Creda aquaexperience shower pump over run

I have a creda aquaexperience shower that has worked well to date but has decided to now let me down.
The water flow is fine but when the shower is turned off via the control knob
the water shuts off but the pump continues running until the mains are
shut off, consequently when the mains are turned back on for another
shower the pump starts straight up running dry,
I have taken the unit off and my only conclusion thus far is that maybe
the in line flow switch is not functioning ???
where would I get a new one if this is the fault.

    Yes it was easy to remove, one screw at the bottom then the unit lifts off the top screw.
    I then used a step ladder to secure the weight of the unit, with the power off and the hot and cold water stops off the wiring is easily removed and the pipe fittings can be undone and that is it.
    The wiring is marked on the chock block so is easily replacable.
    The flow switch has two wires going to a chock block which are easy to get at, then the pipe holding the switch can be removed.
    I was lucky in that the ball?? in the switch had just jammed so with a quick clean out, on it all went and Bobs your uncle I was up and running.
    You are lucky if you were told by creda that you can buy a switch as they told me that I would have to buy the switch & pump as a pair at £160.
    The shower works fine now but is a little bit noisier which is probably the pump where it run dry.
    I would be interested in knowing the price and part number of a switch if you purchase one, but give it a little whack and a clean out first it may save you a few bob.
    I hope this helps

    Yes my shower now makes a bit of noise but the pressure is ok. you can buy the same shower on ebay for less than creda are asking for the parts but not sure about the warranty.

    Hi there, me again - managed to get the flow switch sorted as you suggested but the pump now making a higher pitched noise + a fair loss on pressure in the shower. Have called creda and the pump and flow switch is £109.11 delivered with a 14 day wait on the part. Now have to decide if to go for that or new shower.

  • smudja May 11, 2010

    I have the exact same problem and have just spoken to Creda apparently the only parts they stock for this unit is the flow switch. I have not yet taken the unit off as I inherited the shower when we bought the house and don't have any manual. Is it easy? Be happy to let you have my email if there is a way to without showing it on here?

Actually the problem is inside of the canister itself. You need to change a part called the control valve. Occaisonally when fine particles get inside of the valve it damages the inside of the valve, sending a false reading to the main motor, causing it to shut off. This is a relatively quick and easy repair and should be recieved on a same day basis.

SOURCE: Hoover U5750-900 just shuts off

I have a similar bagless model U5757-900 that is shutting off. I disassembled the unit, and what I found is that the motor front bearing had accumulated enough grime so that the bearing locked up. When this happened, the bearing outer shell spun in the plastic housing, causing it to soften, from friction heat. This allowed the motor shaft to become off center from the normal, centered axis of rotation. Once this happened, the rotor inside the motor began to rub against the stator, the fixed part of the motor inside. This loaded down the motor, causing excessive current draw, which caused the overheat switch to activate, shutting down the machine.

In your case, it might not be as bad as in my case.

Remove the dual-cannister dirt cup.

To find out, disassemble the unit lower section: on bottom, remove 4 screws around the rotating brush housing. Remove the brush cover, then remove the brush, then remove the belt. Remove the wide plastic housing behind the brush. Remove the two screws, from the bottom, that retain the upper hood. Remove the hood.

On the back, remove the two screws and hose retainer going from the base to the upright section. This releases the hose from the lower section.

Now press the tilt release, and lay back the upright section. Remove the four screws, two on each side, from the trunnion caps, where the upright section tilts on the lower section. Remove the trunion caps. Remove the upright section from the lower section.

Remove the headlight cover (2 screws).

From the back, remove the single screw retaining the bezel above the headlight area.

Slide the bezel upwards and remove.

Remove the four screws that retain the motor cover clamshell. One is from front, and other 3 from rear.

Open motor clamshell halves to expose motor.

Note orientation/position of the three wires on the motor, and remove those wires. Lift motor out.

To open the motor, gently tap the edges of the impeller housing (aluminum shell) on the edge of the shell, in the little gaps around the shell.

Using a 1/2" socket, remove the nut in the center of the impeller. This is a LEFT HAND NUT. TURN RIGHT TO LOOSEN IT.

Gently wiggle the impeller while pulling until impeller comes off of motor shaft. Use a glove so the impeller doesn't cut your hand.

Remove the large flat washer on the motor shaft. Remove the small sleeve from the motor shaft.

On the brush end of the motor, using a small screwdriver, pry out on the brush holders. Set them aside.

Remove the two screws holding motor together. Seperate the motor front from motor rear. Withdraw the motor rotating part.

Look into the inside of the stator, inspecting for bright, shiny areas where the rotor may be dragging on the stator. If you see these, then the front bearing, in the plastic motor frount, is fried. I don't think Hoover sells this part alone. Also inspect the plastic front bearing retainer to see if there is any melting that has allowed the bearing to become off center.

