Make sure no other appliance is running at the same time. Some other appliance on the same house line is causing the fuse to overload. Example: If we have the space heater on in the bedroom and my wife tries to use her hair dryer then the fuse blows as they are both on the same circuit.
I think it may be from the same issue stated above--the thermal fuse blew. I have the exact same problem. This is what someone posted earlier:
There's a thermal fuse inside. If it gets too hot, the fuse will blow and the thing won't turn on. It has a 216 C temp limit. You can find thermal fuses at radio shack for less than 5$. If you're adventurous enough, you can find the fuse in line of a white wire under a fiberglass outer and heat shrink inner shielding screwed against the bottom of the tank. Now to figure out how to get to it!!!

there are usually two saefty devices in the vacuum motor ... one is an overtemp resetable fuse .. if the motor gets too hot (lack of air flow) then this temporarily trips .. the machine wont work until it has cooled .. the second line of defense is a perminant thermal fuse (looks like a bullit) .. if the first resetable fuse fails or if the motor gets way too hot then the perminant fuse trips (sometimes they just go bad) .. thats usually rather difficult to get to .. its mounted inside the motor or on the motor if you are lucky .. inside its burried in the windings ... often the motor is just replaced instead of trying to dig out and replace the imbedded thermal fuse .. you could also have a bad switch or broken wire at either end of the line cord .. that happens frequently at the plug if the cord is pulled to unplug it .. you can try pushing the wire into the plug to see if it comes on .. if that works then you must install a new plug .
Vacuum works with the battery but does not work with 120 volt. Every time I plug it in it blows the internal fuse. I have replaced the fuse inside the vaccum several times and every time i plug it in it blows. What do you think it could be?
Shark steamer that the light is not on and will not heat up. I have found that there is a in line slow blow fuse in side. replace this fuse IF you can find one and the steamer will work. If you let the unit run dry and leave the unit on it will get hot and blow the fuse!
I am looking for the fuse myself. good luck! Dan FL.
