I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

I have a Kenmore Elegance Vacuum with Dirt Sensor, Model # 116.30750400C, Serial number M41901532. When vacuuming the carpet the power head will work for 3-6 mins then automatically shut off, power is still there and lights work but the power head motor turns off and the suction stops. I will turn it off and on, check the outlet, flick the on off buttons...nothing. I will turn it off for a couple minutes and it turns back on and runs like normal.

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions
Many vacuums have internal thermal switches that need to cool to allow the vac to operate. After 30 minutes, check all 3 air filters and try again.\012Gary ... Bosch BSG71310UC Bagged Canister Vacuum
Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.
This sounds like it might be an overheating problem. \015\012\015\012Some vacuum motors are fitted with thermal cut out fuses or thermistors which cut off the flow of electricity to the motor when the temperature gets to high. It is possi ... Lindhaus Activa 30-38 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Kenmore Progressive Upright Vacuum - Purple, and it worked just fine. I emptied the canister (like always) and put it back in place. I turned on the vacuum to it immediately shutting down (motor) and only the lights come on. There is no movement/noise/suction at all! Any suggestions? I have tried everything. I have no idea why it did this.
Make sure that something didn't fall into the fan assembly in the base when the canister was removed. The motor should have an overload reset switch. Try moving the motor manually (power plug out) to make sure that it isn't bound up. ... Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

My vacuum cleaner will run for a few minutes and then shuts off. The plug light on the panel blinks. I thought the motor was shut, but after a long time it will turn on again, but again, only for a few minutes and then shuts off again. Any ideas? I bought an Oxygen Ultra a few years ago, but I don't like it nearly as much as the old Epic.

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.

Please unplug and check the wire carefully.Also please post the make model a ... Kenmore 23913 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
I was using my easy flow central vacuum, and shut it off. When I went to start it up again 5 min later, it would not turn on. I emptied out the filter, and reset the switch.

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on.

Yet when i push it forward it trys to start and turns on for a second and turn off - almost like the connector isn't connecting the hose to the head very well anymore.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
