Simplicity symmetry vacuum stopped working


There is a reset button on the back that trips if the vacuum gets hot.

I turn it on and nothing happens,


I would double-check the seating of the bag. Some machines have a lockout switch that keeps you from running the vac with a bag incorrectly installed (which would then suck dirt into the motor).

Problem with fuse


Depending on your model, most machines are equipped with a thermal sensor not a fuse. Machine will over heat if clogged. Check for clogs.

I have a simplicity spb250 and all of a sudden it shut off and does not turn on. Any thoughts?


Several possibilities for this situation. It's possible that there's a break in the power cord somewhere, not necessarily a noticeable break, but a break none-the-less. It's possible that there's a reset on the motor to protect it from overheating. The switch may be broken inside. I'd say there's a good possibility that you're going to need to bring it to a good sweeper repair shop in your neighborhood.

I have a Hoover Mach 2.7 Windtunnel that shut off during use and wouldn't turn back on. Was doing kitchen floor and running fine. Though a breaker tripped but didn't...what could it be?


Hello,

It sounds like your thermal reset switch inside of your Hoover may have gone bad. When a vacuum cleaner doesn't turn on it, it's either caused by one of four things.
  1. Electrical Short in your Cord.
  2. Plug has gone bad.
  3. Motor of your vacuum is faulty
  4. The On / Off Switch has gone bad, and/or your Thermal Reset Switch has gone bad
Since this happened while you were vacuuming, I would guess that this is either your electrical plug that's shorted out, or that your thermal reset switch has shorted out. Your model Hoover was built with a protection system that is supposed to automatically shut down your machine if it senses any excessive heat. This mechanism is controlled by a Thermal reset switch which is located in motor compartment. This part is notoroious for failing, even when there's no overheating that's occured.

Before you disassemble the entire machine to check this part though, I would try testing the On / Off switch in your machine, as well as testing the electrical cord, which will also let you know if your plug has gone bad.

Here's a link to a solution I've done here on FixYa explaining how to check the On / Off switch;

While you have this apart, you can use the same electrical tester to test your cord. Simply put one end of the test into the terminal from the switch, and the other end of the test on one of the metal prongs that plugs into the wall. See if you have continuity here, if not, switch to the other prong of the plug and see if this helps.

If not continuity, this means your plug, or your cord has failed. If you do have continuity, this means that it's either the On / off switch, or the Thermal Reset Switch that's gone bad.

Here's a link to the solution that I've done on here showing how to replace the Thermal Reset Switch on your vacuum cleaner:

I have a Simplicity model 6970 upright vacuum. It picks up great and there is no smell but it will over heat in about ten minutes and shut down. There are no clogs. Once cool, I hit the thermal reset on...


It could be electrical on the inside of the vaccum or your belt is the wrong size therefore making it over heat. Hope this helps?!

Simplicity 7 Series Vacuum. Suddenly stopped.


There is a thermal reset button on your vaccum. It is on the rear of the unit, just below the attachments and next to the sticker with the serial numer etc on it. The vacuum is designed to turn itself of if too much heat gets built up to prevent it from "burning up."
