Are you familiar with electricity?  If not you need to get an electrician to come in and look at it.  Could be fixed quickly without the danger of you getting shocked.  If You are familiar with electricity you can shut the power off.  Take a tester and check it to see if there is power in the socket.  then you could take small tweezers and pull it out in not then you would have to replace the receptical.  Hope that helps.  Just remember be safe and have someone proffessional to do it and no one gets hurt.

The plug prong broke on my Electrolux Epic 6500 SR vacuum. I cut it off and was going to replace it with a new plug. However, I mistakenly rewound the cord and it went all the way into the body.


You will likely have to install a new cord reel. Cord reels have a long tightly wound steel spring which can fly out causing injury if you attempt to take it apart.

The white wire from the plug came loose where does it go? Need to see diagram for wire.


It is the ground wire. If it broke off from the plug, replace the whole plug. There should be a place to attach the white wire to the third round prong on the new plug

What does prong mean


A prong is usually a piece sticking out. Your vacuum has a power cord that plugs into the wall outlet. The metal pieces coming out of the plug that go into the wall outlet are called prongs.

Prong on plug broke off.


You can usually get a replacement plug at any hardware store. It should have instructions on replacement procedures.

The vacuum was on when my son tripped the cord and one prong broke off in the outlet. We patched on another cord. It won't turn on tried other outlets. Can't find reset switch, is there one or did we...


Maybe you got the wires crossed between the two cords. Vacuums have polarized plugs and if wired imcorrectly can definitely cause the vacuum to not work. Try switching over.
In other words, consider current wires as A1/A2 and B1/B2. Disconnect, then connect A1 to B2 and A2 to B1.

vacuum===============A1 A2=======Plug
===============B1 B2=======Plug

Switch to
vacuum===============A1 B2=======Plug
===============B1 A2=======Plug

Try this and see what happens.

When I insert the hose into an vacumn outlet nothing happens. I tried pressing the reset button but still nothing.


First, make sure the unit is still plugged in.
2. Ensure the circuit breaker has not blown. This is easily checked by simply plugging another item into the outlet. If it has blown, flip it back on. If it continues to blow, there's a short in the cord or wiring of the vacuum.
3. Is it just one outlet, or all of them. If it's just one, it needs replaced.
4. Check the prongs on the hose, wands, and power nozzle to ensure they haven't shorted out.
5. Use a multimeter or continuity tester to check wires in the hose. Touch lead of the mm or ct to a prong on the hose, the other lead to the connector on the other end of the hose. Check both connectors. One should show continuity, the other will not. Repeat for other prong. If either prong shows zero, hose needs replaced.
6. Motor is burned out and needs replaced.
There are other problems that could cause this, so I recommend taking it to the Broan-NuTone dealer you got it from for them to check the vacuum for problems.

My kirby vacuum just quit when I was vacuuming my car


Your Kirby has a cut off switch in the front where your hose attaches and also on the side where your bag attaches. If the plastic prong that activates the switch broke off your hose you vac will not turn on. If you put the head back on and make sure your bag is on correctly and the machine runs, you just need a hose end to fix your problem.

If it won't work without a ground wire, but still works with one, then you must have a ground/earth connection to make it work - it sounds like there is a safety device that needs an earth to release, you could almost certainly bypass this relatively easily, but it will be there for a good reason and that would be dangerous. Bearing this in mind, regardless of which 2/3 prong adaptors you use, without an earth connection it will not function without risk probably of electric shock from the case or damage to the vacuum, else the safety device would not be there. Get an electrician to your home, and make him install grounded sockets where necessary (should be all, but at least get a couple). Ungrounded/unearthed domestic power sockets at all domestic AC voltages are lethal eventually, to man or machines. A lot of devices don't need an earth, but especially something with a big motor or a metal case usually does. At least ask a local electrician what he thinks. If you want to do it yourself, an Earth circuit in your home is not too hard to achieve if you have basic wiring skills (and access to the ground floor), but most insurance would dislike the idea - if you want to - post again and I may talk you through it. Hope this helps :) Please be careful :(
