Q:

Kenmore Model 11640523 In House Vacuum--motor hums -- no more suction????

A:

Thank you for your question.

  • It sounds like you are correct. The motor sounds like it has a motor brush that is not making good contact on the motor commutator. Because of the age of this unit the brushes may be worn out.

  • I am sorry to say that the brush kit for this motor is no longer available.

  • The replacement motor is available 569184, however the motor is about $300.00 and I guess I would think twice about that.

  • My suggestion is that you remove the motor and take it to a motor shop or a good hardware store to see if you can find some universal brushes that will fit.

  • The other option is to order the motor.

I included a link for SearsPartsDirect.com www.searspartsdirect.com if you choose to order that motor.
