Question about Hoover S1361 Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

I was vacuuming and the power abruptly stopped working. The plug had slightly slid out of the wall socket, but when I put it back in, it wouldn't power up again. The wall socket is working for other appliances.

The first thing to suspect is that the wall plug on the vacuum cleaner is defective, to confirm this you will need to access the on/off switch on the vacuum, there will be three wires coming to the switch from the cord, either the black or the white should be hot, most always it is the black wire, go from the black wire to the white and the green, u should have 110-115 AV volts reading on the volt meter, you can buy a volt meter from radio shack, a vacuum cleaner shop can repair the cord for very little cost, if u are not familiar with electrical testing then it is best left to a local vacuum repair shop, the can usually fix it while you wait if the cord is the problem which i suspect it is.

The vacuum cleaner that we just purchased about a month ago will not start today. I have no idea why. Help!


Plug another item into the wall socket and see if it works. If it does, plug the vacuum cleaner in and see if it works. If it doesn't take it back for replacement.

Tornado Piranha 2-Speed Floor Cleaner Machine will not turn on


If you get nothing on any speed, the first thing to check is whether you're getting power. The most common failure is the plug ( the part you put into the wall socket ) You can buy a replacement plug at any hardware store or you can take it to your local vacuum repair shop and have it fixed.

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 sockets...you 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.

Dear Davehibshman,

Firstly; dismantle the plug and replace the fuse with the same rating as the one you have just taken out. Replace the plug cover, put the plug into the socket and try again. If this doesnt work, there may be a problem with the internal fuse (if one is fitted). Two choices here, either refer this unit to a qualified service personnel/ the place where you got it from, or do the job yourself (which will save you a whole bunch of cash). In your circumstances, I would take it back to the place you got it and ask them to put the fault right, or replace the unit completely; if it is past its warranty or guarantee time, then get back to me with a make and model number of the unit, and I will give you step-by-step instructions on how to solve this.

Yours sincerely

Vacuum won't turn on when plugged in and switch is turned on


The easy answer to this problem is you need a new cord. Any fit all 20 to 35 foot two wire cord will work. However, you will need to take disassemble the almost the entire vacuum to test the current cord to see if it is bad. There are a lot of pieces to take off to get to the inside of the vacuum where the cord enters from the back. You could also have a bad motor.

My Dewalt dc500 only works on AC power (plugged in to wall socket). When you put in the battery it doesn't work. Can anyone help?


Check battery contactor on the vacuum and on the battery. It is a common problem on this vacuum. Check for bent pins and corrosion.

Bissell Healthy Home Won't turn on


I found the solution for my vaccum!!

The top handle connects to the lower half of the handle with one phiilips head screw. The screw is halfway between the cord holder on the back. The screw had come loose and the handle has slid back away making it not make contact to send the power down to the motor.
Hope this helps someone else!
