I have a TriStar LEC vacuum and today I turned it on and for a split second the motor whirred and then nothing. Now it won't come on at all. I cannot find any way to access the motor.

I transported my newly given to me by my dad tristar from Fl to LA and I can't get the reset button to start the power. The vacuum comes on, but the rug attachment is not spinning I can't get


If the rug attachment is not spinning, it is likely the drive belt has come off. Also, the entire intake area probably needs to be cleaned.

If the vacuum cleaner starts, the reset button has nothing to do with why the attachment doesn't spin.

It runs for a couple of minutes shuts off then restarts 30 seconds later runs a couple of minutes and does this over and over


Most vacuum motors are protected from overheating by a thermal switch that resets after cooling down. Check for blockage in the hose,
power head or a full bag that would block cooling air from cooling the motor.

Possible engine blow-up in Tristar vacuum

Possible engine blow-up in Tristar vacuum
Posted by skutch on May 28, 2008
5 days ago I was using the vacuum, and after 10 mins or so, I smelled a slight electrical burning smell and i immediately turned it off. i tried again yesterday to use it, and almost immediately after turning it on I heard a pop, saw what looked like blue flames somewhere inside, and again it smelled like it was burning. Of course I immediately turned it off and haven't touched it since. Seems to me the engine is a goner, but I believe it has a lifetime guarantee. So where do I get a new engine? I live in the Dayton, Oh area so if you know of anyone that services Tristars in this area I'd be most appreciative. Thanks!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

If you are getting an electrical burning smell it is your vacuum motor and you need to replace it. I am not sure if you have a lifetime warranty or not – most warranties are for 1, 2 or 3 years on electrical parts but I can try to give you a website or phone number to TriStar to see if they can help you on this matter. Question? How old is the vacuum and what is the dop? Listed below are some of the phone #’s that might be able to help you. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

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.
