Trying to attatch the wires from the light kit to the fan but the blue and white wires from the fan have white caps on them covering the wire. Do these need to be removed in order to attach the wires with the wire nuts? If so, how are these white plastic caps removed?


They're called "wire nuts". Turn them counterclockwise to remove, lay the wires you need to join side by side with the ends of the bared sections even and screw the nut on. lp ... Vacuums

Have a Shark steamer. Tried the vinegar, tried the CLR, tried putting a piece of wire and a skewer into steam hole...no luck. The unit gets hot but no steam. Will try one more round of CLR and let it sit overnight. Other than all that I mentioned...have no idea what to do next. It's a great gadget if it worked!!

I have a Euro-Pro Shark Steam Pocket Mop. I used it twice last year, and then it stopped producing steam. Is there any way that I could easily fix this without dangerous chemicals? Everytime I call the company, I can't get anyone. The unit heats up, but doesn't produce steam. I've tried white vinegar to no avail. I am afried of using clr after reading that the unit blew up on somoone. I am visually impaired.

I have the scunci 1000 steamer- it was sitting for a while and the cap on the top looks like its corroded and i cannot remove it from the steamer - i just bought it a year ago, but i think the salt or vinegar from cleaning it got trapped in the top and i tried everything i could think of to loosen the top so i could pour water into the unit and use it again; otherwise it is in perfect condition, but i tried even pliers and i cannot loosen it and i dont want to break it, but am so frustrated - wh

How do I remove and clean the grinder on my Saeco v'spresso? It grinds and grinds then says the coffee beans are empty when they're not. If I finally get it to finish its cycle no coffee comes out and all the water goes into the overflow tray and/or the grounds container. I am assuming the grinder is completely plugged up and I tried to clear it out from the chute underneath but no luck...

I have a Model 116.35922500 Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner. It makes a loud air noise when using the vacuum. I have disconnected and removed the hose to see if anything is lodged in the hose and it appears clear. It makes the noise when the hose is connected. When I remove it, the noise stops. When I place my hand over the hose, the nose re appears. I sounds as though the noise is coming from the fan or internal parts of the machine.

Hi, I've a Tefal Steam Generator Express Turbo 2910. It won't "steam". The solenoid works when the button is pressed. The pump works. I've cleaned the tank (with white vinegar as recommended on this site!) thoroughly. The water from the steam tank is only "hot" (not scalding as I'd expect it to be). When first switched on and hot enough there is the TINIEST whiff of steam when the button is pressed then nothing more. Do you think this could be the Thermostat Part CS00094126, or can you

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -

I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that. Also it is making a big puddle on the floor, probably because the brushes on the main unit keep spinning when I am trying to use the hand tool which I dont think they are supposed to do? Can a

I loved my Shark Steam Pocket Mop, but it suddenly stopped producing steam through the mop heads. The water is heating and I can see and hear steam coming out of the actually body of the mop, but it will not go through to the head. I have thought of running white vinegar through it. Do you have any suggestions?

DZ9080 IRON IS NOT VERY OLD, BUT HAS HEATING AND STEAMING PROBLEMS. IT MAY BE ALL HEATING RELATED! MY WIFE WILL SOMETIMES JUST LEAVE IT "ON" FOR TWO HOURS AND THEN IT WILL START STEAMING AGAIN. I CANNOT MAKE SENSE OF THE HEATING INDICATORS; SOMETIMES IT WILL STAY GREEN NO MATTER WHERE YOU SET THE DIAL ---- AND IT DOES NOT FEEL HOT! WHEN I TRIED IT AGAIN TODAY, THE SHOT-OF-STEAM WORKED FOR A WHILE (AND THE SPRAY WORKED), BUT THEN ALL IT WOULD DO IS DRIP WATER AT THE TIP WHEN TIPPED DOWNWARD.


I couldn't find any warranty information on this iron, but I suspect that the heating element either has a faulty connection or part of it has cracked, making contact at time, but poor contact at other times. The unit will have to be taken apart an ... Rowenta Vacuums

We tried this and found mineral deposits on the gasket and metal plate, which we removed with vinegar and water. When we reassembled the pot, the lid pumps much easoer. but no water comes out. What should I do?
