See if you are getting 120Vac to the main on off switch with respect to ground.

Sometimes, the plug end's have a fuse melded in to the plug in and can only be replaced.

Check to see if the bag, if applicable, is put in correctly as you will see that it pushes a trigger switch up and down, this is another biggie!

If the hose is not plugged in also some will not work for there is another sensor switch at the socket canister.

Lastly, you will have to open the unit up and trace out from the power cord to inside the vac to a module with a TRIAC on the pc board which will open on a surge. they are a 600EW is the original part and can be purchased at Main Electronic's for $3.47 CAN Ph Mike at 604-872-0267

Also, check the main switch on the vac cannister to see if voltage is passing through it first!

Vacuum was working fine one day, next day it won't come on

You can try doing this first, plug it in to your outlet and switch it on. If it will not start, try to move the wire near the plug to see if the problem is a lose wire in that area. If it responds in moving the wire you have to replace the plug of your vacuum. Message me if you need further assistance. Thanks..

Hi. My vacuum won't power up. The plug-in is OK. Is there a re-set on the motor I can try? Thank you, Vic

Need to know which vacuum it is. The more reasonable vacuums will not have a reset. You probably are missing a filter that needs to be cleaned. Your cord could be bad or even the plug on it. Depending on what it is worth and how much you like it, you should take it to a vacuum shop.

My parents won an Innovage Auto Series wet & dry vacuum. It is missing the crevice and nozzle attachment and the hose. Can these be purchased separately and if so, from where?

Not sure where you are located, but the parts should be available on line, perhaps even in your area.
Plug this into a Google search screen and it will show you who has the parts you are looking for:

Where is the reset button on shark navigator. vacuumed throw rug, and bar wont move

I'm not sure it has one. Check the owner's manual though.
Try this. Turn off vacuum. Unplug it. Make sure there are no clogs in main hose, power head intake tube, or intake inside tank. Plug it in, turn it on, and let us know what happens.

Dyson 07 plug gets very hot after prolonged vacuuming

Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.
