Answers :

Greetings from GoVacuum,
\015\012Yes, the Riccar 4812 does in deed have a reset switch. Unfortunately some dishonest repair man will tell you at this point that your motor has gone, but 7-10 times it's the reset switch.
\015\012If you look down at the base of th vacuum cleaner at the vacuum bottom in the back, right above the rear wheels, you will see a small red button. Take a ball point pen, and while the vacuum is plugged in, go ahead and push the red button or the reset switch. Did the vacuum come on?
\015\012If not, it may another simple problem of the cord/ plug going bad.
\015\012I hink if it just stopped workint all or a sudden, it's prbably the reset switch.
\015\012If it's not, please email me or give me a call and I then diagnose the problem for you.

I just bought kaz model K76P (M) humidifier in Kyoto. I filled it to the right water level (a bit below) and plugged it in (nothing else is plugged in at that socket). The light comes on, but the water doesn't heat up. I can't read Japanese so can't read the instruction manual but it seems a simple procedure: fill with water, set the heating thing the water, plug in.
