The cord needs to be jiggled where it attaches to the unit, in order for it to work. I've tried to duct-tape it in place but eventually the power goes off. What is the solution?

The connectors in the cord have been worn and do not connect as they should. I suggest getting a new cord and this should fix the problem. The radio is shorting and thats why you have to duck tape the cord - to get the cord to stay in a position where the connectors are actually connecting.

Can't turn it on. Power digital readout doesn't work.

Mine would not turn on at all, found the contact pads for the buttons was corroded. Used an eraser and cleaned them, working good now. Of course the whole thing has to come apart to get to the contact pads.

Sounds like you need a power cord - best option is to take the busted cord to The Shack (radio shack) and they have a universal power cord and they will help you match the tip so it fits in the laptop. I've done this for MP3 players and other devices and only costs about 30 bucks. Otherwise you could try hunting ebay or craigslist to find a replacement, or use some electrical tape to hold it in place that it works.

Dog chewed power cord. how do I repair

assuming this is a window air cond? It is not safe to use electrical tape, duct tape or any other kind of tape on a power cord to cover bare wiring. Many times I have cut the cord short enough to cut out the place where chewed and gone to a hardware store where I can get a new cord end that matches the wall plug and wire it in to the shorter cord. If this is not possible, you will need to either make a new cord or try to find a cord at an appliance supply house.

Our Winsdor Sensor XP12 does not show any power or lights, I did check the handle connection, it was fine. The power cord has been repaired with duct tape 3-4 x where someone has sucked up the cord, this...

Any time the cord has been damaged badly enough to require taping, the possibility or intermittent "opens" exist. This means the wires are in contact much of the time, but will losed contact periodically. Even if it worked fine seconds ago, jiggling just right may cause this. This also presents a shock hazard.
I strongly recommend replacing the cord as soon as possible. If you are unable to do this, then please take it to a shop to be done.

Dog chewed on the power cord, how do I replace it?

I would try to find a repair shop to replace it as bissell does not currently offer replacement power cords (atleast not on their website) if your power cord is only chewed in one place you could always just splice it back together and use some electrical tape. sorry I couldn't be of more help.

No power press power button blinking red battery light

If it is not taking a charge your power adapter is loose. To confirm this press on the cord where it plugs into your laptop and continuously press the power button if it powers up thats your problem. You may need to press the cord at various angles before you get it to power up push it in and pull to the left, then the right, up, down and so forth.
If this is your issue you can temparly fix it by using duct tape once you find the right position for the cord that will work for awhile but you will need to get it soldered eventually. If you know someone who knows how to solder ask them if they will do it for if not the repair will be approx. $100

The DC jack in the machine has come loose or is worn out and needs replaced. Be careful, if the soldier on the jack has broken loose it can cause an electrical arch and do sever damage to the machine.
