My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John

It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum

I have bought a house with a Bricard electronic wall safe which might be useful but which is locked open (ie the locks are out but the door is open). I do not know the pin code and there does not appear to be a manual. Any ideas on how I can get this back into working order?

To : admiralstopf I have a U-Line clear ice maker UCLR2060B40. The authorixed service center has been trying to fix my unit since October to March. They have replaced the circuit board 2x and the Thermister and rain tube. They clai they were able to get it to work on their bench (not sure if true) but they can not get it to work in the house. They gave up and refunded my payment. Now what? Jonathan

Unfortunately we are not affiliated with any manufacturers. What I would do at this point is to contact the manufacturer of your ice maker and let them know what has transpired when you attempted to have their authorized repair center fix your issue. ... Vacuums

Its for a central vac system. I have very low suction power. I've emptied the dirt trap. It seems the fan is working ok, so I guess theres a clog somewhere but I have no idea how to find and fix it. I have no manual on the unit as it was in the house when we bought it. I'd guess its same age as house (19 years old). Any advice would be graetly appreciated!

Usually, low suction would indicate access ports allowing air to enter the system. Easy to test system however. Test vacuum first. Remove intake hose to vacuum ( at the vacuum canister ) and place your hand over intake. You should feel considerab ... Vacuums

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther

I have a Polti Vaporetto household steam cleaner that I bought 16 years ago. I haven't used it for about 10 years because the connection between the steam er and the attachments doesn't work properly and it is difficult to use. The shop where I bought it no longer sells them and can't get them fixed anymore. I'm about to ditch it, but thought I would have another go at using it. (It was very expensive). Now I can't get the safety cap off so I can't fill it or test it. Any ideas on what I can do

I have a new (couple of months) Cuisinart Espresso Maker EM-100C. One has to turn on the power button on the front in order for the unit to heat the water. The button will only work if the two manual knobs are in a certain position. Very occasionally, it took a few tries to get the button to turn on. Now it usually does not work but will once in a while. Any ideas what we could do to repair this problem?

Our kenmore progressive model #11634922 was working fine today. And then - it's not. Plugged in - nothing is working on it. We let it cool down (though it didn't seem hot). Still nothing - no light, no motor. Tried it in some other plugs that we know are functioning well - and still nothing. Any idea what might be wrong with it? It's six years old but doesn't get heavy use. Thanks so much ~ Susan Golden

Doesn't work Our home was built and finished in August 07.  The central vac doesn't work.  There is supposed to be a slot that opens in the kitchen where you sweep the dust and it sucks it up.  Also, the mounted unit on the garage wall has a hose that goes up into the house but there is a hole open at the bottom of the unit.  Where can I get someone to help us?  Or, is there an installation manual I can download to see if the builder did it properly.  He stole our solar heater for our pool and s

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

I was changing a light bulb with one of those metal extension rods that unscrew and screw back in the replacement bulbs. It evidently didn't seat correctly and pulled off the bulb and created a quick "poof" type electrical short. I have switched out that bad bulb with a new one and can't get either the fan or lights to work. There doesn't appear to be a reset switch. I also swirched out the wall switch to see if that would make a difference and it does not. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreci

I have my Emerson FR966T wine coller set for 60 degrees, but my cooler never seems to get the high. It always hovers around 58-59. When I heat my house up (never above 68) my cooler seems to warm up to 60 (inside). Whats up? Why does the outside temp. affect the inside. The manual says it works best when the ambient temp. is 77 or lower.

Have a Shark steamer. Tried the vinegar, tried the CLR, tried putting a piece of wire and a skewer into steam hole...no luck. The unit gets hot but no steam. Will try one more round of CLR and let it sit overnight. Other than all that I mentioned...have no idea what to do next. It's a great gadget if it worked!!

I took the cable off and brought it in the house to thaw. When I reinstalled the cable, it worked ine except the shute does not operate in its full range of motion. I have the cable EXACTLY in its original position and routing. The shute only closes about half way. I cannot get the shute to close any lower. Any suggestions?

When I push the start button it automaitcally cancels the set up and will not run. I have unplugged it for a while and then put it back in and it's worked before but not anly longer.
