Loose wire ive got a loose wire inside my vax cyclonic 1700w and ive stripped it down but cant see anything and its still not working but it was working when i moved the wire from side to side. Please help


Sounds to me like you have a open wire. There is a break in the wire inside to the insulation and as you move it, it gains and loses connection. You can test it with a continuity tester as you move the wire or just replace it to see if that solves th ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

Help Hi I have had my irobot roomba model 4000 now for 3 months now, I just LOVE it sooo much. I have used it everyday since I got it. But now it is not working. I cleaned it all out I even sprayed it with that air spray can. What happens is, It starts to go then it acts like there is something in the way and stops then goes the other way, then goes off. What is wrong? Please help!!!

My Tim Horton's (Bunn) Coffee Maker won't stop boiling the water really hard (to the point where it practically boils the full pot away). When I go to make coffee the next time it's boiled so hard that it doesn't give me a whole pot of coffee just like 3/4 of a pot, and if I haven't used it in like a day it's boiled it down to half a pot??... it's beginning to make me angry, as I have cleaned it in the past for this trouble, but it doesn't help or make a difference. Can somebody please help me??

I have a Hoover linx cordless stick vac. I have not had it but several months and it has quit sucking anything up. It worked great when I first got it. I was so excited at how well it worked. It had gotten hair wrapped around the brushes but I got that out and thought it would work better. It is turning and sounds like it is working but it does not pick it up. I could use your help please. Keely

I have a panasonic mc-ul975 vacuum that works great when working properly. the airflow through the canister seems to stops once the aero blast technology is done running which causes the vacuum to not function as it should (does not have as much suction and the hose/tool accessories do not work at all). if air is continually running through the canister everything seems fine. please help!

Hoover F7431-900 my carpet shampooer/steam vac was working fine until the brushes at the bottom of it just miraculously stopped working. they wont spin at all. Is this a motor problem? perhaps a water flow problem? please write back if you can be of any help. thanks


If the screen is not dirty, and the flapper valve to the turbine inlet is open, then the problem is mostly a stuck turbine impeller. The turbine impeller on my F7431-900 has seized TWICE!! The shaft for the turbine is not made of stainless steel, t ... Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum

Brushes stopped The brushes stopped turning while using the cleaner. I removed the brushes to see if the spindle was broken, it wasn't. I then removed the top plastic cover and checked the switch that engages the brushes; it didn't seem to be moving correctly. There's one spring on the switch - should there be two? Or do you think something has broken on the inside? Thanks for any help


Most likely the turbine is bad, it may just be clogged up, you can take it apart and clean it out real good. That may work, but it may not. Sometimes it is best to replace the turbine. ... Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine. I've tried soaking it in hot water and soaking it with cleaning solutions. They have not worked. If I blow into the connection piece, no air goes through. That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.


I had the same issue with the rectangular mop and corrected it by disassembling the tube from the rectangular piece. There are two screws that will need to be removed in order to get access to the connector. Once the connector is removed from the rec ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

We have a series 90S, 2.5 gallon Shop Vac. We used it for the first time to try and **** up water in the basement. Each time we turned it on, it would shut down after collecting less than 1" of water. We had to remove and squeeze out the foam sleeve each time, before it would work again (nowhere near 2.5 gallons!). Any ideas? Is the plastic sleeve that can move up and down inside, the float (poorest manual I've ever seen!)? Should there be a ball float that we're missing? Thanks for any s
