Kenmore Progressive canister model 116.27514700 Problem: Vacuum motor won't turn on. The power head operates, but nothing from the vacuum. Have checked all areas of airflow: hose, bag, motor filter and hepa filter. All are fine. Have checked and rechecked all electrical connections, all seem to be in working order. Vacuum hasn't run for a week or so, so it's not the thermal protector, unless it's defective. Vacuum was running fine last week. Didn't stop operating when using. Went to v

No power. I was getting intermittent power with my miele s558 midsize canister, but it was predicated with me fiddling with the retractable cord to get it to come on and then not move the canister while I was vacuuming. Now I can get no power. I have taken it apart and can see no issues with connectors, cord, casings, etc. It all looks fine. It is about 5 years old and I have had no problems with it.

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

I have a power groom dual cyclonic vacuum. It is less than a year old. The belt is fine, It is not clogged. The brush rotates and it has suction. The problem is that it has the most awful high pitched noise now. Truthfully, the noise is so awful it makes you nauseus. What is the problem?

My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now. But suddenly, it has hardly any suction power and also, hot air seems to be coming out thru the vents on top and also thru the space that's normally used for blowing air OUT....the outlet with the retractable cover located close to the part where the power cable comes out of and retracts into. I've checked the filter and the hose and they are not clogged...I have also put in a new bag. Not keen to buy another vacuum cleaner u

Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?

This vaccuum has a Fan Blade inside connected to the motor that spins to create the suction you feel. After a few years of use (and misuse) the blades on this (plastic) fan will be broken off, thus damaging the unit. These Fans are replaceable if yo ... Vacuums

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

I have had my RCA microwave model # RMW1108 for about 8 months now. It was working fine until yesturday evening. I went to warm up some food for 2 minutes, the microwave itself was on and everything appeared to be working except my food did not get warmed up. I plugged it out and checked all over it for any damage but i could not find anything wrong. What would cause it to just stop heating up the food? Is this type of problem covered in the 1 year manufacturer's warranty.

Our unit is 7024A Electrolux Oxygen 3 - it seems to work great but suddenly, the head or 'power brush' or whatever it is called - has died. I checked by removing the hose and plugging it directly into the body, but it is still dead. Without that motorized head working, the vacuum is useless. Is it worth replacing? The unit is only about 1 year old and has seen light use only. Very frustrating, since it was the most expensive unit in the store:(

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine. We have traced the problem to the wires inside the canister by opening the inside cover to the bag container. We see the power cords going into the canister but we're not able to get to anything. We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

Lately, my Kirby Ultimate G has been acting funny. When I push it forward, it's fine, but when I pull it backward on the carpet, the light on the front flickers and the power flutters off an on. I thought it might be the rollers, so tonight I turned the machine over and pulled out the hair that was wrapped around the roller. However, that did not fix the problem. I should probably backtrack a little bit. In the past, I have had problems with the vacuum running over its own power cord.

The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be r ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Faithful Sebo X1 upright, about 12 years old, stopped working today. I replaced old with new dust bag, checked all dust paths were clear, checked main brush was clear/clean, and drive spindle rotated OK with fingers.

Tried removing all consumables, refitting and turning on a few times to reset, no joy. Removed base cover, both belts were i

At 12 years, this vacuum has had a good long life. I suspect the motor is shot, but it could be due to faulty wiring and connections. A bad switch, break in the power cord, and worn brushes in the motor are other causes.\015\012I recommend ta ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Our Winsdor Sensor XP12 does not show any power or lights, I did check the handle connection, it was fine.

Any time the cord has been damaged badly enough to require taping, the possibility or intermittent "opens" exist. This means the wires are in contact much of the time, but will losed contact periodically. Even if it worked fine seconds ago, jigglin ... Windsor SR12 Sensor Bagged Upright Vacuum

Power head attachment works great when plugged into the hose part of the vacuum. The problem is when I attach it to the tube for normal use there is no power.

Try having someone turn the machine on and off while you pull the cord in and out with the cord more angled towards the on/off switch. Sometimes these models have a break in the cord rewind and will not put the power through to the motor. ... Miele Vacuums

My Riccar 1700 will intermittently lose power while vacuuming. I have had the vacuum for 4 years and this is the second time that I have had this problem. The first time the authorized repairperson said the problem was a dirty hepa filter. The second time, the repairperson put on a "pig-tail"(?) and said that he did not have a shut-down problem when he tested the vacuum in the store. I just picked it up from the store today, brought it home and the same problem occurred within minutes.
