According to your problem first check your electric outlet, check also the power cord and the electric input section of the machine. May the on/off switch burnt out. Check and replace the switch. If you can't find out any problem there. Then you must check the circuit or wiring. Anything burned there. According to you there was a temperament problem in switch, so most probably replacement of switch will solve your problem.

Where does the power light clip on to on the kirby legend 2 1984

The light clips into the top and mid point of that black on off switch.
It is the biggest pain to see those 2 entry terminals on the back of that switch and the only way is to cut those white tie wraps that go around the light wires to the pot metal frame to get just the extra amount you will need.

A good light source and a sharp pair of needle nose pliers will be needed to push the 2 light plugs into that main black switch.

I used to dread that when replacing those entire switches until getting used to it.

Another note that if you get the motor wires reversed when plugging them into that reverses the motor and will blow instead of suck.

Hope this helps!

No power but lights flash

Is there a reset switch. Most vacuums have one some where near the bottom brush, to protect the vacuum from overload. If the vacuum tripped, the vacuum will not work until you've pressed the reset switch. If you can't find one, pls check manual.

My dyson dc25 pipe has lost something stuck in the pipe?

We had the exact same issue. Turns out my wife had inadvertantly sucked up a magnet that was the same size ans the tube. Hold the tube up to a light source. If you cannot see any light, there is something stuck in it. To dislodge the item, stretch out a wire hanger and run it through the tube. It should lislodge the item. Dyson's are great but are very tempermental!

I have an electolux [ lux classic] vacuum cleaner, and there is no power to it. I think it is a loose wire, as it was tempermental before. I can't find a way to get into it to see if it is a wire

Does the green power light located on the top of the vac come on with the cord plugged in the outlet ? If so your switch could be bad. If not, you could have a bad connection or a broken wire. Caution ! If you do get into the vac, you can cause more damage to the vac. Is the vac more than five years old. If not, your vac is still under waranty and you should get it fixed for free. Take it back to you Aerus/Electrolux shop. You can find out if the unit is still under waranty by calling the customer service with the serial number. They can tell you. 1-800-243-9078.
If you still want to get into the vac (which I do not recommend) let me know and I will tell you.

Motor just stopped.

Some of the Sharp's have a fuse in by the switch. Could be blown fuse, bad switch or bad cord. The worst would be an open in the motor.
