Answers :

Does it have a headlight and does it work? if so then unplug the vacuum and turn the brushroller by hand a few times.then plug it back in,if it works then your motor might be bad.you can try to spray a little wd40 into the switch then.work the switch back and forth a few times first to get the lubricant worked in to the switch .try to turn it on now.see if you have any cuts in the cord.also see if the cord is pulled out of the vacuum .if so you might have a wire unplugged inside the base of the vacuum

Eureka Boss Smart Vac 4870 evidentally overheated. Allowed unit to cool and observed a spark/smoke at outlet when it was replugged into the power outlet. Unit will not power up now. Circuit breakers in the home are fine. Is there a fuse that can be replaced in the unit? Does the unit need to be serviced? Is there a Eureka Authorized Service Center in Orlando, Florida?

I fear the motor has failed on my Electrolux Oxygen EL6988D. Just six months after the warranty expired, I was vacuuming when it suddenly stopped. There was no blockage in the tube and it wasn't working hard or long . . . it just stopped. I looked around the Internet and it appeared that many similar Electrolux units have a fuse. I hoped my problem might just be a blown fuse, so I took the machine apart. There are two small printed circuit boards, but no fuse. There is an in-line

Hi,\015\012\015\012I don't think you need a new motor, but please stop testing the machine with live power. It's dangerous and unnecessary.

The circuit breaker on the unit pops almost every time I use the unit, what might be causing this?

We recently bought a home with a 52" Hampton Bay Berlini Model 729 395 ceiling fan with a light that operates on a remote control. There is also a wall switch plate with two circular controls - one pushes and spins, the other turns with 4 clicks. We can not get the light or the fan to operate using either the switches or the remote. We have checked the circuit breaker. The manual that came with the unit - provided to us from the previous homeowner - really only describes how to install the uni

To : admiralstopf I have a U-Line clear ice maker UCLR2060B40. The authorixed service center has been trying to fix my unit since October to March. They have replaced the circuit board 2x and the Thermister and rain tube. They clai they were able to get it to work on their bench (not sure if true) but they can not get it to work in the house. They gave up and refunded my payment. Now what? Jonathan

I just bought a Hoover Platinum Collection MaxExtract Carpet Cleaner (Model No. F8100900). This is the first time I've used it and got half way through one room and the unit cut off and has no power at all. No lights anywhere. On/Off button is inoperable. I checked the outlet and it's still operating so it's not a circuit breaker issue. The problem appears to be with the machine. Has anyone heard of this happening this quickly? Is there a reset button on the machine>

The electricity in the apt attached to my house lost power in two of the walls. It happened when the cleaning ladies I think were using a vacuum, they don't speak english very well so I'm not sure. I have looked at the circuit breaker a # of times and nothing seems to have been tripped. I have also inspected the outlets and they seem to be fine. Can you help me?

Even know the breaker doesn't look tripped it might be. You have to flip it all the way off and then back on again. That is most likely what has happened. If that doesn't work check to make sure a GFI hasn't tripped. They are usually loc ... Vacuums
