Some of the Sharp's have a fuse in by the switch. Could be blown fuse, bad switch or bad cord. The worst would be an open in the motor.

Dyson dc08 motor made rumbling sound and stopped


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Almost certainly it is the motor gone :(. Take off the lid that is under your bin and look at the filter underneath, if it has a black underside and a kind of burnt smell you will need to put a new motor in. If you happen to live in Australia you can get a motor from NelsonVacuums.com.au here is a link to the correct page. Hope this helps.
happy Vacuuming!

Fantom twister wont work light is on


When you say, "just stopped", did the MOTOR stop operating and there's no sound from it at all? Or, is the motor still working or sounds like it does, and it stopped vacumning?

If the MOTOR stopped, most likely there is a short somewhere in the connection at the motor. Think 'repair shop'.
If the motor still runs and there's no VACUMN ACTION, think Roller Brush which operates by virtue of a rubber belt. Turn the machine on its side and turn it ON, keeping FINGERS !AWAY! from the roller area. If the Roller Brush is not moving it may be that the belt has slipped off or is broken or simply too loose to turn the Roller. Also sometimes debris such as strings, long hair, carpet strands/fibers will become wrapped around the roller especially next to the roller bearing/brace points, to the point of binding so tightly that the roller will no longer be able to actually roll which would now prevent it from 'Vacumning' or sweeping dirt and such up into the vortex of the vacumn chamber. In which case, !!UNPLUG!! the machine, use small scissors to cut away the material wrapped around the roller paying particular attention to the brace point areas.

MY SHOP VAC STOPPED WORKING AFTER USING IT FOR A WHILE


If by stopped working you mean that it no longer has any suction, then check the hose for a clog and also clean all the filters.

If you mean that it literally stopped running, then the most common cause is a faulty switch. If the machine is still under warranty, contact Shop Vac for a replacement motor, Switches for shop vacs are not available, only replacement motors. If the machine is not under warranty you can either replace the motor or the whole machine.

Motor and Lights stopped suddenly after vacuuming...
Posted by Brigham81 on Jul 05, 2008
I was vacuuming the stairs, and all of a sudden the light went out and the motor stopped. Is it possible to overheat it, or blow a fuse? Thanks, Brigham

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum. It sounds to me that when the lights go out and it stops working that the motor is bad that you would have to replace the motor. It is still cheaper to replace the motor than to purchase a new vacuum. 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.

Losing power on a carpet attachment


Does the motor stop or the brush roll? If it is the brush roll, then replace the belt. If the motor is stopping, then it could be the motor or the cord for the opwer head.

Beater bar brush stopped working...


Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.
