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..

Was hoovering when it cut out. Now it wont turn on at all. Lisa.


Possibly broken cord. Its common for the cable to break a wire internally where the cable goes into the vacuum or near the plug as these points are the most strained when the machine is used. You will have to cut back the cable and reconnect into the machine and if you have a "moulded on " plug it will need to be cut off and a replacement plug fitted. If you are not sure, someone with a bit of electrical experience may be able to assist you. make sure its unplugged before you go playing with cables...

Hi, I have the Hoover d14194 bagless pet vacuum..when I switched it on it worked but kept cutting out, I emptied it and cleaned the filters but now it won't even switch on.is there something I can


You could check the motor brushes, if they are worn and check for loose wire connections.
Another possibility is that there may be a break in the lead, plug it in and shake the lead, if it starts and stops you have probably found your problem with a broken lead.

My Henry Hoover cut out and will not work. Emptied bag and replaced fuse but no success.


If no burning or smelling, maybe nothing to do with motor, and if caused by the safety cut-out, it will need about an hour to cool down, and then check filter, bag, and drop coin through hose, pipes and the floor tool, to check for blockages and to stop it running hot. Damaged cable, worn carbon brushes, broken electrical rewind electrical contacts or even the printed circuit board (later models) are the most likely causes.

I was using the Dyson, turned off to empty tank, will not turn on again, I have checked outlet it is ok. Does it have some kind of safety if it gets to hot.Thanks


hi.
there is a thermal fuse built into the motor of all dysons that will cut the power if the motor gets too hot.
when the motor cools down again, the fuse will normally reset itself.

try the hoover again after a few hours and see if it works again.
also change the fuse in the plug to check that that has not blown

My hoover keeps tripping the house fuse everytime i plug it in


The fuse in the plug must have blown or you have a broken wire along the cord length somewhere. Is anything wet?

Hoover c1810 bagged upright - power keeps cutting out - is there a reset button?


there might be a reset button on there but its not meant for continuous use. we need to figure out the problem why the power cuts out. what condition is the cord in? cuts nicks. also check the prongs on the plug. if not that could be a bad switch but it sounds like a loose connection

Just stopped mid hoovering and now won't switch on!


It is probably a thermal cut-off which is caused by a blockage. The machine will turn itself off before it overheats if it is a thermal cut-off. Once it has cooled down, you will be able to turn it back on again (usually 30 mins - 1 hour).

If the machine doesn't turn on at all anymore, you may need to replace the power switch. Call the Dyson helpline, they will do a blockage troubleshoot and if it's not that, they will tell you where you can find an authorized Dyson repair dealer in your area.

Hetty hoover not working. It was working ok until I opened it up to search the bag for a missing jigsaw piece and I put it all back and I hoovered the mess on the floor, then switched off and switched on...


Know cut off switch, its just not getting power ? 2 things its ether at the wall plug or in side the unit. I have never found a fuse in side them , so it may be just a lose wire did you try other plugs in the house . good luck DFD

One of the pins on the plug on my hoover have snapped off, the top one. so i cut it off & tried to use a normal plug but it has blew the electrics. Is there any way round this? Thanks


If you connected all the wires the correct way to the plug then you could have a short in the wiring in the hoover. Get an engineer to check it out.
