Faithful Sebo X1 upright, about 12 years old, stopped working today. I replaced old with new dust bag, checked all dust paths were clear, checked main brush was clear/clean, and drive spindle rotated OK with fingers. When power switched on, the two red indicators briefly flash on then off, but nothing more happens, motor does not start - even with power reaching machine. Tried removing all consumables, refitting and turning on a few times to reset, no joy. Removed base cover, both belts were i
At 12 years, this vacuum has had a good long life. I suspect the motor is shot, but it could be due to faulty wiring and connections. A bad switch, break in the power cord, and worn brushes in the motor are other causes.\015\012I recommend ta ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum
We have a zenith dehumidifier model ZD300 & the bucket full light keeps flashing. the percentage number wont go higher than 1%. we have turned it off/on & unplugged it. When we do this it will reset to 40% for about 2 seconds & then goes back to 1% & the bucket full light starts flashing again. The bucket is empty & we have cleaned the filter. We have only had this dehumidifier about 7 months. Please help us.
I've had the same issue with mine. I am a 12 year refrigeration tech. I checked the float switch which would normally cause that indication light. However manually pushing the switch and then checking it with an electric meter that was not the case. ... Vacuums
The power head keeps shorting out during use. one of the connecting prongs from the handle to the power head is black instead of silver and is smaller in diameter like it has been arcing inside the connection. could this be the problem and if so can I replace it or will I have to take it to a repair facility. Thank you for your help, Jim Carey email@example.com
This is a problem with the connection in the wands and the powerhead. Because they are shorting out you may have to replace the neck on the power nozzle. (Leave that to a pro). But you will definatly have to purchase a new wand as replacement wires a ... Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched). I fixed the wires and it worked intermittently for an hour then shut down completely. Could the reset switch have a short? When I press the switch nothing happens.
The switch is definitely a possibility, but other problems can also cause this.\015\012Bad switch, needs replaced.\015\012Broken wiring in power nozzle, wands, hose, or canister.\015\012Bad PN motor.\015\012\015\012I str ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
We bought our Kirby less than 5 years ago and lately are not happy with it....it keeps breaking. The warranty has expired and our biggest complaint is that it has lost it's suction power. All the contents stay in the hose when I vacuum out the car or upholstery and it does vacuum well at all. The Kirby store quoted us over $200 to fix/ service it. Apparently this is not covered in the free yearly maintenance which we just had done. Any suggestions?

My robot will not charge. Tried multiple resets and new battery from irobot.com (both suggested by Irobot customer service) but got nowhere. The vacuum did work for a short time (until the new partially charged battery ran out). If I bypass the internal charging circuits and charge directly from the charger (with jumpers) the robot seems to work fine. Unfortunatey, there is no mechanism to turn off the charge cycle, so this is not practical.

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming.

HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary
