I think I have bad news for you. It sounds to me like you put the flashlight made out of metal, that conducts electricity across the pins of your cordless vacuum cleaner charger and accidentally short circuited the charger and it went poof. Poof is not a good thing. It may be possible, though I doubt it,
that there is a fuse inside the charger that can be replaced. I would check a small appliance repair company as to the cost of fixing this before I gave it to them. I think it would be more expensive than it costs to purchase it. That is, if there is a replaceable fuse. If you can tell me the name and company, I could do a little research myself. I hope this is helpful to you. Let me know if I guessed right about what happened. Thanks.
Best Regards,
Mark

I have a Dyson DC35. It has just stopped working. The green light on the charger is on and the vacuum is plugged into the charger, but it is like the vacuum is completely dead.


I had a similar problem. I have it on the wall mount and it turns out the plug that goes into the dyson to charge the battery had become unseated from the mount. I pushed it back in ("click") and that fixed it.

Vacuum cleaner does not work


most upright vaccums have a reset button at lower rear area of the vaccum. operates similar to gfi plug reset, push button back in usually with small screwdriver. is your debris bag to full? power brush jammed with debris? hose plugged? this will cause motor to over heat and in turn kick out reset button. always unplug power cord before putting fingers in areas where moving parts are!!

Magic chef model #MCWC45A Serial # 0902mcwc45a09720. It is a bit over a year old. it just went dead. no compressor sound.No interior light. Unplugged it, and after a day plugged it back the the compressor...


Hi,

It sounds like the compressor is going bad, but you can try to change the start components and overload to make sure they aren't at fault......

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

My irobot (Roomba)is only working for 10 mins then


It should take about 6 hrs to charge. I had the same problem and reset the charging circuit. 1) Charge it until the green light comes on. 2) Unplug and pull battery out. 3) hold down the power on button 15-30 seconds. 4.) Put the battery back in, plug in the charger (direct - not through the dock) and charge for 72 hrs. Then, run at Max clean until the "I'm dead" tune plays.

Roomba just runs in small circles


i just recently had someone bring in a roomba discovery and all it would do is stay in a tight 4 tile area and go in circles. battery was fully charged and all bumpers were clear.

i took a can of air blast for cleaning computers and blasted the area on the bottom underneath the sensor and watched as several dust bunnies came flying out.gave it a few more blasts for good measure and put it back on the floor and hit power then clean buttons.

thing went in same tight circle for 2 passes then the circle got bigger for 2 more passes , blue light indicator came on and it made a straight line dash across to closed door and started following the edge and criss-crossing the room.

called the owner back in to test and it repeated the same moves when she started it and all appeared to be working normal again.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Bissell 3590 Cleanview Bagless Upright Vacuum. The vacuum is less than a one year factory warranty and the best thing to do is to contact the Bissell Factory to see where the nearest factory authorized dealer is in your area including there address and phone # and they should be able to fix or repair the vacuum under the factory warranty. Also, you can order an owner’s manual from the factory and to give them the model # and serial # and they will send one out in the mail or they will instruct you to download the owner’s manual from the Bissell website. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

My Bissel stopped working and have no clue why?


Try Bissel .com, maybe you can download a manual from there. But if it just quit, the cord maybe bad. Alot of times if you unplug the cord by pulling on the cord rater then the plug, you cause the wire to eventaully break. That would be the first thing I would check. ( I am assuming that your vac just went completely dead.)
