If there is no burning smell associated with this problem, it is quite possible that the cord is broken near the top where it is attached to the handle. It is quite common for the cord to break there.

It is also possible that it is the switch within the unit as well. Just not making a proper connection. A new switch, altho a little more costly is much harder to change than the cord.

Why doe my hoover mach3 stop during operation? I have to wait until the moter cools down.Then i turn on the switch normal way.Then a few minutes latter it stops again.


Your Hoover is stopping because it is overheating. This is a sure sign that there is a blockage somewhere. Find the blockage and clear it, and that should solve the problem.

The carpet is not intended to get soaked, like what you see with a spray application. If you are seeing a stream of water in the nozzle/tank during the recovery stroke, this is working properly.

The brush motor starts and stops during use


Is it the actual motor stopping or the belt that spins the brush that's slipping? if its belt slip, this happens, pretty common on all belt vacs, dirt and dust gets under the belt and causes it to just slip with no actual grip on the brush end. This slipping can also cause to much friction ware and actually changes the inner diameter of the belt so even cleaned it would still (maybe) slip so need a replaced belt.

But I'd take the belt off first and clean it as well as the heads it spins over then try it again. Make sure you unplug from the wall, a vac brush can and will take your fingers clean off.

Replacing the power switch of the Eureka The Boss 4870 vacuum


its actually just held in place with two small plastic clips. so just gently start pulling the plastic housing up. it will pop off with some force. not so much that you break anything however. but there are no screws or anything. to get it back on you will need something to pry away the plastic section where the slots are for the clips. that way the clips can fit back in the slots instead of just dead ending into the handle. im sure there is a more proper way, but sometimes you have to get it done. my vacuum just stopped working one day. when I opened it up, I pushed the little connectors pretty hard back onto the switch. one of them clicked a bit. as it turns out it was just loose and therefore not making a proper electrical connection. so I pushed it snugly back together, jammed the housing back on, replaced the screws, and had it running again. just make sure to unplug it while you do this.

Reset Button on my Dyson DC 25 Animal


What do you want to reset? Do you mean the motor has stopped working? There is no "reset button". The motor has an automatic cut-out, which will operate if the motor gets too hot and will reset itself when it cools. If the motor will not work when it's cool, then you have an electrical problem which will probably need professional attention.

Miele Solarus Canister Vacuum stopped working


I am an amateur and novice.
Tracked My Miele problem to a bad connection at the outlet plug.

i think the constant slapping of the plug against the housing during rewind prob disconnected the wires inside the plug? Replaced plug
