Re: it won't start
Dont fully understand what you mean by (It was plugged going into the empty cylinder)
If it is dead check mains lead to switch for any internal break in the lead,This is very common it usually breaks where it enters the machine.
If its not the mains lead Check switch unit.
I doubt its the motor unless it was giving a burning smell with a popping noise,

If the hoover switches on then you may have a blockage in the cleaning head or pipe. If it does not switch on the you may have a break in the cable where it enters the machine. It is quite common for the cable to break there.
I have had this happen to me (DC14 Animal). This was my experience:
If you have recently had the motor filter (the "permanent" one under the dust container, right on top of the motor) out and have replaced it, it is important to make sure that the filter cover is down properly, otherwise the canister will not release.
I got the dust container off by pushing it downwards, quite hard before pressing the release button. You really will have to push straight down on it quite hard. Then investigate why the dust container is so high that it will not release.
I had the same problem. It looks like the seal on the lid on the bottom of the cylinder has fallen out when it was emptied. There is no longer a proper vacuum being created so you don't get the cyclone effect and the dirt doesn't collect where its supposed to. it just clogs up the filter. I put sellotape to seal the lid and it works fine.
this sounds totally silly but is the power button on the vacuum actually off? Had the same problem, where the battery was completely empty i didn't know my son had switched the vacuum on put it on charge and the light was flashing. I took it off the charging stand pressed the power button then put it back....now charging perfectly. Anyone who doesnt have this appliance will think you sound stupid but its just a clicky button so visually the button looks the same on or off.
You could check the motor brushes, if they are worn and check for loose wire connections. Another possibility is that there may be a break in the lead, plug it in and shake the lead, if it starts and stops you have probably found your problem with a broken lead.
Hi the problem you are more than likely having is with the wires that go into the vacume they are not that secure and do work loose.
now if you remove the cylinder that you empty, now you see where the wire goes into the back of the vac, well if you look at the front of the vac in the same place the wires go into the vac you will see a little inspection panel held on with star shaped screws. you need to undo this to get to the wires
once undone you will see how the wires are secured into the vac you need to undo the connectors screws that secure the wire and remove the mains wire from the vac now cut about 5 inches off the wire and then peel the outer cable back and cut it back so the two inner wires stick out as much as they used to, then refit the wires in the vac and close it all back up
dont do this with it plugged in as you will give yourself a shock.
when its back together check the fuse in the plug it may need changing due to the short its best if you change it anyway, then switch the vac on and see if it works
give me a shout back if it dont.
please dont mess with it if you are unsure what you are doing as you could cause harm to you and others if you dont put it back together properly let me know how you get on ok
