\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012Depending on the Brand name and Model # there is what they call Thermal Switches on some of the vacuums that prevent the motor from over heating and possible burn out of the motor If the hose is clogged, the bag is full or the filter is dirty and the air does not flow threw the filter. Any one of the three situations could cause the vac to say “cut out” and stop the motor. So check with your local vac dealer.
\015\012So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now.

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope

We have a Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner and the power in the floor component (rotating brush, etc) is no longer functioning. The vacuum is producing suction, but does not seem to be providing power to the floor component.

The problem could be with the power head itself or the hose providing the power. If you can turn the unit on from the handle, then its not the hose and you need to get a new power head.. ... Panasonic Kenmore Canister Vacuum Vacuum

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.

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank

You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
