Try taking it apart and spraying it with WD40
Here is how the switch assembly should go together:

Power head motor dose not operate when switch on handle of vaccum


Its possible if the head is belt driven that it has clogged with fibres or could even have snapped. Unplug the vac, turn it over and have a look, you may need to remove a cover plate first.

My Miele S4780 Vaccum has no power at either the switch on the unit or the hand held nozzle. I checked the cord and it seems to be OK. What could the problem be?


Could be the cord reel. Try laying the vac on it's side and turning it on. Sometimes you may even need to gently bounce it. If this works, you have a bad cord reel. Check my other answers for how to fix this.

Orek founder vaccum has no power


Start with opening up the handle on your vacuum. It may be as simple as one of the wires has come off of the switch. I see this every couple of months on the Oreck's that I work on. If that is not the problem, it could be your switch or the power cord, or worse case scenario, the motor. If you have access to a multimeter, you can check the continuity of each of those items and track down your problem that way. Good luck!

Won't turn off


It's highly probable that the Dyson power switch has gone bad.
You can buy dyson dc14 switch here.
The switch is located right behind the front covering of the neck or handle when you remove the telescopic wand. Please make sure that the vacuum is unplugged before you start this project.

Vacuum cleaner does not work


most upright vaccums have a reset button at lower rear area of the vaccum. operates similar to gfi plug reset, push button back in usually with small screwdriver. is your debris bag to full? power brush jammed with debris? hose plugged? this will cause motor to over heat and in turn kick out reset button. always unplug power cord before putting fingers in areas where moving parts are!!

The system was turned on manually to vaccum out the car and now the only way to turn it off is to unplug it (i.e. pressing the switch on the vaccum canister to auto from manual does not turn it off). Bad...


It is possible that it is a bad switch/circuit board on the unit. If your unit is less than 7 years old that should also be covered by warranty (manufacturer) however an in home service, should you require someone to come to the house will not be covered.

My vaccum cleaner will not turn on...i checked the outlet and it works but no power to my vaccum


Some vacuums have a resettable circuit breaker in case of overload or switch in case of blockage. Both are usually a pushbutton type thing (like on a powerstrip). Find it, reset by pushing, and run the motor. Check for obstructions and for anything that could be preventing the brush-roller from turning. If the breaker or switch trips again there is a problem that needs to be resolved.
The manual might be helpful.

Beater brush


Note: The brush will not rotate when the machine is locked in the upright position, because an internal micro-switch turns the brush motor off.

- Make sure brush switch on the handle is on.

- Check the belt through the clear brush cover. If this appears damaged or broken, take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center to have it replaced. If the belt is intact, please continue checking the following:
- Ensure both power switches are turned on when you check for brush rotation.
- Unplug the power cord and remove the handle completely. Slide handle back into the lower section of handle, ensuring the screw is in tight. If the handle is not aligned properly, this will affect the power of the brush motor.
- Look for debris wrapped around the brush (i.e. string, hair, fibers, etc.). When the machine is unplugged, cut away any visible hair, fibers or debris from the brush roller. This brush is NOT removable from the machine.
- If something has become lodged in the foot and the brush shuts off, turn off the vacuum and unplug this from the outlet. You can now remove the obstruction. The brush will automatically reset when the vacuum is plugged in and turned back on.

Rotating brushes will not turn


If belts are ok then possibly needs new front brush motor replaced.
