Vax stopped mid vacuuming,as though fuse in plug has blown.checked fuse,OK.no lights lit.vax not working.


Most vacuums have thermal protection on the motor that will shut it off if it gets too hot. If you can turn it off, wait 10-15 minutes, and it works when you turn it back on, that's what is going on. Now, the motor shouldn't normally get that hot, so your next challenge is finding out why. Check for any blockages in the air flow or cooling vents, and if the motor also powers something like a beater bar, make certain that it turns relatively freely.

Why does my vax rapide not turn on?


The only easy answer would be a bad connection at the plugin receptacle, a bad receptacle, open circuit-breaker or fuse at your electrical panel. Assuming these have all been verified as working
(check by plugging it into a different circuit in the house. If it works then the problem is at the original receptacle and not the vacuum). Then the electrical wiring and components of the vacuum must be checked. This is normally done by a qualified serviceman.

There is no rest button that I am aware of. Make sure the switch is pressed on firmly. The most common problem is a faulty switch, however there are several other possibilities. The vacuum has a simple overload switch that turns off when it is overloaded. Once it has cooled, it will close in again allowing it to work again. This could fail open but it is rare unless it has operated many times previous to not starting now. A more common problem is a broken or open wire. This usually happens at connections and may be burnt open because of a loose connection. Sometimes the start switch on the motor fails or the motor itself fails. Unless you are knowledgeable with working on electrical circuitry the repair should be done by a qualified repairman.

VAX CYINDER DEAD


Hi There, If you are talking about the Vax vacuums that are looking a bit like R2D2 (bucket on wheels) the most likely cause is a short in the power cord. It is easily fixed by shortening the cord by 30 cm. If you are not comfortable shortening an electrical lead any electrician or repair man will be able to do it for you. A second possible cause is a faulty switch. A distant third possible is the motor itself has failed.
The motor really should only be replaced by a technician unless you are very comfortable playing with this type of repair.

Hi...my dyson cylinder vac,DC08will not start when plugged in and switched on...after working fine yesterday...have checked plug etc. Any ideas??? Thanks.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

If the machine had been left overnight and then would not switch on the next day, then this sounds as though there may be a problem with the switch or the motor.

So that we can help you further, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298, between the hours of 7am - 10pm, 7 days a week.

Kind regards
