My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

I've never had to change a CFL bulb like the GE 35972 in my kitchen ceiling fixture. It looks like a squared off pretzel with the socket in the middle and facing up to the ceiling. It's been in there for years -- this is a rental -- and because it's so close to the ceiling, I can't tell where to pull the pins from the socket apart without breaking it. Any instructions or suggestions? Also, my Home Depot doesn't sell it; will the pins match a different CFL, like maybe a circular one?


CFL bulbs are held in place by a friction fit, but it is a very tight fit. Grasp the CFL by the sqaure plastic base and pull firmly away from the socket. You may have to wiggle it a little, but don't try to pull it out by the globe because they are ... GE Vacuums

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

Hi all---I have a Dirt Devil 091020V. there was a problem with the wand where it was the only thing sucking even when it was stuck in the tube it would ****--but nothing from the vacuum end--the diverter was stuck closed I took it apart and found something stuck but in the meantime the torsion spring [I think} fell out and I don't know where it goes--so now only the vacuum works --not the overhead cleaner part.. is there a digram somewhere that can tell me where it goes--I think it might b

I have a Sears shop vac.... i tipped it over this morning and the filter came off. No big deal, but there was a plastic or PVC cup inside, and i can't figure out whether the opening of this cup should face up [ceiling] or face down [floor]. I can't find my manual around, so i need help..... seems like it's leaking dust from the out port now, so.....?


You may need to better describe the cup on the filter, but if it has a handle on it, it's the end cap. The handle part will face the floor and you should be able to screw the cap on, securing the filter. ... Vacuums

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?
