When I insert the hose into an vacumn outlet nothing happens. I tried pressing the reset button but still nothing.


First, make sure the unit is still plugged in.
2. Ensure the circuit breaker has not blown. This is easily checked by simply plugging another item into the outlet. If it has blown, flip it back on. If it continues to blow, there's a short in the cord or wiring of the vacuum.
3. Is it just one outlet, or all of them. If it's just one, it needs replaced.
4. Check the prongs on the hose, wands, and power nozzle to ensure they haven't shorted out.
5. Use a multimeter or continuity tester to check wires in the hose. Touch lead of the mm or ct to a prong on the hose, the other lead to the connector on the other end of the hose. Check both connectors. One should show continuity, the other will not. Repeat for other prong. If either prong shows zero, hose needs replaced.
6. Motor is burned out and needs replaced.
There are other problems that could cause this, so I recommend taking it to the Broan-NuTone dealer you got it from for them to check the vacuum for problems.

If it was just a broken belt you would still hear the motor running. most likely its in your cord or switch. check the main cord, connections to the switch, and also the motor supply cord that goes from the handle to the vacuum head.

Power brush will only operate on push stroke


If the motor runs, the circuit breaker is working. If it only works on the push stroke, you probably have burnt contacts where the handle and/or wands and/or power head connect. When you push, the contacts are pressed together; when you pull, they are separated and the motor loses power. The only solution is to replace the connector parts.

No vacumn action


Is the roller turning, if not you may need a new belt and/or brush roll. Did you check the inlet by the brush roll?

Bissell Healthy Home Vacumn


On the Healthy Homes Vac, did you check the switch for the vac, there are 2 on the handle, and the one could be open. Check the wiring at the motor, could even be the motor itself. If at the motor there is a thermostat, it could be bad, but comes with the motor.
