There is a short in your vacuum that is cause your circuit to trip. It is more then likely a ground wire that has come loose in the plug that attaches to the motor of the vacuum

How do you get to the fuse in the dc28?


The 3-pin mains plug will have a plastic fuse holder which can be levered open with a small screwdriver. Look on the pin side of the plug. There will also be small writing on the plug to tell you which size of fuse is fitted to the plug. Replace with the same size of fuse. It is important to note that the fuse in the mains plug is only likely to blow if there is an electrical issue inside the machine, so replacing the fuse may just result in the fuse blowing again. If this happens then the vacuum needs proper checking and repair. DO NOT try using a bigger fuse, as you may cause more damage to the vacuum, or cable overheating or risk of electric shock.

Rug shampoo machine keeps blowing breakers now will not power on


It sounds like you have a dead short. Check the wire, it quite often will break at the point that it comes out of the machine. The power is going straight back to the panel before it gets to the motor and that flips the breaker. It probably needs the whole wire replaced. If you can take it apart, check with an ohm meter to see which wire it broken. Do not have it plugged in while doing this.

My Miele Hepa 5281 stopped working for no apparent reason. No burning smell etc. I've replaced the fuse on the plug but it's still not working. Any suggestions on what could be wrong a


Could be a break in the mains lead. Usually where it enters the machine and gets stressed. Some motors have a thermal cut out or thermal fuse fitted to them. If the motor overheats it breaks the circuit. Some of them reset when they cool down, some are a one shot device, when it blows it has to be replaced. Could also be faulty brushes on the motor not making proper contact because the are sticking or worn.

When i plug in my oreck steam it mop, it keeps blowing the fuse


Make sure no other appliance is running at the same time. Some other appliance on the same house line is causing the fuse to overload. Example: If we have the space heater on in the bedroom and my wife tries to use her hair dryer then the fuse blows as they are both on the same circuit.

I have 2 cotton candy machines. One says 25 amps and the other says 30 amps on it. I would like to take either one of them to parties at people's houses, but am afraid of blowing fuses. Is there...


Hi marieu2005..
The only way to avoid blowing breaker or fuses is to ask the person do they have an available 25/30 amp socket, and you need it to fit the plug you have on your machine.

As soon as I plug Shark steam cleaner (S505UK) in to mains it trips all the power in the house out. I am using a 15amp extension lead. Are there any user servicable parts or repair centers in the UK?


When the main trip cuts out it indicates current leaking to earth within the guilty machine. In machines that combine electricity and water in close proximity (like yours) this problem is almost always caused by some electrical component getting wet.  I'm not familiar with this particular machine, but doubt if there are any user-serviceable parts. If there are any covers you can remove easily, you might try just exposing the innards and make sure they are dry.  If you can get inside, a gentle blow with a hair dryer might help.
As for repair centres, what part of the UK are you in? The place where I work is in south Oxfordshire, and we're always happy to have a look at problems like this... but no guarantee at this time, of course!

Hoover EmPower 4600 keeps blowing circuit breaker. The number of outlets in the house that will allow me to run the vacuum is dropping quickly. It is a 4 year old house and all the circuit breakers are 20...


take it to a friends house and plug it in if it does the same thing then the problem is in the vacuum cleaner.check your cord and see if there are anny cuts in it.you can open the breaker box then plug in the vacuum and watch the breaker box.you might see a spark and narrow down the problem.
