Where is the reset button on the kirby sentra


I'm not aware of any "reset" button. If the vacuum does not turn on, it's usually due to one of the accessories not being installed properly.

From the manual:

"IF THE MOTOR DOES NOT RUN WHEN THE MOTOR ON-OFF SWITCH IS PUSHED:

1. Make sure the Power Cord is plugged into an outlet and that the outlet has power. (Check for a blown fuse, tripped circuit breaker or power company trouble.)

2. Make sure the cord plug is fully inserted into the unit.

3. Look for breaks in the Power Cord insulation. If the cord is damaged, get a new one. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR IT. Use only a genuine Kirby® Power Cord. Do not use standard extension cords.

4. Make sure that an attachment or accessory is properly mounted on the front of the Power Plant. The unit will not run without the Power Nozzle , Hose Coupling, Air Intake Guard or Accessory Brush Nozzle in place.

5. The unit will not operate without either a Filtration Bag Assembly/ Mini Em-Tor® collector ?, Attachment Hose or Carpet Shampoo Tank properly installed on the Air Exhaust Port ?.

6. The Filtration Bag Assembly/Mini Em-Tor collector, Attachment Hose or Carpet Shampoo Tank must "click" firmly into place for the unit to operate. If the fitting is too tight and you have difficulty installing the above, apply a small drop of water to the gasket to reduce friction and ease installation.

Kenmore canister - trips 15 amp circuit breaker


Check specs on unit and amperage. If it is less than 15 then the upstairs breaker is kicking off prematurely - Not uncommon event. If unit is drawing more power than specs there is excessive friction in motor bearings. Also check out brushes for good contact since they wear.

From the description it sounds as if there had to be a short in the unit somewhere. This is what would have tripped the breaker. the fact that it is not tripping could mean that there is a fusible link or that the wires or whatever have burned back from the short, and are no longer shorting out.

My e wave microwave appears to be in fine working order until the door is opened. It then trips the breaker and ceases working. Ater the house breaker is reset, the power is restored to the microwave...


You may have a short circuit on the INTERIOR LIGHT BULB circuit in your microwave.

This might explain why the breaker trips every time you open the door.

If so, you would have to unplug and disassemble the unit in order to access the wires and light bulb socket inside the case in order to troubleshoot and repair the problem.

If you are unfamiliar with safe electrical troubleshooting and repair procedures, please be extremely careful or consider hiring an electrician to do the work. There are some hazardous components inside which remain dangerous even after the unit is unplugged.

Good luck.

After using the vac for 10 minutes or so, the motor starts turning on and off with greater frequency the longer I let it run. Eventually it is on and off so frequently that it has no power. Would this...


No it dosen't. I fix central vacs all the time and relays usally don't do what you described. They either go out all the way and won't turn on or they will trip and you will have to push the breaker back in. What is probably happening is you have a short in your low voltage wiring. this wiring goes from the hose handle all the way back to the unit (you can see the two little wires clip in to the side of the unit). My guess is that it is in the hose some where and when you turn it a certain way it shorts and the unit turns off. It can be hard to find shorts sometimes so you might need to call an expert.

Dusty smoking smell, stops working, trips out power in house.


you forgot to say if it is a 3 phase machine
if it is 3 phase then a phase in the unit is overheating and that will stop the machine then blow the breaker as all phases have to draw equal current
if it is a single phase then the start/ run capacitor or centrifugal start run points are not breaking at speed and so the start windings are overheating and causing the breaker to trip
Take it to an electrical motor rewind shop and have it properly tested with test equipment
