Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My Hoover Windtunnel blew the circuit breaker today, and did so again after I reset the breaker and turned off the only other appliance on that circuit. Any advice? Thanks from GrGrandma in Fremont


Answers :

There could be a problem with the vac, the only way to know is to use an ammeter and test the current draw of the unit. If the vac is ok, the breaker could be failing. Plug the vac into another receptacle on a different breaker and see if it still trips the breaker; if it does, then have the vac checked out

My vacuum stopped working and tripped a circuit breaker in my apartment. I plugged it into a circuit with higher amperage, and the circuit tripped after the vacuum ran for a few seconds then a bit of smoke puffed out of it. I assume the motor is burned out. Can I repair this? Considering buying a refurbished one for around $70 - which is probably less than round trip shipping back to the manufacturer (this is way out of warranty).

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?
