You have an electrical short somewhere that could be in the cord or a bad switch or a bad motor. If you have access to an electrical meter you could check all of those to find out where your problem is located. If you do not have access try plugging it in and turn it on and then wiggle the cord where it goes into the plug and into the vacuum. If it comes on either of those times that will show you where you need to get it fixed. Good luck!

Unit not working to heat water--cant hear compressor starting up like normal


Did you make sure that it was closed all the way? Sometimes if the water canister is not on all the way it can cause this. And depending on how old the steemer is maybe that part went out. But I would check all the lines to make sure nothing is clogged or pinched

Vacumm just stopped running


1} visually check the power cord from the plug all the way to the unit, as their may be a cut in the cord.
2} see if the pins on the plug are unusually loose by wiggling them one by one, there are two flat prongs and one round one.
3} if none of the above are found I suspect the brushes need replaced in the motor or the power cord.

4} Take the vacuum cleaner to a qualified repair service center.

Vacuum working perfectly and everything stopped. Went to the utility room and found a plastic bag on top of the equipment. Tried the reset button, etc. nothing works.


sounds like a bad relay in the tank just a simple repair but should be done by a vacuum tech or electrician. Could be a motor is nothing is starting at all, but not as likely.

Central Vac will not turn on.


These problems are nearly exclusively caused by a bad circut board and replacing it is the fix. Bad boards can cause many different effects so its nearly impossible to be sure. The 9v signal wire is not enough to short out an entire unit so it is unlikely the hose. If it is a direct connect system and you are pulling power from the 110 somehow that would cause main unit problems but that is unlikely at best. Sounds like a failed board to me.

Best of Luck

Bissell won't turn on


the motor could be ceased up. do you hear a buzzing noise? if you dont hear a buzzing noise, turn it on for about 1 minute, unless it starts smelling hot or starts smoking. if nothing happens after that, try replacing the power cord.

Brushes not spinning after change out


I got my brushes spinning by moving them while the unit was running. For mine it seems that they got stuck from sitting. The brushes move from the air driven motor unit. This works from the vacumm that is being put through the machine. I just spun the brushes while the unit was turned on. Don't get your fingers caught.
