Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

My hoover keeps cutting off and on, now it doesn't even come on. I have checked the fuse its ok and i can't cheak the wireing,the plug is moulded into the socket.


Answers :

Chances are your cord was damaged inside the insulation and over time it finally opened. That would cause the cac to not operate any more. If you have access to or one of your friends has a multimeter then you can check the wiring by using that meter in the OHM mode... and placing one lead on each of the two plug terminals at the end of your cord ( not plugged into power of course ) and put the vac switch on.. you should not see an open circuit and read something in the range of 10's of ohms to 100's of ohms ...depending on what path it takes.. ( meaning that with the switch on.. you should be measuring resistance through the motor windings and/or light bulb ..if it has one... That would be a quick test of your wiring integrity... Hope that helps..

NO POWER My Dyson DCO4 Absolute (purple&lime) won't' switch on. I've checked the plug fuse, wall socket and also filters and hoses on machine all seem fine so think the problem is with the on/off button (maybe loose wire or something) but how do i get to it, is there a special way to remove the green on/off button in order to check the connection? Thankyou in advance for the help i am sure you will be able to provide.


The problem is almost certainly a fatigue break in the flex. These usually happen where the flex enters the handle through the rubber sleeve near the on off switch. You will need to cut about four inches off the wire and reconnect it to the switch. ... Vacuums

It doesn' come on when hose is plugged in. I checked that the unit was plugged in and the socket works.


It could be one of several problems.\015\0121. Ensure the filter is clean. It should be rinsed and dried thoroughly about every six months. Allowing it to go longer results in dirty filter, which results in excessive stain on the motor, which w ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

My dc 05 isnt working and i cant understand why , i have cleaned all filters etc and i also changed the fuse on the plug , which after i didi that it attempted to start but then jus cut out again so i thought the fuse had blown again , so i checked the fuse but its working fine could there still be a blockage somewhere in it or is it something electrical which means my dyson has to go to the dump :(


Most common cause of this problem is a wire broken inside the flex, usually either just where it leaves the plug (easy to fix) or at the other end (more of a problem). In either case, this is no reason to dump the machine - it can be fixed at a fract ... Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Miele s251i vacuum that was working just fine until I umplugged it (while running) and re-plugged it in at a closer socket. When I replugged it, it started for a second and then stopped. Will not start now whether we use the on/off switch or not...suggestions? Would also like to know how to disassemble the unit so I could check out the wiring with a multitester..thanks


I just had exactly the same problem. Opened the vac, checked the circuit\012 next to the motor and it can be clearly seen that the Triac burned thru\012 the PCB. Will replace it and check again. Vac bought long ago, works \012extremely well. ... Miele Vacuums

Does the trivac 1100 have a fuse? My machine has suddenly stopped.I have checked the fuses in the plugs and also made sure that power is at the wall socket.

Have Fresh Aire 2.1 about 4 years was running great then went dead. I cant find where the fuse is and have unit apart. I plug in no fan dim display shows to errors. Unit was pretty dirty at the time. I need schematic and suggestions. Also need to knpw how to remove the honeycomb from the light unit to check for blown bulb. Seems brittle and I could break it with trying to pry with augur or sharp screwdiver object.


I'm sorry this may only be a partial help. But fuses are usually very close to the motor, OR where the switch is located. Pretty easy to find by testing but you have to be or so careful you dont electricute yourself. Now if your testing shows v ... Vacuums

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 just bought kaz model K76P (M) humidifier in Kyoto. I filled it to the right water level (a bit below) and plugged it in (nothing else is plugged in at that socket). The light comes on, but the water doesn't heat up. I can't read Japanese so can't read the instruction manual but it seems a simple procedure: fill with water, set the heating thing the water, plug in. Am I missing something or is the humidifier defect?

I was vacuuming and the power abruptly stopped working. The plug had slightly slid out of the wall socket, but when I put it back in, it wouldn't power up again. The wall socket is working for other appliances.


The first thing to suspect is that the wall plug on the vacuum cleaner is defective, to confirm this you will need to access the on/off switch on the vacuum, there will be three wires coming to the switch from the cord ... Hoover S1361 Bagged Canister Vacuum
