\015 My on/off switch quit working. was always on for awhile but is now off unless I hold the button down. Can I take the handle apart and clean the contacts?\015

Answers :

Yes, you can, here's how:

My vacuum had this exact same problem, but was out of warranty because \015\012it was remanufactured. Thankfully, it's a very quick, five-minute fix.
  1. UNPLUG The Vacuum!
  2. \015\012
  3. Remove the cannister.
  4. \015\012
  5. Extend the handle and remove it.
  6. \015\012
  7. Remove the two torx (T-15) screws behind the power button, where the handle normally stows.
  8. \015\012
  9. There are four tabs holding the front plate containing the power button on; use your screwdriver to release them.
  10. \015\012
  11. Gently pull the front plate off.
  12. \015\012
  13. The switch on the right is the power button. Remove it,\015\012 try clicking it a few times; if it sticks, great! Replace it and \015\012reassemble, otherwise you'll need to replace it.

And finally, in case your switch assembly falls apart during dissassembly, here is how it should look reassembled:

Vacuum cleaner We have a panasonic MC-E47electronic which seems dead. It has a speed control which we nearly always had on full anyway. Have tested continuity through plug, flex and on/off switch and all OK. from then is open circuit through speed control which consist of slide rheostat and mystery small green box (2cm x 2cm x 1cm approx). Across motor there is negligable resistance. Machine is quite old and not worth paying out loads on poarts if it is safe to bypass speed control and connect

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity

My Sanitaire Commercial vacuum SC5815 A-2 does not turn on. It is quite new and seems to be "totally dead." Serial number: 0632005978 It is firmly plugged in, I have tried numerous electrical outlets, and I have tried the on-off switch numerous times. I wonder if there is a simple circuit breaker switch somewhere on the vacuum that I could switch without going to a repair shop? Or, I wonder if some latch is loose that shuts off the current, but I have checked the latches and they are clo

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine. We have traced the problem to the wires inside the canister by opening the inside cover to the bag container. We see the power cords going into the canister but we're not able to get to anything. We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

Haier 65 pt Dehumidifier. I purchased a new Haier Dehumidifier 2 years ago. I believe this is the third season and it had been working great. Very quite and on humid day's, I have to empty it every 10-12 hrs. Two day's ago it just stopped working, no indicator lights. I plugged it into another outlet to be sure with the same result. I believe it is either the bucket switch or main switch. What do you think and where can I get parts. I live in MA.

The one of the controllers for the electric blanket keeps flashing an "e". The other controller is fine. We switched controllers and the same thing happened. We have unplugged the blanket for several minutes and turned off the controller for several minutes. It always goes back to displaying the "e". It is a warmspun blanket and I cannot find any information on the company so that I can contact them to see about the 5 year warranty.

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse

I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely

The motor is having a problem.There might be two reasons...either the coils inside it got heated up which will be needing rewinding or you can buy a new motor or there r capacitors attached sometimes u can make a check on that also if that's gone Kap ... Vacuums
