Is there a fuse or a reset button on a Ryobi 10 inch surface planer. My planer stopped working after getting too hot. Now, it won't even trn on....


check the motor for a thermal over load button
to stop it over heating take more lighter cuts as the motor is a small motor compared to what the cut can be

Was hoovering when it cut out. Now it wont turn on at all. Lisa.


Possibly broken cord. Its common for the cable to break a wire internally where the cable goes into the vacuum or near the plug as these points are the most strained when the machine is used. You will have to cut back the cable and reconnect into the machine and if you have a "moulded on " plug it will need to be cut off and a replacement plug fitted. If you are not sure, someone with a bit of electrical experience may be able to assist you. make sure its unplugged before you go playing with cables...

Won't turn on stop running in the middle of room.


Mine did the same thing. The electrical cord is loose where it plugs into the machine. When you pull the vacuum into the room it puts just enough strain on the cord to break the electrical connection. Push the plug on the cord firmly into the vacuum.

Hi, Plugged my unit into a faulty socket and it shorted. Raised the fuse while it was still plugged in and heard a strong "pop". The end of the cord is burnt and open and obviously burnt through...


It is very unlikely that the motor has been damaged. There is no fuse, but the cord will need replacement. I have replaced hundreds of cords and never encountered motor damage.

You need to measure for voltage inside the machine between the white wire and black wire from the power cord. If zero, the cord is likely broken at or near the plug end. This is a common problem if one pulls the plug by yanking on the cord instead of pulling on the plug directly. In any case, try cutting the cord off a little way back from the plug, and fit a new replacement plug from a home center or hardware store. If the voltage test above showed line voltage (115 volts AC in the US), then turn the switch to on, and measure for voltage between the white wire and the motor side of the switch. If good, then likely there is a motor brush problem or a broken winding in the motor. Repair of this usually requires dis-assembly of the housing around the motor. Hope this helps!

I need to replace power supply. where the cord


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Unfortunately there is no fuse on a Kirby Generation model. In my 10 years of repairing Kirby's as well as other vacuums I will tell you that 9 times out of 10, when a Kirby Generation doesn't turn on, it's the cord that needs to be replaced. This is by far the most common problem that we see on Kirby repairs.
The Kirby motor is very well built, and usually has a life of 30+ years (G3 is about 12-15 years now). The only other problem it could be on the Kirby would be carbon brushes, or the switch assembly.

I would first try testing the power cord, I think this will solve the problem for you. To test a cord on a Kirby Generation (all Generation models are the same machines, just different colors) first follow where the cord goes into the Kirby at the bottom. To access this cover easier, first remove the "boot" at the bottom of the outer bag. This is the plastic part at the bottom of the outer bag that connects onto the Kirby. You will see that there is a plastic cover over the cord. You will need to remove the screw that holds this cover on.

Now after you have removed the cover, pull the plug out of the machine. Once you have the cord disconnected from the machine, you can now test it to see if there is a short somewhere in the cord. You will need to purchase an inexpensive continuity tester from Home Depot, Radio Shack or most other electronic stores. This will tell you if there is power running through the cord, or if the cord is bad. With the continuity tester, plug the cord into the wall outlet, then put the positive, and negative testing rods into the female end of the cord that plugs into the machine. You will then be able to tell if the cord has continuity going through it. The tester will indicate if there's continuity or not.

The picture here shows that the cord is good. If your tester does not light up, or indicate that there is continuity, you'll simply just need to purchase a new cord. As I stated earlier, this is the most common reason that a Kirby won't turn on.

If however your cord tests OK, this indicates that the machine either needs a new motor (or carbon brushes in the motor) or it needs a new switch.

The vaccum can not work.


possible solution:

I had the same problem. try plugging in & pulling cord out of rewind a number of times. if motor goes on, you need repair on cord winder. per miele tech-"not common prob.", but repairman said "yes, common prob." good luck.

Male plug needs to be replaced.


I had same problem with my lift-off, i sent email to Bissell explaining what the problem was and where to get replacement parts. They sent me emial back saying they will send me refeb replacement vacuum becasue this part has been discontinued (I think there is a prolem with lift-off and Bissell is trying to make it right for their customer without official recall). I did get my fedex lable and i sent entier length of cord from my lift-off back to them. I should be getting my refeb vacuum soon.
