What motors it replaces: Replaces 116465, 116467, 116488-13, 117129, and 117467 motors.

When to replace: The signs that a 117465 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.

How to replace: It is not difficult to replace the 117465 Ametek Motor. There are three bolts and a couple of wires. All of our customers are amazed at how easy it is. NOTE: There is no core trade-in. Used motors are thrown away. Click here to read and print out our step-by-step motor replacement instructions. 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.

Replacing motor brushes: The Lamb 117465 vacuum motor has carbon motor brushes that can be replaced. This should be done before a motor is "on its last legs." Read more about changing the motor brush on the detailed motor brush how-to page. If you are ready to replace your motor brushes, here is a link to the Ametek 117465 Motor Brush.

Motor works great, additional gasket was crammed in with motor dunnage and should have been laid flat in carton, had a few wrinkles in it but worked.

Very easy purchase. The pictures of the replacement parts were very detailed and clear. It was easy to match up the part I needed. I made one quick call and the person who answered was able to help me. Our central vacuum system now works great! If/when I need further parts I will be getting them from MD Central.

Just replaced the motor on my 22 (yes 22) year old Beam 287. It arrived in about a week and to my shock it was an EXACT match to the original Lamb. I don't think I've seen anything that is exactly the same from 22 years ago. I wish my body was like that. Because it was identical I had it mounted and working in about 15 minutes. There are only 3 wires, the ground is green, and the other two doesn't matter which they connect to because it's AC. I probably spent more time trying to figure out the ancient "spring mount system" than in connecting the motor. I also ordered the gasket on a hunch that I might need it and I was glad I did, I had to "peel" off the old one. I also changed the "permanent bag" and needless to say the vacuum runs like a new machine, a bit quieter and much more powerful suction. In this day and age of everything going obsolete in a couple of years this was a great purchase.
