Having problems with your Eureka Whirlwind 4480 Upright Vacuum ?

Won't start Have had no problems but decided to the regular cleaning(hose, roller, etc.)but when I went to turn it on- nothing! Not the electical sourcee, so am puzzled.


Answers :

Could be that the cord is bad, the switch button isn't depressing the switch, alot of times pulling the plug out of the outlet by the cord rather then the plug will stretch and break a wire. Sometimes this switch button breaks and then won't turn it on when depressed.

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing
