Upon powering up suction is low. Needs to be primed with hand on hose intake; then full suction comes back.


Turn the vacuum on without the hose.If this continues the motor may need armature brushes or the motor itself may be burned out...motors are not too expensive,I usually put "Lamb" motors in for around 139.00....Chris

Burning smell Kenmore 50558


If the burning smell is an electrical smell it could be motor or wiring problems which are best handled by a professional. If it smells like burning rubber it is probably the belt. If it smells like burnt wood it could be the belt slipping on the brush roll, if the brush roll is made of wood. Dust and debris can also accumulate behind the end caps of the brush roll causing friction which can cause a burning wood smell.

Carbon brushes on ME-48 power head motor worn out. Where can I get replacement brushes? Motor is O 90197X7, Lamb, Model 118173-73 - 240V 50/60Hz


Hi Les,

Most sites sell only the motor.
Here's a website that includes motor brushes: http://www.kleen-ritecorp.com/search.aspx?IsSubmit=true&searchTerm=lamb+motor&gclid=CIbZ59zwiKgCFQprKgod8W2itQ

Hope you can find the right brushes.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Work well but smell like a burning belt


If it smells like burning rubber, the belt is probably worn and slipping. If it's another burning smell, your motor windings are probably shorting and will burn out soon

Burning smell from motor


Hi,
Check your filter and also check that nothing got pulled into the motor...otherwise the motor is burning up and will need to be replaced... probably cheaper to replace the whole vacuum..

My filterqueen majestic is 10yrs old and just started to spark and smell of burning ive took it apart


If you have a burning smell from the motor, your motor is shot. You should be able to buy anew AMTEK Lamb motor for about $85-110 US. Request a double ball bearing motor as it will have a longer life span.
Also buy a fresh internal filter kit. There will be a small 5 .5 inch filter disc inside the cone protecting the motor in the event that the cone tears. Replace it .Also save and reinstall the small insulating disc that sits between the top of your motor and the screen at the top of the vac. This is to prevent electric shock. This disc is the size of a coin.
Post back if you need more help. Wiring is very easy. Do NOT twist your wires before installing into the connectors, twist the connectors, then tape to be certain they are on tight.

Eureka canister vacuum cleaner Model 6865


The 6865 has a high rpm AMTEK Lamb motor, Brushes will seldom solve the problem at this stage.
Once the sparking and burning starts the conectiion between the brush and commutator is arcing and burning. If the sparks are blue, save your time.
A good service tech will run in brushes with a seating stone and a low voltage setup to allow new brushes to seat, but this is generally best accomplished on heavy duty , lower rpm motors.
IF YOUR ARMATURE IS SCRATCHY LOOKING OR WORN LIKE AN APPLE CORE,OR THE SEGMENTS ARE NOT PARALLEL IN THE SPACING YOU WILL NEED A NEW MOTOR.

Sebo x1.1 - burning smell


Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.

Burning Smell


Check the carbon motor brushes, there might be arcing on the armature. New brushes may help if the armature is ok.
