Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Why does the power head come on and off when it wants to
It sounds like there is a short somewhere. Shorts can be tricky to locate though, you may need to call a central vacuum company.
The belt that drives the brush is stretched out and will not turn the beater brush properly. You need to put a new belt on it.

For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!

Hoover bagless cannister 3765 - belt on power head slips off spindle. bought new belts - same problem. is this a design problem or can it be fixed?
