Question about Vacuums
My vax rapide does not turn on
The only easy answer would be a bad connection at the plugin receptacle, a bad receptacle, open circuit-breaker or fuse at your electrical panel. Assuming these have all been verified as working
(check by plugging it into a different circuit in the house. If it works then the problem is at the original receptacle and not the vacuum). Then the electrical wiring and components of the vacuum must be checked. This is normally done by a qualified serviceman.
There is no rest button that I am aware of. Make sure the switch is pressed on firmly. The most common problem is a faulty switch, however there are several other possibilities. The vacuum has a simple overload switch that turns off when it is overloaded. Once it has cooled, it will close in again allowing it to work again. This could fail open but it is rare unless it has operated many times previous to not starting now. A more common problem is a broken or open wire. This usually happens at connections and may be burnt open because of a loose connection. Sometimes the start switch on the motor fails or the motor itself fails. Unless you are knowledgeable with working on electrical circuitry the repair should be done by a qualified repairman.
