Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.

Oreck Upright Hi Redev, I'm not sure what model I have (about 6 years old...upright, looks like the one in the picture). I changed the belt (which was torn) and then the next time I used it, it cut off on me. Now if won't turn on at all. (I turn the switch on and off and nothing happens as if it is not plugged in but it is!). I noticed at the top where the power cord enters the handle, it is all frayed. Could the electrical wires have detached? Anything you think I should check before taking it


The cord could be bad and will ahve to be replaced. It would have to have a problem inside the handle or down by the motor. ... Oreck XL2600 Vacuum

Hey. I believe you will need to replace the main PCB board too. My new handle was sent with a new PCB board. However, I tried just replacing the handle first and it acted the same way you describe. Once I changed the PCB board it worked fine. Hope th ... Hoover Ultra U6430-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

My dyson DC05 has been playing up for a while. The motorhead would start fine with green light on and after a few minutes would stop and light would go green. then the power would go on and off - seemed to only work when I had the handle a certain way. Now no power at all. is there a way that I can check if its the power in the handle section as thats the only way you can turn this machine on? Thanks in advance

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. When power switched on, the two red indicators briefly flash on then off, but nothing more happens, motor does not start - even with power reaching machine. 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

No power, will not turn on. Checked switch on the handle, no burned or other obvious problem. Pulled handle from body and checked the three electrical poles, not burned or dirty. It is an Electrolux 3500 sr epic. Thank you Lucian


Does the plug shaped light on the top come on? If so, the vacuum is getting power, so another problem exists.\015\012\015\012See the following link for trouble-shooting, with recommeded "fixes".\015\012 ... Electrolux Epic 3500 Vacuum

How to replace power cord on Hoover WindTunnel upright vacuum


The aforementioned solutions probably never even attempted this fix on this model. The handle does NOT need to come off. but the 5 screws on the front housing DO: 2 above the light and 3 below it.

I need to replace the cord on an older Hoover upright, model S660, about 1986 vintage. The cord broke where it enters handle. Handle comes apart easily. Just not sure how to pop the switch out without breaking it. Was looking for a manual online to see parts diagram and/or instruction on disassembly and cant seem to find one for that old of vacuum.

Electrolux Genesis 1572F: 1) One of the two spring/clips/whatever that hold the upright upright for storage has busted. What is the part called? Where might I find a spare? Or should I go to a machine shop? 2) The power cord retainer thingy on the back of the handle grip has broken; any idea about part#, name of part, where to look? (I can't find a manual or whatever, exploded parts diagram, etc., online. I guess this is the planned obsolescence thing--after all, the machine is hardly even 2

I bought a Euro Pro Shark Steam Vaccum about 3 yrs ago. Now, suddenly, it won't switch on. I checked the power receptacle and tried other receptacles. It still won't switch on. I wanted to open and check the inside but it needs some special tools (and long screw drivers!). Any suggestions on what I could do?

I just bought a Hoover Power Drive Concept Two Electronic vacuum from the thrift shop. It only needed two belts and seems powerful. But i don't understand what the small red button on the handle marked "Release Drive" means. Thanks for any insight! Anything else i need to know about this machine? Is it a good one? Are there high-performance bags available for it?

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

My Kenmore 116.25812508 power nozzle motor will not run unless I tilt the handle. I checked the connectivity from the circuit board in the power nozzle base to the telescoping wand with an ohm meter and there is no indication of disconnect.

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

Is there a light that comes on when you "turn the power on." If there is no light, and the unit is plugged in, how do you know there is current going to the motor? Sounds like there might be a break in the cord. Examine the cord near the plug end ... Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum
