Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hi there I have a Shop.Vac QS800 57519-63 its about 6 years old. I don't have manual for it & want to know how I can use it in the wet mode Thanks for your help. Jasper


Answers :

To use a shop vac to **** up water you just need to remove the filter element inside. open it up just as if you were going to empty out the dirt and on the top center you will see a filter. unscrew the retaining nut on the bottom and remove filter. After unit is dry and you are done using it in the wet mode replace the filter and put the retaining nut back on.

Kirby Sentria I bought my kirby sentria just before we were to move house and although I have the instructions somewhere, they will be boxed up and I so want to clean the carpets before I move. Problem is that I don't know whether the belt should be on or off when using the big silver front with the Kirby insignia on it. I know that the green light should come on when it is working properly and it does not, so I am doing something wrong. I can attach the attachments no problem but I want to use

I have a Bissel Pro Heat Plus and I used it once, one year ago. I may be using it wrong, as my carpets were wet and there was no return (dirty water).

It has only one tank that serves two purposes. It holds the clean water and collects the dirty water, so you only have to empty/fill one tank.

I recently took out a stand mixer that is probably over 50 years old. It belonged to my mother and I wanted to use it. It probably hasn't been used in at least 10 years. With some effort, I removed one of the beaters but cannot remove the other one nor can I even budge it. I have used WD-40 but it's not helping. It's a Westinghouse product. Any ideas? Thanks.


If you used WD40, you should have the unit inverted so the WD40 runs down into the beater socket.Use a small piece of wood and place it against the bottom of the beater and tap lightly with a hammer while pressing the beater release button/lever, jus ... Vacuums

HA-871? I'm not sure if anyone can help with this, but I've got a **** Smith brand HA-871 alarm system which I haven't used in years. When trying to get it working, not only have I forgotten the code but I can't remember how to enter it (as in, 4 digits and a #, or just the 4 digits, or something else...?). As I am able to get into the alarm box with the key, does anyone know how to reset it and enter the code? I can't find the manual either. Thanks to anyone able to help with this!

Oreck Belts Why do they smell badly and almost always break when being used for an extended period? I see Mr. Oreck in print, television and internet ads -- and he certainly carries himself as a credible person; a man you want to believe....But reading his biblliography -- he started his career (in this area as I know it) as a "Vacuum Cleaner Salesperson" for Whirlpool. Many vacuums brands - particularly those that are noit sold directly by retailers (Oreck, Kirby and others) use the commission-

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci


Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
