When a vacuum cuts out while working, it usually indicates overheating. Most have a thermal cut-out, which will reset itself if given time to cool. The cause is usually a blockage of some sort.

I have an Eureka Altima Model 2961AVZ vacuum that suddenly stopped picking up. I have taken it apart, checked the belt which was fine, replaced the hepa filter, and checked for clogs in all the hoses


Is the beater bar actually turning when the power is turned on? Sometimes the belt is fine, but something is jammed and keeping the beater bar from turning. What about the section behind the beater bar, but before the hose upright. I've found large pieces of paper jammed in here and then hair gets caught, ultimately blocking the whole system. Usually you have to turn it over, remove some screws and disconnect the belt and beater bar to get underneath. Just reassemble it in the reverse order to how you took it apart. Double check the hoses and run a "unwound" metal coat hanger through to unclog anything. Does the vacuum " suck" with the hose or tube up to it disconnected? If not you may have a motor that somehow got junk pulled into it. You can open this up as well and clean this out. Of course unplug it all before doing anything.

I have power and air suction, but the beater will not turn and the belt is fine.


Check that you are getting power to the brush roll motor. Many Rainbows have a reset button on the power head.

Compact electra C9 vacuum power head wont turn on


Have you checked the electricity is getting to the motor? You can replace the motor if necessary.

I have a problem with a miele s524 canister vacuum. While the motor is running and you pull out the power cord for more length it shuts off.


Be careful here, the cord inside is connected somewhere to the unit and it may have come loose (the connection) If you can safely get it apart a look will show where the issue is but I would also suggest having a shop do that for you--better safe than sorry.

I have taken henrys lid off to look at the motor now he has stopped working


It's possible when you took the lid off one of the wires has come off a switch or the field. It could also mean the motor has gone. Recommend you get it checked out.

On my old Royal the motor has stopped working


If the carbon brushs are ok, then either the armature or the field is bad. You will have to rebuilt the motor, or replace it, which ever is cheaper and available. You will have to get parts from someone selling Royal parts, or maybe take it to a place that will rebuild it for you.

Motor not turning


Don't forget, the agitator bursh doesn't work when the vacuum is upright. Maybe that is your problem.

Dog chewed power cord


you have to take the machine completely apart and get inside where the motor is.take the cover off there are 3 screws 2 on the left side behind the hose and 1 on the right side back by the wheel.that will take the covr off.now where the upright sets on the base you will see a ******** each side of the motor, take those off,that will seperate the upright from the base.now you have to open the motor housing,there are 4 screws 2 on the front side and 2 on the bach side that will expose the motor and the cord.take out the old cord and splice in the new one.then put it all back together in reverse of how you took it apart.please leave feedback

Replacing a fraayed and twisted power cord on a Hoover windtunnel upright


ok so I took this vaccum apart completely except for the electrical and motor systems. It seems to me that without dismantling both of these systems on the vaccum you can't replace the power cord. And I wouldn't recommend taking them apart unless you know what you are doing since replacing the power cord seems to require cutting the old power cord and soldering the new one onto the old terminals. All in all its probably easier to get a new vaccum altogether.
