    Thank you for your reply. But that's part of the problem - we can't find the manual. I have tried to on line, with no success. Where might the fuse be located? fyi- i am able to turn on the vacuum for short periods, but within a 10-15 minutes it shuts itself off, any ideas?

    Thanks again,

    vacuun is used for about 15-20 mins. Than shuts off. Wait for a while and does the same thing. Motor does not seem hot. Is there a reset for the vacuum?

I don't know about this particular model, but if you did opperate a full vacuum cleaner until it got hot and went off on it's own, this means you might have overloaded the motor and blown the protection fuse. in this case, you might have to change it. refer to the owner's manual about overload protection.

    btw, your fyi was really helpful, if you can turn the vacuum on, this totally eliminates the fuse as the cause of the problem.
    check the suction power by placing your hand to block the hose, normally it should pull on your hand, if its weak this means that something is blocking the air way.
    try this:
    - check if there is a removable filter that you can take out and clean.
    - check the air way for any thing that might be stuck and blocking it. check the hose, brushes, and remove any thing you find stuck in them.
    - also touch the vacuum body right after it goes off on its own and see if it is up normally hot.
    i hope this does it for you, post again and tell me what happens.
    good luck.

It may need a new switch. If it runs for a while and shuts off it maybe overheating and need new filters.

Reset switch



There is no reset button it as a Thermal Cut Off



This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly

shuts off, turn the switch off and unplug the cleaner.

Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a blocked hose or clogged filters. If these conditions are found, fix

them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30-minute period, plug the cleaner back in and

turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run, then call 1-800-282-2886 for customer assistance
this link below is the manual

Hoover Mach 5 turns off after 5 minutes of using. Can you advise the problem?


5 minutes everytime? If so, raise brush all the way, and vacuum next to nothing. in fact, tilt vac up so the brush touches nothing. wait 5 minutes. If it doesn't shut off, your brush is set too high. if it does, the motor is over heating. make sure bag is empty, no debris in brush, filters clean and make sure you're not plugged into an outlet that a breaker on the outlet can pop too.

Dyson07animal won't turn on


First try another outlet. The likely problem is that your Dyson power switch may need to be replaced. If the vacuum cleaner switched off whilst you were using it you may be experiencing a thermal cut-off. Call the Dyson helpline, they'll let you know what your options are to fix your vacuum cleaner.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best place to order the Bissell part is to check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to look @ the Bissell website or to call the Bissell cust serv @ the Bissell factory, and give then the name on the Bissell, Model # and they should be able to send you the part. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Will not start ...I get a momentary flicker of power about every 3rd or 4th time that I flick on the power switch. Outlet is fine / Plug looks good / cord looks good / I see no obstructions ........Would appreciate any helpful thoughts ....Trying to get Mom's Eureka 2961AVZ back up and running. Thanks

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that you may have a bad switch or the worst scenario would be a bad motor and or armature, and the armature is almost the cost of the new motor, so I would replace the motor, but check the switch and the cord because sometimes the cord looks good but there might be broken wires inside the cord that you can’t see. If the vacuum is less than one year old the motor would be covered under the factory warranty if one year and maybe the switch as well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
