Having problems with your Vacuums ?
My Bernina 807 set on min. speed takes off fast, doesn't go slow at all, although there is a difference in the slow speed setting and high speed setting if I switch from one to the other while stitching. The machine is well oiled and goes well apart from this.
I would like min. speed to start smoothly and slowly.
I have read it could be capacitor in foot, but DH says it does not look
burnt out. Would it help my problem to remove it?

Hi There I have got a Kirby 2 HG vaccum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from. I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

Hoover Windtunnel U5750-900 Agitator brush is weak. It turns fine if I tilt the vacuum back, but it slows to almost 1/4 speed when it touches carpet, even on the highest carpet setting. I've replaced the agitator belt twice. The brush used to turn powerfully even on the lowest (Hard Floor) setting. Ideas? I should probably lube the agitator brush ball bearings, and re-check the belt, but, other than that, I'm stumped.

My Rainbow E2 has been working great for years now, but recently it has stopped working on the vaccuuming setting, but will still run on the low speed air cleaning setting. I hope it is something as easy as replacing the switch. Would appreciate any tips to determine if that is the issue or possibly something larger. Tks in advance for the info/help.

Hello! I have a problem with my Tefal Sensio scales. They are now probably around four years' old and have been in perfect working order up to now. Well, I had some problems before - the moment I'd step on them, instead of going into "calculating mode" as they usually do, they would show the number 92 straight away and then the display would change into some strange symbols (please don't laugh here :-) - my weight in kg is 55, my husband's around 80 and each of us gets 92 reading).

Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again. Seen canister was full, emptied it and cyclone was quite plugged up so poked out the dirt. Had dog hairs in it as well as some ashes I had just vacuumed. Plugged unit in again and pressed switch.

It sounds like your Roomba's brush gears are not working. Run the robot without the dust bin to see if the brushes are turning. If they are not, the robot will need to be replaced. Contact iRobot CS for support at (877) 855-8593. ... iRobot Roomba 4000 Bagless Robotic Vacuum

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.
This is the answer I got from Bissell:Please\015\012check the gasket at the bottom of the tank to ensure it is attached and\015\012not lodged in the reservoir of the machine. If this is not the problem,\015\012take the machine for i ... Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum
I am currently unsure, it my Dyson DC16 battery is charging as it should. I read all the posts about Powersupply voltage of 28V and defective PCBs. I now need to know from someone who's DC16 is working properly what voltage the battery should have when it is charged. I currently only measure 24.2V in mine. Supposing there are 6 batteries in there with nominal 3.6 voltage each, which would add up to 21.6, I supposed one could charge with up to 25.2V (4.2*6) and once reach lower the voltage ke

I have a BC-A41 vacuum cleaner which has been working well, but now it appears to blow stuff away from the cleaner as I hoover. I find the hose packed up with stuff, but no content in bag.

I bought a Philips Senseo Coffee Maker Model 7824 from Geant in Carcassonne, Aude, France (where I live) two years ago and it works well as a coffee maker. However, I recently bought a packet of Chocobreak which included a holder for the Senseo coffee maker. The instructions gave a list of machines that could not be used with that holder, however, Model No.7824 was not included in that list. When I tried to use the holder provided with my machine it would not fit with either of the handles a
My wife's Viking 6690 smoked this last weekend. I opened up the end where the power switches are and the board had a 0.01 ufd capacitor the blew up. That would be easy enough to repair. However when the Cap blew, it also fried a small quarter watt resistor that sits just under the upper white pin connector on the board. The resistor is burnt beyond recognition and I am trying to find its value. Is there a schematic available for that board or a closeup picture of the board so that I could

I just purchased a westclox tech model 70014 yesterday. I read the instructions and set the time. About an hour later, the time reverted back two hours. I read the instructions again and repeated setting the correct time. I assumed it was working. However, I woke up by myself today at 5:30am, but the clock read 1:14. Is there any way I can fix this or is it a manufacturing defect?
I bought a Hampton Bay Hawkins 44 " ceiling fan (117 391) and would like a remote that I can control the speeds with not just the on and off. I have a pull chain for the speeds but would like to use a remote instead. Is this possible? I have a Hampton Bay Redington IV and love the remote. I'm looking for something like that.

Good evening, I have a Xio Z1010 electrolux vaacum cleaner and I hope you'll be able to give me some advice. The vacuum cannot be started. Last time it started for a few seconds and stopped suddenly. Something similar happened long time ago but that was due to overheating. Once cooled down in few hours it would start again. It is not the case now after 24 hours. Could you give me any idea what could be the reason? Your help would be much appreciated. Adorian

My HEPA Shark Model 238 is great when the moter operates at high speed. However, periodically, it slows down resulting in no turbo action and virtually no pick up of eve the lighted dustball! Sometimes a good swift kick will bring the moter speed back to "HI", but sometimes no matter what, it won't speed up.rnHELP!
If the motor is over heating, it will slow down and may even stop all together. A solid knock could reset the thermal switch prematurely. Clean it as best you can around the motor and try it again. If it does the same thing, turn it off for 20 minute ... Euro-Pro HEPA Shark EP238 Bagged Canister Vacuum
Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution tank to test without ay success. It is like it loses it's prime whenever you try to use a solution mix. Once you set it back to water rinse only and go through the priming steps, it is OK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
