Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Hi, I have been given a beautiful Husqvarna Prisma 980 and the power seems to have stopped getting to the machine.. The first time I plugged it in it worked, all the lights came up where they are supposed to, then the second time nothing =( Some help would be appreciated as I would like to fix it instead of throwing it in the bin Thanks Vicky

If you're really serious about getting this machine running, you need a service manual. Here is a .pdf download manual:
http://www.pdfbar.com/free-pdf-download/husqvarna%20viking%20prisma%20940-pdf-Lca.html
The power switch is always suspect, and connections to the computer boards (usually referred to as control boards) can be loose or slightly oxidized. Power supply boards can have bad capacitors that dry out after a few years and can break down. If they're metal or electrolytic caps, look for leaking or being split open. They're usually cylyndrical metallic parts, with 2 or 3 soldered legs.
Aside from these general things to check, the service manual will show you where any fuses are, and basically everything.
Good luck to you, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Hoover Rewind, the plug always got hot, tonight it just stopped working, I know it is not expensive and older but I really don't want to buy a new one if I can avoid it at this moment


I am not sure of the motor wattage but it is unlikely to exceed 2kw and is probably much less so that sort of load being plugged into a power outlet capable of safely delivering a much larger current is unlikely to cause heating of the plug. That the plug did become hot indicates a poor contact between the supply cables and power outlet, between the power outlet and plug or what seems the most likely, between the plug and the power cord.

Given that the plug has been getting hot and that most breakdowns of portable appliances including vacs are internal breaks of the power cord usually at or somewhere near the plug, so that would be a good place to start testing...

Why has my dc59 stopped charging


Hi David, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC59 seems to have stopped charging. It shouldn't have any issues with this when connected either directly with the charger cord, or when placed in the docking station as shown in our Getting started guide.

If you've checked to make sure there is no issue with the wall socket you're charging the machine from, and you're confident the charger cord is plugging securely into the machine as normal, we'd need to run you though a few further diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. This will help us determine what's causing the issue. If a replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under the 2-year Dyson cordless guarantee.

Please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Our Miele vacuum is only 2/3 years old and seems to have given up the gost, our previous one lasted 15 yrs. The machine starts ok and within 4/5 minutes the power drops down and the hoover comes to a stop...


There is a circut board that is going bad and not providing the power to run the motor. You will need to contact a Miele dealer for that part. It is the only board that is in this machine so they should just need a model number in order to get it for you.

Electrolux Oxygen 3


Most cord reels have a stop on it, it is a rubber wheel and when dust gets on the wheel, they won't always stop the reel. It would have to be opend up to get to the cord reel, then you could clean it out.

They aren't quality machines, they are made by Eureeka, not Electrolux. Aerus/ Electrolux is really the way to go!
