Vacuum won't turn on
The vacuum simply won't turn on, no matter what. Before you proceed to take your vacuum apart, try these basic tweaks. Hopefully, one of them should work!
Is the vacuum plugged in?
Plugs have a habit of coming off the socket often. Check to see if your vacuum is still plugged into the wall socket.
Check the socket
Plug in another device that you know is working to check if the socket is okay.
Vacuum turns on but there is no suction
Visible obstruction in the suction hole
Take a peek into the suction hole at the bottom to see if it is blocked. If yes, remove the cause of obstruction and your vacuum should start working again.
The dust cup is full
A full dust cup will result in loss of suction. Head over to this guide to swap the dust cup for a new one.
The extension pole doesn't extend
You are trying to get some serious cleaning done but your vacuum doesn't want you to succeed.
The extension pole slides back and forth in a groove that runs through the vacuum's body. If the metal projections on the pole are not resting in the groove, the pole will not extend. Follow this guide to open the vacuum cleaner and fix this issue.
The power button won't engage
The vacuum is plugged into a good socket but pushing the power button doesn't get the vacuum running.
This is most likely due to a misalignment of the power button with the inner switch.
Check for small bits of debris around the switch
While cleaning, debris like threads or large pieces of dirt might get into the groove of the power button. Dig around with a soft cloth or your fingers to remove any debris.
The switch is misaligned
To fix this, you will have to open up your vacuum. Follow this guide for a quick, easy procedure to solve this problem.
