Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have to replace the light bulb and can't find the instructions in the manual. I guess they figure it's obvious, but not to me! I've had it for about 30 years and can't remember the bulb burning out before. I have the replacement, just need to know how to do it.

I heard that a class action lawsuit against Oreck Vacuum is being started because of all the problems customers are having with their vacuums. Does anyone know about this? My Oreck is only a couple of years old and keeps burning up belts. I took it in after only one week of usage when I started to notice white smoke coming out of it and the smell of burning rubber. I feel like I got the old run-around, when the service tech told me he couldn't find anything wrong (but replaced the burned up belt

Power nozzle of my S3670 does not work (vacuum itself does work), the headlight bulb in the nozzle is broken. This happened in the past several times - we would bring the vacuum to service center - I don't know what they did other than replacing the bulb. I decided to go to ACE and buy replacement bulb myself, replaced the one in the nozzle - this did not fix the problem. I don't see any fuzes or anything in the nozzle. However, the manuals says to "Use only HOOVER part no. 27317307, which is a

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t
