I have an easy flo vacuum model # 199C and it won't shut off. It started out as an intermitent problem but now will not shut off when the hose is unplugged, nor when the off/on switch on the main unit is shut off. the only way to get the motor to stop running is to unplug the unit. Any ideas?
Just had this same problem. I unplugged the low voltage signal wires and the vacuum stayed on. Thus eliminating the possibility of the signal wires shorting out somewhere. I'm not really sure which wire(s) were causing the problem. But when I disasse ... Easy Flo EF1500 Vacuum

I just used my Bissell Proheat, when I heard the vacuum sound get lower and lower then suddenly something "gave" and it got very loud and started emitting a burnt rubber smell. It still worked to put liquid into the carpet; seemed to have trouble getting it out. I checked the tank, filters, belt, and roller and all seemed OK - but when I started up again and looked down I saw sparks in the motor/belt area and shut it down immediately. Any thoughts?
The bearing that is located at the top of the vacuum motor has failed . Because of that the shaft of the motor's rotor is out of position and the pulley attached to it has started rubbing on the other pulleys, giving you that smell. the spark appear ...

Model # 5770 the brush motor runs and shuts down after a few seconds...Turn unit off and the brush again will run for a second or two...If I don't turn unit off brush will not start up..Could it be the printed board..the motor brushes..or the wiring that goes from the printed board to the main motor...Thank you
Seems like your unit goes into failsafe because it detects something wrong. Well you should check the brushes and replace them if they are worn out. Also check the wiring for shorts etc, becaue the unit maybe tripping due to an overload. The printed ... Bissell Vacuums
RE: Goldstar dehumidifier: Model #DH404EY6, S/N 602TAQP05412 My unit is ~4 yr. old, has worked w/o problems until now. It will no longer auto. turn on. When I manually turn it on, the motor turns on, and then immediately shuts off, and "01" appears on the LED screen for humidity level setpoint. Is this an error code, and what does it mean? Can the unit be repaired? Thanks, Wolfgang
I just purchased a black and decker corded hand vac/blower/inflator. I plugged it in (for the first time ever) it started and then shut off immediately. I tried different outlets thinking it blew a circuit in the first one. However it still won't start. Very frustrating!
Unfortunately those units are prone to breakage they are also usually a sealed unit (not able to take apart). The best thing to do would be take it back where you bought it and try to get your money back. They just aren't worth fixing. V ... Black & Decker Vacuums
I have a vx550cc that keeps kicking in and out quickly, then shuts down for a few seconds and starts up kicking in and out again. There is lots of suction at all the outlets and sweeps. The dirt bucket has been emptied and the filter cleaned. Al the LED lights light up when the motor kicks out, then back to one green when it starts back up. This unit has worked great for four years with no problems.

Shark/cordless /sweeper - over four years old. Started - but seemed like it was caught and shut off almost immediately. Not used year around - tried to start after absence. I have removed some hair and perhaps dental floss. Checked belt - it seems O.K. Do I need a new battery or is it just worn out.
Check the brush,is there any dirt got stuck in between brush rolls.If there is then it needs to be cleaned.Your cordless sweeper will automatically shut off if an obstruction is caught in the brush roll. the other thing to checks is dust contai ... Vacuums
When I turn on the unit and push on the level that draws the "arm" back, it immediately shuts off. I return it to the upright position and turn it on again and repeat the process. Same thing happens. Took it to an Oreck repair shop (mistake #1) and they couldn't figure out what was wrong. Any ideas?

Model C153C The vacuum cleaner starts but stops immediately. If I disconnect the hose it will run but if I partially put my hand over the suction it shuts off. Both filters have been changed.
Hi If the vacuum cleaner works but then shuts off unexpectedly, it may be because of restricted airflow which can cause the vacuum cleaner to overheat and shutdown. Check the vacuum cleaner for clogs and if the bag/tan ... Electrolux Vacuums
On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin. Any ideas?
Are you sure you purchased the right size belt..the friction you speak of is usually caused by a belt not being the right tightness or a jammed beater brush ... Hoover U6446-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
My Dirt Devil Vibe bagless vacuum started giving off a burning smell. The brush roller was jammed with hair. I immediately shut it off and cut the hair out of the rollers with scissors until it turned freely. When I turned it back on, the smell was gone but there's no suction now. Did I ruin the belt or something else?

Stops Immediately. We have a Beam Serenity model 2100 installed in the home and when the hose is inserted into the wall it turns on for a few seconds and then shuts off on it's own. Turning the handle's power switch off/on restarts the unit only to have it once again stop after a few more seconds. The canaster is clean. What could be causing this stopping issue? Thanks.

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor. If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Bruce

I have a Kirby Dual Sanitronic '50' Vacuum Cleaner I bought in 1966. The motor does not start when I attach the belt lifter of the rug nozzle. When I remove the rug nozzle and detach the belt from the motor fan shaft the motor starts when I depress the nozzle switch and the power switch . Seems like the brushes in the motor are worn out. I do not have a manual for this unit. Can you assist me as to what newer unit is this compatible to and the problem I'm having at present??
