I Recommend

Hi I have changed out several motors for the burgundy tristar as a recall there is a two speed switch on that model and the motor has five wires coming off the motor.I recommend a Ametek lamb motor model 115923, this motor has wonderful performance and because it has two motor leads it is simple to install I have the wiring diagram if you need it. The only difference in your machine will be it will now be a single speed but the performance will be greater then the original motor. If you have questions you can call me or email me from my facebook site new2youvacuums.

thanks for tri star motor info

not many people use low speed anyhow. but will that powerhead work ok ? who sells motors that is a trustworthy person. i was ripped off once on ebay buying the whole sweeper and it died fast.

You can buy motors off Ebay but purchase new not used most sellers of new parts will warranty there products.
