I need a overhaul and repairs on my tefal ultraglide filterscale electronic iron. It was bought in December 1997. I think that it is gummed up in the Aqua-system and needs a new cassette as well as a good cleaning.

I'm not sure if it needs a good cleaning or a new belt. I called the vac place & they want $80 for cleaning it...more if it needs parts of course.


Try calling someone else a tune up should be about $40-45. Most likely it is the belt though. The belt should be about $6 or 7 bucks. ... Electrolux 4870 Bagged Vacuum

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.

I have bought new Hoover bags on two occasions. The first spares I bought were the Xxxl variety and I didn't think they fitted that well. The next spares I bought were the type g megafilt. I still feel like they do not fit that well and the suction power on the vacuum is not as good. I'm I buying the correct replacements? I followed the guidelines on the Hoover bags the vacuum came with. These were printed as the right bags to buy. I only have the vacuum around a year and thought it was brillian

My Dyson Animal is not picking up very well in the drive position. With the hose the pick up is still very good. I have had it for 2 yrs now with very little problems. I have cleaned out all areas etc pipes, the brush underneath and cant find any blockages. The noise of the dyson is the same as usual. Could you tell me if there is a part that it sounds like it needs?

I just bought a good Sears Kenmore Progressive 300 upright vacuum (116.38812891) today at a garage sale for five bucks. I left my relic Electrolux with the new owners of my former home during a recent relocation. In the interim I bought a Bissel 3750H which I do not care for, and borrowed a Eureka 7685 AU which performs somewhat better. I cleaned up the Kenmore, and though it seems to run well, noticed the drive belt is showing signs of degeneration. I would like to replace it, but was unable t

I lost the detergent container on my Hoover Model F7220-900. Its a small plastic bottle that sits on the back of the clean water tank. I called the help desk and they told me that they no longer make that part so I have to pay $55 to replace the whole tank which will come with a detertent container built in. The whole carpet cleaner was only worth about $225 new. I don't feel I should have to pay $55 for a part I don't need but the machine is worthless without it. Any good ideas to solve th

Poor suction We bought a model home about 11 years ago and it had the Cental M&S Cyclonic Cleaning system. The suction has steadily been weakening. Now it is almost non-existant. I clean the filter bag in the main unit, but how clean does it need to be. Could there be a clog in the wall lines. If yes, how does one unclogg them. Thank you. I liked the system and would hate to just give up on it. Jean

Electrolux twin clean vacuum cleaner. After 5 minutes it keeps of thinking the filters need cleaning (and they don't). I re charge the power, and all seems fine and then it goes back to wanting the filters cleaned. The suction is also not working to full capacity.


Because the suction is not working fully it feels that the bags must be full and the air cannot be pulled through the bags. It could be due to 1) bags not being of correct quality. The air has to pass through them to allow all the dust to reach there ... Vacuums
