Question about Hoover U8147-900 WindTunnel V2 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My hoover vacuum is only two months old and it stopped working completely! It won't turn on at all. what do I do? i've tried plugging it in several outlets in my home and it won't turn on!
I found out there was a large dusty clog in my vacuum. I had to clean it out then leave it un-plugged for quite a long time.
There is an automatic shut-off on the vacuum so it doesn't over heat and it won't turn back on it you don't leave it un-plugged and cleaned out.

In this case it will be the switch.

I may have figured out a way to make this thing work. If you find that the problem is the flimsy, floppy piece of plastic that I mentioned above, I think that the thing to do is figure out a way to make the narrow sticking out fin-like section that activates the switch wider. I think what happens is that fin slips over to one side or another and then does flip the switch. What I just did is cut a hard rubber washer into two half circles (or approximate half circles) and attached those on each side of that fin. So now I have a nice wide switch activator. I attached the pieces with exterior mounting tape. I imagine that some sort of adhesive could be used too, as long as it is not something that would dissolve the plastic.

It's a crappy design. Take the two long bolts off that hold the piece with the handle on. You will see the actual switch inside. The switch on the handle activates the real switch via a flimsy floppy piece of plastic. Ours sticks on...what a peice of junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Check fuse of course it may be the mains lead fractured usually where it enters appliance or defective switch. to test, bypass switch, switch on and see if it goes. be careful - disconnect from mains
