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.

Unit stoped working and found filter was full of dust and fins on cooler was also dust cloged.I cleaned both and still won't start up


hi.
if the cooling fins blocked, it is quite possible that the unit has overheated and tripped the thermal fuse in the motor.
thermal fuse are built in to the motor to prevent overheating. some thermal fuses blow and the entire motor needs to be replaced, while others will reset themselves when the motor cools down.
as the fuse is in the centre of the motor they cannot be replaced and can take quite a few hours to cool down and reset themselves.
the only thing you can do is to leave the vacuum overnight and try it the following day to see if the thermal fuse has reset itself.
if the unit still does not work then you may have to get the motor replaced.

hope this helps

Motor will not run appears to be switch or motor


It is quite easy to check this out only if you can just have a multimeter with you.,
Take the panel of the vacuum removed too access the switch and the motor. use the meter to test for continuity of the wire to the switch and then to the motor if there is switching action on the main switch, the the power must come to the motor. however if the motor is not showing a reading , check if it is the brush type motor, if so clean the brush and commutator .or else the motor may need a replacement.

I have a 9068G and when I plug into the electrical outlet and press the "on" lever, I get nothing. The machine actually quit one time while I was vacuuming. Is there a fuse problem or a reset button? ...


There is no reset button or fuse, yo have a clog / reduced air flow, causing the motor to over heat and turn off. First change the bag, then remove the wands and carpet tool from the vacuum. See if the machine turns on. If not the main motor will need to be replaced. If it turns on and you have suction, check the wands or carpet tool for a clog.

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

Hoover SteamVac quit working.


there is no reset button to this machine. in some cases if the machine stops or makes a weird noise or a smell like electrical, most likely it's the motor that went out or you could just have a switch that went out. if you didn't have any of these things happen, then take it to your local vac shop to get an est. done to see if would be worthe replacing the broken things or would it be better to buy another machine. hope this help's

Power nozzle don't work


I don't know which model you have or how old it is, but most models have a cord on the hose that plugs into a receptacle on the main machine. Sometimes they can look like they're plugged in when in fact they're just barely hanging there. You could also check the cord at the powerhead. Because the cord flexes with the motion of vacuuming, the cords can break inside. Wiggle the cord while the machine is running and if the cord is defective, the powerhead is start and stop. On some models, there is a switch on the hose handle to turn the nozzle off and on, and these are prone to failure. Also, there should be a reset on the top right hand side of the nozzle, but if this kicked out, it indicates a motor or electrical problem and should be addressed by a service person. If your powerhead has this reset, it's possible that the reset is sticking. Push it down a couple of times and see if that helps.

Filterqueen cuts out when warm


You should check the disc filter that is located under the paper cone support. The support is secured with a single screw in the middle at the bottom. This filter is commonly overlooked and when it gets dirty will restrict airflow and cause the motor to overheat. Most motors have a Hi-Limit switch incorporated into the motor to protect against overheating. You should also check the top filter (which is probably foam) and replace if it is clogged.
