No power to Bissell 3750-E


I'd test the new fuse with a meter. I'd then plug it in and retest for power and ground to and through the switch and motor. It could be as simple as a loose or pinched wire which grounded out.

Bissell bag type upright won't turn on. No power. How do I fix it?


It would have to safely be taken apart and voltage to the switch measured to know, just be careful.

Most have a thermal fuse or cutout that if the motor gets too hot will trip all power off.

My Henry Hoover cut out and will not work. Emptied bag and replaced fuse but no success.


If no burning or smelling, maybe nothing to do with motor, and if caused by the safety cut-out, it will need about an hour to cool down, and then check filter, bag, and drop coin through hose, pipes and the floor tool, to check for blockages and to stop it running hot. Damaged cable, worn carbon brushes, broken electrical rewind electrical contacts or even the printed circuit board (later models) are the most likely causes.

My series 90L suddenly stopped and would not restart. A check of the circuit breaker found it tripped. The vac would not turn on when the circuit breaker reset. Using an AC voltage sensor indicated power...


From the description it sounds as if there had to be a short in the unit somewhere. This is what would have tripped the breaker. the fact that it is not tripping could mean that there is a fusible link or that the wires or whatever have burned back from the short, and are no longer shorting out.

I have a galaxy obsession deluxe 9.5 kw shower which will run for a little while but then trips the fuse, what could be causing this to happen?


your cable supplying power is not correctly sized for the shower causeing it to overheat and trip the fuse, or your main board fuse isnt matched to the power of the shower

no just on /off switch and direct power to vac motor sounds like its burned up from bag being overfilled , now you have to get to the vac motor test it with switch on to see if its getting power if so then motor is burnt.use an ohms meter for power test.

Dyson dc14 died, no power after burning smrll


It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Nutone cv353 central vac blew up


My guess would be that the motor is done. Impossible to diagnose for sure without seeing it of course. If you were happy with the unit before the trouble, a replacement motor will probably run $250-$300. If you are interested in a new unit, shop around. There are definitely better designed and more powerful units out there, although some of them can cost quite a bit more than $300. Good Luck!!

Power head


If you have checked the power delivery down to the powerhead and you have current running to the powerhead, then you likely have a burned fuse. There is a fuse built into the powerhead motor and is usually located on the field winding. This is not easy for a novice to replace and even most professional repair shops will replace the motor. It is possible to replace the fuse if you know what you're doing, but if the fuse blew, there may be a more serious problem, after all, the fuse is there if the motor starts to experience distress and the fuse will blow to avoid any electrical issues. The fuse can blow if something is jammed into the roller and causes the motor to labor heavily. If this is the case, then the fuse can be replaced safely. If the motor is burning out, then a new fuse will just blow immediately after replacement. What I do is take the fuse out and run the motor without it to see if the motor is still viable and replace the fuse if the motor proves to be o.k.
