How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

If the room humidity level is equal to or less than 20% RH the display will show a flashing 20. The SET readout is your desired humidity setting and has a range of 25% to 65% RH and is adjusted in increments of 5%. Initially depressing the humidity button will display the current humidity setting.
To help remind you, we built a check filter indicator, or “CF” code, into many of our evaporative models. This CF code is programmed to flash at approximately 720 hours of use on your humidifier and means it is time to check the filter. This is not an indicator that anything is wrong.
The “CF” code triggers after 720 hours of use and means it`s time to CHECK your filter. If your filter is still in good shape, simply clear the code by unplugging your unit then plugging it back in. If your filter needs replacing, let your unit dry completely, then replace your filter with a new 1041 Super Wick® ®.
Relative humidity is a percentage that represents the amount of water vapor in the air at a given temperature compared to the max possible water vapor amount at that same temperature. For instance, relative humidity of 25 percent means that air is at a quarter of its possible water vapor capacity.
Relative humidity (RH) indicates the amount of water vapor (percent) that`s actually in the air compared to the maximum amount that the air could hold under the same conditions. The warmer the air, the more moisture it can hold.
Check the power source: Ensure that your humidifier is plugged in and the power source is working correctly. Check the circuit breaker to make sure the circuit is not tripped. Check the water tank: Make sure the water tank is correctly seated and filled with water.
To set your desired humidity level, press the humidity button and it will adjust in 5% increments, the range is 25% to 65%. (At 65% the humidifier will run constantly until it runs out of water).
If your Warm Mist humidifier, with or without a humidistat, is on, there is no mist, and the red reset light is illuminated: • Check if the tank is empty. Turn unit off, fill with cool water, wait 10 minutes for heating element to cool, then turn back on.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advises maintaining the relative humidity in your home between 30-50 percent. The exception is when outdoor temperatures drop below 10°F you should aim to keep your home`s relative humidity around 20-30%. Too much moisture is also bad.
While absolute humidity measures the amount of water vapor in the air, relative humidity measures the current level of moisture in the air out of how moist the air could be. So, when you see your humidity reading at 40%, it simply means that the air around you is 40% as moist as it could be.
The ideal relative humidity for health and comfort is somewhere between 30-50% humidity, according to the Mayo Clinic. This means that the air holds between 30-50% of the maximum amount of moisture it can contain.
The Health and Safety Executive recommends that relative humidity indoors should be maintained at 40-70%, while other experts recommend that the range should be 30-60%. Most people find 30-60% most comfortable and this is the level that Airthings recommends.
Low water indicator light: red

There is a float (a floating ball) inside your Philips Humidifier`s tank. When the water level becomes low, the float activates a water level switch and this will activate the red indication.

To check the operation of the humidistat and solenoid: Turn the humidistat to a very low setting or to “off.” The multimeter should register no voltage. Then, turn the humidistat to a very high setting, such as 80 percent relative humidity, or until you hear a “click” sound.
Dirty water tanks and filters in humidifiers can grow bacteria and mold. This mainly can cause problems for people with asthma and allergies. But dirty humidifiers can be trouble even for healthy people when they release mist or steam tainted with bacteria or fungi into the air.
Without regular cleaning, the parts of your humidifier that come into contact with water can develop mold and bacteria growth. In visible mist humidifiers, mold spores and bacteria can potentially be released in the mist.
Take the whole humidifier apart and rinse all the pieces

Just make sure not to soak any of the parts with electronic components. Consult your humidifier`s user manual if you have any questions or concerns. You should do this type of cleaning at least once a week.

Resetting a Honeywell Thermostat

Power off the thermostat and remove the batteries. Put the batteries in the wrong way, with negative to positive and positive to negative. Wait ten seconds and put them back in the correct way. Your thermostat will be reset to factory settings.

Examine your hygrometer to see what number it is reading and add a percentage sign to it. For example, if the hydrometer reads “70,” there is 70% moisture in the air. Digital hygrometers will often give you humidity in a percentage automatically.
The humidistat sends signals to the humidifier to stop the water supply or turns on/off the air conditioner once the set humidity level is attained. It not only helps in maintaining a comfort level in the house but also prevents outbreaks of mildew and mold in humid regions.
From your Steam Link startup screen, select Settings > Streaming > Advanced options(Y) > Reset to Defaults(Y).
Control Panel Light Explanation

On/Off – Solid Green indicates humidifier is turned On. See Using Lights to Troubleshoot section 1. 2. On/Off – Flashing Green indicates power is restored to humidifier originally in the On state.

If the humidifier is switched on, but nothing is happening, the first thing you want to do is check for power. Make sure the cord is fully inserted into the outlet. If that`s not the problem, make sure no breakers have been flipped in the fuse or breaker box of your home.
The UVC/ blue light is blinking because it is a timer that needs reset. Once the filter has been replaced with a new Guardian Technologies filter you must manually reset the timer.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Typically the top filter of which is the sponge is washable but the HEPA filter is not, it can be brushed off and vacuum off with another vacuum, but the best filtration is to replace the HEPA filter and to wash the sponge filter, if the sponge filter get to bad then replace the sponge filter as well. Or, you can check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the manufacturer’s website and or phone #. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Does the hoover runabout u427-930 have a filter? I replaced the belt and next to the light bulb was a square gray mat that looked like a filter covering a screen full of holes that looked like the motor was behind. I think it was a mat of cat hair so I took it off and threw it away; I just want to make sure that it wasn’t a filter that I need to replace.
ANSWER : From doing a search on the internet and hoovers website it looks as if this unit does not have a filter. Such as a hepa that needs to be replaced or that is washable. So i think you are safe and dont need to worry about it.

We are unable to find a replacement part that the filter attaches to in the dirt cup on our Eureka Boss Pro Model 411. This part seals the top of the dirt cup and holds the filter in place. What is the part name or model number for the replacement?
ANSWER : I just called Eureka (1-800-282-2886) and asked for the dust cover lid. It was part number 61538-1. They said they could ship it to me or I could call one of the authorized service centers nearby to see if they had one. I wasn’t in a hurry and the total to ship it to me was just under $10.

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?
ANSWER : Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com which has some very useful info on dismantling and repairing Dysons.
.Although this site doesnt actually cover the DC14 yet, the DC14 is very similar to the DC07 so as regards dissassembling the machine, and replacing the clutch, my experience is that the DC07 info will enable you to do the job.
