Having problems with your Dyson DC15 All Floors - The Ball Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Cord kinks up and the outer covering is starting to peal

\015 I have a dyson "ball" vacuum. The cord is constantly kinking up..really bad...and the covering is starting to come off of it. Also have a complaint about the extension....not nearly long enough...and is cumbersome to use.\015

Answers :

Contact the manufacturer about the cord...you may have some kind of  a defect.  If they don't think so, you can replace the cord.  You may use a quality extension cord with the unit.  It should be rated at least 20 amps and be a 14 gauge or lower number.

Rule 1800 Pool Cover Pump With Leaf Protector 110v not running. Pump had a partially severed electrical cord which I repaired. I have cleaned out the pump for debris (took off outer parts). I still get nothing when I plug it in. Impeller is somewhat hard to turn but I can find nothing impeding it. Thoughts?


Most likely the shaft bearing is seized up and not allowing the impeller to turn. Pull the bottom odd till you can spin the impeller by hand and use some penetrating oil around the shaft turn it by hand a few times and then with it still apart plugg ... Vacuums

Bosch canister vac BSG81313. Took cover off to remove lots of hair, dirt etc from running without bag in place. Everything went back together OK, but cord reel spring went zip when cover was removed.

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor.

Could I have a short in my cord? I can vacuum & then when I move the canister it shuts off, if I wiggle the cord it will turn back on. This last time, it just revs like a car trying to start & then does nothing. I live in a VERY remote area (80 miles from nearest Wal-Mart or McDonalds) so I know I will not be able to find someone to repair this for me. I have great doubt that I will be able to do it myself & my husband is an accountant so he is unavailable for another 6 weeks!!!!! Any suggestion

I just purchased a black and decker corded hand vac/blower/inflator. I plugged it in (for the first time ever) it started and then shut off immediately. I tried different outlets thinking it blew a circuit in the first one. However it still won't start. Very frustrating!


Unfortunately those units are prone to breakage they are also usually a sealed unit (not able to take apart). The best thing to do would be take it back where you bought it and try to get your money back. They just aren't worth fixing. V ... Black & Decker Vacuums

Hoover Vacuum My Hoover cannister model s3614 "runabout powermax" suddenly lost power to the agitator roller in the rug brush. Where the wire cord enters the power brush, the covering has rubbed off exposing the wires which are not bare but still have their own covering. For a while the power came and went as I manipulated the wires but finally died. Is this something I can fix myself or is it going to be an expensive professional repair? (Warrantee has elapsed.)
