\015\012Hello,
\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012I checked with some of my contacts in the vacuum business and they told me that it may not be a United States vacuum and it might be a Canadian or European vacuum and may not be customer friendly to service, if you have a contact with a MAC or Snap On dealer or a metric auto store – as far as the green light on the powerhead the green light is supposed to let you know if the carpet is clean and the red light is supposed to be that the carpet is dirty, and laos it could be that your belt is loose and needs changing – a suggested belt change is every 4 to 6 months --- show them the screw and they might have something to fit or release the screw head, as per the removing of the wheel and replacing the electric cable, check with your local vac dealer or you may want to check with the Dyson dealer website and or phone # listed below:

I have a Kenmore Progressive upright model 216-37100800. It is only around 1.5 years old. My wife said that one day after she plugged it and turned it on, it whirred up but then shut off. Since then it will not start. I have noticed that right after I plug it in, if I try to turn it on, the first yellow light in the series of dirt sensor lights turns on then shuts off. After that the light will not light up on pressing the power button, unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. I have seen o

Is it possible to have FOUR bad "new" starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No

I have just purchased a new Swan Teasmade model STM100N having had a Goblin teasmade for many years. I find when the lights are out in the bedroom there is a strong blue light all around the teasmade even though I slightly dim the clock face with the cover provided. I can't sleep and have to turn off at the mains so have not been able to use it so far. Before I return to the supplier, is there anything I can do to get rid of all the light surrounding the teasmade.
