Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Won't start I have a miele, model # s2481 red vacuum. It will not start. When the button is pressed it feels normal, but nothing happens, it will not start. Is this a problem my handy husband can tackle?


Answers :

It is most likely your cord winder. They are a little tricky to fix yourself. A repair shop will probably charge about $50. To fix it. The contacts where the cord winder plugs into the motor need to be cleaned and adjusted. Just don't let your repairman tell you that you need a new cord winder.

We just purchased a Miele upright s7000. I vacuumed for 5 minutes (literally) and it completely shut down. Waited the suggested 30 minutes for cool down, but nothing happens. Waited another 30 minutes and still nothing. My husband checked for clogs according to the manual but still nothing at all. Is it just a dud?

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions

Hello, could you help please. I have a Bissel ProHeat 9400-M. The water remains in the bladder when the machine is on, in other words nothing happens and I cannot clean with it. Inside the tank the small flap is in the open position. I have always used your products although I did run the Bissell over an area that had been cleaned with another product. Could that have caused the problem by blocking it somewhere? I have cleaned everything and cannot see a blockage. Thank you for your help.

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

I have a Brookstone Wet/Dry handheld vacuum. When I toggle the switch on or off, nothing happens. If I leave it on the charger and do this, nothing happens (so I don't think it's the battery). It seems like it's a few years old, but I can't be sure as I got it for free from someone's yard sale leftovers. They didn't have an option for "Brookstone" in the product selection, so I just chose the first one.

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

Henry hoover Hi all, I bought a spares/ repairs Henry on ebay having been told there was no cable rewind and believing that since I had a spare one in the shed it would be an easy fix. However, poor Henry had his cable replaced to find when plugged in, he tries to start but nothing happens. The motor turns once and just cuts out. If you turn it on and off again it happens again. One whir and turn of the motor, then nothing. It blew the fuses out in the kitchen first time too, so could it be a re

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

Lately we've been having plumbing problems to where our washing machine floods up our bath tub and toilet. And it happens while we have the washing machine on of course. Another problem is that whenever we are taking a shower our tub starts to clog up and water starts pouring out from the bottom of our toilet. We had a plumber come by to root out our pipes just last week and it was fine for about 3 days. And now the problem is back and driving me crazy. WHAT IS WRONG AND HOW CAN I FIX IT??

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck.

I have a Roomba 560 (it's still in warranty !!) and, after my summer vacation, it has a problem. When I'm charging Roomba, the orange light blinks (and this is normal!) but this orange blinking continues forever.... the light doesn't change to green. If I detach Roomba from the charger, the light become green and it works normally until the light changes to red and I have to charge it again.

Again, I have a Bissel Model 3760-4. The same problem as everyone else. The beater bar will not turn. Took apart, nothing. Took to vacuum repair shop and they said it is not getting power to the motor to the beater bar. Seems like a fair number of folks are having this same issue. You would think Bissell would come up with a fix, if nothing else to save their reputation. Thanks Diane

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it
