Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

I opened the cannister to change the bag and when I closed it the motor switch will not turn on. The second position which turns on the attachment for rugs still comes on. We thougth it was the switch so we ordered the part and it is still doing the same thing. Is there a reset button somewhere inside? The only reset button I see is on the attachment which is working.

When I turn on my Kenmore Premier 4.5 Peak HP 10.0 Amp after about a minute of running I get a burning smell. When I opened up the compartment that holds the dust collection bag, and remove the bag I found a filter. The filter was minimally dusty and has been cleaned. After sniffing around, I could not identify the source of the smell.

Hello, My Electrolux Renaissance is about 12 years old. It worked great for years, but now it keeps turning itself off...about every 15 seconds or so. The bag was just changed recently, too. Is there an easy, (and cheap) fix or should I start shopping for a new one?? Thanks!

The hose works great, but the head of the vaccuum does not pick up anything !!! I checked every opening that may have been clogged, but nothing came up. When I hold my hand under the brush/roller, it seems to be putting out more air than intaking air. Particles "dance" on the carpet, but don't get "sucked up" into the vaccuum ? I have had the vaccuum only 1 year, so the brushes should not be a problem. I changed the bag, and checked the belt. The belt and brushes seem to be OK. ?

Over heating? My 10 gallon 4HP shop vac has started shutting off after about 30 sec. after I turn it on to use. It smells real hot after I shut it off. I have changed the filter and the bag, which did not solve the problem. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? It's only about 31/2 years old and I really don't use it all that much, mainly for getting up dust and cob-webs from my garage.

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.

Panasonic NN-SD776S microwave Start button stopped working. I know, the first thought is a bad door switch because "everyone knows a microwave should not turn on if the door is open."
