Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The aluminum pot that goes in my rice cooker has started leaking after 16-18 years. Is there any fix? Is it trash. I doubt I can find a replacement pot. Thanks for your time.


Answers :

I cannot think of any repair, that would work on thin aluminium and be safe for food preparation. (not that i would eat from afterwards anyway).
if it leaks, it is almost certainly too thin to weld.
i would not trust soldering/brazing with the heat.
chemical sealers/glues are not suitable for food prep items.

i am sorry, but i think it has cooked its last meal
You might try taking it to a local welding shop. They should be able to weld on Aluminum and fix the crack. If it's painted or coated that may need to be re-done.

Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1

Could I have a short in my cord? I can vacuum & then when I move the canister it shuts off, if I wiggle the cord it will turn back on. This last time, it just revs like a car trying to start & then does nothing. I live in a VERY remote area (80 miles from nearest Wal-Mart or McDonalds) so I know I will not be able to find someone to repair this for me. I have great doubt that I will be able to do it myself & my husband is an accountant so he is unavailable for another 6 weeks!!!!! Any suggestion

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

I have a Husqvarna Viking Designer sewing machine. The fuse blew in the machine and I am having trouble finding a replacement fuse. It is a T3.5/250v glass fuse. Please let me know where to find one.

I cannot find the directions for my Utilitech 1-outlet timer. It has two numbers on the back: #148297 and #TMO1DHBL.

Wheel modules? It's more likely to be the cleaning head module. Clean your brushes exactly as the manual describes-- particularly the yellow bearings.
