The Petmate powerhead roller stopped rotating. I checked for anything binding it - nothing. There is power getting to it, just no rotation. As the guy said in the post above, it's like it is locked into the plastic housing, although it just worked last time I used the powerhead. Help!

I was cleaning my carpet using my hoover steamvac ls. I had already changed the water 3 times. The last time, the water ran out and I kept running it for a couple of minutes trying to **** up some of the water off the carpet when it just shut down. I check the breaker and the outlet and they were OK. Checked my manual for troubleshooting; couldn't find an answer there. Do you think I burned the motor up (I didn't smell anything) or will I have to send it in for repair? When I clicked on your web

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

I just received My brand new hoover platinum lightweight upright UH30010 (with canister) which I ordered through ebay and today is just the SECOND time I used it but the check bag light indicator is already flashing. My husband and I live in a 1 bedroom (695 sq t) apartment (no kids or pets). I checked the bag and the dirt is just maybe two inches - far from the limit line showing on the bag..and I remembered the advertisement on TV that it can even last upto to six months depending on the usage


I have the same problem. If it was just an indicator light I could live with it, but mine actually shuts the vacuum off. I can only run the vacuum for 3-5 seconds before it turns itself off. Any ideas? ... Hoover Platinum Collection Upright Vacuum

Kirby Sentria Hi, I have a new Sentria & used it for the first time today. It was going fine & then I could smell smoke & it started to make a loud noise so I turned it off quickly. If I turn it on it immediately starts making the noise again & I can see it is all lit up inside like something is burning or sparking. I have checked the roller & it is moving & I have checked the fan which is moving & doesn't appear to be damaged in anyway. This product is from the US & we are in the UK & we are us


Sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz. usually when a vac is brought to eu ... Kirby Vacuums

I purchased a nordic microwave popcorn maker and misplaced the directions for making the popcorn. I need to know how much popcorn to put in the bowl and amount of oil if any is to be used.

I have a Bissell ProHeat 2x, and I did something dum. I had some powdered cleaner that said it works with carpet cleaners-well I mixed it in-and the next time I tried to use it, nothing came out. So, I took it part to check what was wrong-and found out that the powdered cleaner solidified in places. I cleared the nozzels, nothing. I think the solenoid, between the heater and nozzels is pluggd, and possibly the heater. I've got a question-could I use CLR to clean the heater, with replacing t


Heck yeah, give it a shot. Try running some water through it too- fill it up, heat it just to where it's hot and unplug it, shake it around and dump it out. Repeat. You might have to get a wire or something to go through and get the powder loosened b ... Bissell Vacuums

Our Winsdor Sensor XP12 does not show any power or lights, I did check the handle connection, it was fine.

I just bought a Hoover Platinum Collection MaxExtract Carpet Cleaner (Model No. F8100900). This is the first time I've used it and got half way through one room and the unit cut off and has no power at all. No lights anywhere. On/Off button is inoperable. I checked the outlet and it's still operating so it's not a circuit breaker issue. The problem appears to be with the machine. Has anyone heard of this happening this quickly? Is there a reset button on the machine>

I have a new STEAM VAC Dual V All Terrain Carpet and Hardwood Cleaner. I have used it once and it worked well. Now, the second time, I have no water return.

Over heated Smke suddenly started coming out of the handle. I have used this cleaner my second time now. I checked everything, and after awhile, it will not come on.


In the handle are a heater, transmission and a circuit board. If you have smoke come out and now it doesn't work, I would suspect the circuit board of being bad. If this is less then 2 years old, then it is still under warranty.\015\012IF ... Bissell 7950 ProHeat Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
