Remove the electrical cord and check the conituity for a short. If one replace the cord. If no short is found the motor is fried although the switch would have to be on when it smokes so I think you have a bad cord

When you plug in the vaccum it sparks from the outlet


If it trips the breaker, you have a short somewhere from the cord to the motor. If not, be sure to wait until it's plugged in before you turn the switch on. Turn it off before you unplug it.

Was vacuuming with no problem and the vaccum just shut off. . .what can I do?


Check that the electrical cord if fully inserted in the
wall outlet. See if the vac has a circuit breaker switch
on the electrical plug called a GCFI,or on the vac itself,which probably has tripped. Good luck.

This Model likes to shoot electrical sparks between the plug and wall outlet when plugging in. I'm afraid I'm going to burn out an outlet.


This sounds might hazardous! Worry less about burning out an outlet, and more about the risk of electrocuting yourself!
There's an electrical short-circuit somewhere, and the first place to look is the flex. Flex often gets damaged, usually just where it leaves the plug or where it enters the machine, especially if it's been pulled a lot. Damage is not always visible externally. I'd get it looked at by someone competent to deal with electrics. Better safe than sorry!

I have a Bissell 9200e that has only been used a few times. When I have gone to turn it on it made a loud crack and then tripped the electricity and everytime I turn it on it trips the electricity. Any...


Check plug to exclude short there, if none its an internal short circuit and machine would need opened to find it so if only used a few time return for under warranty repair.

While starting my vaccum cleaner big noise and stream is coming . it is dead?


No Brand? I think you mean big noise and smoke? Smoke can be from a burning belt or dying motor. If it smells like burning rubber you likely have something jamming the brush roll. Otherwise suspect the bang came from a motor fan. Do not attempt to run. disassemble and inspect

Is there suction where the pipe hooks to the cannister? If so, then are all of the outlets without suction? Maybe the hose is plugged. If the hose is ok, and there is suction at the cannister, then **** up a small **** of paper, one for each room outlet, have a number on each piece of paper, Which ever one doesn't ,ake it thru to the cannasiter is the outlet that is plugged. You can use a plumbers snake to clean out a clogged outlet or even a clogged hose.

If the motors are running and sound ok, then there has to be suction at the outlet on the cannister. If the filter bag is old, it may be best to replace it with a new one.
