Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Kenmore canister vacuum 1162651190 power cord wont retract. I paid for an email response yesterday, but then stupidly misspelled my email address, so haven't received the response. Can someone help?


Answers :

Many a times the lint\015\012gets collected on the reel coil.Remove the coil clean the lint and replace it\015\012and see.--------- the\015\012reel cord jammed.
\015\012\015\012

To get at the reel cord assembly remove\015\012the top bag cover and the tool storage holder by lifting and pull over backwards\015\012until they release from the canister base.
\015\012\015\012

Then with the canister on a waist high\015\012surface and the bag side pointing towards you reach over the vacuum and put you\015\012finger behind the cord release lever and pull forward and up at the same time\015\012to release the lever. It will not break but it will take some effort to snap it\015\012loose.
\015\012\015\012

Note! Keep track of the coil return\015\012spring for the button and locate where it goes so you can return to is proper\015\012location.
\015\012\015\012

These two steps will expose the 4\015\012screws that hold the motor canopy remove and lift straight up to take off.
\015\012\015\012

Now you can release the back lash of\015\012the reel cord and spool. If you push the cord reel release in steps when you\015\012done using the vacuum it will be less likely to back lash. If you just hold the\015\012lever down all the way it gets going to fast and may back\015\012lash.------------------ Remove\015\012the tool storage compartment and the dust bag. Remove the 2 screws at the rear\015\012of the dust bag area. These screws are sometimes covered by a rubber furniture\015\012guard. Remove the cord retract button. This plastic button pulls straight up to\015\012remove. It is difficult and you will think you are going to break it, but you\015\012won't. There are 2 screws under the cord retract button. With these screws\015\012removed the top will lift off the lower body.------------
\015\012\015\012

Try this procedure and\015\012see ,if it helps. Keep updated with the results.-------- The procedure is as\015\012follows:---
\015\012\015\012

You\015\012will need to take the machine apart to correct this. Open the front of the\015\012canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there\015\012are two vinyl covered strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on\015\012these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl separates from the plastic\015\012underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and\015\012pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has\015\012never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the\015\012strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the\015\012sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come off\015\012relatively easily, and everything will be exposed. Now, assuming that the cord\015\012winder isn't damaged, you should be able to wind the cord in by hand. Once it\015\012gets started it may start to retract automatically. Usually the spring just\015\012gets in a bind against the housing when it's over extended, and rolling it in\015\012by hand a little will free it up.
\015\012\015\012

This\015\012should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My DC-25 will not return to the upright position. I emailed Dyson support and the response was: "The DC25 stabilizer wheels will not lock into position if the “spokes” on the red pedal are not seated correctly." I agree with that assessment, but cannot figure out how to get the spokes on the red pedal to seat correctly. The manual is useless for this problem since that part of the vacuum cleaner came already assembled, so the manual does not address it. Help.


It sounds like the undercarriage unit has failed. It is a common problem on ball models. The DC25 is a recent model so would still be under Dyson's 5 year guarantee. Get them out to it. ... Dyson DC15 All Floors - The Ball Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet - HELP!!!! We're read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.


First things first. It's only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected und ... Vacuums
