Is there a fuse or circuit braker in a sunline SM-G31 grinder?

Hate to say it but I fear the windings have burnt and is in need of repair. Any burning smell or smell of heating is most of the time directly related to armature or burnt brushes. If this grinder suits your needs having it rewound would be profitable.

Why doesn't my vacumm floor piece work?

Not sure which unit you have but normal repairs would be to the wiring of the floor fixture and to check to see that the beater brush is turning properly. If the brush is not turning it could be a broken belt or the fact that the beater brush is frozen. Remove the brush and clean as best you can, paying close attention to the plastic holders at each end of the beater brush. Squirt a bit of WD40 into the space between the plastic and the beater brush and rotate by hand to make sure it is free. Reassemble and put in a new belt just in case.
Please contact me if you have any questions. Paul

Brushes aren't turning on Bissell Proheat 2X and it is almost new.

New or old,flip the vacumm over,and remove the long hair and debris from the roller brushes. If they don't spin after removing any debris,the
belt,that turns the brushes has come off,or the motor is bad. You wil
have to take the bottom section apart,to see what's going on,then.
Good luck.

Looks like there's an interchanged wires in your vacuum. Both the motor and the powerhead must go together. Check it up. Leave the
motor wiring connection intact. Just tinker and check the powerhead
wiring connection .

Shopvac motor not working

Then the motor brushes may be worn, or a winding is open circuit. Sears is pretty good at replacement parts, and they probably can supply just the motor assembly.

Brushes not spinning after change out

I got my brushes spinning by moving them while the unit was running. For mine it seems that they got stuck from sitting. The brushes move from the air driven motor unit. This works from the vacumm that is being put through the machine. I just spun the brushes while the unit was turned on. Don't get your fingers caught.
