Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I can't read the display on bright mornings - light too weak. I notice that the RC-7290 has display adjustment but can't find this for the RC-700 model.

Unfortunately you are correct, the RC-7290 has a switch to adjust brightness, the RC-700 only has the one brightness setting, which yours is on. It's possible the LED's are starting to fail, or the actual board they are plugged into is starting to fail, but I doubt that is the case. If you need one with a brighter display you are unfortunately stuck with no option but to replace the unit.

Thanks
Tim

    Ah ok, hopefully you can just take it back then! But yes, definitely get one that has an adjustment or is bright enough for you...

Amber flashing light while on home base. New, pulled tab, placed on dock. First time said charge err1, took out battery and replaced. Now just flashes amber. Is this correct?


Your manuals are here. Flashing lights must be covered. A quick look at the site says flashing red is bin full. In fact, I found it. Flashing Amber is CHARGING.

Roomba troubleshooting roomba irobot 700 series wont work?


What sort of light do you see when you correctly place it onto it's charger? Green light is what you want to see. Otherwise it doesn't have a charge. I would check to see if it needs a cleaning.

Information display is faded and can barely read it, what is the proplem?


Often this happens when the display is not receiving the voltage it is designed for. It's common for battery fueled devices have displays loss readability. My guess in your case however is if the battery was on it's way out you would have noticed it long before the dimming of the display.

You can take it to an electronic repair place, or contact the company and see if they might swap it out (depending on age). And if you are a tried and true DIY guy open it up and put an ohm meter on each connection, looking for a break or more likely a cold solder joint.

Sorry I am out of silver bullets for the VZ-11.

Need manual for Travel Companion Model S1500 Alarm Clock


Travel alarm clocks can have varying instructions, depending on the type of clock you are using. Here are some tips for use that will apply to any alarm clock.

  1. Power source
    • Travel alarm clocks will need to have some sort of power source. Depending on the type of alarm clock, it might be battery-powered or it might have a cord that needs to be plugged in. Battery-powered alarm clocks can take mini watch batteries, AAA batteries or sometimes AA batteries. Travel alarm clocks, because of their tiny size, usually have the small batteries that need to be bought from a watch store or a dollar store. Before you leave, make sure you have a working power source and can turn it on.
    Changing the time
    • After you reach your final destination, power the alarm clock on. Now you'll need to set the time and date correctly. Check a watch, cell phone or television to get the exact time and locate the buttons or dials on your alarm clock. On some, there will be a "time" or an "hour" button you need to press and hold to activate the alarm time change. While you are holding it down, turn the dial, press the hour button or press the (+) button until you notice a time change. On others, simply pressing the hour or minute button will let you change the time shown.
    Setting AM/PM
    • The AM/PM option is critical in setting your alarm clock correctly. Make sure the LCD display on your clock has a light beside the correct AM or PM setting, or look for the letters AM or PM on the display. If you get this wrong, the alarm won't go off in the morning!
    Setting alarm time
    • To set the alarm time, look for a button or a switch that says alarm. If there is a switch, move it to the alarm setting. If it is a button, you'll need to hold it down until the time starts flashing, signaling time to change the hours and minutes to the desired alarm time, or hold it down while you press the hours and minutes buttons to reach the alarm time you want.
    Turn alarm on
    • Now double-check that your regular and alarm times are correct by switching the switch back and forth again, or by pressing the alarm/time buttons long enough to read the time set. There should be a picture of a bell somewhere on your LCD display showing that the alarm is set to "on." If there isn't, look for the on/off alarm button and move it to the correct position.
    Music options
    • The last step is finding the alarm wake-up option. Not all travel alarm clocks have this option, but if yours does there will be a switch or button that lets you choose to wake up by a buzzer, the radio, a CD, or another device.

I want my Outdoor 2-Outlet Timer set for a lighting display to come on in our office at 7:30am and cut off at 1:00am each day. Essentially the lighting display will be on throughout our business day but...


I don't know what type of timer this is but usually night hours are darker colored or am/pm is marked on the dial. If you can figure where midnight is, set the off time for one hour later and set the on time to 6-1/2 hours later, counting hours around the dial.
If you can give me more info, I can help more.

I'm using my dad's old Panasonic RC-6064 alarm clock. How do I set the time and the alarm?


The Hour/Minute buttons are on the bottom of the radio. Just press the hour or minute buttons to adjust the regular time. Alarm is the same but you hold the alarm button on top.

Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off


Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.
