A newer model unit (withing 5-7 years) has a deadman switch inside. This means that if the filter is out of the machine or not in properly it will not start the motor until the filter is back in its proper place.

If it is an older model, what you can test is the low voltage lines coming into the unit. Where they go into the unit (usually red or black circular with the two "phone wires"), take a screwdriver and touch the two wires with the screwdriver. What you are looking for at this moment is either a "click" or the motor will start.

If the motor starts, great, now you have to trace the wiring and see where it went bad.
If the unit clicks, its possible it is your motor.

Either way, good luck.

Power mate brush motor not coming on and overload rest not doing anything


I don't believe that there's any penalty for using the proper amount of words to give us a fair idea of what's going on or not, with your machine." Power mate brush motor not coming on" only gives us a bare minimum of info. Does the vac motor run alone, does it still run when you slide the selector to vac & P.M. or does it quit, have you tried pushing the little red reset button down?

Beater bar motor quit, now the main motor quit. Replaced the on/off switch. still nothing


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced.

Is there a reset button for Kirby G6?


One set button on your Kirby. Remove the head to check for blockage in the fan.

Maybe open the motor casing and look for an overheat reset button. If it doesn't have one, check for voltage at the wires coming directly out of the motor. If it has power there and no reset switch, then the motor needs replaced or rebuilt.

Brand new machine red button doesn't depress- it feels springy but doesn't click therefore brush not working


Hi Moya,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC24. If the brushbar won't rotate, it may simply need resetting. Please follow the steps shown in the video below to reset it - make sure you have the cleaner reclined into the vacuuming position before testing it, as the brushbar will never run when the cleaner is standing upright.

However, if this doesn't restart the brushbar, it's best if you get in touch with us directly so we can help. You can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

I have a emerson insinkerator that has nothing working checked breaker and reset button??no power??


First check that you have voltage at the outlet and that the switch is working. There is a reset button on the bottom of the unit - have you tried to reset that? If not, try it! If that doesn't do it, unplug your unit and use an allen wrench to rotate the motor (CW), if it won't turn then you either have something like a bone or spoon wedged in it or the motor is bad. If the motot is bad it is cheaper to replace than to repair.

I have to reset my Beam Central vac quite often!!!


Check to see if there is a clog in the system. Something is causing stress on your motor causing it to switch off. Or it could be the motor itself failing.

First check for a clog, if you can't find anything wrong, call Beam for assistance
