How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

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

Your steam vents might be clogged. You need to descale the iron. You can either buy descaler solutions or make your own.
It is likely if you have hard water that your iron is blocked with limescale. Try emptying and refilling with a product like Stock Number: ES1562116 to try and clear any limescale build up.
If the water level in the water tank is below the minimum or is empty, your appliance will not generate steam. Ensure that there is water in the tank or that the water is above the MIN level icon. After this, your iron should work again.
A quick trick to conquer a blockage that baffles you. If your iron isn`t steaming properly, turn to the household cure-all: white vinegar. Pour one part vinegar and two parts water into the reservoir. Turn the iron on, and when it`s hot, hold it soleplate-side down.
Without regular descaling, you will find that scale is pushed out of your steam generator iron in the form of white/brown stains and that the steam output is compromised. Be sure to descale as part of your ironing routine to maximize the performance of your steam generator iron.
Steam generator irons compared to traditional steam irons are known to be efficient and effective in clearing piles of ironing and producing excellent results without much effort. Cutting your ironing time by half for the same laundry pile.
Check the following points: The tank is empty or almost empty: add more water. The selected temperature is too low and does not allow steam to be produced: set the thermostat to the steam zone (between 2 dots and MAX). If your iron has a Dry/Steam control: set it to the Steam position.
The black screen issue on Steam can be fixed by updating the app, and graphics drive, clearing the browser cache, re-configuring Steam settings, deleting the Steam cache, and applying other fices. However, if none of the fixes work, you will finally have to reinstall Steam.
Yes, when the iron gets too hot the thermal fuse will blow to protect the heating element. They can be replaced with the same value.
Mix a half-cup of distilled white vinegar and half-cup of distilled water and pour it into the iron. Inspect the steam vents for white residue or other buildup and use a toothpick or toothbrush dipped in vinegar to clean them out. Plug in the iron, set it for steam, and wait for about five minutes.
Reheat temperature – Raising the average temperature of heat added will increase the power cycle. While reheating the steam after it has partially expanded through the turbine not only increases the average temperature of heat added, but also provides drier steam in the turbine`s last stages.
Pressure is measured in Bar with around 6.5bar being the current maximum. Anything over 5 bar should be plenty for every day ironing.
Steam irons can be a bit heavier than dry irons. The flip-side to a heavy iron is that you don`t need to put much pressure while ironing.
Using distilled water can help prevent corrosion and mineral build up, because it doesn`t actually contain any minerals! For this reason, it`s the preferred option to choose when you`re filling up your steam cleaner.
Keep the steam mop moving constantly as you wash, and don`t allow it to idle on any given spot. Change the pad as it grows dirty, as you don`t want to simply spread dirt around the floor. For thorough cleaning, you might want to make multiple light passes over the entire floor.
Place a large ceramic cup under the machine, find the 8oz and 10oz buttons, and press them both simultaneously. Let the machine run until the cup is filled, and then dispose of the water. If the descale light is still on, hold down the 8oz and 10oz buttons simultaneously for five seconds, and the light will go off.
Calcium and scale are non-toxic, but left unattended, they can hinder your brewers performance. *To turn off the descale indicator light once you have completed descaling your brewer, press and hold down the 8oz & 10oz buttons together for 3 seconds.
Yes, it must be descaled every 7 to 10 uses. To do this, simply fill the water tank with 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water. Leave to act cold for 1 night. Rinse the inside of the water tank several times with warm water.
If the iron is leaving brown water spots on clothes when using steam, that means it`s time to clean the reservoir. Empty the reservoir completely and refill with 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar and 3/4 cup distilled water.
Fill the Tank With Vinegar: Fill the water tank with distilled white vinegar or cleaning vinegar. Allow the vinegar to sit in the tank for at least 30 minutes (up to two hours is best) to help break apart the limescale and mineral deposits.
Descale your machine – it`s no secret that water contains minerals, which can be left behind (in the form of limescale) in your steam cleaner`s boiler tank and hinder the performance of the appliance.
Fuse of 5 A has to be used for operating an electric iron of 1 kW power at 220 V line.
Plugs for appliances rated between about 700 watts and 3000 watts (the maximum rating of a wall socket) should be fitted with a 13-amp fuse (coloured brown). For example: 13A Fuse – Washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, iron.
Some appliances, such as lamps, televisions, computers, fridges and freezers generally require a 3 amp fuse. However washing machines, dishwashers, microwaves, kettles, toasters and irons usually require 13 amp fuses.

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

I had used Dyson DC08 to **** out a wet car carpet. A few days later when using the V/C, there was a burning smell. Subsequently I washed the flexible hose, changed the pre-filter and post filter , but I wrongly put the pre-filter in the spot for the post filter. When the V/C was next used, there was again a burning smell and sparks. The filters were switched, but the V/C would not re-start.
What shall I do?

No steam My SV1000 steam cleaner will not make steam. It heats up, but I think the small portholes where the steam comes out are clogged up. Are parts available to change the steam line?
ANSWER : I used the straw to prime the lines and 50/50 mix of vinager and water and it worked perfectly. I then mixed the water container with the same mix and ran it through the system. All works fine now.

I have a Z345 Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner, from the 1970s probably, but not used much. I have lost the guide. I forgot to change the bag before it was full. Smoke started to come out – smelling of burnt paper, not rubber. So switched off. It did not blow the fuse, and may be OK. I wish to inspect it. How do I open it up?

Alos I have an air filter and a motor filter for it. I have often changed the air filter on the top. How do I get at the motor filter, if there is one?

.Hello,
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.

While using my mop yesterday, it stopped letting steam come out. Tonight I plugged it up again and you could hear it trying to steam. I push the button in to release the square frame and it pushed out a burst of steam and pushed the head off. Put it back together and it still will not let steam out. No matter how much water is in it.
