The cord on my vacuum hasn't been working properly, I plugged into the socket and it caught fire, I unplugged it and it stopped. Is it the electrical or the vacuum cord?


Assuming you mean that either the cord or the vacuum caught fire, the problem is one of those. If you mean there was a fire in the electrical outlet, the problem is in the electrical system. Either the outlet or the breaker that didn't trip when it should have.
