Replacement wand for canister
\015 Hi,I have a Eureka Oxygen vacuum model 6996 type A. The electrical cable for the lower wand has partially melted the connector that joins to the beater unit. the simplist fix and cheapest would be to replace just the cable as the wand is fine. the second solution would be to find a lower straight wand that does not have the "sensor" (a dumb gimmick) but I don't know if it would fit. The last idea is to get the overpriced wand with the sensor.Ultimately, it would be nice to know why the melting happened in the first place. It did happen when the vacuum was new, then the top connector melted and the wand was replaced under warranty. This second malfunction took years to happen. The prong that seemed to overheat looks rusty. I'm wondering if the electricity was somehow impeded there and caused a heat buildup.anyhow, love anyone's thoughts on this.\015
Whne you had your first problem with it, the cord at the bottom probably should have replaced also, if one end gets scrotched, the other end does also. One big reason why this happens is connecting and dis-connecting the power head while power is still applied to it. When you hook your skillet and it is turned on, it will arc, so does the contacts on the hose and power head. That prong is rusty, it is scrotched. Don't know if you can substitude, you might try to find a shop that has other wands and see if you can find a fit, either that or buy the one that is supposed to be with it.

I have a Filter Queen Majestic canister vacuum cleaner. At the end of the wand, a button to release the attachement not only broke, but also one eyehole on the wand where one nipple on the button falls into.

My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine.

We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa

I bought a used Miele vacuum with the SET210 wand, but the push button to release and clamp the telescoping wand was missing.

I bought a replacement push button online, but it came with no instructions. How do I install it?

The hose does not stay connected to the wand although the collar appears to be locked in place for a while. Is there a replacement part for this? Also the holder where the wand goes in has split horizontally. This appears to be one piece with the body of the unit. Is it repairable? It still holds the wand but continues to get worse.

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the pins looks like it broke off. There are only three pins remaining. I assume there should be four pins as there are four holes. Is this the problem and is it fixable? The vacuum is from 2002 so I am not sure a replacement part is even available and at what price. Thank you. Susan susan.eng@
Hi Susan, if the pin has broken off you can do one of two things, first, would be to find a local vacuum repair shop and take it there for them to look at. they may be able to look at the hose and fix it for you pretty cheaply. what ... Kenmore Progressive 20912 Bagged Canister Vacuum
