Hi
Yes you could order a replacement ..BUT.. you will need the right tools.
Also the wiring is not that simple... you will have to know the wiring color codes....
It is usually NOT a good idea to do this yourself unless you know a little of mechanics and electronics.
Regards
Berry

Bag needed changing there was no burn ing smell or strange noises before i changed bag after bag was changed it wouldnt start. the cord is new no fraying and vac is about 5 years old. didn


I'm not real experienced with this model vac, but I do know that many of the newer vac's are being manufactured with a small button or lever, whatever the particular brand of vac decides would best fit on their unit, that would be located somewhere around the edge of the bag door opening and would need to be depressed by having a bag inside in order for the machine to run. I would check for something of this nature to be sure that during the bag change that you didn't just miss putting it in quite right to depress the go button. Other than that, it's entirely possible that the switch died. If that's the case you'll need to bring it in to a vac repair shop for help.

Central vac system is 18 years old. Recently started to shut down during vacuuming. Motor may be over heating. Electrolux has been out and is pushing a new system but not sure if it is necessary.


The motor can be replaced for a lot less than the cost of a new machine. A new motor comes with a one year warranty if installed by the service tech. A new CV unit alone may be over three times as much, but does have a five year warranty.
At 18 years, there are other things that could be getting worn out as well. If you happen to need to replace them over the next year or two, then you would have been better off getting a new machine. Just the motor and hose can be over $600. Add the power module, power nozzle or parts, and wands, and the costs can end up being over $1000. So take a look at the hose and accessories. If they show a lot of wear and tear, then it might be better to replace the whole thing. A new machine carries a five year warranty, which also covers accessories.
Also, have you notice a loss of suction? This usually results from a worn out, leaky hose, and with a 30 foot hose can result in a tremendous loss of suction.
Just take all things into consideration.
Personally, I'd recommend a new canister vacuum. Depending on the model, they come with a five to twenty year warranty, with five on the accessories from the hose down.

You are correct, the motor is done. Look at your local vac store for a quality vacuum made by Sebo or Miele. Replacing motors in chinese made vacs is a waste of money as the whole product was made to last only a couple of years

Shop Vac just stopped


If you remove the motor, you will see that the wires that go from the switch to the brushes. On one side there is one wire connected directly to the brush. On the other side the wire goes to a plastic plug with a second wire going to the brush. This is probably where the problem is. This is a fusible link and it has most likely melted creating an open in the circuit. I put a piece of solder where the link was and the motor ran BUT the brushed arced like a sparkler. Upon further examination the brushes were crumbling apart. I have been unable to find replacement brushes.
This machine has a five year warranty. I called Shop Vac Customer Service 1-888-822-4644 and they sent me a new motor.
I had a Shop Vac QL50EIC which had exactly the same problem but the warranty was expired so that I had to buy another motor for about $50.

My old Tristar canister vac.


If you have a voltage meter you could see where the problem lies. All TriStar parts including the motors, both the nozzle head motor and the actual vacuum motor are purchaseable online through www.totalvac.com
I have ordered parts through them and everything arrives no problem and they are priced nicely by the way.

Dyson upright


hi this is an expensive repair and would probably be cheaper to buy new one the problem you have is with the motor bearings seizing its expensive to repair because when dyson made thes vacs they were made so you need special tool to take them apart so replacing the motor would require calling a dyson bloke out as i found out with mine when my switch failed i tried removing and replacing myself but when the bloke came out he used a thin piece of metal down the side of switch to press button to release switch after i payed him to do this 2 months later i got your problem and called them back they tryed selling me new one as the repair was 50 quid more than a new vac.
Hope this is some help sorry i couldnt give you good news
