My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

Engine troubles I have a 1975 4x4 GMC full size van. The motor is a 350 cid small block on propane. The thing hadn't been running in 5 years and when I tuned it up I changed vacuum advance pod on HEI distributor and hooked to a better vacuum and now the hotter it gets the faster it idols and when I try and turn the timing back, it starts hard. Wondering if vacuum is too strong or what is up?


I haven't fixed it yet but I think I might have a solution for it. From the factory this thing had a 4 barrel carb and they put an equivalent size atomizer in it for the propane and over the years someone omitted the EGR system in it and propane is a ... Vacuums

Loud noise I have a brand new Dyson and it is great on all my floors except one of my area rugs when it starts making this really loud vibrating noise. I am not sure why - nothing is stuck in the roller or vacuum and it doesn't make it on any of my other rugs. Also it is really hard to push whereas all the other floors it just glides. I don't want to return it but I also don't want to hear this sound every time I vacuum.


This is the clutch as it jams up in the brush. Usually happens with rugs that are not secured to the floor. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?

I only know this model as the Classic, but the colour of the canister in the photo is the same. The machine will not turn on, but when I retract and pull on the cord, the power light comes on briefly. Is there a short? I lent the vacuum to my daughter and perhaps she was rough with the cord.
