Turn the machine on maximum and let it run for an hour or so. Then check the coils in the back with your hand. If they are not getting cold at all, then there is a significant problem with the refrigeration process in the unit. It may have developed ... Vacuums
RE: Goldstar dehumidifier: Model #DH404EY6, S/N 602TAQP05412 My unit is ~4 yr. old, has worked w/o problems until now. It will no longer auto. turn on. When I manually turn it on, the motor turns on, and then immediately shuts off, and "01" appears on the LED screen for humidity level setpoint. Is this an error code, and what does it mean? Can the unit be repaired? Thanks, Wolfgang
I have a WRPL 25P Dehumidifier, Serial # NQ336USA2733, that I purchased at Canadian Tire, Corner Brook, NL, Canada on July 25, 2009. I recently noticed that the dehumidifier wasn't working. When I turn it on, it just blows cold air and does not absorb the moisture in the air. I am wondering if it is still under warranty. Please advise if the product is still under warranty and what steps I need to take to have it repaired or replaced. Thank you.
We have a zenith dehumidifier model ZD300 & the bucket full light keeps flashing. the percentage number wont go higher than 1%. we have turned it off/on & unplugged it. When we do this it will reset to 40% for about 2 seconds & then goes back to 1% & the bucket full light starts flashing again. The bucket is empty & we have cleaned the filter. We have only had this dehumidifier about 7 months. Please help us.
I've had the same issue with mine. I am a 12 year refrigeration tech. I checked the float switch which would normally cause that indication light. However manually pushing the switch and then checking it with an electric meter that was not the case. ... Vacuums
Dehumidifier fan and compressor run fine (hot and cold coils). But it ices up almost immediately (room temp 68 degrees f). Defrost feature seems innoperative. Anti-frost sensor? Defrost heater? Controls? It also sometimes gives wildly incorrect room temp and % relative humidity readings (when compared to a quality thermometer/hygrometer) making the control panel look suspicious.

I have a miele S712 (2 yrs old worked fine yesterday) - I had been doing some diy work inside and had the vac on just to reduce some of the dust in the air - after a while the vacuum fizzled out. I guessed it had overheated and took it outside to cool down - when I tried to turn it back on pressing the power button gives it power and it starts to **** but it won't STAY on, soon as you release the power button it stops, and the orange bag indicator is showing full. As I have a compressor I took

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

I have an electrolux Enviro multi steamer which I was using this morning. I turned the steamer off for approximately 1 1/2 to do some shopping, and when I turned it on again, the steamer light turned on (green light) and then I waited for the orange light to go on, which too a while. When the orange light does turn on, there is no steam when you press the yellow button on the handle.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio

I have a roomba 530 pet series. It appears that the brushes aren't turning. They are free of dirt and debris and move easily when manually turned.
