Question about Vacuums
It worked perfectly last time I used it, no issues at all. It has never given me a moment of trouble, plugged it in tonight and it seems to not have any power at all to the motor. I've tried different outlets, so that's nt the problem. Does it have a reset button?

If it won't work without a ground wire, but still works with one, then you must have a ground/earth connection to make it work - it sounds like there is a safety device that needs an earth to release, you could almost certainly bypass this relatively easily, but it will be there for a good reason and that would be dangerous. Bearing this in mind, regardless of which 2/3 prong adaptors you use, without an earth connection it will not function without risk probably of electric shock from the case or damage to the vacuum, else the safety device would not be there. Get an electrician to your home, and make him install grounded sockets where necessary (should be all, but at least get a couple). Ungrounded/unearthed domestic power sockets at all domestic AC voltages are lethal eventually, to man or machines. A lot of devices don't need an earth, but especially something with a big motor or a metal case usually does. At least ask a local electrician what he thinks. If you want to do it yourself, an Earth circuit in your home is not too hard to achieve if you have basic wiring skills (and access to the ground floor), but most insurance would dislike the idea - if you want to - post again and I may talk you through it. Hope this helps :) Please be careful :(

the motor could be ceased up. do you hear a buzzing noise? if you dont hear a buzzing noise, turn it on for about 1 minute, unless it starts smelling hot or starts smoking. if nothing happens after that, try replacing the power cord.

Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.

There is no reset button on the canister. It may be a bad power switch, a power cord, or the button that presses in when you put the water basin in place may be bad - or the prong on the water basin that pushes that button in when you place the canister on the basin may be broken off.
