My eg2800 generator is putting out 150 volts, why


Loaded circuit or open circuit? If loaded, brushes need cleaning before buying parts. Check manual for procedure on your model. The brushes are usually culprit. Make sure cleaned and tension springs are free. Use compressed air to clean out armature area where brushes located. Re install and test. If better but not fixed replacement brushes may be needed. If open ckt voltage is high this could be normal. Suggest you email product support to be sure.

Need brushes for model 9531 buffer


I am in the business of repairing and rebuilding power tools and none of my brand name parts suppliers nor any of the sites I use to get off brand parts have your brushes available. I did find a part number 136506-02 that was replaced by part number 135948-03 but it shows it as a brush holder/brush assembly. My only suggestion is to find a tool repair center, ask if they have a stock of brushes and try to find a brush that will work in your holder. On many an occasion I have shaved the sides of brushes to make them fit into older model tools. You just have to be sure the top connector is compatable with your holder.

first unplug the tool, next on the backside you will notice a screw, remove it and slide the cover back to expose the backside of the motor. gently move the springs that hold the brushes tight to the side and remove the brushes and replace. Make sure to replace the springs and then slide the cover back into place and replace the screw and that should take care of your problem.

Sourcing motor brushes for E675 jazzy motor?


Hi Lane. What happened to your old brushes?
Be carefull fitting different brushes to your machine. If you do, make sure that the brushes you use are also for a 24 volt DC motor. Different voltage motors have different types of material used for the brushes, they can damsge your commutator if you use the wrong ones.
If you find some that are slightly to big, it is Ok to carefully file them down to size.
Contact a local service agent, they often have used brushes that still have a bit of life in them.
I often use brushes from one brand in other brands of machine, and have used brushes as well, but we are probably too far away in New Zealand.
Good luck. Neil.

5 BRUSHES DO NOT ROTATE WHEN IN CONTACT WITH CARPET


HI There,

When the brushes on a Hoover SteamVac stop spinning, it can be caused by several things. The most frequent problem is that there is debris in the brushes such as pet hair, or lint, that prevents the brushes from spinning. Usually if you remove the brushes and clean them thoroughly, this will fix the problem. This sounds to me like what is the problem on your machine, as you make it seem as if the brushes spin, but only stop spinnning when you put them down on the carpeting.

The brushes on your Hoover are driven by a turbine brush gear assembly, not a belt. Sometimes this part can go bad, but usually when it does, the brushes won't spin at all, even when they are not on carpeting.

Anyways, here a helpful guide that I've done that shows you step by step how you can diagnosis the problem with your brushes:

First, what you'll need to do is take the brush block out of the machine. To do this there are 4 clips on the brush block. You will need to turn the machine upside down, and pull down on the brush block to where it won't pull out any farther. There are 4 clips, 2 on top, and 2 on the rear of the brushes. (See picture I have circled one of the clips in red). Simply press these clips at the same time, and pull the brush block out of the machine.

I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. If the cleaning still fails to fix the problem, take the brushes back out of the machine.

Now look at the brush stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. Make sure that the plastic has not broken.

If the pole has broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block. If the pole is not damaged, the next thing to try is to turn the machine on while you have the brushes out. Look inside the machine, where the pole goes into the turbine (also important, make sure the switch for the brushes is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi), this female receptacle should spin when the machine is turned on. It is important the try this when the foot pedal is released, and the handle down, and not in the upright position, as there is an internal switch that shuts the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position.

If you notice that the female receptacle where the brush pole is inserted is spinning, then your turbine is fine. If this part is not spinning, then most likely you will need to replace your turbine.

If you find that your turbine needs to be replaced, I have written a step by step guide that shows you each step on how to replace your brush turbine gear. Here's a link to that repair if you need to do it:

The brushes won't turn on my hoover steam vac dual v


Hi There,

Unfortunately the answer above is far from helpful. The filter has absolutely nothing to do with your brushes not spinning, and you can really replace the turbine yourself without having to take it into a shop to fix it. Here's a much more helpful diagnosing of how to check the brushes, and fix the turbine if needed.

There can be serveral things that may have gone wrong with your Hoover so that the brushes stop spinning. Unlike the other "expert" above I will walk you through step by step on how to diagnosis this problem, and fix it. Unfortunately there is no belt or band on this model, but instead it's actually a turbine assembly that drives this brush.

Possible Problem #1. Usually the most common problem when the brushes stop spinning is that the brushes have simply gotten clogged with something that is preventing them from spinning. Especially if you have pets in the home, this is a common problem. Here's how you can clean these brushes.

First, turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. Pull down on the upwards on the brushes and they will easily snap right out of the mahcine completely. . Use a pressurized water hose with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. It's important to make sure that the brush switch on the top of the machine is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi", and that the handle of the machine is reclined down. There is an internal switch inside the machine that turns the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position, so you'll need to step on the handle release pedal to ensure that this switch is engaged. Hopefully the brushes just needed to be cleaned, and they will now work now that you have reinserted them. If this still didn't fix your problem, move on to the next possible problem.

Possible problem #2: If the cleaning didn't fix your problem, remove the brushes from the machine again. Once the brushes have been removed, the handle reclined, and the brush switch turned to fast, turn the machine on. Where the brushes were sitting you'll see a square shaped hole (pictured below) that the brush stem fits into that actually spins the brushes. This part should be spinning while the machine is on. Here's a picture of that part:


232c8b0.jpg

If this part is not spinning, then your Turbine Gear Assembly has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If this part spins however, then this indicates that your brush block is gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

Here are links to the exact parts for your model that may need to be replaced:

Here's also a link to a Fixya repair solution that I've done explaining step by step how to replace the turbine gear:

hi Many universal motor malfunctions are caused by wearing down of the carbon brushes, the soft blocks of carbon that complete the electrical contact to the motor's commutator. When these brushes become worn, the motor will spark, and electrical contact may be incomplete.try this
Step 1: To sight-check the carbon brushes, remove the screws that hold the brushes and brush springs into the brush holders at the sides of the commutator. The screws will pop out of the screw holes; turn the motor over to tap out the brushes. The ends of the brushes should be curved to fit the commutator; if they're worn down, new brushes are needed.
Step 2: To check carbon brushes with a continuity tester, remove the motor lead wires from the circuit. Tag the wires as you disconnect them so that you'll be able to reconnect them properly. Hook the tester clip to one motor lead and touch the probe to the other lead; the tester should light or buzz. Slowly rotate the motor shaft, keeping the tester in position. If the tester doesn't light or buzz, or if it flickers or stutters when you turn the motor shaft, the brushes should be replaced. If the springs behind the brushes are damaged, they should be replaced as well.

Step 3: Replace worn carbon brushes and damaged springs with new ones made specifically for the motor. The model information (number and make) is stamped on a metal plate fastened to the motor, or embossed on the metal housing of the motor. If you can't find the model information, take the worn brushes and springs with you to an appliance-parts store to make sure you get the right kind. Insert the new springs and brushes in the brush holders, replace the brush assemblies, and secure the new brushes with the mounting screws that held the old brushes.
