How old is your Vacuum?

Did it fail while it was turned ON?

Or just wouldn't turn on one day?

Also does it get a lot of use?

Thank you

Hi, thanks for response.
The vacum is about 10 years old but it doesn't get used very frequently. Maybe twice a month.
The last time I used it everything was normal. No strange sound or burning smell. It hasn't been thrown either. I was surprised when I tried to turn it on and it didn't works at all. For a moment I thought a connection was louse but no. It does nothing at all. Completely dead.
:(

Hi thanks, ***** ***** usually the switch or the thermal cut out. Both kind of go hand in hand so I would replace both.

But if this was well cared for the cord could be the trouble as well please inspect it visually.

If you have a meter for some testing I will help you narrow this to the exact problem.

Otherwise your best option is to contact a local Vacuum cleaner repair shop for this diagnosis and repair.

Please let me knwo how you want to proceed?

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.

There is NO cost to rate Kindly;-)

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a nice day!
