Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Have just purchased vax c90 vacuum cleaner,have a problem re-coiling the power lead.have followed instructions to press down on designated button,but power lead does not recoil.


Answers :

On pressing the cord has to coil into the holder and if this wont happen there is some mechanical fault in the recoiler or spring.
\012You can pull the power cord once again outside and let it slide inside, repeat this sequence to allow the winder to respond and then it might pick up.

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming. I replaced the motor,which didn't fix it. Is the reset switch next on my list? T

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

I have a miele S712 (2 yrs old worked fine yesterday) - I had been doing some diy work inside and had the vac on just to reduce some of the dust in the air - after a while the vacuum fizzled out. I guessed it had overheated and took it outside to cool down - when I tried to turn it back on pressing the power button gives it power and it starts to **** but it won't STAY on, soon as you release the power button it stops, and the orange bag indicator is showing full. As I have a compressor I took

I recently purchased a Sunbeam Artista EM5900 model coffee machine. I plugged it in and pressed the 'Power' button only to find the power go out. I understand this is short circuiting, so I went and turned the power back on. I then moved the machine to a different powerpoint and plugged it in - the same problem happened and I have tried it countless times on various other powerpoints. Help please?

Hi! I'm interested in purchasing a G3 model ; however , the seller says that the machine was working perfectly and then when switching power on a while later , the machine was " dead " .

I have a Kenmore Progressive model 116.22812204 purchased 2003.

There is no power...seems like a motor problem. The bag is clean...the mouth is clean the plug us in...NOTHING! I took mouth off and manipulated/pushed in that power press area that engages the motor on the front (not the switch on the back) and NOTHING! Not sure if motor died and/or what to do now. Help. I have had this baby for 15 years.


The front safety switch must be pushed in by either the hose or head (or manually), before the on/off switch will operate. The most common reason for no power is a bad cord. Second most common is worn carbons in the motor, and third is a bad switch. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
