Hi! I have a Eureka Maxima (used, belt broken) I just figured how to open. his opens from the top. Two screws on the top are loosened with a phillips head and the cover gently pried off with a flat head. Belt was easy to put on. I sat on floor and braced unit with my feet to pull the roller withthe belt attached to it's appropritate slot. I hope this helps. Good luck! I hope this works for me and you! Betty

I have the yellow altima vac. for a while now I can not get the darn thing to pick up properly. Or should i say keep it up.. The vac does seem to be getting everything picked up but as soon as you turn it off, you have a mess under the vac.. I have checked for clogks and can't seem to find any.. I have removed the hose, Nothing there.. And yep have removed the yellow thing inside the trash cup.. Is there anything else you could suggest??

If it smells hot, then there's a strain on the motor no doubt about it. Check the suction channel behind the sole plate and remove all of the hoses to check for a clog. It could well be that there is a clog inside the machine after the dust channel f ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses just as it fully closes and then the lights start to blink again. I checked for obstructions and tried to reset the limits of travel per the manual, it still does the same thing. Any ideas on what to try next?

This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due ... Vacuums

Panasonic NN-SD776S microwave Start button stopped working. I know, the first thought is a bad door switch because "everyone knows a microwave should not turn on if the door is open." I am experienced with electronics, but even the timer won't start at all. Funny thing is, I had this exact model do this exact thing just over 2 years ago - troubleshot all the hardware until I was lost, finally bought a new one from Costco (June 4/08). And now 2 years later this one craps out - a 2 year timer

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

My Dyson just stopped sucking up dirt. I have checked all the obvious things like clogs and filters. I noticed when I turn it on, there is a valve on the top of the cannister that opens and you can feel suction from the vent hole. Is this valve malfunctioning, or is it working correctly because something else is malfunctioning?

My Dyson DC24 sucked in a backpack strap and tripped. I then decided to pull out the brush and clean off whatever else happened to be clung onto it and put it back in. The darn thing doesn't turn anymore. Everyone says to push the reset button in until a click is heard but I put in a bit of force and I haven't heard a click so I stopped because I didn't want to break it. Is there something I haven't checked or do I keep adding force?

No suction I've only had my vacuum for a couple of months and it seem I have a similar problem but there is no clear blockage.

I have a Eureka Maxima, this was a gift to me, but I have to say it is the worst vacuum I have ever used.

No suction vacuum won't pick up -- I've checked the bag, hose...and it seems to have no sucking power. The internal hose may be jammed (I vacuumed up a lot of shredded paper), but nothing as far as I can stick in fingers in. I don't have a metal coat hanger to slip down, but I'm afraid that might tear the hose and then the darn thing won't work anyway. :o(

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.
