Re: 12 amp motor smoking

If the smoke is coming from the motor and I assume that it is, then your motor has gone bad and you will have to replace it.

I was using my steam vac and it blew out smoke and quick sucking anything up. i have taken everything I can find off and can't figure out what the problem is. I have the F5915900.

Hi well usually any "Smoke" that comes from a device such as this, it is from the Motor, i suspect that the motor has burnt out? That is usualy what it is when they are bought to my shop anyway?

You will need to take this unit to a repair center and ask for a "Quote", it maybe that this device is an uneconomic repair?
