Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Power cuts maybe after 10 mins use, then after switching off for an hour or so, it works again! repeat.
I would think that it is probably a motor going bad and tripping the overload switch. After the overload resets, it will run again. Is there a chance that the motor is still under warranty? Some vacuum maker warranty the motor for longer than the rest of the vacuum (Dirt Devil is 6 years on the motor) so hopefully they will fix it for free. One other thing, should be obvious, but I'll ask anyway -- the brush is turning properly and the vacuum has suction when it is working, right? if something is jammed that could overload the motor as well.
Sounds like motor overheating clean all filters , Should cure....

Hetty hoover not working. It was working ok until I opened it up to search the bag for a missing jigsaw piece and I put it all back and I hoovered the mess on the floor, then switched off and switched on and hoover would not work? Is there a cut off button on Hetty hoovers?

My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched). I fixed the wires and it worked intermittently for an hour then shut down completely. Could the reset switch have a short? When I press the switch nothing happens.

The vacuum won't start. I used it for about an hour and then turned it off and when I went to turn it back on ..there was no response. I cleaned every compartment on the machine and it's still not working. I also tried using a different outlet in the house. I've waited 24 hours thinking maybe it might have been just the vacuum over heating, but it's still not working.

I have only had my shark steam mop for about a month and only used it twice. I tried to use it yesterday and it would not work. The green light came on and it worked for maybe ten seconds, then it completely shut off. I tried switching outlets and draining the water but nothing worked. It still doesn't work today either. What do you think is wrong? Does this product have a warranty?
Yes has warranty call Shark/europro. ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

Try to find the reset button. It should be somwhere near the bottom area. It looks like a red dot that you can push inward. If you can press and hold the reset button, it will restart your suction and solve your problem. ... Vacuums
The mechanical off/on in the handle is not working with the electrical on/off switch upon removal of the handle you can cut the machine off by hand but after ensuring the the handle is re-placed in the proper position the machine will not turn off so what new handle or is the rocker switch has worn is now to hard for the mechanical switch to operated

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

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!!!!

On/off switch doesn't work. No power. The last few times I used it, kept cutting out but now won't switch on at all. No blockages.
As it was cutting out before it stopped working all to gether, it most likely isnt the switch but the motor.\015\012\015\012The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I just purchased a westclox tech model 70014 yesterday. I read the instructions and set the time. About an hour later, the time reverted back two hours. I read the instructions again and repeated setting the correct time. I assumed it was working. However, I woke up by myself today at 5:30am, but the clock read 1:14. Is there any way I can fix this or is it a manufacturing defect?

Won't work My Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged, was working fine, and we unplugged it to switch to another outlet in another room and it just stopped. We tried several other outlets and it just won't turn on. We thought maybe it got hot because we had been using it for a while and we let it rest for a while and then changed the bag just to be sure, although it was not full. But it still will not turn on. Any ideas?

I have the Janome 6600 P. Beginning a seam the thread knotted and the machine made noise and needle would not move either up or down. I manually moved the needle using the handwheel and cut away the knotted thread. I began sewing again but instead of starting at the edge began about a half inch down, forward stitched, reversed to lock threads and problem repeated and received the message to "Stop for safety purposes". Did that. Referred to the manual, tried manual recommendation. Did not work. I

On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.
