Hi

Royzee :

Are you still having a problem with this?

Royzee :

Do you have a multi meter to test components?

Royzee :

Thanks, Rob

JACUSTOMER-3yv3vwnu- :

Yes still having the problem. Would not be a mahor issue however I'm having some work done on the house and its badly in need of a hoover.

JACUSTOMER-3yv3vwnu- :

no im afraid i do not ahve a multi meter

Royzee :

hi

Royzee :

was it working exactly as before, before it went dead on you?

JACUSTOMER-3yv3vwnu- :

yes, exactly as before

Royzee :

OK, its a very simple machine, so the first thing you should try, is tying a big knot in the cable about 18 inches from the end. Cut off the plug and 10 inches of the cable, refit a new plug and see if that does it. It is very common for the cable to break at either end

Royzee :

Without a meter there isnt really much more you can do

Royzee :

there is only a switch a small circuit board and the motor in there

Royzee :

To test any of these you do need a meter

Royzee :
