Answers :

Without seeing it it is impossible to be 100% sure but generally this will indicate a short in the motor. If it is within warranty I would return it to place of purchase for replacement. I work as a service tech for vacuumspot and if it were out of warranty I would probably replace it as steam cleaners are a pain to repair (generally)

After using the vac for 10 minutes or so, the motor starts turning on and off with greater frequency the longer I let it run. Eventually it is on and off so frequently that it has no power. Would this possibly be the 24V relay? I have checked the breaker on the unit and it is not tripped. Does the motor have a thermal overload switch separate from the breaker?

No it dosen't. I fix central vacs all the time and relays usally don't do what you described. They either go out all the way and won't turn on or they will trip and you will have to push the breaker back in. What is probably happening is you have a s ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

Electrolux central vac powerhead (N106M) frequently tripping built-in circuit breaker. It seems to be only when pushing in one direction, why would the motor draw more current in one direction? (it doesn't seem to be related to carpet "grain")

My vacuum stopped working and tripped a circuit breaker in my apartment. I plugged it into a circuit with higher amperage, and the circuit tripped after the vacuum ran for a few seconds then a bit of smoke puffed out of it. I assume the motor is burned out. Can I repair this? Considering buying a refurbished one for around $70 - which is probably less than round trip shipping back to the manufacturer (this is way out of warranty).

The breaker on the vacuum trips after about 3 seconds on. The canister was extremely full and started to smell like burnt wood, we fully cleaned out the unit. Now when the vacuum is turned on, the motor sounds weak, and then turns off in a matter of seconds,and we have to reset the breaker on the vacuum to get it to start again for another few seconds.

This sounds indicative of a worn set of carbon brushes on a dieing motor for a central vac. the armature is ,likely damaged causing teh breaker to blow. Please post back with more details as to make and model. Do not atempt to run the vac ... Vacuums

My Hoover Windtunnel blew the circuit breaker today, and did so again after I reset the breaker and turned off the only other appliance on that circuit. Any advice? Thanks from GrGrandma in Fremont

My Kirby G 2001 upright vacuum wont turn on. I tried another outlet and still nothing. I don't see a breaker switch anywhere. If you know of any common problems I would love to hear them.

Hoover upright has stopped working and tripped the circuit breaker. Where is the fuse located on the hoover ?

Most Hoover uprights do not have fuse. Some canisters doe but it is a thermal shutoff. When the vac overheats and cools down it restarts on its own. You very likly have motor damage, but if lucky you could have an obstruction in the fan causing ... Vacuums
