Having problems with your Black & Decker 15.6 Volt DustBuster Vacuum ?

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!

Answers :

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 mains and only use them when you need them as you would any other appliance youd be saving yourself some money in the long run.

Hooked everything up per directions. I plugged it in to the closest electrical outlet and nothing happened. The lights did not light up, the connected wall control and sensors leds do not light up. It appears the unit doesn't have power. The electrical outlet socket is fine as everything else I plug into it works fine. I have tried every other electrical outlet available. The unit won't power on from any outlet, and all of those outlets run other things, like power tools an refrigerators

Dear Davehibshman,Firstly; dismantle the plug and replace the fuse with the same rating as the one you have just taken out. Replace the plug cover, put the plug into the socket and try again. If this doesnt work, there may be a problem wi ... Vacuums

I built a new house nearly a year ago but didn't move in until recently. The Nutone central vacum system doesn't have much suction. I've tried different things but am afraid there is a break or breaks in the system. My question is how can breaks or joints that come a part in the suction system be located so I will know where to cut into the wall.

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

I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should. I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast.

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet. It just shut down and wouldn't come back on. 10 minutes or so later it came back on but now it's got no sucking power. I figure I torched the motor. Good guess?

I have a self propelled Royal Dirt Devil vacuum model number 087900 and it goes backward fine but forward has to be pushed so hard it's impossible. Is this a switch? Do you know about how much the part would cost and can it be done by a beginner. We fix a lot of things ourselves but we aren't mechanics by no means. We put a brand new belt on it. I don't think it can be put on backwards and brush turns fine. Where is the switch? Use layman's terms.

You might try a new belt and/or brush roll. The brush roll is what helps pull a vacuum forward, the power drive helps, but if the brush isn't turning like it should, then it will hinder forward motion. The belt may look ok, but they stretch to the ... Vacuums

Controller's small red light flashes constantly, meaning that electric blanket will not heat up. Instructions state switch off, wait, then re-try but this does not solve. Web search for 'Spares' does not actually give spares sellers, only those wishing to sell full new product! Does anybody know of a true spares seller please? Dreamland themselves do not appear to sell spares. UK only.

When the controller is flashing red, this means that there is a problem either with the controller or the wiring inside the blanket. You might try looking on Ebay. You might find a spare there. The safe thing to do though is just purchase a new one. ... Vacuums
