Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Battery does not seem to fit machine
\015 A couple of years ago, I purchased a Eureka Boss Model 93B. I just took it out of the box and found that the Vacuum is a 93B, but everything else is model 96, including the instruction manual. I cannot get the battery that was included to fit into the body of the machine. When I put the battery into the charger, the light remains red, even after 48 hours. Any suggestions?\015
The light only shows that its plugged in, it wont shut off when its fully charged

The hand held dyson does not appear to charge. does the battery come away from the unit as I can't seem to release it? Would there be any point in buying a new battery as I don't know if this is the problem. The red light stays lit all the time it is on charge and when I take it off the machine does not respond at all.
The battery is located at the bottom of the handle. To release it, press and hold down the button on top of the battery case (it has 3 ridges on it). That releases a catch and you can then slide the battery out to the rear. This can be quite ha ... Dyson DC16 Root 6 Bagless Handheld Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a model 1315 sears sewing machine and have a new walking foot that doesn't seem to fit or allow me to stitch.......is there a fix? The walking foot is a kenmore brand and we thought it would fit all kenmores?
I am sure that you realize that it has to be for a low shank machine and that you have to take off the presser foot and use the screw to clamp the walking foot on, and the fingers must be on the take up lever screw. Be sure to check the shank size. ... Vacuums
Does the philips active carbon filter FC 8033 fit the model of vacuum cleaner I own (HR 8903/A)? My catalog says I should replace with HR 6969 but was sold the FC 8033 filter. My machine seems to be overheating and I wonder if it has anything to do with the new filter.

I have a new Toyota RS2000 that I was bought as a gift. I received it without a manual which I have now obtained, but now I have gone to use it the power lead does not seem to fit into the machine. Is it possible I was supplied the wrong lead or am I doing something wrong?
It is quite possible that you were supplied the wrong lead, seeing that the manual was missing, the contents of the package might well have been tampered with. Contact the person who gave you the machine and ask them to either check wit ... Vacuums
My scooba seems to work fine but no longer makes the beeping noise. Several weeks ago the beep was sounding very strange almost like a battery was dying. Now it's not making any noise at all. Is this the beginning of more problems or can the machine function just fine without the beeps? If not then how can I fix it?
Your speaker went out. It could be totally isolated. You're not going to be able to determine what's wrong with your Scooba if something does happen, though, because without those beep codes, there's no way for the robot to communicate with you. ... iRobot 5900 Scooba Robotic Wet/Dry Vacuum
My Roomba Discovery 4210 seems to be dead. Specifically, with or without a battery, and whether on the charging station or plugged directly into the charging unit, I see no lights on the display whatsoever. This unit has a history of killing batteries, but now seems like it is completely dead. I understand that the batteries themselves contain fuses; is there some way to bypass the battery (for now) to verify whether the unit itself is completely dead? I should also note that this is the sec

Greetings - my Dyson DC41 animal vacuum seems to be having problems with the ball - the right side of the ball if you were to be standing behind the machine seems like it's tightening as it rolls forward, as it tightens its harder to push the machine forward. Any thoughts, any fix it ideas? Thank you.
Noise My Dyson DC08 is making a loud, rough, vibration/noise that seems to be coming from the from the rotating brush housing. I replaced the old belt which was several years old and slipping. When I run the motor with the new belt removed the machine sounds normal. The bearings on the rotating brush seem to be running smoothly when turned by hand both when out of the brush holder and when installed in the machine. I can't find anything rubbing on the belt or rotating brush. I applied a bit o

I bought an old Juki Baby Lock 418 at a garage sale. It will sew for 3 or 4 inches and then seems to be off timing and locks up. I have no instruction manual. Is there a manual available for this old machine? I would prefer a downloadable manual because I already have money invested in the machine which doesn't seem to work. It was suppose to have been gone over at a repair shop before I purchased it and was told that it worked. .
Assembly I am trying to assemble the eureka smart boss. The problem that I am having is that the handle is not completely fitting into the cleaner body. I can slide the handle into the handle supports but it doesn't seem to click together. There is a space at the top; it doesn't seem to be able to fit as closely as the bottom. Thanks, Lisa
It may not just slide into place, you may have to knocj it into place, then put the screws in to secure it. ... Vacuums
My model F5906-900 --- problem is the brushes have stoped working... I pulled the brush assembly out by holding the two tabs, and all seems clean and the brush assembly rotates easly... onced the brush assembly is removed. What I did notice is the female driver slot (found in the main assembly unit) that drives the brushes seems stuck..Is that normal when the machine is not hooked up to power? How can I get the brushed going??? it is a good machine, but the brush options is important too it's ab

The water tank on my bissell proheat 2x is not keeping the clean and dirty water separate. I;ve checked the container and there doesn't seem to have anything wrong with it. Also when I switch the machine on you can see the "washing" action, after a few minutes this seems to stop - there is water and forumula in the machine. Only had it a year!

I have a Howard Miller Westminster Chime Mantle Clock. It has always worked fine. It stopped working and my husband took the battery out to change it and when the new battery is in it will not work. It is Model 613-=103 movt 354201J dial 272142J. The part you put the battery in almost looks too big for one double A but I can't see how two would fit. I am afraid the battery is just not in right. Can you help me with how many batteries go in this clock or if it is one what the problem could be.
I have cleaned the filters on my dust buster. The vacuum works for a minute then the battery seems to wear out and the power weakens until it stops. How do I replace the battery on this vacuum? Do I need just one 9.6V battery? What screws do I loosen to insert the battery? I can't find my instruction booklet. Tank you for your help.

Roomba Discovery My Roomba Discovery seems to work fine, mechanically, but it no longer seems to collect any dust. (The collection bin remains empty after the Roomba has circulated around the floor for quite a while). The brush has been replaced and spins normally. Does anyone have an idea why this machine's vacuum function no longer seems to work? I would appreciate any feedback. Jeremy
Did you replace the filter? when you remove the dust bin there is a small filter that needs to be cleaned, or replaced. You can buy a maintenance kit that replaces the brushes and filters as well, its good to replace them all regularly ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
I have a new scoba (irobot) the battery is charged the tanks were fillied and every time i hit the power button and then clean the machines "check the tank" light came on. i have done all the proper instruction checks an i have done all the trouble shooting section. the machine will only work (and that is for 5 minutes drying its head) when i hit power and the clean button twice. so obviously the machine is somewhat working

After charging overnight, Roomba only runs about 25 minutes before shutting down with a red light.At this point the battery measures 15.13 volts ( about 1.26 volts per cell ) My hobby experience is that a ni/cad or ni/mh battery nominal charged voltage is about 1.2 volts per cell, and that the recommended end point voltage should be about 1.0 volts per cell. Seems like the battery is ok, butsome kind of voltage regulator is shutting things down prematurely. Is this happening, and , if so, how ca

I have a Husqvarna Viking Designer sewing machine. The fuse blew in the machine and I am having trouble finding a replacement fuse. It is a T3.5/250v glass fuse. Please let me know where to find one. I have searched the internet high and low and can't find one. Radio Shack has a 3.0amp 250v slow blow fuse whick seems to be the right dimensions. Willl that work. Otherwise, I am not sure what to do and can't afford to take the machine to a repair show. Thank you.
That fuse will work no problem. There is no harm in trying it.The machine probably requires about 2 amps or less under normal operation. Being a 3.0 amp slow blow fuse, it will withstand short bursts of extra current when your machine get ... Vacuums

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old
