Hi, be sure you are using the right amperage fuse in it. Check any exposed wires on it they may have got skinned up, causing a short and blowing this fuse. You say it gets hot when she gives it full power, so its blowing when its drawing the most amps under this high load. Check all of the connections at the batterys to make sure all connections are good and tight, this is very important on any thing that is electric. Good Luck,

How do you get to the fuse in the dc28?


The 3-pin mains plug will have a plastic fuse holder which can be levered open with a small screwdriver. Look on the pin side of the plug. There will also be small writing on the plug to tell you which size of fuse is fitted to the plug. Replace with the same size of fuse. It is important to note that the fuse in the mains plug is only likely to blow if there is an electrical issue inside the machine, so replacing the fuse may just result in the fuse blowing again. If this happens then the vacuum needs proper checking and repair. DO NOT try using a bigger fuse, as you may cause more damage to the vacuum, or cable overheating or risk of electric shock.

Dyson DC 25 wont turn on


Why does your daughter think that? While a whole house surge protector is something I can't recommend enough, it's highly unlikely that the average power surge would take out a vacuum. The usual suspects are not plugged in all the way, the filter has never been cleaned, the cord has a tweak, break or is exposed somewhere or the vacuum's fuse blew (if it was a power surge, that's where you'd want to look.

Your owner's manual should have instructions for changing the fuse, if not, take it to a certified Dyson service store and have them check the fuse for you. :)

My vacuum keeps blowing the fuse. It's about 8 months old and is running good. I looked over it, all wires and plugs are good.


A fuse blows when the current in it exceeds rated capacity. Obviously, it is happening all the time as different fuses keep going south. That means that the motor of your "running good" vacuum is using excessive current.
It is only 8 months old and still under warranty.

Only other thing you can check is the rating of the fuse and the rating of the vacuum. If it is near or same as fuse then that will cause a problem.

My Miele Hepa 5281 stopped working for no apparent reason. No burning smell etc. I've replaced the fuse on the plug but it's still not working. Any suggestions on what could be wrong a


Could be a break in the mains lead. Usually where it enters the machine and gets stressed. Some motors have a thermal cut out or thermal fuse fitted to them. If the motor overheats it breaks the circuit. Some of them reset when they cool down, some are a one shot device, when it blows it has to be replaced. Could also be faulty brushes on the motor not making proper contact because the are sticking or worn.

Buy a pressure pack of 'dust off' open the machine and blow out any lint. Check oil for level and clecleanliness.

When i plug in my oreck steam it mop, it keeps blowing the fuse


Make sure no other appliance is running at the same time. Some other appliance on the same house line is causing the fuse to overload. Example: If we have the space heater on in the bedroom and my wife tries to use her hair dryer then the fuse blows as they are both on the same circuit.

Hi i have a henry vacuum which my daughter used on wood/coal ash and now does not work.


OK... You are suggesting that Henry doesn't work because of what your daughter did with him. This may or may not be fair on your daughter! Depending on the degree of filtration in your Henry, he should be able to cope with ash (as long as it wasn't hot) without difficulty. Provided that your Henry had an undamaged cloth or paper bag, and that his "top-hat" cloth filter is intact, I think it unlikely that the ash is the cause of the problem. Many people use their Henry without a bag - this is a false economy, as dust always always finds its way in to the motor and, ultimately, that's terminal. Look at the underside of Henry's motor compartment (the black part) where the air goes in, and at the exhaust where the air blows out - if it's obvious that he's been sucking or blowing dust, you probably need to replace him. However, if bag and filter are intact, you probably need to look elsewhere for the source of the problem, and the first place to look is the electric flex (particularly for damage where it enters the plug). I hope this helps - but if not, please post a comment again and we'll look further. Good luck!

No power coming into machine


Hi All
Up Date on shark no steam no light.
The fuse that controls the steam is a thermal fuse, 192c ,10 am 250 volt.
Now that may sound strange to some one who dose not know fuses, but Radio Shack carries them and there $3 bucks!
If there is a handy person you know, they should have no problem replacing the fuse. I just fixed ours in about 30 min. but I work on electronics. If the Shark gets to hot this fuse will blow to prevent overload or fire so don't put bigger fuse in it!!
FYI you have to take All the screw out and open up the unit fuse is burried look for yellow clear film (thats the color mine was), the film is wrapping the fuse. Good luck
