I have a Eureka Mega Boss Central Vac Model # CV1801P. The suction works when the handle button is pushed left (floor mode) but no suction happens when the button is pushed right. When the floor attachment is hooked up and the button is pushed right, the brush rotates, but there is no suction.

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?

My shark steamer has stopped working after a year of having it (I have already replaced one, I'm a idiot!). My problem; however, is that it will steam, but the steam stops traveling through the actual "mop" part. I plugged it in, wait seconds and start pumping, but the steam builds up until it's hard to pump. I had to press the button really hard for the bottom to come off and it shot off like a rocket! I tried to stick something through the tubing, but it did nothing. What am I doing wrong? I

Telescopic wand My wife's Electrolux Oxygen has a telescoping wand that expanded and contracted. All one had to do was slide a button and the lower tube slid inside the larger upper tube. Now the button no longer moves whatever was inside to allow the expansion/contraction to happen. How do I fix this situation? The wand assembly hardly seems to be made with repairs in mind. This method of manufacturing is annoying. Thanks, Eric

Hi, I have a Casio fx-115s scientific calculator which I've had for around 25 years. I am unable to use the bracket function and have lost the instructions. Could you please give any advice to save me having to buy a new calculator? I'm not sure how to use the brackets, whenever I press the ( ) buttons, it shows -E- on the screen which I'm presuming is an error message. Please help.

Hello, On the 24 of June 2010 I purchased an Oregon Scientific Solar weather Station with indoor humidity gadget in Budapest Hungary. I opened it and tried to put it in function only 10 days ago,at the end of November,because I had another one(not exactly the same),which I had had for several years and I wanted to change. I live in Israel. After I read the instructions I did everything I had read,but the outdoor temperature doesn't show off and the clock isn't correct either. What should

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a

There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

While using, steam stopped coming out in force at the port levels in the head. Suddenly started high pitch whining, pressed button just above connection site and end flew off with great force pouring water onto floor and carpet.

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try?

My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t
