Reset the player by inserting a paerlcip into the reset hole. If that fails, go to Philips' website and upgrade the firmware on your player to solve the freezing issue permanently. Actually, don't go to Philips website - run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect it to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up. Once all this is done, use the Philips Media converter to convert all your video files from now on.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elegance Vacuum cleaner - power bar not working

The problem almost certainly is that the axle of the brush in your power bar has dirt/fluff in it that is preventing the belt from turning it so that the fuse in the power bar clicks off after 2 or 3 seconds. It is fairly easy to fix. All you will need is a Phillips screwdriver and about 15 minutes. Follow the following steps

1. With the power bar disconnected from the vacuum, turn it upside down and you will see two inset screws at the rear side of the base of the power bar. Unscrew these two screws using your Phillips screwdriver.

2. With the power bar in the same position unlatch the two plastic tabs at the rear of the power par. [It may be useful to flip up the metal bar that you see on the base to use as a handle] On each side of the base you will see an arrow saying insert screwdriver here to release. Insert a screwdriver and lever the plastic of the base slightly apart from the plastic of the side. When you have done this for both sides the base should lift off.

3. Now lift the brush including the two end pieces straight up. It should just slide up. You will need to unhook the drive belt from the brush as you lift it out.

4.Pull of each end piece and clean the dust, lint, hair off the end piece and from inside the end of the brush.

5.Once clean, reinstall the end pieces on the brush. Hook the belt back over the brush to its original position and slide the brush back into the power bar.

6. Reinstall the base by hooking the tabs from the front of the base into the small openings on the power bar.then push the base down until it clicks back into place and the tabs are back in their original position. Reinstall the two screws you removed earlier.

7. The power bar should now work. Good luck.

SOURCE: PHILIPS MOBILO PLUS (vacuum)- How to remove motor cover?

I found a solution. At least on my Mobilo HR8572. There are two tabs on the top plastic parts that hold on to the bottom plastic part. These tabs are located above the wheels, if you look closely you will see thicker grey plastic. You have to put a big screwdriver under the top plastic part and move it outward. The tabs are 6mm thick so you have to bend it out considerably. It then pops open. Works a treat and all the motor and electrical components are easily accessible using a simple star driver

Dyson cylinder i was sucking a vacuum space saver bag and my vacuum just stopped


Hi Philip,

Your DC11 is equipped with a safety device which shuts the cleaner down if it starts to overheat. It's likely that this is what occurred, as there may not have been enough airflow through the cleaner to keep the motor cool. If you unplug the cleaner and leave it to cool down for at least an hour, you should find it will work again.

If the cleaner still won't run after this time, get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance - you can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

My vacum Cleaner has ceased to operate


Check from the power cord line to the switch and further the continuity from the switch to the motor. There is no difficulty to check this out but for the trouble to open the unit. So check by logic if the cord is damaged then check into the switch and motor. If power comes to the motor check for the brush contacts, the commutator wearing or the capacitor,

Generic problem for all Vacuums
I am trying to take
I am trying to take my Philips vision 8731 vacuum cleaner apart because a heap of c*** got sucked into the motor when the bag was not put in correctly. I have removed all visible screws but cannot for the life of me find how the wheel end comes apart. Any tips?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I believe the part you are taking about is the fan and the fans generally are installed by a reverse thread and screws off counter clock wise. Once you removed the fan or the wheel you can use a blower and blow the motor clean, remove the carbon brushes and use a pipe cleaner to clean out the carbon brush holders and then re-install. Also free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages under vacuums.
