It might be a simple switch issue. I would take it to a vacuum repair shop, one with free estimates. This way you will know for sure. and it should not cost you much?

Kirby Vacuum Cleaner on/off switch won't stay switched on


If the motor turns on turns off in the course of the vacuuming, check the cord or the switch This is how you replace your cord on a Sentria vaxuum.

The carpet beater doesn't work and we have pressed the red button on the side aswell but still doesn't work any ideas ?


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC24. Your cleaner is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the brushbar if it gets tangled with a rug fringe, shoelace etc. After making sure the brushbar is free of threads, hair or other obstructions, you should be able to reset the cleaner and get the brushbar running again. Although I note you've already pressed the reset button, I'd recommend using something like the blunt end of a pencil to depress the button, and making sure you push it in firmly until you hear an audible 'click'.

Please note, the brushbar will never rotate when the cleaner is standing in the upright position, or if you've turned it off using the silver switch next to the red on/off switch.

Hopefully this should resolve your issue. However, if you're still having difficulties, please get in touch with us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you and provide the assistance you need.

Kind regards

My electrolux oxygen won't turn on. Could it be the switch and can I fix it myself?


mcdevito75 here, The first thing is to make sure you are useing a live or good wall outlet. Then you can try the on / off switch a few times. If this doesn"t work it may be the switch itself. Look for an appliance repair center in your area.

Vacuum will not turn on


Kenmore Model 116, behind the Vacuum cleaner there is a Motor Reset switch which you need to press.
1. Make sure the Vacuum Cleaner is unplugged.
2. Press the reset button gently in with a pen.
3. Plug back the Vacuum cleaner and it should work.

Vacuum won't stay on


The switches stick on those units. You can unplug it and take the switch cover off, and pull the stem up and the switch to loosen it. I usually put a dab of penetrating oil on it and never has an issue again.

Vacuum won't stay on
posted by trobinson66 on May 01, 2008
I think the switch is broken--it will come on, but the switch does not stay engaged. I'd like to try to fix myself, if possible. Any thoughts?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Hoover Telios Canister Vacuum Powerteam
When you uninstalled the switch did you mark the wires to duplicate the procedure in re- installing the part, it is possible that you have a bad switch, please check your owner’s manual for the trouble shooting guide to see what you might have done wrong. If the switch is wired correctly it should work, but one wire could be off and not connected correctly then the switch will not work. Feel free to contact your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
