Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Wind tunnel supreme sounds very loud

\015 We recently bought a wind tunnel supreme. it is very loud, and sounds like its going to come apart any moment.. the sound seems to be coming from the base. Is there anything we can check?I bought this vacuum only 5 months ago. Recently, whenever I am using the agitator brush roll option it makes a clacking noise as though the beater bar was hitting something. I took the bottom cover off to inspect it. Nothing was caught in any part, the belts are intact and unworn, the beater brush was in its proper position. The cover had no damaged or upraised areas, there are no cracks that could cause vibrating noises. The brush appears to turn rapidly and smoothly when turned on, just noisy and with a burning smell. Perhaps the motor is bad?\015

Pfaff Creative 1459. When trying to wind a bobbin, I do what I've always done, turn the small round "wheel" on the right, slide the bobbing into the little knob that keeps it in place and gently press the foot thing on the floor that should start the bobbing to winding. The bobbin does not turn at all causing a loud whirring sound and the needle goes up and down as if it were making stitches. I finally got some thread onto the bobbin but it is not smooth and looks like a spider. I really nee

This guide is a long piece of molded material (part of the compartent wall) to keep the belt from coming off the pulley. It also had a sort of metal clip on it. It was loose and I took it off because of the way the pa
