Having problems with your Vacuums ?
My Dyson is getting stuck when I am trying to vacuum. I try to force it by pushing hard, but it is stuck. Weird.
\015 The vacuum has suction and I can use the wand to pick things up. It feels like it is not engaging the carpet surface or floor correctly and then it won't move. Thank you for helping!!\015

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu

I have a Dirt Devil Vision self-propelled vacuum cleaner. Recently, the self-propelled feature is stuck in the backward mode, so it only goes backwards! I can get it to go forward if I push really hard (i guess it is good for a workout!). I try to turn off the propel feature completely, but it will not turn off. please help!

We have a Singer 626 sewing machine. It's an old mechanical machine with heavy metal parts.

Hi! I have a Pfaff Creative 1475. The presser foot seems "gummed up" or stuck. The back lever lifts it with great force, but then instead of staying up like the lever usually does - it then falls back down. The lifting foot stays stuck up and I have to push on it to get it back down. Help?

Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again. Sometimes is gets so stuck from moving forward at all, like it is stuck in one spot just trying to go while seemingly surrounded by barriers. Somet

Tried to take roller brush out to clean it's housing, cant get one side back in without trying to force it.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

I have a Polti Vaporetto Lecoaspira 710. I have filled the tank and set the machine up as usual. When I turn it on the boiler pump runs continuously for a minute or so and then the 'beep' begins and the machine shows that the boiler is empty. Obviously the water is not getting through. We don't live in a hard water area so it shouldn't be 'limed -up'. The manual says to leave it to cool down and then try again. That had no effect.

Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1

Loud noise I have a brand new Dyson and it is great on all my floors except one of my area rugs when it starts making this really loud vibrating noise. I am not sure why - nothing is stuck in the roller or vacuum and it doesn't make it on any of my other rugs. Also it is really hard to push whereas all the other floors it just glides. I don't want to return it but I also don't want to hear this sound every time I vacuum.
