I have a craftsman garage door opener remote control model TX2028 139.18191. The remote stopped opening or closing the garage door. I replaced the battery and tried to re-program it through the LEARN button as per the manual of the Garage 1/2 HP opener. The process has failed after several trials and the remote is still not working. Is there anything else that I can try or should I get a new remote. Thank you

We have Lanson Smoke Alarms hardwired to our house. Model Number LANSD240I. They're started beeping for no reason and the red light flashes. I'll get new 9V batteries to try that but is there anything else it could be? Cheers Brett

Ihave a Hoover Windtunnel self-propel model U6445-920. The belt from the drive motor to the big wheel will not run in the center of the wheel. The belt runs about 1/3 off the wheel. I have tried several new belts and still the same problem. What do I need to do to repair this problem.


The large wheel may be worn off center. If the belt stays on and is not thrown, you can run the vac. if there is wobble in the wheel causing a genuine belt to slide off replace the wheel mechanism. ... Vacuums

We bought a new home in march. It is a brand new home, with brand new First Alarm smoke/CO detectors. The very first night, we noticed the iving room (main) smoke alarm was "chirping". So we tried to replace the batteries, but when we did, all of the smoke alarms started going off (they are hardwired). We took out the new battery & dealt with the chirp. It is getting to be too much. So we are trying to fix it, but everytime we replace the batteries, the alarms are silent for a little bit, & then

I have a Euro Pro Compact Performer model # EP 171 which I love. It is the best iron I have found for my quilting class. When I went to use it, I found my cats had chewed the cord to the point that it is unsafe. I took it to a repair shop to have a new cord put on it and they told me it had to go back to the factory. I do not want to purchase another iron because it is my understanding this model is no longer made and because I love it. May I send this iron back to the factory to have a new

My upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools. I have put in a new bag and have tried to see if anything is blocking the bottom. It sometimes makes a very loud noise when I try to vacuum. If I press the intell clean on and off yellow button the noise may go away but it still does not work.


Double check hose placement, making sure you have the hose inserted into the correct slot. The long attachment nozzle stores in the front hole on the right, and the sucking hose inserts into the rear hole on the right. I know this is too simple of a ... Vacuums

I have a Eureka Power Plus vacuum, model 4702, type A. To start off, it never really had great suction. Marginal at best. Then today I was vacuuming and smelled something burning and turned off the vacuum. At that point, smoke started pouring out from the bottom of the vacuum so I layed it on it's side and the smoke cleared but I never found the source. Is it safe to turn on again after I let it cool down or is my vacuum "shot?"

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.

Our kenmore progressive model #11634922 was working fine today. And then - it's not. Plugged in - nothing is working on it. We let it cool down (though it didn't seem hot). Still nothing - no light, no motor. Tried it in some other plugs that we know are functioning well - and still nothing. Any idea what might be wrong with it? It's six years old but doesn't get heavy use. Thanks so much ~ Susan Golden

I'm trying to find a part number for the motor on a 113296200c, craftsman wet/dry vacuum. Sears could only provide part number 09 113826404 for the model number 113296250c. I have found motors with the model number 826404 on ebay, however no one can confirm if this is compatible. Can anyone help me out here?

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not suction at all. I have tried cleaning and unclogging the filter and everything. It's bagless so I don't need a new bag.


The problem is that your belt is stretched and worn. This causes that burning smell and it also causes the vacuum to not pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual with instructions: ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

Hi On a Hoover convertable model U4497-900 I'm trying to replace the fan. The old fan cracked, then flew apart.
