My cord has to be pushed in to socket and giggled to get the vacuum to have power? Any suggestions?

You might want to remove the electric plug from the wall and spread the prongs just a little bit, it sounds like the plug might be loose in the wall socket.....try it in another wall socket and see if the problem continues to exist...generally it you get the same result from similar wall may have looseness in the electrical plug...meaning that you might have been unplugging the cord by grabbing the cord and snatching versus unplugging with the plug itself. Hope this helps.

Does not work

1) TEST THE outlet receptacle wall, and reset the c.breaker
2) test the power cord for open or break wires and replace.
3) test the c.breaker or blown fuse inside
4) Test the drive belt for break
5) Test the motor for faulty. see the diagram attached and proceed with logic sense. God bless you

Cable is stuck in the vacume s 1361 hoover

Unplug the vacuum from the wall. Disasemble the brush assembly. Usally there are 2 screws, one on each side. Manually reverse the brush and dislarge the cord. Inspect the cord to make sure its not frayed or exposed wire before reusing.

I received this electric blanket as a gift and it will not heat up on either side. There is no light on the controls when I turn the blanket on. I need my blanket to work - it's like brand new!

Appears to be that the power is not getting to the temperature controllers. Suspect a problem in the wiring between the wall outlet (if not the wall outlet) to the temperature controllers. Look for broken plug at end of cord or a break in the cord between the plug and the controller. Last, you may have to look at the connections inside the temperature controller the power cord goes to in order to see if there is something loose inside. But do this with the blanket unplugged.

While vacuming my kirby turn off and on by itself

Hi there SmartAlec from here. The problem you are describing is usually (95% of the time) caused by a worn section of power cord. On a kirby you can easily replace the cord complete and its not to expensive. If you are in Australia the link to the 240V version is here. Hope this helps
Happy Vacuuming.

My old vacume had the same problem - the wire had a 'plug' on both ends. 1 to the wall outlet and 1 to the vacume, which you could pull out of the vacume. It was making poor contact at the vacume and eventialy burned out (melted)
See if the plug/wire to the unit is removable, if so is it damaged?,
could need a cleaning, or it may not be pushed in all the way.

Good Luck

How do you take the DC11 apart?

Unplug the unit from any power first.

To get the unit apart you have to Carefully pry off the wheels from both sides of the unit to allow access to another 4 torx screws. Use a longer flat blade screw driver and insert this between the wheel and the body of the vacum as close to the wheels center of rotation as much as possible. This should allow you open the clamshell like case. Once inside you can test the power switch and connections. My switch tested good but there is a problem with the power cord that I am trying to determine.

I am trying to replace the cord but the cord reel assembly and cord seems tighly integrated so I may end up buying the replacement power cord assembly if it is available for purchase to the general public and not only service centers. I will try the plug into the wall assembly first as it is easier to replace.

Good luck

Unplugged while unit was on by mistake and now it will not turn off with switch

it sound like you have pulled the wire to tight and it has shorted the switch inside the vacuum, so the wires are connecting, to cure this unplug from power supply and remove the cover to the switch and relocate it into its slot where it should originally should go, of course the housing to which the switch locates may now be damaged, but you should be able to stop the wires from touching and this will let you work the vacuum properly

secure the cable again where it comes out of the machine
