Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Panasonic MC-V5258 Upright has been turning off after about 5 minutes of use for several months. It has been taken into the shop where it was bought at least one time and evidently it wasn't fixed. I think the warranty is out. I paid $438.00 for it! Linda in San Antonio Texas

Answers :

Lind a, I don't recall if this unit has an overheat sensor. Try it again and if it shuts off see if the vac feels very hot, but do not touch the switch, leave it in the on position, to cool down. When a vac overheats it will generally restart on its own in about 20 minutes if it has a heat sensor on the motor.
If your vac restarts, you either have a defective sensor or a blockage in the hose or filter area causing the motor to overheat.
If it does not restart your problem is electrical, sticking carbon brush on motor, bad cord, etc.

I purchased the Shark Steam Mop less than a year ago and I have used it about 8 times and now it is not working. It will not steam. The light on the front is on and you can hear it tryng but it will not get hot and steam the water like it should. I think it needs to be replaced with a Warranty Item for free. It is still under warranty.

The problem is that the cleaner is heavy to use and does not pull itself forward as it should. It has been back to the supplier 3 times but they have not fixed the problem. The LED's on the front flicker and I think it may be a problem with the sensor. If you have any info. on how the sensor works and where it is located it would be useful as well as any other suggestions to fix the problem please.

If it heavy then do some muscle work and body building ... Vacuums

Hoover Model U8185-900 beater bar part keeps smoking and burning up We've replaced the part Hoover PCB Display Bridge U8172 three times and the vac beater bar works for about a minute then the part starts to smoke and burns out again. I've taken everything apart but cannot locate anything that would cause this part to burn up. I think if I did not disconnet immediately, he vac would catch my rug on fire. Help? I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest

I'm not sure why this is happening. Perhaps if you would contact Hoover and explain the problem to them such that it appears that there is a safety issue with their product, they might be more cooperative. If that fails, I have had luck writing let ... Hoover U8185-900 Upright Vacuum

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that. I think this happened once before and maybe they replaced a circuit board(?). We took it to a local repairman this time and he says he can fix it temporarily with a new cartridge, but that he won't promise it won't happen again soon.....

The hose has fuseable link inside, generally a 3-7 amp. It is at the wall end underneath the hose cuff. Easy to replace as it crimps in line. If you have a meter you can also test the detachable hose to wall cord for continuity, then check the hose t ... Hayden Industries SuperVac 6000 Central System Vacuum

My Dyson Root 6 made a loud banging sound, and now its motor emits a strong burning smell every time it's switched on. It runs for a second or two, making a lot of noise, and then stops. (Just bought a new battery for it, too - what a drag...) It's off warranty, and Dyson wants almost as much to fix it as a new one would cost. Is my Root 6 e-waste, or is there anything that can be done for it?

I just purchased a westclox tech model 70014 yesterday. I read the instructions and set the time. About an hour later, the time reverted back two hours. I read the instructions again and repeated setting the correct time. I assumed it was working. However, I woke up by myself today at 5:30am, but the clock read 1:14. Is there any way I can fix this or is it a manufacturing defect?

Fast Forward time set feature no longer works. (With this feature, pressing and holding time set and up arrow buttons will rapidly advance time through hours and minutes.) Unit is out of warranty and I need to know the cost of repair.

Lost Suction This is my second hoover steamvac and i am having the same problem with my new one as i did with the old one that i tossed out. I have used it about 12 times and it worked great the first 6 times... Now i'll empty a full tank of water and only half will get sucked back up. I have tried taking it apart and cleaning and also the rubber seal had some gaps so i sealed those thinking that it was leaking air from there...can anyone help? I am so close to chucking this one and buying somet

Usually when there is no suction, one cause is the lid to the recovery tank is not on all of the way in the back. Also if you have that foam filter on the underneath side of the recovery tank lid, it needs to have a 1/4 in or so gap from the top of ... Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum

I have an euro-pro steam cleaner model # sc505 that is about 2 years old. It has only been used a limited number of times, about 3 or 4 times. It now has a tightly sealed safety cap on it and it will not release allowing me to add water to the steamer to use it now. Any tips on fixing it?

Dog hair gets caught all the time in the belt drive spool, is there a fix for this other than having to pull it out all the time by hand? I have replaced the belt and the brush but this hasnt solved the problem and the belt moves so slowly and I get the loud whining/grinding noise too.

My Hoover SteamVac has been doing a wonderful job but in two instances, after emptying the dirty water and reattaching the reservoir, the machine has lost suction. The first time I was able to make it work again after taking it apart and putting it back together about 10 times. I don't know what I did that fixed it but as long as it worked again, I was happy. But it's happened again and I can't get it to vacuum. I can see that it isn't clogged. Can you please help me????

After two years, my Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop, Model S3101, no longer ejects steam. I have used tap water. I think the line is clogged with mineral deposits. The light is on when plugged in, and the unit heats up. I even put in vinegar for about an hour to break up the calcium deposits, but it did not correct the problem. How do I fix it, or, where can I take it locally to be fixed (Orange County, CA)?

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.
