Can I reset the canister motor?

A bag exploded in the canister and the motor stopped. I cleaned out the motor and all filters and foam around the motor. Can I reset the motor so it will start as it is not.

SOURCE: problem with motor; need to open the motor compartment

This may help. My Kenmore is ten years old. I found two screws under the hinges of the cover to the tool accessory compartment. Remove cover screws are in the corners. The other two I found are under the cord return foot pad. Pad pops off by prying up. I hope I explained it so you will beable to understand..

SOURCE: Smoke coming out of my Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model 22550300C

Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./

I suggest you to buy a new vacuum.

SOURCE: Kenmore 25614/25615 Progressive bagged canister vac won't start

sounds like there was a loose connection or loose wire that came in contact with another wire. check your cord for small burn holes, also could have shorted out in the hose or the wand. If you are comfortable to disassemble the vacuum i can walk you through the troubleshooting process so we can find out what actually went bad. id start with the cord though. let me know if you have any questions or need more assistance

The canister motor will not come on but the power mate motor does. Is there a reset button/circuit breaker for the canister motor? There was a clog but that has been resolved. Bag and filters are new.


There is no reset button. You've fried the motor. If both the power nozzle and canister motor didn't work, one might suspect a fuse.

When using a bag inside shop vac, do I still need to cover the motor with foam & paper & ring or can I leave those off?


Keep it on. The purpose is to give you something to clean, a time or two, rather than have to replace the more expensive filter. I know it seems redundant, but all of the pieces filter better than just a bag. Also, if the bag gets any damp or wet material, it breaks and your next filters are the foam and paper filter.

Replaced the motor but didn,t take notice where the pieces of foam go back in around the motor


The foam collar wraps around the outside of the fan end of the motor. It's a anti-vibration piece.

Dirt is being trapped in the filter area instead of canister.


The canister has a filter as well. It needs to be replaced or cleaned. A damaged canister filter will feed dirt into the HEPA filter. (and the motor)
An improperly installed filter can allow dirt to bypass the canister filter and collect in the HEPA filter.
I suggest a new canister filter and then clean it carefully every week.
Here is a list of the filters for your vacuum.

Dyson DC07 Vacume cleaner trips on thermal after 10 min motor not excesive hot resets after 15 min has been doing this for the last 3 mths. Could it be faulty thermal or motor overheat how can I check...


first, check both filters on that unit. the premotor filter on the side, and the hepa filter underneath the canister. if those filters are clean move through the suction channel and look for a clog or obstruction. also make sure the canister is clean. I have never seen the thermal go bad on those machines (not saying it cant happen though). it sounds like the filters are dirty or you have a clog. its also a good idea to change the pre motor filter if its older than a yr. the foam is fine but the white material behind the foam gets clogged frequently. let me know if you have any other questions and if this doesnt fix the problem.

Shuts off after a minute or so and comes back on and shuts down in 20 seconds


Sounds like it is over heating do to a dirty filter. Or there is something blocking the air flow in the vacuum.

My canister machine kicks off immediately after starting and bag full light goes on but it has a new bag


hi from uk your problem with vac may be the gauze filter on the inside of the compartment that has bag this filter there to allow air from the micro pores of the bag to expel to the exterior of vac (room) whilst preventing dust from expelling too ? normally another symptom of this is the vac cover sometimes flips up ? however if air cannot expel from compartment it will cause overheat of motor resulting in auto cut off but will reset when cooled SO check the filter gauze and renew or wash clean? hope you understand above and hope this helps ?

Hoover mach 3 cyclone vacuum shut off during useage. can't turn it on. cleaned it out and let it sit thinking overheated? this is 2 months old. help?


I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.
