Hi I have an Electrolux Envirosteamer and it has stopped steaming. I have made sure the water cap is on tight and also taken the head apart (where the hose finishes up and the attachments fit on) and the hose is intact there. I have no steam and wonder if I have a valve problem? if so can anyone tell me if it's worth trying to order the part and fix myself. I'm fairly handy! Thanks Sue

My Shark just stopped cold in the middle of steaming the floor...got one good pass of the floor, and after water refill, bam. Stops..no steam, no "on" indicator light on body. No other problem except it died!!


It sounds like the heater core has popped a fuse. This model has a built in fuse to the heater and is hard wired in there. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this. This machine is made to basically throw a way in a couple of years. ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

Hello, I have an Electrolux vacuum. In desperation, I vacuumed up some water and my machine stopped. I am hesitant to take the machine to a repair place for fear that if it is a simple repair they will not be honest. Can anyone give me advice on whether this is a problem that requires a new motor or major repair? Thank you!


Although it's never to be recommended, it is sometimes possible to vacuum up a little water without doing significant damage. However, the fact that your machine then stopped suggests that the electrics got wet. That may or may not have caused expens ... Vacuums

On my Eureka Model 1759A (from mid-1980s), the plastic catch that holds the two parts of the metal body together has broken. I would like to replace the part of the catch that attaches to the top (the part with the lip on it), but I can't find the part online ... or even a drawing. Where can I get this part ? ? ?

I have a Royal 7910 extractor and even though I vacuum before cleaning the carpet, by black cocker spaniel's hair gets pulled into the plastic pick-up attachment and I cannot find an easy way to clean it out. I have tried taking the screws out to separate the halves, but it seems as though they might be glues together. I have run water from a sink sprayer though the openings with some degree of success, but it still is pretty cruddy. I have tried snaking pipe smokers pipe cleaners up the pick

I loved my Shark Steam Pocket Mop, but it suddenly stopped producing steam through the mop heads.

I have a kenmore vacuum cleaner model # 116.23612. When the hose is attached to the canister it runs, but if you remove the head to just use the hose the unit stops working. Is the motor dead or is there some type of reset or fuse. Could you please tell me how to test this. If so could you please send me instructions on how to replace the motor.

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add. Problem is the brush still wont spin and now the belt seems loose - I think I put it all back together correctly but wondering if there is a trick to this?


Without the model number, I can't look it up, but this has a 1 years warranty on it, maybe take it to a warranty shop. Just take proof of purchase, model and serial numbers. ... Vacuums

While using my mop yesterday, it stopped letting steam come out. Tonight I plugged it up again and you could hear it trying to steam. I push the button in to release the square frame and it pushed out a burst of steam and pushed the head off. Put it back together and it still will not let steam out. No matter how much water is in it.

How do i get my bissell to stop leaking water?


The rubber gasket on the bottom of the 2-in-1 tank is probably lodged in the base of the unit. It should be connected to the nozzle on the bottom of the 2-in-1 tank. You can pull it out of the base and reattach it to the tank. This should stop it ... Bissell 2X Proheat 9200 rug cleaner

The Lower body of the Bissell QuickSteamer, water pours out from the body. Solution: I took apart the machine and there is a spring loaded valve with a rubber washer at the bottom. Think of the letter T upside down with the rubber washer on it. The washer stretches over the bottom and the spring creates a leakproof plug and won't allow water to pass till the button on the handle is pressed. This old washer came partially off and allowed water to leak. I purchased from the plumbing dept. a mi

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -
