Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I had to remove the needle, now my needle won't stay in. When I tighten the needle clamp screw, the needle slips out. Am I missing a part on the end of the needle clamp screw?

Answers :

I've had this happen a few times. It's usually because I need to loosen the needle clamp screw a little more to make sure I'm getting the needle PAST the screw and far enough up in the channel so that it can be caught by the screw. I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution!
\012Good luck and happy sewing.

I have a Dyson DC-17 and the top of the cyclone has hair and other debris jammed in the ports. It has 6 six screws holding the parts together and I can only get access to 4 of the screws. The bottom piece appears to be removable, but I can't figure out how to remove it without damaging it. If I can get this piece off, then I have access to the other 2 screws. Can you tell me how to remove the bottom piece? Thanks in advance.

The instructions on how to dis-assemble your DC-17 are somewhat lengthy and it is quite helpful to have pictures and videos handy while you are doing it. Normally I would give the instructions here, but due to the amount of info that is necessary to ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Mystery part Bissell 1699-P. I removed the top cover and a part came tumbling out (from the rear of the machine - towards the handle area). I have no idea were this part belongs. I have a schematic of the cleaner but I can not locate the part on it. I tried to copy and paste a picture of the part but that isn't working so I will attempt to discribe the part: There is nothing stampted on the part that I can see. It is plastic(white), 2" long, 3/16" in diamater. One end is U shaped (u-shape is 1/4

I am trying to disassemble a electrolux 2100. I have looked at instructions given by Chemist 1961 and others. On the side, I have removed the rubber covers over the plastic rails but I can't remove the plastic rails that hold the rubber covers on. If I am right, these rails should just slide right out and the outer casing should come part.....or am I doing something wrong. I have pulled and pulled the rails and they don't budge.

Hoover Wind Tunnel 7500 Brush not Turning. I have replaced the Brush and the belt. The problem does not seem to be either to me. I believe might be a missing part. The place were the belt hooks on is a metal pole which never seems to grip the belt well. In fact it seems loose most of the time and slips on the brush, causing the belt to eventually burn up. Could there be a missing plastic or rubber piece meant to hold the belt taught  on the metal pole?

My 88 year old mother bought a Dirt Devel DHC001 - has been used twice but it looks blocked and has no suction but there is suction at the pipe end if I take it off.

I have a Eureka 5902AVZ and the brushroll does not work. when i remove the belt, which is not torn nor worn out, the motor spins perfectly fine. Though when i put the brushroll back into place, it shows that the motor is trying to spin, but with resistance. it seems the brushroll will not spin if locked into place, because there is no attachment on the left side of the brushroll that will allow it to spin freely with the belt. am I missing some parts or is there something else wrong?

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
