SOURCE: Motor Brush for older model Filter Queen

Is there a Johnstone Supply in your area? How about an ACE Hardware. A vacum repair place? Sewing machine repair place?

If you have the data, ACE or Johnstone should be able to help you. Don't discount other electrical supply places. You will not get help at a big box place.

When I Googled "Filter Queen parts", I found lots of places on the WWW. There must be something close to you.

Give it a try. Let me know if this works for you.

SOURCE: spin brush will not spin

There is a plastic rod that sticks out of the back of the spin brush, this makes all of the brushes rotate. The motor would need to be replaced if it was not turning on anymore. this doesn't sound right...?

I think it is just a broken piece of plastic on the block brush which will need to be replaced.

You can find a schematic and the parts you need on this link

I need the electrical motor P/N 90565704-04.

Do you need a new motor or is it just the brushes which need replaced? Firstly unplug the machine and disassemble the motor or gain access to the brushes, found on either side of the motor at one end only. Remove the brushes (they usually unscrew behind the black caps), if they are burnt or look badly worn or are less than 5-8mm in length, replace them. The BRUSH is the black carbon rectangle of hard material at the end of the brass spring. New brushes are often 25-30mm in length as a guide. Based on that information you then decide if new brushes or a new motor is the answer. A quick tip; If you remove the motor and clamp it safely, connect the correct voltage to the motor lead and switch on long enough to establish if it is working and running freely. If you cannot find the parts locally, try uk.

Hotpoint washing machine water fills but will not rotate ,message see user manual.door interlock has to be bypassed .what is wrong?

If it fills with water it is probably not the door lock suggesting a fault with the programmer or motor. If you are getting a voltage to the motor and it is not turning, the motor is likely to be your fault.

Motors can be replaced or new brushes may be all that you need but you are likely to have to take the motor out to check it as they are not usually easy to get to. Brushes are relatively cheap (£5 - £10) but can be difficult to find and a new motor probably around £50.

If you are able to tackle the repair yourself is worthwhile trying the brushes (but be prepared for the repair to take several days to get the parts unless you have a local repair shop around the corner that carries parts). A problem with the windings of the motor would require a new motor in any case.

If you get someone in I expect they would change the motor and not mess about with brushes. An experienced repairman should be able to fit a new motor in an hour and if you outline the problems and they bring a spare motor along with them the cost to repair is likely to be of the order or £100 - £150 (say £80 callout and £50 motor).

Replace belt genesis upright

Turn vacuum upside down on flat surface, remove the 6-7 screws from the bottom of the power nozzle, lay it on it's side and pry on the two accessible internal tabs to pop top cap of the nozzle off to access the pn motor assembly. Lay flat on it's back again and remove the screws that hold the roller brush in, remove the roller brush, remove old belt, install new belt on brush roll and pn motor geared spindle, push brush roll back in place, replace screws and pn top and VOILA!'re back in bidness! Hop that helps!

I have a older m&s system central vac model av625 one motor quit the brushes are gone are parts available

You will need a new motor, not brushes, as the worn motor will tear through new brushes. Search online for the M&S motor replacement and you will see helpful sites that will provide the replacement motor. Replacing the motor is not difficult. Consider replacing both motors as the second motor will go out in the near future.

The vacuum cleaning brush is not spending

Yes belt probably broken. Also the brush roller heats up on the ends, causing the plastic end cap nearest the belt to melt/weld to the end. It's supposed to spin freely. Also 2 bearings inside tend to become sticky, probably from heat. Next thing you know, the brush roller is seized and will not turn. Probably the whole reason the belt breaks. New belt & new brush roller, 30-35 bucks. It will happen again. Now you've spent almost half what it costs new. Lose the junk. 2 years for a cheap vacuum is the normal life span anyhow.

States see user manal E 30

The E30 code on Hotpoints means the motor isn't working. This can be due to a failed power module, worn motor brushes (very common on heavily used machines) or a failed motor fuse (usually caused by a worn motor armature). Sometimes it's a failed main circuit board, but this would normally be indicated by other erratic behaviour which you have not described, but it's still a possibility but is the least likely cause.

The tricky bit is knowing what has actually failed if you lack the tools and knowledge to make a diagnosis. The fuse is very cheap, but always blows for a reason: fuses don't just wear out. If the brushes are worn out then it's easy and cheap on a Hotpoint to replace worn carbon brushes: see for an excellent guide regarding this, all credit to the excellent Washer Help website. If the armature (the bit the brushes make contact with) is badly worn then new brushes won't fix the fault and a new motor is the best option. Hotpoint motors are fairly cheap and easy to replace so don't bother with gambling on a worn secondhand motor as it could fail again at any time.

Diagnosing a failed power module involves using a multimeter to test the module outputs. If the module has failed you still need to check the motor as I've known some peculiar armature failures to blow the module as well (even though the 7.5A motor fuse is meant to prevent this!).

Hotpoints certainly aren't the most reliable machines around, but they are relatively cheap to buy and usually cheap to fix. If the motor has worn out then expect the pump motor to fail very soon as well but again it's usually cheap to replace. When the machine is apart, check the drive belt for wear: Unless it's near perfect then replace it as a matter of course.

I hope that you have found my answer to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Make sure they are the right carbon brushes for your particular lamb motor and once you have installed the new ones then there is a seating chalk that you place against the armature to help seat the carbon brushes, you can pick up the seating chalk @ your local vacuum cleaner store or contact Lamb / Ametek listed below. 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.
