Wanted to be sure had right numbers before asking help

Had contractor in home doing drain/drywall repair. Idiot used my almost new vac to suck up both water & drywall dust.

I took it appart & cleaned it, waited a month to dry, reassembled. Runs , but agetator head does not turn. I did forget to check that reset button -possibly afuse? Been lazy haven't opened her up to check yet.

Local repair shop. Told me over phone that the brushroller/agitator would have been damaged by the water.

Replacement cost more than new vac. What's your oppinion?

Ha! After you guys provided spectacular help (& parts) last feb/mar, I resurected my frontload kenmore washer. Thank you all again. The control board is still humming along. I havent done thegasket yet thoug, my vinyl pool patch is working really well LOL.

Thanx for the link-worked pefect-

Found the motor in the agitator assembly.

Bad news: "we're sorry. That part is no longer available"

Any chance a fuse could be blown? Some where?

So I guess I'll tear it down check all the parts in the agitator head. If it is the motor. I'll just have to find a substitute motor. Any gueses? Dremmel? Electric hand wisk? Hair dryer? Pretty small motor.

Any chance anther manufacturer would cross polinate?
