Will not turn on after cleaning seperator
\015 My rainbow vacuum will not turn back on since i cleaned the seperator... is there a reset button or something that I have overlooked?\015
The reset is leaving it unplugged for about a half hour. Then give it a try. Make sure it is on the basin, as it will not turn on off of the basin.
No reset but on the newer E2 if you unplug the machine and plug it back in this will reset the computer.

Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again. Sometimes is gets so stuck from moving forward at all, like it is stuck in one spot just trying to go while seemingly surrounded by barriers. Somet

I noticed that the little side brush doesn't turn anymore and the Dirt Dog stops about every minute now so I have to keep turning it back on! I have dismantled the brushes and cleaned everything out but that didn't help at all. It doesn't really come apart any more than that for cleaning. Any suggestions as to where my problems may lie?

The brushes spin very, very slowly and stop altogether sometimes - like they just don't have any power behind them.I've cleaned the brushes and also turned it on without the brushes inside to see if the female plug that the brushes go into turns - it does, but not very fast. My husband said he thought he smelled something - like burning. Is there a way to take the underside cover off and clean something?

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

This has happened before when it was under warranty and I was told to remove caps and clean frequently.I am afraid prying them off will break the vacuum.It also has very low suction and I have cleaned the filters and the belt is fine.Will cleaning the inside of the beater bar fix my problem?

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

I removed the filter from the motor in the ball. After I cleaned it and let it dry, I put it back in. From then on, it makes a moaning noise when I turn it off after I vacuum. I followed directions to clean it and put it back (it's pretty straight forward and fool proof). I've since cleaned the filter a second time, doing the same steps and it seems to have made it worse.

I was given a model 6591, plugged it in and it worked but didnt "****" and didnt sound right. I turned it off and removed the hose from the back found a badly plugged hose. Removed the hair plug cleaned filters and when I tried to turn it on again. Now the motor will not turn on or even make a noise. I hear there is a fuse that can be blown? How can I find the fuse if there is one? Thank You Ron

Brushes won't turn on the bissell proheat 2X steam cleaner-I don't have the manual to see if there is a button I am not pushing to turn on the brushes. Also, do you put the clean water in the "bladder" in the tank? Sorry I am so dumb-this cleaner was given to me with no manual and I can't figure it out. There is a small tank on the bottom at the back of the machine, that says "formula here" and I don't know if that is where the cleaner goes or what that is for. The machine turns on just fine

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there's a little thingy that should be spinning or turning..... When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up. FYI - I filled the cleaning fluid container and after trying to clean the carpet, it did empty out but the carpet isn't wet. Any tips? The manual doesn't help.
