If it comes back on after while it is probably overheating due to clogged filters or an obstruction. If it's intermittent it may be an electrical short somewhere.

SOURCE: Kenmore 33721 does not start

Same thing happened to me. After taking the cover off I noticed a wiring diagram on the inside cover. There is a fuse between the on/off button and the motor, sure enough the fuse had blown. There is no mention of a fuse in the manual! The vacuum works great again.

Vacuum works but won't shut off


Switch is broken in the "ON" position. Just plug it into a power strip outlet and use the switch on the power strip outlet to turn it on and off.

It works on battery?
Because if it works fine with the power cord, you can turn it off removing from outlet..
NOT ILLOGICAL: I've been using a vacuum this way sice about 10 years.

Our cv450 wont turn on when plugging into the wall or using the rocker switch on the unit, there is power to the outlet, the unit is 12 years old,any suggestions to further diagnose?


Check the filter. If it's dirty, the motor will overheat, resulting in the machine shutting off.
Rinse thoroughly in warm water, and allow to air dry thoroughly before reinstalling. I recommend having two filters so you have one to use while the other is drying.
Other problems are possible, but generally entail taking the vacuum to a repair shop for diagnosis and repair.

It electrically stopped- no blockage or horrid noise just won't work! About 4 years old - and yes I have changed the fuse. Any answers?


have an electrician check the switch on the vac. probably went bad. also look for broken wires or connections.

you have tried a different outlet, right? also inspect power cord for any damage.

Hoover only two years old and it stopped working!
Posted by baby_nurse on May 02, 2008
My Hoover self propelled wind tunnel was working great until a couple of days ago when it started shutting on and off while vacuuming. I thought it was the outlet but when I plugged it into two different outlets it did the same thing. Then finally yesterday it just stopped working it won't even turn on when plugged in. I thought it was the switch but it is not. Is it the motor? Has the motor burned out? Do I need to buy a new one? Help!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

I think you are right, if it is not the switch then it would be the motor. Does it smell bad like a burning smell? If so it is definitely the motor and then @ that point you may want to get an estimate for motor replacement, and keep in mind of what you spent on the vacuum versus what the cost of repair might be. My own rule of thumb is if it cost more than ½ of the price I paid for it then you have to decide – do I want to pay the repaired cost for the vacuum or do I want to purchase a new one. Just a suggestion... You may want to check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hayden Premier Motor Pulses


there are several possibilities here, its possible the low voltage relay is bad, possible that the carbons on your motor are worn, or may even be a thermal sensor in your unit shutting it down, ive even seen improper assembly of motor which cause wires to be pinched and have shorts in them from the manufacture, course always check your power cord to the wall and test your outlet with some other appliance.as you can see several possiblities, most of which unless your knowledgeable in electricity i wound not atttempt on my own. highley reccomend taking to a vacuum cleaner shop to have checked out at least, they may even be able to sell you the part to fix it yourself

Low voltage wiring


Probably just didn't wire the l/v side of the relay properly. Or forgot to plug the leads from the outlets back in to the vac after you got it all hooked back up. Folks do it to me all the time and then make like it's my fault! Ha ha.

Jump the l/v contacts inside the CV. If it goes: trace outward toward the outlets to see if something shook loose while it was apart. If you can't jump the l/v with a plier/screwdriver at the CV or even inside it, you have an issue on the board (either how you've connected to it or it's defective itself). The prob is that there's dozens of diff board configs, plus the relays and transformers weren't together on the same board in the old days. If you've got one of these models with a massive transformer separate from the relays get out the test leads and make sure you've got adequate voltage coming out of her to power the relay coil.
