remove beater bar from head then try it, if it is jammed or seized then the hand unit will see it as a short circuit if it can't turn.
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

difficult to answer this one, i could only find the cause if i had the unit in front of me.
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

You'll need to test the output from the machine with a meter and that the pole is conducting it. Could be a faulty machine or pole. Could be a faulty battery too not having enough juice to power the machine and the head.

Like Ryevac says, that one would need to be on the desk to be checked to diagnose.
