Having problems with your Bissell 3750 Lift Off Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

I was vacuuming with bissell 3750-T and I shut it off and went to turn it back on and will not start or do anything, what is wrong?


Answers :

If you can't smell burning then it's probably a broken power switch or the vacuum got too hot and the thermal overload protection has tripped. Try leaving it off for 15-30 minutes and try it again. The thermal overload will reset itself during this time and it should work again.
\015\012
\015\012In the meantime, make sure you have power to the vacuum, check for any blockages and check that the rollers in the cleaning head will turn by hand. Also, give your filters a clean. Any of these could cause the vacuum to overheat.
\015\012
\015\012If you've already done this and/or power doesn't return after 15-30 minutes, I would start by checking the switch.
\015\012
\015\012A couple of questions . . .
\015\012
\015\0121. Does the power switch feel "normal" - basically does it have a positive feel when you switch on and off?
\015\0122. How long had you been using the vacuum before it stopped working?
I had the same problem. Took me a week to figure it out. Replace the sponge type filter directly below the collection cannister and the problem should resolve. I've cleaned mine repeatedly thinking this fine filter was the problem, but cleaning wasn't enough. Once I replaced it, the problem went away --I can now vacuum for 20 minutes continuously without overheating.

I have a Kenmore Progressive upright model 216-37100800. It is only around 1.5 years old. My wife said that one day after she plugged it and turned it on, it whirred up but then shut off. Since then it will not start. I have noticed that right after I plug it in, if I try to turn it on, the first yellow light in the series of dirt sensor lights turns on then shuts off. After that the light will not light up on pressing the power button, unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. I have seen o

I was using my easy flow central vacuum, and shut it off. When I went to start it up again 5 min later, it would not turn on. I emptied out the filter, and reset the switch. When the reset button was pushed, it started up the vacuum, but the vacuum was not turned on in the house. It can only be turned on from in the garage and not on the actual hose. What is going on?

My Bissell ProHeat 2x is pouring water out of the bottom anytime it's turned on. I had it in the shop for no water, took it back again for the same problem, took it back again because it had no suction, finally took it apart and found the problem with the suction and fixed it myself. Worked fine for a day and now it is constantly leaking water, if it's turned on, and is useless for anything except for making a mess.


Took the unit apart and discovered my heater had small pinholes in the metal and they had put in silicone, instead of a gasket, which didn't seal. So much for the place I took it to "saving" my heater for me. I repaired it myself by getting a few o ... Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No

Spare wire? My SEBO X4 flex had to have the fex shortened because the cable sheathing had come out of the internal gripper and there was a couple of inches of two strand wire hanging out the cable entry point before the insulation sheathing started. No problem doing this but on the live switch terminal there was a piggy back spade connector. The second wire from this went down inside the handle and just ended with a bare terminal hanging in space. It hadn't come off anything, there wasn't anyth

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was obstructing the hoses or the spinning brush part. It turned on for 1 second, smells like smoke somewhere from the bottom and now won't turn back on so I don't know if anything is spinning or not. What can I do to fix this myself?

I have an Electrolux LITE upright carpet cleaner - about 15 years old. Suddenly last night when using it, from the normal motor (whooshing) sound, the motor suddenly went very slow and with a slight grinding sound. The brushes are now just turning round very slowly and areobviously not picking up anything. Has the motor gone or is this repairable, or should I just get a new cleaner? I have tried to open the machine from the bottom to see if anything is obviously wrong, but it looks complicated a
