Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The switch on our Hoover Windtunnel vacuum cleaner is not working. I have located the replacement part on your website...part#Ho-28161067, I've removed the wires from the switch. Is there any trick to actually removing and replacing the switch itself? It seems to be in there rather tight.

Answers :

No, follow the directions to replacing the switch and you should be good. if you got the kit then splice the wires and replace them with the wires profied and the wire nuts, you should be good.

Motor/Fan does not run. I have removed and taken the top of the canister plastic motor housing apart and tested for power. I have power through the cord to the switch and power from the switch to the two wire terminals. I have not removed the motor. Looks like I will need special tools to take out the motor. The Vac looks almost new. It has been setting for several years. What do you think?

My Electrolux Epic 6500 SR will not turn off by pressing on the switch button. I took it apart and removed the switch assy. I can maunually turn it off & on by pressing the rocker arm on the switch assy. It appears that the problem is with the big blue operator button, not the switch assy itself. The button does not seem to press down enough to cause the rocker arm to switch. The button has a "U" shaped wire that presses on the rocker arm and it may have some broken plastic details at the b

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

Hello- my motor filter is becoming clogged every time i use it. i have removed and washed it--I thought maybe i didn't have the lid closed tight enough but for some reason dirt is pouring into the filter, it seems that some of the dirt suctioned is actually being pulled into the filter intead of the canister

One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. My best guess is that when you emptied the clear bin, a seal has dropped out (or become displaced) and the base of the clear bin is no longer sealing properly against the bottom of the cy ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

NO POWER My Dyson DCO4 Absolute (purple&lime) won't' switch on. I've checked the plug fuse, wall socket and also filters and hoses on machine all seem fine so think the problem is with the on/off button (maybe loose wire or something) but how do i get to it, is there a special way to remove the green on/off button in order to check the connection? Thankyou in advance for the help i am sure you will be able to provide.

The problem is almost certainly a fatigue break in the flex. These usually happen where the flex enters the handle through the rubber sleeve near the on off switch. You will need to cut about four inches off the wire and reconnect it to the switch. ... Vacuums

My Dyson DC 24's beater bar switch didn't actuate and the beater bar didn't turn. When I brought it to a certified serviceman he told me that a wire interferred with the switch and all he had to do was move the wire out of the way of the switch. At the time the machine was under warrantee and it didn't cost me anything. Now however, the machine is out of warrantee and the problem has returned. Does anyone know how to access the switch and move the wire out of the way?

Trying to attatch the wires from the light kit to the fan but the blue and white wires from the fan have white caps on them covering the wire. Do these need to be removed in order to attach the wires with the wire nuts? If so, how are these white plastic caps removed?

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot.
