Having problems with your Vacuums ?
The "hand" run by battery
You have to take it all apart and clean the gears and shaft with keroseen on a rag. Use steel wool to take the rust off the shafts and gears and see if the motor will spin without the gears attached to it. If it does not that has to be taken apart and cleaned. When putting it all together use a light grease or vasoline and put a little on the gears and shafts. Put a little on the motor shaft but make sure you do not get it on the comutator where the brushes ride on the motor.

I dropped my battery operated alarm clock: the second hand still works but the alarm doesn't come on at the set time and the hour & minute hands don't "hold" their position - I took the clear front off and discovered that I could move the hands to a more secure place on the center spindle but I discovered during the night that the correct time was no longer showing. I really like this clock b/c it's battery operated and I can hear the alarm (when it worked) plus it has a "night vision" dial tha

I purchased a brand new P113 Ryobi charger about 2 years ago. It has never worked. If I put a P104 battery in for a charge, it looks like it works correctly. I push the battery tester on the battery itself, and it says full charge, but when I go to use the bateery, it dies right away. I have tried three new P104 batteries. The batteries charge on my charger at work with no problem. The funny thing is, I don't need a battery in the charger and the charger does the same thing, It runs the test
If you have your receipt, check with Ryobi to see if it is still under warranty. It comes with either a 2 or 3 year warranty, depending on when it was purchased. If it is still covered, get it replaced/repaired. If it is not, buy the P117 charger. $3 ... Ryobi P113 18 Volt One Charger 140501001

The battery will not charge in the sweeper. I can remove the battery and wire it to the power supply for charging and it will charge up and run the sweeper. So the power supply and the battery are both good. Obviously there is a circuit failure in the on board charging control. Anyone know a fix or a likely faulty component? I had a shark handheld about 8 years ago and it developed the same problem. I examined the little circuit board inside but saw no visible indications that would isolate t

I think I need to replace the main battery in my small floor vac - the one that can be hand held like a dust buster or work like a small floor vac. I need to know how to remove the battery and replace it with what kind of new battery..

After charging overnight, Roomba only runs about 25 minutes before shutting down with a red light.At this point the battery measures 15.13 volts ( about 1.26 volts per cell ) My hobby experience is that a ni/cad or ni/mh battery nominal charged voltage is about 1.2 volts per cell, and that the recommended end point voltage should be about 1.0 volts per cell. Seems like the battery is ok, butsome kind of voltage regulator is shutting things down prematurely. Is this happening, and , if so, how ca

The hand held dyson does not appear to charge. does the battery come away from the unit as I can't seem to release it?
