Yeap..... i just found a fix for this ,, its mad how easy it is to fix as well...and it works 100%,,,
\015\012now dyson implemented a filter magnetic switch if u take your filter off you will see a small magnet in the corner,, u will notice where the magnet is behind it is rased platic,, now,,that the problem on the main board the transistor that picks up magentic signal from the filter is dud,!
\015\012dont ask me why it happens,, its a pain i know.,.
\015\012now take off collection pot for dust now take battery off.
\015\012
\015\012now where the serial number is theres 2 hex screws that need taking out..
\015\012
\015\012now u will see a small pcb board.. remove with one tiny security screw holding it in,, once removed pull both red plug off thats the digital motor plug.. and white plug which is vcc..to battery,, once u have done this pull the board down and back gently. as there is a long bit of board that goes up the back of the dyson plastic be very carefull pull this out.. now the long and thin pcb board that is hidden is what we need there is a tiny transistor,,, we need to remove this carefully..once removed,, we solder a thin wire from 2 point A+C need to be soldered together with a thin piece of wire, it will not harm the motor.. as long as u keep it clean,,
\015\012
\015\012 these points corolate to the transistor,,
\015\012
\015\012 A
\015\012
\015\012 B C
\015\012
\015\012SOLDER AND A+C WITH A FINE PIECE OF WIRE NOW,, AND WALLAH... fixed put it all back together again,,, charge the battery,, and your away,,, working again,, if not u have other faults.. but 99% fix this with flashing red led,,,!!
For those of us whose eyes glaze over at the mention of a soldering iron, I have an alternative suggestion. The problem appears to be that the magnet is just barely large enough when brand new...so as it ages, it can't hold the switch in place when the vacuum is being used. I took a small drill bit and from the back side pushed the magnet out, drilled the hole larger and pressed in a much larger, rare earth magnet. Voila! Problem solved.

Glad I found this thread.

My irobot scooba does not spray cleaning solution out after about the first 30 seconds it is running. I have tried all the suggestions in this post with the suction bulb to charge with air, and then with water to clean it out. water does come out of both valves when forced with the bulb or immediately after using the bulb to charge it. then after it runs for about 30 seconds the floor is dry.

I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci


Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

My robot will not charge. Tried multiple resets and new battery from irobot.com (both suggested by Irobot customer service) but got nowhere. The vacuum did work for a short time (until the new partially charged battery ran out). If I bypass the internal charging circuits and charge directly from the charger (with jumpers) the robot seems to work fine. Unfortunatey, there is no mechanism to turn off the charge cycle, so this is not practical.

Roomba scheduler Roomba goes to charger, charges, then looses charge before it can be run again. The charge also takes six or more hours. The unit has only been used 4 times. Any help? Thank you, Cynthia Murphy.

I installed a new battery in my Roomba 540. It charges and runs directly with power cord but will not charge on dock. When I push the dock button, it acts like it "sees" the dock and approaches it and even slides on, but then gets back off again and just keeps going back and forth until I turn it off.

No suction My Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum runs but there is no suction. The last two or three times I used it, it shut itself off after having a burning smell. When I unplug it for the suggested 30 minutes, the motor will run again but no suction. What is wrong?? Should I just buy a nve one? This one is 8 years old.


Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. This is generally indicated by the motor overheating, and the heat transferring out through the motor pulley, which is where the belt attaches. So, your machine is overheating, melting the belt, and then ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

Asking again. Better wording? My lightweight Bissell carpet shampooer is continually spraying cleaning solution. The sucking action works well but can't keep up. This unit does NOT HAVE A HEATER. This is a simple unit. Is there a cable going down the handle from the trigger? ( it feels like that's the way it works. Could the drain be plugged. Also it will only use 1/2 a tank of solution at a time. Then must be filled again

Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

Can this be left charging all the time when it is not being used or do we need to wait until it is fully run down before we charge it?

I posted my problem earlier today that I was having with my Bissell Little Green Machine not dispensing solution, but sucked up no problem. Someone said that the most common problem was a blockage. We put hot water in the reservoir for 15 minutes as advised and it still will not dispense. The fluid is now ''dribbling''so it is better. It is just not spraying. We are able to blow from the end and make bubbles in the reservoir which shows us it is not blocked. Any other suggestions?


Okay. I fixed this on mine. Undo the screws on the handle, right by the trigger. You pull the tubes off the little valve. Push on the button and see if you can blow through the valve. If not, push a pin around in the valve (with it pushed into the ... Bissell 1720-1 Little Green Wet/Dry Vacuum
