Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I just bought a westinghouse unplugged vacuum cleaner.( It is new) The design is awesome, and when it works it works great . But it has very short battery life. 1 battery lasts only about 5 minutes, and the other is even less. I did all the instructions told me as far as conditioning and charge yet I still do not get a very solid amount of vacuuming time. Is there any thing I can do?

Usually a short battery life means bad battries that aren't holding its charge. Being new I would think it would have a year's warranty on it. Find out who is the closest warranty shop and have them fix it.

How does the carpet cleaner work


Resolve carpet cleaner is a cleaner specifically designed to work on carpets. Resolve comes as a steam concentrate, a powder, a foam spray, or liquid spray. Before using the carpet cleaner you should vacuum the carpet. Resolve carpet cleaner works by being applied to the carpet then worked in with a soft bristled brush. Depending on the cleaner, it will be sprinkled or sprayed onto the carpet. Use the brush to work the cleaner down into carpet fibers. There is a waiting period for the cleaner to work, then you vacuum the cleaner out of the carpet.

Oreck xl 21 fan housing has new design. willit stillfit my older vac


It should. You can call Oreck and talk with them and give them the serial number off your vacuum and they can look it up and tell you for sure if it will fit or not.

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008....


No..Electrolux is really great about warranty service. They will help you even though you are not the original owner. http://smallappliances.electroluxusa.com/files/usa_english/0-999/OxygenOwnersManual.pdf owners manual. Here is a link to the site.
http://smallappliances.electroluxusa.com/node82.asp Also, you might check for an obstruction. The Electrrolux is thermostatically protected. Means that if there is no airflow through the motor, the motor will shut down before overheating can occur. Remove your hose from the cleaner. Drop a quarter down through it, did it come through? If not, you have a clogged hose. If it came through, remove your wand from the power nozzle, look througfh the wand, is it clogged? Now, look at the power nozzle, can you see light through the elbow? Your cleaner will come back on after it has cooled. Try the machine. It should be working now. I hope I could help to Fixya! Please let me know if I helped you. Thanks, Rene (the Vacuum Doctor)

Soap will not dispense from Bisell Pro Heat carpet cleaners


This is a design flaw. The pump design has a problem with staying primed. Only going to another brand will you solve this problem. I recommend the Royal 7900 series extractor.

Vacuum Cleaner never worked


these cordless units are no more than a broom. toss it out and go buy a real vacuum with a cord. FYI cheap vacuums are cheap vacuums. if you want something to last a do a great job you have to put out a little more money for it.

The vacuum won't turn on


it could possibly be a short in the power cord. try replacing the power cord. if that doesn't fix it, it would probably be cheaper to buy a new vacuum cleaner.
