Having problems with your Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
Turns off as soon as I turn it on.
\015 Vacuum was working great. Did the living room, hallway, and went to do my sons room. As I was going to my sons room, it came unplugged. I moved the plug to the hallway, and now as soon as I turn it on it turns right back off and smells like something is burning. What could have made it do this?\015
Almost certainly you have damaged the flex and it will have to be re-wired. You should never unplug the machine by pulling on the flex, and this why.

Over heating Light Comes on as soon as I try to turn the unit on. I have a Miele S558 Silver Moon vacuum that has only been used once and it shut off and will not come back on. The overheating light comes on as soon as I try to switch speeds on the handle or turn the unit on at the canister, and the vacuum will not run. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
The belt is stretched and needs replacement.(Belt # 38528036) . The brush is not turning against resistance. ... Hoover Vacuums

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that. I think this happened once before and maybe they replaced a circuit board(?).
