Having problems with your Dc25 ?
Turns off in uoright position.
While using my vacuum today in both positions with the hose and the floor mode it suddenly turned off when standing back up in the lock position. The motor completely shut off and the hose cannot be engaged tried everything from checking clogged hoses emptying filter and turning it over and taking a good look at everything but I am still stumped. I am an electrician and am not shy to opening things up and tinkering so some guidance would be terrific. Thanks in advance for any help. Chris

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?

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?

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.

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?
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
