This could be anything from a bad wall socket to a broken wire maybe a burned out switch or a fuse you will have to get a diagram on it and find out if it has a power fuse sorry hope this helps

SOURCE: Vacuum will not work

Not sounding good. Possibly the motor. Own another variant of the s4210 myself it's a good machine but may not be economically viable to repair. Check around to see who will do the cheapest/or free-est quote for you.

Just before it shut down were you pulling on the cord? For it to shut down like that it almost sounds like the electric cord has a break in it-probably at the plug

While I'm having a different problem, the problem you guys are experiencing can easily be fixed by cleaning the two internal filters. My vacuum did the same thing, just stopped running mid-stream. Remove the main filter cup. Look inside the cavity of the vacuum and you'll see a grey bar at the bottom of the cavity, pull this up and you'll find the first of two washable filters. Just rinse it under warm water squeezing as you rinse until the water runs clear. The roll the filter in a few paper towels or towel and unroll, reroll until completely dry - should only take a few minutes. Then, look in the same cavity except up top there is another filter which seems to be hidden. The back wall of the inside cavity will guide you to these filters as well. You will be amazed by the difference cleaning these will make in the suction power of your vacuum. Also, if you remove the belt cover and clean out the hose in this area it will improve suction as well. Hope this helps. Now, if I could just get the darn belt back on mine. First belt smoked and popped. Bought replacement belt, smoked and popped within seconds... HELP!!!

I was in the middle of vacuuming and all of a sudden the vacuum just stopped working. I looked, thought the bag was full so I changed it out and nothing it will not turn back on again.

If the bag was really full it could have restricted the airflow and caused it to get too hot and shut off. If it does not have a mechanical reset button it will come back on after it cools down. The filters may need replaced too.

My electrolux vacuum, model 4870 just stopped while I was vacuuming. Now it will not go on. It was working just fine a few minutes ago, then just stopped. Any ideas

it may be over heating.Check to make sure your hose and power nozzle are not plugged..Simply turning machine on without the hos then putting hose on while running and see if the motor sounds different,ie.winding up higher.....if this doesn't help try changing the bag

Beater bar turns but not when the vacuum head is against the floor.

1) test the power cord for open
2) see inside fuse or reset button and reset if there are
3) power switch defective or some wire loose fix it
4) connector inside loose tight
5) c.breaker from your home tripped, reset.
6) if not work, the motor is defective, brush, winding repair.
God bless you

My vacuum stopped working all of a sudden in the middle of using it. does it have a fuse that may have blown or is it gone for good?

Many of the bagless vacuums have thermal overloads that will reset in 30 minutes.
Wait and clean all three filters first.

Depending on which model you have it could be a belt, brushroll and/or motor problem. Some models have hidden tabs that must be released after you have removed the screws to gain access to the brushroll.

Suddenly stopped running in the middle of vacuuming a room. Tried another outlet and still no power.

You have to go to the electrical panel that serves your home or apartment and locate the fuse that is blown [ if there are fuses, replace the blown one with a new one of the same amperage] or the circuit breaker which has kicked part way off. With a circuit breaker you have to turn it all the way off and then back on in order to reset it.

Rug beater does not work, vacuum does I just was vacuuming the rug and it suddenly stopped, beater will not turn on.

The beater bar will turn itself off if something became lodged in the brushbar area - it turns itself off so that it doesn't cause any further damage. If this is the case, recline the machine, turn it on and press the gray button next to the red power button. This is the brushbar's ON/OFF switch. If that doesn't solve the problem, call the Dyson helpline for further assistance.
