\015 Fuse burned out because someone operated without emptying. Slight smell of hot electricals on opening. Replaced with new wired fuse assembly, soldered at collector ring and brush terminal. On restarting motor turned slowly briefly and stopped. Found glass cover of fuse broken and fuse open circuit. Did not experience difficulty in reassembly once wires and fuse neatly tucked away.\015

I have an euro-pro steam cleaner model # sc505 that is about 2 years old. It has only been used a limited number of times, about 3 or 4 times. It now has a tightly sealed safety cap on it and it will not release allowing me to add water to the steamer to use it now. Any tips on fixing it? I'd love to have a products guide to items that are available for compatiability with our sharkie. We constantly see new items available and wonder will that product work with ours?? Thanks!

I have a progressive 360 model 116.27814. I want to change the exhaust filter and I cannot get the filter cover off of the back of the canister. Please give detailed instructions. I am afraid that I will break the cover, because I can't see how it should detach.
There should be tabs that need to be pressed in, and will allow the filter cover to be removed to access the filter. On some models, the tabs are accessed from the bottom by tilting the unit on its side, or by simply pressing them in from the top, th ... Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum
The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.

I just bought a Tfal Ultimate Autoclean iron FV 9450. I am reading through the manual and trying to figure out all the parts and functions. I cannot figure out how to remove the anti calc valve. I see it is part # 12 on the drawing but that piece on my iron (the bit with the little circles on it where it says, " anti calc plus') seems to be a flat piece of integrated plastic with no give or slide to it. .I cannot see how I'd possibly remove it. What do you do - push up? push down? The i

My Dyson DC17 has lost suction on the wand and is not picking up dirt as it should. I have taken the small part at bottom of the machine off to see if there is a blockage--none that I can see. The flexible tube on wand is very tight and won't extend very much. Dyson sent me a new cyclonic part in April but the machine still doesn't seem to be working properly. My serial number is 260-us-d11545. Is there somewhere I can take my Dyson to get it fixed. I'm very frustrated with it. Thank you.

I have a Bissell 9400 E pro heat turbo. It's only been used 4 times, today it sounded like something blew.

Bissell 6595 problems with roller brush. I've had this happen with two of the same model. Each one didn't last more than seven months! First, it became loud when vacuuming, then there was a burning smell. When you try to replace the belt, you see that won't do any good because the fitted end of the brush is melted. The housing part the roller brush fits into is melted too. There's no place for the roller brush to fit into. I tried to upload pics, because I don't see how replacing the roller brus

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

Have Electrolux 1590 whole house vac, and can't see how to get brushes out. Leads so short, and don't want to break them trying to free brushes. Do they slide out of plastic housing? My eyes not real good, but it looks like the leads are part of a brass sleeve that slides into the plastic housing. It also looks like the plastic housing may be a snap lock type, but I don't see how to open it.

I have an old Progressive vacuum cleaner that says "Hepa Filter" and "Whisper Belt". Not sure what the model # is. The problem is that the vacuum part itself (the part that touches the floor and rolls over) has ejected its filter that we can see through the little window- it just came out under the rollers under the device... we cannot see how to re-insert this piece of filter which looks like a kind of round, flat grey foam/fabric and clearly goes inside- (top of the part that touches the flo

Hi I own a Bissell Proheat Powersteamer pro-tech with a turbobrush. I have been using "bissell multi-allergen removal formula for carpets and upholstery." I ran out of that last night.

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
