Having problems with your Vacuums ?
The wheel goes around fast but just a hum sound... not the normal sounds.
And there is only minimal draw of air. After awhile it just stops.
The upper motor is clogged with debris. To take apart the unit you first remove the screws on the bottom plate where the rollers are. Then remove the fasteners on the upper housing and the handle swivel. Separate the top halves to access the fan motor. Clean the dirt etc. and plug in the vacuum (be careful- shock hazard). The fan will blow out the rest of the dirt. Clean the insides and re-assemble.

My Singer Izek sewing machine starts and stops and wont sew continuously. When I push down the pedal it sews about 2 inches then stops and light starts flashing, I have to let off of the pedal and push it again, over and over. It did this once before for awhile and then just started sewing right for awhile and now its started it again. I've checked everything.
If it's not the thread and not the pedal then it's definitely a power problem. You need to replace the power cable and then check again the functionality. ... Vacuums
Nothing inn the canister after using,suctione working,bottom roller working,no air leaks from hoses.Also when running awhile it shuts off by itself,have to wait awhile to use again
I'm not sure what vacuum you have, but that sounds like a blockage to me. Thermal shut off kicks in, shutting the motor down, to prevent damage from overheating. After waiting like 1 hour it probably comes back on. Make sure hose, filters, bag (if an ... Vacuums

I have a dyson animal dc24. It is 7 months old and has stopped working. The hand tool is working fine but when I insert it to engage in normal vaccuming the suction stops. I can hear a strange air sound. Also the brush is spinning but it is not picking up. I have taken it apart and checked for a clog but I don't see one. Any advice?
Hi there,I'm sorry to hear your DC24 Animal isn't picking up as well as usual. Although I note you've already checked for blockages, it sounds as though this is likely to be the cause of the issue.To locate and remove any blockages, p ... Vacuums
Vacuum stops My Wind Tunnel stops working in a very short time when using. It takes awhile for it turn back on. It still shuts off quick. I have cleaned the hoses and inside of the power brush. This doesn't correct problem. Delbert Briggs
Your thermal cutout is tripping. This only happens when the motor heat gets very high, and the reason it takes a while to turn back on is that the motor has to cool down before it will reset.

I have a kenmore upright 12 amp (M.N. 116.30003402C) vacuum that is not drawing anything up the hoes. There is no obstrution in the hoes and motor, belts, components are working, but there seems to be perhaps something missing(a part) or lost in the macinism that aids in drawing the air required to **** dust/dirt through the hoes and into the bag. Perhaps a diagram of parts and their function would help. Thank you.

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine. I've tried soaking it in hot water and soaking it with cleaning solutions. They have not worked. If I blow into the connection piece, no air goes through. That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.
I had the same issue with the rectangular mop and corrected it by disassembling the tube from the rectangular piece.
