What else could it be? What can I do to fix it? It's a model 121 (orange) and about 17 years old (worked fine until this week) Thanks in advance!

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809. This thing is so dirty and clogged because my sister has pets. So far I've gotten it all taken apart to clean it. I'm not a newbie and taking apart and fixing things. I have fixed things like microwaves, washers, dryers, dishwashers (still learning about TV's-very hard, hehe). Anyway, I got what I believe to be the motor cover off.

That cover is the called the fan cover and is usually pressed on. Tapping on the edge with a flat blade, you may be able to get it off and hope you don't bend it up, you will to put it back on tight enough so it will stay in place. Another thing to ... Vacuums

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)?

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together

My Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner model 116.27514700 has unacceptably low suction.It is much less than my older GE Walmart canister vacuum. the 2 filters are very clean and there is no blockage in the hose and the dust collection bag is empty. Is poor suction a characteristic of this model or if not is there a way to fix this problem?

My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched). I fixed the wires and it worked intermittently for an hour then shut down completely. Could the reset switch have a short? When I press the switch nothing happens.

The switch is definitely a possibility, but other problems can also cause this.\015\012Bad switch, needs replaced.\015\012Broken wiring in power nozzle, wands, hose, or canister.\015\012Bad PN motor.\015\012\015\012I str ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum

Again, I have a Bissel Model 3760-4. The same problem as everyone else. The beater bar will not turn. Took apart, nothing. Took to vacuum repair shop and they said it is not getting power to the motor to the beater bar. Seems like a fair number of folks are having this same issue. You would think Bissell would come up with a fix, if nothing else to save their reputation. Thanks Diane

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

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio
