Leave it unplugged for a half hour then try it. But it sounds like it may have received a power surge or several. This could have fried the motor. The motor may have to be replaced.

Try it in a different part of the house. If it works then you have too many things running in the kitchen. If it still blows a breaker then it is shorted out and needs to be returned.

I was vacuuming with bissell 3750-T and I shut it off and went to turn it back on and will not start or do anything, what is wrong?


If you can't smell burning then it's probably a broken power switch or the vacuum got too hot and the thermal overload protection has tripped. Try leaving it off for 15-30 minutes and try it again. The thermal overload will reset itself during this time and it should work again.

In the meantime, make sure you have power to the vacuum, check for any blockages and check that the rollers in the cleaning head will turn by hand. Also, give your filters a clean. Any of these could cause the vacuum to overheat.

If you've already done this and/or power doesn't return after 15-30 minutes, I would start by checking the switch.

A couple of questions . . .

1. Does the power switch feel "normal" - basically does it have a positive feel when you switch on and off?
2. How long had you been using the vacuum before it stopped working?

Went to turn it on after not using for several weeks and it states not ready to brew like usual but after about four minutes it just turns off. Wont let us brew a cup or access the menu even to choose size...


You have posted the fault in the wrong column with no instruction of the make/model.
Assuming it to be new , Is it passed the warranty period before we take a look ,?
Just lave it on for sometime and see if there is any change. perhaps the controller is thinking different with some errors , so lets try that it will stabilise with the stteady power inside.
check this out and comment.

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.

Eureka altima stopped power mid vaccuming, have changed outlits


make sure all your filters are clean,try to turn the brush roller by hand a few times if it turns real freely then the belt is broke.if it is reall hard to turn then you have something wrapped around the ends of the roller where the bearings are.your motor guard might be keeping it from running because it got too hot take the brush roller out and the belt let it cool down for 20 minutes then try it without the roller and belt.you should be able to take the ends of the roller off by just pulling out on them so you can remove what ever is in there

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.

I was vacuuming then all of a sudden the vac turned off and wont go back on. i thought the bag might be full so i emptied it and still it wont go back on


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

There maybe several things wrong with the vacuum at this point. When a vacuum cleaner doesn't turn on, it usually is 1 of several things. It's either a reset button on the machine, the cord, the plug, the switch or the motor. One of these things have gone bad in your machine.

If you'd be so kind as to let me know your make and model, I can help you diagnosis the vacuum to find out what went bad.

Please email me your make and model to chris.jones@govacuum.com

The cord may be bad, you may want to have it replaced, or have it checked before you get a bad shock.
