Just purchased the unit 2 weeks ago. Worked great. Last night I left it plugged into an outlet - but turned "off". This AM the unit comes on; timer showing default @ 5 minutes; however, no "bubbling" action. Would leaving the unit plugged into a surge protector/UPS back-up unit overnight damage the product?

Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again.

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. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again.

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck. Nothing happens when I press the red "ON" button. What could this be? Thanks!

We have an Aquanot II charger for our backup sump pump. We unplugged the charger from the battery, and just plug the charger into an outlet. As soon as we plug it into an outlet, the two LEDs lite up, and then the fuse trips within a second. We bought the whole sump pump backup system in June 2009, so it is fairly new. Any idea whether the charger can be repaired?
