You need to understand what you are asking. One is the Maximum Draw (20 Amp) which is quite Stout in the power usage. There are better "EFFICIENCY" Vacuum cleaners that use less power. What you should be asking yourself is what is a GOOD VACUUM compared to a GREAT VACUUM and what Vacuum will do its job and last. Then you have to take into consideration that if you do not take care of your Equipment, you can burn it up prematurely. SILVER KING/RAINBOW/KERBY are High end vacuum that you are going to pay well over $1000 for. You can go to Walmart and buy their High End vacuum for less than $200.... Your Call

Power is not coming on

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced.

I want to know the suction power of henry is it the most powerful

Because of the traditional means of suction, air watts can only be justified in vacuums like Dyson that have 100% suction all the time. Therefore even the most expensive bagged upright (or bagless that doesn't have Dyson technology) will lose suction the moment a new bag is put in. Don't believe that air watts are true unless you have a Dyson.

The vacuum won't turn on

it could possibly be a short in the power cord. try replacing the power cord. if that doesn't fix it, it would probably be cheaper to buy a new vacuum cleaner.
