I have a 5260D Baby Lock Serger, which I had tuned up a year ago. I haven't used it very much since. When I took it in, and again now, it sews fine for awhile, then starts slowing down until it is barely sewing, even with the foot all the way down. The hand wheel seems very tight. - it doesn't turn freely, but takes a some push, like it is resisting a bit. Any idea what could cause this slow down and the tight hand wheel? I appreciate any ideas. Thank you. Maura

I have a dyson dc21. All the sudden the hose is hardly suctioning up anything. If I take the canaster off, the top air hole suctions extrememly well, but when I place that canister back on, the suction is not going thru the hose and picking anything up. I have squeezed the hose, I feel no air leaking and do not feel any blockages...what could be wrong. It worked fine the other day and today, it won't pick up a piece of lint!

My hoover windtunnel is not picking anything up all of a sudden. Also the roller underneith is not spinning.

Placing the handle of my Dyson DC07 into its upright and locked position causes the beater bar to stop turning. It will not start turning until the handle is first lowered to the working position and the Carpet/Bare knob is moved to the Bare Floor position and then back to the Carpet position. Then the beater bar turns until the handle is placed into the upright position. What might be the problem?

Bissell 37604 Bagless Upright Vacuum. Hose keeps clogging every time I vacuum. Is there a way to prevent this? I am ready to buy a new vacuum, but it does do a great job picking up hair...until it clogs. It clogs at top of hose. Could the hose be kinked? It does not look like it.

I have vax 1800 pet vacuum. It is picking up fine but very noisy. I have replaced the belt in the past and the noise started then. On looking at it closely today I noticed brushbar was getting worn where it slots in at the side so I suspect it wasn't fitted in properly after replacing the belt. Now in properly but still making terrible noise. There is a bit of a rubbing noise when brushbar moved round. Do you think the brushbar needs replaced? How do I lubricate the bearings to try that bef

I have had my RCA microwave model # RMW1108 for about 8 months now. It was working fine until yesturday evening. I went to warm up some food for 2 minutes, the microwave itself was on and everything appeared to be working except my food did not get warmed up. I plugged it out and checked all over it for any damage but i could not find anything wrong. What would cause it to just stop heating up the food? Is this type of problem covered in the 1 year manufacturer's warranty.

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a
