miele 228 power brush stopped working

Does the motor on the Head Run but the Brush does not turn... change the Belt, the brush head is operated by a rubber belt this is so it has no direct drive so if you suck up something then you ruin a belt and not the motor. Besides you should change the belt as per MFG directions. I change ours at Least 2 times a year and if you do.. say Pull in a Rug corner and it smells like Burnt Rubber? ... you just decreased your life of the Belt.... you'd be surprised on how well a New Belt helps your Vac pick up things. Change the bag often too, do not wait till it can pickup no more. The bag is Not meant to be FULL to be changed, besides it keeps Mites in the trash where they belong and not a breading ground in your closet... If you have a bag-less clean and rinse (All Filters Every Vac has a Filter even the Bag-Less ones) and let dry after a day of vacuuming follow MFG directions, Hope this helps.

Dyson I sucked a towel up by mistake an it started smoking an burning smell turned off power what damage will I av caused

As a general rule when you pick up a sock or towel or anything laying on the floor that is too big for the vac to handle, it generally stops the brush roll, which in turn stops the belt and that in turn makes the belt burn in two in about 20 seconds, if you don't catch it in time. Now on most vacuums this isn't a major repair. Most folks, with a modicum of mechanical knowledge can change a belt on about 90% of the upright vac's around, but the Dyson's aren't in that 90%, they're in the ten % that make it incredibly difficult to change a simple belt. You'll need to take it to your friendly neighborhood vac repair shop and have them put on a new belt, depending on which belt that broke. Have them give you an estimate first. You may be surprised at what it costs to have a belt changed, if it's the one that's on the clutch assembly.

need to find repair man

<P>Try this web site. They do a fixed price repair and service. Pick up and return all for £89.00. Take into account a new hose ans trigger cost around £74.00 plus postage, it seems a fair price.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><A href="http://callde.co.uk/polti_authorised_repair_agent.asp">http://callde.co.uk/polti_authorised_repair_agent.asp</A></P>

Does not pick up water.

What can I do and what part do I need to replace? I have taken it apart and clean it but still won't pickup the water.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright. It sounds to me that you may have a clog or an obstruction or the channel to the suction motor per say might be broken and is not creating the suction needed to pickup the water to the recovery tank. So check with your local factory authorized vac dealer that carries and services Bissell. I will give you the Bissell factory phone # listed below for further questions. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
