Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Our dryer has been running longer than normal on cycles. It seems to dry just fine but at times it seems like the timer is not working. The dryer will just keep running for hours. Ideas on what I should do?

Answers :

Have you checked to see that the knob for the signal to ring is still set to "on"? I know I have accidentally pushed my own off & wondered the same thing as you are.
You may also have an excessive problem somewhere. Check your removable lint filter as it may have too much accumulation on it & is making your dryer run longer.
You should remove it after every few cycles and clean it anyway.
If you use dryer sheets in your dryer, you should also, actually wash that filter to remove any remaining residue from the dryer sheet. You won't see it, but you'll know it's there by running clear water over it, and if it doesn't go thru the screen easily, there's your film.

After taking such good care of your filter & lint traps, check your dryer exhaust, all the way out to the outside of your house. Sometimes a lot of lint gets stuck in there also.. It's important to remove this because any lint that's caught in there could easily start a fire.

If you try all of these things and your dryer is still running too long and your not hearing the signal, I would check to see if the signal is operating first.

Set your dryer to stop in 5 minutes, then watch it. If it keeps running & you don't hear the end of cycle bell, check to see if it's set to "on". If it is set to "on" yet not working, you may have to replace the part or call a service person.....Check to see if your timer is broken or not, too. The wheel could be loose & may only need tightening. Or you may need to call a service person.
This will depend on what part needs replacement, or how handy you are.

I hope this helps.

My shark bagless sweeper worked for about 6 months. Like a previous blogger, I caught the edge of a rug that jammed the sweeper, three red lights blink, the brush is free moving yet the sweeper will not work. I did leave it plugged in all the time otherwise it would not run but for minutes. Very disappointed. New battery? what if that doesn't work? is it junk then, money down the drain.

This will probably cost you more to repair than to buy a new one. Does it turn on at all? ... Euro-Pro Cordless Bagless Upright Sweeper - Blue/Gray

I have a bissell pro heat model 7901-B that has power but no water circulation. I was told that the previous owner used it without water and that she couldn't get it the power on. I bought it off of her and cleaned it out and now the power works, but there is no water circulation. The brushes run and heater works, just can't seem to get it to circulate water.

The problem is probably not the battery pack or charger. I had the same problem and it is in the electronic over current circuit that prevents a possible overheating of the battery pack.

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

I bought a used vacuum seal machine (hobart model ht-120) it does excellent vacuum but it doesnt seal correctly all the time. it seems like there is something wrong with the valve that activates the bar that goes up and makes pressure and heats the bag for complete sealing. The heating is perfect but what is not working is what make the bar go up and down.

I have a panasonic mc-ul975 vacuum that works great when working properly. the airflow through the canister seems to stops once the aero blast technology is done running which causes the vacuum to not function as it should (does not have as much suction and the hose/tool accessories do not work at all). if air is continually running through the canister everything seems fine. please help!

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci

It seems to grab the dog hair and leave it in a straight line directly under the unit without picking it up. I then disconnect the hose and use to hose to pick up the dog hair.

I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

I have a Hoover, Steam spin scrub, Model F5897-900. Only used it a couple times and the motor gave out. First started being noisy then a bad smell. It did seem noisier that what I would expect from the start but I didn't realize it was a problem with the shaft of the motor. I took it apart and found the motor shaft wasn't true and causing sparks. The motor looks like it can not be taken apart and repaired. This seems like a default from the beginning but it is past warranty. Also noti
