Hi,
let the unit dry first the water might affects the carbon contact of the motor.

Dyson DC07 My DC07 cuts out after 5 mins and I want to replace the thermal cutout. I have cleaned it thoroughly, including the cyclones but it still cuts out. How does the plastic moulding around the motor dismantle? I have started by removing the 4 torx screws but the upper grey housing does not want to detach and I am worried about breaking the plastic. Appreciate any advice.

I caught a shoe lace in my Dyson DC17; pulled it free, opened the brush/roller area and cleaned everything but the brush still won't work. Read somewhere that there is re-set button but the only one I found was to switch between the brush / sweep functions. Is there a fuse / connection / part that may need to be replaced?


I don't believe so. Keep trying the reset button. Sometimes the reset sticks. Hope this helps. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

When attempting to start the sweeper the red caution light (red triangle with exclamation mark comes on) but sweeper does not turn on. There are no obstructions in the hose or sweeper bag.

Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice?

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated

I have a Husqvarna Viking Designer sewing machine. The fuse blew in the machine and I am having trouble finding a replacement fuse. It is a T3.5/250v glass fuse. Please let me know where to find one. I have searched the internet high and low and can't find one. Radio Shack has a 3.0amp 250v slow blow fuse whick seems to be the right dimensions. Willl that work. Otherwise, I am not sure what to do and can't afford to take the machine to a repair show. Thank you.


That fuse will work no problem. There is no harm in trying it.The machine probably requires about 2 amps or less under normal operation. Being a 3.0 amp slow blow fuse, it will withstand short bursts of extra current when your machine get ... Vacuums

I Have two questions concerning my AIRVAC AV2500 Red Series Vacuum System. How do you replace the light in the floor power head sweeper and can you replace the permanent fabric filter? We had the system installed in 2004 and the light in the sweeper head just went out and can not find any manual on line on how to replace it. The filter if not torn but avter 6 years it probably needs some kine of cleaning or replaced even though it says permanent. Any help would be appreciated. Jim McCluskey

The 10 amp thermal fuse on my Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner has blown. Unfortunately the red ink has worn off exactly where the temperature rating is printed so even with a magnifying glass cannot make out the exact replacement fuse to buy. Can anyone shed any light. I know you can buy the complete thermal fuse and wiring from currys partmaster but with delivery would cost about 20 pounds as opposed to 69 pence for the fuse itself. Thanks Mark Roberts


It appears the fuse is not available separately. Standard retail price for the complete unit is £9.00 including VAT. We can supply at that price plus postage and packing at cost, which would probably be no more than £2.50.  If this i ... Vacuums
