Having problems with your Vacuums ?
I have a Fellowes shredder P - 35C
It will work in reverse but not inwards. I have left it for considerable time but still won't start up when I insert paper.
Unplug the shredder and check the shredding blades to be sure they are not jammed with paper. If paper is stuck in the blades, it will not function to add more paper to the jam. It WILL work in reverse to remove it's jam. Also make certain the blades have not been bent by discs, credit cards, or thick amounts of paper. If all looks well, blades are straight and not clogged with paper, be sure the door (if you have this type of machine) is closed properly. If not of this helps it run, you might need to have a professional look at it OR it might be time for a new shredder.

Burned smell hi, I have used my hoover 4 times and is starting to smell as something burned, I checked the troobleshouting part of the owner manual and it says that check the belt, I already did that and everything is ok I used the hoover again and still smelling bad and start to work very slow I better shut off it.. what could I do??

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser
That noise is the clutch. A very expensive part and very hard to replace. When a problem with the clutch happens it's generally not worth the time and money to replace.I suggest getting a different type of vacuum, maybe a Miele or Sebo. W ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
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

My 4150 goes around in circles. It is about 2 years old and I clean it every time I use it which is several times a week. I use canned air to clean it but still does not correct the problem. Just started today.

I just purchased a black and decker corded hand vac/blower/inflator. I plugged it in (for the first time ever) it started and then shut off immediately. I tried different outlets thinking it blew a circuit in the first one. However it still won't start. Very frustrating!
Unfortunately those units are prone to breakage they are also usually a sealed unit (not able to take apart). The best thing to do would be take it back where you bought it and try to get your money back. They just aren't worth fixing. V ... Black & Decker Vacuums

We have a Bissell Power Clean vacuum, Model# 92L3P. A few days ago the vacuum started revving extremely high. We still have suction, but the RPMs sound like they're through the roof. At first the problem was sporadic, but now it's consistent every time the vacuum is turned on.

My Steam mop (model 90Y5F) is dripping water from the join at base of water bottle. It started off small and is now rapidly increasing. I spend more time going over the spills than actually mopping. Is there a way to prevent it as the little area where the water is meant to drip thru is flooded - I still get plenty of water through to the pad though.

I bout this vacume in mid December 07 and about February-March it started not picking up the dust on the floor. So in early April I bout a new filter and it still wasn't picking up the way it had in the beginning.

The DC04 Zorbster runs slow, it still picks up but I am worried it will overheat. If I hit it at the front, the motor picks up speed until the next time I start it up. Can you help???
The problem is likely caused by either (a) a broken or worn microswitch operating lever or (b) a faultyt microswitch. With the bin removed, the lever becomes visible just above the filter upon which the base of the bin normally rests.Repl ... Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have the eureka capture vacuum and it works great; however, it has recently started making an extremely high pitched sound when I use it. It is still vacuuming but the noise is so loud it hurts my head and I can only vacuum for a few minutes at a time before I have to turn it off. What is wrong with it???

My Kirby G 2001 upright vacuum wont turn on. I tried another outlet and still nothing. I don't see a breaker switch anywhere. If you know of any common problems I would love to hear them. I am very mechanically inclined, I just was wondering if there are any common issues with the motors or power switches etc. so I don't waste a lot of time troubleshooting. Thanks
This might sound a bit silly but check to see if the cord is plugged into the machine correctly if it is check to see if the safety interlocks are all engaged. ... Vacuums
Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.

Good evening, I have a Xio Z1010 electrolux vaacum cleaner and I hope you'll be able to give me some advice. The vacuum cannot be started. Last time it started for a few seconds and stopped suddenly. Something similar happened long time ago but that was due to overheating. Once cooled down in few hours it would start again. It is not the case now after 24 hours. Could you give me any idea what could be the reason? Your help would be much appreciated. Adorian

I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean. I washed the gore filter (output from motor to clean the exhaust air) as per instructions, then let to dry. It was very clogged but now very clean. The vacuum clearner still cuts out often.
