Our Samsonite Pixel Cube suitcase combination lock won’t unlock! We are definitely putting the correct combination into it but the lock isn’t moving and the suitcase is full of our belongings! We’ve used it on numerous occasions before and never had a problem with it so can’t understand why it has suddenly jammed!
ANSWER : Try 001, then 002, then 003 and so on. It may take you half an hour but worth the try. Otherwise, if you don’t want to break it open, you really have to call Samsonite Customer Service Center at 1-800-765-BAGS.

I have a raynor flight star garage opener. Had a lighting strike 4 days ago. All power is good. The opener even has a little green light on the switch that is attached to it. However the opener is not responding. Is there a way to reset on the motor by taking off the housing? I don’t see any reset button on the out side of the housing.thnx

ANSWER : You could always try unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. If that doesn’t work the logic board is probably fried and unfortunately there is no replacement available for it any longer. You would need to buy a new opener. I’d recommend Liftmaster.

I have a Dyson Animal upright (purple). I took it apart to clean the cyclone chambers. When re-assembling the bottom closed before the opening rod was inserted. I can’t get the opening rod installed with the bottom opening closed. How do I open it? Thanks.
ANSWER : I looked in our DC07. I would try removing the top again and getting a long dowel or the opening rod, insert it down into the unit and PUSH. The opening rod opens the latch by pushing it, not pulling it. Here are some pictures of the latch. Top pic is in the unlock position. Bottom is the normal position.

I hope this helps.

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 just as it fully closes and then the lights start to blink again. I checked for obstructions and tried to reset the limits of travel per the manual, it still does the same thing. Any ideas on what to try next?
ANSWER : 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.

Dirt cup lock on windtunnel vacuum won’t lock
ANSWER : It may have to be taken off and then re-installed, but if it is only 1 and 1/2 old, then it is under warranty. There is a full year on Hoover vacuums. Just take proof of purchase with you and take it to a warranty repair shop. You should have their 1-800 to call and find the closest shop. Warranties are void if you temper with it.

My garage door opener will start to close then stop and go back to the open position. If I put pressure on the door as it is closing sometimes it will close all the way and sometimes it will return to the open position. Can you help me. Thanks
ANSWER : Sounds like the pressure sensor is being tripped – this is a safety feature on most makes in the last 10 years.

Find the make/model of your device and it probably has some knobs on the main unit to adjust.

For example, on the Chamberlain Power Drive 3/4 HP Chain Drive Garage Access System model PD752D:

My Dyson DC14 Animal doesn’t have the suction it used to. The piece in the back on the bottom – a flap it appears – stays open now, causing the machine to make a louder noise than usual. At first, if I put my hand on the flap opening it would close, allowing for normal suction. Now, it stays “open” permanently”, causing the loss of suction.
ANSWER : Hi its Darran at Dyson.
