Hi ............I don't understand what you mean by "snapped up a clothesline type rope"........or......"On the circuit board, there was no red switch showing"...........and when you switched back on each breaker you have to switch it ALL the way to the OFF position and then all the way back to the you have GFI outlets in the kitchen..........bathroom...........or any other utility room?........and you reside in the United States?

Sorry for the delay, don't text very well. Yes there are GFI plugs in the bathroom and the kitchen.
The rope stopped the vac and blue out the lights and wall plugs near by.

We were vacuuming in a closet. The Vac sucked up a rope and stalled the Vac and tripped the circuit breaker. There are no GFI plugs inoperative and none on the circuit that is out.
