Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The tension knob came off of the front of my sewing machine while I was sewing. I cannot figure out how to put it back on. I have the metal rod that fits into the back of the tension knob, but cannot figure out how to put it back into place. Keeps falling off


Answers :

It sounds like your machine is the kind that has a knob with a 'set screw', a teeny tiny screw that tightens and holds the thing in place on the rod. Look for a small hole, probably on the bottom and look for a very small screw near the machine.
This is what a basic tensioner assembly looks like assembled. The little hooked spring that holds the thread (if there is one) goes on first, then the retainer for that spring. The two dished washers go on next, convex parts together and then the main spring held on by the adjusting knob.

My Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.9 brush roller quit working. Upon investigating I found that the idler arm pulley was broken so I managed to replace that. Before putting the cover back on I see the control knob for the roller brush moves a plastic piece left or right to activate/deactivate the brush roller. I don't know where this plastic piece connects. It appears to me that the idler are when raised creates tension on the belt which drives the roller. I'm at a loss trying to figure ou

I also have a Hoover upright and I need to replace the electrical cord. I have dimantled the back, where the tools are stored, and the hose. I still cannot find the screws or whatever, to get to the area behind the cord, so I can replace it. I think I will have to take off the bottom too. Has anyone out there tried to do this? It seems crazy. This machine works great so I hope I can also put it back together. Thanks for the help.
