Air Vac AV625 Motor
I have a Air Vac AV625 ser#G93156- the cannister was full and I went to replace it and noticed one of the fuses on the side of the motor housing (on top) was popped out. 1st question- would the system run on just one motor? and explain why we have noticed reduced vacuum? 2nd- I pushed in the fuse to reset, turned on the unit and sparks flew from the motor on the right, turned it off, turned it on, less sparks, did this again, less sparks, and now it seems to be working fine, other than that smell of burnt electrical wiring. 1. if its running ok, should I replace it? I am concerned that it does
Yes, this is normal for a motor that is slowly giving up the ghost. It will work on one motor (only giving you more air movement, not more suction). Sparking is normal and will get more and less as it goes. And yes, this is the motor you need. Just wait until one completely dies and then replace both.
