Start with this. Unplug the vac to shut off, then disconnect the low voltage wiring at the vac.Plug the vac back in. If the vac still runs you have an internal short on the relay or wiring inside the vac.
If the vac stops then the vac and final wiring is OK and the problem is in the wiring in the house.
Have you removed any inlets for painting or had any renos done or pictures hung. If so undo what you did last. If inlets were disturbed remove them and look for low voltage vac wires touching metal backing plates in the wall or touching the inlet mounting screws.
If you have done a reno or hung pictures you may have pierece the wire for the vac creating a low voltage short which will keep the vac running until removed. I have seen this happen with freshly installed 1/4 round molding along a baseboard

If the power went out while using it then you have a major motor problem. It could be burnt out.

How do I change the belt on a Shark Rocket


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Always unplug your vacuum from the power source before performing this. Use a Philips or a crewdriver - to open the screws keeping the roller covered. The screws are located in different places depending on models but they are easy to spot. Hold the roller ending and remove it from the holder. Hold the roller at the end furthest from the belt. When that end is free, repeat with the other roller endings. Slide the belt off the roller and, after that, off the motor shaft. Clean throughout the brush roll with a hairbrush, a pair of scissors and a pair of pliers (if necessary) to get rid of all hair and debris. Be careful or you could cut the bristles. Slide the belt over the motor shaft then over the roller and finally over the seat. Hold the roller at the two ends and separate it from the motor shaft making sure that the tension at the two ends is equal. Partially attach the end furthest from the belt then tightly pull the other end and partially attach it to its holder. When the two ends are in place, push them in. Reassemble the brush roll cover and protect it, using the screws you've just removed. Place the vacuum machine upright, connect it to the electricity outlet and check the roller.

Have you tried a different area of the house? I would call an electrician and have your outlets checked.

I have only used this mop a few times because everytime I go to plug it in the outlet, there are sparks. I have tried three different outlets. Is there a recall on this??

No, but hopefully you are in warranty...1 year...

Gen 3 model Kirby vaccuum won't start


Checked your bag if they are full, if bagless check your filter. If still not working maybe the protected temperature fuse blown out. You need to open it and replace the protected blown fuse.

Brand new Bissell Healthy Home 5770H Upright will not turn on.


If the brush attachment isn't locked into place than the vaccuum will not work make sure it is attached properly.

No power coming into machine


Hi All
Up Date on shark no steam no light.
The fuse that controls the steam is a thermal fuse, 192c ,10 am 250 volt.
Now that may sound strange to some one who dose not know fuses, but Radio Shack carries them and there $3 bucks!
If there is a handy person you know, they should have no problem replacing the fuse. I just fixed ours in about 30 min. but I work on electronics. If the Shark gets to hot this fuse will blow to prevent overload or fire so don't put bigger fuse in it!!
FYI you have to take All the screw out and open up the unit fuse is burried look for yellow clear film (thats the color mine was), the film is wrapping the fuse. Good luck

Vaccuum Burnout?


Will the brush turn by hand ok, or is it froze up, some models have a reset on the back near the bottom, there could be a fuse, take the bag door off, near the top of the vacuum, there maty be a cover to remove, if there is a fuse it would be in there. The motor protector may be bad as well as the motor. Your vacuum will just have to checked over to find the problem.
