Every time we plug in the vaccum hose into the wall recepticle the vaacuum turns on for half a second and then blows the circuit breaker. This just started a few days ago. We tried replacing the 20 amp circuit breaker but it doesn't help. When we push the reset button on the unit it buzzes loud for a split second and then goes silent. After this nothing happens when we plug in the vacuum into the recepticle.

SOURCE: My vacuum is making a horrible noise!

This model by Dirt Devil is notoriously noisy anyway. Flip the model over on its side and check the floor plate where the brush is spinning; undo the screws and check the condition of your drive belt. The Dynamite and the Quick Vibe uprights are both very noisy - I couldnt wait to get rid of both of mine!

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks

from the problem you are describing, you are on the right track of locating the issue. It sound as if you hav a blockage in the lower foot of the vacuum.

SOURCE: over heats and shuts off, wont start again untill

This unit need disassembly and internal cleansing. Yep, it's dirty inside. The motor probably is dirty also and should be blown out with an air compressor.

I have a 4 yr old vx6000c central vac that constantly blows house breaker


This unit requires a 15AMP 120 VOLT dedicated circuit. If there are other appliances or items on this central vacuum circuit, this could overload the circuit causing it to pop. The other issue that could be occurring is that the central vacuum is on a GFI circuit or ARC fault circuit. Central Vacuum Units are not designed to run on these types of electrical circuits.

I have a George vacuum and it's died. I have


Of course, you should double check the plug-in recepticle - just to be sure you have not thrown a house breaker. The easiest way is to simply plug something else into the same recepticle. If you simply move the vac plug, you may choose another recepticle oparating on the same breaker.

How did you check the fuse? Fuses can fool you. As a general repair tech, I learned long ago not to rely on my eyes. I have a multimeter and do an ohm check - because sometimes a fuse can look ok, but actually be burned in-two where its not easy to see.

All that ruled out, the most common thing that stops functioning when a vac dies is the switch.
Don
That ruled out, when vacs die it usually the switch.

Ridgid shop vac is not sucking


Check the intake hose for a blockage. Attach the hose to the exhaust outlet and turn the vacuum on. If no extracted air is blowing out of it the hose is totally clogged up

Was vacuuming with no problem and the vaccum just shut off. . .what can I do?


Check that the electrical cord if fully inserted in the
wall outlet. See if the vac has a circuit breaker switch
on the electrical plug called a GCFI,or on the vac itself,which probably has tripped. Good luck.

Beater attachment has no suction.


Your hose issue is isolated from the garage. You have a switch problem in the handle of the hose.
If the hose has a swivel handle your problem will lie in the switch itself or the contact rings within the lower portion of the handle itself. If this is a light gray hose with swivel handle several years old switches were an issue from time to time . The problem can normally be fixed by replacing the internal wiring harness in the hose.

No suction from upholstery attachment


http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf

Problem: Low suction
Problem: Clean solution won’t
dispense
Problem: Brushes/brush indicator
won’t rotate during floor cleaning
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Not firmly plugged in
• Plug unit in firmly
• No voltage In wall plug
• Check fuse or breaker
• Blown fuse/tripped breaker
• Replace fuse/reset breaker
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Recovery tank full/automatic
shut off engaged
• Remove and empty recovery tank
• Blockage In tool on end of hose
• Remove tool and clear blockage
• Recovery tank lid not on
correctly
• Make sure lid is on securely
• Recovery tank front panel not
replaced after stair or upholstery
cleaning
• Replace recovery tank front panel
(page 14)

Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system (“prime the pump”) so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
these steps:
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
cleaner ON.
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning.

GOODLUCK!!!!

DeWalk DC500 wet/dry vaccum doesn't work


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?

Plugged hose on Hoover Windtunnel


you will have to remove the bottom cowling under the vaccum cleaner there are 4 phillips head screws one at each corner when you turn over the vaccum cleaner, take this off and remember how it goes back on. in the area where the hos is there will probably be a clog at that point. remove this and pull hose off and make sure it is not clogged farther up the hose, reinstall and check

Brush does not turn on my vaccum


When you attach the hose to the wands, there is a connection made between the hose electrical receptacle and the cord from the powerhead. On the Kenmore, it is common for the receptacle on the hose to break away from it's seat and slide back into the handle. When this happens, the receptacle is not positioned far enough forward to make the plug-in connection. Look at the end of the hose and check the receptacle and see if it is sitting flush with the plastic opening that it sits in. If it is pushed back, that's your problem. Also check the re-set breaker on the powerhead. If you got something caught in the brush roll, the breaker will have kicked out to protect the motor.

Central vaccum


If the outlets work on the 2nd story ok, and not on the 1st floor, then you may have a wire that has come loose. There maybe a junction that split off between the 1st and 2nd floor. I assume you are talking about the suction and not the brush roll on the power head. If it is the power head not working, then check where the 2 prongs go into the outlets to make sure that the plug receptacle haven't gotten pushed in from the holder.
