Recently purchased a Dyson V6 Cordless Vacuum, which has fallen several times now. Since the last fall when pushing down on the power button the noise is intermittent. Why is this?


Hi Julia, it's Jack at Dyson.

Just to make you aware, accidental damage resulting from a drop or a fall would not be covered under your Dyson warranty, so please take care to avoid this wherever possible.

If your Dyson V6 pulses on and off when you hold the trigger down, the motor is signalling that something is blocking airflow from passing through the machine. There could be an obstruction inside the floor tool, wand or bin inlet - but it's also worth checking the flap inside the bin inlet. The flap opens and shuts to prevent debris from escaping, but it's possible it could have jammed shut when the machine fell. Our video guide may help:

If you'd like further assistance after giving this a try, just call the Dyson Customer Helpline to speak with our experts. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

I have an Eureka Altima Model 2961AVZ vacuum that suddenly stopped picking up. I have taken it apart, checked the belt which was fine, replaced the hepa filter, and checked for clogs in all the hoses


Is the beater bar actually turning when the power is turned on? Sometimes the belt is fine, but something is jammed and keeping the beater bar from turning. What about the section behind the beater bar, but before the hose upright. I've found large pieces of paper jammed in here and then hair gets caught, ultimately blocking the whole system. Usually you have to turn it over, remove some screws and disconnect the belt and beater bar to get underneath. Just reassemble it in the reverse order to how you took it apart. Double check the hoses and run a "unwound" metal coat hanger through to unclog anything. Does the vacuum " suck" with the hose or tube up to it disconnected? If not you may have a motor that somehow got junk pulled into it. You can open this up as well and clean this out. Of course unplug it all before doing anything.

Irobot roomba won't work


This message sometimes happens when it\'s jammed or caught. I would open it up and really clean everything out to make sure the brushes are not jammed. Also pop out the ball white/black wheel at the front and remove all the hair around the axle for this.



This almost sounds like something caught in the wheels and gears. String and the like can get caught in there. The easiest thing is to find the end of the string and try to unwind it in the direction reverse to what it caught in. I tried taking the whole Roomba apart one time, it was tough, so I don\'t recommend it unless you are very mechanically minded. FYI to everyone with a Roomba, I knew someone who expected theirs to pick up random dry cat and dog poop around the house. No vacuum can do this.

Dyson will not start


If the power cells are operational and it will not start; then either the motor is dysfunctional or something is jammed in the intake module. A conduction test with instrumentation can indicate if the motor is the problem, the power cells are not fully charged, or you have a short circuit. Check Fuses.

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses...


This is not a sensor issue, I have a similar problem, sensors work fine, garage door is still fully functional, all operations, including safety sensors work properly, just the overhead lights flash. I suspect there was damage to the power board due to a power surge, going to order a replacement to see if it works, will let you know how it goes.

My overlocker is jammed with the needles in the down position - I have not used it for a while and hve just oiled and cleaned it.


Oh man.

Not sure how to get it unjammed but I know that if overlockers/sergers aren't threaded properly they can jam up like that. The last time that happened to me... broken looper.

Open up the front and start clipping threads... Gently rock the hand wheel to see if it loosens as you get thread released.

Honestly I suspect that your machine has locked up because it's been knocked out of time. If you still have problems take it in and have it serviced.

Stops in the middle of shredding and have to reverse several times before I can complete shredding


Usually paper shredders reverse because the documents being shredded might be too thick

I have a Fellowes shredder P - 35C It will work in reverse but not inwards. I have left it for considerable time but still won't start up when I insert paper.


Unplug the shredder and check the shredding blades to be sure they are not jammed with paper. If paper is stuck in the blades, it will not function to add more paper to the jam. It WILL work in reverse to remove it's jam. Also make certain the blades have not been bent by discs, credit cards, or thick amounts of paper. If all looks well, blades are straight and not clogged with paper, be sure the door (if you have this type of machine) is closed properly. If not of this helps it run, you might need to have a professional look at it OR it might be time for a new shredder.

I have a Hoover U5111-900 that, every time I attempt to use it, shoots everything it should be sucking up, back out toward my feet. I have replaced the bag, pulled out lots of animal hair and such from...


Hello,

Although I could not locate info on a U5111900, the link below shows a similiar upright and things to check for clogs. See page 12 and refer to the pages noted.

http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/U5511900.pdf

You will probably need to remove and check under the bottom plate. (Page 8 and 9) You will need to remove several screws though. There is an opening behind the beater bar.

There are probably filters that may be packed and need replaced.

I hope this helps. If not simply reject this solution and another Expert will attempt to help you. Thanks for using Fixya.
