Having problems with your Vacuums ?

MY IRON IS NOT THAT OLD AND IS LEAKING RUST, WHAT CAN I DO?


Answers :

You must always use Distilled Water in the iron. Try running a few cups of the distilled water through the iron. Iron on something you don't mind being ruined from the rust. It sometimes will flush the rusty out. If it is old and you've been using tap water the whole duration of using it you may need to purchase a new one. Good Luck!

Model # zw5000y8 The air conditioner is less than 2 years old, and has leaking water from the from of the air conditioner.

I purchased two of the same air conditioner and I havent had any issues with the other. Can someone please offer any advice on the reason that the air conditioner is leaking from the front and filling up with water, not the normal condensation,

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -

DZ9080 IRON IS NOT VERY OLD, BUT HAS HEATING AND STEAMING PROBLEMS. IT MAY BE ALL HEATING RELATED! MY WIFE WILL SOMETIMES JUST LEAVE IT "ON" FOR TWO HOURS AND THEN IT WILL START STEAMING AGAIN. I CANNOT MAKE SENSE OF THE HEATING INDICATORS; SOMETIMES IT WILL STAY GREEN NO MATTER WHERE YOU SET THE DIAL ---- AND IT DOES NOT FEEL HOT! WHEN I TRIED IT AGAIN TODAY, THE SHOT-OF-STEAM WORKED FOR A WHILE (AND THE SPRAY WORKED), BUT THEN ALL IT WOULD DO IS DRIP WATER AT THE TIP WHEN TIPPED DOWNWARD.


I couldn't find any warranty information on this iron, but I suspect that the heating element either has a faulty connection or part of it has cracked, making contact at time, but poor contact at other times. The unit will have to be taken apart an ... Rowenta Vacuums

The bearing mounted gear/cutter assembly at the bottom of my 6 month old GE 169188 blender has gone bad; it's very loose and leaks fluid. The part is easily replaced. Only problem is that I can't find the part anywhere I've looked online. What is the deal? Why dont they make such a simple part available for a nearly new cheap appliance????

Rowenta promaster iron leaking brown water...how to fix?


... Vacuums

The Lower body of the Bissell QuickSteamer, water pours out from the body. Solution: I took apart the machine and there is a spring loaded valve with a rubber washer at the bottom. Think of the letter T upside down with the rubber washer on it. The washer stretches over the bottom and the spring creates a leakproof plug and won't allow water to pass till the button on the handle is pressed. This old washer came partially off and allowed water to leak. I purchased from the plumbing dept. a mi

Lost Suction This is my second hoover steamvac and i am having the same problem with my new one as i did with the old one that i tossed out. I have used it about 12 times and it worked great the first 6 times... Now i'll empty a full tank of water and only half will get sucked back up. I have tried taking it apart and cleaning and also the rubber seal had some gaps so i sealed those thinking that it was leaking air from there...can anyone help? I am so close to chucking this one and buying somet
