Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?

I sucked up a sock I think its in the hose but I am not sure can you help me slove the problem?


Answers :

Try using a broom handle and push it out the the same end that it came in. If that doesn't work, straighten a metal coat hanger and make a small hook on the end of it. Reach in and grab it.

Good Luck!

NO POWER My Dyson DCO4 Absolute (purple&lime) won't' switch on. I've checked the plug fuse, wall socket and also filters and hoses on machine all seem fine so think the problem is with the on/off button (maybe loose wire or something) but how do i get to it, is there a special way to remove the green on/off button in order to check the connection? Thankyou in advance for the help i am sure you will be able to provide.


The problem is almost certainly a fatigue break in the flex. These usually happen where the flex enters the handle through the rubber sleeve near the on off switch. You will need to cut about four inches off the wire and reconnect it to the switch. ... Vacuums

I have a Bernina 930 sewing machine. I read the advice from "dogdanes" about the basting unit seizing up and I think this is my problem. It has happened once before, and I NEVER use the thing, so I think it's frozen. My flywheel won't turn. Can you help me fix this? I have a sewing business and can't afford to have my Bernie in the shop for weeks. Thanks. Maripat


Hi marjpatv,With your Bernina 930 sewing machine where the flywheel won't turn and seems like it's frozen, sounds like it needs some oiling. You may want to try having it oiled first since it could be a possible cause of this issue. You m ... Vacuums

Hi i hae a star product whipper sniper and i cant get it to go i hae spark i hae fuel but it seems as if there is no fuel getting to cylinder i think it is a problem with my carby the serial no is fcb12071 please help rectify my problem cheers


One thing that you can try is to remove the carb from the unit and spray it down with carb cleaner -- maybe it is blocked (?),,, one more thing to try would be to see if it will fire using ether. there could also be something wrong with the fuel dia ... Vacuums

We have a GE Advantium 120 microwave. all sounds like the unit is working all controls work. it does not heat at all. I have the shelds off and do not see any problems. what do you think is the problem and how do I test for it? thank you for your help.


If the unit works but it doesn't heat then the magnetron isn't working. The only way t test it is to measure the 2 voltages that power it: the heating coil - 5 volts AC and the high tension - 5000 volts DC. While you can measure the heating voltage ... GE Vacuums

My problem is the brush on the bottom is not spinning and i think there is no suction from the bottom of the vacuum my rugs are in need of a vacuum and i 'm not sure what is going on - also nothing is going into the canister


Is there a shaft driving the brush, or is there a belt on this one? Are they intact and working properly? It could be possible that the motor isn't moving which would cause no suction or brush movement. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Kenmore canister model (116) 26212601 works in hard-surface mode (basic suction), but the brush won't spin for carpets, and when I try to turn it on, it makes a whiny sound and then turns off as it does when I need to press the overload button. I looked inside a bit, and the belt isn't broken--it seems fine. So not sure what the problem is. Thanks for any help.

The light won't turn on, neither will the mop. Have had it for 2-3 years and has always worked beautifully with no problems. Used it last week and worked fine; unplugged to fill with more water and never turned on again. Since light is not turning on, not sure what to do. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks! Yvette

I have a Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900 It has worked flawlessly until last week. The roller brush has stopped turning and I believe it is the belt that has broken but I am not sure how to remove the cover to inspect it and replace the belt if that is the problem. Please inform me how to perform the operation and what I should I look for? Is there a site with a diagram on how to replace said parts?

My Bissell Quicksteamer Model 1960-R won't spray cleaning solution. I have cleaned it and taken apart the whole thing. I can't find any problems. The holes are not cloged where the water comes out as I disconnected it and blew through it to be sure. The lines show water trying to go through. It is as if it doesn't have enough power to pump the water out when I squeeze the trigger. I am thinking it is the pump thing but can't find a replacement part for it.

There is no power...seems like a motor problem. The bag is clean...the mouth is clean the plug us in...NOTHING! I took mouth off and manipulated/pushed in that power press area that engages the motor on the front (not the switch on the back) and NOTHING! Not sure if motor died and/or what to do now. Help. I have had this baby for 15 years.


The front safety switch must be pushed in by either the hose or head (or manually), before the on/off switch will operate. The most common reason for no power is a bad cord. Second most common is worn carbons in the motor, and third is a bad switch. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Good day, I took off the cover on a proheat upright, to install the suction diverter flap. Guy at the shop told me I had to do this but I don't think it was really necessary. Anyway, I am having a real job getting the cover back on. The shampoo mix piston seems to be causing the problem seating the two halves correctly. I see no obvious "right: way to put the piston back in. can anybody help me. Thanks Richard


Hey Richard. Turn the shampoo mix dial so the spiral is all the way at the top when you are looking at it from underneath. then, you want the piston to seat in the top groove of the knob. You want the piston's end that jets out to fit in the space ... Vacuums

The electricity in the apt attached to my house lost power in two of the walls. It happened when the cleaning ladies I think were using a vacuum, they don't speak english very well so I'm not sure. I have looked at the circuit breaker a # of times and nothing seems to have been tripped. I have also inspected the outlets and they seem to be fine. Can you help me?


Even know the breaker doesn't look tripped it might be. You have to flip it all the way off and then back on again. That is most likely what has happened. If that doesn't work check to make sure a GFI hasn't tripped. They are usually loc ... Vacuums

Lost Suction This is my second hoover steamvac and i am having the same problem with my new one as i did with the old one that i tossed out. I have used it about 12 times and it worked great the first 6 times... Now i'll empty a full tank of water and only half will get sucked back up. I have tried taking it apart and cleaning and also the rubber seal had some gaps so i sealed those thinking that it was leaking air from there...can anyone help? I am so close to chucking this one and buying somet


Usually when there is no suction, one cause is the lid to the recovery tank is not on all of the way in the back.

Hello, I just bought a Bissell Powergroom (model 92L3-W) vacuum and a Bissell Proheat Pet (model 8910-3) deep cleaner and I love them both.
