I tugged on the canister, and as usual, the thing flipped over, but this time it shut off and would not turn on.
On closer inspection, the 360 swivel head's power "piece" was cracked (the part that slid into the canister itself on the hose), and could not be repaired. Since this has electric "fingers" on it so the switch on the handle works, I replaced.
However, it still won't turn on. Is there a fuse in the canister?

It sounds like you have a dead short. Check the wire, it quite often will break at the point that it comes out of the machine. The power is going straight back to the panel before it gets to the motor and that flips the breaker. It probably needs the whole wire replaced. If you can take it apart, check with an ohm meter to see which wire it broken. Do not have it plugged in while doing this.
Try standing the vacuum on end, or at a near vertical position, and gently tugging on the cord a few times. This will usually cause it to retract. The problem is usually caused by pulling the cord out too far. Avoid doing this as it can result in disconnecting or breaking terminals and/or wiring.
hi from uk your problem with the canister cover/door coming off whilst vaccing ? you have renewed bag ? ok but there is a filter/gauze also inside the canister where bag is fitted if you check inside you should see the filter at opposite end from where bag is secured it is usually fitted behind a slotted pull out plastic gate ? this filter/gauze is to allow air out of canister when vaccing and the filter traps any dust that may accumulate inside the canister case so the dust does not get blown out to atmosphere/rooms SO if this filter is clogged it will not allow vacced air to escape out of canister so result is build up of pressure within cylinder and eventually cover flips open ! so for now you can remove filter/gauze and wash then dry refit this will allow air to escape from canister but still retain dust particles from escaping as it is designed for however may i suggest you replace filter when convenient ? all above is on assuming that the latch on cover is working ok and not now damaged ? hope this helps best wishes
belt could be melted to the motor that spins the brush, try free spinning the brush with your hand to see if the brush spins freely, if it does not the brush bearings could be frozen, or just need a simple new belt...hope this helps
