Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Vacuum cleaner blew the fuse in my house!!

\015 I have an original electrolux 725 vacuum which was great up until a year ago. I had the cord fixed because it had pulled out too far and at the time the guy said something about the ball bearings. I didn't understand at the time that I would have to replace the motor soon. It did blow up a month or so later so I had the guy put in a new motor. It had a 12 month warranty and true to form, at 13 months I decided to use a powerhead for hair in the carpet and the motor blew up and at the same time blew the fuse in my flat. Are the new motors just not as good as the originals (always seems to be the way) since the original worked for 25years without a problem then a new motor lasted just over a year or is there a good quality motor I can have fitted and if so, how much should it cost and where can I get it done? (i live on the gold coast) I love the old 725 but this is a pain!\015

Answers :

Are you sure that the vacuum motor went bad? If it did, then if would just have to be replace again. Doubt that you would find a different motor other then what belongs in there. If you did it would have to the right size to mount right. Some motors will last a long time while others just don't and you never know how long a one will last. Maybe the power head is what caused your present problem.

Vacuum cleaner I am needing to buy a vacuum cleaner - the flooring in our house is mainly oregon pine with loose rugs. I suffer from back problems and find the cylinder vacuums cause a great deal of back strain.

Hi. We have a Riccar N2100 vacuum cleaner, which has served us well for many, many years. I'd like to attempt a repair on this unit, and looking for advice and/or a parts diagram to proceed. The unit makes a groaning sound when shut off. The sound tapers off in pitch as the motor and beater bar come to a stop. The sound only happens when the vacuum cleaner is turned off in the normal upright position. The sound does not happen when the lower unit and main housing are both laying flat. I took

The 10 amp thermal fuse on my Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner has blown. Unfortunately the red ink has worn off exactly where the temperature rating is printed so even with a magnifying glass cannot make out the exact replacement fuse to buy. Can anyone shed any light. I know you can buy the complete thermal fuse and wiring from currys partmaster but with delivery would cost about 20 pounds as opposed to 69 pence for the fuse itself. Thanks Mark Roberts


It appears the fuse is not available separately. Standard retail price for the complete unit is £9.00 including VAT. We can supply at that price plus postage and packing at cost, which would probably be no more than £2.50.  If this i ... Vacuums

Vorwerk VK121 vacuum cleaner - smell of burning from housing enclosing motor. How do I get into the housing to inspect the motor? After tilting the bag sideways, there are two screws holding the housing visible, but there seems to be a thrid fixing inside the point where the handle shaft is attached - is the handle simply clipped in place? Thanks


Yes the handle is clipped in place and should come out when the button in front is pushed. Remove the screws you wrote about. After that the puzzle begins. At the bottom of the vacuum where the head is attached, remove the head by pressing the but ... Vacuums

Believe the fuse is blown in my fantom fm760 vacuum. put the wrong kind of headlight in and when i turned it on it blew the breaker as well. took apart and the fuse is part of the powercord.


Unfortunately Fantom has been out of business since about 2001, so parts are very difficult to obtain. Your best bet would be to try to find the parts online or possibly at a vacuum store, but I would be very doubtful that you will be able to find th ... Vacuums

Hi I’ve got a Panasonic vacuum cleaner MC E468 1600W a few years old now but works well up to recent problem. Not picking up I checked the obvious things and found excessive air being sucked in around the hose housing at the back of the vacuum (as it enters the waste bag) On inspection it appears to me as if there should be some sort of gasket that may have perished and been sucked in, however I can’t identify any such part. Any thoughts on what the problem/solution may be will be appreciate


The hose on the back might be loose - check to see that the hose is not obstructing anything where it screws in at the back - or indeed the screws may be loose themselves; some of the MCE 468 models had an additional ring washer that sits between the ... Panasonic Vacuums

Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin. So we took the housing off and after unclogging a hose running to the hearter, my husband unhooked the hose that goes to the flow indicator, blew in it and it started spinning. Put the deep cleaner back together, tried to use it and nothing. What else can we try? Can't afford to put it in the shop right now. Thanks in advance.


I borrowed my friends bissell to clean my carpet. It's the 7901. He brought it over and told me that it only sprayed out of the attachment hose. He said he couldn't figure out what was wrong.
