Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hi, I have a pre-lit christimas tree and the top section the plastic end that inserts into the previous section is broke. the company that provided the tree I guess is no longer in business. any idea how you would fix this? The top tilts because a piece of the plastic of is missing on the piece that inserts into the previous section..


Answers :

Find a piece of metal pipe with an interior diameter the size of the stem. Cut it long enough to cover the plastic fitting completely and press it over the old one. Put the upper section in position and fill the missing part with shards of wood - hammer them in place. Lastly just tape everything over.

I replaced the motor on shopvac model 92L625A and a little black plastic piece fell out between the switch on top and the actual rocker switch. I would like to know how toput it back together properly because it keeps falling out. Can you help or send a schematic?

On the piece that covers the brushbar and motor (the clear plastic piece that has the dyson logo), it looks like a small plastic ridge that holds the cap for the brushbar snapped off. Would too much wobbling of the brushbar cause it to turn on and off? The switch seems fine.


In theory, yes. If the brushbar isn't held firmly, then the belt isn't running smoothly which puts more strain on the motor. This can cause the motor to get hot very quickly which will trip the thermal overload protection. \015\012\015\01 ... Dyson DC15 All Floors - The Ball Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

We have a series 90S, 2.5 gallon Shop Vac. We used it for the first time to try and **** up water in the basement. Each time we turned it on, it would shut down after collecting less than 1" of water. We had to remove and squeeze out the foam sleeve each time, before it would work again (nowhere near 2.5 gallons!). Any ideas? Is the plastic sleeve that can move up and down inside, the float (poorest manual I've ever seen!)? Should there be a ball float that we're missing? Thanks for any s

Hello, we have a Miele cat and dog turbo 5000 vacuum cleaner which we bought in December. It has just started blowing air out of the grid on the top of the cleaner instead of sucking from the tube. The whole top section which is opened to change the bags doesn't seem to want to clip down properly either. Do you have any ideas> I'm gutted as it was so good until this happened. Thanks Michelle.


The lid not closing properly is almost certainly the cause of your problem. Without that lid sealed tight to the body you will get no suction through the hose. So, the question is: why isn't the lid clipping down properly? Did you just change the bag ... Vacuums

I bought a fantom vacuum on HSN about 9 years ago.Whan it was delivered the first one was broken so they sent a second one.tThat one also was cracked on covering for brush.

My Kenmore sewing machine timing has gotten off. I am sewing a big upholstery project and it starting bunching thread from the bobbin. The thread is so heavy that I had to put some pressure just to get it undone. This happen a few times and then I found it wasn't sewing at all. When I evaluated without the materials in place I could see the needle would catch on the white plastic piece under the bobbin and the thread would not catch on the metal arm.

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

Cracked On the bottom of my vacuum, the area around the belt housing is cracked. It looks as though the whole plastic bottom piece would have to be replaced just because of the crack.

Poor suction...continued Wow, thanks for answering so quickly! To answer your question, yes, there is suction at the screen, but it is very weak. I keep that screen clean. As a side note, I noticed that when I remove the top clear plastic cover (that would be part # 37 on the diagram, as far as I can tell) there is decent suction coming from the intake there--part 36? 30? it's hard to tell. But with the cover on, I feel no suction (from where it sucks up the water directly from the carpet),
