Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Passat 2000 W Reg Had the rear brakes and disks changed then a month later had a front tyre replaced and as I drove off something went tinkle tinkle on the road (like someone had left a spanner). Week later the ABS light and the brake light come on with the usual STOP Brake Fail Service Manual message. Had brakes checked but they could find no fault. I've tried the ABS under controlled conditions and it works. What could the problem be?? I've been running the car under these conditions and no pr


Answers :

The ABS module has a history of wearing out on VWs. Nothing wrong with the brakes themselves, but the ABS module would need to be replaced to stop the lights coming on... but the problem is a new ABS module can be very expensive for a new one (~$900) or you can sometimes get a rebuilt one for a couple of hundred dollars.

Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.

I just received a Sharper Image SI724 Hybrid GP air purifier and it will not turn on.

My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes. When I first turn it on, the brush rotates for 3 to 5 seconds, then once I start moving the vacuum, it stops and that's when the lights start flashing. I've checked the filters, they are dry and installed correctly. What could be the problem?

The motor just went out on my 2 year old vacuum with light usage (hardwood floors in a very small house.) The Sears repairpeople are estimating ~ $130 to fix (this includes parts & labor). I'm wondering if it's worth investing $130 into something i've spent $350 on only 2 years ago. Shouldn't these machines last longer ? Is there something I could do to get them repair free as it seems the motor must have been faulty to only have lasted 2 years. Thoughts ?

Hi! I'm interested in purchasing a G3 model ; however , the seller says that the machine was working perfectly and then when switching power on a while later , the machine was " dead " .
