Question about Hoover Vacuums
Chances are your cord was damaged inside the insulation and over time it finally opened. That would cause the cac to not operate any more. If you have access to or one of your friends has a multimeter then you can check the wiring by using that meter in the OHM mode... and placing one lead on each of the two plug terminals at the end of your cord ( not plugged into power of course ) and put the vac switch on.. you should not see an open circuit and read something in the range of 10's of ohms to 100's of ohms ...depending on what path it takes.. ( meaning that with the switch on.. you should be measuring resistance through the motor windings and/or light bulb ..if it has one... That would be a quick test of your wiring integrity... Hope that helps..
