Can I safely bypass the thermo switch on my Panasonic vacuum cleaner? It has a chronic issue of shutting down after vacuuming about 200 square feet of carpet.


I would make sure the filters are clean for this vacuum. Dirty filters will cause a motor to overheat and trip the thermal switch. If this machine has bags make sure the bag is not full. On some machines there is a filter under the bag where it meets the motor housing. I would not recommend bypassing the thermal switch. It is there for your protection. The motor could possibly burn up without it.

How do I repair an Olympia 2ltr Vaccum Flask that only keeps liquid hot for 2 hours


It may not need fixed.

Always preheat (or precool) a flask prior to use.

Fill it right up to eliminate any airspace above the hot liquid. That will help to keep things hotter for longer.

If this still does not work, the outer skin of the vacuum flask may be damaged and there is no longer a vacuum to insulate the contents.

Is there a trigger handle to turn off and on


no betty, stupid bit of kit imo, no operating switch, just on/off at the switch, which heats the water up. i measured 500ml of water heated using my kettle, put the top on, switched on, and waited. first time the steam didn't come out of the nozzle, so i removed the end and cleaned the nozzle with water, blew down the end from the big end, and replaced it, steam came out. big grumble though, the steam coming out is not that warm, don't advise you to, but i directed against my fingers, it's only hot at the exit of the pointing bit, used it to try and clean floor tiles and grout, complete waste of time. i wouldn't advise anyone to buy one.

Where can I buy a stopper for my Aladdin flask no. SB950H stopper has a piece broken off the side and will not seal regards Maureen Perry (Australia)


Hello, well over here in the US we have several places. You can rubber or cork stoppers stoppers at Lowes or at an Ace Hardware store. Not sure what you will be putting in the flask but if you are looking to purchase on line, then check out Fisher Scientific. Enter the search term flask stopper and a whole gaggle of selections come up for you to click on drill down and read the type you want. They have glass, rubber, silicone and all kinds of stoppers.

Yes, you probably need to replace the belt. Below I have listed a link to the owners manual which has instructions on how to change the belt and a link to the replacement belt you need. Hope it helps you!

Here is the owners manual which goes over some troubleshooting problems.

http://www.fantom.com/fantom/manuals/Cyclone.pdf

At first I would think it was the thermal overload, which is covered in the manual. But I would guess that you have let it sit for 30 minutes to cool down and tried again and the vacuum still didn't work.
I would think you may have one of four problems.
1. Your thermal overload was tripped and is stuck and will need replaced.
2. You have a clog in your vacuum lines or the brush roller is froze, which keeps causing the thermal overload to trip.
3. Your power cord has a short, which would need replaced.
4. Your power switch is bad, which would need replaced.
Out of these 4 possible problems I would say the only one you could fix on your own would be problem #2. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged and take the brush roller off and clean it, make sure it moves free. Check your vacuum lines to make sure you do not have a clog, other wise the motor does not get air flow to cool it down causing the thermal overload to trip. As for problem 1, 3, and 4 I would suggest taking it to a repair shop.
Hope this helps, post back.

DC07 cutting out


Hello,
I sounds that your thermal fuse is cutting out. By no means try to bypass this thermal fuse. It protects your product from catching on fire. Replace the thermal fuse at a service center. How old is this product?
Okay,

Hoover windtunnel will NOT turn on


You have to remove the motor cover, There I believe 5 screw, take off the light lens and remove the screw holding the light. It should then pull off. You say you have power to the Vac, but do you have power to the motor. There also is a thermo by the motor, sometimes they open up, then the motor won't run.
