Panasonic NN-SD776S microwave Start button stopped working. I know, the first thought is a bad door switch because "everyone knows a microwave should not turn on if the door is open." I am experienced with electronics, but even the timer won't start at all. Funny thing is, I had this exact model do this exact thing just over 2 years ago - troubleshot all the hardware until I was lost, finally bought a new one from Costco (June 4/08). And now 2 years later this one craps out - a 2 year timer

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vac

Two years ago I purchased a small electric fondue pot called a chocolate dipper here in Texas, at a CVS Drug Store. They no longer have these in stock. I would like to purchase another one. This little chocolate dipping pot was made by your company. I got your web address off the box. Do you still have these in stock and if so can I order one from you. I paid $9.99 my pot two years ago.

Dyson animal We bought a Dyson Animal from Sears a few years ago along with a service contract. We took it each year to be serviced. One year I took it because it lost it's suction. They sent it to the factory, but it came back still not working right. We did the same procedure over ands over many times than I can remember. I now have the cleaner in my garage and am using my old vacuum because I just can't seem to get anywhere with Sears. Please help me. We paid almost $600.00 and now it can't b

Filter I bought this Hoover a few years ago-- just now about to use it first time. I cannot find my user's manual and don't know how to change the filter-- or to clean it or whatever I am supposed to do with it. Also, there is a handle on one side of the unit that seems to be attached to an empty chamber or canister kind of thing. It looks like it should pull out, but it does not budge. I really would like to have a manual, but can't seem to find one. Is there a similar model that is still

A friend who bought a multimaster less than a year ago has had his start a loud 'clattering', dry, noise, and the gearbox started to get hot. The output shaft now has about the same amount of slop as the total movement should be. It is one of the quick attach type. I bought one of the allen key attach type, and have found in the past with various 'name brand' tools, drills, angle grinders etc that they usually use a 'dry' type grease which soon throws off the necessary parts and they run dry u

Poor suction We bought a model home about 11 years ago and it had the Cental M&S Cyclonic Cleaning system. The suction has steadily been weakening. Now it is almost non-existant. I clean the filter bag in the main unit, but how clean does it need to be. Could there be a clog in the wall lines. If yes, how does one unclogg them. Thank you. I liked the system and would hate to just give up on it. Jean

Hi. I purchased a Simplicity Freedom about 2 years ago. I have had it in for various repairs several times. One persistant problem that the repairman cannot seem to fix is the dirt does not fall down into the bag - it just stays up around the suction hole. I only use simplicity bags. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. thank you
