Bissell Powerf DJ68-00161C Upright Bag Vacuum will not power on. I did rinse out the bag compartment but it should be dry now. I use the Style 7 bag & belt. This is the first time it will not power on.

I just received My brand new hoover platinum lightweight upright UH30010 (with canister) which I ordered through ebay and today is just the SECOND time I used it but the check bag light indicator is already flashing. My husband and I live in a 1 bedroom (695 sq t) apartment (no kids or pets). I checked the bag and the dirt is just maybe two inches - far from the limit line showing on the bag..and I remembered the advertisement on TV that it can even last upto to six months depending on the usage

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.

Hi The band snapped the other day on my Vax Swift Turbo upright hoover and i got a new band from a Hoover repair centre. (Im assuming the bloke sold me the correct band). Was tight to go on.
