That sounds about right,  the bearing would have jammed and then torm itself apart.  There are two bearings,  but if the other one feel fine you could just pop the cover off it then fill it with fresh grease.

Good luck,  hopefully it will work again for you.  For the cost of a new motor you may as well try!

Thanks for the feedback! you'll have your machine half apart to do it yourself now,  unless youve always used bags and its not too bad!

The bearing puller arrived today, so I swapped the bearing for a new one, put it all back together again..... and it worked a treat!

I bought this bearing off ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171718290401?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Thanks to becko again for mentioning which bearing he used - i ordered the same one for 4... however, i was tempted by these:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371347747801?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=640462168572&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
 which are a pack of 10 for 3.50. The dimensions seem to match; so they'd probably fit aswell.

Excellent, glad to hear it worked!

Would you have use for 10 though? An old member of these forums told me this when I was wanting one part for one machine, having another 9 would be a bit pointless!

I have 8 bearings that will fit the brushroll of a Hitachi Powerhouse though, because i could only buy them in 10's! And keep the bearings from scrap dyson clutches as they fit one side of Amtek motors used by Hoover in the 1999/2000's.

You have probably saved yourself a good few hundred too in either a new motor or a new vacuum!

no i wouldn't have used 10... lightning never strikes twice!

Also the pack of 10 are from china... so would've taken ages to arrive and the house is well overdue a vacuuming as it is!
