Having problems with your Riccar 8955 Upright Vacuum ?

When I plugged in my Riccar Vacuum cleaner - it made a pop sound. The breaker had not been moved - there was no smoke or apparent damage. I tried to depress the restart button and nothing happens. Is there a technique about pushing the restart button. Please advise.


Answers :

Check the cord where it goes into the machine on back. most likely blew out at machine
The button is tiny. You might want to use a pen to push the reset in. A finger maybe too big to push it back in and restart things for you.

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck. Nothing happens when I press the red "ON" button. What could this be? Thanks!

I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely
