This unit operates on 12-18v dc and 120v ac. Inside the unit are two converter circuit boards. The motor is DC so the 120 v has be converter using the AC to DC circuit board. If you use one of three different volt batteries (12, 14.4, or 18v) then the DC converter circuit board drops the voltage to 12-12.5 volts. Typically, when one of these circuit boards goes bad it will cause a small in-line 15 amp fuse to trip. You can replace the fuse but it will blow again untill you replace the circuit board. Usually one power source will work and the other will not. If the battery works (DC-DC circuit board - ok) but the A/C power (AC-DC c.b.) trips the fuse, then this is what you need to change. You can buy and factory fuse (soldered tips and covered in black shrink wrap) or buy a simple universal fit one that will be easily to replace once you have corrected the problem.

Hello, I have a Hoover 3200 Turbo Power vaccum. while the motor appears to be working fine the vaccum no longer picks up the dirt.

When I was using my Bissell ProHeat 7901, I smelled something hot (almost burnt) and turned off the vaccum. When I turned it back on, everything seemed to be working, but the vaccum part was not making the same sound. The bristles are still turning, but it isn't picking up as much and is leaving quite a bit of lint on the carpet. Could the belts be worn? How do I tell? Thanks!

On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.
