I just purchased a black and decker corded hand vac/blower/inflator. I plugged it in (for the first time ever) it started and then shut off immediately. I tried different outlets thinking it blew a circuit in the first one. However it still won't start. Very frustrating!


Unfortunately those units are prone to breakage they are also usually a sealed unit (not able to take apart). The best thing to do would be take it back where you bought it and try to get your money back. They just aren't worth fixing. V ... Black & Decker Vacuums

Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again. Seen canister was full, emptied it and cyclone was quite plugged up so poked out the dirt. Had dog hairs in it as well as some ashes I had just vacuumed. Plugged unit in again and pressed switch. Will not come on. Tried another outlet. Is there a reset button somewhere or could the ashes have seized the motor. What can I try besides taking it to a repair sho

Hooked everything up per directions. I plugged it in to the closest electrical outlet and nothing happened. The lights did not light up, the connected wall control and sensors leds do not light up. It appears the unit doesn't have power. The electrical outlet socket is fine as everything else I plug into it works fine. I have tried every other electrical outlet available. The unit won't power on from any outlet, and all of those outlets run other things, like power tools an refrigerators

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

I recently purchased a Sunbeam Artista EM5900 model coffee machine. I plugged it in and pressed the 'Power' button only to find the power go out. I understand this is short circuiting, so I went and turned the power back on. I then moved the machine to a different powerpoint and plugged it in - the same problem happened and I have tried it countless times on various other powerpoints. Help please?

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?

I had plugged it in to use it, turned it on and instantly it made a pop sound, smelled of electrical, and would not turn on after. i even waited for a while let the smell go away and tried a different plug in the house and still no operation of any kind. Is there an internal fuse that i could check on this? where is it located?


Sorry there is no fuse in the vacuum. It sounds like there is a short somewhere when they manufactured it. There is no way to fix yourself you will need to take to a repair shop\015\012\015\012Good luck ... Vacuums

My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stopped working while I was using it.

I have the same problem as discussed above. My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stops working while using it. The bottom feels hot when this happens. When it first occurred, I emptied the canister and even tried a different plug. It did not turn back on for over an hour. When it did turn back on, it would die again after about 3-5 minutes of use. I don't know what else to try. I have washed the secondary filters, let them air dry and replaced them and this did not help the problem. My friend,
