Placing the handle of my Dyson DC07 into its upright and locked position causes the beater bar to stop turning. It will not start turning until the handle is first lowered to the working position and the Carpet/Bare knob is moved to the Bare Floor position and then back to the Carpet position. Then the beater bar turns until the handle is placed into the upright position. What might be the problem?

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?

Just replaced the belts on my Hoover Windtunnel II self-propelled vacuum. The brushes are now turning ok, but the self propelled feature is not working. Squeals when when you lock it in the upright position.


Check the plastic part, which the the self propelled cable is attached to. (release the handle, tilt it back. You should be able to see the cable attached by a screw to a black plastic arm.) It is either broken or the cable is lose. ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old


Sounds like you should do two things:\015\0121- Remove and clean the beater brush of all debris as best you can.

The power to rotate the beater bar only works half the time..it seems to be very positional. In the past I could get it to work, now it just won't turn. Have tried the re-set button . Expensive vaccum with poor reliablility!

I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

I opened the cannister to change the bag and when I closed it the motor switch will not turn on. The second position which turns on the attachment for rugs still comes on.

It can be a few things. First check the overload protector located on top of the canister. If it has tripped the unit will not run.

Not sure if I can help, but I'll try. The DC17 has two motors: the vacuum motor and a separate motor for the brush bar.

My walkie talkies won't turn on. We've only used them a few times, and not recently. I charged the batteries, but it doesn't seem to want to switch on. I've pushed that grey side button. Is it possible that it's locked off? And, same problem is with both of them. Seems a basic question, I know. They should be working though. Thanks, Bruce
