Generally when orecks do this it's the cord or the switch. If the motor was shot the light would still come on but it wouldn't run. Because the light is off, there's probably no power to the unit. You can bypass the switch if you're capable to see if it's the switch but my money is on the cord. I've included both replacement parts if you don't have somewhere local to get them.

Happy Vacuuming!

My Electrolux Rapido wet&dry won't start. The battery is empty and the blue light flashes when I plug in the charger.


this sounds totally silly but is the power button on the vacuum actually off? Had the same problem, where the battery was completely empty i didn't know my son had switched the vacuum on put it on charge and the light was flashing. I took it off the charging stand pressed the power button then put it back....now charging perfectly. Anyone who doesnt have this appliance will think you sound stupid but its just a clicky button so visually the button looks the same on or off.

The power head of my 1165581590C Kenmore Power mate Whispertone 12 amp vacuum won't open. It is an older model and it desparately needs a clean!


I am not 100% sure of the model number but most of their powerheads come apart quite easily if you know how. There is a light lens cover on the top of your powerhead. On each side of this cover there is a little clip that holds it in place. You can usually see that spot by simply taking your thumb and pushing the light cover to one side or the other. Place a small flat head screwdriver in that slot and gently pry upward.

Once that cover is off, you will see two screws. Remove those two screws. Now simply grab each side of the cover towards the bottom and back of the nozzle and pull out. This should release it from the base. It will lift from forward from back to front..

Reassembly is pretty easy. Just reverse the instructions.

Let me know if this helps.

Wand shutdown & won't come back on


My Hoover did that. Turned out to be that the motor shorted out.

It won't turn on


Have you checked the cords for a possible break preventing the machine from getting power. Use a AC volt meter to diagnose this. Many times the wires at the plug that goes in the wall break and it is the most common problem. Other issues are a defective motor and a defective on/off switch.

When i push the power button and let go it turns off and won't stay on. what might be the problem.


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC27. In case you haven't already tried this, make sure you press down firmly on the power switch when turning the cleaner on. If the switch still won't stay down, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

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.

Cuisanart 10 c programmable coffeemaker won't work; no light comes on & it is plugged in. It has been working fine.


Check it's fuse inside, a blown or open fuse will cause won't work. Similar also happened if the cord wire is already open. Same goes also if the power switch is already defective. Either of those I mentioned will cause the unit not to work.
Thanks for asking.
