For those not so electrically adept there is a simpler solution. if you buy a small fridge magnet with a clip from a dollar store, pop out the small round magnet and crazy glue it to the sensor located on the bottom left of the inside housing of the larger pad filter the unit will run. The bottom left part is grey and shaped like a square.

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming. I replaced the motor,which didn't fix it. Is the reset switch next on my list? T

The battery will not charge in the sweeper. I can remove the battery and wire it to the power supply for charging and it will charge up and run the sweeper. So the power supply and the battery are both good. Obviously there is a circuit failure in the on board charging control. Anyone know a fix or a likely faulty component?

I was using my Heritage 11 vacumn with the hose attachment and the motor shut down like the power went off .When you push the switch on the housing the light comes on but the motor does not run.

Hi, the motor could be overheating. Most vacuums have a heat sensor that shuts the vac. off if there is a clog. Let it sit, feel if it's hot. If so you may have a blockage of dirt etc. Try to clear it, let it cool and tart it up. I hope this helps, i ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum

My Eureka/The Boss doesn't seem to have the suction power it had. However, when I place my hand under the hose, it has good suction, then when I try to pull in a small particle, it doesn't, unless I have the hose nozzle completely over the particle. The vac is 10 yrs. old. I cleaned everything. Someone said the belt. Would the belt matter if the hose doesn't **** well? It is just old and worn out? It did shut off recently do to overheating.

Heater/fan issues I have a Honeywell - Year Round Fan with 1500W Heater that shuts off within five minutes if the fan is not running too. I don't have the oners manual and can't find one online. I have read several reviews that say the same thing. The heat does do much good when the fan above it is blowing cold air. Any ideas?

There is a safety switch which will shut the heater element off if the fan doesn't run. If the fan doesn't circulate air, the element would overheat and could possibly start a fire, so the switch will shut the element down. I'm not familiar with this ... Vacuums
