Question about Vacuums

The motor of my farberware rotisserie won't turn. When I plugged it in a could hear a hum so I opened it up and found this soft goop on the inside of the cover and it had gotten onto some of the gears where it hardened. What is this goop and can I scrape it off the gears? Thanks.

My shop vac jsut hums


If the check ball is stuck closing airway, the strike the unit on top when its off, you may hear the ball drop and there try again. Otherwise, if that's not it, most like the fan portion inside to create air movement has separated from shaft of motor assembly. You may try top open top and reconnect, but if you not sure don't try this. Take a look at product info for possible replacement or back to store for advice.

I have a brand new KitchenAid mixer that is 5 years old and never used. I unpacked it this morning and it won't turn on, no noise, no movement, nothing. Help.


Please check manually the motor and see if it moves freely. Now make sure that the power plug and the connections to the switch are not tampered , check the continuity of the plug to the switch and to the motors.
If you notice any dirt or insects make sure that this has not clogged on the motor. If so clean using a degreasing spray- WD40- would be recommended.
If the motor is tight , lightly oil or degrease using the spray while manually rotating.
Once this is done connect the power while taking all precaution. Use the meter to check the flow of the circuit to the switch and to the motor. If there is a trip switch see that it is reset.
If there is power to the motor and still it does not work the brushes might be dirty and might need a cleaning/ reset.

Could you tell me why there is a loud humming noise when I plug the charger into the car?


Charger for what, a small vacuum?

If so, then you hear the vacuum motor,
it isn't shielded or designed for todays cars
& may not be something you want to use

Vacuum is turning on and off intermittently


Turn the vacuum ON.
Go to the plug while it is in the outlet, jiggle it and the wire going into it to see if there is a loose connection on that end.
Then go to where the wire enters the vacuum.
Jiggle that to see if that makes the vacuum stop.
If there are no problems found on either end of the wire, the next step it to open the machine and check the connections at the internal switch and the switch itself.
Let us know.

I own a Hoover Steam Vac Plus w/ Rotating Brushes (model#F5871-900), when I turn on the power I hear a medium-loud hum coming from the motor area and nothing works. What could be the issue?


the motor sounds locked up. Water gets in there and rusts the pieces together. The motor could be replaced, but probably not repaired.

Hoover SteamVac Dual V Carpet Cleaner just hums when I turn it on


if the motor doesn't run sounds like you either have a bad motor or your motor armature might have gotten wet and created a dead spot.if you have any contact cleaner spray a little on the armature then turn the motor by hand make sure its uuplugged first if you can turn the motor then plug it in and try to start it
