We have a commercial Simplity vacuum series 6 and we are not getting any power. We tried different plugs, changed bag, etc. but still no power. Is there a reset button anywhere? Any other suggestions? Thank you for any assistance!

Check the reset switch on the back of the machine toward the bottom. Maybe next to a silver sticker.

If you need any help contact me.

SOURCE: oreck 4080 the bag fell off the vacuum,

If the bag doesnt have a bag holder then the bags just push onto the black connector - there is usually a hook at the top of the oval connector where the bag once pushed on, sits over the oval dust channel feeder and locks into place. Once the Oreck is switched on, the bag in theory should stick to the oval hole.

SOURCE: Simplicity 7 Series Vacuum. Suddenly stopped.

There is a thermal reset button on your vaccum. It is on the rear of the unit, just below the attachments and next to the sticker with the serial numer etc on it. The vacuum is designed to turn itself of if too much heat gets built up to prevent it from "burning up."

Sentry 3 series vacuum smelled hot, and now will not power up, changed bag (not over full)


There is a reset button on the back of the vacuum that shuts the power off if the motor gets too hot. Try pushing the little white button on the back. If it comes back on that means that there is probably a clog somewhere or the bag was too full.

Where do I find the bags for this old c1403 one?


Were these generic bags or Hoove brand? Also, I believe that some bags have a rubber seal on the inside of the hole to attach. I hope this helps. Type A is the correct one.

The bag was full, it has been changed - still no power when plugged in


It sounds like you have carpet fibers and lint that are stuck in the motor carbon brushes. That is common on this machine. You will have to take the motor out and have it thoroughly blown out will an air compressor.

No power for the vacuum


Hi! I work at repairing Sebos, so can certainly help.  Most probably the cable is damaged, and the two most likely places for that to happen are where it enters the plug and where it enters the rewind mechanism. Before you even think about dismantling the machine to get at that end of things, though, you need to be 100% sure that power is reaching the machine.
I know you've tried a different socket, and that you've changed the fuse (by which I assume you mean the plug-top fuse, and therefore that you're probably in the UK like I am). Good first steps. Checking the integrity of the wire in the cable is a different matter, though. There are inexpensive devices you can buy to check for voltage through normal insulation, but I don't know how deep in to this you want to get...  you've got to be pretty keen (and competent) to think of changing the cable yourself. 
If you'd like to post a response, indicating how far you want to go yourself, I can help you get in to the machine if necessary.

My Electrolux upright worked fine


Are you using the proper bag? There's a kill/reset switch that needs to be pushed down by the rim of the bag before the unit will run.

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily


Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.
