Check to see if there are any breaks in the cord, like any of the insulation missing.
Also unplug it and feel along the cord for any unusual lumps.

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.

My cord has to be pushed in to socket and giggled to get the vacuum to have power? Any suggestions?


You might want to remove the electric plug from the wall and spread the prongs just a little bit, it sounds like the plug might be loose in the wall socket.....try it in another wall socket and see if the problem continues to exist...generally it you get the same result from similar wall sockets...you may have looseness in the electrical plug...meaning that you might have been unplugging the cord by grabbing the cord and snatching versus unplugging with the plug itself. Hope this helps.

My Model 2961 Eureka wont take power now?


Hi,

Anytime that you smell that electrical burning smell on a vacuum cleaner, this is the motor going bad. There are two distinctive burning smells in fixing vacuum cleaners, the electrical burning smell which is the motor, and a rubber burning smell which is the belt.

The bagless vacuums cleaners in general, their motors last usually no more then 3-5 years. The motor in bagless vacuums work much harder then the motors in their bagged counterparts.

The motors in Eureka vacuums can range in price from $70-$120. If you can provide me with the exact model number on your vacuum cleaner (can be found on the bottom or the back of the machine on the sticker that also contains the serial number) I will be able to get you the part number, and price of the motor that's used in your vacuum.

It may be worth considering to just get a new vacuum cleaner at this point. If you'd like me to give you a personalized recommendation specifically for your unique cleaning needs, I'd be honored to do so. Please just let me know what types of floors you have mostly in the home and I'll be happy to share my knowledge of vacuum cleaners.

I hope this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be sure to rate the repair helpful so other Fixya users that have this same problem can easily find the answer.

Thanks so much,

My Heritage II just lost power in the middle of vacuuming. The switch will turn on but no power.??? What is wrong?


It could be the switch that has become defective (the 'feel' of the switch may be different, but needs to be checked with a meter). Another possibility is that the cord has developed a loose connection at or near the power plug. Turn the switch on and wiggle/push the cord near the plug. An intermittent connection is indicated by the motor turning on and off. If so, cut the plug from the cord (they are usually a molded device that can't be serviced) and install a replacement plug from a hardware store or home center. If the switch is determined to be bad, order a new one from an appliance parts store or vacuum repair center. Good luck!

Vacuum won't turn on when plugged in and switch is turned on


The easy answer to this problem is you need a new cord. Any fit all 20 to 35 foot two wire cord will work. However, you will need to take disassemble the almost the entire vacuum to test the current cord to see if it is bad. There are a lot of pieces to take off to get to the inside of the vacuum where the cord enters from the back. You could also have a bad motor.

Vacuum will not turn on


Kenmore Model 116, behind the Vacuum cleaner there is a Motor Reset switch which you need to press.
1. Make sure the Vacuum Cleaner is unplugged.
2. Press the reset button gently in with a pen.
3. Plug back the Vacuum cleaner and it should work.
