With these pool cleaners, there are several things that you should check. Make sure that your filter bag is not full and does not have any large debris that would hinder movement. Make sure that your impeller is not jammed or broken and check the entire drive system for objects that might have become lodged.

My shop-vac stopped mid-job with no warning

Maybe it over heated or the hose was jammed. Unplug it for a few minutes, check the hose for any stuck debris, then plug it back in. Shop vacs also come with a filter. If the filter is too dirty, it might have shut off as a safety precaution to not cause a fire. Follow directions to clean the filter. Hope this helped. Dee

My robokleen won't **** anything up, impeller not plugged or stuck, just not turning, moves just fine

i thought the problem was the grease also until i seen another sales web page decription, it said NO OIL TO LEAK OUT, so i opened it up again after it shut off every day for 10 minutes of use , but still rolled
i seen the circuit board inside the air tight pump, somehow some water must have mixed with the greased part and i dried it with a cloth put it back together and it ran for about 20 minutes, then stopped, i tightend the screws as much as i could without harming the thread holes, if you break them your out of luck, did not see any seal but im sure the factory put something to keep it water proof

Dishwasher does not drain

If you hear the pump try to engage,then you may have something stuck in the impellar wheel of the drain pump. if you have a wet dry shop vac remove the hose from the bottom of the sink or garbage disposal and attach the shop vac to this hose and drian the machine.
Then you will need to check the drain pump,the is also a chance that the main control board or timer unit is bad and needs to be replaced.just make sure first that there is nothing stuck in the drain pump

Good morning, I have a Bose lifestyle 20 music system. I bought it few years ago in USA and now I'm using it in Italy where I live. It happens that after few minutes working, it turns off the oudio output...

Are you connecting it to a 115 VAC, 60 Hertz power outlet? Check what type of outlet you have in Italy. It may not be the correct power. Therefore, you might need an adapter or convert your unit to work in Italy.

The vac is over heating. First, you should try a new filter. Also, keep in mind that after cleaning the filter, make sure that it fully dries. Using a wet or damp filter clogs it quickly. Second, turn the vac upside down and make sure that the roller is fully cleaned and free of hairs and strings. Afterwards, with the vac upside down, quickly power on and make sure that the roller spins and listen carefully for noise at the roller. There may be something stuck inside. If it doesn't spin, verify that the belt has not slipped off or broken.
Good luck.

My automatic robokleener will move for a few seconds and then stop what could this be?

Check your impeller. Often on these automatic pool cleaners, the impeller can become jammed and make movement impossible. Also, check your front and rear axles to make sure that you don't have any obstructions there.

The Air conditioning compressor will only run for short periods

You said the freon was checked then the problem may be the pressure switch located on the accumulator. It may be faulty.
