Question about Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Electrical problem The light comes on but the motor will not come on when the on button is pressed. Is there a reset button? I thought it was because the bag was full but I just changed the bag and the motor still will not come on.

The light is separate from motor. No reset switch. Check for a fuse but i suspect it may be brushes are worn out and not making contact.Sometimes that starts as an intermittent.
Hopefully one of the coils isn't open circuited.

    I just took apart my EC-12TWT4. The light and the motor are wired parallel. So if the light turns on, the fuse is good. The problem would be the motor. Mine has intermittent problem that motor would come on a sec then won't for the next try. Can't seem to find a pattern. I looked up the part drawing and it seemed to indicate the motor brush problem (or the entire assembly). I guess it's time for me to get a new vacuum now. It has served me well for more than 10 years.

Is there a fuse or a reset button on a Ryobi 10 inch surface planer. My planer stopped working after getting too hot. Now, it won't even trn on....


check the motor for a thermal over load button
to stop it over heating take more lighter cuts as the motor is a small motor compared to what the cut can be

Power mate brush motor not coming on and overload rest not doing anything


I don't believe that there's any penalty for using the proper amount of words to give us a fair idea of what's going on or not, with your machine." Power mate brush motor not coming on" only gives us a bare minimum of info. Does the vac motor run alone, does it still run when you slide the selector to vac & P.M. or does it quit, have you tried pushing the little red reset button down?

Sebo Felix Premium Vacuum cleaner brush will not spin. Not the belt, already checked.


Just the other day we had a customer bring a Felix in to our repair shop with the same problem. Although she'd had the Felix for several years, she'd never realized that one of the buttons on the base is a foot-operated switch (the left hand one as you see it from behind the machine). Hers had been "on" from day one, and never been switched off... until she'd obviously inadvertently pressed it without noticing and switched it off. Then she thought something had broken.
It may be as simple as that. So, does the green light come on when you operate the foot switch? If it does, and the brush doesn't spin, you have most likely got a problem with the motor (or possibly the circuit board) in the base. If the green light does not come on, there is most likely a poor (or broken) electrical connection where the bag compartment plugs in to the base.
I'll gladly try to be more help if you want to post more details.

I have a 9068G and when I plug into the electrical outlet and press the "on" lever, I get nothing. The machine actually quit one time while I was vacuuming. Is there a fuse problem or a reset button? ...


There is no reset button or fuse, yo have a clog / reduced air flow, causing the motor to over heat and turn off. First change the bag, then remove the wands and carpet tool from the vacuum. See if the machine turns on. If not the main motor will need to be replaced. If it turns on and you have suction, check the wands or carpet tool for a clog.

Motor comes on-brush not turning


Most power heads use a belt to turn the brush roller. Open it up and u'll probably find the broken belt laying in there

Reset Button on my Dyson DC 25 Animal


What do you want to reset? Do you mean the motor has stopped working? There is no "reset button". The motor has an automatic cut-out, which will operate if the motor gets too hot and will reset itself when it cools. If the motor will not work when it's cool, then you have an electrical problem which will probably need professional attention.

Where is the reset button on the electolux 2100


There is no reset button on the 2100. If it shuts down, the indicator lights will tell you why. If it has been overheated, there is a self-resetting switch which will shut the motor down and the light will come on to indicate that particular problem. When you turn the machine off and then back on, it should re-start provided you have given the motor ample time to cool down. This will not solve the problem as to why it overheated in the first place. There are also lights and auto-switches that will control full bag and no bag. The machine will not run with no bag and a full bag will cause it to run for a few seconds and shut off.
