Question about Dirt Devil M1100009 Reaction Soft Touch Cyclonic Upright Vacuum Cleaner Vacuum

1 Answer

Vacuum turned off on its own and now won't turn on

Was vacuuming, as you will, and the vacuum just turned itself off and won't turn back on. I checked the cord connections, the electrical plugs, the filters, clogs, etc -- nothing. Any ideas?

    Oh, you know -- it's a borrowed vacuum. I was able to find the manual, and I suspect the thermal protector went off... I think it's just oversensitive. Thanks for the quick response!

Ken more progressive upright vacuum


Stephen,
When you say that it will not turn, do you mean that it will not turn when the vacuum is turned on or just not turn when you try to turn it by hand. Did you make sure that the belt was in good condition before you put it back together? If you cannot turn the brush by hand with the vacuum off, then you might have an issue with the brush itself as well.

Hoover spirit 900 canister wont turn on?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

Trying to change the belt


things you will need Vacuum belt
  • Screwdriver
  1. Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.

  2. Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.

  3. Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.

  4. Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.

  5. Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.

  6. Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working

Vacuum turns itself off or won't turn on


Sounds like a bad on/off switch or a loose connection somewhere in the vacuum. If you can remove the switch, you can see if any connections are loose. The switch itself can be checked if taken out of the circuit and tested with a meter or a continuity light.

Otherwise, you might want to consider a repair shop.

Hoover vacuum turned off and won’t go back on

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
Not knowing the model number – or if it is a canister or upright --- you may have a defective switch and would need to replace it – check with you local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or call the Hoover Co for further assistance
