Answers :

The belt probably broke and needs replaced. Make sure you get a new belt made for that model to use. Steps for replacement depends on what model you have, and are found in the manual. You should be able to find a manual for your machine using the Dirt Devil site below.

Hoover Model U8185-900 beater bar part keeps smoking and burning up We've replaced the part Hoover PCB Display Bridge U8172 three times and the vac beater bar works for about a minute then the part starts to smoke and burns out again. I've taken everything apart but cannot locate anything that would cause this part to burn up. I think if I did not disconnet immediately, he vac would catch my rug on fire. Help? I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest

I'm not sure why this is happening. Perhaps if you would contact Hoover and explain the problem to them such that it appears that there is a safety issue with their product, they might be more cooperative. If that fails, I have had luck writing let ... Hoover U8185-900 Upright Vacuum

Hello, I have a Riccar 8000. The belt works, the bar spins, and it will **** things up. However, it will not pick up threads and dog hair or anything from the carpeting. Mu husband took the bottom off and there were a couple of small parts on the plate. We have no idea where they belong. Could not see them in the photos in the manual. Could it possibly need a new roller? Any help would be most welcome. Thank you! Mary Simon

My electric toothbrush doesnt work any more even though I have only used it a dozen times. I have obviously tried to charge it, but with no result.I disposed of all the packaging when I started using it so I dont have the guarantee. I bought it from Tesco in Roundhay Rd., Leeds 8. roun about Christmas time. I would be grateful if you could help me with this matter. Yours sincerely, Mrs. L.E.Glenn

My Dear Chap. It is highly unlikely that you can exercise any type of warrenty for the toothbrush without the documentation. That is, a reciept at the least. Packaging would have helped, but the receipt is the key.\012What you can do is try to ... Vacuums

I have a DC25 that I just bought in Dec 10. The last few times I vacuumed the carpet, the beater bar worked on and off. Now it does not move at all. I took off the beater bar to see if there were any obstructions, but there were none. Could you please help me with this. Right now my husband is saying that we should not have bought such an expensive vacuum (which he has said all along). I want to prove him wrong!! Up til a couple of weeks ago, it was working perfectly and I have loved it!

This is a good quality machine which I am sure wil last a long time in answer to your question make sure that the setting is set for carpet and not just flooring ..the head needs to be flat on the floor for the beater to work .I am assuming that thi ... Dyson DC25 All Floors Bagless Upright Vacuum

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.

For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!

I have a Howard Miller Westminster Chime Mantle Clock. It has always worked fine. It stopped working and my husband took the battery out to change it and when the new battery is in it will not work. It is Model 613-=103 movt 354201J dial 272142J. The part you put the battery in almost looks too big for one double A but I can't see how two would fit. I am afraid the battery is just not in right. Can you help me with how many batteries go in this clock or if it is one what the problem could be.

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

Cord replacement I need to replace a damaged cord (the reel works). How do I get the top off so I can remove the back end? Once I get it off, will I be able to change the cord, or do I need to buy the whole reel assembly? (and thanks for the help - I love this site!)

You will probably have to replace the whole reel cord. Depending on your model, on each side, there is a bar in the middle that will slide off, then the 2 halfs will come apart. They will only slide in one direction. If an older model, there are s ... Electrolux Lux 5500 Canister Vacuum

I also have a Hoover upright and I need to replace the electrical cord. I have dimantled the back, where the tools are stored, and the hose. I still cannot find the screws or whatever, to get to the area behind the cord, so I can replace it. I think I will have to take off the bottom too. Has anyone out there tried to do this? It seems crazy. This machine works great so I hope I can also put it back together. Thanks for the help.

Since I do not know your specific model I can only supply you with general instructions. Be aware that most of the time you only need to gain access to the on/off switch to replace the power cord. Also Make sure that you are replacing the existing co ... Vacuums

I just bought a foldaway hoover with wide path. I plugged it in and started to vacuum and dust flew everywhere. Walmart would not give me my money back so they gave me another hoover foldaway with the wide path. I thought this one might work. This one does the same thing. It blows dust out the sides and you can't vacuum with it. Any help would be great.

Your Vac probably does not have a filter installed inside the unit, that is why fine dust escapes through the vents. Remove the dirt canister/cup from the unit and you will see a filter frame behind.
