Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Kenmore Elite 721.66463500 Microwave died. Didn't even notice until I went to use it. Changed fuse and screen asked to enter the time of day. Entered the time and hit start. The microwave buzzed for 0.5sec and it blew the new fuse I installed.. put in another fuse and the same thing happened.. I measured the resistance in the noise filter. Results: L1-L2 < 1ohm N1-N2 < 1ohm L1 or L2 - N1 or N2 = 0ohms I'm thinking I need a new filter but I also was unable to measure any resistance on the sensor (Blk to Red, Red to WH, etc..)? what shall I try next?

SOURCE: Scooba 5800 Power button Red Blinking

You probably have the manual, but here's the link to the Scooba 5800 manual anyway - just in case this would be useful to you: --> http://www.irobot.com/images/homesupport/5800_Scooba_Manual.pdf You could use a voltmeter to check the battery, but only a few months use shouldn't be enough to wear it out. If you don't have a load-tester to verify the battery's load-capacity, then you can check the voltage drop. (Assuming you can get it to contact the Scooba's circuits.) To do this, just check the battery voltage, apply a load by inserting it in the machine and turning it on, then check the battery voltage again. An excessive drop in voltage may indicate the battery needs replacing. However, the red blinking light is Scooba's indicator that it doesn't detect the battery at all. The first thing to do in this case is to clean the electrical contacts on the battery and in the Scooba. Use a damp cloth and a bit of toothpaste to rub the contacts clean on the battery and in the machine. (Toothpaste has mild abrasives in it and will clean the electric contacts without damaging them.) Make sure that both the battery and the Scooba are clean and dry before re-inserting the battery. Also, if the electric contacts in the machine are flexible matal tabs then verify that the tabs are standing up high enough to make good contact with the battery contacts. Hopefully the battery just needs it's contacts cleaned for your unit to work, but test the battery if you are sure that they are clean and seated properly to the contacts in the machine. If the battery appears to be failing, then contact www.irobot.com to cheack and see if they are still covered under your machine's warranty. Hope this helps! :)

SOURCE: Model 1697.m Bissell carpet cleaner.

You are going to want to replace the water pump on the machine. Also you might want to look into replacing the belt that runs it. If that still des not working, you probably have a clog in the hose coming form the heater element. This is VERY common with the Bissells. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore microwave model #665.61612100 is buzzing

It sound as though the magnitron is going. This is basically the heart of the whole unit. It will cost the same to replace the part as it will to replace the unit.

SOURCE: dyson dc14 died, no power after burning smrll

It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.

The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.

Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.

Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Expected longevity for Electrolux EIFLW55HMBO


Hello Connie Reiter,

You have asked essentially the same question... several times...

Perhaps you could expand on your area of concern so
that out VOLUNTEERS could get a better grasp on what you are really after...

Because the frenetic repetition indicates you are NOT GETTING what you think is a decent answer (??) from some of our MOST EXCELLENT VOLUNTEERS...

My New ELITE SEARS WASHER didn't make it out into it's EXTENDED warranty period... They had some CLOWN come to my house several times over a period of weeks... spent a lot of time on the phone and accomplished nothing.

3 months later I had to go to the store and grab (physically) a manager... to be able to USE the washer...

It was purchased as a set.

They replaced the entire washer...

Now they don't match

I have been into them (Elite) 4 times since 2005...
Our 1973 Kenmore are still working fine... we moved them to our retirement house in 2005...
Only ever changed the appliance light...

(44 years... porcelain finish, electro-mechanical timers)...
((still going strong)).

Net expectation on the NEW "STUFF"

Warranty period... period.

They are pretty but they are junk.... Sorry.

My best recommendation... keep looking!!

Pick friendly sales folks... because you are going to be dealing with them a lot...

MY OPINION... (all of this) ...
This ALL happened because of OUT-SOURCING...
and TOTALLY INCOMPETENT AMERICAN MANAGEMENT...

(Wouldn't know QUALITY if it bit them in the forehead).

I have a kenmore elite microwave oven model 363 63692301 stoped heating food ;. fan & turntable work. HELP!


Hello, two things. The mega-tron tube is gone south, or the HV diode is open/shorted to ground which will cause to open. If the microwave meta-tron tube is bad then recyle your microwave oven and buy a new microwave oven. One can buy a new microwave oven cheaper than buying a microwave tube. GB...stewbison

Ge Microwave stopped cooking, lights inside went out and the keypad doesn't lite


Check to make sure that a circuit breaker hasn't been tripped in your breaker box. If that's not the case, you can pull the microwave out and check the back for a fuse. Generally fuse access is located next to where the power cord enters the device.

Somehow our Kenmore Elte Microwave Model 721.66469500 got locked. It says CHILD on the screen. Our manual says it should say "locked" I did what they said, push start and hold for at least...


In general, unlocking a microwave is usually one of the following:

1. Push and hold 'start' until it beeps or display changes
2. Push and hold 'clear/cancel' until it beeps or display changes
3. Push 'start' several times until it beeps or display changes
4. Push 'clear/cancel' several times until it beeps or display changes
5. Push and hold 'child/lock' until it beeps or display changes

If all these suggestions fail, try unplugging the oven for ten minutes and trying again.

Replaced the motor but didn,t take notice where the pieces of foam go back in around the motor


The foam collar wraps around the outside of the fan end of the motor. It's a anti-vibration piece.

Kenmore progressive 360 will not turn off


I have the same problem. Couldn't turn it off and now it doesn't work for the floor setting (though I can now turn it off). I suspect the switch in the handle is the problem but having trouble opening the handle...

Central Vac will not turn on.


These problems are nearly exclusively caused by a bad circut board and replacing it is the fix. Bad boards can cause many different effects so its nearly impossible to be sure. The 9v signal wire is not enough to short out an entire unit so it is unlikely the hose. If it is a direct connect system and you are pulling power from the 110 somehow that would cause main unit problems but that is unlikely at best. Sounds like a failed board to me.

Best of Luck

No power for the vacuum


Hi! I work at repairing Sebos, so can certainly help.  Most probably the cable is damaged, and the two most likely places for that to happen are where it enters the plug and where it enters the rewind mechanism. Before you even think about dismantling the machine to get at that end of things, though, you need to be 100% sure that power is reaching the machine.
I know you've tried a different socket, and that you've changed the fuse (by which I assume you mean the plug-top fuse, and therefore that you're probably in the UK like I am). Good first steps. Checking the integrity of the wire in the cable is a different matter, though. There are inexpensive devices you can buy to check for voltage through normal insulation, but I don't know how deep in to this you want to get...  you've got to be pretty keen (and competent) to think of changing the cable yourself. 
If you'd like to post a response, indicating how far you want to go yourself, I can help you get in to the machine if necessary.

Sebo x1.1 - burning smell


Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.
