Question about Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum with Canister Bagged

Why won't my Hoover Platinum turn on?

A string was caught in the roller brush. I removed it, but the vacuum still won't turn on. The light turns red and stays illuminated.

    Also, the problem started when I was vacuuming loose sand in my garage. The vacuum stopped running and the change bag indicator came on. So I changed the bag, and it still won't do anything.

Check and see if there is a reset button for the vacuum head this trips sometime to protect the head motor. Also if the roller heads bind they can snap the belt if it is belt driven. If it is direct drive then I would look for the trip or reset button.

The room smells after vacuuming, even after changing the bag. What can I do to stop the smell.

There may be a build up of dust in the machine. Turn it over and remove the screws that hold the beater bar cover and see if there is any white like powder caked on the inlet area.

Does the platinum bagged upright have reset button

I've never heard of a reset on a vacuum, for what reason would they have it, overheating of the motor? Or drawing too much current and it has an onboard circuit breaker? What is it doing exactly? What made you ask this question?

How do access the main motor of the linx BH50010

Hello m4fnli! You can disconnect the power nozzle by pressing the nozzle release button on the back of the nozzle and pulling the nozzle from the body of the cleaner. The handle can be disconnected by removing the handle screw. Assembly beyond this point is not recommended. Check that your brush roll end caps are not worn. If they are, this can cause the vacuum to be noisy. If you think there is something in your motor we recommend you take your cleaner in to an authorized service center for repair. I have included a link where you may go to locate the nearest service center to your zip code. Hope this helps!

My electrolux Nimbles roller is not working.

A common problem with roller/beaters is hair caught in the bearings on the ends of the roller. The roller is removable and requires regular cleaning or the belt will be destroyed.
