Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Universal Lighting and Decor company: i have one of their Halogen Three Light Torchiere and Reading Floor Lamp and the Torchiere or top light has a defective socket which works only intermittently. It seems to have some resistance and you can turn it on and nothing happens, then if you wait 5, 10, 15 minutes, it will suddenly go on. I don't think this is safe. Can I get a replacement socket system for the top lamp or what can I do?

Hooked everything up per directions. I plugged it in to the closest electrical outlet and nothing happened. The lights did not light up, the connected wall control and sensors leds do not light up. It appears the unit doesn't have power. The electrical outlet socket is fine as everything else I plug into it works fine. I have tried every other electrical outlet available. The unit won't power on from any outlet, and all of those outlets run other things, like power tools an refrigerators

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.

I have an electrolux Enviro multi steamer which I was using this morning. I turned the steamer off for approximately 1 1/2 to do some shopping, and when I turned it on again, the steamer light turned on (green light) and then I waited for the orange light to go on, which too a while.
