Question about Dirt Devil Breeze Bagless VacuumVacuum

Open Question

It seems that when I turn on the vacuum there is a lot of sparks where the carbon contacts meet the motor. I know some sparks are normal, but these seem to be very large and continuous. I tried cleaning in this area, but it didn't help. Is there anything I can do?

Good Morning, after plugging the kirby in, I began to vacuum and a light started flickering from the back of the motor and then the sound while vacuuming starting getting louder and the light flickered...


The carbon brushes in your motor are worn out and "sparking" against the motor armature. DO NOT operate the vacuum in this condition or you may damage the armature so badly it will need replacement. Most vacuum dealers can replace the carbon brushes and resurface the armature. This should cost $40 to $50. If you need a new armature you are looking at $100 or more.

Brush on vacuum stop spining (HOOVER U-5753-960) Thank You


A worn out carbon brushes of vacuum will cause that motor spinning stop. Because brush no longer capable of pushing a stator or rotor hence electromagnet windings motor will not meet each other.
Have a brush replacement be customize in a nearby machine shop or find brush replacement on hardware store.
Look also for the possibility of loose wiring of the vacuum, check it also.
Thanks for asking.

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still...


Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor.

Motor is making a knocking noise with a burning smell and sparks can be seen when switching on


Sounds like ur FiLTER is CLOGED!

Air was blocked going in the motor thats why ur smeling smething burning, means ur motor is starting to overheat!

Spark in the motor is NORMAL when the CARBON BRUSHES is touching the ARMATURE!

My suggestion is to CLEAN & WASH the filter or buy a NEW one!

Hope that cleans evrything on ur probs!

Carpet brush turning on and off during vacumming


If the problem is only with the brush, and the vacuum motor is working all the time, then the most likely cause is a poor connection between the upper and lower parts of the machine. As you will know, the two parts can be separated easily and (especially if you do that often) the two little flat pins that make the electrical contact can become damaged. So check the pins, and the sockets they fit in to. If they are not visibly damaged, good contact can sometimes be restored by VERY SLIGHTLY bending the pins.
If you are able to check for electrical continuity between the pins in the brush part, then do so. If your machine has done a lot of work it may be that the so-called "carbon brushes" in the motor are worn out and are no longer making good contact so will need to be changed.
I hope this is helpful. If you need more information just post a reply and I'll see what else I can do. Please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

How to change carbon brushes


You need to know that very seldom will new carbon brushes alone `FIX`a motor in todays vacuums as they are higher RPM than those of 30 years ago.
On a salvageable motor a good rebuild procedure will generally include repacking bearings, cleaning suction fans and reseating new brushes with an abrasive seating stone at low speed with a motor run in device with variable voltage

That said, I have not done a HENRY in years but it likely will contain a generic AMTEK Lamb type motor as it is sold as more durable vac.
On a traditional vac motor, carbon brushes are removed by releasing a clamp over the brush. The brush holder will have either a flag terminal on it where the wiring will disconnect from the side, or a flat flag terminal which slides into a pocket on the carbon brush housing.
. If you are going to the trouble of replacing the brushes, remove and inspect the old ones for wear and chipping. Also inspect the commutator surface on the motor where the brushes contact. If there are any curved gaps between segments, or if the com is worn like an apple core , you need a motor complete.
If the motor has simply worn to the point where a brush has stuck or worn to nothing, you may be bale to reseat the new brushes, however any evidednce of BLUE sparks or noise is not a good sign . Best of luck. Post back if you need more help

A problem.


Sounds like the carbon brushes. If they are sparkng, then either they are bad or the armature is bad, possibly both.
