I've had it since sept 2008 Thnxs


Answers :

It's probably best to replace the device, when dealing with sparks and exposed wires. \015\012
\015\012If you're electrically-inclined, feel free to pry it apart (when unplugged!) and see if you can re-attach things, but generally soldering or gluing within an iron is a bad idea. \015\012
\015\012So... two and a half years is longer than most Hollywood marriages. It's been a good run. Time for a new iron.

The Power carpet sweep attatchment when plugged in runs on and off intermittitly. (Cuts on and off) It has barely been used What is wrong I don't see any loose wires


Try pushing into valve just a little more. If that doesn't solve the problem, it's probably a loose wire in the hose, wands or power nozzle. Could be the circuit breaker in the power nozzle. Contact your installer or a local vacuum cleaner repair cen ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

I just bought kaz model K76P (M) humidifier in Kyoto. I filled it to the right water level (a bit below) and plugged it in (nothing else is plugged in at that socket). The light comes on, but the water doesn't heat up. I can't read Japanese so can't read the instruction manual but it seems a simple procedure: fill with water, set the heating thing the water, plug in. Am I missing something or is the humidifier defect?

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k.
