Is this right? Testing DC24 Brushbar motor
« on: January 25, 2016, 01:41:20 PM »
Hi everyone,

It's been awhile since I did electronics at school and just wanted to check that I had the right idea here.
To check that the voltage the brushbar motor is receiving is 240v DC i should have the
Vacuum turned on -> Brushbar motor connected into the pcb and check like so?

I'd connect the multimeter to the pins on the PCB where the motor plugs into first, check for the juice there.

Dont forget to have the machine reclined too, as the brushsroll turns off via a microswitch when upright.

The brushbar motor will receive about 330v DC. Despite what the label on it says.
