There's a short circuit on the motor armature.. needs replacement but it can be repaired depending on the problem.

No, do not replace the motor, the copper wire just melted off, correct from right on the metal brushing on the end, correct?

Geta welder or a mig welder or just a welder guy to weld , he will weld for maybe just $10-$20 dollars, the $59 dollars plus shipping on the motor will be about 75-80 dollars....jeeze the motor is good, just one of the brushings are bad. Have it tack welded....easy quick place back in....

Either the carbon motor brushes are bad or the motor armature is bad. May have to replace the motor.

Spark caused vaccum to turn off


Some vacuums have a reset button you can push. Some have a fuse in the power line that may have blown. You will have to follow the power all the way through the vacuum checking the voltage at each switch, connection, etc. I often unhook the power & neutral wires from the motor and hook up a power cord with connectors on the end directly to the motor to make sure the motor is good. You must be very knowledgable with motors, switches, electrical testing, etc. If not this repair is best left to a professional.

Motor issues


A faint burnt plastic smell is actually normal for these when brand new, but that normally disappears after a week or so. As for sparks, a thin trail of blue sparks trailing along the commutator (the uppermost part of the motor that can be seen rotating) is normal. However, if there are blue, orange sparks flying out of it its toast. The motor is dying in that machine.

Spinbrush is very loud, barely sprays, spraks flew out the side. It is only 6 months old.


Hope you kept your receipt! That's a warranty item. Your motor is making the sparks. Go to hoovers website find the nearest service center and take the machine and your receipt to them. You'll get a new motor, installed, at no charge because they have a 1 year warranty.

My hoover dual v steamvac make loud noise and sparks


Be careful. This could be a shorted wire inside where the motor is. If there is sparks , something is exposed and touching. The motor also may be ready to give out. Unless your daring enough to open the whole thing up I would bring it to a shop or replace it.
