Vacuum was working fine now it won't even turn on


Hi,

Did the vacuum just stop dead while you were using it? The vacuum contains a thermal-fuse which will cut the power off if it gets too hot. Unplug it and leave to cool for 10-20 minutes and then try it again.

If the vacuum has already been allowed to cool and there is no power, there are many possible faults including the power switch, motor and thermal fuse. In order to determine where the fault is, you will need an ohm-meter / multi-meter.

If you've allowed the vacuum to cool and it's still dead, please post back for further assistance and let me know whether you have any electrical test equipment.

Regards,
BElectric

Miele vacuum cleaner suddenly stops


So this is a problem I identified in Miele's mid size ranged canister cleaners. Not only the S318...

If you go about cleaning on the highest power setting the engine will overheat after 5-10 minutes. It then will need around 20-30 minutes to cool down before you can use it again.

Tip: Don't run the machine on 100% power, instead turn the setting to around 80-90% and then you can enjoy good suction un-interrupted.

I was vacuuming with bissell 3750-T and I shut it off and went to turn it back on and will not start or do anything, what is wrong?


If you can't smell burning then it's probably a broken power switch or the vacuum got too hot and the thermal overload protection has tripped. Try leaving it off for 15-30 minutes and try it again. The thermal overload will reset itself during this time and it should work again.

In the meantime, make sure you have power to the vacuum, check for any blockages and check that the rollers in the cleaning head will turn by hand. Also, give your filters a clean. Any of these could cause the vacuum to overheat.

If you've already done this and/or power doesn't return after 15-30 minutes, I would start by checking the switch.

A couple of questions . . .

1. Does the power switch feel "normal" - basically does it have a positive feel when you switch on and off?
2. How long had you been using the vacuum before it stopped working?

Stop working. brush was cloged. It there a reset button?


i had a similar thing happen and just got off the phone with dyson. there is a resettable switch on the handle. they told me to start the vacuum in the upright position, put it in the non upright position, then push and hold in the beater bar switch which is located next to the on/off button for 10 seconds and the beater bar should start to function once again

Vacuum shuts down after 5-10 min of use


It may have a problem of overheating. If you havn't cleaned out the thing that holds all the dirt and dust, you may want to consider doing that. There might be a thermostat in it that shuts down whenever it thinks it's to hot.

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

This is from the Dyson web page:
Get expert help Thermal cut out Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.
Any non- domestic use may adversely affect the filter performance such as vacuuming up plaster dust.


Sounds like your vacuum is overheating. Check the above.
