Answers :

This will be one of, or both of, the following.
\015\012Bad battery will not take a charge and cause this condition.
\015\012NOW... Why will it not take a charge. either the battery is bad, and CAN'T take the charge the machine is giving. OR the charging circuit is fired on the main board. Sometimes a bad charging circuit will also cook your battery causing both to be screwed.
\015\012But it is a common problem with the board going bad. Some people purchase an external charger for the battery and then swap it into the roomba when charged. But this kinda defeats the automated controls. The fried charging circuit also will drain the battery when it isn't turned on. I have repaired a number of charging circuits on these units

The motor in the power head ran at a higher pitch for a for 8 to 10 seconds then stopped. If I push the reset button the powerhead may or may not start or it may start and run for a few seconds. The brush is not caught.

Did you check the belt? A broken belt results in lower strain on the motor, causing it to run faster resulting in the faster speed and higher pitch. This could result in overheating, which will cause the motor to shut off.\015\012If this isn' ... Electrolux C101 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Good evening, I have a Xio Z1010 electrolux vaacum cleaner and I hope you'll be able to give me some advice. The vacuum cannot be started. Last time it started for a few seconds and stopped suddenly. Something similar happened long time ago but that was due to overheating. Once cooled down in few hours it would start again. It is not the case now after 24 hours. Could you give me any idea what could be the reason? Your help would be much appreciated. Adorian

My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes.

My shark steamer has stopped working after a year of having it (I have already replaced one, I'm a idiot!). My problem; however, is that it will steam, but the steam stops traveling through the actual "mop" part. I plugged it in, wait seconds and start pumping, but the steam builds up until it's hard to pump. I had to press the button really hard for the bottom to come off and it shot off like a rocket! I tried to stick something through the tubing, but it did nothing. What am I doing wrong? I
