Kenmore canister model 116.25513506 wont turn on. when handle switch is turned to floor. vac motor does not turn on. When switch is turned to carpet, floor nozzle works but vac motor does not. I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs. Thinking it must be the circuit board, how do I bypass it or test it?

When I plug in my vaccum the power light turns on, but i get no power to the machine??? I changed bags and filters and still nothing??? Can you help?


That light wire is attached to part of the wiring that is just a piece attached to the main wire coming from the switch. Your bags and filters have nothing to do with powering the machine. You may have a bad switch or there may be a ground wire off ... Vacuums

I have a hoover windtunnel platinum. I have changed the bag ( hepa Q bag) but the bag light wont reset. so the vaccum wont turn on. I have unpluged it and let it set for a while with the new bag in and repluged it in. I have checked the brushes and it is all clean but it will not reset. This only the second bag so it is a new machine I should not be having problems. Is there some sore of reset button I can hit.

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

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
