\015\012Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5912-900 Upright Steam Vacuum. The yellow disc is supposed to act like a float when the water raises the yellow disks will let you know the water recovery tank is full, and not actually turn off the system. You may want to check with your local vacuum dealer to see if the yellow disk is broken or find out why it is not working correctly. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on.

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
