Brush works intermittedly - I've looked at the common solutions listed but none seem to work...shaking it & reseating the canister will get it working again sometimes but obviously that doesn't seem to be a very good solution. Can you help?


I just had the same problem. I would turn on the vac, and it worked fine. When I turned on the brush it would work for a few seconds then shut off.

I have the Hoover upright windtunnel and have used it only once. It worked wonderfully the first time but now only the hand tool has suction. I can't find the book that came with it though. How do I get the main vacuum to work?


Seems like you must have suction at th hose. The either a belt came off or it is plugged up at the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Some Hoovers have a spring loaded door that opens and closes depending on whether the handle is down or in its upright ... Hoover Vacuums

I have a Wertheim 4808 Barrel vacuum cleaner that has suddenly stopped working. I believe that there is a problem with the electrical cord connection inside. I have tried unsuccessfully to open the compartment that leads to that area. One side unscrewed with a phillips head screwdriver but the other side seems to have a different type of fixing screw that I am unable to undo. It is awkward to get at and in a deep slot and the head of the fixing screw? is not visible.

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

My Reliable T730A Canister Steam Vacuum is not working. The red (empty) light stays on even though its full and it doesn't produce any steam. I doubt that the water is getting down into the heating chamber. How easy is it to take apart and clean or can I just blow compressed air through it? Any help most appreciated. Steve [email protected]


You can probably just blow it out with the air compressor. If you have a air pressure regulator on the air compressor then I would turn it down to about 30-40 psi. Then try to blow out the line. ... Reliable T730A Canister Steam Vacuum

George i have just bought George from a friend and he has never used the wet side of things . When i turned the hoover on i cant seem to get the wet button to work. Do i have to have the hoover main button on first and then press the wet button?

My walkie talkies won't turn on. We've only used them a few times, and not recently. I charged the batteries, but it doesn't seem to want to switch on. I've pushed that grey side button. Is it possible that it's locked off? And, same problem is with both of them. Seems a basic question, I know. They should be working though. Thanks, Bruce

I regret to report that my Remington Dual Foil F3790 is the poorest electric shaver I've ever owned...!!! It's only 2 weeks from brand new yet - even after 15-20 minutes of very hard work...!!! - I simply cannot get it to shave off all my facial stubble ...!!! What do I do...? I've discovered that my wife, who bought it for me, binned the packaging - though we do still have the receipt.

We have a series e rainbow cleaner. my wife had been using it i turned off and turned the canister up sie down to get the serial number. it would not turn back on.we need a new hose and thats why i was looking for the serial num. it has a rocker switch and the motor will work on low but will not run on the suction side. i have checked the wiring harnesses out as best i could without taken it all apart. im wondering if it may be the switch. it started once and then stopped.


There is one way to verify if it is the switch.It's kind of dangerous though,but not too bad.You need an extra piece of wire,fairly thick.I would use 4 guage myself.Hold it with pliers,just in case it gets hot.Turn the switch on and hold the wire to ... Rainbow Vacuums

G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.


Sounds like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limi ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a Eureka 5902AVZ and the brushroll does not work. when i remove the belt, which is not torn nor worn out, the motor spins perfectly fine. Though when i put the brushroll back into place, it shows that the motor is trying to spin, but with resistance. it seems the brushroll will not spin if locked into place, because there is no attachment on the left side of the brushroll that will allow it to spin freely with the belt. am I missing some parts or is there something else wrong?

Dear Sirs, I purchased two Braun 5875 Contour Electric Shavers in May 2009. I didn't start using one of these new shavers until August 2010. In January of this year I found that the contour part of my razor started to flex on one side and the spring clip that retained the foil became loose. I didn't get very good shaves from this Braun razor and put it down to the pattern change of the foil itself. I have always used Braun shavers because I was of the opinion that German made articles were alway
