Hi! I work at repairing Sebos, so can certainly help.  Most probably the cable is damaged, and the two most likely places for that to happen are where it enters the plug and where it enters the rewind mechanism. Before you even think about dismantling the machine to get at that end of things, though, you need to be 100% sure that power is reaching the machine.
I know you've tried a different socket, and that you've changed the fuse (by which I assume you mean the plug-top fuse, and therefore that you're probably in the UK like I am). Good first steps. Checking the integrity of the wire in the cable is a different matter, though. There are inexpensive devices you can buy to check for voltage through normal insulation, but I don't know how deep in to this you want to get...  you've got to be pretty keen (and competent) to think of changing the cable yourself. 
If you'd like to post a response, indicating how far you want to go yourself, I can help you get in to the machine if necessary.

    I have never changed a cable before, but would be more than willing to do so.

Vacuum won't turn on when plugged in and switch is turned on


The easy answer to this problem is you need a new cord. Any fit all 20 to 35 foot two wire cord will work. However, you will need to take disassemble the almost the entire vacuum to test the current cord to see if it is bad. There are a lot of pieces to take off to get to the inside of the vacuum where the cord enters from the back. You could also have a bad motor.

Hoover Steam Cleaner F6024-900 does not turn on when plugged in to working outlet.


You may have something simple like a bad plug end piece on the power cord. try it in another socket if it still doesnt work you may have to replace the plug.
The most stressed point on a vacume is on the power plug and cord because it gets pulled and twisted a lot.

After I run my vacuum for a couple of minutes it shuts off. If I unplug the vacuum and plug it into a different outlet most of the time it will start working again.


I would say check inside the plug and make sure the connections are tight. If the vacume runs fine on the other socket outlet then it will bw a faulty socket which cuts your hoover out. Can buy a new socket frount from diy stores for about 2-3 pounds. If the hoover also cuts out on the other sochet it will be a temperature cut out device on your hoover. If this is the case empty the bag and give it a good clean and get rid of any accumalation of dust/dirt

Meile s251i won't turn on


Hi If the power head isn't working it may be clogged. Try taking it apart to see if threads and general dirt has got in at the sides. Also without the power head if the Miele still isn't working then its a possibility that the on switch wiring is either loose or check the plug at the end of the power cord.

Vacuum will not turn on


Kenmore Model 116, behind the Vacuum cleaner there is a Motor Reset switch which you need to press.
1. Make sure the Vacuum Cleaner is unplugged.
2. Press the reset button gently in with a pen.
3. Plug back the Vacuum cleaner and it should work.

Give the prongs a wiggle and see if there is any play in them.Might just be a plug end.

Electrolux ambassdor will not run after pluggen in


Greeting from GoVacuum,

On all Electrolux canister vacuum cleaners, there is a kill switch, that will not allow the machine to turn on without a bag in it. Sometimes when replacing the bag, the bag is placed in a position where the switch is not being activated.

When you open the bag housing, it should look like this;

You'll notice in the bottom right corner of the bag housing, the kill switch to the vacuum cleaner.

Try plugging the vacuum cleaner in, and while you are pressing this kill switch down, turn on the vacuum cleaner. Does the vacuum cleaner turn on/off when you push/release the kill switch? If it does, simply just get a new bag, and make sure that the new bag is covering the kill switch, and close the door of the vacuum cleaner.

If it still doesn't start, let me know and I'll try to help you diagnosis the machine differently. I'd say that 6 out of 10 times, this kill switch is the problem.

I hope this helps you. Please email me with any questions, or if this fix doesn't make your vacuum work. I really enjoy sharing my passion, and expertise in repairing vacuum cleaners.
