Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a sock stuck in the hose of my vacuum cleaner. Rennaisance canister model. Because of the design of the handle I can't utilize the reverse blower. Please advise. Thanks

Try taping a fishing hook or some such onto the end of a straightened out coat hanger. See if you can push it up the hose and hook the sock.

Or, remove the hose entirely, and push a broom handle down the hose.

Hi: My DC14 (not animal version) has 3 major cracks that have pretty much killed the thing. There are three 'columns' that run down from the handle to the base. From the back, the left one has either the intake or outflow for the canister and the right one has the reverse. The middle one is where the base of the extension hose and cord is mounted. On all three the plastic has cracked at about the point where the bottom of the canister meets the permafilter. The vacuum is useless now and

My infinity vac NV29 seems to have an extension wand stuck down in then tube and I am not able to get it out. We rented our winter home and evidently they found some type of extension that did not belong to it. Is there a way to take the handle apart in order to remove it? I am not able to use it with the handle and have to use the one on top of the canister, which is extremly difficult for me since I am disabled. Thank you.

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.

I have an Easy-Flo central vac unit. The handle on the electric hose has a switch on the handle. With the switch on ''O'' in the center, it's off. On the left, is the ''I'' position.

Poor design Our Shark was bought in Dec. This morning my husband started it up and while doing the steps the handle snapped off at the plunger site.. It is sooooo poorly made that it was only attached by a small plastic weld. The design is definately flawed and for the cost of the machine it is disgusting. As far as we can see, there is no repair that can be done.
