When to replace: The signs that a 117123 ametek 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.

This was a very easy. Installation of two motors in my central vacuum system. Everything arrived neatly packaged and was ready to install. It took only 30 to 40 minutes and my 20 year old system was up and running better than ever.