In any case, if there is scrubbed out places inside the stator, then the motor requires replacement, about $70 for the motor... You might be able to find an entire new vac for less... or, like me, find one on the side of the street where someone has tossed out a unit.

You may luck out and find that the impeller unit is just filled with some trash so air cannot get to the motor for cooling... or you may have a shot motor.

SOURCE: power shut off, won't come on

I have had the same problem. It takes sometimes up to an hour to reset. It is thermal link that can't be manually reset. It does it on its own after it cools down.

One thing that also helped me was cleaning the flat filter that is located just above the cannister. My suction improved greatly once I cleaned that.

SOURCE: with a new bag -after turning vacuum on, it shuts down

I used to be a service manager for Electrolux.
For a blocked hose, turn the hose around and **** the clog out the way it came it. If you have the exhaust connectoin, plug the hose in there and put the other end at the intake, and blow it out.

For the "Bag Full" problem, in the bag area, look for a very small metal circle, about 1/8" diameter, with a hole in it about this ○ big.. This is the vacuum port. Use an old DRY toothbrush to clean it out. If this doeas.t take care of it, the diaphragm (Vacuum motor) is bad.

SOURCE: Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off

Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.

Check the hose. Take the hose off the vacuum cleaner, if possible. If the clog doesn't shake out, try running something down the hose. Don't poke a hole in the hose.

Shower works fine when cold but hotter it gets the less water flow there is


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

if you have strong hot water pressure in the other parts of the house, you may have a clogged or defective shower control valve.

I am having problems setting the alarms on my Emerson Smart Set clock


Directions for Resetting the Daylight Savings Time (DST) Start & End Dates on the Emerson Research Smartset Dual Alarm Clock Radio (cks5055s):

  • This should work for all Smartsets, but I cannot make the guarantee (and no, I don't have any other directions, sorry)!
  • Adjusting the DST Start Date on an Emerson Research Smartset:
    1. Depress & hold the MONTH/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons (at the same time). After 3 seconds the display will show the DST 'start' month, week, and date. It should be alternately showing "4 F" (April and first week week) and "4. 1".
    2. While still holding the MONT/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons, press the DOWN (or "-") button 3 times, until the display is showing "3" (March) and the week as "F2". It should alternately flash "3 F2" and "3. 11".
    3. After this is set, the clock should "automatically" reset itself
  • Adjusting the DST End Date on an Emerson Research Smartset:
    1. Depress & hold the MONTH/DATE and the ALARM2 buttons (at the same time). After 3 seconds the display will show the DST 'end' month, week, and date. It should be alternately showing "10 L" (October and last week week) and "10. 28".
    2. While still holding the MONT/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons, press the UP (or "+") button 1 time, until the display is showing "11" (November) and the week as "F". It should alternately flash "11 F" and "11. 4".
    3. After this is set, the clock should "automatically" reset itself

One thing to note, if you ever have to change the lithium backup battery for the Smartset clocks, it will revert back to it's factory defaults and you'll have to go through his all over again.

My hoover steam cleaner will not put down the soap solution? Any suggestions!


The line may be clogged.
If you look in the tank see anything blocking?
No? Okay moving on. You may need to remove a cover or covers.
Find the lower end of the line / tube.
Carefully remove the line.
Now with safety glasses on take a can of air, and blow the the line & sprayer out. Replace all parts you removed.
In the tub, shower or outside. Add vinegar & distilled water to tank let set for 1 hour then see if it will work. Let the water go down the drain or outside. If this don't work you may have a bad sprayer switch.
Please let us know.

Don't know how to use carpet shampooer


You should have the new aquamate, it has a blue top to fill with the water and water/soap solution that pops down into place. You will need to use your power nozzle hose and tube, connect it to your shampooer (make sure to connect the power connection just like the power nozzle). Fill your water up, large compartment is for cold water only and the smaller compartment is for one cap full of soap then the rest filled with cold water. Start with just a splash of water or an empty basin in the rainbow. The trigger will control your water spray and the brush underneath. There are two levers on the back of the shampooer marked with a shower head and a bar of soap. Use the soap with the shower head and the soap on and the water only with just the shower head on. You will want to also go over the area shampooed with both off to **** up the remaining water. Make sure to clean your floor thoroughly before shampooing.

My bissell pro heat 2X will not work, no water or solution comes out, what can I do?


I think the instructions should have the user rinse the solution passage with water. The soap probably clogged your spray nozzles. I had the same problem, I used a toothpick to poke to hole open again. The solution sprays only. I can't figure out why the water is not spraying out though.
