Question about Vacuums
The vacuum does not shut off even when the switch is set to off. We replaced the switch and it did not help.
You didn't give brand and model number, some vacuums have a relay in them and they stick and stay on. If you have one, it will have to be replaced.

SOURCE: VACUUM WON'T SHUT OFF
Need a model number to be sure, but alot of the Sears cannisters have a relay and it is found mounted in the motor comparment, it may be sticking in the on position.
