This sounds like you have an internal problem with the electrical switch. I would recommend you take it to a vacuum dealer who has experience with this model. This is a relatively simple reapir for a pro shop to handle.

I have a new Bissell Powerglide 1305 vacuum. It is red. I took the thing apart screw by screw to clean it inside out after my son decided to vacuum out the fireplace ash. However, once I put it back...


Knowing a little of how mechanical things are designed I would guess that when you took it apart you didn't notice exactly how the mechanism was set up that triggers the reclining feature. I would take it apart again. Then canalize how the reclining mechanism should work. It's probably to pieces that are not fastened together but are only held by positioning on assembly.

The on off switch is stuck in the on position. I can'tfigure how to take the handle apart. Where can I find an on-line manual? Hoover wind tunnel up-right.


On the windtunnel the switch is not in the handle. It is located in the top of the body housing underneath where the handle meets the body. The slide lever you are pushing on to make the machine run is just a push rod.

You can't get that apart. I repair the switches on these hoses a lot. The only way to fix it is to just get a new switch and replace it. You can get a replacement switch here:

MY hoover steam vac hand held hose cleaner leaks profusely


try taking a sharp knife and shaving a little off the edge of the plastic, or a small file if you can get to it, see if it is getting binded. If its getting stuck internally, you will have to replace the switch instead of risking takin it apart.

When I push the button to release steam on the handle it feels soft and no steam is released. It has been going out for a while now.


I didn't fix the problem but I did take the handle apart. There is a little metal piston that is pushed down by the button on the outside of the handle. It was very sticky and stuck in the off mode. I freed it when I took it apart but obviously it just stuck again. I am going to take the handle apart and see if a little WD40 will make it easier to push. Either that or glue it in the "on" position. I really love this appliance and if I can't fix it, I'll probably just buy something similar.

My dyson dc 17 does not work when in the upright position


I had this same issue today, after not being able to find a solution, I took apart the brush area by unscrewing the three simple screws... my belt had a TON of dog and cat hair built up inside it so I cleaned that out and it did the trick.

Kenmore canister switch issue


It most likely is the hose pcb. It has the switch on it, and part of it is either just dirty or bad.
