Why won’t my vacuum turn on?
I've pushed the 'ON' button on the vacuum , but it wont turn on. What can i do?
First, make sure the vacuum is plugged in. If the vacuum is plugged in and the switch is pushed on, but it's not turning on then try to reset your circuit breaker or reset the motor thermostat. The steps to reset the motor thermostat can be found in the troubleshooting guide.
The collection canister has a switch that engages when it locks in that can wear and not function, try removing the waste canister/collection canister and insert it carefully to attempt to engage the switch
This just happened to me and the issue is the power switch. If I short the switch leads with a screwdriver (after disassembly), the vacuum runs. Now where can I get a new switch...
It's likely the thermal overload which is that 1/4" back thing with two legs coming out and a short one in the middle.
Solder a link from the middle of it to the black wire and you will bypass it.
Keep the vacuum clear and you should have no problems.
You will have no thermal overload for the motor so the next time it may burn the motor but it beats throwing it out
