Hard to push


There may be a dial or something to set your unit to "floor" or low, and "High", all for the type of carpet or flooring you are vacuuming... change the setting to the middle or "floor"/ low.

On the other hand, here is a silly experience we may be sharing- sometime these units have wheels set so that, when the unit is "parked" or upright, wheels come down in the back, thus pushing the front down. You can turn it on, but the wheels won't go back into the unit until you move the handle from the upright position... My ex spent 15 minutes trying to get the vacuum to be normal- and all she had to do was just get the handle back at 2 or 4 o'clock position, and it worked fine...
if that's what you did- you aren't the only one! :-)

Good luck.

Kemore canister not working no suction what do I check first


First check and wash any auxilary filter in between bag and hose, next check engine fan filter if any is mounted in front of fan, next run a stiff wire down the whole flex hose to dislodge matter inside. If all this fails it may have a seperated fan impeller - check that it is spinning when the motor runs. Some vacuumes are worth rebuilding, you may be able to get a motor/fan unit for about $80 and install it with two marletts like I did. I got two motors one at 600 Watts which is still perfect and a huge LAMB 1000 Watt unit which is the kind that can bounce beachballs off the walls!

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. The cleaner's brush control system is designed to make a ratcheting sound to alert you if the brushbar is jammed. Although you've already cleaned the brushbar, it's a good idea to follow the steps shown in our online support guide to make sure you haven't missed any obstructions in the cleaner head:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=650&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US

This should allow you to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you've checked the brushbar and cleaner head are clear of threads, hair, or other obstructions, but the cleaner still seems to be making the ratcheting noise, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you to identify the cause of the issue, and will be able to recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Jack

Need to replace a belt on Hoover Model 5035-930 belt 38528-027 Also reattach bottom lift wheel (has clip that came out)


There are four retaining screws that hold the brush guard in place. Remove those screws and the guard comes right off the unit. After removing you will see the drive belt.Once you have taken off the old belt just give the new belt enough slack to get it onto the axle ( you'll probably need a flat head screw driver. However it shouldn't be that tight of a fit. Simle fix.
As for the height adjuster that is a common problem with those model vacuums. They just seem so break. I have an older unit myself, the piece you are referring to will continue to come apart or break no matter how many times its fixed.

I have a Hoover Floormate, Spinscrub 500, I just wanted to know if tis model can also clean carpets.


SORRY , IT'S NOT DESIGNED OR HAS THE ABILITY TO DO ANYTHING OTHER THEN MINOR SPOT CLEANING. TO DO A CARPET , YOU'LL NEED A FULL SIZED UNIT. THE PROBLEM IS THAT NO MATTER WHAT BRAND YOU BUY YOU'LL HAVE PROBLEMS IN LESS THEN 3 MONTHS AS THEY ARE ALL MADE IN CHINA NOW AND THE QUALITY IS TERRIBLE. GOOD LUCK AND WHATEVER YOU DO , DON'T BUY IT FROM KOHL'S , THEY HAVE THE WORST.

I'm just looking for a owners manual for a Whirlpool Dehumidifier model AD50USL3 to see if there is anyway to connect a hose to run to a drain instead of having to empty the water collection chamber.


If your looking at the front panel of the unit look on the left side of the bucket there is a cover for the optional hose attachment.

Electrolux Central Vacuum won't turn off


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!

Irobot Roomba will not turn off


I think both of you who responded are tools.

The issue is on the main board. What JBugs is saying is the brushes continue to run even if the unit is manually turned off.

There is no fix other than to replace the main board. There is a circuit which drives the brushes. If the circuit electronically gets stuck in a closed position, then the brushes will run until out of power.

There is a way to install a switch in the brush circuits but then you must manually turn the brushes on each time you want to clean.

Best bet is to call iRobot, complain and buy one of the out of warranty replacements for $99. This replacement will allow you to schedule the unit to wake up and will perform exactly like the Scheduler.
