Off/on switch does not work

I vacuumed one room and turned off vacuum.  Went to another room turned it on and nothing happened.  I waited 2 days and still when I turn on vacuum, nothing happens.  Any ideas would be helpful.  I checked belt and it is O.K.

Re: off/on switch does not work

The on/off switch in Hoover Windtunnel upright vacuum cleaners is operated by a lever in the handle assembly.  remove the two screws on the back ovf the vacuum and see if the lever has bypassed the switch assembly.  if so, re-assembly should fix the problem.  It is also possible that the switch activating lever has broken.  If so, replace the activating lever.

My vacuum worked just fine... i went in another room to use it and now it won't turn on no matter what outlet i use!

If it works in the other room's outlets, I would think that it might be tripping the circuit breaker for the room it isn't working in. Check your circuit breakers.

We have this vacuum and its not sucking enough. its sucking at about 50% capacity. we vacuumed an entire room and when we opened it up, there was nothing in the dirt holder. we have cleaned all filters and...

A common probem with vacuums that are equipped with an attachment switch is the switch isn't all the way in it's normal position. Our Bissell has a yellow dial that switches from normal to attachment mode and will only work at 1/2 its power if the switch isn't in vacuum mode.

Pronto doesn't work at all

Hi there SmartAlec from here. I assume you are not from Australia as that machine is called an ergo rapido here. That machine here suffers from very dodgy switches but little else goes wrong. I would suggest it is a repair for a professional to replace the switch. If it is under 2 years old it should be a warranty repair. Hope this helps.
Happy Vacuuming! :)

Vacuum only turns on in reclined position/pull out hose broken

Per the Dyson Web Site I found the solution. Although I cleared all the filters/possible clogs the vacuum had over heated disabling the pull out attachment and power button except when in the reclined position. After clearing the filter and waiting an hour for it to cool it was back to working like normal.

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.

Hoover wind tunnel

Did you check down by the brush roll for a clog in the dirt inlet. And is the brush roll turning freely, if it is being lugged down, it can cause the motor to overheat and the thermo protector will caught it off, until the motor cools down. But if both are ok, then maybe the motor protector needs to replaced, it is prematurely tripping.
