My shop-vac stopped mid-job with no warning


Maybe it over heated or the hose was jammed. Unplug it for a few minutes, check the hose for any stuck debris, then plug it back in. Shop vacs also come with a filter. If the filter is too dirty, it might have shut off as a safety precaution to not cause a fire. Follow directions to clean the filter. Hope this helped. Dee

Hi, I have Pnasonic Vacuum cleaner MC-7650 -2000W,while working machine stops its own.I tried all the way ,all in vain


If it operates less than 15 minutes suspect the filter is blocked and that will cause the motor to heat triggering shut off.

l have seen this and the filter may be washable or not.

Vacum shuts off


If you have BISSELL vacuum, some of our models have a brush reset. Here are the instructions to turn it back on:

If something becomes lodged in the foot and the

brush shuts off, turn the cleaner off and unplug

from the outlet. Remove the obstruction. The

brush will automatically reset when the cleaner
is plugged in and turned back on.

Additionally, you could have dirty filters that are activating a thermal protector switch that shuts the vacuum off if the motor becomes too hot. If this is the case unplug the vacuum, clean any filters, clogs, or obstructions and wait 30 minutes for the unit to cool. Then plug the unit in and it should work. I hope this helps.

Dyson D15 shut off while in use


Hi Mary Ellen,

I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty with your DC15. Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting. For more information on completing these checks please visit:

I have an Dyson animal DC14 that just stopped working. It was plugged into an outlet and running and I walked away for a minute and it shut off. Could it have blown a fuse or something?


when was the last time you cleaned the filter there are two, one in the top and one in bottom. it sounds like you just tripped the temp safety switch. clean the filters and let dry put back together and it should work

I can't find the owner's manual to our shop vac. What's involved in converting it from a dry vac to a wet vac? I think it does both, but I've only ever used it to clean the car.


generally you remove the filter and just use the foam sleeve (if it has one) it should have a float ball in a cage under the filter. this is to keep the water from going into the motor if it gets too full. That is pretty much it. You should have it plugged into a GFCI outlet when using it for wet pick up, also do not pick up flammable or hazardous liquids.

I have a brand new KitchenAid mixer that is 5 years old and never used. I unpacked it this morning and it won't turn on, no noise, no movement, nothing. Help.


Please check manually the motor and see if it moves freely. Now make sure that the power plug and the connections to the switch are not tampered , check the continuity of the plug to the switch and to the motors.
If you notice any dirt or insects make sure that this has not clogged on the motor. If so clean using a degreasing spray- WD40- would be recommended.
If the motor is tight , lightly oil or degrease using the spray while manually rotating.
Once this is done connect the power while taking all precaution. Use the meter to check the flow of the circuit to the switch and to the motor. If there is a trip switch see that it is reset.
If there is power to the motor and still it does not work the brushes might be dirty and might need a cleaning/ reset.

My eureka enviro vac shut off and wont turn back on it was clogged but does not smell burnt . is there a reset or some kind of shut off when it gets clogged?


Same thing happened to me. I checked the owner's manual and it turns out the Eureka Envirovac has a built-in thermal cut-off switch. So anytime the motor gets too hot, it just shuts down. Most of the time this is because it gets plugged or the filter is too dirty. In my case, the dust basket thingy and filter were clogged beyond belief. Probably would help to clean that more regularly in hindsight. Supposedly it will turn back on after the recommended 30 minute wait.
