I'm trying to remove the power switch assembly for my Dyson DC25 so I can replace the power cable. I took out the 3 screws with a T15 screwdriver and released the top two retainter pins, but the lower half of the assmbly won't detach. Please help!


Answers :

Replace the two bottom screws but don't tighten up just a few turns in will do, then using the screwdriver push firmly each screw and this will release the lower part of the cover hope this helps.

I just bought a Hoover Power Drive Concept Two Electronic vacuum from the thrift shop. It only needed two belts and seems powerful. But i don't understand what the small red button on the handle marked "Release Drive" means. Thanks for any insight! Anything else i need to know about this machine? Is it a good one? Are there high-performance bags available for it?

Motor/Fan does not run. I have removed and taken the top of the canister plastic motor housing apart and tested for power. I have power through the cord to the switch and power from the switch to the two wire terminals. I have not removed the motor. Looks like I will need special tools to take out the motor. The Vac looks almost new. It has been setting for several years. What do you think?

Roomba Stops I've had a Roomba for about 2 months. Lately, it runs for about 45 secs, then stops, makes a two-tone (descending) sound, and flashes the CLEAN button while the STATUS button is red. I've emptied the dustbin on it. Can you help? I am seeing the same problem on my roomba today. I cleaned all that I could., the brushes, the pins on the sides and all that and it still gives the same problem..Any other fix?

I Have two questions concerning my AIRVAC AV2500 Red Series Vacuum System. How do you replace the light in the floor power head sweeper and can you replace the permanent fabric filter? We had the system installed in 2004 and the light in the sweeper head just went out and can not find any manual on line on how to replace it. The filter if not torn but avter 6 years it probably needs some kine of cleaning or replaced even though it says permanent. Any help would be appreciated. Jim McCluskey

The electricity in the apt attached to my house lost power in two of the walls. It happened when the cleaning ladies I think were using a vacuum, they don't speak english very well so I'm not sure.
