I have been asked to look at a hoover for a friend which is no longer working. Apparently it just turned off and then wouldnt turn back on again. I have had a good look to see if there are any blockages etc. and i can't see anything that would stop the machine functioning. I checked to see if the brush bar would still power up which it did. I then checked to see if the power switch had failed by swapping the switch which powers the brush bar (which i knew was working), with the power switch. The machine still wouldn't power up. All the electrical cabling appears to be in good working order so i can't see why it wouldn't power up unless the motor has failed. Are we likely to be looking at a replacement motor here?
Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
