You may have a loose connection somewhere, or maybe a bad cord.

How to properly wire the cord at the switch on Oreck XL Pilot Series? Wired it wrong during a cord replacement at the switch. I couldn't remember which prong to put the black wiring on. Switch has 3...


Joanne, when you take the screws out of the handle, and take the handle half off to expose the switch, the black wire from the handle cord goes on the front terminal on the switch that is by itself. The black wire from the power cord will go on the terminal that is facing up as you look down on it. Hope this helps!

Self propel not working


Make sure the replacement belt was the right one/size.
Make sure the self propelled is on at the handle. If you replaced the flat belt and it still pushes hard the most common problem is a broken power drive cable or actuator arm. Put the handle down and move the power drive handle forward and backward. If it moves freely watch by the headlight for the cable to move the actuator at the base. If the cable is in tact it should move the actuator. If it is broken the actuator will not move. If the actuator is broken the piece of plastic holding the cable will let the cable slide or it may be broken off completely. Replace whichever is broken.
If the cable system is ok and the belt is correct you may have a bad powerdrive assembly. I will include links to correct replacement parts.

When vacuuming carpet with the electric power brush it will ocassionly , go to zero suction mode and shut off the brush. I have tried to cause it to happen by playing with the joint areas ( handle to tube...


You gave a good start to giving us good information to help you with solving this problem-- But I need a little more information:

It sounds like you have the Electric Motor driven Power nozzle/ Floor attachment-- am I correct? (Not the type that has a little vacuum motor down at the floor attachment-- Not one that depends upon air flowing thru the unit to power the brush, -- am I correct?)

You can control the motor with a switch at the handle-- correct?

So here is the question: - when you say "the electric power brush -- goes to zero suction" -- what tells you that it 'went to zero suction'?-- the little red flag on the vacuum?-- or what?

I am suspecting something might be caught up in the floor wand-- or at the power nozzle itself-- or even in the flexible hose. Do you know how to take the hose off, and place the hand-held end, in the opening in the Miele Vacuum? Can you do that, and clear out the hose first-- and then the hose with the want connected?

If they are all clear-- we may need to open the floor plate on the floor nozzle, and check for something caught in the air passageway--

Tell us more

Hi guys, I have a bissell 9400 2x proheat with a fault. When you turn on the machine it trips the RCD in my house and makes a poping noise, i am a little technical so i had a look inside. The pcb under the...


I've seen the same problem in one of these we had in for repair. The pcb in the handle is involved with controlling the roller motor. The problem is with the motor. In my view, this machine is a triumph of design over practicality... The motor is located right at the bottom of the base - making it very vulnerable to getting wet, and as difficult as possible to get to. What happens is that the motor gets wet, rusts and seizes up, and that causes the pcb to burn out (or possibly it's so wet that there's a short circuit).
So, what do you need? You need a pcb, a brush roll motor, the patience of a saint, a very good memory for what goes where when you reassemble... and a long hard think about whether you'd recommend one of these to a friend!

Bissell Healthy Home Won't turn on


I found the solution for my vaccum!!

The top handle connects to the lower half of the handle with one phiilips head screw. The screw is halfway between the cord holder on the back. The screw had come loose and the handle has slid back away making it not make contact to send the power down to the motor.
Hope this helps someone else!

My fan belt on my hoover is broken,where is it located and how do i fit a new fan belt


Get a new belt, then remove the bottom plate. The belt goes around the brush roll and the motor shaft. If you don't see the motor shaft, then you will need to remove the top cover to get to it. The belt will stretch to go from the motor shaft to where the brush roll sits in. If this model has 2 belts, then the drive belt(flat) goes from the motor shaft to the bigger pulley close to the brush roll.

How do you take the handle apart?


Take a box cutter blade or something razor thin and locate the 2 screw covers on the handle. Pry the two covers off and remove the 2 hex screws. Pull handle apart. Done. Might want to check your elbow down on the power nozzle before you rip apart that handle though. 4 out of 5 times, the problem is in the elbow.

Did you push the reset? Check where the plug from the power head goes into the end of the handle. Sometmes the female plug gets pushed in to far, then the male part can't plug in and you will have no power to the power head. If this is the case, the the tabs on the tube inside the handle broke off and allowed the female plug to be pushed inside the handle. The other is the switch in the handle is bad, motor could also be bad. If you go to sears.com, click on the parts link, put in your complete model number and you will get a parts list and picture breakdown to look at and you can order parts here also.

Self propel will go foward, but will not reverse. Seems like handle is all the way extended.


There is a cable that connects to the handle and goes down to the powerdrive transmission. It is visible at the actuator arm on the drive if you look at the bottom of the handle where it pivots on the main housing. It will be on the right hand side, front corner of the handle bottom. You should be able to see the cable connected to the arm of the drive and will move back and forth with the top handle. Sometimes, they break at this connection. The cable may be frayed and broken, or the acuator arm may be broken where the cable connects.
This could also be a simple worn belt problem. The roller is always rotating in a direction that pulls the machine forward and if the belt is worn, the roller will turn sluggishly but still enough to pull forward, but the belt also drives the transmission and a worn belt will not have the capacity to overcome the forces involved to propel the machine backwards. Always change the belt(s) yearly.(on average)
