Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Battery "handle" slightly lifted

After removing the battery from its charger, the handle for removing the battery is slightly elevated and won't go back down. This means that the battery cannot make full connection with the stick vac, so I can't turn on the vacuum. Is there a way to fix this?

SOURCE: Is it possible to replace the battery (loosing

Let me say this; The battery replacement for the Electrolux is not a owner level replacement procedure. However, you can replace the 4 original EMX1600sS batteries . The battery model is Tenergy 2/3A Size Rechargeable Battery 1.2V 1600mAh NiMH W/ Tabs Those are a little smaller than the originals but with the same capacity of 1600mAh and can be easily found in the web. Anything under those specs should work. These types of battery's will cost about $15.00 on the web.

    SOURCE: The brush on my Hoover Windtunnel T series won't turn when I'm vacuuming carpet. It does, however, turn when I'm vacuuming bare floor, and I didn't think it was supposed to do that.

    1) test the belt +brush for worn and replace
    2) test the motor
    God bless you

    If you have your receipt, check with Ryobi to see if it is still under warranty. It comes with either a 2 or 3 year warranty, depending on when it was purchased. If it is still covered, get it replaced/repaired. If it is not, buy the P117 charger. $30 at Home Depot. It has a 90 day satisfaction guarantee. If it charges your batteries properly, you're good. If not, bring it back if you don't like/want it. My P113 won't get out of test mode now, or charge Lithium batteries anymore. So I bought the P117 yesterday. Works great, and it's a lot cheaper than new batteries! And it has a 3 year warranty.

    My Electrolux Rapido wet&dry won't start. The battery is empty and the blue light flashes when I plug in the charger.


    this sounds totally silly but is the power button on the vacuum actually off? Had the same problem, where the battery was completely empty i didn't know my son had switched the vacuum on put it on charge and the light was flashing. I took it off the charging stand pressed the power button then put it back....now charging perfectly. Anyone who doesnt have this appliance will think you sound stupid but its just a clicky button so visually the button looks the same on or off.

    Roomba 4210 won't start


  • Lift Roomba off the floor and place it in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle.
  • If Roomba did not resume cleaning, lift Roomba and turn it over.* Inspect the Side Wheels for dirt or obstructions.
  • Test the Side Wheels by pushing them in and out and making sure they rotate freely. Place Roomba in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle

    If you're sure the battery contacts are clean and the battery really is charged, then there is faulty circuitry within the Roomba that would have to be repaired or replaced.

    Confirm that the battery is inserted with the metal contacts down so they make contact with the spring terminals in the battery compartment.

    Visually confirm that the metal contact plates on the battery pack, and the spring terminals in the battery compartment are clean and shiny. If not, wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel, its OK to use a little water or rubbing alcohol on the cloth, if needed, and then dry it.

    Visually confirm that the metal contact plates on the Roomba, and the spring terminals on the docking station's home plate are clean and shiny. If not, wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel, its OK to use a little water or rubbing alcohol on the cloth, if needed, and then dry it.

    If you have a volmeter, measure the voltage between the contacts on the battery pack If it isn't something in the neighborhood of 14 volts and is 11 volts or less, the battery isn't fully charged.

    Reinstall the battery.

    For the moment, please connect the power adapter directly to the Roomba rather than the docking station to eliminate one possible faultly connection.

    If the battery wasn't fully charged, or you weren't able to test it, try to charge the Roomba and then retest the battery voltage if you can. If the battery voltage was higher immediately after charging, but didn't get to 14 volts, the charger is good, but battery needs to be replaced. If the battery voltage was unchanged after attempting to charge the Roomba, the charging circuitry may be faulty. If there was no light patterns when you tried to charge it, and it was plugged in to a good outlet, then the power adapter or charging circuitry is definitely bad.

    If you have no voltmeter and you cleaned the contacts and tried to charge the Roomba and it works, use the Roomba and then recharge using the docking station and see if it was just dirty contacts or it won't charge through the docking station. If it didn't work, you'll need to figure out if its the battery, the charging circuitry in the Roomba, or the power adapter. If there are no lights when you try to charge the Roomba, then Either the power adapter or the Roomba power circuitry is defective, but without a voltmeter you can't find out which one, and there's no way to know if the battery is good or bad, but you know Roomba wasn't trying to charge it. If there are lights when you try to charge the Roomba, then at least you know the power adapter is good. Unfortunately, without being able to test something there's no way to distinguish between a charger that won't deliver a charge to the battery and a battery that won't accept a charge. If you want to take a guess then a bad battery is more common and less expensive to fix.

    I bought Dyson DC16 in 2008. Charged full but it only last for 1 minuet. Should I get a new charger? Is Dyson going to send me a new charger?


    Your battery is losing voltage too quick. It has probably developed a 'memory'. Dyson claims that their handheld has the best suction out of all the handhelds out there. In order to maintain that claim the circuit board will shut off power to the motor when the voltage drops below adequate charge for full suction.
    We need someone who can teach us to bypass that part of the circuit so it won't cut power to the motor or you need to get a new battery.
    Shorting the battery like an Aircraft battery then re-charging won't fix it.

    Handle release catch out of place.


    I just took mine apart, and there is rounded grooves on both sides of the base for the upright section to rest in. When I put it back together, it naturally pulled out of those grooves and laid back flat. I had to hold it in the grooves while reattaching the screws. The piece that comes off and allows the upright enough movement to come out of the grooves is on the top of the base in the back middle. There is one screw on the front of it, and then 4 screws in the back of it. If your upright section appears to be not in the grooves, remove those five screws, place it in the grooves (it'll have to be slightly elevated---can't lay it all the way flat or it'll come out) and reattach the screws.

    Is not charging - no red light


    Yes, it can be replaced. Can be ordered from Black & Decker. Some people would say it's worth fixing others would not. Don't know cost of battery -- probably under $20.
