My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!

The head on my guardian suddenly quit working while I was using it. The reset button seems stuck up. Are their any more reset buttons

No, that's the only one. Make sure there is nothing wrapped around the roller brush. If so, clear it. Try pressing the reset button, then start machine. If nothing, there's good possibility the switch is broken or worn out. I recommend taking to ... Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

The steam mop was only used 3 times.stopped working. It has now stopped working altogether. I have only had it for a month. I did not save the receipt because after the third time working I thought it was okay. I am very disappointed and have a hand shop vac of Sharks which has been working for a year. I have been discouraged from buying another one of your products now that the steam mop has quit working after 3 times. I followed the exact instructions how to use it. Model S3101/ 120V 60HZ

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced

There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

I have excellent suction power through the vac, but when I try to use the hose there is no suction power there. I have cleaned everything and it is definitely clean and clear. I've also used the reset button.

When you use the upright Dyson, the handle has to be in the upright position for the hose to work. In this position, there should be a clear way through for the suction to the hose, and the suction for the normal sweeper should be off. This is all ...

Hover Elite Rewind I've only had this vacuum a few months and I really liked it until now. There is almost no suction from anywhere in the vacuum, and I've cleaned all the filters and rollers with my shop vac and made sure that everything was assembled correctly. It used to be really quiet now it is quite loud and it keeps over heating, and shutting off. At this point I have no idea what could cause this problem, the machine is nearly brand new and I can't afford a new one at this point.

You have to clean out the hose under the bottom of the vacuum cleaner. To do this you have to remove the bottom plate the covers the brush it has about 6 screws. Also remove the brush and belt in order to thourhly clean it. I had the same issue you h ... Vacuums

I have an old Shop Vac model 3331.5. This is a 12 gallon 1.5 hight peak shop vac with a detachable blower. After many years I decided to use the blower feature, but have lost the lost the manual.

I may be missing a part, but I would think the directional cap would have to come off anyway.

Remove the cap that directs the air and insert the hose in there. ... Vacuums
