Euro-Pro has become famous for its Shark brand of vacuum cleaners, known for their power, versatility and innovative features. If your vacuum is failing to start, there may be a problem with one of its components or its power connection. Before throwing in the towel and buying a new vacuum cleaner, perform these quick repairs and troubleshooting steps to power up your machine.
Plug another small appliance into the outlet to test whether the power source is the culprit, and check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the blown fuse, and try turning your vacuum cleaner on again. If the circuit continues to trip, make sure you don't have too many devices plugged into the same outlet. Check other vacuum parts such as the suction motor if the appliance still doesn't turn on.
Check for splits, frayed wires or splices in the power cord that may be preventing the electricity from reaching the vacuum, paying special attention to the plug area and the connection between the cord and the vacuum. For quick vacuum repair help, bind the damaged area with electrical tape before replacing the cord.
Many vacuum cleaner models are designed not to turn on if the dust bag or canister is full to prevent strain on the motor. Empty the dust container before trying to turn the vacuum on again.
