Kenmore 22812 Bagged Canister Vacuum\015 When I turn on my Kenmore 22812 after only a couple of seconds it just shuts off automatically. If I unplug it from the wall, plug it back in and push the power button it starts up immediately but one again shuts off within seconds. Any thoughts?\015
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Check the hoses, the filters, and throughout the vacuum, and clean out any blockages or clogs. Vacuums will likely also have a recommended cooldown time to ensure that the vacuum won`t overheat. You will need to wait for that time before you turn the vacuum back on.
For a cordless miele stick vacuum cleaner, a temperature limiter switch automatically turns off the vacuum cleaner if it gets too hot. (Some models have a temperature warning light.) Overheating may be caused by a blockage in the vacuum, or due to a full dustbag and/or filters.
Occurs when the vacuum pump fails or when both intakes are blocked.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
.Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.
.A reset button is for use if the motor isn’t running, so won’t have anything to do with the suction.
There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth.
The beater bar motor turn-on mechan
Normally when the motor is easily moved back and forth means that it have a proper lubrication,proper alignment and no clogs.
When the motor and the belt is OK the problem could be on electrical wiring and switch.
If found electrical switch burned out you need to replaced it because when the switch is burn the contact of that switch is open even you turn it ON.that’s why the motor is not function because the voltage is not pass through the circuit because of open switch.You need to replaced it.
And check some fuses if any and other burned electrical wire.Replaced it also.

.This is where a vacuum that won’t run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one)
.My educated guess is that it’s either the switch or the power cord. Here are a couple of guides to help with diagnosis and repair…
.Hope this helps!!
. Use caution if you decide to work on this yourself or if you take it to a service center that is not famliar with these models. The circuit board mentioned above is susceptible to damage from static eclectricity discharge. The static you generate from just walking across a carpet could make this board useless. So, if the original problem is not the board you could make the problem worse.
.First, check the bag and afterfilter. If bag is full or pores are clogged, or the afterfilter is dirty, replace them. Try using the vacuum.
.Next, try turning the control knob on top of the vacuum counter-clockwise as far as it will go. Turn on vacuum. If it continues running, try vacuuming a room to see if it continues without problems. If not, disconnect hose and turn on. If your vacuum shuts off immediately, then the CVA needs replaced.
.If it continues running, place the palm of your hand over the intake. If it turns off, the problem could be the CVA, or simply dirty or clogged tubing connected to the CVA.
.If you’re using bags that are made to fit, and/or don’t say Home Solutions on the top, the interior of the canister, including the moter and cordwinder, is probably covered with dust.
.Depending on the model and age of your vacuum, unless “made-to-fit” bags were used, it may still be under warranty. To find out check your owner’s manual or go to http://www.aerusvacuums.com/support/manuals/, find your vacuum model, and check near the back of the manual for length of warranty. This of course depends on the purchase date.
