Powerhead Keeps Shutting Off

My powerhead keeps shutting off and I have to keep hitting the reset button to start, as soon as I push the powerhead across the rug it shuts off again. Does anyone know how to fix?

    Hi, I took it apart and removed any thread, it worked, then started again. I think it had something to do with the electric connection too. I reconnected the power wand to the pwer head and made sure it was connected correctly. All is well, it works. Thanks for your help.

Open up the power head and check the toothed corners where the power head sits - it sounds like thread has caught up at the sides which can only be removed by opening up the powerhead to clean it.

Tristar exl powerhead reset button won't reset


You should take it to your local vac shop for diagnosis. It may have a bad breaker, but it could have something else wrong. The way to tell if the breaker is bad without a meter, is to connect the 2 wires together and see if the motor runs. BUT BEWARE, if you do this and the motor is binding, it could burn it up. Again, the best thing would be to take it to a professional.

Why does my dyson power head keep shutting off


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your Dyson vacuum is DC23 Motorhead, you should be able to resolve this by checking for and removing any obstructions from the cleaner head, and removing any threads or hair from the brush bar and endcaps. Our Support video will walk you through the process:


If you'd like any additional advice after you've given this a try, you're welcome to get in touch with our experts directly so they can take you through some further diagnostic checks. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

The powerhead on my Hoover Duros will not keep running. If I push the on/off switch it will come back on sometimes, other times when I push it it turns the whole thing off as its supposed to do.


I just had the same problem with my hoover duros, the vacuum was running fine but the powerhead kept going off. I would make a sweep with it and powerhead would be running and then next sweep powerhead would shut off. I had tried checking connection and belt, etc. I thought it was the powerhead. But then I found the problem. On the duros there are 2 pieces of wands that hook powerhead to hose on canister. They both connected and clicked in fine but I decided to check them separately. I hooked just one piece to hose and powerhead and then turned it on and then I did the other piece. ta-dah! that's what it was...it was only one section of the wand. When I hooked them up separately, one piece the powerhead worked totally fine and vacuumed like normal. When I removed that piece of wand and tried the second piece (actually the bottom section when both are hooked together) the powerhead did not work at all. So I just need to get a new section of wand. Hope this helps!

The powerhead keeps needing the reset button pushed, I've changed the belt and cleaned the roller bar, the bag isn't to full, do you have any suggestions?


some time the overload switch need to be changed. If you dont want to can by pass the reset switch. Disconnect the wire to the reset and marette the wires to the power cord that is connected to the moter. Chris

The powerhead brush died. The vacuum works just fine, but the brush doesn't.


there could be 2 reasons for this problem.

one) the powerhead is dead legit as in there is no power coming to it or the motor is actually dead.

2) something jammed in the brush and popped the reset button. The reset button is a red button located as your looking at the back of the powerhead on the right side. Usually a red square. Push it and it SHOULD start up again.

That being said, if you have done the reset button and it still does not work, that unit I beleive has either a 2 or 5 year warranty (cannot remember dont have the documentation in front of me) and if it is still covered under warranty for you, take it to your closest Vacuum repair shop. Do take the hose and powerhead with the cannister unit.

good luck

You have done very well keeping this appliance working since 1975!!!
Lucky you!
I'm not certain you would be able to get replacement parts for this model any longer,
Maybe you will just have to continue with the powerhead only.

Powerhead does not work and the light doesn't work. Canister does work


Some of these has a reset button to push on the powerhead. Check the plug at the end of the hose handle, is it pushed in, if you push on it and it goes further in, then the tube in the handle will have to be replaced, the holding tab broke off of the tube. Pull the wand off and look at the prongs to see if they are burnt. it they are, then that power cord will have to replace as well as the want.

There is a no filter safety device part #1130912-01, maybe the new filter isn't in quite like it should be or this device has gone bad. Also check the brush roll and make sure it turns easily, if not then that could be the cause.
