    Did that.. some time ago. Figured ut out my self now. It its that button label thingy.. again. This happened on my last sccoba too. I unsrewed the front "bumper" (grey). Then I carefulle peeled og the vinyl with the two buttons on it. Then i very carefully "split the vinyl in two. It has three layers og plastick. between the layers you will find the inside of the two button. You will find two loose plates acting as springs when you push the button. The prolkem is that sometimes theese springs stop working as spring. You have to "curve" then a bit again. The point where the connection is mad is in the center of the plate so there has to be a little bit of space between the "copper plate" spring an the contakt point under. When you hav bent the sopper plate back in shape, place it carefulle back in its place and carefully put the top layer back. I dont peel the top layer off all the way. I peel until I se the bottons inside. That makes it easier to put pack in place. The sticky thing taht keep the layers togehter will keep the layers togethet.. but I would guess that it is not 100% waterproof now. But that has not been a problem for me yet. Replacing the whole button control panel thing is also easy. Sorry about the untechnical english:

I have a days on dc28. It all of a sudden will not turn on. No blinking light, nothing. This happened a few years ago and we had to have it repaired. Can I fix myself?


Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting....

Miele vacuum cleaner suddenly stops


So this is a problem I identified in Miele's mid size ranged canister cleaners. Not only the S318...

If you go about cleaning on the highest power setting the engine will overheat after 5-10 minutes. It then will need around 20-30 minutes to cool down before you can use it again.

Tip: Don't run the machine on 100% power, instead turn the setting to around 80-90% and then you can enjoy good suction un-interrupted.

I have a rca universial remote control and I lost the manual and cant program it for my toshiba television I need the code and directions how to program it


Not knowing the code, you'll have to do it using the Automatic Code Search method.


1. Turn the TV ON manually.

2. Press and release the TV button on your remote. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn on and stay on.

3. Press and hold both the TV and the ON-OFF buttons. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn off, and then will come back on.

4. Release both buttons after the ON-OFF button turns back on. The button should remain on.

5. Press and release the PLAY button. You may have to do it several times. Be patient.
If the TV does not respond after five seconds, continue to press and release the PLAY button every five seconds until the TV turns off.

6. Just to check the code is right, after the TV turns off, press and release the REVERSE button then wait to see if the TV turns on again.

If that works, you've got it!

Press and release the STOP button to save the new code.

How do I set the alarm clock on my wharfedale ne 3120?


Press the INFO button several times until you see "Alarm Status" displayed. I had to press it five times.
Then use SELECT button to choose between ALARM OFF and ALARM ON. If you choose ALARM ON, you can adjust the alarm time by first holding down the SELECT button until the display flashes. The you use the UP and DOWN buttons on either side of SELECT, to adjust the time, the type of alarm (Beep, FM or DAB) and if you choose FM or DAB, you then select the preset. Exit by pressing SELECT a final time.Then the INFO button to exit from setup.
Hope this helps.

Roomba would run for 2 seconds and then stop it Plays 4-note song as Power button blinks RED. if I remove the battery and then try again, it repeats the same.


Probably, the battery has little service life left and should be replaced. You might let the machine run until there is no light showing at all, recharge fully, then try using it again. If you know someone that has a similar unit, try swapping batteries to check. Good luck!

Our carbon monoxide dectector model CO910, bought several years ago (10+) beeps every 30 seconds with an "err" message. All windows where it is are open. No one is feeling ill. Is it just an error on...


CO2 and Smoke detectors have an internal sensor that has a design life of 5 years from the date of manufacture. After the 5 years you start getting false alarms due to the sensor itself exceeding its average life span. On the combination CO2 and Smoke deterctors you will often see a manufacture date or a replace by date inside the cover on the main board.
On AC powered models such as this one you will just get the error when the sensor fails. If you got the full 5+ years out of your CO2 sensor then you should be happy that it served a full life expectancy.

Some Wiki data on CO2 detectors:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_monoxide_detector

This paragragh appears under installation

The gas sensors in CO alarms have a limited and indeterminable life span, typically two to five years. The test button on a CO alarm only tests the battery and circuitry not the sensor. CO alarms should be tested with an external source of calibrated test gas, as recommended by the latest version of NFPA 720. Alarms over five years old should be replaced but they should be checked on installation and at least annually during the manufacturers warranty period.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My irobot (Roomba)is only working for 10 mins then


It should take about 6 hrs to charge. I had the same problem and reset the charging circuit. 1) Charge it until the green light comes on. 2) Unplug and pull battery out. 3) hold down the power on button 15-30 seconds. 4.) Put the battery back in, plug in the charger (direct - not through the dock) and charge for 72 hrs. Then, run at Max clean until the "I'm dead" tune plays.

While vacuuming with my hoover mach 5 it all the sudden shut down


Hi, If it is warm to the touch, and it just shut down all of a sudden, I would say that the motor has an internal over load switch that is normally closed, and opened to stop from burning this vac out. It is a built-in safety. I would look at the roller for anything that may have hung up, but steady use for an hour just over heated the motor. Let it cool way down. Try and start it. Also, check the plug to see if you may have lost power there also. Let me know please so I can be of any help you may need.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
