Can you please hepl, many thanks.


Difficult as you didn't say what the equipment is but it sounds like there is a problem with communication between the main box and the keypad box. Have someone check that all the wires in the keypad are connected and there is no break in one of the ... Vacuums

I replaced a Intermatic light timer with a GE 15086 timer. I have read several solution, but none fit my wire sceme. This is hooked up as a 3-way switch so the second switch can turn outside lights on manually. Here is what I have; Four timer wires: R B W G Wall outlet: B, B & R (Two), G, W bundle What ties in together to make it all work?


1) GE 15086 is not a 3-way timer.GE programmable timers are for single-pole switch replacement only. I have tested this timer, and own several GE timers, and many other brands.2) Open following link to identify timers that work for ... Vacuums

I have a vx550cc that keeps kicking in and out quickly, then shuts down for a few seconds and starts up kicking in and out again. There is lots of suction at all the outlets and sweeps. The dirt bucket has been emptied and the filter cleaned. Al the LED lights light up when the motor kicks out, then back to one green when it starts back up. This unit has worked great for four years with no problems.

I have a littermaid elite automatic litter disposal system. It stopped cycling and both lights are flashing. Nothing is stuck, it just made several passes at some point overnight without successfully getting to the receptacle due to heavy litter. The box was clear and moving before we went to bed. This morning the lights were flashing. I unplugged, emptied, etc and it will not work. what now? It does not have the reset button at the receptacle button that the old models did. Is there one?

I have a coralife aqualight model 53008. It uses two 65watt compact bulbs. The whole light quit working one day. I tested the bulbs in another aqualight I have and the bulbs were fine. I want to know where the ballast is. I opened up the ends and the wires are so secure I cannot pull on them to locate a ballast. Please advise if this is a ballast problem and how do I replace it.

DC44 Used right out of the box for about 10 minutes, then I took a break and plugged it in. Went to use it again and after 1-2 minutes it just stopped. The green light on the charger unit is lit but the one on the handheld part is not lit. Is it just charging or did it stop working??

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it

I have a remote Hunter Ceiling Fan w/ remote 1-2-3 fan speed buttons and one on/off/dimmer light button. Model Number CP-9110R. It only has one pull string and it is for the light. I would like convert the light to work off of a simple wall on/off switch and the fan to be controlled by a 3-speed pull string. Can I by-pass all the sensors and make it work?


I see noone has answered so I will.Yes,it could be done,but if there is not a conversion kit for your fan,it would not be wise to do it.For starters,all of the things required would probably cost at least $15.Also,there is at least one tool you would ... Vacuums

We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire across the brown wires flicked the wall switch and it worked, aha i thought faulty switch aquired a new one to no avail and now even the short piece of wire trick doesnt work, has the motor died do you think, it wasnt over heating or making strange noises prior to refusing to work

Nutone Broan CV556 runs continuously and will not shut off until I unplug it.. I disconnected the low voltage wires and it still runs when I plug it in. Inside the top of the vacuum are 3 electrical devices - one looks like a transformer wire -- one is a rectangular electronic black box. The third is an on off rocker switch. Which piece it likely to be shorted out? It is about 8 years old.

I was changing a light bulb with one of those metal extension rods that unscrew and screw back in the replacement bulbs. It evidently didn't seat correctly and pulled off the bulb and created a quick "poof" type electrical short. I have switched out that bad bulb with a new one and can't get either the fan or lights to work. There doesn't appear to be a reset switch. I also swirched out the wall switch to see if that would make a difference and it does not. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreci

No Suction My two year old Kenmore Progressive stopped working in January. The guy at the Sears service center convinced me that buying a new one would be cheaper than getting it fixed. So I bought the exact same model and now this one has given out in the exact same way! I'm so confused. When I press on, it lights up and makes the whirring noise. Everything seems to be working but there is no suction anywhere. Not in the main part or the hose and there's no "cyclone effect" in the chamber. All


Try looking within the vacuum to see where the suction is getting stuck at. You may have to do some disasselbmeing but this is a manufacturers problem. You should also try to speak to the manager at the support and make a big dispute until you get yo ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have the IROBOT discovery that just got a new battery. IT ran great! As the battery was dying, I put it into the home base. The "brick" is green, the home base has two green lights and the on/off pulsates red. It never charges though. Eventually the red light stops pulsating. Customer service said to reset it, clean the metal, and nothing works! They told me to just buy another one. The problem is that I know it was working! Help!


The best thing that you can do is take the charger into somewhere that can test it for the proper output voltage. It should be somewhere very close to 22 volts with no fluctuation. The charger is the easiest thing to test in this case. ... iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum
