Although the way you worded the questions suggests a wood shop problem, it is listed under vacuum cleaners.
I will speak to the planer being a wood shop machine.
I'd start by checking the dust collector for suction.
If it draws strongly, then perhaps you need to design a "chute" to cause the chips to go to the collector.
Perhaps a "rake" would be in order to move the chips neared the collector.
A rake nothing more than a broomstick with a flat board fastened to the end.
God bless your efforts.
If the vaccuum was used with large amount of fine dust , most times the filters are largely shut beaten ,beware also of the electric field look its color to get a indication of the expectation of the remaining running time of the motor. 80% chance by use of fine dust the motor can better be replaced instead of replace brushes because the brushes are in a short time again shorted because of 1 collector in the armature , or get an equivalent motor if you can get FIXAPART motor or a original replacement if the remainder is still in reasonable condition.
Some brands of vaccuums uses the same motor could be sometimes an option because of the price.
I've literally disassembled the ENTIRE vacuum. I got it for a dollar at the local goodwill with the intent on converting it into a dust collector for my mini workshop. As others have said. The suction is abysmal. I don't think it could beat a dust vac. And that's with just the motor hooked to dirt collector. No brush, no belt, no carpet adjusting. Just a motor, dirt collector and hose. Zero suction. Removed the hose, zero suction. Remove the dirt collector, solid suction. Dunno if the dirt collector is missing a part, but I doubt that based on other replies. I'm guessing all the holes in the red tube of top chamber are the issue. But I can't easily access it. I think I may end up cutting it open to try plugging some holes or some other modifications. But this vac is garbage in its original configuration
SHORT carbon BRUSHES in the motor look on one of the two brushes the autostop protection protrudes at the front of the brush out. replace not direct the brushes , look for a healthy brass-colored wire of the stator field and armature if its dark beware of a short time of pleasure if the collectors are damaged if the engine has had its operating hours because of heating by fine dust cocked filters by time new brushes can have be shorted in a very short time again , and therfore is a brushes replace to expensive .
or a electric field contact a little change if its not a defect collector in the armature turn the motor a little on the top fan and switch the vaccuum on replace the motor if its run with bad noise replace the motor directly by a equivalent FIXAPART brand or any good equivalent , differs on the age of the whole vaccuum what the customer preferred.
Take off the dust collector , put the machine somehwere out in the open air and switch it on if the motor runs up to speed then the probelm is inside the dust collector and it is probably a blocked hepa filter
If the motor does not run clean with the dust collector removed then you need to remove the base plate and check for blockages there
IS THE BASE OF THE WASTE BIN ATTACHED OR HAS IT SNAPPED OFF?THE BASE OF THE WASTE BIN JUST CLIPS BACK ON THE ONE END SO THAT IT CAN SWING.IF HOWEVER THE BASE IS ATTACHED BUT WONT STAY SHUT OR LOCK THEN ITS POSSIBLE THE LATCH INSIDE THE CYCLONE HAS SNAPPED OFF.IF ANY " DIRT CHEAP " ( EXCUSE THE PUNN )SPARE PARTS AR REQUIRED THEN PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME DIRECT: DYSONLOGISTICS@AOL.COM
hi this sound like a familiar problem of the motor o/heating due to lack of ventilation ? check the filters ok? remove the cover concealing the roller brush/beater and check for clogging at the underneath and housing clear it out properly easier to remove/lift out roller ? also clear out the clear bucket dust collector and most important the cone that fits into this canister has a cylindrical honeycombed/small holes(looks like hundreds? ) use a small pointed impliment to poke out all!!these holes as these are relative to vacuum within cylinder so if not clear ? motor no vent and result is no/poor vac and o/heat then thermo switch kicks in and shuts down till motor cools hope this helps best wishes from uk
