Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?
Power just 'clicks' doesn't turn on.
\015 I have a Hoover Central Vac system. It was working fine up until a week ago. When I went to use it, it wouldn't turn on. It is plugged in and has been tested by an electrician and all is good. It just makes a 'clicking' sound when it is turned on or off. Is this a burned out motor or possibly something else? Thanks\015
The motor could be burned out or you have a carbon brush in the motor that is stuck. The motor will need to be taken out and tested on its' own. A electric motor company can test it for you or a Vacuum Shop.

REMOTE CONTROL IS MALFUNCTIONING & NOT TURNING ON CUSHION - Hello. I bought a used (by near new) Shiatsu+ Massaging Cushion from Ebay. When I installed it today the remote control was faulty. When you push the Power button, the blue light comes on, but none of the other buttons work. When you push the Power button again to turn it off, it clicks & turns itself back on again. So it's running but nothing is happening in the massage cushion. I did see a card in the box saying "For the Shiatsu
Before you use this cushion you MUST first 'unlock' the rollers which are held in place by a screw which MUST be removed or the unit will self destruct. The manufacturer provides a hex wrench to remove the shipping screw and a large label on th ... Vacuums
Shark s3325 stopped working while steaming; thinking the unit had ran out of water I allowed unit to cool before refilling, however unit over flowed with only 700ml water added. When I plugged unit back into outlet it would not turn on (red light was not on) but I hear a click upon plugging in unit, when turning unit power button on and when turning on the handle switch. Please advise how to resolve this problem.

I have an Oreck canister vacuum, it says fc1000 on the bottom sticker, it's red. My problem is that the suction in it works perfectly, the belt is ok, and the roller can turn, but the motor doesnt turn it when I turn on the power.
Why doesnt my brush turn on when power is switched on

On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.

I have a NUTONE central vac, when I turn on the power, It sounds like its grinding glass and doesnt suction. Could it be that broken glass got caught in the motor and all I need to do is clean it, or is this the sound of a failed motor?
More likely it's something in the fan. However, I suggest taking it to a vacuum repair shop to make sure. Something could have got into the fan system and is making a racket, but the motor itself won't crunch up glass. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

I have a dyson DC28 vacuum and the power button flashes on and off and the beater bar quit turning.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum).

My Discovery 4210 Roomba will run normally for about 20 minutes on a smooth, wooden floor. It then begins the following sequence: run forward a few inches, turn in a tight counter-clockwise circle a few revolutions, stop, power off a few seconds, power up, repeat cycle from forward run. The sequence can be repeated seemingly endlessly if I don't turn off the power manually. I've replaced the motor, and led revolution sensor system on the left drive wheel.

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.
