Having problems with your Vacuums ?
There is no power, how do i open it up to get to the cord end inside, and then maybe the switch.
To fishkeeper, I checked, it's kaput. So I gave up and went out and bought a Eureka Boss. MUCH better vacuum for a lot less money. I'm almost glad the Vax had a heart attack.
Hi common fult with this one its usualy the power switch, pull off wheels (strainth required) unscrew the 4 torx screws and the two on top, pull apart housing you will see red button where power swich is, connected with two wires, its a in out switch if it does not stay in its kaput, ebay is the only place i found the switch.

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine. We have traced the problem to the wires inside the canister by opening the inside cover to the bag container. We see the power cords going into the canister but we're not able to get to anything. We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity
Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

My wife's Viking 6690 smoked this last weekend. I opened up the end where the power switches are and the board had a 0.01 ufd capacitor the blew up. That would be easy enough to repair. However when the Cap blew, it also fried a small quarter watt resistor that sits just under the upper white pin connector on the board. The resistor is burnt beyond recognition and I am trying to find its value. Is there a schematic available for that board or a closeup picture of the board so that I could

Oreck model BB870-AS - I was vaccuming when the vac shut off. The motor just spooled down and nothing more since. I have opened the case. Have power at the switch, and to the motor, but can't get a voltage reading to the common lead at the motor. Is there a fusible link, or something similar in that lead that might have burned out? Thanks!

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
No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?
So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
