switch won't turn on vaccum
I was using the vacuum on my rug and it just died and won't come back on when I push down the red lever., My vacuum is a Eureka air speed bagless.
If it has a UK fused plug the first and easiest thing to do is to check the fuse.
Then you should try and ascertain whether it's an electrical or a mechanical fault. Does the red lever have exactly the same feel to it as it always did? If not, then there's probably a bit of broken plastic beneath the lever which actuates the actual switch.
Did the motor sound as if it was labouring when it was last working? If so (or even if not) there may be a thermal fuse somewhere inside, most likely attached to the motor, to prevent it burning out if it overheats. If you can take it apart it should be possible to follow the wiring through from the plug, through the switch, to the motor and hence back to the plug. With a test meter it's possible to check for any breaks in the circuit.
But it could be a problem with the carbon brushes in the motor - see https://therestartproject.org/wiki/Elect...

Just replace the switch with another similar yourself or in nearest service. This is very easy procedure.
According to the complaint list this is very common problem for all Eureka Vacuums: https://www.applianceproblem.com/eureka/...
