The spinner that shows that the suction or water is pumping out on the floor will not spin. I have checked the belts they are ok. I have turned it off for a few min. and it doesnt work.
The belts may look fine but they can be stretched or worn. If you haven't replaced them recently I would try that. You can get the belt you need here: ... Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum
I have an Oreck canister vacuum, it says fc1000 on the bottom sticker, it's red. My problem is that the suction in it works perfectly, the belt is ok, and the roller can turn, but the motor doesnt turn it when I turn on the power.
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 Eureka Power Plus vacuum, model 4702, type A. To start off, it never really had great suction. Marginal at best. Then today I was vacuuming and smelled something burning and turned off the vacuum. At that point, smoke started pouring out from the bottom of the vacuum so I layed it on it's side and the smoke cleared but I never found the source. Is it safe to turn on again after I let it cool down or is my vacuum "shot?"

I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice? I really like this vacuum and would really like to fix it rather than replace it!

Pfaff Creative 1459. When trying to wind a bobbin, I do what I've always done, turn the small round "wheel" on the right, slide the bobbing into the little knob that keeps it in place and gently press the foot thing on the floor that should start the bobbing to winding. The bobbin does not turn at all causing a loud whirring sound and the needle goes up and down as if it were making stitches. I finally got some thread onto the bobbin but it is not smooth and looks like a spider. I really nee
MOST of the time, the brush will not turn. Sometimes it does when I mess with the carpet heighth knob. I really don't think that a belt is broken, otherwise it would never turn. Any ideas??

Roomba Discovery My Roomba turns on and moves but the brushes won't turn. Someone told me that I had forgotten to put in the yellow and black end bearings, but I did. Help, I miss my Roomba I have a Roomba 530, I have had it for 2 weeks and really loved it. I have followed all the cleaning instructions etc.. Then the Roomba wanted it's brushes cleaning "please clean Roombas brushes" So thinking that something was stuck I removed and cleaned the brushes, (yellow tabs on and in place by the way)
I read somewhere that you need to clear the software in case there is a glitch. To do this, take the battery out and then, simultaneously hold down the "spot" and "clean" buttons for 30 seconds. Replace battery. This has worked for my Discovery model ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I have a Dirt Devil Vision self-propelled vacuum cleaner. Recently, the self-propelled feature is stuck in the backward mode, so it only goes backwards! I can get it to go forward if I push really hard (i guess it is good for a workout!). I try to turn off the propel feature completely, but it will not turn off. please help!

My Texas Insturment TI 30X IIS calculator won't turn on at all. I tried pressing the restart button but it still doesnt turn on.
I noticed that the little side brush doesn't turn anymore and the Dirt Dog stops about every minute now so I have to keep turning it back on! I have dismantled the brushes and cleaned everything out but that didn't help at all. It doesn't really come apart any more than that for cleaning. Any suggestions as to where my problems may lie?
