Removing obstruction from vacuum motor

Hello, I would appreciate advice on how to take apart my vacuum cleaner to remove a bolt that I believe is stuck in the motor or belt inside the casing. When the vacuum cleaner is turned there is a loud grinding noise and a burning smell. 
Thank you!

There should be 2 screws on the top of the base.that will take the cover off remove the belt and on each side of the motor there are 1 or 2 screws that hold the motor onto the base,remove those and you should be able to lift the top half of the vacuum off the base,you will be at the motor.look on the end where the fan is and see if you can spot the bolt that stuck in there.try to turn the fan till its moves a little freely then shake the motor and maybe it will fall out.if its there it should be at the fan

Most Eureka's, there are 2 or 3 screws on the top to remove, then the top cover will come off. If no screws on top. then they are on the bottom. After the top is off, the belt and brush are right there in the open. To get to the motor, that off the 2 screws on the clamp on wach side of the motor, screws that are around the motor housing and then the motor cover should pull off. If the smell is electrical, if could be a bad motor, which sells for around $75 to $90. If the smell is more like rubber, then look at the belt and brush roll. If you need more info, get the model # off of the tag.

The motorized brush on my DC35 no longer turns. I cleaned the debris from the brush but it still won't turn. The belt is in great shape but the gear is physically hard to turn. How do I fix it?


After removing the screw in the centre of the brush bar drive gear, gently lever the gear away which will reveal a possible build up of hair behind.

Why does my dyson power head keep shutting off


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your Dyson vacuum is DC23 Motorhead, you should be able to resolve this by checking for and removing any obstructions from the cleaner head, and removing any threads or hair from the brush bar and endcaps. Our Support video will walk you through the process:

Loss of suction and sounds like motor is juddering after a few seconds use


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

A pulsating sound from the motor, along with a loss of pick-up performance, will be due to a blockage somewhere in the machine - in the cleaner head, in the wand, or in the bin inlet. For help checking for this and removing any obstructions, please take a look at our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc35/dc35-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/check-wand


You may also want to take a look at the video below for guidance on removing any threads, hair or other obstructions from the brush bar and cleaner head.
I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but for any further assistance please give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

I'm looking for CV1801 Vacuum Motor, Greator Toronto... Thanks


Hello There,

I've looked up your model vacuum cleaner, and it seems that I am able to still get this motor for your Eureka central vacuum cleaner. We're located in the United States, but we can certainly ship this to you.

Here's a picture of the diagram for you;

vacuumrepair_1.jpg
We sell the genuine Eureka motor for $199.00, however you may save substantially on this motor by purchasing it under the Lamb Electric name. The motors are identical, and Lamb actually makes this motor for Electrolux, and sells the replacement parts for MUCH less money they Electrolux. We sell the motor under the Lamb name for $119. I went ahead and added this part to our site so you could place your order if you wanted to. I don't have it in stock today, but my parts distributor is showing 3 in stock, so we can easily have your order shipped out within 2-4 business days.

Here's the link to the Eureka CV1801 Central Vacuum Cleaner motor, Part number 54586;
http://www.govacuum.com/10661-Eureka-Central-Vacuum-Cleaner-Suction-Motor-Assembly-Part-54586-.aspx

Hopefully this was helpful to you. I've also left you a link below to the parts diagram of your vacuum cleaner, in case you need some visual help to see how it comes apart. If you found this repair to be helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful, or leave feedback for me. I really do appreciate it, and this also helps people with the same question find the answers easier. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at chris (dot) jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

Took apart my electrolux 6500 sr. How do I get my fan shroud off to clean the blades? Thank you.


Oops. Don't. First blow it out with another canister vacuum or air hose. That's usually sufficient for removing dirt and dust. For dust/dirt in the motor, use a motor cleaning spray that can be picked up at most auto parts stores. One that evaporates quickly and doesn't leave a sticky residue. One's called Electric Motor Contact Cleaner by Gunk (http://www.gunk.com/CAT_NM1.asp). There are others.
Hobby shops may also have one available called Dynamite Magnum Force 2 Motor Spray.
It shouldn't be that dirty unless someone has been using generic "made to fit" Electrolux bags. Or if water or other liquid has been vacuumed, resulting in rust, etc.

Keep in mind that reassembling the vacuum is more difficult than taking it apart. If not done so correctly, various problems may result. While you have it apart, it would probably be a good idea to use pipe cleaners to clean out the tubes connectiong the "control valve assembly" to other parts of the vacuum. Also, unscrew the knob at the top of the "cva" to check for wear and breaks. Clean dust thoroughly from all interior parts.

Model 116 Kenmore vacuum cleaner. 20+ years old,


Greetings,

I believe that this is probably a Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner, but I can't be positive. The model number 116 is just the first part, and all Sears vacuum cleaners start with model 116. There is a . after the 116 that will identify the vacuum. If you'd like me to be more model specific, or if this is an upright vacuum, please just request a clarification and I can take pictures even for you.

If this is a canister style vacuum, then you'll need to remove the foot pedal that rewinds the cord reel. There are 2 or 3 (depending on which model you have) hidden screws underneath of this pedal. You may simply pry off the pedal using a flat head screw driver. Also when you have the bag door open, you may just pull forward while it's open, and this will remove the bag door housing. There should be two screws in the front of the motor housing that need to be removed as well.

My guess from the age of the vacuum that's probably the motor that's gone. If this is the case, you probably can still get a motor if you'd like to just replace the motor inside, rather then buying a new vacuum. Typical Sears Kenmore canister motors sell for 79-120 dollars.

Again, I'd be happy to try and help you further, I will just need the entire model number after the 116. to know which vacuum you have.

If this was helpful, please click the 4 thumbs up icons in the top of the page. Thank you,

Chris J.

I am trying to take my Philips vision 8731 vacuum cleaner apart because a heap of c*** got sucked into the motor when the bag was not put in correctly. I have removed all visible screws but cannot for the life of me find how the wheel end comes apart. Any tips?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I believe the part you are taking about is the fan and the fans generally are installed by a reverse thread and screws off counter clock wise. Once you removed the fan or the wheel you can use a blower and blow the motor clean, remove the carbon brushes and use a pipe cleaner to clean out the carbon brush holders and then re-install. Also free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages under vacuums.
