Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I need to reset the lock on the samsonite 375 flite comfort and cant seem to do it. It has a red button at the back of the dials with 'on' 'off'. I've pulled it forward and followed instructions to reset it but still it won't reset. I'm not sure if that button has anything to do with resetting it actually???

you need to use something small to push the red pin right in, make sure there is nothing blocked in the roller and this should reset the motor. The roller needs to be switched on next to the power button is well.

SOURCE: The roller brush won't work

More than likely the belt that drives the brush is broken. I have had this happen many times. The bottom cover should be held on by 3 or 4 screws. Remove the screws, check and replace the belt is necessary.

SOURCE: I removed the power head and when I connected it back, it won't work. Is there a reset button?

No, you just need to clean the connections - or make certain you have a good connection.

Can't get the Dyson 24 to switch from flat floor to carpet mode. What should I do?


Hi Lee, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24's cleaner head is engineered to adjust automatically when you move from one floor surface to another - there are no fiddly height adjustment dials or levers to adjust. When cleaning hard floors or delicate rugs, you can also use the silver brush control switch (next to the red on/off switch) to turn off the brush bar:

amp-39-t-get-dyson-24-switch-from-flat-m43difmpidfjgfho0k5c5fgh-1-0.jpg

If the brush bar doesn't seem to rotate at all, you may need to reset your machine as shown in the video below. You may find it helps to press the red reset button with something like the eraser-end of a pencil. You should hear and feel a click as it engages:


If you find you still need further help after giving this a try, you're welcome to contact our experts directly for some troubleshooting advice. If a repair or replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under your Dyson warranty. Just give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dc17 won't turn on


there is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor.

I have an electrolux discovery II vacuum cleaner and the floor function works, but when I try to switch over to carpet mode, it doesn't seem to engage.


There is a red reset button on the back of the machine. When it trips, the brush won't engage. Press the reset button and then try your machine again.

I cant use the hose


There will be a dial on top of the tank that you can rotate 180 degrees which will switch the unit from vacuum to hose.

To switch it back to vacuum, rotate the dial back 180 degrees.

Tornado wide area commercial vacuum


Hi There,

Your Tornado Wide Area vacuum cleaner is actually manufacturered by Powr-Flite. The two companies are sister companies, and owned by the same parent company Tacony.

It sounds like to me that your belt may have broken, or fallen off of the motor shaft. This may explain why the roller brush is not spinning. There is also a reset switch on the machine, on the top (item # 41 in diagram below), you should check the reset switch first. Try pushing down on this switch to see if this will restart your brushes.

If it doesn't, here are instructions on how to open up the belt, and inspect it or replace it if it's broken:

If you need to purchase a new belt, you may contact Powr-Flite at 1-800-880-2913, and request them to send you part number 19802.

Here's links to the instruction manual, and parts diagram for your Tornado, which is the same exact machine as the Powr-Flite model PF2030:
