Hello lukeplayer,
Based on your description, ( first disconnect the plug from the wall recptacle).You will need to open up the Hoover Vacuum Body to gaion access to the internal wiring. In order to better assist you, please provide me with the specific hoover model. In general though, you will need to see where inside the Hoover that wire became detached and then rerun it. Since your cord is already broken, you may be able to strip back more of the outer cord insulation to expose the internal conductors and then route, cut to fit and reinstall them. Hope that helps.. If not, send model details,,,
Regards,
Rick

Vacuum shuts off and on as though it had a loose wire.


Plug in the vacuum and turn it on. If it has rollers, tilt it back or lay it on its side. Then, if it's still running, wiggle the plug wire by the plug to see if it stops and starts. Most vacuum plugs and wires get a lot of abuse from being yanked out of the wall. Buy a heavy duty plug from a hardware store and change the plug, trimming off the bad section of wire.

Power head not working


Steve:


The terminals for the power head plug into a terminal inside the machine. You'll need to unplug the machine from the wall and open the canister to find where the terminal wires plug into. You probably need to open the lower half of the canister to find those terminal plugs. It would help if you have a multimeter. The wires actually run through the hose, so I would check the hose carefully to see if the wires have been damaged there.

Hi, I have the Hoover d14194 bagless pet vacuum..when I switched it on it worked but kept cutting out, I emptied it and cleaned the filters but now it won't even switch on.is there something I can


You could check the motor brushes, if they are worn and check for loose wire connections.
Another possibility is that there may be a break in the lead, plug it in and shake the lead, if it starts and stops you have probably found your problem with a broken lead.

Hoover vaccum u6434-900 switch replace


2 screws remove the handle. 3 screws in the holder for the hand-held beater, and then you can see to the power switch (black with read on/off switch and two copper leads).

Remove the wire clips. Find some safe way to connect the two wire and plug in/out the vac quickly to see if the motor runs. If so, then the switch is bad. Squeeze the ends and push it through to remove.

I found a cheap replacement online from. http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/Hoover-On-Off-Switch-p/28161075.htm

I'm not associated with them, I just found them quickly and the part quickly.

I love the vac, so it's worth a few buck to fix it.

Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless cord prong loose, Vacuum shutting off. Do we have to scrap the vacuum?


Home Depot has cord plugs. Cut off your plug, strip apart the three wires, black, white, green. The new plug will have a green screw for the green ground; a silver screw for the white neutral wire and a brass or gold screw for the black or hot wire.
Connect those wires, ensure that none are touching the others, plug it in and turn it on.
Good Luck,
Gary

Vacuum is turning on and off intermittently


Turn the vacuum ON.
Go to the plug while it is in the outlet, jiggle it and the wire going into it to see if there is a loose connection on that end.
Then go to where the wire enters the vacuum.
Jiggle that to see if that makes the vacuum stop.
If there are no problems found on either end of the wire, the next step it to open the machine and check the connections at the internal switch and the switch itself.
Let us know.

No power from Kirby!!


Determine if the headlight works before anything else. If the light works but the motor won't you have power thru the vac and the problem is internal possibly motor brushes... or a loose wire on the inside connecting to the switch.
If the light goes out is likely a switch or cord problem. Switches on these vacs break more often than cords. What you see on top is the switch button, not the actually internal switch, however a switch does not normally fail while the vac is running, that sounds more like a loose connection or a bad cord.
So isolate the cord. Unplug it at both ends and plug lamp ( or test meter) into the cord into the cord and gently wiggle where the plug end meets the cord. If the lamp goes on and off the issue is the cord. You can buy a replacement specific to the Kirby series and plug it in yourself. If this s does not isolate the problem, take it to a service center. Kirby is very intricate inside.

My hoover keeps cutting off and on, now it doesn't even come on. I have checked the fuse its ok and i can't cheak the wireing,the plug is moulded into the socket.


Chances are your cord was damaged inside the insulation and over time it finally opened. That would cause the cac to not operate any more. If you have access to or one of your friends has a multimeter then you can check the wiring by using that meter in the OHM mode... and placing one lead on each of the two plug terminals at the end of your cord ( not plugged into power of course ) and put the vac switch on.. you should not see an open circuit and read something in the range of 10's of ohms to 100's of ohms ...depending on what path it takes.. ( meaning that with the switch on.. you should be measuring resistance through the motor windings and/or light bulb ..if it has one... That would be a quick test of your wiring integrity... Hope that helps..

Got a numatic henry (green colour) There is a loose wire in plug, but can't open plug to fix. how do i? Thankyou


Hi.

Very simple this one.
The plug is molded type this kind of plug is sealed so you cant make any repairs internally other than change the fuse.

You will need to cut plug off & fit A new 13amp plug.
There are only 2 wires to reconect to new plug these are
BROWN to L
BLUE to N.

& thats it simple.

Carpet Beater for Central Vac


Some of these types of hoses, if there is a male plug on the end that goes into the wall outlet, could be that one side of it is fused and will have to be replaced. When something happens like a short or a bad brush roll stall, this fuse will open up. If you supplied the model number I may habe been able to look it up and see. But if the hose end cuff comes off, then you can check it with an ohm meter to see if one side is open or not.
