Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I need to change the roller/beater on an Electrolux genesis..can't seem to figure out how..and I am handy


Answers :

Lay machine down flat on it's front. There are 4-5 screws on the bottom of the power nozzle that need to be removed. The screw on the front corner is different, make sure you get this replaced correctly. After removing those, there should be two tabs, also on the bottom, that need to be released using a flathead screwdriver. They're located in the square hole, and with a twist of the screwdriver are easily released.
\015\012Turn vacuum on to it's back and gently lift off cover of power nozzle. Do not force. Remove screws holding the brush in. Carefully remove brush. This is also a good time to replace the belt.
\015\012Make sure at each step to observe carefully how you take it apart. Take care in putting it back together to prevent future problems.

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta


You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

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

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems


Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums

G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.

I have a Sears shop vac.... i tipped it over this morning and the filter came off. No big deal, but there was a plastic or PVC cup inside, and i can't figure out whether the opening of this cup should face up [ceiling] or face down [floor]. I can't find my manual around, so i need help..... seems like it's leaking dust from the out port now, so.....?


You may need to better describe the cup on the filter, but if it has a handle on it, it's the end cap. The handle part will face the floor and you should be able to screw the cap on, securing the filter. ... Vacuums

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.
