Having problems with your Sunbeam Vacuums ?

My sunbeam water cooler model #YLR2-5-67H3 has been sitting unplugged for 3 years. I moved, plugged it in and put a water bottle on top and water went all over the floor. I unplugged it, (read the instructions on the front, duh) and it still leaks on the floor. What should I do? I put it over the sink, emptied it, checked the drain plug, tried running a glass full of tap water through each tap. Only the room temperature one would work.


Answers :

One of the rubber connecting hoses inside it has dried and aged so the pressure of the water from the bottle made it burst.\012\012\012
You will need to open it, find the defective hose and replace it - a 2 hour relatively easy job. The hardest part will be in taking the casing apart - lots of hidden screws.
There is a little tiny seal that is almost like a plug in each one of the taps. If the cooler has sat for 3 years the seals may have become brittle and weak. Sometimes they rot away and dry up, or they may just crack in places. Next time you are going to put it away for a long period of time, use petroleum jelly to lubricate the seal and tape it closed.

If the seal is no good in the tap or taps, you can replace them on line. You want to replace the whole tap, and they turn and unscrew easily. The taps are approx $ 15.00 (American) to replace both.

There is also a chance that the seal is good, its just kinked, or stuck and not covering where it should in order to keep the water in. Check the inside of the tap (with the cooler empty) and move the knobs as if you were dispencing water to see if the seal moves and covers normally when operated. You should see it closed and covering the opening and then move to open leaving room for the water to dispense. If its just stuck, use the hook on a dental pik to move it back to where it belongs But beware that if the seal can move over or become kinked one time, it can do it again. This may not be a final solution and replacing the tap or taps involved may be a better choice for this situation.

Hope this helps?

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.

While using my mop yesterday, it stopped letting steam come out. Tonight I plugged it up again and you could hear it trying to steam. I push the button in to release the square frame and it pushed out a burst of steam and pushed the head off. Put it back together and it still will not let steam out. No matter how much water is in it.

After two years, my Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop, Model S3101, no longer ejects steam. I have used tap water. I think the line is clogged with mineral deposits. The light is on when plugged in, and the unit heats up. I even put in vinegar for about an hour to break up the calcium deposits, but it did not correct the problem. How do I fix it, or, where can I take it locally to be fixed (Orange County, CA)?

At first when I tried starting my B & S I primed the motor and it ran for a few seconds and died. This happened twice. I drained the tank and took apart the cvarb and blew out the entire carb. Put it back together changed the plug and now nothing. Could it be that the priming diaphriam (#694395) has a hole and thus preventing gas to come up from the carb bowl?

Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution tank to test without ay success. It is like it loses it's prime whenever you try to use a solution mix. Once you set it back to water rinse only and go through the priming steps, it is OK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Water leak I just bought this steamer a few days ago, and already I am having problems, when I fill the water tank that your suppost to fill the water runs out before I even turn the machine on. I have tried using plugs to keep it from doing this just so I can shampoo my carpet, this seems to work to a point, considering the fact that there are two holes underneath close to the brushes and one just a little ways back from that location.

Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin. So we took the housing off and after unclogging a hose running to the hearter, my husband unhooked the hose that goes to the flow indicator, blew in it and it started spinning. Put the deep cleaner back together, tried to use it and nothing. What else can we try? Can't afford to put it in the shop right now. Thanks in advance.

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger. The clean tank doesn't leak when I fill it, but once I place it where it fits and start using the vacuum, the clean water drains out on the floor. The dirty tank fills up, so the suction works, but, I don't know what is going on?
