Having problems with your iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum ?

I have a new scoba (irobot) the battery is charged the tanks were fillied and every time i hit the power button and then clean the machines "check the tank" light came on. i have done all the proper instruction checks an i have done all the trouble shooting section. the machine will only work (and that is for 5 minutes drying its head) when i hit power and the clean button twice. so obviously the machine is somewhat working

I have a hoover windtunnel platinum. I have changed the bag ( hepa Q bag) but the bag light wont reset. so the vaccum wont turn on. I have unpluged it and let it set for a while with the new bag in and repluged it in. I have checked the brushes and it is all clean but it will not reset. This only the second bag so it is a new machine I should not be having problems. Is there some sore of reset button I can hit.

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>

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
