I have a landxcape 600w GHT610N Hedge Trimmer which has just suddenly stopped working. I was using it for longer than recommended but it was working when I finished but next day was completely dead. Any ideas? Having done a bit of research I wonder if its the carbon brushes. If so how easy are they to replace/where are they? (Ihave checked plug fuse ok!) Thanks Jeremy

Hi,My agitator brush won't run on my hoover S3590, I changed the belt, that didn't work. I don't see a possible cause in my book except replacing the belt.

Hi! I'm interested in purchasing a G3 model ; however , the seller says that the machine was working perfectly and then when switching power on a while later , the machine was " dead " .

I have a VAX V12 vacuum cleaner which suddenly stopped. The smell indicated Carbon Brush Problems. I contacted a service agent who told me that it was not possible to change the Carbon Brushes brushes on this model and they would need to change the Motor Unit.. To me this sounds very unlikely. Two questions please. Is it possible to change the Carbon Brushes and how do I get the cabinet apart which looks very difficult. I am well qualified electrically to do this job. Regards James Beech
