Did you change your thermostat? It may not be compatible. First try changing the batteries in the t-state and see if that solves your problem.

Can anyone help with an older Euro Pro EP055, It has very little suction.

Cleaning filters on a bagless vacuum helps but filters should be replaced frequently, as often as every 3 to 6 months on some vacuums. Foam filters aren't as critical to replace because the pores are very large (which also means they don't filter out the small particles) so they don't clog as easily but paper filters have much tighter pores which become clogged and restrict the airflow. Cleaning paper style filters with water which can pack the fine dust into the pores clogging the airflow even more.
I recommend replacing filters st least onceor twice per year and cleaning them after each use for best performance and longer vacuum life. Blowing the dust out with an air compressor is my preferred method.
Changing filters frequently on a bagged vacuum isn't as critical because the bag collects most of the fine dust, dirt and gunk. The surface area of a bag is much greater than that of a filter so a bag is less likely to get clogged than a filter. Most homeowners change the bag once per month which keeps the air flowing smoothly.

How do i know when it's time to add/change the sand?

You sand should last many many years if you clean it at least yearly. You can buy a chemical from your pool supply to clean it. Normally you don't need to add any. If you ever allow your pool to get very low ph it can actually disolve sand though. A little trick if you're too cheap and lazy to change all the sand is ususally only the top of the sand gets very dirty. If you open your filter, you can scoop out about 50 lbs from the top and only replace that. Be careful not to get sand in the down tube though.

How often should i change ice maker filter

Your GE refrigerator may have a filter sensor or meter that will guide you to the time to change the filter.

If it does not, general rule of thumb is at least once a year. If you use the water and ice quite frequently, then you may want to consider changing the filter every 6 months to ensure you are always getting the best quality water and the water entering the ice maker is clean enough not to leave any deposits.

Water filter question

WOW! I'd say that the filter is definately due for replacement.

The manufacturer recommends the filter be changed every 6-8 months, as with ice and water dispensers in the door, folks tend to use the chilled water and ice more often, hence you get alot of gallons of water thru the fridge each month.

Once you replace the filter, you'll need to flush out the lines, (see the instructions with the new filter) to get rid of any loose carbon in the filter element, but once you done this, you should also notice better water flow and better tasting water and ice cubes too.

I tend to change my ice/water filter on my fridge every year when I change my smoke detector batteries. That way, I don't forget, sort of like my personal "once-a-year" house task list to change batteries, filters, resetting timers, etc., etc.

It's a good idea to change these smaller filters at a minimum of once a year, as they are no longer providing the filtration you want, and can actually be letting some of the contaminents fow out and into your water and cubes.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck...

i know bissell vacuums are very cheap but they should last more than 3 years. there should be two parts to the dirt cup. remove the dirt cup and above it there should be a round plastic part. unscrew it and check that filter.

My 1997 nissan truck has been sitting and won't start

How long has it been sitting? After several months the gas breaks down and goes bad. I have let a car sit for a year, and start w/out a problem, but any longer than that, and you will probably have to drop the gas tank and clean it out, along w/ the fuel lines, and check the fuel pump, as it may be plugged up. Last, change the fuel filter.

Cool Mist Humidifier Filter Drying Out

How long are you going between filter changes?

A filter that stops wicking water up and turns orange/yellow is one full of deposits.

It sounds like you have hard water. How are you filtering this water before you use it? Distilled water is the best.

Replace the filter. They don't last forever. Mine normally last a month to a month and a half.

Good Luck
