Having problems with your Vacuums ?
The electrical cord has a short can it be cut and repaired
Most of the time yes you could also try to put a new plug on the cord itself that could fix it otherwise i'd take it to a repair shop to have them change the cord for you sometimes it can be real difficult.

It's probably best to replace the device, when dealing with sparks and exposed wires. \015\012\015\012If you're electrically-inclined, feel free to pry it apart (when unplugged!) and see if you can re-attach things, but generally soldering or g ... Vacuums
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

I have a Z5930 vacuum and i want to trace an electrical fault. I need to disassemble it to get to the electrical connections and it is quite a tricky one to get in side. The machine will run and then cut out after a short time. It will then re-start in about 2-3 minutes and run normally again and so on. I was not able to give you the exact model but it is Ultra Filtration Oxygen line

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

Rule 1800 Pool Cover Pump With Leaf Protector 110v not running. Pump had a partially severed electrical cord which I repaired. I have cleaned out the pump for debris (took off outer parts). I still get nothing when I plug it in. Impeller is somewhat hard to turn but I can find nothing impeding it. Thoughts?
Most likely the shaft bearing is seized up and not allowing the impeller to turn. Pull the bottom odd till you can spin the impeller by hand and use some penetrating oil around the shaft turn it by hand a few times and then with it still apart plugg ... Vacuums

The power head has developed an intermittent, but frequent, electrical short. Is there an easy way to assess where? Or is this a matter for a repair shop.
Greetings,\015\012\015\012A majority of the time when this happens, it's caused by the hose having a short in it. You'll need to first identify what the source of the short it. To do this, turn the power brush on, and then swivel the h ... Kenmore 23812 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
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

Oreck Upright Hi Redev, I'm not sure what model I have (about 6 years old...upright, looks like the one in the picture). I changed the belt (which was torn) and then the next time I used it, it cut off on me. Now if won't turn on at all. (I turn the switch on and off and nothing happens as if it is not plugged in but it is!). I noticed at the top where the power cord enters the handle, it is all frayed. Could the electrical wires have detached? Anything you think I should check before taking it
