Question about Vacuums
Sounds like a loose wire or contact of some sort.
Might be a bit too much for a novice to tackle.
I would start by UNPLUGGING the unit and try to get at the ON/OFF switch to see if there is a wire loose. If no loose wire is found I would trace the wire to the motor to see if there is a break in the cord, cut in the cord, etc.
Doing electrical work like this could be dangerous for the uninformed and may take some special equipment. Depending on what you paid for the unit, you may have to decide to pay or a repair or toss it.
WHATEVER YOU DO, MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS SAFE FROM ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS THAT COULD HARM YOU!
