    The vacuum shut off during use. I emptied the bag, checked for cloggs and to be sure the belt was on. Everything looks good but the vacuum will not come back on.

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

There maybe several things wrong with the vacuum at this point. When a vacuum cleaner doesn't turn on, it usually is 1 of several things. It's either a reset button on the machine, the cord, the plug, the switch or the motor. One of these things have gone bad in your machine.

If you'd be so kind as to let me know your make and model, I can help you diagnosis the vacuum to find out what went bad.

Please email me your make and model to chris.jones@govacuum.com

I have the porter cable 10 gallon tool trigger drywall vac why is it that the bags keep braking. Have had it for years and it's only been about the last two years they rip open way before they are half...


Need some more information, are you vacuuming dry wall dust or wet dust or saw dust ? The reason I ask is sometime their are "upgrades" available for the newer models of vacs you may not be aware of, when I worked at the Big Box H D tool rental center the vac we rented out used a water filtration set up instead of bags U might wont to check newer model for any changes, like you ,I had Craftsman for over 15 yrs. and when it died the replacement vac had a new mod for the filter that I always thought was needed. Good luck , Bret

The bag indicator shows full but the bag is empty


In my bag vac, I have found that when the light shows the bag is full when its not that there is something between where it sucks into the vac to where it empties into the bag...maybe cat hair, dog hair....etc. Try removing the bag and running it, this may allow the air to flow alittle faster and force out the jam. You may also try removing the bottom of the vac, usually just a few screws, and checking to see if you can see the jam. What is happening is this jam is slowing down the air flow and the vac thinks the bag is full....also check the filter where the air leaves the bag area...also look where the bag connects, sometimes trash can hang there.....good luck

My electrolux vac shut off for a full bag. After replacing the bag the vac won't start and the bag full light stays on.What should I be looking for to resolve my problem?


If the suggestion that renevacdoc did not work, it is most likely that your valve assembly(full bag control) has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You will have to take your vac to the Aerus/Electrolux dealer/service store for repair.

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor


The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.
