Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Dear Sirs, I purchased two Braun 5875 Contour Electric Shavers in May 2009. I didn't start using one of these new shavers until August 2010. In January of this year I found that the contour part of my razor started to flex on one side and the spring clip that retained the foil became loose. I didn't get very good shaves from this Braun razor and put it down to the pattern change of the foil itself. I have always used Braun shavers because I was of the opinion that German made articles were alway

I regret to report that my Remington Dual Foil F3790 is the poorest electric shaver I've ever owned...!!! It's only 2 weeks from brand new yet - even after 15-20 minutes of very hard work...!!! - I simply cannot get it to shave off all my facial stubble ...!!! What do I do...? I've discovered that my wife, who bought it for me, binned the packaging - though we do still have the receipt.


Try take it back to the dealer, they may have a record of the sale - and tell your wife to hide warranty papers in future, until the warranty has lapsed at least. ... Vacuums

I am trying to change an old fashioned fuse, (house lights), luckily had a spare one. Have put the 15amp fuse wire through the whole thing, and trying to describe if I've got it right is alitle awkward, this is what i've done, cut a piece of 15amp wire a little longer than the old one, then loking at it, taken it straight through and round to left as I'm looking at it, and put the screw in, and obviously done the same for other side. My problem is that I don't remember taking the screws out of w

Can the two inlet pipes be connected to one line? The central vacuum I have is probably from 1993/4. It has one exhaust pipe and two inlet pipes. It was initially under my stairs. I would like to move it and have in fact moved it to the garage but am now fitting the pipes. I would like to join the two pipes that were previously going to the two inlets into one pipe. Can I do it? Also would I then join the wires? Would I put a plate on the other inlet? THANKS. It is a SMART president's choice vac

It is Model 613-=103 movt 354201J dial 272142J. The part you put the battery in almost looks too big for one double A but I can't see how two would fit. I am afraid the battery is just not in right. Can you help me with how many batteries go in this clock or if it is one what the problem could be.

I have two old identical 5842's that I use in the garage and around the house. The belt broke on one so I bought a bag of 2 genuine Eurika "U" belts, which is the correct belt for this vacuum. They were obviously smaller than the original belt because they were not stretched out. When I put the new belt on it lasted about 20 minutes and then came off. I put it back on and ran the vacuum with the cover off to see what was wrong. Everything looked fine except the belt rides to the outside edge of
