Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I am trying to install a train air horn. i bought a viair compressor for it. the horns themselves have a 12 volt hookup going to what i believe is acting like a solenoid. when charged, you complete the circuit and walah, the horn blasts. the problem im having is when the compressor is building pressure, the air horn is automatically putting out a dull sound, getting louder as the pressure gets more and more. it sounds like its out of one horn however. it is doing that without the 12 v hookup. is


Answers :

Hi! just a tip regarding the sound that comes up when building pressure. Is there a gasket or rubber seal on the horn? You may need to replace this for it may be worn. The air may be coming out of the worn seals resulting to sound even when not triggered. Hope this helps and have a good one!
Hello! The electrically controlled solenoid is malfunctioning... As air pressure builds, it is leaking through to one of the horns...Tank outlet connects to the solenoid valve inlet...Solenoid outlets connect to horns...And should remain closed as pressure builds...

Recommend replacing solenoid valve...

I just bought the LG200R vacuum. It is working wonderfully but i have only had it a week. I have already had to clean the agitator but this is due to my extremely long hair and apparently i shed a lot. I was wondering if i should be alarmed by the funny smell it leaves in the air. Its not like a burning rubber smell but more like a fresh plastic smell or sorta chemical like smell (hard to describe) and it doesn't need to be on to make this smell it seems to be permeating off the vacuum itself

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

I have a Kirby G5 vacuum that when light pressure is put on the handle it moves forward but in a jerky movement. Like the drive is engaging and disengaging. If you keep forward pressure on the handle the jerkiness does not happen. Is there an adjustment to correct this.

This is not an electrolux problem, but I am hoping one of the experts can answer the question. I have a Sears air compressor that suddenly stopped working. After looking at how the motor case is put together, it appeared that it would essentially have to be destroyed to get it apart and into the motor.

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I
