Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Heater/fan issues I have a Honeywell - Year Round Fan with 1500W Heater that shuts off within five minutes if the fan is not running too. I don't have the oners manual and can't find one online. I have read several reviews that say the same thing. The heat does do much good when the fan above it is blowing cold air. Any ideas?


Answers :

There is a safety switch which will shut the heater element off if the fan doesn't run. If the fan doesn't circulate air, the element would overheat and could possibly start a fire, so the switch will shut the element down. I'm not familiar with this heater, but I would check to make sure the fan is operating and also check for any filters that may be plugged and restricting air flow. If anything interferes with the air passing through the heater, the overheat switch will shut down the element. That's the best I can do from here. Good luck.

It will work-about 1 in 50 times of trying. when i put in a file and press MDR button it makes a whirring sound and the screen will say any one of several things e.g.no disc or corrupt file.If the data file is put in before machine is switched on-i then get YAMAHA MDF 2 and nothing happens when i press the mdf button.

This is crazy, as I've installed about a hundred ceiling fans in my day, but......what is the function of the 3rd pull chain on the Hampton Bay I just installed? It isn't the directional control as the fan has the traditional switch for this. The only thing I can figure is it's a means to control the fan and light with one pull chain. The generic instruction book doesn't address it. Thanks for your help!

Hello, On the 24 of June 2010 I purchased an Oregon Scientific Solar weather Station with indoor humidity gadget in Budapest Hungary. I opened it and tried to put it in function only 10 days ago,at the end of November,because I had another one(not exactly the same),which I had had for several years and I wanted to change. I live in Israel. After I read the instructions I did everything I had read,but the outdoor temperature doesn't show off and the clock isn't correct either. What should

The one of the controllers for the electric blanket keeps flashing an "e". The other controller is fine. We switched controllers and the same thing happened. We have unplugged the blanket for several minutes and turned off the controller for several minutes. It always goes back to displaying the "e". It is a warmspun blanket and I cannot find any information on the company so that I can contact them to see about the 5 year warranty.

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.

Power nozzle of my S3670 does not work (vacuum itself does work), the headlight bulb in the nozzle is broken.
