Having problems with your GE 106766 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Overfull bag caused shutdown-will not restart

\015 I made the mistake of not emptying/changing my bag when it was full. \015\012I no there is some kind of thermal cutout in there but i cannot see how to access anything. \015\012Is the unit repairable?\015

Answers :

There can be quite a number of causes for these problems. A lot of the time there is a clog that the consumer has not found. If the motor sounds like it is running at a high pitched noise, and there is low or no suction, then that's your problem.
\015\012With the over full bag problem, I might have to know a little more information. There may be a reset button on the machine. You are going to want to check around the base of the machine where the brush roll is. Also, a good thing to do is to just change the bag and give the machine about 15 minutes before you turn it back on. It's high unlikely that you shorted-out the thermal protector with one time of not changing the bag.

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

Overheated vacuum After I finished vacuuming the library last night I changed the bag and shook out both filters and vacuum would not restart. The canister unit felt real warm to the touch but I had been using it a least 1/2 hour non stop. The bag was pretty full but not overly so. It's a Simplicity canister with power head.

Stops Immediately. We have a Beam Serenity model 2100 installed in the home and when the hose is inserted into the wall it turns on for a few seconds and then shuts off on it's own. Turning the handle's power switch off/on restarts the unit only to have it once again stop after a few more seconds. The canaster is clean. What could be causing this stopping issue? Thanks.

Our miele red star(s314i) vacuum was running great and quit suddenly. It had not been running for a very long time and just quit. Newish bag, no clogs in hose and doesn't seem overly hot. the over heated warning light did not come on. I've waited 30 plus minutes to try to restart and no luck. Any ideas
