Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My miele titan is not turning on when plugged in. i think it might be some sort of clog? but the electric head is working... help!

Answers :

Wow!, that's not typical of a Miele, especially a new model like the Titan which has been on the market for less than 2 years. If I read this correctly, your power nozzle (electric head) is working, but the main suction motor is not. Thta's usually a sign that the carbon brushes in your suction motor are stuck or too short. Again, not a common problem with Miele. A clog could cause your machine to run hot from reduced airflow and then shut down until it cools, but it would shut the whole machine down, not just the suction motor.
\015\012 Is your power dial, (located just forward of the main switch and cord retractor buttons) set to minimum? If so, you just might not be getting enough suction. If, after turning the dial to maximum, you still get no suction, then you should definitely take it back to the dealer you bought it from. You have a 7 year motor warranty and a 1 year warranty on all non-wearing components. If you bought your vacuum on the internet then you can go to www.mieleusa.com and search for a local dealer. There is a 'Dealer Locator' link on the left side menu.

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine. I've tried soaking it in hot water and soaking it with cleaning solutions. They have not worked. If I blow into the connection piece, no air goes through. That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.

I had the same issue with the rectangular mop and corrected it by disassembling the tube from the rectangular piece. There are two screws that will need to be removed in order to get access to the connector. Once the connector is removed from the rec ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

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!!!

I have an older Wega 2 group espresso machine. Looks like a date of 1992 on the group head, but not sure. This has no model name that I can find. Anyway, when I turn it on I get all lights flashing after it heats up 5 minutes or so. I do get nice steam from the wands. I drained teh tank and found a little scale, but not much. I took apart the group heads and cleaned them thinking it may be a clog there, but that doesn't seem to have worked. Also fwiw the water level float is not visible and whe

I have a Wertheim 4808 Barrel vacuum cleaner that has suddenly stopped working. I believe that there is a problem with the electrical cord connection inside. I have tried unsuccessfully to open the compartment that leads to that area. One side unscrewed with a phillips head screwdriver but the other side seems to have a different type of fixing screw that I am unable to undo. It is awkward to get at and in a deep slot and the head of the fixing screw? is not visible.

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????
