My RC3000 will not dock. It keeps bouncing off the contacts. Then it continues to search for the station, only to bounce off it again. Please help!

SOURCE: RC3000 cannot return to the base smoothly

Mine was doing the same thing.  Turned out to be dust that had gathered inside preventing the electric eyes (ir sensors) from work well.  Carefully using some lock ring pliers turn the three grey fasteners 90 degrees counter clockwise.  Then lift off the yellow top cover.  Using an air hose or soft brush clean the sensors sticking up from the circuit board.  Be careful not to bend the out ones has they are not hard mounted.  Then also clean the inside of the IR windows on the yellow top cover.  While your at it take the time to blow out all the dust from the unit.  You should remove the inner screen prior to using compressed air so you can blow out the vac fan itself.  About every six months I do this or when it starts to act weird.  You should blow of all sensors on the base unit also.

SOURCE: Notices some problem with suction on my Karcher

The air passages through the machine may be plugged, or the impeller (fan) on the motor is slipping on the shaft so that no vacuum is produced. Remove the brush assembly to check the air passage behind it and inspect the brush bearings for collections of thread, string, and hair. Also, inspect the debris collection area for air passage blocking. If there is a filter where the air discharges that might be plugged. Hope some of this helps!

How to keep my oreck xl bag docking station attached. bought


Put smaller part of bag docking system on first. Seperate it from the other. It has to be pushed on past plastic lip around hole. It should feel very tight. Then attach larger part of bag dock onto the smaller one.

Notices some problem with suction on my Karcher RC3000. Much of the dust remains on the brush and doesn't get sucked in. Service couldn't advise anything. Any ideas?
