Having problems with your Vacuums ?
A 'burn' hole has appeared in the Microwave Outlet Cover causing arcing (or similar sparking and blue flashing!). Would replacing this cover with a new one solve the problem or does it suggest something that would quickly reoccur?
Would it be an economical repair or should we ditch the machine for a replacement?
Thanks in advance etc it is appreciated.

Stopped running My mother's Oreck vacuum sound as if there was something bogging the rotating brush down. I pulled the bottom cover off and found nothing wrapped around or restricting the brush. I tried to finish vacuuming with the problem then I turned it off to move a chair and turned it back on it would do nothing. Any suggestions as to what could be causing the vacuum to sound as if the rotating brush is being restricted from turning. There was not odor of burning as if the motor was in a bi

I have an Electrolux Oxygen 3 vacuum I purchased rebuilt. After 1 month the power stopped working. I took it into Electrolux Authorized repair dealer, which was a horrible experience. When we received it back it was clearly not as powerful as before. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem may be? I would rather fix it myself than take it back to them. The next repair center is too far away. I am pretty good with fixing things, just needs some guidance. I think the repair center rep

I have a RIVAL Vacuum Sealer Model VS150. I need to repair the power button that is located under the cover. It looks like someone pushed the button into the machine without lowering the cover. I live in Bridgewater, MA & the address on the unit is in Milford, MA. Any suggestions.
I was vacuuming the vent in the bottom of the fridge. I must have picked something because the motor got wildly noisey. I cleaned out hoses, etc. There is no suction. I can see the blades of the motor and they are not turning around. Model U4269-930 Series B.72. Can I get at the motor to see if something is keeping the blades from turning? What would be your suggestion. Many thanks. Pat Sauerman

Hi., If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, I have a Flair 3055 ventalation system in my house and over the last five years two fan motors have gone bad. it has been mickey moused together by a local repair man, and as of last week, it has died again. At 4-5 hundred a pop I would like to fix it myself, can anyone suggest a good replacement motor that will fit and work. My honey has breading problems and at this time of year, every penny is allocated, so time is of the essence. t
Hello George, Sorry about your predicament. Various fans are available for your unit but since you say the unit has been mickey moused together adjustments must have been made to the fan seating and system therefore if you order any particular fan th ... Vacuums
Hoover Vacuum My Hoover cannister model s3614 "runabout powermax" suddenly lost power to the agitator roller in the rug brush. Where the wire cord enters the power brush, the covering has rubbed off exposing the wires which are not bare but still have their own covering. For a while the power came and went as I manipulated the wires but finally died. Is this something I can fix myself or is it going to be an expensive professional repair? (Warrantee has elapsed.) Thanks.

Poor suction...continued Wow, thanks for answering so quickly! To answer your question, yes, there is suction at the screen, but it is very weak. I keep that screen clean. As a side note, I noticed that when I remove the top clear plastic cover (that would be part # 37 on the diagram, as far as I can tell) there is decent suction coming from the intake there--part 36? 30? it's hard to tell. But with the cover on, I feel no suction (from where it sucks up the water directly from the carpet),
Wish I had it in my shop, it is hard to figure your problem. I do know that you must have something out of place and you may have to take it apart to find it. You may feel some suction there at the top of the clear nozzle, but maybe it isn't strong ... Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum
Hoover Wind Tunnel U6458-900 Self Propel doesn't work - via other expert advice here for other models of Hoover - I'm thinking it is the actuator that needs to be replaced as I can see the cable does not connect to anything on the bottom. My problem is - I can't get the cover off. Been trying for a couple of hours. I removed every screw I can seem to find but something is hold it down. I also am wondering if/when I do eventually get the cover off, would I need to replace the cable when I replac

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will still not pick up the used water. I found a tear in the interior hose leading to the receiving tank and repaired throughly with electrical tape. Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?
Sounds like a clogged air path (no vacuum action) from the floor pick-up to the collection tank. Take the tanks off and deal with the vacuum problem alone. The collection tank should have a air exit vent--is it clear? Check the interior hose that you ... Hoover F6213-900 SteamVac Agility TurboPOWER Steam Vacuum Vacuum
Roomba 530 clicks steadily as it moves, and has a limp, so something is catching inside it - inspection suggests not the brushes, not the wheels, so maybe the electric motor? Any ideas as to problem or where I can repair? Thanks. Bill

Hi. I purchased a Simplicity Freedom about 2 years ago. I have had it in for various repairs several times. One persistant problem that the repairman cannot seem to fix is the dirt does not fall down into the bag - it just stays up around the suction hole. I only use simplicity bags. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. thank you
You can let the vacuum run alittle longer so the bag fills up with air, also make sure that the bag in on correctly and you have the right bag for the unit. Let me know if this helps. ... Simplicity Vacuums
I have a pfaff select 1530 bought aprox 2003. I would like to free motion quilt. Have bought an open toe quilting foot and have lowered the feed dogs. The quilt just doesn't move freely. It is very hard to manouvre. I have tried a friends machine to free motion quilt (not pfaff) and it is smooth and free flowing. I hasve tried changing the tension and stitch length. Can you suggest something.
I have a cb9191j-10a vacuum that works fine but I am really disappointed by the small screw-on filter that quickly clogs up with dust and debris. There must be a larger type filter that could be used and this would make for a really fine vacuum. Could you suggest an alternative filter?
I just bought a used euro pro steam shark model ep903, has all parts but when I turned it on to use it water and steam poured out of the handle grip area. Am I not doing something right? The manual says to attach the brush directly to the hand grip but I can't use it without getting burned. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

DT 1300 As I am vacuuming the motor seems to fade in and out and sometimes stops running for a few seconds and then resumes. If I move the hose a bit near the vacuum end, it runs smoothly again. Does this sounds as if there might be a short in the motor? Would this be something I can fix myself or does the vacuum need to go in for repairs.

Hello! The suction in my Dyson animal is very poor. I discovered small holes in the internal hose, but even after a quick duct tape fix, still having issues...sounds like the seal from the canister to the vacuum is leaking air.

Wiring diagram for Model #11635922500 - KENMORE Upright vac I took the cover off of the vacuum to repair the power cord and must have pulled a wire out of its wire nut by the sweeper bar.

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vac
I am working on a u5290-900 hover vacuum ,when operating dust leaks out under dirt cup cover. i put a piece of card board on top of cover so extra presure would be applied to the top of cover. this seams to have stoped the leak , before adding the card board the cover seamed to lift at the back when cover was locked into place. what do you think?

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?
