Having problems with your Vacuums ?

We have a RCA radio clock. by mistake we connected it to a 230 V power point. it went out..it was purchased in USA. the power system in USA is 110 v.now the question is whether the RCA RADIO CLOCK could be repairable or not.


Answers :

You may have blown an internal fuse if you're lucky...try taking the cover off the unit to see if there is indeed a fuse inside and change it with the same type and rating..these fuses will be available at radio shack....if there is significant burned components inside the unit then I would recommend replacing unit....Now if you do not see burned components inside and a fuse either isn't present or isn't bad then the power supply is shot and probably isn't worth repairing
The power supply circuits are probally burnt out. The cost to repair would be greater than buying a new clock radio. Sorry.

Bought today a used rca rp3721a clock radio without the manual. need user manual to adjust all the settings, for example TIME, ALARM TIME, ALARM ON AND OFF, radio or "beeper" alarm on, entire unit on and off without unplugging it from shore power,and anything I haven't thought of up to here. The unit is RCA Model RP3721A clock radio, and appears to be functional. Our problem seems to be "the nut behind the wheel". e-mail: [email protected]

The motor on my Epic 6500 works, the hose is sucking, but the power head isn;t working... I tried the sidestep power head and that one works. Ive opened and replaced the belt and that is fine. The bulb was already burned out and wasn't replaced so I cant tell if theres power to the head. What else could it be?

Plugged my Dyson in this morning, switched it on and power came on for not even a second and died. No power what so ever to dyson - checked my house sockets, changed fuse. Still not working - dead as a door mouse. What could it be? Many thanks Sam


It is either your power cable, cable rewind mechanism or your motor. \012\012Try switching it on, and wiggling the lead near the plug and see if it fires up. If it does, remove the moulded plug and fit a standard plug. \012\012If not, lik ... Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

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 protected]


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

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

The mechanism that rolls back in the power cord seems to be working slower and sometimes not at all. Was wondering if the mechanism in question has an adjustment to increase the tension on it so the power cord goes in faster like it used to. Thanks Rafael

We have an elgin/advance 4248 alarm clock and NO manual! It had been acting strangely recently. For example: it turned itself into a 24-hour clock, the alarm didn't go off when it should have. the date setting won't change and so on. I could experiment with it if I had the instructions. But we don't. What to do?

I have a Howard Miller Westminster Chime Mantle Clock. It has always worked fine. It stopped working and my husband took the battery out to change it and when the new battery is in it will not work. It is Model 613-=103 movt 354201J dial 272142J. The part you put the battery in almost looks too big for one double A but I can't see how two would fit. I am afraid the battery is just not in right. Can you help me with how many batteries go in this clock or if it is one what the problem could be.

My kenmore progressive canister vacuum's power head has stopped working. When I check for suction from the hose, it seems strong. Could it be a belt has broken? Is this a repair that I could do myself? Thank you!


... Kenmore Vacuums

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope


Hi. On some models, one switch controls all of the power. Your issue, which is no working switch is almost certainly a blown triac on the circuit boar ... Vacuums

Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?


This vaccuum has a Fan Blade inside connected to the motor that spins to create the suction you feel. After a few years of use (and misuse) the blades on this (plastic) fan will be broken off, thus damaging the unit. These Fans are replaceable if yo ... Vacuums

Hi! I'm interested in purchasing a G3 model ; however , the seller says that the machine was working perfectly and then when switching power on a while later , the machine was " dead " . Other than the brushes , power switch or lead , is there perhaps a fuse at all which could possibly have burned out ? Thanks .


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,Unfortunately there is no fuse on a Kirby Generation model. In my 10 years of repairing Kirby's as well as other vacuums, I will tell you that 9 times out of 10, when a Kirby Generation doesn't turn on, it's t ... Kirby Vacuums

No power I ran over an elastic hair band with the hose that wrapped around the shaft (not the brush). Since then, no power. could the motor have burned up?


If pieces wrapped around the fan fins and jammed the fan from turning, this could be the problem. You may have to remove the front of the vac to get to the fan. ... Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum
