Dyson upright vacuum with kinked cord kept stopping. There was a loud bang and smoke and the vacuum stopped. Has the motor blown up, or can it be repaired?

This happens a lot the supply cable bending or damaged shorts out causing smoke and a bang if fitted with or backed up with a high amperage fuse .
check length of supply cable if you find damage/ burning smell,
either replace cable, or you could fit a inline rubber socket and plug by cutting out damaged part of cable and fitting female part of plug first into supply cable 1. then on the vacuum side of cable fit the male part of plug 2 . supply 1. -----o o----------2.--- vac
using insulation tape if you like you can tape plug and socket together to stop it pulling apart, normally cable damage will not damage the vacuum cleaner. and fit the correct fuse rating for the machine 1000 watts at 240v divide 240 into 1000 =4.166 amps
so with a 1000 w load you do not need a 13 a fuse fitted 6 amp fuse should be ok. or go online and see what is recommended re fuse size for appliance ,

No power, used yesterday pm no problem now ive changed fuse but nothing.

Might seem like a silly question, but the fuse you replaced it with isn't a blown one. Try it and the one you took out in another item. If they work in that then it isn't a fuse problem. Also try in another power outlet on another circuit (upstairs and downstairs) just to rule out a faulty power supply. If the supply is good and the fuses fine then it will be the vacuum cleaner itself. Either a broken wire or an internal fault.

Does not work

1) TEST THE outlet receptacle wall, and reset the c.breaker
2) test the power cord for open or break wires and replace.
3) test the c.breaker or blown fuse inside
4) Test the drive belt for break
5) Test the motor for faulty. see the diagram attached and proceed with logic sense. God bless you

Don't know or think so

I believe from my experience, you have a circuit breaker

It will reset by it'self

Our carbon monoxide dectector model CO910, bought several years ago (10+) beeps every 30 seconds with an "err" message. All windows where it is are open. No one is feeling ill. Is it just an error on...

CO2 and Smoke detectors have an internal sensor that has a design life of 5 years from the date of manufacture. After the 5 years you start getting false alarms due to the sensor itself exceeding its average life span. On the combination CO2 and Smoke deterctors you will often see a manufacture date or a replace by date inside the cover on the main board.
On AC powered models such as this one you will just get the error when the sensor fails. If you got the full 5+ years out of your CO2 sensor then you should be happy that it served a full life expectancy.

Some Wiki data on CO2 detectors:

This paragragh appears under installation

The gas sensors in CO alarms have a limited and indeterminable life span, typically two to five years. The test button on a CO alarm only tests the battery and circuitry not the sensor. CO alarms should be tested with an external source of calibrated test gas, as recommended by the latest version of NFPA 720. Alarms over five years old should be replaced but they should be checked on installation and at least annually during the manufacturers warranty period.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Henry keeps shorting out? Changed fuse and bag but still wont work?

Most common cause of this problem is a damaged flex. Damage may not be visible externally, but after a lot of bending and pulling the wire inside the flex can break. This usually happens close to the plug, so examine it very carefully for signs of damage (if there has actually been a short circuit, there may be a tiny hole blown in the outer insulation). Unfortunately there is no easy way to locate an internal break without special testing equipment. You can try just cutting off the old plug with about 6 inches of flex, and then fitting a new plug - if that doesn't work you may need professional help. Good luck!

When i press the foot switch the machine does not switch on. Is there an internal fuse?

Don't think there is an internal fuse.
If you have replaced or tested the plug top fuse & that's ok, it may be that the foot switch needs replacing or a wire has come loose from it.

Wont turn on

Most common fault I find when repairing vacuum cleaners is that the cable is broken, however the motors do have a one shot thermal fuse on them, check the cable for continuity and breaks pay attention to where the cable goes into the vacuum body this is the most common point.
