The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

I only know this model as the Classic, but the colour of the canister in the photo is the same. The machine will not turn on, but when I retract and pull on the cord, the power light comes on briefly. Is there a short? I lent the vacuum to my daughter and perhaps she was rough with the cord.

Could I have a short in my cord? I can vacuum & then when I move the canister it shuts off, if I wiggle the cord it will turn back on. This last time, it just revs like a car trying to start & then does nothing. I live in a VERY remote area (80 miles from nearest Wal-Mart or McDonalds) so I know I will not be able to find someone to repair this for me. I have great doubt that I will be able to do it myself & my husband is an accountant so he is unavailable for another 6 weeks!!!!! Any suggestion

Wiring diagram for Model #11635922500 - KENMORE Upright vac I took the cover off of the vacuum to repair the power cord and must have pulled a wire out of its wire nut by the sweeper bar. If I had a diagram it would be no problem to replace. The bad has four short gray wires coming out of it. It is one of the gray wires that has come loose.

Took my miele canister vacuum cleaner in for repair because the cord had a break in it creating a short. He said it also needed an inter filter ($12.29) and the carbon brushes were worn out ($21.95). Is that possible? Also wanted to service the motor and put in a new seal ($49.95) Shouldn't that include the inter filter and carbon brushes?
Depending on the age of the vacuum and how much use it gets, the first two are possible. I would question the brushes as they should last for several years.\015\012The servicing is generally for labor only and doesn't include parts. I do reco ... Miele Vacuums

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.
My friend has a Tristar MG1 vacuum. The cord was
Chances are that there is the tiniest fray of one of the wires touching somewhere. Since you have already made a good repair with nuts and tape, feel the length of the cord for other bite marks where a puncture might short the cords. If you find s ... Tristar Vacuums
Hot cord the cord on my vacuum cleaner has been getting very hot the heat is from one end to the other incuding the plug and also where the cord exits the back of the canister please help I love this vacuum cleaner it has been faithful to me for over 15 years!

Meile Solaris. Power cord connection faulty. Unit powers on/off when cord is being retracted/pulled out. Maybe a break in wire close to connection point in vacuum. Or, the connection point itself is loose? The problem likely resulted from trying to use vacuum at furthest extent of cord.
Cord reel likely needs to be tightened. requirs disassembly and large washers installed to keep reel connections tight. Jim ... Vacuums

A family member recently gave me their Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner (model 35821) and I did not notice that the power cord was missing at first. I tried to look closely at the manual online to see if this was something I would be able to purchase or if the vacuum was no longer any good.

I have an aerus electrolux guardian canister vacuum. The cord was damaged but the retraction winder is still fine. I have ordered a replacement cord but I have no idea how to remove the old cord and install the new one. Am I over my head?
The winder is activated by a coil spring located in a drum. The drum transmits the power from the wire with 2 circular contacts. To replace the cable you must dismantle the case to access the drum, take the spring pressure out carefully as to not let ... Vacuums
My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis
