My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

I have a roomba 530 pet series. It appears that the brushes aren't turning. They are free of dirt and debris and move easily when manually turned.

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.

Our dustbuster (dont' have model number with me-sorry) won't turn off when I pull back on the switch handle. I disassembled the unit and realize that the tab on the switch handle that pulls back on the internal switch handle to turn it off is not strong enough for its simple task. Does B&D have a proper replacement part?
If you can provide a model number, I can check availability of the switch and can either order it for you, or supply the B&D part number and you can order it from most local vacuum shops in your area or from Black & Decker direct online: ... Black & Decker 15.6 Volt DustBuster Vacuum

The digital readout on my Redmon brand digital small animal pet scale will not "zero out." When turned on, the weight displays a weight from the memory, which is what the scale should do, but it's then supposed to zero out so you can weigh the animal. I've put new batteries in, and also taken them for a while (up to an hour), then replaced the batteries, and turned the scale on. This has not worked. Any ideas?
My vacuum is a Kenmore Special Edition with a Power-Mate 12.0 AMPS wand. I ran over the edge of fringed edge of my living room carpet and immediately turned off the vacuum. Although I have removed the fringe pieces from the wand head and I have pushed the overload protector reset button on the wand, the wand brush will not turn.
