What motors it replaces: Only replaces 116213 motors.

When to replace: The signs that a 116213 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 mini breaker 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 116213 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 or taken to a metal recycling center. 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 116213 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 116213 Motor Brush. You will need to buy two.

Perfect fit, easy install, wiring was great, required no modifications, packing in the shipping box was high quality. This is the second motor that I have replaced on my 2 motor central vac. Would order this product again from this company with no reservations. You have to order the gasket separately, also fit nicely.

This motor fit perfectly in my AirVac, and was easy to install and hook up to the other wires. I saved a lot of money since I didn't have to have someone come out to fix my unit.

Motor was perfect. Installation was difficult due to the sleeves for the bolts and the right angle brackets where the bolts attach. Finally left them off.
