Question about Vacuums
I have an original electrolux 725 vacuum which was great up until a year ago. I had the cord fixed because it had pulled out too far and at the time the guy said something about the ball bearings. I didn't understand at the time that I would have to replace the motor soon. It did blow up a month or so later so I had the guy put in a new motor. It had a 12 month warranty and true to form, at 13 months I decided to use a powerhead for hair in the carpet and the motor blew up and at the same time blew the fuse in my flat.
Are the new motors just not as good as the originals (always seems to be the way) since the original worked for 25years without a problem then a new motor lasted just over a year or is there a good quality motor I can have fitted and if so, how much should it cost and where can I get it done? (i live on the gold coast) I love the old 725 but this is a pain!
Are you sure that the vacuum motor went bad? If it did, then if would just have to be replace again. Doubt that you would find a different motor other then what belongs in there. If you did it would have to the right size to mount right. Some motors will last a long time while others just don't and you never know how long a one will last. Maybe the power head is what caused your present problem.

Unfortunately the only way to clear the roller is painfully clipping and pulling. If you do happen to remove the roller, it's really alot of trouble to put it all back together.
