Questions & Answers

Uneven Wear?

hi... i am ordering 2 new brushes for my 116119 Lamb Motor, in a Beam 294 power unit. Motor needs a whack to start. i took motor out and inspected brushes, and found 1 brush worn down to only 1/16" left, and the other has 5/16" left. never seen that much difference. the bearings in the motor seem fine, there is no play. do you think this uneven wear in indicative of another problem? thank you for this wonderful website. we bought our new house with central vac a year ago, and i have no experience with them. your website information on motor replacement and repair was exactly what i needed.


Typically, when your motor needs a whack to start, it indicates a new motor is needed as the current motor is on its way out. Uneven wear is common and what matters is the condition of the armature where the brushes touch. If worn the new brushes will go bad soon. If there is play in the bearing they will go bad sooner.

Motor Brushes Wearing Out Fast

i recently replaced motor brushes (part # 210) and after less than a week the are copletely worn out again. tried a new set again and same thing is happening; lots of sparks and smell and brushes again are almost gone. have the feeling that springs in the 4 new brushes i bought from you last month, are pressing carbon too hard onto the rotating surface. am i using the wrong brushes for motor 116119? i bought the same part number brushes more than a year ago and they lasted me a full year. what has changed?? please advise how to solve the problem. thanks jim van ess

You have the correct motor brushes. You can replace them once towards the motor's last leg and get a year or so more. Motors only last 800 hours or so and then they are no good. The communtator will eat up the brushes, the bearing isn't solid and the play rips into the brushes as well. Please replace the motor and after 500 hours check the brushes.
