Question about Bosch Cyclone Jet Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Vacuum won't turn on

While I was vacuuming the motor suddenly went out, with the light remaining on, so when I turn the on power now the light goes on, but not the motor. It had been working perfectly fine so far. I've had it less than a year. I've emptied the dirt container and checked the filter for any excess dust. Can it over-heat? I tried waiting a few minutes and trying it again, and it will turn on, but only for a few seconds. Now what? I really don't want to have to take in for repairs. Any help is much appreciated.

Vacuum cleaner repair manuals seem rare and difficult to obtain. The instruction booklet does not contain dismantling and repair details because to do so would make them responsible for encouraging incompetent people to electrocute themselves.

Vacuum cleaners are generally fairly intuitive to dismantle and the circuits fairly simple. The switches are sometimes found to be faulty but it would be wise to assume nothing. I once scrapped a cleaner assuming the motor was defective in the absence of other faults but when I had already removed everything but the motor, when I finally lifted out the motor I found a (faulty) bimetal thermal breaker...

When the power head is turned on it goes from green light to red light and stops. The belt is fine and there is no obstructions in the brush to stop it from turning.

this will happen only when the brush or motor does not turn the right speed
make sure to pull the end caps off the brush and clean any hairs or fibers from it
the motor you can try and turn it by hand with out the belt on and see how free it is

If it was just a broken belt you would still hear the motor running. most likely its in your cord or switch. check the main cord, connections to the switch, and also the motor supply cord that goes from the handle to the vacuum head.

The vacuum just al of a sudden didn't turn on

Sounds like the motor may have overheated. There is a motor protect fuse which trips when the motor gets too hot. Wait for the vacuum to cool down then try again. Otherwise you'll need to check your power lead as there may be a break.

I was vacuuming the stairs, and all of a sudden the light went out and the motor stopped. Is it possible to overheat it, or blow a fuse? Thanks, Brigham

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum. It sounds to me that when the lights go out and it stops working that the motor is bad that you would have to replace the motor. It is still cheaper to replace the motor than to purchase a new vacuum. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
