How much to replace a hoover motor?


Upright or canister? On the canister type, the unit has to be taken completely apart by separating the top and bottom and removing several screws to get inside to find the motor. A search using your model number will normally reveal a youtube video showing you how.

My dirt devil has no main suction


You need to go a bit deeper in the unit to get what is clogged. it is most likely clogged on the inside of the unit. Take off the back and remove the inner workings following the path of the suction. Not hard to do just sucks.

How can I get to motor drive on g4 does it have a belt


The power drive has a geared belt on the end on the armature which operates the power drive. The power drive has been out since 1990, and I have yet to see a bad drive belt in 1000's of repairs. The drive unit itself will fail very infrequently, and need replacement. The belt can be accessed be removing the handle, switch plate, and upper motor shell. The power drive unit must be loosened and dropped down to remove the belt.

I think I need to check yhe brushes on vax swift 1500 bagless how do I get to the motor taken some screws out nothing budged and now come to a standstill . Help please


If it's like my model, remove the top cover of the base unit (surrounds the hose connector), remove the drive belt underneath, remove the upright unit from the top of the motor housing. Hopefully, now the motor is just sitting there held by the swivel mounts. Using just your hands, pull back on the motor while pushing the housing away from it on the drive shaft side. This will allow the drive shaft to come free from the housing and the motor will then lift free.

I need to remove the top of the motor unit on a Kirby Generation 3 to access the motor area of the vacuum


First remove the back, then remove the handle assembly. Then pop off the plastic switch cover and it has one screw on the back you will need to take out, then there are two screws in the front of the body housing and two on the back that you will need to take out and then you are ready to take the top cover off and get into the motor area.

Hoover U5750-900 just shuts off


I have a similar bagless model U5757-900 that is shutting off. I disassembled the unit, and what I found is that the motor front bearing had accumulated enough grime so that the bearing locked up. When this happened, the bearing outer shell spun in the plastic housing, causing it to soften, from friction heat. This allowed the motor shaft to become off center from the normal, centered axis of rotation. Once this happened, the rotor inside the motor began to rub against the stator, the fixed part of the motor inside. This loaded down the motor, causing excessive current draw, which caused the overheat switch to activate, shutting down the machine.

In your case, it might not be as bad as in my case.

Remove the dual-cannister dirt cup.

To find out, disassemble the unit lower section: on bottom, remove 4 screws around the rotating brush housing. Remove the brush cover, then remove the brush, then remove the belt. Remove the wide plastic housing behind the brush. Remove the two screws, from the bottom, that retain the upper hood. Remove the hood.

On the back, remove the two screws and hose retainer going from the base to the upright section. This releases the hose from the lower section.

Now press the tilt release, and lay back the upright section. Remove the four screws, two on each side, from the trunnion caps, where the upright section tilts on the lower section. Remove the trunion caps. Remove the upright section from the lower section.

Remove the headlight cover (2 screws).

From the back, remove the single screw retaining the bezel above the headlight area.

Slide the bezel upwards and remove.

Remove the four screws that retain the motor cover clamshell. One is from front, and other 3 from rear.

Open motor clamshell halves to expose motor.

Note orientation/position of the three wires on the motor, and remove those wires. Lift motor out.

To open the motor, gently tap the edges of the impeller housing (aluminum shell) on the edge of the shell, in the little gaps around the shell.

Using a 1/2" socket, remove the nut in the center of the impeller. This is a LEFT HAND NUT. TURN RIGHT TO LOOSEN IT.

Gently wiggle the impeller while pulling until impeller comes off of motor shaft. Use a glove so the impeller doesn't cut your hand.

Remove the large flat washer on the motor shaft. Remove the small sleeve from the motor shaft.

On the brush end of the motor, using a small screwdriver, pry out on the brush holders. Set them aside.

Remove the two screws holding motor together. Seperate the motor front from motor rear. Withdraw the motor rotating part.

Look into the inside of the stator, inspecting for bright, shiny areas where the rotor may be dragging on the stator. If you see these, then the front bearing, in the plastic motor frount, is fried. I don't think Hoover sells this part alone. Also inspect the plastic front bearing retainer to see if there is any melting that has allowed the bearing to become off center.

In any case, if there is scrubbed out places inside the stator, then the motor requires replacement, about $70 for the motor... You might be able to find an entire new vac for less... or, like me, find one on the side of the street where someone has tossed out a unit.

You may luck out and find that the impeller unit is just filled with some trash so air cannot get to the motor for cooling... or you may have a shot motor.

Motor Filter Has Been Sucked In - Eureka 4467AV Upright Vacuum


you will have to remove the cover over the motor so you can get to it and the fan. When you get the filter out, drill holes first, then drive a couple of nails down thru where the filter sits so it can't get sucked into the fan again.

It won't start


Hi. Dont fully understand what you mean by (It was plugged going into the empty cylinder) If it is dead check mains lead to switch for any internal break in the lead,This is very common it usually breaks where it enters the machine. If its not the mains lead Check switch unit. I doubt its the motor unless it was giving a burning smell with a popping noise,
