I've been using a small shop vac in the seller to vacuum up dust, sawdust etc. I have emptied the inside and the filter looks laden with dust. It does not "****" any longer. What is wrong and what do I do to fix it?

My brand-new Hoover Windtunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Bagless vac simply shut off while I was using it and now I can't get it to turn back on. I've emptied the dirt collection bin and let the unit sit unplugged for 30 minutes to reset the Thermal Protector as per the manual. I've even tried a few different outlets just in case a fuse got tripped, but the vac still won't turn on. What happened? Do I need to return this vac to the store? I just bought it 5 hours ago.

The steam mop was only used 3 times.stopped working. It has now stopped working altogether. I have only had it for a month. I did not save the receipt because after the third time working I thought it was okay. I am very disappointed and have a hand shop vac of Sharks which has been working for a year. I have been discouraged from buying another one of your products now that the steam mop has quit working after 3 times. I followed the exact instructions how to use it. Model S3101/ 120V 60HZ
