How to Disassemble a Bosch Vacuum Cleaner Motor
A vacuum cleaner is our constant assistant, without which a comfortable cleaning would be impossible. Today, this type of equipment is in almost every home and is used very often. But like any other equipment, the vacuum cleaner fails over time. And therefore, it is so important to notice the problem in time and eliminate it. One of the bells indicating that the unit needs attention is the increase in the temperature of its engine and, as a result, the case. So, why is the vacuum cleaner warming up and what to do with it?
Diagnose the cause
As a rule, the answer to the question why the vacuum cleaner is very hot is simple and logical. And the most common causes of a possible problem are:
- One of the device filters clogged;
- An object is stuck in the hose or in the inlet of the vacuum cleaner;
- The dust bag is full;
- The engine is malfunctioning.
It is possible to understand what exactly causes heating. And in this case, it is desirable to act in the following sequence.
- First run the vacuum cleaner with the hose disconnected. If it stopped warming, then the problem is either in the hose or in the nozzle.
- Then you need to inspect the inlet of the device. And if there were no unnecessary obstacles in it, then an inspection of the dust collector will follow.
- It is important to carefully remove the waste container or bag. And check how the vacuum cleaner works in its absence.
- If the engine continues to heat up, then it is time to clean the filters of the device.
- In the same case, if none of the above brings the desired result, the answer to the question why the vacuum cleaner is noisy and heats up should be looked for in the engine.
The user of this type of technique should pay attention to the fact that he will be able to cope with some problems with some skill. But in a number of situations, one still cannot do without service intervention. And if the owner of the unit is not confident in his abilities, then it is better for him to immediately contact experienced specialists who will help remove the breakdown.
Solve the problem
After you find the reason why the vacuum cleaner overheats, you can begin to solve the problem.
1. Filter clogged
Most of the models of modern vacuum cleaners have filters that allow air to pass through while retaining dust, debris and other possible contaminants. And often because of the accumulated debris on the surface of the filters, air through their openings begins to pass with increasing difficulty. As a result, the load on the engine of the unit increases, and it begins to overheat.In this case, only cleaning the vacuum cleaner filters will help. Well, in those models where they are supposed to be replaced regularly, you must immediately change the filters to new ones. It is important to remember that some devices are equipped with several filters. As a rule, in addition to the filter at the inlet, there is also a filter in front of the engine, which does not allow dust and debris to get to the heart of the device, and at the exit, in order to prevent pollution, they will return to the room again.
2. Obstacle in the air duct
During cleaning, there is always a risk of suction of something that gets stuck in the hose or inlet. This forms a plug, which then prevents the passage of air, thereby causing the motor of the vacuum cleaner to overheat. As a rule, the problem is noticeable instantly, since the device ceases to draw in the garbage and its work begins to be accompanied by a peculiar sound. And the owner immediately has a question. Why the vacuum cleaner is noisy.
To solve the problem in this situation is not at all difficult. It is necessary to disconnect the hose from the inlet and either purge it or clean it with a suitable long object. This is especially easy to do when it comes to a vacuum cleaner with a composite pipe. For example, LG VK69661N or Gorenje VCK 1601 GCY IV. After the “cork” is removed, you can continue cleaning.
3. The dust box is full
Sometimes the answer to the question why the vacuum cleaner is being heated can be completely banal. Often, the reason is simply filling the trash bag. Dust and debris that is sucked in by the vacuum cleaner accumulate and eventually turn into a real obstacle to the movement of air flow. And it’s not always worthwhile to blindly rely on an automatic vacuum cleaner shut-off system, which should work at a certain level of filling the dust bag. Sometimes the level of its dustiness is easy to verify personally.
If it turns out that the dust bag is full, you just need to empty the bag or change it to a new one. Often, fine dust fills the gaps in the fabric of a reusable garbage bag, and in this case it should be washed well.
To make sure that the problem is in a crowded dust box is easy. It is enough to remove it from the apparatus and check how the vacuum cleaner works without a bag or container. No desire to regularly change and wash garbage bags? Then you should take a closer look at vacuum cleaners with an aquafilter. For example, Thomas TWIN Helper or Vitek VT-1835.
4. Engine malfunction
If it is easy to cope with all previous situations with your own hands, then only a qualified specialist will help to eliminate malfunctions in the vacuum cleaner engine. The fact is that the reason why the vacuum cleaner overheats is in this situation capable of hiding both in the deterioration of engine parts and in interspecific faults. And to uncover the problem on your own without proper experience is unlikely to succeed.
Typically, each type of vacuum cleaner has its own weaknesses. For example, some LG models begin to need graphite brushes over time. But in Samsung devices sometimes there are violations in the insulation of the windings and, as a result, interturn circuit. You should not disassemble the engine yourself, but if the user nevertheless decided on this, he should be careful. The motor cases are often made of aluminum alloy, which is very easy to damage.
