How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

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

Starting at the top of the tree, intertwine the lights on top of and under branches. Work your way down and around the tree, hanging lights in the back as well. When you reach the bottom, hide any extra lights behind the tree.
If your outdoor security light won`t turn off, it`s most likely because of one of these problems: The sensitivity settings are too high. The duration settings are too high. It`s stuck in auto mode.
Sensor light staying on

Look around your garden for anything new that may be causing this and move the object. If this doesn`t solve the issue, turn the system off via the circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Once turned back on, the system should reset and the light should go off.

A light switch timer is an electronic mechanism that controls lighting within a domestic or commercial environment. They are often installed to save energy and can be controlled either manually or electronically via a digital display.
CLEAN CONNECTORS IF NEEDED. DISCONNECT POWER FOR 30 SECONDS AND REAPPLY, SOMETIMES A POWER SURGE CAN LOCK UP THE ELECTRONICS AND THIS WILL RESET IT. IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER TIMER WITH AN INTERNAL BACK UP BATTERY IN IT THE BATTERY COULD BE WEAK OR DEAD.
When lights are attached in series, the electricity passes from the power source to the first light, and then from light to light until it returns to the power source. In this setup, when a filament within any one bulb blows out, it creates an open circuit in the wiring.
Outlet timers are a trusted way to automate your Christmas lights. They`re also the easiest to set up and require the least amount of tech-savviness. All you have to do is plug them into an outlet and plug your strand of lights into the timer.
The string of light is designed to daisy chain. The end of one can plug into the start of the next one. The lights are in series between the neutral at one end and the hot at the other end. Thus three wires – hot, neutral, and the series lights.
Each unit also comes with an optional timer function. Simply turn the timer on when you want the lights to come on. Once the timer is set the lights will come on at the same time every day and stay on for 6 hours lasting up to 2 weeks on a good set of batteries.
Buy a 1-foot-wide (30-centimeter) roll of plastic. Roll out a length of plastic sheet equal to that of the strand lights and cut the plastic sheet from the roll. Place the strand on top of the plastic sheet and roll the plastic sheet and strand lights together.

Hooked everything up per directions. I plugged it in to the closest electrical outlet and nothing happened. The lights did not light up, the connected wall control and sensors leds do not light up. It appears the unit doesn’t have power. The electrical outlet socket is fine as everything else I plug into it works fine. I have tried every other electrical outlet available. The unit won’t power on from any outlet, and all of those outlets run other things, like power tools an refrigerators
ANSWER : Dear Davehibshman,

Firstly; dismantle the plug and replace the fuse with the same rating as the one you have just taken out. Replace the plug cover, put the plug into the socket and try again. If this doesnt work, there may be a problem with the internal fuse (if one is fitted). Two choices here, either refer this unit to a qualified service personnel/ the place where you got it from, or do the job yourself (which will save you a whole bunch of cash). In your circumstances, I would take it back to the place you got it and ask them to put the fault right, or replace the unit completely; if it is past its warranty or guarantee time, then get back to me with a make and model number of the unit, and I will give you step-by-step instructions on how to solve this.

Yours sincerely

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh’t start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat
ANSWER : It was overheated that is why it worked downstairs after cooling off.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc…. So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I
ANSWER : You have an airflow problem. You may still have a blocked intake or tube, also check the filter. The air is supposed to go in the bottom (of course) and I’m sure you k**w where it goes out. You probably can **te a reduction in exhaust. If this is a bagless make sure everything is fitting together properly. Mis-aligned components on a bagless can mean little or ** airflow. If this is **t a bagless, try changing the bag whether it is full or **t.

I have a Roomba 560 (it’s still in warranty !!) and, after my summer vacation, it has a problem.
When I’m charging Roomba, the orange light blinks (and this is normal!) but this orange blinking continues forever…. the light doesn’t change to green.
If I detach Roomba from the charger, the light become green and it works normally until the light changes to red and I have to charge it again.

WHY, DURING THE CHARGING PHASE, THE LIGHT DOESN’T CHANGE FROM ORANGE-BLINKING TO GREEN?

HAVE I

ANSWER : The problem is not with the charger itself but it is with the battery inside the Roomba. It sunds like one or more of the cells has gone bad so its not holding the same charge as it did. I would recomend sending it in while the warranty is still valid so they will replace it. Your charger and the Roomba itself should be fine.

A few tips to keep the battery working longer:
Only charge the battery when it is drained all the way to zero. It will help keep the battery active.

Only charge the battery until it is full and then disconect it from the power source. It will keep it active longer plus it will help keep your electric bill down.

I have a Casa Blanca Intelitouch ceiling fan.
Panama5
12004T model no.??
serial no.: AU16550
A casa blanca tri-switch on the wall: lights-fan-power

When I turn it on, the lights and fan work fine.
After a period of time, the lights go off by themselves.
I don’t remember the fan ever going off by itself, only the lights.

ANSWER : The light are going off only because after a period of time the circuit lets off the trigger on the switching thyristor. So the fault is within the control box of the unit which must be taken out to confirm.
.Now attempt to do the job only if your are competent with high voltage circuits as the circuit must be checked before and after the lights switch off.
.It is also possible that the switching device the thyristor may be on dry soldering joint. So with the mains power off( or the power disconnected to the unit) have yourself insulated , use a soldering iron to touch up all the joints.
.Failure of capacitors in the trigger circuit is also possible to have this delay off.
.Trace the trigger voltage cut off at this point to come to the solution.( use a multimeter)

I just bought a Tfal Ultimate Autoclean iron FV 9450.
I am reading through the manual and trying to figure out all the parts and functions.

I cannot figure out how to remove the anti calc valve.
I see it is part # 12 on the drawing but that piece on my iron (the bit with the little circles on it where it says, ” anti calc plus’) seems to be a flat piece of integrated plastic with no give or slide to it. .I cannot see how I’d possibly remove it. What do you do – push up? push down? The i

ANSWER : Anti-calc valve wings (grip) located at #3 of the 1-15 labeled description diagram that is part of the instruction manual. The wings are on either side of the dry/steam control #4. Lift up on the wings (grips) and the dry/steam control will accompany it. The anti-calc valve is under this control. It’s easy once you realize where the silly thing is actually located.

When i turn on the vacuum it shuts right off. the speckled bag light is on (2 lights under the plug light)
ANSWER : Im going to guess you have an Electrolux Tank. the control valve inside probably went bad. normally i just disconnect it. Do no try to take it apart if you don’t know what your doing. take it to a vacuum shop.

GE on/off timer for a bathroom fan – switch has four wires
Green – ground
White – neutral
Black – power
Blue – lead

My fan has two – white neutral and black lead

I have tried every configuration and cannot get the fan to work. Any suggestions?

ANSWER : I would guess that the black wire on the timer is the power in and blue is the power out to the fan (hook it to the black wire going to the fan) The other colors are right.
