Hi The band snapped the other day on my Vax Swift Turbo upright hoover and i got a new band from a Hoover repair centre. (Im assuming the bloke sold me the correct band). Was tight to go on. And it seemed ok. However, after switching on the band snapped immediately. Kinda burnt as well (at the point it snapped). Any ideas as to what the problem is here? The hoover is roughly 2 years old and used around 3 times per week. thanks Mike

My 400 series Discovery Roomba will no longer charge. It shows a green "charged" light, but when I hit clean, all lights/vacuum, etc just go out and it stops. Irobot says that the entire unit needs to be replaced, but it has to have something to do with the charging mechanism. Any Ideas? I've tried the system reset, and removing/replacing the battery. No effect. The robot doesn't give me the "uh-oh" beeps to be charged. It just stops and goes dead.

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses just as it fully closes and then the lights start to blink again. I checked for obstructions and tried to reset the limits of travel per the manual, it still does the same thing. Any ideas on what to try next?

This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due ... Vacuums

Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

We have a series 90S, 2.5 gallon Shop Vac. We used it for the first time to try and **** up water in the basement. Each time we turned it on, it would shut down after collecting less than 1" of water. We had to remove and squeeze out the foam sleeve each time, before it would work again (nowhere near 2.5 gallons!). Any ideas? Is the plastic sleeve that can move up and down inside, the float (poorest manual I've ever seen!)? Should there be a ball float that we're missing? Thanks for any s

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet - HELP!!!! We're read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.

First things first. It's only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected und ... Vacuums

Good evening, I have a Xio Z1010 electrolux vaacum cleaner and I hope you'll be able to give me some advice. The vacuum cannot be started. Last time it started for a few seconds and stopped suddenly. Something similar happened long time ago but that was due to overheating. Once cooled down in few hours it would start again. It is not the case now after 24 hours. Could you give me any idea what could be the reason? Your help would be much appreciated. Adorian

I just bought a shop vac to **** up the winter slop in the garage. the first time I used it, it worked perfectly but the 2nd and 3rd times I used it, it spits water from the exhaust. Why? It doesn't seem to have a plug/clog and I have the foam sleeve plus the circular paper filter on it, as per directions. Help!

My iRobot Roomba 560 starts spinning sporadically during the cleaning, and after over 3 minutes it complete stops and beeps 9 times. It is necessary to turn it on until it decides to work properly, and keep waiting for the next time the same failure will occur. I tried to reset it, and I have all the dust removed including from the bumper and sensors.

It's the bumper. Blow it out with compressed air and clean the cliff sensors. If you still get the 9-beep error, call support. ... iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum
