Having problems with your Vacuums ?
My Braun tootbrush has never charges-i have a 240 & 11v shaver socket but nothing seems to happen when i plug it in?
When charging a device on some type of charging block you need to plug it into a regular 110 socket as the block has the correct modifications in it for the device that it charges. This 11volt shaver socket is for older shavers that dont charge up you just plug them in and use them.I hope this helps you ....good luck

I just bought kaz model K76P (M) humidifier in Kyoto. I filled it to the right water level (a bit below) and plugged it in (nothing else is plugged in at that socket). The light comes on, but the water doesn't heat up. I can't read Japanese so can't read the instruction manual but it seems a simple procedure: fill with water, set the heating thing the water, plug in. Am I missing something or is the humidifier defect?
Take it back to the shop it should work and even though its in japanese ,they will know if your doing it wrong ,but i think it may have a damaged heater or a wire off where its been in transit ... Vacuums
Universal Lighting and Decor company: i have one of their Halogen Three Light Torchiere and Reading Floor Lamp and the Torchiere or top light has a defective socket which works only intermittently. It seems to have some resistance and you can turn it on and nothing happens, then if you wait 5, 10, 15 minutes, it will suddenly go on. I don't think this is safe. Can I get a replacement socket system for the top lamp or what can I do?
Hooked everything up per directions. I plugged it in to the closest electrical outlet and nothing happened. The lights did not light up, the connected wall control and sensors leds do not light up. It appears the unit doesn't have power. The electrical outlet socket is fine as everything else I plug into it works fine. I have tried every other electrical outlet available. The unit won't power on from any outlet, and all of those outlets run other things, like power tools an refrigerators
Dear Davehibshman,Firstly; dismantle the plug and replace the fuse with the same rating as the one you have just taken out. Replace the plug cover, put the plug into the socket and try again. If this doesnt work, there may be a problem wi ... Vacuums

Our kenmore progressive model #11634922 was working fine today. And then - it's not. Plugged in - nothing is working on it. We let it cool down (though it didn't seem hot). Still nothing - no light, no motor. Tried it in some other plugs that we know are functioning well - and still nothing. Any idea what might be wrong with it? It's six years old but doesn't get heavy use. Thanks so much ~ Susan Golden

Henry hoover Hi all, I bought a spares/ repairs Henry on ebay having been told there was no cable rewind and believing that since I had a spare one in the shed it would be an easy fix. However, poor Henry had his cable replaced to find when plugged in, he tries to start but nothing happens. The motor turns once and just cuts out. If you turn it on and off again it happens again. One whir and turn of the motor, then nothing. It blew the fuses out in the kitchen first time too, so could it be a re

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

I have a Brookstone Wet/Dry handheld vacuum. When I toggle the switch on or off, nothing happens. If I leave it on the charger and do this, nothing happens (so I don't think it's the battery). It seems like it's a few years old, but I can't be sure as I got it for free from someone's yard sale leftovers. They didn't have an option for "Brookstone" in the product selection, so I just chose the first one.
I realize this is an old post, but I also picked up the same item & \012have the same problem. Anyone know the fix? It's a Brookstone \012SKU#411884. I purchased it in an auction, brand new in the box. The \012filter is clean and shows no sign of ... AEG Vacuums
I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck. Nothing happens when I press the red "ON" button. What could this be? Thanks!

Dirt smell I seem to have a smell of dust when I vac. I have changed the bag and checked all areas where dirt collects and nothing is plugged. Seems to be puffing out from bottom and behind the unit

The electricity in the apt attached to my house lost power in two of the walls. It happened when the cleaning ladies I think were using a vacuum, they don't speak english very well so I'm not sure. I have looked at the circuit breaker a # of times and nothing seems to have been tripped. I have also inspected the outlets and they seem to be fine. Can you help me?
Even know the breaker doesn't look tripped it might be. You have to flip it all the way off and then back on again. That is most likely what has happened. If that doesn't work check to make sure a GFI hasn't tripped. They are usually loc ... Vacuums

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

There is no power...seems like a motor problem. The bag is clean...the mouth is clean the plug us in...NOTHING! I took mouth off and manipulated/pushed in that power press area that engages the motor on the front (not the switch on the back) and NOTHING! Not sure if motor died and/or what to do now. Help. I have had this baby for 15 years.
The front safety switch must be pushed in by either the hose or head (or manually), before the on/off switch will operate. The most common reason for no power is a bad cord. Second most common is worn carbons in the motor, and third is a bad switch. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?
There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn't find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt. ... Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum
