Question about Vacuums

Open Question

My Jacuzzi Tracker 4x just "stopped"..there is a nice strong flow of water going into it, but the wheels just aren't turning. I've tried the following to no avail: 1. blocked suction for a few seconds underwater with my hand (this has worked in past) 2. try to move front wheels back and forth (but they won't budge...back wheels do move on track though) Should I start taking it apart?

SOURCE: Roomba Discovery wiggles back and forth and turns over and over

No matter your model Roomba, this occurs when Roomba has gone "crazy." Its brain is no longer working properly and you can usually tell this when you've cleaned the dickens out of it a few times and the behavior is still the same. There's only one possible user fix and that is to take out the battery, hold down the power button for 20-30 seconds then reinsert the battery.

If that doesn't do the trick, IRobot might send you something called an Ozmo which you put in the data port to rewrite Roomba's brain. Unfortunately this requires it to be under warranty unless you get lucky. Good luck, all!

SOURCE: dyson suction loss

make sure the filters in the bottom are clean, then remove the canister and you will need to clean it thouroughly, pay close attention to the upper section inside where the "cones" come togetheri have read that they are prone to clog up here and lose suction, google dyson suction loss or how to clean a dyson ect...pay attention to getting the rod that releases the bottom to dump back in the correct place or it will not work right. a few write ups tell about this!

SOURCE: shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out

Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

SOURCE: I have a electrolux Pronto 2 in 1 and the suction

There is a filter inside the main filter. Once that filter gets clogged it will loose suction. Pull the filter and clean it, you can wash it by hand. Turn the unit roller side up and check for a small screw cover that you can use a dime to loosen. This cover is used to remove the roller unit. Once out check and clean then check the gear assy. for miss-alignment.

My Bissell carpet shampooer will not dispense water or cleaning solution, nor is the "flow indicator" spinning


most of the Bissell carpet cleaners that have the water heating feature stop pumping water at one time or another. Make sure the belt is still on the pump and if it is then the problem is probably in the heater core in the handle. Hard water deposits plug the tiny little water ways inside the heater core. Pull the heater core and take it apart and clean it with a strong scrub brush and I think vinegar works for cleaning I was told. I just use soap and a brush. Then flush all your lines with hot water. The cause is from hard water deposits or leaving the soap in the cleaner after you use it. Both will stop it from pumping water

Is vinyl floor tile strong enough for wheelchair...I am always in the kitchen, cooking


No- It may work for awhile but the wheels on the chair will cut into the tile. If the wheels are thick- over 2 inches thick and are tire type it would help. Try it out - if you see ridges on the tile- Stop- the tile is too soft.

My Henry as had some water in it it comes on then trips out how can I fix it


I don't know if this will help or not since you've probably been trying to use it since the water incident, but you could try turning it off and then placing it into a bowl of UNCOOKED rice for a few hours. The rice will absorb all the water leaving your phone nice and dry.

When I press the foot pedal it just whines until I manually move the hand wheel and it starts sewing. It will sew but each time I stop I have to "help" it get started by turning the hand wheel. ...


Have you checked the tension setting and also, see if the belt spins free when you press on the foot petal. If the belt seems tight and isn't slipping it's something else. Belts aren't hard to change. Just difficult because you kinda/sorta don't take no for an answer and with slight force, get the old one out and squeeze the new one in while turning the wheel by hand with a little pressure. Seems wrong but that's how they change them in the shop!

Light keeps flashing on top of canister of my Hoover Wind Tunnel but I emptied and cleaned it well. It sounds right when I turn it on then it goes into this sound like something is stuck but there...


sounds like a possible plug ,then when you first start it up the plug gets stuck a gain.
try taking hose off the unit and running water through hose .if water flows good ,check and see if lid is secure when closed.

Doesn't return the dirty water to the tank, after apply the water


My Bissel has been having problems sucking the dirty water back into the tank. It's like it works for half a dozen uses and then just stops working. After I turn it on and off for a couple of hours trying to troubleshoot the issues it just starts working out of the blue again and sucks up the dirty water. I know there is a yellow stopper that goes up and can stop the flow but that's down and not the issue here.

Sprays soap, but not water


My Bissell is quite fussy. Sometimes I have to wiggle and push down the tank before the water will start to flow. The water doesn't flow properly if the soap container is low - I fill it with water when rinsing. It has a viewport with a red cross that turns when the water flows. Sometimes just removing that and the white filter below (and putting them back) makes it go. Mine is easy to take apart - 6 screws in the base unit and the top comes off. There are two water tubes going into the handle hinge under where the water tank goes - very easily squished or damaged. Last time the water stopped flowing, I ran it with the cover off and just fiddled around with the tubes and away it went. Maybe it is spraying soap only. The water flows up through the handle to the finger valve and heater. Some people say the heater in the upright/handle gets plugged. I haven't had that apart, but it should be easy to bypass the heater.
