Just quit working...does this vacuum have a reset switch and if so, where is it?

    Figured it out! Inside the wind tunnel at the top is a double filter...one corregated paper type and one grey sponge that fits on the paper one...both were solid clogged with fine dust...took them outside, used my air compresser to blow them both out...took about 4 minutes of blowing on the foam filter...and a couple of minutes on the paper one...reinstalled them and the vacuum works fine....just heavily clogged up! Did not know about this and used the vacuum for over 6 months just emptying the lower trap door! Should have read the manual when we got it, but that got lost! Hope this helps someone else...the auto switch to prevent burnout must be working well. All is good now!

I have an Electrolux upright with problems with the rollers. The reset switch that sticks out of the broke off several years ago and it worked fine. My wife sucked some string into the rollers and they...


Since the vacuum does reset, I suspect a different problem. If strings, hair, and similar items are picked up, they also wind around the ends of the brush, which would result in the roller being too tight to spin, thus shutting off the motor. You probably won't be able to see the ends without taking the powerhead apart. The problem with the consumer taking it apart is getting it reassembled correctly.
I do recommend getting the switch replaced, though. Take the vacuum to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for repair and cleaning. Being an older one it probably needs it.

Have a rainbow e-2 that was running and quit.


Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum. There is a safety switch on all E series and E2 series Rainbow vacuums, that keep it from running without the water basin on it.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

The machine won't turn on. The on/off switch does


This could be a faulty cable or switch, but could also be a faulty motor.
The motor also has a built in over-current protection device which normally automatically resets itself, but if the motor has a serious fault or the over-current device itself is faulty then this could be the cause of the lack of continuity.
Both the switch and motor are available quite cheaply on eBay2_bing.gif, but fitting new ones requires good DIY skills (especially the motor), and some unusual tools (Torx drivers).
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some great info on repairing your machine, but if you dont feel you can repair it yourself, time to call a vacuum repairer or the Dyson helpline

I have to reset my Beam Central vac quite often!!!


Check to see if there is a clog in the system. Something is causing stress on your motor causing it to switch off. Or it could be the motor itself failing.

First check for a clog, if you can't find anything wrong, call Beam for assistance

Hoover SteamVac quit working.


there is no reset button to this machine. in some cases if the machine stops or makes a weird noise or a smell like electrical, most likely it's the motor that went out or you could just have a switch that went out. if you didn't have any of these things happen, then take it to your local vac shop to get an est. done to see if would be worthe replacing the broken things or would it be better to buy another machine. hope this help's

Roller motor on a DC17 dyson wont turn on


there is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor. try it

Eureka Boss vacuum just quit


You have a clog in the hose (or somewhere) most likely the hose though. Find the clog -clean it out-let the machine cool down and you are back in business. This is really a good feature of the Eurekas because rather than continue to run and burn up the motor it shuts off -you clean it out and your vacuum is saved.
