Question Any Electrical Guru's around Here??????

As some of you may know I have been banging my head waiting on a switch to show up for my vacuum cleaner. well Friday the BLOODY thing finally hit town. so I went to town and put it in there. well I guess it was not the switch because it will not run Period!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The brush motor was turning on and off while I was running it. and the cleaning tool motor did run without any Issues up until it died. iI bought it back in 2012. it is a PROTEAM XP1500. SO if any body can help me figure what went south on it. or should I just cut My losses and get a new 1. new motors 4 it would be 160.00 plus tax. a new unit is 400.00. https://proteam.emerson.com/service/..._partslist.jpg

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

This is a snowblower forum !

I guess you cleaned the brush itself? I had mine doing the same thing last week and when I looked at the brush it had 5 lbs of long blond hair tangled up in it!
Human hair! But the vacuum still ran. Not your machine, I have a shark. I have 4 vacuums in the house. One is a shop vacuum. Shark is an upright, the other 2 are canister type.
Did you check the plug too? I guess you looked at the little belt that turns the brush?

I see your diagram but there are no names associated with the part number, which switch did you replace?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

I found a diagram for it with the parts listed along side of it.
https://proteam.emerson.com/en-us/sh...252/parts-list

When you say it won't run are you talking about the brush part? Or the whole machine?

Part # 70 and 71, it is a Switch, Safety, Power Nozzle Lockout and circuit breaker.
I wonder if there is a way to check these with a multi meter?
They are down by the brush.

I looks like it is an upright model with a power beater bar head. The suction motor is usually a brushed motor, check the motor brushes for wear, check the commutator for burning, check that the electic connections are tight, look at the motor windings for signs of overheating/burning. Check the beater bar motor for the same things. The power wire that goes to the beater bar is subject to flexing where the handle joins to the power head. The wire can fatigue internally at this point and become intermittent or open. Check where the power cord attaches to the handle, this area also flexes and the internal wires can break. Also check at the wall plug. If there are other flexing locations in the handle, check there also. You will have to test the wiring for intermittents or breaks with a volt or ohm meter or test lamp. Move the wires as you test. You can check the motors by isolating them and then powering them with clip leads from AC power. If the motors are multi-speed, identifying which terminals to use becomes more difficult.

The whole thing does not turn on.

Todd, if it were a Briggs motor, I know you could figure it out. I would just let the carpet get dirty enough where you could just use a rake to clean up. OR take it into a local vacuum repair shop since it would be cheaper than throwing unneeded parts at it.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I had a plug go bad on my upright. It was not that old, I tell them not to pull it by the cord!
But I might as well talk to the dog.
