SOURCE: vacuum cleaner won't go - missing a step

In between the filters there's an access panel that can be removed - there may be a blockage there. You should also check your hose for a blockage.

Otherwise you may need to take it to your local Electrolux Service Center. There may be a problem with the pressure board. The machines have a 2 year warranty, not sure what it'd be in your neck of the woods.

SOURCE: fuse auto shut off

Find the current rating for the vacuum cleaner motor (on a plate somewhere on the machine). Is it somewhat less than the breaker rating in the panel? If so, then either the motor is overloading the breaker due to bad bearings or a shorted winding in the motor or the breaker is failing. Check the current draw of the running motor with a clamp-on ammeter (a friend with one or an electrician). It should be close to the rating on the plate. If in excess, then the motor needs to be repaired or replaced. The motor normally works harder when it is pulling full vacuum--it speeds up if the air flow is plugged.

Try wiping off the cliff sensors, and cleaning the drive wheels. Download the user guide, if you don't already have one.

SOURCE: I use an air compressor to blow out the hepa

compressed air should get out enough dust. when you do this you should wear a mask so you do not breathe the dust.

I have a cordless vacuum cleaner that is intermittently turning off and on continuously even though the trigger is pressed down. What could be the problem?

Could be a faulty switch, internal wiring or electronics. Might also be the motor is running hot due to insufficient cooling air or a fault and a protection device is cutting the power to protect it.

Only a deeper investigation will discover the cause.

I have a Karcher WD 3.500 P wet dry vac. First ? when vacuuming dirt off floor do I always need the bag or is the cartridge primary filter ok.. I clean it regularly. Second problem. I went to turn on...

The bag is part of the filtration design of the machine. Using it will not only make your primary cartridge filter last longer, but make the vacuum suck more efficiently & make your vacuum as a whole last longer.
You can bypass the switch to check if the motor is okay.
More often than not an intermittent operation of a machine is actually due to a break in the power lead. This is not always apparent externally though. You may need to get this checked by a qualified / certified person.

Trigger switch cuts off during use

make sure the filter is washed thoroughly. I have/had the same problem and washing the filter helps a lot - it cuts off if overheating....and avoid picking up really fine dust like after drilling picture hook holes...

I turn my dyson on and it runs for 5 min then turns off

The motor may not be getting air flow past it due to clogging or dust build-up. It is probably shutting off because of a thermal overload switch. Good luck!

Kirby will not turn on

For the kirby to run all the switches need to be in contact. First check the brush head and make sure its attached properly, then check the plastic piece on the bottom of the bag (called the mini emptor) it should be all the way against the body of the vacuum. if all that is good check the cord where it runs up the handle and connects to the swiveling strain relief at the top... usually those cords go bad right there. If the cord is good, you probably need a new switch but before you spend the money on that expensive genuine kirby switch check the motor carbon brushes and the commotator on the armature where the brushes make contact.

I have the Bissell power force bagless upright vacume and I took the filters off and cleaned them and don't know where the round filter goes to be able to continue vacuming.

I had shortly after posting the question requesting help and then found the product manual.
Thank you very much though.

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out

There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.
