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,

There was no category for sewing machines....so I picked small appliance. When I depress the foot control E1 flashes on the LCD screen. I've followed the steps in the manual but it continues to flash E1. The machine will not operate. This is a brand new machine. I've used it only 3-4 times in the last 2-3 years. It worked perfectly until now.

Hi., If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, I have a Flair 3055 ventalation system in my house and over the last five years two fan motors have gone bad. it has been mickey moused together by a local repair man, and as of last week, it has died again. At 4-5 hundred a pop I would like to fix it myself, can anyone suggest a good replacement motor that will fit and work. My honey has breading problems and at this time of year, every penny is allocated, so time is of the essence. t


Hello George, Sorry about your predicament. Various fans are available for your unit but since you say the unit has been mickey moused together adjustments must have been made to the fan seating and system therefore if you order any particular fan th ... Vacuums

I have a model 1315 sears sewing machine and have a new walking foot that doesn't seem to fit or allow me to stitch.......is there a fix? The walking foot is a kenmore brand and we thought it would fit all kenmores?


I am sure that you realize that it has to be for a low shank machine and that you have to take off the presser foot and use the screw to clamp the walking foot on, and the fingers must be on the take up lever screw. Be sure to check the shank size. ... Vacuums

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vac

No Suction My two year old Kenmore Progressive stopped working in January. The guy at the Sears service center convinced me that buying a new one would be cheaper than getting it fixed. So I bought the exact same model and now this one has given out in the exact same way! I'm so confused. When I press on, it lights up and makes the whirring noise. Everything seems to be working but there is no suction anywhere. Not in the main part or the hose and there's no "cyclone effect" in the chamber. All


Try looking within the vacuum to see where the suction is getting stuck at. You may have to do some disasselbmeing but this is a manufacturers problem. You should also try to speak to the manager at the support and make a big dispute until you get yo ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

I need to change out the short hose on the underside of my older Dyson DC 07 Animal (Light Purple). It is the one less than a foot long on the underside which is attached on one end to the main body of the vacuum(I was able to remove this one) and the top of the upper soleplate. The latter one seems to be glued or otherwise permanently attached.Any assistance you could give me on this would be greatly appreciated....Thanks


Hello Cynthia,\015\012\015\012It's not glued, but it can be a little difficult to remove. You need to twist and pull at the same time and it should pull off. If it's being stubborn, squirt a little bit of WD40 / penetrating fluid where th ... Vacuums

Hi There I have got a Kirby 2 HG vaccum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from. I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

I have a 3 year old NuTone CV 353W central vac system and recently the switch on the hose handle does not turn the system on from any outlet in the house. I have to plug the hose into the outlet and then turn the unit on from the switch on the cannister. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks


A great way to check if your switch in the hose is bad would be to turn the hose sideways in the inlet. If the unit turns on you most likely need a new switch. ... Broan-NuTone CV450 Central Bagged Central System Vacuum

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5

Haier 65 pt Dehumidifier. I purchased a new Haier Dehumidifier 2 years ago. I believe this is the third season and it had been working great. Very quite and on humid day's, I have to empty it every 10-12 hrs. Two day's ago it just stopped working, no indicator lights. I plugged it into another outlet to be sure with the same result. I believe it is either the bucket switch or main switch. What do you think and where can I get parts. I live in MA.

The battery will not charge in the sweeper. I can remove the battery and wire it to the power supply for charging and it will charge up and run the sweeper. So the power supply and the battery are both good. Obviously there is a circuit failure in the on board charging control. Anyone know a fix or a likely faulty component?
