Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I was recently given an Elnapress Electronic without a manual. Is the buzz alarm supposed to 'buzz' whenever the press is engaged and can its volume be turned down?


Answers :

The buzz alarm should sound after the press has been closed longer than 10 seconds as a safety warning. To operate the press, close the lid down with the left lever and engage the pressure with the right lever for 1-2 seconds, then release. It doens't need to be held closed for long periods to press the garments. If you find that 1-2 seconds isn't giving you a good result, change the foam under the cover, it does go flat with use and needs to be replaced regularly. Ask for a heat resistant foam and cut to fit the base board. You can also sew yourself new press covers from cotton easily.

My Electrolux Epic 6500 SR will not turn off by pressing on the switch button. I took it apart and removed the switch assy. I can maunually turn it off & on by pressing the rocker arm on the switch assy. It appears that the problem is with the big blue operator button, not the switch assy itself. The button does not seem to press down enough to cause the rocker arm to switch. The button has a "U" shaped wire that presses on the rocker arm and it may have some broken plastic details at the b

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

We have a Hoover upright vacuum cleaner, model Core 7. There is a switch that turns on and off the brush drive. This operates via a cam with a bearing putting pressure on the final drive belt to engage the brush head. My brush head is not turning and with the lever set to engage the drive there is still considerable slack in the final drive belt. There appears to be only a bearing deflecting the belt, should there be a pully or other device mounted on this bearing? There is so much slack a


Yes, there should have been a white plastic sprocket on top of the bearing - in its channel the belt would sit. Unfortunately no parts are available for this unit that can be bought retail - only available by order to dealer repair shops.\012\012\012 ... Hoover Vacuums

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.

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. I replaced the motor,which didn't fix it. Is the reset switch next on my list? T

A cap on one end of the roller brush is centered and turns freely. The one on the other end is not centered and does not turn but does not look broken. It looks like it's supposed to be that way but it doesn't allow the roller brush to turn. How to I solve this?


It's hard to say definitively what the problem is here. Rollers usually have bearings at each end and they can wear or freeze up especially if they are exposed to water.

I have a Kenmore Progressive upright model 216-37100800. It is only around 1.5 years old. My wife said that one day after she plugged it and turned it on, it whirred up but then shut off.

After that the light will not light up on pressing the power button, unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. I have seen o

The digital readout on my Redmon brand digital small animal pet scale will not "zero out." When turned on, the weight displays a weight from the memory, which is what the scale should do, but it's then supposed to zero out so you can weigh the animal. I've put new batteries in, and also taken them for a while (up to an hour), then replaced the batteries, and turned the scale on. This has not worked. Any ideas?
