I have an upright, but use it as a canister. It will start sometimes and vac for about half and hour and then it will quit. I can't get it started again even after it cools off.

First check the hose and down by the brush roll for a clog. If there is a clog, it will cause the motor to overheat and the theremo protector will cause the motor to shut off until it has cooled. Now if it won't turn back on, the thermo protector may have gone bad, or the motor itself has gone bad.

My vacuum is constantly shutting itself off. When


It sounds like you have a blockage somewhere and the air is not passing over the motor to keep it cool. There is usually a thermostat mounted either on or near the motor. The blockage can be anywhere from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper if you have a canister vac) up thru the hose.If you have a canister vac, use a broom handle to push through the hose to clear the blockage. DO NOT ! use a coat hanger or anything that will cut or tare the hose. There are electrical wires in it that have 120 volts and causes quite a shock !
.
If you have an upright vac, start with the duct hose that comes from the part with the brush up to the hose and on to the main canister of the vac
If this does not work, take your vac to a reputable vac shop for repair. Hope this helps,
Joe

My canister machine kicks off immediately after starting and bag full light goes on but it has a new bag


hi from uk your problem with vac may be the gauze filter on the inside of the compartment that has bag this filter there to allow air from the micro pores of the bag to expel to the exterior of vac (room) whilst preventing dust from expelling too ? normally another symptom of this is the vac cover sometimes flips up ? however if air cannot expel from compartment it will cause overheat of motor resulting in auto cut off but will reset when cooled SO check the filter gauze and renew or wash clean? hope you understand above and hope this helps ?

My vacuum has no suction and when power is on and I stand it upright it shuts off


soonds to me like you need to check all of the removeable port inlets. Check for debris. what we find quite often, especially with pet owners, is that the collection tank, even after dumping is plugged with fine particulates and or pet hair lodged up high inthe cones. try tapping your dirt cup on the floor not too hard, and then dump the dirt. if you have access to a air compressor, or a canister vac w/ a blower port, blowing the tank out quite often will give good results.

Bissell easy vac plus


Press the lock button down and forward (away from the
Canister Handle) while lifting the upper portion of the Dirt Cup
away from the Canister. The bottom box should then come out.

If you need a user manual for this model I have one and can send it to you if you email me.

Shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out


Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.
