If the alarm went off when you plugged in your vacum it must be on the same circuit or on the rcd side of the consumer unit which must have tripped when you plugged in the vacum if you rewire the fuse or just turn on the trip on the breaker or on the rcd then reset your alarm and this doesnt sort it out or it keeps repeating then then ring a local electrician

Fridge is sounding alarm

Does it need a defrost? If you just plugged it in for the first time check another outlet it could be a reverse polarity alarm. Happens when the electrician hooks up a plug backwards.

Adt alarm has no power in it or sensors

Hello. You have lost power to your transformer. Look for a biege box about 3.5 inches square plugged into an outlet near the main panel. Chances are the wire going to it came loose. Other chance can be the tech. Plugged the transformer into a swtched outlet. Give that a try...phil

DSC Alarm system

It could be the battery in the main box or the power adapter for that box. First make sure that wall adapter is plugged in and that that outlet has power ( plug something else, like a lamp, in.) If the outlet is good and the adapter was plugged in properly you will need a multimeter to check the battery or adapter or you could just try a new battery.

it sounds like the anti-theft module needs to be reset so it won`t go off when it shouldn`t.the module thinks the car is being stollen as it went into anti-theft mode and needs to be reset.usually the light for this problem(gross vacume leak) will reset on its own when the computer goes through its test procedure for the evap system and detects no fault.

Vacuum working perfectly and everything stopped. Went to the utility room and found a plastic bag on top of the equipment. Tried the reset button, etc. nothing works.

sounds like a bad relay in the tank just a simple repair but should be done by a vacuum tech or electrician. Could be a motor is nothing is starting at all, but not as likely.

Fire department television broke

First thing first, make sure the outlet it is plugged into actually will work, plug a vacume cleaner or electric heater in the outlet and see if they work (or other device that pulls alot of power like a blender or toaster).

If the outlet test good then pull the back of the tv off (carefully) look for a glass fuse near where the power plug goes into the set replace that if the line in the middle is broken or missing, if you can't see through it then just replace it.

If that doesn't work, replace the entire power supply.

My old vacume had the same problem - the wire had a 'plug' on both ends. 1 to the wall outlet and 1 to the vacume, which you could pull out of the vacume. It was making poor contact at the vacume and eventialy burned out (melted)
See if the plug/wire to the unit is removable, if so is it damaged?,
could need a cleaning, or it may not be pushed in all the way.

Good Luck
