Lux legacy canister vacuum - the top light on the canister went on. No power to the bottom of the roller. What does that light mean. Looks like a plug


The "plug" light simply tells you the machine is plugged in and receiving power.\015\012I'm not sure what you mean by "no power to the bottom of the roller". If the power nozzle motor isn't working, make sure nothing is wrapped around the brus ... Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have a Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister vacum cleaner. It is nine years old and for the past few weeks it has started shutting off for no apparent reason.The symbol for bag change lights up and it cuts off, but even after I have put a new bag in, it still does the same thing. Do you have any suggestions? There is a little button or switch that the top of the bag fits on. Do you think it could be the problem?


Your machine is probably clogged, look through the wands, look in the bottom attachment, to see if there is anything stuck there. You can also drop a marble through the hose itself to see if anything is stuck there as well. To unclog the hose try hol ... Electrolux Harmony Canister Vacuum - EL6985 Vacuum

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

The light with a cord "plug" on it indicates that there is power coming to the vacuum. This is normal.\015\012Assuming that the vacuum works, but not the power nozzle, turn the PN over to view the brush. Clear all hair, thread, fibers, etc., ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

I am trying to change an old fashioned fuse, (house lights), luckily had a spare one. Have put the 15amp fuse wire through the whole thing, and trying to describe if I've got it right is alitle awkward, this is what i've done, cut a piece of 15amp wire a little longer than the old one, then loking at it, taken it straight through and round to left as I'm looking at it, and put the screw in, and obviously done the same for other side. My problem is that I don't remember taking the screws out of w

Sewing machine Guru needed ;) Elna Grasshopper (new to me) circa 1950 The light works, but there was no hummm when knee pedal engaged. I have the motor out, and it is very stiff to turn. I'm at a total loss when it comes to motors and electricity. It doesn't smell burned, doesn't smell at all beyond normal machine smells. (Yes, I made detailed notes and diagrams as I took said motor out!) One other note. The long thing which my husband said might be a capacitor -- it looks like

I have a remote Hunter Ceiling Fan w/ remote 1-2-3 fan speed buttons and one on/off/dimmer light button. Model Number CP-9110R. It only has one pull string and it is for the light. I would like convert the light to work off of a simple wall on/off switch and the fan to be controlled by a 3-speed pull string. Can I by-pass all the sensors and make it work?


I see noone has answered so I will.Yes,it could be done,but if there is not a conversion kit for your fan,it would not be wise to do it.For starters,all of the things required would probably cost at least $15.Also,there is at least one tool you would ... Vacuums

Does the hoover runabout u427-930 have a filter? I replaced the belt and next to the light bulb was a square gray mat that looked like a filter covering a screen full of holes that looked like the motor was behind. I think it was a mat of cat hair so I took it off and threw it away; I just want to make sure that it wasn't a filter that I need to replace.


From doing a search on the internet and hoovers website it looks as if this unit does not have a filter. Such as a hepa that needs to be replaced or that is washable. So i think you are safe and dont need to worry about it. ... Hoover Elite U5061-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Have Electrolux 1590 whole house vac, and can't see how to get brushes out. Leads so short, and don't want to break them trying to free brushes. Do they slide out of plastic housing? My eyes not real good, but it looks like the leads are part of a brass sleeve that slides into the plastic housing. It also looks like the plastic housing may be a snap lock type, but I don't see how to open it.

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.

In the interest of saving electricity, is there any way to turn off all those annoying power indicator lights, charging lights, LEDs, etc? Like on the stove, microwave and nearly every other piece of electronic machinery ever made.I guess I want to know how much electricity are these things sucking over time? When I get up to use the bathroom at night it's a virtual light show!


Not much power is generated by those lights, I can assure you! Most LED bulbs are so small they only generate a fraction of money that a standard light bulb uses up. Especially if its just on household appliances. If you just switch them off at the m ... Black & Decker 15.6 Volt DustBuster Vacuum

My husband sucked up part of a rug. The belt didn't shut off like I thought it was supposed to. Now there is a funny loud hum when the brush is running. There are also some fuzzy disc-like things around the brush that look like they're unraveling. Thoughts???


See if you can take the brush assembly off. There should be a plate and 2 screws. One on each side. You can lift out the brush and get all of the strings and such off of the roller brush.

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.


Better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time ...
