Question about Philips Vacuums
An attached photo would be better to explain this
I don't feel its the fuse
normally the fuse is inside the vacuum.
the problem you facing could be your power cable broken somewhere inside, if not this then something inside the vacuum
could be the motor itself

SOURCE: NO POWER
The problem is almost certainly a fatigue break in the flex. These usually happen where the flex enters the handle through the rubber sleeve near the on off switch. You will need to cut about four inches off the wire and reconnect it to the switch. To do this, you need to remove the on/off button as you have suggested. If you press the green button down, you will see a tiny slot at the side of the button on the side nearest the handle of the cleaner. You will need to slip a small screwdriver with a blade about 3-4 inches long down the slot, in order to disengage the little hook at the bottom of the button moulding that clips it into the body of the cleaner. This is a real fiddle and you will probably mark the casing in the attempt. I have done it dozens of times and I still end up shaving off the ridges I have made in the plastic so the button doesn't stick when I reassemble it! Once you have done this, you can draw the buttup upwards and take it out. This will reveal a philips screw holding the switch button in place. Unscrew and remove the switch, then cut and re-make the connections after removing the 4 inches of flex. You will need to replace the spade connectors on the wire, or cut, solder and insulate the re-joined wires before re-assembly. If you are handy with a solder iron or have some small spade connectors to use, go for it, but be sure you are competent to make this repair. Usual rules for dumb people apply her folks. UNPLUG from the mains before you start tinkering around!

SOURCE: Central Vac will not turn on.
These problems are nearly exclusively caused by a bad circut board and replacing it is the fix. Bad boards can cause many different effects so its nearly impossible to be sure. The 9v signal wire is not enough to short out an entire unit so it is unlikely the hose. If it is a direct connect system and you are pulling power from the 110 somehow that would cause main unit problems but that is unlikely at best. Sounds like a failed board to me.
Best of Luck

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.
