Hello. I need help, please. I have a Gemmy Brutus Buckeye made in March 2005. The motor quit working. Does it have a fuse and, if so, where?

    I took off the cover on the side of the plastic base. It was screwed on similar to the battery area on toys. I thought there might be a fuse there. However, it just looks like where the wires were connected and a clean plastc cap over each of the 2 connections - one for the motor and one for the lights.
    It had been working fin and then al of a sudden it just quit!

If your Model has a fuse it will be located on the electrical cord. There is a small sliding panel on the plug itself, (part that plugs into the wall outlet). There should also be an extra fuse located within the same compartment.
It is the only fuse location I am aware of.
If you find that your motor is bad don't bother trying to acquire a replacement from Gemmy. For a replacement you will need to go to www.holidayinflatablestore.com or you can sometimes find them on Ebay.
Hope this helps.

Hello. I had a Brutus and enjoyed it immensely. There is no fuse and the motor is not built to last. The motor can be replaced but by the time you pay shipping to and from, plus for the part and the labor you will be money ahead to just go out and get a new one. Go Buckeyes!

I can not tell you where the fuse is, but if you take a look, follow the motor leads to the power supply and look there for a fuse. If the fuse checks good, it could be the controller or the motor. Do you have any way of checking for power? The motor has brushes that could be worn. On the sides of the motor there are two little black caps with slots in the top. Use a screw driver and open them and pull the brush out. It's got a spring on the end hooking to the carbon brush. As long as you see 'carbon brush' material maybe 1/2" long it's okay.

    Are the lights working at all? Can you check the voltage at the battery?

Hi, unfortunately Gemmy Industries does not sell replacement motors for their inflatable products. However, motors can be purchased at www.holidayinflatablestore.com. Although Gemmy cannot provide any support to assist you in the process, Gemmy understand that collectors of the product have been able to take care of their replacement needs by purchasing older, inexpensive units from E-bay and then transferring the parts to the newer model.

You are still in the warrranty period of one year and it is most adviceable not to tamper it so as to lose the priviledge.
So please get in touch immediatley with your dealer.
Only If there is no help do you need to open the base and check the leads from plug to the motor for continuity. if voltage is present then motor may be faulty.
