Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Roomba that is 6 years old has started spinning in
\015 Roomba that is 6 years old has started repeatedly backing up a couple of inches then spinning in a circle so that it does not go anywhere. It is almost like it is in small box. There is no forward movement like there is always something in front of it. This happens even when the roomba is in the middle of an open floor. Is it a problem with the senors or program or what???\015
Sounds like it is stuck in the "spot clean" mode. Are you familiar with this command and sure that you are not pressing it? If so, there is not much else left to do as iRobot doesn't give much repair help. All they do is offer an upgrade to a more expensive robot.

Took Roomba apart to clean and now the pick up brushes start and stop during cleaning. The vaccum is clean but will not constantly spin. Runs great but pick up brushes start and stop. Is there a number for Roomba? Warranty? This one is less than one year old.

I heard that a class action lawsuit against Oreck Vacuum is being started because of all the problems customers are having with their vacuums. Does anyone know about this? My Oreck is only a couple of years old and keeps burning up belts. I took it in after only one week of usage when I started to notice white smoke coming out of it and the smell of burning rubber. I feel like I got the old run-around, when the service tech told me he couldn't find anything wrong (but replaced the burned up belt

Brush assembly will no longer spin on carpet however the suction from the system is still good. Unit is only 5 years old.
Probably a seized beater roller (the bearings wear out). Just order the new part and replace it and you'll be one your way again. And of course maybe a belt. ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum
Hello, My Electrolux Renaissance is about 12 years old. It worked great for years, but now it keeps turning itself off...about every 15 seconds or so. The bag was just changed recently, too. Is there an easy, (and cheap) fix or should I start shopping for a new one?? Thanks!
Odds are you have an obstruction somewhere. Check all of the hoses and the power head to ensure that there is nothing blocking your airflow. \015\012\015\012Also note that if it keeps popping the front bag door open, that's usually indica ... Electrolux Vacuums
Faithful Sebo X1 upright, about 12 years old, stopped working today. I replaced old with new dust bag, checked all dust paths were clear, checked main brush was clear/clean, and drive spindle rotated OK with fingers. When power switched on, the two red indicators briefly flash on then off, but nothing more happens, motor does not start - even with power reaching machine. Tried removing all consumables, refitting and turning on a few times to reset, no joy. Removed base cover, both belts were i
At 12 years, this vacuum has had a good long life. I suspect the motor is shot, but it could be due to faulty wiring and connections. A bad switch, break in the power cord, and worn brushes in the motor are other causes.\015\012I recommend ta ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Hi, my Roomba robot is spinning around. I cleaned it by disassembling wheels, gear compartment, etc.. Cliff sensors cleaned with compressed air. Briefly ran fine, but started to spin again. It's not under waranty anymore. Any suggestion please! Thanks, Olga
Usually this occurs when the front wheel is jammed or can't move freely, please verify if this is the case or not on your Roomba. Also, what model number of Roomba do you have? it should be located on the bottom of the unit on a label. ... iRobot Roomba 540 Vacuum
Burning when the vacuum was started today it didn't sound like it should and then started to smell like the motor was burning. this is less than 1 year old!!!!

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up. Is three years its normal lifetime or do I have the change the filters, instead of cleaning them? Thanks.
I know bissell vacuums are very cheap but they should last more than 3 years. there should be two parts to the dirt cup. remove the dirt cup and above it there should be a round plastic part. unscrew it and check that filter. ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean. I washed the gore filter (output from motor to clean the exhaust air) as per instructions, then let to dry. It was very clogged but now very clean. The vacuum clearner still cuts out often.

5 yr. old Miele s514 Turbo plus's power nozzle brush seems to disengage temporarily, stopping the spin. Then it seems to re-seat itself after a few seconds, then starts spinning OK. I keep the nozzle brush very clean, so there is no hair or yucky stuff to cause it to jam. Please help.

The belt may not be broken but after 3 years the belt will have stretched and it will not turn the brush. You should change the belt every year. Changing the belt is an inexpensive fix. I would try that first and if it doesn't do the trick I would ta ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister vacum cleaner. It is nine years old and for the past few weeks it has started shutting off for no apparent reason.The symbol for bag change lights up and it cuts off, but even after I have put a new bag in, it still does the same thing. Do you have any suggestions? There is a little button or switch that the top of the bag fits on. Do you think it could be the problem?
Your machine is probably clogged, look through the wands, look in the bottom attachment, to see if there is anything stuck there. You can also drop a marble through the hose itself to see if anything is stuck there as well. To unclog the hose try hol ... Electrolux Harmony Canister Vacuum - EL6985 Vacuum
I have a Craftman 5hp snowthrower model 53688501 that will not start. It will fire with gas down sparkplug hole, but runs only untill that gas is burned up. Fuel is present at carb, but I noticed that there are two brass fittings on each side of the carb for vacume lines or something, and they have no lines connected to them. Did I lose the lines that should be connected? Or do I have some other problem. The unit is 4 years old and has the Briggs and Stratton eng model 9A413-0202-E1
This sounds like the carburetor needs disassembled and cleaned. This happens over time and the tiny orifices plug up. Usually from letting gas set in them for extended periods of time and it gums up. If you are not familiar with them, I would take ... Craftsman Vacuums
