This could be a faulty on/off switch or a broken lead wire or a faulty motor

My dyson won't turn on when plugged in ..seems problem with prongs on plug


It seems that it could be a problem with your power cord. I would start by checking to make sure it is good. If so, then check the switch next.

Blue light flashing on shark steam and spray mop


Read manual under trouble shooting.
1. If you have already plugged in the power cord, unplug and re-plug into another electrical wall
outlet. This may reset the Standby mode.
2. Add water to the water tank and press the On/Standby button to select a steam setting.
3. If your unit still does not work, call Customer Service at 1-800-798-7398.

My apple ipod touch wont turn on


I've seen this before. You need to reset it.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.

I hope this works!

Wind Tunnel vacuum motor won't turn on


The fact that you wiggled the cord and it came on would seem to indicate a defective cord, either at the plug end or at the machine itself. Look again at where the cord enters the vac and at the wall. twist it slightly if you see a thin or collapsed area that is your problem.

Vacuum is not turning on


Try a ruling out a couple of things first before opening up the handle:

1) First lets make sure your outlet has power
a) can you plug anything else in and have it work?
b) is the vacuum plugged into a non-switched outlet?
c) will the vacuum work from a different outlet - in a different room?

2) Check the plug. Are the prongs loose? If so, you'll need to cut the
plug off, splice back the two wires (Black and White), then connect
to a new plug. You can get a new plug for $1-2.00 at any hardware
store.

3) Time to open up the handle:
a) sometimes the wires connected to the switch can become loose
and fall off. if that is the case just reconnect by plugging them
back onto the switch. You may also consider using pliers to
compress the connector onto the switch terminal.

Hope this helps!

Will not start again.


If the cord sparked, then it is bad and needs replaement. If it sparked at the plug end, then replace the plug.
