This unit has the outer window, and a half moon window behind it. Check to make sure the 2 screws holding the half moon window are tight and that the plastic hasn't broken. The 2 windows at the bottom cener merge together, they may have come apart. Usually when one or the other window is out of place, it will cause a drag. You may have to replace the half moon window.

Oreck vacuum seems to drag and be extremely heavyto push. Why. What can i do


On some carpets you may need a vacuum that can adjust the height for thicker or longer carpets. If it worked ok on your carpets before it may need a new belt or brush roll.

How do I fix a wand that won't fully retract and sticks out of the bottom causing me to loose scuction?


Hello Collet .

First I would check the hose at the bottom of the machine to see if its blocked , then I would take off the pipe at the base of the machine and then push a pole through it to clear any blockage also take the wand out completely this should solve the problem.

also goggle the make of the dyson vac and get an exploded view of the parts and you'll see how they fir and can then be replaced or new parts bought etc

hope this is of assistance

My Bissil Pro Heat works great except when I push the shampooer it sounds n feels like the front drags accros the floor like it is catching on something and is not gliding like it should smoothly n...


Check to see if there is a broken or cracked part on the plastic on the front or the bottom of the machine where it glides across the carpet. Usually it is the part where the machine sucks the dirty water up in to the machine that is broken and catches on the carpet. If you need one of these parts I have them new and pre-owned.

Now I know why the bissell is dragging. There is no middle position on the handle. There is either upright or low (for under furniture) What can I do?


Hi Eva! If your machine is dragging on the carpet, one of the clear nozzles on the front may be off alignment. Here's a link to our FAQ to help you with the dragging: http://www.bissell.com/FAQDetail.aspx?id=1102&cid=ccsocial

HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MACHINE JAMMING UP AROUND BOBBIN AREA WHEN TRYING TO FREEHAND EMBROIDER IT STARTS OFF OK THEN QUICKLY JAMS UP HAVE ADJUSTED THE FOOTPLATE SO THERE ARE NO TEETH


Check your tension first by sewing a wide zig zag stitch. Does the top of the stitch and the bottom look identical? The sides of the stitch should look like a hole where the thread disappears to the other side, with no extra thread from the other side coming through. It also should lie flat and not be puckering in the middle. When it looks identical and no puckering the tension is correct. Use the same type of material and thread you will be using for the embordery. The bottom side of the stitch is effected by the TOP tension. The top side of the stitch by the BOTTOM tension.

Are you stretching the material you're hand embordering with a hoop?

The dog feed needs to be totally down and if your machine has an adjustment the tension on the foot should be lessened too. (not all machines allow for that adjustment).

Last but not least make sure you have the right needle for the job and material.

Jamming up in the bobbin area would most likely be from the top tension being too loose but also make sure the material isn't getting pulled down in by stretching it with an embordery hoop. Do use a presser foot... a wide clear one is best.

Hoover carpet cleaner won't dispense solution or water. Everything else works.


1.Remove bottom tank and look for pinched hose. 2.Use small screwdriver or toothpick on small holes which disperse solution-remove rotating brush first. These were problems with my steamvac (f5861-900 model).

I have a model 605d ,the machine work fine except it will not sew! i look over the machine it look ok ! i am found out that top spool thread and the bottom bobbin thread are not coming together to sew!


You have to do the first stitch using the handwheel so that the top thread catches under the bobbin thread and then you can pull the top thread which will bring up the bobbin thread. put both threads to back of machine. Now you can sew.

Every time you re-thread you need to do this.
