Found the clog and cleaned it out. Heres the problem...now the power nozzle light comes on and the vacuum "on" is lite up red, but it will not come on. Checked the filters and the bag. It certaintly seems like the top and bottom are meeting up to latch into each other, but I have no power. Help!!

I have a Wertheim 4808 Barrel vacuum cleaner that has suddenly stopped working. I believe that there is a problem with the electrical cord connection inside. I have tried unsuccessfully to open the compartment that leads to that area. One side unscrewed with a phillips head screwdriver but the other side seems to have a different type of fixing screw that I am unable to undo. It is awkward to get at and in a deep slot and the head of the fixing screw? is not visible.

Bisell Healthy home vacuum stopped working. The troubleshooting guide said there could be a problem in the connection at the handle. None of the phillips screwdrivers we have seem to work in removing the screw that holds the handle to the vacuum. What size phillips screw driver should we be using?

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose.
