Having problems with your Vacuums ?

\015 Motor stopped running...i have heard this could be a thermal fuse ...where would this be and does shop vac quiet series 5.0 have one?\015
I have the same shop vac with the same problem. I have disassembled it and can tell you the motor core windings go to two posts of what appear to be some sort of fuse, and that's where the open circuit is in mine. (I bypassed it to test the motor, and it started up fine). Now I'm trying to figure out whether that fuse can be replaced.

I have a kenmore vacuum cleaner model # 116.23612. When the hose is attached to the canister it runs, but if you remove the head to just use the hose the unit stops working. Is the motor dead or is there some type of reset or fuse. Could you please tell me how to test this. If so could you please send me instructions on how to replace the motor. Thank you in advance for your help, Tony

Roomba My Scheduler started making a "grinding" noise every now and then until one day it just started grinding and then stopped (I could restart the unit, however it repeated the grinding and stopping).

This is not an electrolux problem, but I am hoping one of the experts can answer the question. I have a Sears air compressor that suddenly stopped working.

I received a new compressor for my birthday so I decided to tear into the old one to do some diagnosis. After getting into the case where I could see the motor/pump, I have discovered the prob
