Nortek Control FAQ

My vacuum won’t turn on.

Check to make sure the electrical outlet that the unit is plugged into is working properly.
Try pressing and holding the reset button on the front of the vacuum canister for seven seconds and then release it.

Check your circuit breaker to see if your circuit breaker has been tripped.

If your vacuum still won’t turn on, you may need to contact a local dealer. To find a dealer in your area, please visit our website at
