Looking for Replacement Motor for Bosch Ultra 1450W Canister Vacuum

It appears the mote on this vacuum has blown out the bearings - it shakes and rattles a lot and there were BB-sized ball bearings inside the canister housing the motor. I've been looking online for somewhere Imight get a replacement motor, or compatible model, without any luck so far.

  1. Can I confirmany way that the bearings are the problem.If so,is this repairable itself?
  2. If not repairable, is there a source for a replacement motor?
  3. If I cannotget a Bosch motor, isit likely I could fit it with a compatible motor from another manufacturer, and, if so, which one?

If you are finding BB's. then the bearings are bad. You could pull the motor and take it to a place that rebuilds motors to see about replacing the bearings. If it is a Lamb or amtec motor, there is a number stamped on it, you can match up another motor with that number. Go to a place that sells Vacuum repair parts and they maybe able to get you a new motor.

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.

Brush does not turn on my vaccum

If there is no suction when you disconnect the beater bar assembly near the hand hold where you grab the vacuum, then there may be either a restriction in the vacuum line between there and the vacuum section (that rolls around behind you), or the vacuum line from the handle point to the rollaround section is not properly connected. This all assumes the vacuum motor in the rollaround is running.

The beater bar section does nothing but cause dirt particles to be sucked into the vacuum system. The vacuum or suction is created in the rollaround unit.
