Having problems with your Vacuums ?

How do I figure out which model I have? I do not have any manuals for my roomba. Currently when I turn it on, it will make a continuous non-increasing circle, then shut itself off.

HI There,
\015\012
\015\012In order to find out which model Roomba you have, turn the machine upside down and look for a sticker that contains the serial and model number.
\015\012
\015\012There are basically 2 different series of Roomba's, the newer 500 series, and the older 4000 series Discovery series. These models usually had multiple buttons on the top, unlike the newer 500 series which have just one.
\015\012
\015\012The older series models included a white, red, green, and yellow colored machines, where as the newer 500 series models have a more sleek design, usually with just a single button in the center. The newer 500 series have colors of black, and silver with different combinations of the two.

It's making a very loud noise when running. I have a Bissell Quicksteamer series 2080. When I was using it yesterday it was making a light squealing noise then it turned into a loud racket. I shut it off and and cleaned the brush (lots of dog hair on it) But the racket continued.

SEBO vacuum cleaner makes a strange noise and shuts itself off after a few minutes. Suction not working when tube is attached, but works with hand-held portion only. Indicator light saying bag is full/clogged is on, but we've cleaned out the bag, cut away any fur/strings that were wrapped on the turning portion, and cleaned out the refuse valve. Not sure what else to do. Thanks!

ShopVac pump The waterhose connection is up high. The only way to get the water up to the level of the hose is to continually hold down the on button due to the automatic shut off after it fills to a certain level. On the bottom of the filter there is a hole. I am thinking there should be a small hose of some sort to put into that hole that would then lead up to the level of the water hose. Concept makes sense to me. But in the meantime, good old duct tape seems to have done the trick. Not exact

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile

Rainbow Vacuum, about 5 yrs old (bought new, no issues prior) - my 6yr old tipped it on it's side while water was in basin. Now when I turn the power on, it makes a very loud sound in the motor and you can feel the vibration on the floor. The suction still works and basin still catches dirt - the noise is just so loud and I'm not sure if I should continue use or how to fix -?


Although a wet/dry vacuum, it cannot tolerate water in the motor. Water will cause the motor to short out, which will cause the motor to act/sound like yours does now, if it continues working at all.\015\012To prevent additional problems, the ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

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

Roomba Schedular I have a Roomba Scheduler and it has worked great until recently. Suddenly it quit working. When it is charging the power light goes from red to green as it should, showing it is ready to use. When we turn it on to use, it will only go on for a few seconds then it shuts off like it is out of power. It is like it isn't really charged. Is there something I can try to make it work?


Let it charge for a full 24, or even 48 hours, regardless of the green light. If it still dies you probably need a new battery.. or worse. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

I have a Kenmore Progressive upright model 216-37100800. It is only around 1.5 years old. My wife said that one day after she plugged it and turned it on, it whirred up but then shut off. Since then it will not start. I have noticed that right after I plug it in, if I try to turn it on, the first yellow light in the series of dirt sensor lights turns on then shuts off. After that the light will not light up on pressing the power button, unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. I have seen o

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?


As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
