Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

I bought a G4 home care system in 1996. The motor broke down a few years after that. I do not know where to send it for repair. I have kept it since then. I wander whether I can still send it for repair now. I live in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia.

I havethe first generation purple Dyson Animal model. The brush rotates fine, but doesn't make sufficient contact with the floor/carpet, therefore does not pick up most items on carpets (suction still works however). If I put my foot on it and push down a little, it works. However, since I'm not an accomplished acrobat, this is not easy to do. :-) Any suggestions on whether this is fixable? Or should I just save up to buy a new one?

I have 2 coleman with double mantle. I have only use it 3 times since I bought it. Since then, I am unable to make both of them start. I have used locally sold petrol. I am wondering whether it is due to the poor quality of petrol or not. In the beginning, I tried to start it with alcohool since I did not know what kind of fuel to use. On the manual, it says that we have to use a special kerozene. But people familiar to Coleman lamp say that petrol should be fine since our old parents hav

Hello, I have an Electrolux vacuum. In desperation, I vacuumed up some water and my machine stopped. I am hesitant to take the machine to a repair place for fear that if it is a simple repair they will not be honest. Can anyone give me advice on whether this is a problem that requires a new motor or major repair? Thank you!

Although it's never to be recommended, it is sometimes possible to vacuum up a little water without doing significant damage. However, the fact that your machine then stopped suggests that the electrics got wet. That may or may not have caused expens ... Vacuums

I have a WRPL 25P Dehumidifier, Serial # NQ336USA2733, that I purchased at Canadian Tire, Corner Brook, NL, Canada on July 25, 2009. I recently noticed that the dehumidifier wasn't working. When I turn it on, it just blows cold air and does not absorb the moisture in the air. I am wondering if it is still under warranty. Please advise if the product is still under warranty and what steps I need to take to have it repaired or replaced. Thank you.

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they.

The repair shop told me my Oxygen3 needs to have a sumo(?) board replaced...again. I am not willing to pay for another repair and am wondering whether an new hose and adjustable extension tube would solve the recurring problem.

Altrev, I have an ODC325 Black&Decker spacemaker coffeemaker on my boat and it stopped working this weekend although the hot plate still gets hot. I suspect it is the thermal switch as you described (I hear a click when I switch the machine on but nothing happens and the heating element does not kick in).

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will still not pick up the used water. I found a tear in the interior hose leading to the receiving tank and repaired throughly with electrical tape. Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a clogged air path (no vacuum action) from the floor pick-up to the collection tank. Take the tanks off and deal with the vacuum problem alone.

Hoover Vacuum My Hoover cannister model s3614 "runabout powermax" suddenly lost power to the agitator roller in the rug brush. Where the wire cord enters the power brush, the covering has rubbed off exposing the wires which are not bare but still have their own covering. For a while the power came and went as I manipulated the wires but finally died. Is this something I can fix myself or is it going to be an expensive professional repair? (Warrantee has elapsed.)
