Question about Philips Vacuums

1 Answer

Does the trivac 1100 have a fuse? My machine has suddenly stopped.I have checked the fuses in the plugs and also made sure that power is at the wall socket. I can see what loks like a fuse holder in the top of the machine near to the on/off switch but it is very tight so I want to be sure that it is a fuse before unscewing it. Thank you Jim

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

SOURCE: 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.

Will not turn on


This is often caused by overheating and overheating is often caused by blocked filters. Wash the filters and let them dry naturally (do not put back in the machine until they are fully dry). The machine may work once it has been allowed to cool down properly. Also check the fuse in the machine's plug.

Shredder does not power on


Good day!!!!


please try to check the plug if it is OK..

Then look for the fuse if busted...

If the fuse is busted look at the fuse if only disconnect the wire inside so that you can determine the cause of blowing of fuse..if the fuse is dark or have color black inside your machine have a short circuit..if not got fluctuate high current in split second (that is normal)..just replaced the fuse with the same type and ratings..

If the fuse always blows after power ON your machine need further repair it have short circuit..

Thanks for using fixya...

Our upright Dyson has just stopped working. No


There are four possibilities:
1) If in a country that has a fused plug, the fuse in the plug (unlikely). 2) The switch (unlikely). 3) A break inside the cable that you cannot see (quite likely). 3) The motor is shot and needs replacing (very likely).

Plug gets hot when using vacuum.Could it be the motor? My husband thinks it's because it is drawing to much power. That the vacuum is blocked somewhere.


Do you mean the plug in the wall gets hot if so this should never happen has the fuse in the plug been changed?
if not the vacum can not be pulling to much power as the fuse will blow to stop that
Yes the vacuum may be blocked some where but should be easy to find out where as these models come apart with ease

My dyson dc14 suddenly stopped working while vacuuming. What should I do?


Check mains fuse, if OK, suspect mains cable broken where it enters the machine. Wriggle the cable with the machine switched on.
If it's done a lot of work, the motor brushes could be worn out.

Vax v-060p not powering up


Hi,
All houshold electrical appliances which are constantly moved about eventually stop working due to fatigue. The most likely cause of your problem is the power cord from the wall outlet.
Replace the power cord then check again to see if it turns on.
Best wishes,
