I want to repair my philips shaving machine - Vacuums
The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?
As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hello, I have an Electrolux vacuum. In desperation, I vacuumed up some water and my machine stopped. I am hesitant to take the machine to a repair place for fear that if it is a simple repair they will not be honest. Can anyone give me advice on whether this is a problem that requires a new motor or major repair? Thank you!
Although it's never to be recommended, it is sometimes possible to vacuum up a little water without doing significant damage. However, the fact that your machine then stopped suggests that the electrics got wet. That may or may not have caused expens ... Vacuums
Does not vacuum effectively. It smells like it is burning. I have only had this one year and hardly use it. When I brought it to a local vacuum repair place, he wanted to sell me another one, and, of course, wanted to trade mine towards another.
Miele vacuums are famous for having hair and carpet fibers getting caught in the roller bearings. That can cause a bad smell. The motors in Mieles are very well built and I have a hard time believing that the suction motor is going bad in 1 year. ... Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I would really like to wash the outer bag of my vacuum, but I have a problem. I can remove the outer bag from the vacuum, but the plastic 'frame' that is inside the outer bag is sewn to the bag. So what am I supposed to do about that if I want to put it in the washing machine? I have the Oreck XL Silver.
Hi, you can wash the bag. However you cannot wash the bag in the wash machine. What you will want to do is look for the screw or depending on the model, untwist the cap down on the rod next to the machine. that entire pole section will co ... Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I brought an eureka model 2591av shapoo machine in 2004 I've only used the machine 4 times. now the it does not spray out the solution on the floor but it will **** up water, the vacuum part works. I took it to a repair shop, they said it was the pump that was broke and will cost $95.00 to fix.

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

The motor just went out on my 2 year old vacuum with light usage (hardwood floors in a very small house.) The Sears repairpeople are estimating ~ $130 to fix (this includes parts & labor). I'm wondering if it's worth investing $130 into something i've spent $350 on only 2 years ago. Shouldn't these machines last longer ? Is there something I could do to get them repair free as it seems the motor must have been faulty to only have lasted 2 years. Thoughts ?
Aye, get a dyson, if its out of warranty there's not much u can do bout it :( ... Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum
I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating
Local vacuum repair shop replaced motor in Oreck XL 2600HH and now the lights blow out immediately upon powering up the machine. I believe the wires for the lights were mis-wired to the terminal blades on the motor housing. is there a wiring diagram available to properly connect the wires to the motor housing?
Hello. if this repair just occurred return this vacuum to that repair shop as they owe you a valid repair. I agree that they caused the lights blowing out problem. They must repair this for no charge. If you work on it yourself they will blame yo ... Oreck XL2600 Vacuum
Took my miele canister vacuum cleaner in for repair because the cord had a break in it creating a short. He said it also needed an inter filter ($12.29) and the carbon brushes were worn out ($21.95). Is that possible? Also wanted to service the motor and put in a new seal ($49.95) Shouldn't that include the inter filter and carbon brushes?
Depending on the age of the vacuum and how much use it gets, the first two are possible. I would question the brushes as they should last for several years.\015\012The servicing is generally for labor only and doesn't include parts. I do reco ... Miele Vacuums
Does the philips active carbon filter FC 8033 fit the model of vacuum cleaner I own (HR 8903/A)? My catalog says I should replace with HR 6969 but was sold the FC 8033 filter. My machine seems to be overheating and I wonder if it has anything to do with the new filter.

This was my grandmothers machine and when she passed there was no owners manual so I am not sure how to use the settings on it or oil it properly. I so want to use it cause it was hers but don't want to mess up the machine. She never even got a chance to use it before she passed away. I just have no owners manual.
