Having problems with your Fantom Vacums FM780 Twister 700LX Upright Vacuum ?
Power goes on and off while in use
\015 My Fantom FM780 will power itself on and off while vacuuming. It's probably a loose power connection, but I don't know where to look... can you help?\015
There really isnt anywere on that machine for a "loose" power connection. You probally have a short in the electrical wiring. Your local vac shop should be able to locate the short and replace the wire.

Roomba Schedular I have a Roomba Scheduler and it has worked great until recently. Suddenly it quit working. When it is charging the power light goes from red to green as it should, showing it is ready to use. When we turn it on to use, it will only go on for a few seconds then it shuts off like it is out of power. It is like it isn't really charged. Is there something I can try to make it work?
Let it charge for a full 24, or even 48 hours, regardless of the green light. If it still dies you probably need a new battery.. or worse. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

The power goes off and on when using my vacuum. When I push my vacuum forward, intermittently it loses power.
Almost certainly there's a broken wire within the electric flex. This usually happens where there's most bending and pulling - that is, where the flex enters the machine or where it enters the plug. You'll need to get someone to either shorten the fl ... Vacuums
The mechanism that rolls back in the power cord seems to be working slower and sometimes not at all. Was wondering if the mechanism in question has an adjustment to increase the tension on it so the power cord goes in faster like it used to. Thanks Rafael

I have a B60 Special edition Keurig. I turned the power on and the "not ready" indicator just never goes away. Consequently when I insert the k-cup and pull the lever down to activate, none of the lights flash so I cannot select or brew. The machine is out of warfranty - but it is only 2 years old. Surely I should get more mileage out of it. I use Britta filtered water in it...

Hi, I have a canister Kenmore vacuum with power head. Everytime I use it, it smells sour. Its strong and like FEET with bad odor. My old Kenmore did the same thing but I used it anyway...because the power was great. We don't have feet problems or pets. The carpeting was new when we bought this vacuum.
Moisture/humidity mixed with organic dust (like sloughed skin cells) can cause the smell you describe in vacuums. I recommend that you purchase scented granules that are placed inside of the vacuum bag. Do not buy Carpet Fresh because the fine powd ... Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!
