Having problems with your Black & Decker AV1200 DustBuster Handheld Vacuum ?

Does not hold charge. Strong for about a minute and it dies off. It is not very old so I can't believe its the battery. Shouln't they last long? Thanks for your help.

Answers :

If the unit itself is under a year I would take it back to the store. It sounds like the unit is not charging properly which you already know. Check to see if you actually have charge coming out of your charger. Usually there is a charge light. Is it bright when charging? If you have a volt meter you can check the voltage coming out of the charger to verify if there is indeed voltage coming out. Let me know what you discover.

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809. This thing is so dirty and clogged because my sister has pets. So far I've gotten it all taken apart to clean it. I'm not a newbie and taking apart and fixing things. I have fixed things like microwaves, washers, dryers, dishwashers (still learning about TV's-very hard, hehe). Anyway, I got what I believe to be the motor cover off.

That cover is the called the fan cover and is usually pressed on. Tapping on the edge with a flat blade, you may be able to get it off and hope you don't bend it up, you will to put it back on tight enough so it will stay in place. Another thing to ... Vacuums

HOOVER SAVVY This is less than a year old (yep, no receipt) and all of a sudden last night the vacuum turns off after a moment of running. Also the red and green lights do not work at all. I've thoroughly cleaned the bagless unit, and it still won't work. It powers on for a split second then turns itself off. Help please.

I had the same problem. Took it in and the repair shop they said it was the switch. It was an $18 switch and $30 labor.

I have a Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900 It has worked flawlessly until last week. The roller brush has stopped turning and I believe it is the belt that has broken but I am not sure how to remove the cover to inspect it and replace the belt if that is the problem. Please inform me how to perform the operation and what I should I look for? Is there a site with a diagram on how to replace said parts?

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci

Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Hi There I have got a Kirby 2 HG vaccum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from. I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

My Eureka/The Boss doesn't seem to have the suction power it had. However, when I place my hand under the hose, it has good suction, then when I try to pull in a small particle, it doesn't, unless I have the hose nozzle completely over the particle. The vac is 10 yrs. old. I cleaned everything. Someone said the belt. Would the belt matter if the hose doesn't **** well? It is just old and worn out? It did shut off recently do to overheating. Help. Thanks. Lorraine

Hi., If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, I have a Flair 3055 ventalation system in my house and over the last five years two fan motors have gone bad. it has been mickey moused together by a local repair man, and as of last week, it has died again.

My first proheat lasted four years so I bought a new one. After I used my Pro Heat for only the fourth time my first issue occured, the gear on the pump that runs the brushes came off, so I had the one from my old proheat, I just changed the gear spindle that is screwed to the pump and fixed that problem but now it will not pump water. That is why I bought a new proheat, I could not get the old one to pump even after a new pump and made sure all lines were not cloged.

The motor just went out on my 2 year old vacuum with light usage (hardwood floors in a very small house.) The Sears repairpeople are estimating ~ $130 to fix (this includes parts & labor). I'm wondering if it's worth investing $130 into something i've spent $350 on only 2 years ago. Shouldn't these machines last longer ? Is there something I could do to get them repair free as it seems the motor must have been faulty to only have lasted 2 years. Thoughts ?

My 8 yr old kenmore vacuum works well - however the hose has worn under the handle where there is a hole (resulting in decreased suction power). I'd like instructions on opening the handle and bypassing the worn piece of tubing rather than replacing it for $129. Some of the handle screws remove easily but the last one doesn't loosen easily.

Hi,Have you tried spraying the stubborn screw with WD40 and let it soaked for a while? Other than these screws holding the handle together, there would no other way of opening it up. Hope this be of initial help/idea. ... Kenmore Vacuums
