What motors it replaces: Only replaces 116210-85 motors.

When to replace: The signs that a 116210-85 Lamb motor needs to be replaced include: mini breaker popping, electrical smell, excessive blue sparks seen from motor top, you only hear a click, motor shuts down on its own but works later, or its life of 900-1,200 hours has been used up. (If you don't hear a click, then your relay most likely needs to be replaced and your motor may be fine). Five percent of the time, the minibreaker will go bad as well as the motor. If this happens, replace the motor and then evaluate the mini breaker.

Note that if the unit bolts into metal brackets then the ground wire can be snipped. If plastic then attach the ground wire to the ground from the power cord or anywhere to metal on the unit.

I ordered this motor off the website for my Nutone central vacuum and it arrived with no issues, it didn't take me long to replace the old motor and it works perfectly.
