What is the estimated time before it overheats?


A vacuum cleaner running correctly should not overheat at all. The motor is designed with a fan large enough to keep it cool under all normal operating conditions.

Getting an H97 error code on a Panasonic micro wave, I believe I am having an inverter problem


Troubleshooting of Inverter Circuit (U) and Magnetron
This oven is programmed with a self diagnostics failure code system which will help for troubleshooting, H97, H98 and H99 are the provided failure magnetron and inverter circuit problem areas. This section explains failure codes of H97, H98 and H99. H97, H98 and H99 appears in display window a short time after start key is pressed and there is no microwave oscillation.

NOTE: DO NOT try to REPAIR this Inverter Power Supply (U) and also DO NOT RE-ADJUST PRESET VOLUME on the board. It is very dangerous to repair or adjust without sufficient test equipment because this circuit handles very high voltage and very large current. Off alignment or inverter board operation is dangerous. Operating a misaligned inverter circuit is dangerous due to the very high voltage and current that is produced by this board. Defective boards must be replaced with a new one.
- Check magnetron filament for open or short to casing before proceeding to determine a good magnetron.

Alternative way to troubleshoot oven with AC Ampere meter used. H97, H98 and H99 appears in display window a short time alter start key is pressed and no microwave oscillation with AC Ampere meter used for troubleshooting.

Hi, I have Microtek 810 Inverter, it is charging properly, problem starts when mains goes off and inverter is in Battery mode, then output of inverter shows no voltage, even i conected multimeter to...


Good day!

You have to do is:
Check the battery if it is leak.Use a voltmeter to test the output voltage of the battery.If your battery had a low supply voltage even you charge it for 3 hours and above.Replace the battery immediately.


Thank you and good luck.

Motor on Eureka vaccum is suddenly very loud. I've changed all the filters and the belt.


The likeliest causes would be a large item sucked up and into the fan, causing a loud rattling noise, or a piece of the fan broke, resulting in the same noise. This means replacing the fan assembly.
The armature brushes could also be worn down to the point of causing the brush holders to contact the armature, which will, and probably has, ruin the motor. A replacement of the motor is necessary.
Cost of repair/replacement would probably be higher than the vacuum is worth.

No suction on Roomba 560


Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module. If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.

Hope you changed the bearing while you were where here.

Give it a spin by hand and make sure there is no grinding.

Hope this is right, doing it from memory, have a picture at work.

sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.
I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz.
usually when a vac is brought to europe you must change motor.
