A Smoking Vacuum

So I'm all gung-ho about cleaning today...I get the first two levels of the house vacuumed and it smells funny...so I unplug it and take a look, and lo and behold, the vacuum is smoking!

And this was a gift from my parents, a very generous $700 gift.

A $700 gift shouldn't smoke (unless it's a car, I guess).

Sheesh.

Doesn't it make you want to pull your hair out? For $700 you should be able to vacuum 24/7 for years and years with no smoke. So says I :)

YES! And we're so remote there's no where to take it for the 21 year warranty to apply. I have to mail the stupid thing to Phoenix. I haven't wanted to yet because I NEED some kind of vacuum. I guess tomorrow I'll head down to the hardware store and beg them for a big enough box.

My goodness that will cost a fortune to mail (at least a $700 vacuum sounds like it would be big!)

Hello Juloyes ! I've been lurking on your blog for about a week and have really enjoyed it. My name is SueAnne and I live in Houston, TX. I have four children who I homeschool. Our oldest daughter graduated high school about 1 1/2 years ago ( homeschool ) and is in the US Coast Guard, married, and serving at Camp LeJeune,NC.
I was just wondering if you could call the manufacturer of the vacuum and ask if you could get it fixed locally and they could somehow reimburse you for the bill ? Also, I'm wondering if you could just pay out of pocket to fix the vacuum if it's not too expensive. Postage is so expensive now days that I'm wondering if you could get it fixed ( and not spend as much time without a vacuume ) for about as much money as you'd spend in postage ?

I've already checked into having someone else fix it, but then I void the warranty. The day has gotten away from me so I guess I'll mail it tomorrow!
