Question about Sharp Twin Energy EC-T2840 Bagged Upright Vacuum
When I plug in and turn on the vacuum, I have no suction and no sound (the light comes on so I know it is getting power). I have checked the belt and it is fine. Do I need to take it in for service or is there something I can do myself?
No sound - sounds th like the motor is frozen. this type of vac pulls the air threw the bag so by time i it gets to the motor the air is clean, unlike older vacs. it is possiable as well that a wire to the motor has become disconected. (unlikely) has the vac gotten wet at all or have you vacumed damp areas? it would be the only thing i can think of to lock up the motor. another good test and maybe the first is to take of the belt the brush might be bad and stoping the motor from spinning.

Unfortunately, this probably means that your motor is burned out, since the headlight is on the same circuit as the motor.
You can take it in for service, but replacement of a motor in a twin energy will probably be more money than it's worth, and that's assuming that the motor is available.
It's still worth taking in though, most places will give you free estimates, and repair techs are the best people to ask about new vacuums if yours is unsalvageable.
Best of luck,
