Rather than coming out, it sounds more like the switch has come apart. It also sounds like you haven't got all the bits. Even if you'd got everything, and knew how to assemble it, there's a good chance it will come apart again anyway. The only safe thing to do is get a complete new switch.

Hi, last week I bought a new Henry vacuum with autosave, now the autosave feature is not working. The red indicator light does not light up and the motor does not change speed. Any ideas, other than...


Sadly you need to return to dealer, any problem contact Numatic (www.numatic.com), who supply it with a good 2 year warranty, which the dealer should support. This is a fault I see about 1 in 100, so you are a little unlucky. It will need a new switch and can easily be fitted by the dealer. With Henry's usual life expectancy anything from 5 -20 years it is well worth getting sorted.

My Old Henry hoover is making a VERY loud noise when switched on! Its still works but very loud, please help!


Most likely the motor bearings have worn out. You can fit a new motor quite easily, but if you need to pay someone else to do it for you the labour plus motor cost will probably make the job uneconomical. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

Formed metal wire inside handle


this bent metal wire goes right at the surface in a grove where the two pieces of the handle go together where your fingers grip it. I think it is to discharge static electricity.

Electrical Burning Smell from Henry HVR200 Vacuum Cleaner


Hi! Highly unlikely that you need a new motor.  Highly likely that you need new carbon brushes.  The smell is caused by excessive sparking between the worn brushes and the copper commutator segments.  Most carbon brushes (and from memory I suspect this includes Henry's) have a copper wire buried in their last few millimeters, and you really need to change them before that becomes exposed.   The longer you run it like this, the more likely you are to damage the commutator, so change them sooner rather than later.  When you change the brushes, you can smooth off the commutator with very fine abrasive paper (the objective is to smooth it, not scratch it!), and then blow all the dust away (or **** it away if you have another vac, of course).  Incidentally, you don't say if you are using a paper bag in your Henry. Some people, because the top-hat filter is so good, try to manage without a bag.  This is false economy!  You should always use a bag. I hope this helps! I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.
