SOURCE: kenmore canister switch issue

I have the same problem and took it apart. There are two switches: one on the hose and one that activates the motor - on the right side just inside next to the motor. Took the switch apart (V-`0G-3C25-L) and found it was fried - slightly melted.

SOURCE: vacuum will not shut-off

if it has a foot pedal flick it a few times and see if it goes off.if its a switch unplug the vacuum and move the switch from on to off real fast a few time.if you have any contact cleaner you can try to spray a little into the switch while unplugged and work the switch back and forth a few times .the switch might just be dirty.if you don't hear a click when you turn it ioff and on then the switch is probably bad.please leave feedback.i hope i was some help to you

SOURCE: Kenmore 25614/25615 Progressive bagged canister vac won't start

sounds like there was a loose connection or loose wire that came in contact with another wire. check your cord for small burn holes, also could have shorted out in the hose or the wand. If you are comfortable to disassemble the vacuum i can walk you through the troubleshooting process so we can find out what actually went bad. id start with the cord though. let me know if you have any questions or need more assistance

It keeps shutting off every two minutes or so. Its only 7 months old and seldom used.


If this is a bagless vacuum then you might have some filters that need cleaning or you have a clogged airduct in the machine that will not allow it to breath cooler. The motor is overheating and shutting down because it can't breath.

My vacuum is constantly shutting itself off. When


It sounds like you have a blockage somewhere and the air is not passing over the motor to keep it cool. There is usually a thermostat mounted either on or near the motor. The blockage can be anywhere from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper if you have a canister vac) up thru the hose.If you have a canister vac, use a broom handle to push through the hose to clear the blockage. DO NOT ! use a coat hanger or anything that will cut or tare the hose. There are electrical wires in it that have 120 volts and causes quite a shock !
.
If you have an upright vac, start with the duct hose that comes from the part with the brush up to the hose and on to the main canister of the vac
If this does not work, take your vac to a reputable vac shop for repair. Hope this helps,
Joe

I have a red c velvet. My vacuum keeps shutting


Could be you have a filter issue and it is overheating and shutting itself off. Make sure you have not put on the wrong filter type for the machine. Some of the pieces that come in the FJM boxes are not actually filters and people make the mistake of putting them on as filters. The other major problem that could be happening is that there is some problem with the hose itself. On my vacuum it will shut itself off after 2-5 minutes, but the power light remains on. I have to press the up button to get more suction, but that only lasts until it shuts itself off again. If I unplug the hose from the cannister... the power comes on fully and the vac never shuts itself off.
A tech told me that the likelihood is that there is some component or connection in the hose control that is causing faulty shutdown. He told me I would need a new hose costing $175. After a year of trying different things, I am convinced he is right and we need to bite it and just buy a new hose.

Kenmore 26082 Canister Vacuum Shuts off constantly. When Im vaccuuming maybe about 5 minutes later it shuts off. Then give it a few minutes later it turns back on. Whats the problem with this vaccuum


You could have a clog in the hose. Also check your filters, if you haven't changed them in a while, that could be what's suffocating your motor

Dyson shuts off in 5 minutes, then starts up 2-3 minutes laters w


I think there's a good chance of a clog that you haven't found. On the Dyson it's fairly easy to remove several covers that give you access. From the collection canister is a tube that runs toward the base. At the bottom of the tube you can remove a cover where you can check for a clog. Thats basically on the right side of the machine. From the rear side, very low and toward the middle right is a tab that you can push in and remove the tube that goes up into the flexible hose. Thats another good place for a clog to hide.

Sounds funny/shutting off after few minutes


Yup! Clogged hose on the back of the cannister! Unit is designed to shut off for 30 minutes when this happens to protect your motor. Remove top of hose where debris enters the cannister through a filter above it, then remove the other end of the hose from the bottom of the back of the cannister, take it outside and use something long that'll fit inside the hose to force out all the clogged debris and hair through the top of the hose.

Vacum just shut off when vacuuming


Could be clogged. Check hose check sole plate if its an upright, check handle of hose if its a canister type or check the filter inside the bag/bin area i.e the white or black filter either behind the paper bag or cyclone- if its clogged with dirt then the vacuum may have functioned its thermal cut out - which can take up to 45 minutes until the motor cools down and resets itself.

Kenmore Progressive Canister w/Hepa Filter


May have a problem with the motor protector or the motor itself. The motor thermo protector will shut the motor off if it senses it getting hot. So it could be bad.

Motor gets hot in moments and shuts off


True, the motor has safety measures to stop it from overheating... that's why it shut down. You smelled something, so some kind of damage was done. It's possible that the over temp switch itself got fried. Doesn't sound too good from here.
