When I plugged it in it started then turned off - now it will not start again. I check the Outlet and that was fine, I even tried a different outlet. When it went out I wiggled the cord thinking it was loose - it sparked but did not start up.
Possible bad plug or outlet - but 1st remove/replace tanks and try again at a different outlet. For some reason all Hoovers models have some sort of "shut off" if you hit a wall edge too hard or when you turn you make the machine off balance. The r& r of tanks always works for me when I get an unexpected shut off. Also - it will make that noise you hear when the tanks are full first - then shut off even though they are no where near full.....

Some vacs shut off when the dirt bag is full Check your brush area and see if there is dirt or bits of string like things wrapped around the brush or the brush ends. This will cause the machine to shut down as well if there is pressure holding the brushes. Will it run if you wiggle the plug if so you could have a bad plug as well.
Check the easy things first. Check your circuit breakers. Will a lamp or another appliance work when plugged into the same outlet? If it is plugged in and you wiggle the cord near the plug and near the vacuum will the motor try to run? This would indicate a faulty plug or cord. If the switch, plug or cord is bad, then you need an appliance repairman. Anything else is highly unusual and would probably require a new vacuum. Best of luck.
There are numerous reasons. If there was no smoke or burning smell, first try a different outlet. Then you can try wiggling the cord and check cord for damage, if you can get it to start and it turns off again cord is loose or damaged. Try the switch, sometimes switch wears out, if it is not making a click sound or is very loose it may be the switch. The most common reason for an E series to not start after working just fine is a broken actuator on the water basin or missing from the bottom of the vacuum. There is a raised part on the water basin that depresses a little black plastic actuator on the bottom of the vacuum. This is a safety switch to make sure the water basin is there so the vacuum will turn on. You can try pressing in on that and trying to start your vacuum, if it starts you will need to check and see if the part is broken off of your basin or if the little black actuator is missing. You can see pictures here.
you can test this out by taking a small metal spoon and with the bottom side of the spoon insert it into the vac outlet on the wall. you want to touch the two metal pins inside the vac outlet to test if the unit is the problem or the hose is the problem.
If the unit starts, the hose should have a 3 year warranty on it. I recommend you have your nearest beam dealer check it out.
If the unit does not start, it has a 7 or 10 year warranty, the circuitry should be replaced. Again have your nearest beam dealer check it out.
I have an Oreck vacuum. My son used it just earlier today and it worked just fine, then just a little while ago a tried to turn it on to vacuum our bedroom and suddenly it won't turn on! I tried plugging it into other outlets but it was no use. My husband takes a look at it and first thinks that the switch is out in it. He takes the handle apart and quickly realizes that it is not the switch that is causing the problem. Then he took the base of the vacuum apart, removes the spin brush part and cleans it off, puts it back together, and suddenly it works! He said that when those brushes get real dirty the motor gets clogged, then it just won't turn on. I'm just happy I married someone who can figure these things out, because even if I knew the problem I'm still no good with a screwdriver, taking things apart and putting them back together again. Hope this works for your Oreck too and it's running again for you soon.
I would say check inside the plug and make sure the connections are tight. If the vacume runs fine on the other socket outlet then it will bw a faulty socket which cuts your hoover out. Can buy a new socket frount from diy stores for about 2-3 pounds. If the hoover also cuts out on the other sochet it will be a temperature cut out device on your hoover. If this is the case empty the bag and give it a good clean and get rid of any accumalation of dust/dirt
