Question about Sharper Image Vacuums

Open Question

I have the Sharper Image EV-HD15 Cool Mist Humidier Ultrasonic 1.6 gal humidifier. I purchased it last year. Yesterday I took it apart to clean as per instructions. I feel that I may not have place the round housing (which is secured with 4 screws) back correctly. When I turned the machine on it made a whirring sound. I took the unit apart again and rotated that round piece moving the opening away from the opening on the tower. The whirring sound was reduced but there was still a sound. I don't remember any sound at all before. I am unable to locate my manuel.

Those trim pieces SLIDE off by opening the front where the bag goes, Take a pair of pliers and slide them out. You might have to use a screwdriver to help initiate the grabbing of the slide.

SOURCE: Bissell 9400 Carpet Cleaner

I have a Bissell 9200 Proheat 2x with same issue.
theres a circuit board in the handle that controls the DC brush motor and a handle release switch near the back wheel. Its either the motor, circuit board or release switch, Ive isolated my brush stoppage to the circuit board by testing. If your handy at all you can test to see what it is. Begin by disassembling the handle by removing several screws, be careful as there will be two different lenghts of screws, inside the handle is the dreaded circuit board brain screwed to the back handle attached with four wires via connector. the grey and black wires go down to the motor and handle release switch (theres a switch that stops the brush motor when you put the handle up in the bottom by the wheel), yellow and red wires are 120 volts form main switch, use a circuit tester to check for voltage from yellow and red and switch to continuity to check if the motor has an open circuit or busted handle switch. I suggest using a digi cam and take pics of disassembly and masking tape to mark hoses if your going to disassemble the bottom. FYI Bissel will not let you order that circuit board but will let you order the motor, I dont know about the switch. Looks like Im going to build my own circuit board from radio shack parts , Im not sending my Bissel back to Bissell, I could go on and on about that LOL.

SOURCE: my bissell powerbrush won't **** up the water

had same problem - carpet soaked with dirty water and very little, if any, cleaning fluid used. Easily remedied. Removed water resevoir and found that the rectangular shaped washer at the top of the front cover (the bit you had unscrewed to give a good clean) had become dislodged. It has small lugs on either size which lock on to the plastic opening when pushed down firmly. Resevoir then sits on top and makes full connection, also ensure that grey locking handle is fully pushed down.

Seemed to me that the water wasn't being sucked up as there was air getting in and this has down the trick. Sorry if this is difficult to follow but all will become clear when you look for the black washer! Good luck

O-Cedar Pro-Mist trigger doesn't work

This person is asking about an O'Cedar Pro Mist Mop. Not a vacuum or steam mop...

I too have problems with the pro mist handle not working... I called the customer care line at 1800-543-8105 and they are replacing my mop for free. You can also try to take it apart and fix it yourself, but I did that and I cant remember how it goes back together! lol Basically a spring comes loose from the pole inside of the mop handle, and that is why there is no tension in the trigger.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

You will also find information here on checking the cleaner head to ensure the brush bar is turning and instructions on how to wash the pre filter.

Electrical power down while vacuuming (not a reset)

Thank you JonahBegone!
My 4 years old Silver Moon has been power down off and on for a couple of months, but all of sudden it kept doing it. Then the power won't turn on when I plugged it in ( this turns out to be another problem, see my other posting). I took your advice on taking the hose and handle apart. I unscrewed the 5 screws, but can't pull the handle apart to look inside. I was able to see the 3 metal contact on the hose that you mentioned through a 1/4 inch gap when I forced the handle apart. I cleaned the black stuff off through the little gap by rotating the hose a few times. Then magically, my power down problem also went away. Thank you once again.
