Answers :

The brush may be spinning, but you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif\015\012because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar..

There is a short tube that the dirt passes through on this machine from the roller brush housing. Check that tube to see is it has clogged.

I have a Liftmaster garage door opener and the garage door faces south. Normally the opener works great except at certain times on a sunny day.The sunlight is not directly hitting one of the sensors but the door will comedown as far as half way and then it will go back up and the lights will flash. If I go inside and use the button I can hold it down until the door is fully closed. However, sure is a pain to have to take the car out, go back into the garage, shut the door and then leave the h

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses just as it fully closes and then the lights start to blink again. I checked for obstructions and tried to reset the limits of travel per the manual, it still does the same thing. Any ideas on what to try next?

We just used our bissell pro heat 25A3/64D9 series and the top half of the handle is not secure. Infact it flies off in my hand as im cleaning the carpet and it almost hit me in the face!!! It just connects to the lower half but there is nothing to keep it secure. If it is not tight the trigger to squirt water doesnt work and I am stopping and starting. It looks like a major design flaw.
