Having problems with your Vacuums ?
I have a raynor flight star garage opener. Had a lighting strike 4 days ago. All power is good. The opener even has a little green light on the switch that is attached to it. However the opener is not responding. Is there a way to reset on the motor by taking off the housing? I don't see any reset button on the out side of the housing.thnx
You could always try unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. If that doesn't work the logic board is probably fried and unfortunately there is no replacement available for it any longer. You would need to buy a new opener. I'd recommend Liftmaster.

I have a Liftmaster garage door opener and the garage door faces south. Normally the opener works great except at certain times on a sunny day.The sunlight is not directly hitting one of the sensors but the door will comedown as far as half way and then it will go back up and the lights will flash. If I go inside and use the button I can hold it down until the door is fully closed. However, sure is a pain to have to take the car out, go back into the garage, shut the door and then leave the h

We thougth it was the switch so we ordered the part and it is still doing the same thing. Is there a reset button somewhere inside? The only reset button I see is on the attachment which is working.

The thermal motor protector on sears model 116.35912 Kenmore vacuum won't reset. The manual says to wait 30 minutes and the thermal protector will reset on it's own.

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together
My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

I have just purchased two (2) Electrolux Nimble vacuum cleaners. Not one, but both, straight out of the box, the beater bars will not run. It turns on, select carpet, and lower the handle, the red light to check beater bar/or filter lights up. You can reset the light by unplugging the unit, then plugging it back in, but with same results. Now the kicker, if you take out the handle, select carpet, lower the body by the carry handle, it will run and operate correctly, however, as soon as you r
I have a Royal 7910 extractor and even though I vacuum before cleaning the carpet, by black cocker spaniel's hair gets pulled into the plastic pick-up attachment and I cannot find an easy way to clean it out.

Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again. Seen canister was full, emptied it and cyclone was quite plugged up so poked out the dirt. Had dog hairs in it as well as some ashes I had just vacuumed. Plugged unit in again and pressed switch. Will not come on. Tried another outlet. Is there a reset button somewhere or could the ashes have seized the motor. What can I try besides taking it to a repair sho

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse
