SOURCE: Central vac (Hoover) always on!

There should be a manual/auto switch. If it is in the manual mode, then it will run all the time. Other then that you probably have a stuck relay. But this will have a years warranty on it, so you should be able to have it serviced under warranty.

SOURCE: Fantom F11063 Cyclone Vaccum

Hi,

The only sure way recommended (and probably the safest) would be to get a service manual or at least a schematic diagram. The Fantom Cyclone XT was originally manufactured by Fantom Technologies, Inc. that closed in October 2001. The replacement for a Fantom Cyclone XT would be Westinghouse Wired Deluxe Edition (either a WST1550 or a WST1551). These replacement products are now handled by Salton Inc. Perhaps you may inquire from them:

  • Salton Inc.
  • 1 800 616 8689
  • salton@saltonusa.com
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Spare wire?

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

I took a picture of the Sebo X4 wiring in the handle of the machine for you. This is a brand new machine taken out of the box, this is how the wiring should look. You'll see that there are 5 total wires here. You'll see the positive and negative from the cord at the top, and the wires that come up from the bottom of the handle are below plug. There is a blue, white, and black wire coming up from the bottom of the handle.

The blue and white should be on spade connector below the white cord lead, and on the right hand side the single black wire from the handle should be attached beneath the black cord lead.

If the machine is still working, then it must have been the Blue or ground wire that you removed, correrct? I'm not sure if this will hurt the machine, but the wire is definitely there for a reason, and if you still have it you may want to reconnect it.

If you'd like to contact Sebo directly and speak with a product specialist there, their phone number is;
800-334-6614.

SOURCE: we have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was

It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the carbon brushes wear down which is normal. However, the contact wire from the brush to its connector is set so that when the brush wears down, the wire is short enough to stop the spring etc from damaging the commutator. The end result is that you get an intermittent operation of the motor before it finally dies.
I believe all the DYSONs come with the option of both motors and you cannot really tell which motor you have until you take the thing to bits. You also cannot change motors without changing various other parts on the hoover. On my DC 05 the writing on the YDK motor tells you which one it is.
This website www. tasweb.org ,select the DC 05 option and scroll down tells you how to take the thing to bits. A search on google etc for your DC 07 may give similar results. Best of luck!

How can I empty the dust from the clear plastic holder in my Dyson DC 39 upright?


Hi David, it's Jack at Dyson.

Sorry for any confusion, but DC39 is a Dyson cylinder vacuum rather than an upright. I can provide further help in emptying your particular machine, but I will need to know exactly which model you own. If possible can you double-check this for me?

If you'd prefer to get in touch with our experts directly, you're welcome to do so. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

What should I look for wen buying a DC27 upright vacuumed cleaner? How do I check age as the model was brought out in 1997 an I don't want a old vacume?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Apologies for any confusion, but the Dyson DC27 upright was introduced in 2009. It's no longer in production as it's since been replaced with more recent technology, so it's not a model that's available to buy from Dyson direct. If you find a retailer with new stock available, they would be best placed to provide you with further information about its age and condition.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any additional advice you're welcome to contact our experts by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do I change to different powers


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24's brush bar is powered by its own motor. This means the brush bar can be turned on for carpets and rugs, and off for hard floors or delicate rugs.

To turn off the brush bar, just press the silver brush control switch located next to the red on/off switch. Press it a second time to turn the brush bar back on.

Runs for a few seconds, then stops


Hi Bente, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC16 was the first Dyson handheld vacuum, launched back in 2006. It would have come with a 2-year guarantee, but due to its age it's likely that this has expired now.

However, our experts would be happy to take you through some quick diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. This will help determine which part may be at fault - and therefore, what may need replacing to resolve the issue.

If you would like some advice, you can reach our team of experts directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Canister doesn't fit tightly on base.


Hi Becky, it's Jack at Dyson.

From what you've described, it sounds like part of the machine isn't assembled correctly. This may explain the unusual noise and the change in performance you've noticed, as a leak in the airflow system may occur if part of the cyclone assembly is fitted incorrectly.

It's worth removing the cyclone pack and clear bin again to make sure everything is attached together as normal, and nothing is out of place. Keep an eye out for any accidental damage that may have been caused.

If you're still not sure after you've given this a go, our experts would be happy to offer some further advice. You can reach us directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Green light on DC44 but nothing is happening


Hi Emma, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC44 Animal doesn't seem to be working correctly. If the green LED indicator on the machine lights up, but the machine itself doesn't run, this suggests the battery is flat. It could mean that it's not recharging correctly when connected to the docking station.

It would be worth temporarily disconnecting and removing the charger cord from the docking station and plugging it directly into the machine - the machine should recharge fully within 3.5 hours. If the machine then works as normal the charger cord may not have been corrected fitted to the docking station.

If you'd like further advice from our experts after you've given this a try, please call the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

I replaced a Intermatic light timer with a GE 15086 timer. I have read several solution, but none fit my wire sceme. This is hooked up as a 3-way switch so the second switch can turn outside lights on...


1) GE 15086 is not a 3-way timer.
GE programmable timers are for single-pole switch replacement only. I have tested this timer, and own several GE timers, and many other brands.

2) Open following link to identify timers that work for 3-way switching.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

3) After buying correct timer, then you need to review wiring diagrams carefully because the timer replaces 1 of the 3-way switches, but other 3-way switch has to be wired exactly right to match your brand of timer.

4) Links on page above show manuals for each of the 3-way timers. Compare wiring for each timer with Intermatic wiring that you are replacing, because Intermatic is wired differently than Aube.

5) Or just buy another Intermatic ST01C or EJ500 or EI400, etc, and wiring with change out 1 for 1.

6) Add a comment for more free help.

My Dyson DC17 Animal brush roller makes noise when it is spinning but not when using the wand. The belt around the roller seems fine and it is not plugged. What else can I check for?


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

You may find it useful to remove the soleplate from the base of the machine and make sure that the brush bar is fitted correctly.

Once this is done, make sure there are no hairs or threads wrapped around the brush barm, particularly
at the ends.

With the soleplate removed you can also ensure that the brush bar and housing are free of blockages.

Once checked, re-fit the soleplate and test the machine.

I hope that this information is useful to you. If you need any further help or advice, contact one of our Ask Dyson experts on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards
Darran
