My Bosch vacuum won't start


Check the easy things first. Check your circuit breakers. Will a lamp or another appliance work when plugged into the same outlet? If it is plugged in and you wiggle the cord near the plug and near the vacuum will the motor try to run? This would indicate a faulty plug or cord. If the switch, plug or cord is bad, then you need an appliance repairman. Anything else is highly unusual and would probably require a new vacuum. Best of luck.

I have a brand new KitchenAid mixer that is 5 years old and never used. I unpacked it this morning and it won't turn on, no noise, no movement, nothing. Help.


Please check manually the motor and see if it moves freely. Now make sure that the power plug and the connections to the switch are not tampered , check the continuity of the plug to the switch and to the motors.
If you notice any dirt or insects make sure that this has not clogged on the motor. If so clean using a degreasing spray- WD40- would be recommended.
If the motor is tight , lightly oil or degrease using the spray while manually rotating.
Once this is done connect the power while taking all precaution. Use the meter to check the flow of the circuit to the switch and to the motor. If there is a trip switch see that it is reset.
If there is power to the motor and still it does not work the brushes might be dirty and might need a cleaning/ reset.

Often if the plug or cord is a problem, it can be seen. Look carefully at the plug, are the prongs straight? Is the cord damaged where it enters the plug? Is the cord damaged where it enters the vacuum? If the plug was rotated, it is possible that the wires inside the cord may have frayed insulation and are making contact with each other.
If it is the plug or the plug end of the cord, you can get a new plug at Home Depot and replace your old one.
Also, if you have a switched outlet or switched multi outlet extension, you can shut the power to the outlets off, plug in the vacuum and turn on the switch so you are not near the plug when you plug it in to test it.

Maybe you got the wires crossed between the two cords. Vacuums have polarized plugs and if wired imcorrectly can definitely cause the vacuum to not work. Try switching over.
In other words, consider current wires as A1/A2 and B1/B2. Disconnect, then connect A1 to B2 and A2 to B1.

vacuum===============A1 A2=======Plug
===============B1 B2=======Plug

Switch to
vacuum===============A1 B2=======Plug
===============B1 A2=======Plug

Try this and see what happens.

Electric short


Remove the electrical cord and check the conituity for a short. If one replace the cord. If no short is found the motor is fried although the switch would have to be on when it smokes so I think you have a bad cord

Vacuum won't turn on when plugged in and switch is turned on


The easy answer to this problem is you need a new cord. Any fit all 20 to 35 foot two wire cord will work. However, you will need to take disassemble the almost the entire vacuum to test the current cord to see if it is bad. There are a lot of pieces to take off to get to the inside of the vacuum where the cord enters from the back. You could also have a bad motor.

Won't start


Hello rperlin. Your AC cord most likely has a broken wire in it. Please be careful is this action I suggest and DON'T touch a bare wire. Plug unit in, turn power on, now sowly flex the AC cord close to the plug, no sparks or motor starts, flex the cord near the vacuum, ext. If you get an action you have found the location of your broken wire. Replacing it will be a chore. Make notes on wire color and witch one went where. A factory replacement may be costly, Visit your local hardware store & ask for help in electrical dept. Electrical lesson#2. Aquire a DVM or more commonly VOM(meter) & check for ohms in the AC cord. IF you elminate the cord HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM. Your switch, motor brushes, or control switches internal are the problem. Good luck.

Won't turn on; no lights, no power.


Did you try a different outlet? The cord may have gone bad, most of the times I find that people don't pull the plug out of the outlet by the plug, they just pull the cord, or it got yanked out some other way and that will break the wire inside the cord. Other then that, it would have to be taken apart to find the problem.
