Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I just found a Casablanca Scandia fan and Love It ! Problem is - I'm reading that I can't adapt it for an 8 foot ceiling. Can't understand why it would be limited to 9 ft Isn't their anyway to adapt it ? Anything short of raising my ceiling - which I'm considering. Please help Barb


Answers :

The problem with the specs for the fan is that it already has most likely only a 2.5" downrod, so no more slack can be taken up. Companies are required by their safety and Osha and building code regulations to adhere to industry standards. That doesn't mean to say you can't ignore them for your own home, it just means that you have voided all liability for the company and it's product in not adhering to their minimum standards. The fan might be a little low for you, or it might not, and might work just fine. I installed one similar to this at a lower heighth years ago, and my brother was the only one who got hit with it, gesturing wildly above his head<smile>.
\015\012You can make a recessed bracket in an attic or false ceiling, that would allow the fan to hang at it's recommended heighth, that's always an alternative to raising the whole ceiling.
\015\012It's up to you, whether you can live with it a little lower, or should improvise.
\015\012Anyway, hope I helped, thanks for using FixYa, and good luck (nice fan! btw!)

I have a hoover upright bagless - turbo power 6500 The cord has been run over and I just noticed white stuff on the cord where it is tattered. My husband said he saw it 6 months ago and never said anything! Anyway, what is that white stuff in the cord? Is it dangerous in any way? Is it insulation? What is that usually made of? Just concerned since the cord is dragged over the floor and my little boy constantly has his hands and face on the floor. Thanks. Worried mom


It can be potentially dangerous. What you see is the cord insulation, if you move that a little you can see the power wires. They are coated and cannot hurt you if not damaged.

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

Broken hose The hose on my Hoover F5837-900 Steam vac Supreme broke away from the coupler on the bottom of the unit - under/behind the recovery tank (solution tube is till attached). It might have gotten pinched in there a couple times. Problem - it was glued in the coupler really well, and I cannot get the whole thing out - hose will be too short anyway - is there a way to fix this or a part I can order instead??

Spare wire? My SEBO X4 flex had to have the fex shortened because the cable sheathing had come out of the internal gripper and there was a couple of inches of two strand wire hanging out the cable entry point before the insulation sheathing started.

The second wire from this went down inside the handle and just ended with a bare terminal hanging in space. It hadn't come off anything, there wasn't anyth

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up. Is three years its normal lifetime or do I have the change the filters, instead of cleaning them? Thanks.

No suction. I have followed the detachable parts no suction. I have followed the detachable parts and it seems to have suction through to the base but doesn't pick up anything significant. I have looked through the hose connecting the base but I can not see anything obstructing it.


Poor suction can be caused by obstructions, poor air flow or a compomise in the air flow (hole in the hose). Since you have started with that I would next look at all filters and clean them. First check for suction at the motor, then at accessory hos ... Vacuums

HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary
