Having problems with your Sunbeam Vacuums ?

I have a Sunbeam micro-glide iron model 4268-126 with a teflon sole-plate. Even after two washings, the red dye in the fabric still came off and is now all over the plate of the iron. How can I remove the red dye? Thank you.

Answers :

Make sure that the Iron is unplugged from the Mains socket. From a Paint shop / Hardware shop.get some Turpentine. Wet a soft cotton cloth with Turpentine and gently wipe the iron surface in a circular pattern. You might have to wet the cloth a few times and the color will come off.
After the color comes off wipe the teflon area with a liquid dish washer solution to remove all traces of turpentine.Wipe clean several times and then heat up the iron to full temperature( Max: temp ) and iron an old cotton cloth to remove the traces of soap and turpentine ( and also the smell ).

Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start.

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.

My DC-25 will not return to the upright position. I emailed Dyson support and the response was: "The DC25 stabilizer wheels will not lock into position if the “spokes” on the red pedal are not seated correctly." I agree with that assessment, but cannot figure out how to get the spokes on the red pedal to seat correctly. The manual is useless for this problem since that part of the vacuum cleaner came already assembled, so the manual does not address it. Help.

It sounds like the undercarriage unit has failed. It is a common problem on ball models. The DC25 is a recent model so would still be under Dyson's 5 year guarantee. Get them out to it. ... Dyson DC15 All Floors - The Ball Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
