Having problems with your Vacuums ?

There appears to be a yellowy brown discharge that appears on my shirts when I iron. It doesn't happen all the time. How do I fix this?

\015\012 Your iron is building up calcium deposits inside the reservoir and occasionally they flake off and into the steam system along with any minor releases of steam and it is showing up on your garments. There are commercial products in the market place for cleaning your iron.

Hello, I have a Hoover 3200 Turbo Power vaccum. while the motor appears to be working fine the vaccum no longer picks up the dirt.

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that. I think this happened once before and maybe they replaced a circuit board(?). We took it to a local repairman this time and he says he can fix it temporarily with a new cartridge, but that he won't promise it won't happen again soon.....

One whir and turn of the motor, then nothing. It blew the fuses out in the kitchen first time too, so could it be a re

My Hoover SteamVac has been doing a wonderful job but in two instances, after emptying the dirty water and reattaching the reservoir, the machine has lost suction. The first time I was able to make it work again after taking it apart and putting it back together about 10 times. I don't know what I did that fixed it but as long as it worked again, I was happy. But it's happened again and I can't get it to vacuum. I can see that it isn't clogged. Can you please help me????
