Description / Abstract:

This test method covers motor life evaluation of household or commercial single and dual motor upright vacuum cleaners (uprights with separate motors for creating the vacuum and driving the floor brush). Self-propelled or powerassist cleaners are not within the scope of this test method

This test method is limited to evaluation of the upright vacuum cleaner electric motor(s)

This test method provides a test to determine operating life of the motor(s), before servicing is needed, by an accelerated laboratory procedure. Motor(s) are tested while mounted and operated in the upright vacuum cleaner
