Depends on what is wrong with it. Two basic problems that can exist - Circuit breaker can be tripped Blades can be caught up.
Unplug unit and re-set breaker on bottom of unit. Get an appropriate size allen wrench and insert into bottom of unit and manually turn chopper blades. Remove allen wrench, plug in and start unit up.

    If your GD is plugged into a GFI outlet under the sink, you may have to reset the outlet breaker by pushing the appropriate switch on the outlet itself.

My neato is showing a message 'my vision was blocked. Please press ok (3000)'. How do I fix this?

Dust off your drop sensors. Using a cotton swab, clean the two drop
sensor windows on the bottom of your Neato Vacuum. Power cycle the unit, removing the batteries if necessary. You should be good to go.

Garbage disposer model GFC520F silently hums but not spinning

Hi! It sounds like one of your blades is jammed on something. Easy to fix! Make sure the garbage disposer is switched off (not necessary to unplug). Any large wooden handle tool (not a wooden spoon or plastic broom-they snap..1 to 1 1/2 inch diameter) axe handle, wooden broom ect., put the handle into the bottom garbage disposer on an angle. get nthe handle against the bottom and side where they come together. With gentle pressure, rotate the wooden handle until you feel it stop. This will be a blade..there are usually 2 at opposite sides inside there. Push against it till you feel it break loose in a clockwise direction. Once forced loose it should run again. Whatever jammed it will still be in there so you can to grind it up but it's advised to look with a flashlight and locate and remove the object. FYI...if your disposer is ever non-responsive, there is a red button either on the bottom or back of the disposer. This is a re-set button. Good to know. Let me know if you still have problems. Hope this fixes it for you!

Where do the wires go when i am wiring a garbage disposal using a tw o pole toggle switch

The garbage disposal shoud have three wires a green wire goes to ground,

the white wire is neutral, and the black wire is your hot. at the switch, the white

neutral wire feeds straight to the garbage disposal as does the ground, many

times the switch will either have two screws one gold and one silver and the

green is designated as ground. hot goes to the gold screw and the black wire

coming from your disposal goes to the other screw. make sure to turn off power

before working on electrical wires check with voltage meter, its not like working

on your car, if shocked it can be fatal, if unsure handle wires with insulated tools

or gloves. good luck!

Suction is gone have cleaned out all areas that can be cleaned out????is it garbage

Is it "garbage"? Not necessarily.

If you're really happy with the vacuum so far, and the motor sounds nice and smooth, it would be worth your while taking it to a service center for a tune-up.

That all depends on the price of a suitable replacement, of course.

Bionaire humidifier model:bcm7309cm How to clean the air filters?

"You should change your furnace filter once a month in the winter season and your central air filter once a month during summer months.
If you run your heat or air every day and night, have pets, or your home collects a large amount of dust, you may need to change your filter more often during very hot and very cold months.
If you use disposable filters, it's really not worth vacuuming them to reuse them. They are inexpensive enough that you should replace them instead.
Disposable filters don't work as well after only being vacuumed and they are usually in a cardboard frame and therefore don't wash well.

Before you take out the filter, however, vacuum the outside and around the filter encasement. After you remove the filter, you should vacuum behind it, too, to catch any stray dust and particles.
Replace disposable filters with new ones."
