Question about Vacuums
Same thing happened to me. The handle connects to the unit and actually plugs in. If you are lifting or carrying it by the handle then you can unplug the unit from itself. Reconnect it and you should be good to go.

There are two cord wraps on the back of the handle, and in between that are two screw holes, you only need to take one screw out, its the one on top of the other screw hole. Completely remove the screw using a philips head screw driver then slide the handle backwards if your behind the machine. Then after taking it completely off, slide the handle back in and make sure its flush all the way up in front that if you look at the front of machine, the upper handle is even to the lower body, then put screw back on tight, that should fix the power problem.

I had the same problem. After reading this I saw what was meant. Slid it in flush and tightened the screw. All is fine.

Thanks for the suggestions. This happened to me, but once I realized that I just had to slide the handle back into place, I'm sweeping again! For anyone else with this problem, look at diagram #1, and then check your vacuum to be sure it is aligned.

Here is a picture which may help you, but if this is less then 2 tears old, then it is in warranty. Maybe if you call and make an appointment to bring it in early, they could look at and possibly have it fixed so you can take it home.
