    Was in the middle of vacuuming when the vacuum stopped and the number on the panel which shows suction button is flashing. Vacuum will turn on but once it gets to suction 3 it stops???? Help would be great.

There is a relay board on the unit (where the dirt goes) There are two small wires that connect and usually a switch near by. This switch has an Auto and Manual setting. If set to manual the unit will run all the time or until set back to Auto. If it is set to Auto and is still running, unplig the two small wires. They are sometimes on screw terminals behind a round plactic cover. It does not matter which terminal the wires go back on just one on each.

If the unit turns off the problem is in the wire running to each valve or a paper clip is shorting across the pins of a wall outlet. (something like this).

If the unit does not turn off once the wires are removed, the relay in the unit is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Time to call a pro unless you have good electrical skills.

Hope this helps!

Rainbow pn-2e circuit breaker


The circuit breaker could be defective.

It seems stopped up. Picked up pieces of styrofoam


If the Rainbow kept running but the power nozzle stopped, it could be the Circuit Breaker PN2E PN2 that tripped. Try resetting to see if that fixes problem.
If the Rainbow stopped running, the auto reset could have tripped. Wait about an hour to see if it resets.

Nutone cv353 unable to stop


You may have a stuck relay or one of your access port switches may be bad. According to the owners manual: "A complete check of all Wall Inlet and Power Unit low voltage control lead connections (external yellow leads). Turn system off by removing fuse or tripping circuit breaker at
house fuse box."

My series 90L suddenly stopped and would not restart. A check of the circuit breaker found it tripped. The vac would not turn on when the circuit breaker reset. Using an AC voltage sensor indicated power...


From the description it sounds as if there had to be a short in the unit somewhere. This is what would have tripped the breaker. the fact that it is not tripping could mean that there is a fusible link or that the wires or whatever have burned back from the short, and are no longer shorting out.

My e wave microwave appears to be in fine working order until the door is opened. It then trips the breaker and ceases working. Ater the house breaker is reset, the power is restored to the microwave...


You may have a short circuit on the INTERIOR LIGHT BULB circuit in your microwave.

This might explain why the breaker trips every time you open the door.

If so, you would have to unplug and disassemble the unit in order to access the wires and light bulb socket inside the case in order to troubleshoot and repair the problem.

If you are unfamiliar with safe electrical troubleshooting and repair procedures, please be extremely careful or consider hiring an electrician to do the work. There are some hazardous components inside which remain dangerous even after the unit is unplugged.

Good luck.

Depends on what is wrong with it. Two basic problems that can exist - Circuit breaker can be tripped Blades can be caught up.
Unplug unit and re-set breaker on bottom of unit. Get an appropriate size allen wrench and insert into bottom of unit and manually turn chopper blades. Remove allen wrench, plug in and start unit up.

The circuit breaker on the unit pops almost every time I use the unit, what might be causing this?


Hi, when the breaker trips every time you turn it on, the unit has a dead short. It may have a frayed wire where it goes into the units motor, or the motor it self may be shorted out.A bare hot wire that touches metal will pop the breaker right away. I would look the cord over very well to see if anything may be bare. If not, the problem is further into the motor section of the unit, and more then likely the motor has failed. This is why the breaker is there for this reason. In case it overloads or you have a short, it trips to keep the unit from burning. Please keep me posted.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
