Had this model given to me 2 years ago ( brand new in box) and never used it until this week. Yesterday the motor `burnt out`, so being an engineer I have, with difficulty, removed the motor. The armature has`burst` ( commutator in pieces) so now have the task to find one. As I have found this model very heavy to operate I think I might just as well `ditch it` and go back to my old cylinder Vax.
Would not recommend this make or model to anyone.
On dismantling this unit I noticed that there was a build up of fluff around the end of the brush bearings which could cause `drag`. There is also a filter inside the casing which without dismantling the unit cannot possibly cleaned. As the unit only worked for about an hour before it stopped working I do not know whether this would get blocked or not. Would I buy another M/Richards, I`d rather resort to brush and dustpan.
