shaped clamps holding the motor in place and remove the 4 screws holding the fan cover. Look for a broken or damaged blade on the fan. It is a threaded fan and can be purchased at most vac shops. Reassemble in opposite order.

Where can I find a part for my BV2000 in house vac? It is the smallest unit made by M S & S Systems in Dallas TX. The suction impeller is grinding in it's housing, so I need a motor/suction pump. I...


you will have to replace the whole motor as these motors where never made to be serviceable. if you take the motor to a local vacuum shop than can order you a new one. though i would recomend replacing the whole tank unit with a Nutone or Hayden they are far better systems.

Burned out motor on QPL625 Shop Vac


well if you can find the motor ( find a place that deals with the manufacturer directly so you get the right part ) and it isnt to expensive, most shop vacs are pretty easy, if you look under the top you should see about four screws, remove those and the top should come of giving you access to the motor, take note about the wires and what they hook up to. i doubt the motor is fastend down other than that.

Has no suction


I just went through the same thing.  Your fan or impeller is probably broken off the shaft and no longer on the motor shaft.  My local repair shop wants $9 for the impeller and $29 to replace it. You will have to take the thing apart and put on a new fan or impeller blade and I'm still trying to do that to my vac.  I think I will have to heat the nylon impeller with a hair dryer to get it onto the shaft and then tighten the left hand nut. My vac is held together with torx screws so add a torx screwdriver to the price if you don't have one and want to do the job yourself.
