Shark s3325 stopped working while steaming; thinking the unit had ran out of water I allowed unit to cool before refilling, however unit over flowed with only 700ml water added. When I plugged unit back into outlet it would not turn on (red light was not on) but I hear a click upon plugging in unit, when turning unit power button on and when turning on the handle switch. Please advise how to resolve this problem.

I have a Bissell lift-off revolution. The power won't turn on at all. Tried different outlets. It doesn't work whether the lift-off canister is out of the frame or in the frame. The manual refers to a reset switch but can't find it, even when I took the cover off the main canister unit. Where is the reset button and/or fuse?

Dead motor? My 8 year old Miele S251i has worked fine, until I was recently vacuuming and moved the plug from one outlet to another. When I restarted the vacuum, it made rrrrr.....rrrrrr....rrrrr noises and smelled like something was burning. I turned it off, and it's shown no signs of life since. Sound like a motor problem? I've taken the cover off and looked at the cord and seen the motor, nothing looks obviously wrong, but I'm also not mechanical.

Won't work My Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged, was working fine, and we unplugged it to switch to another outlet in another room and it just stopped. We tried several other outlets and it just won't turn on. We thought maybe it got hot because we had been using it for a while and we let it rest for a while and then changed the bag just to be sure, although it was not full. But it still will not turn on. Any ideas?

I have a 3 year old NuTone CV 353W central vac system and recently the switch on the hose handle does not turn the system on from any outlet in the house. I have to plug the hose into the outlet and then turn the unit on from the switch on the cannister. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A great way to check if your switch in the hose is bad would be to turn the hose sideways in the inlet. If the unit turns on you most likely need a new switch. ... Broan-NuTone CV450 Central Bagged Central System Vacuum

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha
