My Kirby G6 light is not turning on when I start the machine. I took off the front piece and removed a lot of hair from the roller and interior. Since I did that, the belt keeps coming off (even though it is fairly new). Is that the reason the light won't turn on? Is there any advice you can give me before I take it in?
The light indicates that the brushroll is spinning. If it isn't coming on, the power nozzle may have been reinstalled incorrectly. Take the nozzle off and then use my step-by-step guide to reinstall it. I expect that it will take care of the problem. ... Kirby Vacuums

Progressive 3592 The intelclean does not seem to be working anymore, we purchased the machine this Christmas. After the vac is running for 30 seconds the intelclean turns off and the light are only green. We have 2 golden retrievers and we know the carpet is hairy and the lights should be red. Any suggestions?
Well you could have a clog in the hose or the inlet down by the brush roll. other then that, if it s less then a year old, take it to Sears for repair, it would be under warranty. ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

Sewing machine Guru needed ;) Elna Grasshopper (new to me) circa 1950 The light works, but there was no hummm when knee pedal engaged. I have the motor out, and it is very stiff to turn. I'm at a total loss when it comes to motors and electricity. It doesn't smell burned, doesn't smell at all beyond normal machine smells. (Yes, I made detailed notes and diagrams as I took said motor out!) One other note. The long thing which my husband said might be a capacitor -- it looks like

My dyson DC05 has been playing up for a while. The motorhead would start fine with green light on and after a few minutes would stop and light would go green. then the power would go on and off - seemed to only work when I had the handle a certain way. Now no power at all. is there a way that I can check if its the power in the handle section as thats the only way you can turn this machine on? Thanks in advance
As the wires that control the motorhead run all the way down the hose it is a break in the wires you will need to buy the hose assy sorry its not thesort of thing you strip down and repair ... Dyson DC05 Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

When I plug in my vaccum the power light turns on, but i get no power to the machine??? I changed bags and filters and still nothing??? Can you help?
That light wire is attached to part of the wiring that is just a piece attached to the main wire coming from the switch. Your bags and filters have nothing to do with powering the machine. You may have a bad switch or there may be a ground wire off ... Vacuums

Have a hoover windtunnel platinum. I have changed the bag ( hepa Q bag) but the bag light wont reset. so the vaccum wont turn on. I have unpluged it and let it set for a while with the new bag in and repluged it in. I have checked the brushes and it is all clean but it will not reset. This only the second bag so it is a new machine I should not be having problems. Is there some sore of reset button I can hit.

Lately, my Kirby Ultimate G has been acting funny. When I push it forward, it's fine, but when I pull it backward on the carpet, the light on the front flickers and the power flutters off an on. I thought it might be the rollers, so tonight I turned the machine over and pulled out the hair that was wrapped around the roller. However, that did not fix the problem. I should probably backtrack a little bit. In the past, I have had problems with the vacuum running over its own power cord.
The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be r ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a B60 Special edition Keurig. I turned the power on and the "not ready" indicator just never goes away. Consequently when I insert the k-cup and pull the lever down to activate, none of the lights flash so I cannot select or brew. The machine is out of warfranty - but it is only 2 years old. Surely I should get more mileage out of it. I use Britta filtered water in it...

I only know this model as the Classic, but the colour of the canister in the photo is the same. The machine will not turn on, but when I retract and pull on the cord, the power light comes on briefly. Is there a short? I lent the vacuum to my daughter and perhaps she was rough with the cord.
