Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a littermaid elite automatic litter disposal system. It stopped cycling and both lights are flashing. Nothing is stuck, it just made several passes at some point overnight without successfully getting to the receptacle due to heavy litter. The box was clear and moving before we went to bed. This morning the lights were flashing. I unplugged, emptied, etc and it will not work. what now? It does not have the reset button at the receptacle button that the old models did. Is there one? help

If the light came on when you plugged it in, then you have power to the unit. You can take a coin and short across the two pins where the small, low voltage wires connect to the unit. Just remove the two wires, they should just pull off, and touch the two pins together with the coin. The unit should come on. If it doesn't, and the light is on, you may have a bad motor or a bad relay on the board inside the unit. Another thing to check is the filter. It has to be installed properly or the unit will not run. The top of the filter depresses a switch so that the unit cannot be operated without a filter in place. Good Luck!

SOURCE: vaccum cleaner not picking up (116.36933/Aspiradora)

Joan,

I had a similar problem with my upright and just resolved it today. Mine was also picking up with the beater bar, but not as good as it should and it had very little suction at the hose.

I did everything it said to do in my owners manual...
I looked into every entry to the dirt cup.
I checked for blockages into the bottom of the vacuum.
I cleaned the HEPA and regular filters and dirt cup - still no success.
I made sure the belt was working properly.

I finally sat and looked at how things should get into the clear dirt cup (bagless model).

I finally realized it had to be a blockage in the hose.

I completely detached the hose from the vacuum - this took some muscle.
Took the hose outside and used my high pressure nozzle on my garden hose to spray out the hose. It took a few seconds before a pretty large & stiff piece of paper (2"x2") and much more very dirty stuff finally blew out...
No wonder the vacuum had no suction!!!

The paper that was blocking the hose reminds me of a piece found under a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup! YIKES, it was probably candy causing yet more problems besides the extra pounds!!!

Hope this helps - I'm not an expert, just a frustrated cleaning fanatic who hates it when mechanical things don't work right!

Good LUCK!

SOURCE: vacuum working perfectly and everything stopped.

sounds like a bad relay in the tank just a simple repair but should be done by a vacuum tech or electrician. Could be a motor is nothing is starting at all, but not as likely.

Dyson v6: It looks like it stopped charging.


If it's only 2 weeks old, you could have a defective either charging system or just a bad battery. Most places offer free replacement within 30 days of purchase. I would take it back to your place of original purchase. I hope that helps!

What does a flashing light on the dc28 vaccuum mean


There are a few things a flashing light could mean. One is that the beater bar has something stuck on it. Or, it could be that the bag or canister is full. Then again, maybe something is stuck in one of the intakes. Be careful when checking the beater bars. Unplug the vacuum before touching them, you wouldn't want your hands getting injured or fingers broken:( Clear anything that is wrapped around the beater bars, hair, string, etc., and then check the hoses to make sure nothing is stuck in them. If you have suction, the interior is clear. If not, then check in there to make sure nothing is clogging it. Good luck and be careful:)

hey mike im an expert do the following >>
Check the side wheels for obstructions.
First Try:
• With the robot on its back, push the wheels up and down several times to make sure nothing is stuck. Turn the wheels by hand to see if they both have the same amount of resistance.
• Clean the wheel assemblies

if this doesn't help please replace the wheel assembly

When i try to use it on manual the green light will flash then turn off, but works on automatic


The hose button will only work if the hose is unplugged from the side. Sounds like it thinks the hose is still in it. There is a small magnet in the end of the hose. Over time they rust and come apart. Bits may be stuck to sensor where hose clicks in on the side.

Plug/wire is stuck partially out (4-5 inches)pressing on rewind button nothing happens....just stuck!


This usually means the cord got twisted over itself. Pull it completely out and give slight resistance on cord and rewind it again.

I have a Eureka Boss Power Plus and the beater bar is rolling, the belt is turning, but after vacuuming up around the litter box (not a lot of litter), when I turn the vacuum off, the litter, or even...


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar. This is normal and you shouldn't be alarmed. There is nothing wrong with your vacuum. :-)

NO SUCTION COMING FROM BOTTOM OF VACUUM


even though the belt isnt broken you should replace it also make sure the height is raised up on the nozzle. try dropping a marble through the hose to double check there is nothing stuck ( the attachment hose and the small hose that runs to the floor )
