Having problems with your Westinghouse WST1600 Upright Vacuum ?

Manual A friend of mine just cleaned out her garage and gave me a Westinghouse WST1600 vacuum that was rarely used. I purchased new #25 fuses and have had the battery pack plugged in for over 10 hours and when I put in into the vacuum and press the on button a green light flashes, but the motor does not start. Can I get this vacuum to work?

What could be the problem is the battery could be shot after not being used for so many years that the life of the battery is done. I would recommend taking it to a local vacuum store and have them take a look at the connections between where the battery goes and the motor.

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.

Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again. Seen canister was full, emptied it and cyclone was quite plugged up so poked out the dirt. Had dog hairs in it as well as some ashes I had just vacuumed. Plugged unit in again and pressed switch. Will not come on. Tried another outlet. Is there a reset button somewhere or could the ashes have seized the motor. What can I try besides taking it to a repair sho
