Hi.

You may need to replace the filter.

Call Ecoquest at the number listed on the owners manual to get a replacement filter. Filter can also be purchased online.

Roomba 550 stops after 30 seconds of operating. Battery was replaced 1 yr ago to the date. Also makes screeching noise. Did clean the gear box in 1/13 but didn't put lube on gears.


OK, then maybe you should diassemble the machine and put some lubrication on the gears. Make sure everything is in it's correct place when re-assembly. Make siure the fan blade that creates the suction isn't damaged or even cracked. If it is, replace it. If it's stopping shortly after starting, it may have something OUT OF PLACE, that's causing to much friction.

Hi My bissell proheat 2x 9500 is making a loud noise when the brushes are moving. I replace both belts and cleaned the brushes. Can you think of anything else it could be.


Hello there,
Try using other brush attachments, as broken bearings in a brush attachment will cause noise. If these troubleshooting techniques do not work, you may need to service the engine.
Remove the filter and bag of the machine and make sure that they are not clogged or full of debris. Clean any filters according to the instructions for your model or replace the bag. Excessive debris will make the engine run noisily.
Inspect the hose of the vacuum and remove any large debris that may be clogging the inside of the tube. Large amounts of dust, as well as stones or other hard materials that bounce, may cause a loud noise in the engine.
Remove the housing that conceals the engine of your machine and inspect the fan for damage or clogging. Remove any dirt or debris that may hinder the movement of the fan. Inspect the fan for any damage such as bent or excessively sharp blades. Replace the fan blades as needed; contact your vacuum manufacturer if the fan is damaged. The replacement part will include instructions.
Tighten the fan with a ratchet if it is loose on the assembly. A loose fan will make a rattling sound as the motor revs.
Wipe dirt and dust from the frame of the engine. Large quantities of dirt or dust around the motor can cause it to overheat, which can cause vibration and loud noise.
Look for corrosion around the engine. If the engine is corroded, it must be replaced.
Grease the bearings of the engine if you hear a grinding noise from the vacuum. Greasing is often performed through ports in the engine, or by removing the bearings. However, the actual greasing method is model-specific. Consult your owner's manual or send the vacuum to a service professional for this service.
Inspect the inside of the vacuum cleaner for other worn parts or broken pieces. Worn or broken pieces can cause loud noises to occur. Remove the broken part and order new materials from the vacuum manufacturer or take the machine in for service.
Hope this information was helpful to you. All the best. Elect_Comp

How can I fix my Lasko E20739 tower fan, when the motor stops running?


That fan has an electronic (computerized) control board which sometimes malfunctions. Nothing new there, right?

The problem is that the cost of the repair can excede the price of a brand new replacement, with a warranty to boot.

You may take it to a service depot and get it checked out, provided you get an estimate and this is done free of charge.

When the vacuum is turned on, it makes a HORRIBLE noise. I thought the belt was bad. Removed it, looks fine. Turned on the unit w/o the belt/roller brush. Same noise. I don't know what else to check. Help...


You have probably broken the motor fan. An out of balance fan creates a great deal of noise and vibration. Fans are inexpensive, but require a good deal of disassembly for replacement.

I have a DC25 that will not pick anything up. It seems to be throwing everything back out somewhere. It only powers on when its not in the upright position. There is also a strange noise when it's turned...


The discharge is just the brush kicking whatever you try to vacuum to the rear of the vacuum. Without suction, that's the results. If there are no clogs throughout the hose, including the piece that's in the power nozzle, then the fan assembly is probably shot. The noise, probably a rattling noise could be pieces of the fan that have broken off.
The fan assembly should be able to be replaced, but unless you know what you're doing, take it to an authorized shop. It's possible that the motor and fan assembly are one piece, so both would need replacing.

Flair Cleaner makes squeaking noises


There are two items that could squeak:
If it squeaks when pushing/pulling it on carpet, WHILE NOT RUNNING, then the wheels are squeaking when they rotate on the wheel shaft. If so, one drop of oil at the shaft would fix it.

If it squeaks WHILE RUNNING, mostly while pulling backwards on carpet, then the belt is slipping. You may wish to set the nozzle height setting for a higher pile carpet, or could replace the rubber belt.

Brushes do not spin


The manual suggests cleaning the filter screen near the brush assembly. This is located on the bottom of the unit. In cleaning this it did not successfully help. I then proceeded to take the cover (blue) off the motor an brush drive and worked my way to the gear assembly. This is where I found the actually problem.

The problem: The brushes are driven by a turbine wheel operated with suction from the vacuum. In my unit the turbine and bearings became loose or slipped to the point that the worm gear lost contact with the additional gears that drive the brush. When resetting the assembly so that ample contact is established the unit began to operate fine.

This can be complicated to explain and illustrate therefore taking the unit in for repair is recommended. If you are confident in repairing the unit yourself then go for it.
