I have a hoover 3000 i have not used in awhile, and since I removed a large rug, I would like to use it again on my slate floor. HOWEVER, I cannot get it to pick up ANY water in the water recovery unit......it is dry, dry, dry.

If it is the flat belt that broke, that is the pump belt, the pump can't work without it. To replace the belts, turn the unit over, remove the red holder, has one screw, pull it out, then the brush roll will come loose. You can replace the belts th ... Bissell Powersteamer 1694 Upright Vacuum

Passat 2000 W Reg Had the rear brakes and disks changed then a month later had a front tyre replaced and as I drove off something went tinkle tinkle on the road (like someone had left a spanner). Week later the ABS light and the brake light come on with the usual STOP Brake Fail Service Manual message. Had brakes checked but they could find no fault. I've tried the ABS under controlled conditions and it works. What could the problem be?? I've been running the car under these conditions and no pr

After removing the filter, I cannot get to battery on the Dirt Devil Kone M0213, there are two horizontal screws. Removing them does not help getting to the battery, no way to remove the insert where the battery is located.We have two of these, however they did not come with a manual for dis-assembly.

I have a GEelectric percolator from about 1955. It looks like a pot belly stove, or an egg standing upright! It works fine, except the little red light that normally comes on when the brewing is completed no longer lights. I assume it is the bulb......but how do I get to it? It is located near the coffee brew setting mild-to-strong sliding lever.

I have owned my kirby sentria for 2.5 years and have had no problems until now. The vacuum still works but I cannot lower it all the way down or the light will turn off and it will start to smell like something is burning inside. I use it on the 2nd or 3rd setting with no problem. I have changed the belt and cleaned all the hair and strings that were on the roller but it still has this problem.

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta

You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems

Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums

Our Optimus CD-8100 disc changer is temperamental. Sometimes it will play, but not sure just how to program it. When we want it to play for a program in our chapel, it cannot be depended on. Seems like we have to play around with it to get it to play the disc and song we wish. If we had a manual to tell us just what to do should be helpful. The manual was not with the player when we were given it as a gift. Also if there is a remote, that did not come with it either. Would appreciate any hel

My Fantom Thunder upright has a blockage that sounds like it is directly above the dirt bin in the "head". I cannot access it from inside the bin chamber by going up the nozzle with a claw parts retriever. (This is the older model where the cyclone nozzle doesn't come off.) The wand, hose, rear inspection port, and front brush intake are all clear. How do I get the top of the vac off above the dirt bin? I don't see any screws or slots.

I have a Napoleon Pellet stove insert Model NPI40. When the fire burn rate is extremely low it seems to operate normally. However, when I turn the heat up even a little I eventually get a high pitched noise that seems to be coming from the convection blower. Changing the speed of the blower has no effect on the noise level. I cleaned the blower but did not remove it. There was very little dust on it. Cleaning had no effect on the volum or pitch of the noise.

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!!!
