On the subject of your motor Croftie, if you isolated the burning smell to the brushroll, the carbon you see in the post motor area isn't that much. Carbons slowly wear over time and a little dust is to be expected.

Stick some new filters in (or wash the old ones) and wait till the motor conks out of its own accord.

PS - Nice rivet job somebody did there. Looks like it had a motor some time in the past anyway.

Yep wasn't sure if death was imminent and didn't fancy ruining the new filters, got a genuine post motor filter so wasn't cheap.

Long story, but it's definitely not had a motor.

Ordered a new motor housing but I'm now being told their supplier is out of stock. Any ideas where I can get one?

I can get that lot for 18, although the Brush Housing isn't new. So around 20 is fair.
