Your Whirlpool vacuum cleaner is one of the prime tools to help you keep your home clean and comfortable. If you have problems with the vacuum not starting, or if it stops while you're operating, it, check out some of these troubleshooting tips to get it humming along again.
It's all too easy to pull a vacuum's power cord out of the outlet while vacuuming. If your vacuum stops working suddenly, follow the cord back to make sure the appliance is still plugged in. Sometimes the power drain caused by a powerful vacuum can trip a circuit breaker. If your vacuum is plugged in, check for a tripped circuit breaker, and flip the power back on if needed.
A vacuum's power cord can become damaged after many years of use. If your vacuum needs a replacement cord, it's one of the vacuum parts you can pick up at Sears PartsDirect.
If you've confirmed that power is reaching your vacuum cleaner, but it's still not picking up dirt, place your hand at the end of the tube and feel for the suction. If you don't notice any suction, it means the suction motor has stopped rotating the fan that pulls dirt into the appliance's dirt collection chamber. Seek out some vacuum repair help if this occurs, since chances are you need a new suction motor.
