Miele CatAndDog700 Bagged Canister Vacuum\015 Yesterday while vacuuming, my Miele Cat and Dog 700 just stopped working and the warning light came on. After looking at my user manual, I thought maybe it had just overheated (although never happened before in 6 years), so I waited a while to let it cool down. 18 hours later, it still won’t start – doesn’t make a sound at all when pressing start button, but light comes on.....I suspect problem could have been caused by me trying to be economical with bags, as I often empty the Miele bag to prolong usage (I find bag full indicator comes on very quickly, so I empty bag out, however dust collects in bag lining)...I had a problem with low suction power previously when I used substitute paper bags, but once I switched back to Miele, and replaced/cleaned filters, problem was resolved. There didn’t seem to be a decrease in power this time, machine simply stopped...Any advice? Thanks in advance.\015

To do this, turn on the vacuum and press the reset button. The service indicator light will turn off and then be reset to its original position. This will only work if the indicator light has already come on, not if the reset button has been pushed between filter changes.
A temperature limiter protects all Miele stick vacuum cleaners from overheating. Should the air passage become blocked – for instance by vacuuming up bulky particles – the motor will automatically shut off for safety`s sake.
Looking to the future, we promise to maintain the dependability and durability of our appliances. For full information on Miele`s 20 year pledge, read more.
If your vacuum was working fine and then suddenly shut off, it may have overheated. Most vacuums are equipped with a thermal protector safety switch that won`t allow the motor to run when it becomes overheated. You will need to wait for 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on your machine, to try again.

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?
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.
press the clean button – got a green light
iRobot runs for a couple of seconds and stops, then starts, then stops. After two or three times I now have a red light on for the Status.
All of the wheels seem to be clean. I used compressed air to clean the underside. But still have the start stop problem.
I have a Sony XDRS100CD with DAB radio. The DAB radio has stopped working although I can still use the CD and get FM radio. The unit has a readout on the front that usually shows the time and this stopped working too, presumably because it got the time via the DAB radio.
The unit works from mains and batteries although I have only ever used it on mains.
.you will need to replace the ballast as it will let current thru for some bulbs but not enough to light them all up.
.also if you use old bulbs that are alomst blown and new ones it puts ware on the ballast and it wont last as long.
.if you do not know how to change the ballast you should get an electrician in to do it for you. he could also look for other problems and better detect the issue you are having.
.however i find that replacing the ballast is usulally the easiest fix.
