Same as many others on this web site. There must be some manufacturer flaw with the switch from whomever Dyson bought their on/off switches. There are problems on various models and this seems to be a rampant problem. This model is a DC33. Who do I contact in this area? Zip code 93292 JerryJA: I'll do all I can to help.

Tyler, this is a weird one. I just want your opinion. Was called over to simply reattach a dryer exhaust hose. I get there and the dryer was where it should have been with the 240 VAC outlet behind it, but the hose was routed to the right through the bottom of a cabinet. Where it went to the cabinet, I notice that it connected inside (basically taped with aluminum tape) to the front of this elbow. The elbow was further jury rig taped to the hole in the wall at the back of the cabinet. To make a long story short, I can't find an exhaust connector or pipe where the elbow connected in the wall. I feel space there, but just space between the walls, and a solid bottom beneath where the elbow bent. I felt all around and used a light and extended mirror and see no connector. There is a vent on the outside, but I don't know if this was for looks. I thought these things were to code. Is is possible that some subcontractors just ran this deal down into the wall? I feel some PVC pipe, etc, but no connector. (I knew it was a bad sign when I saw the elbow taped to the hole at the back of the cabinet.) What would you do? I suppose I could try to find some kind of compressed smoke that you could spray in there, blow it in with the back exhaust of a vacuum cleaner and see if it comes out the vent outside? Or should I just charge them an analysis fee and tell them they need to talk to a contractor? I can't hook up what is apparently not there. Have you ever run into something like this before?

I have a GE Profile refrigerator which over time developed first intermittent and infrequent, but now continuously a high pitched noise, a little bit like a vacuum cleaner heard from a distance. I have already considered ditching the refrigerator, but maybe there is a solution.

Ihave a kenmore vacuum cleaner model number116.35922500. The intelliclean sensor always seems to stay on green even though I know the carpet I am vacuuming is dirty. It acts right when you first start vacuuming but then turns to solid green and stays that way keeping the vacuum cleaner always on low power which means the dirt doesn't get vacuumed up.Any ideas!
