I loved my Shark Steam Pocket Mop, but it suddenly stopped producing steam through the mop heads. The water is heating and I can see and hear steam coming out of the actually body of the mop, but it will not go through to the head. I have thought of running white vinegar through it. Do you have any suggestions?

Motor still runs--sounds like jet engine. do I need a new motor? or is there some sort of muffler that has malfunctioned? vacuum belongs to disabled mom---so trying to do work ourselves--cant afford much. dont see anything obviously wrong--but know nothing about electric motors.
This little vac I think is actually made by Samsung. If it is ROARING and vibrating, either the bearings or suction fan is in bad shape. Remove the lid as if to inspect the belt and see if there is a visible intake opening with a plastic fan rotatin ... Bissell 3590 CleanView Bagless Upright Vacuum

Kenmore canister model 116.25513506 wont turn on. when handle switch is turned to floor. vac motor does not turn on. When switch is turned to carpet, floor nozzle works but vac motor does not. I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs.

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
Model # 5770 the brush motor runs and shuts down after a few seconds...Turn unit off and the brush again will run for a second or two...If I don't turn unit off brush will not start up..Could it be the printed board..the motor brushes..or the wiring that goes from the printed board to the main motor...Thank you
Seems like your unit goes into failsafe because it detects something wrong. Well you should check the brushes and replace them if they are worn out. Also check the wiring for shorts etc, becaue the unit maybe tripping due to an overload. The printed ... Bissell Vacuums
