Having problems with your Vacuums ?
My old faithful Hamilton Beach Mixer, now 60 years old, is still
working but recently I was told by someone who looked at the
motor that it needed repair or replacement. Is it still possible
to get it in working condition?
If the armature shaft is worn there might be a problem, but that would be about the only one, Bushes/bearings can be replaced as can brushes. If the armature shaft is worn, a fix can be formulated but it will require some engineering work. Come back to me if you require any more information on this repair,

We have a Singer 626 sewing machine. It's an old mechanical machine with heavy metal parts. The stitch selector was stuck, I removed the top and helped the selector to move. when I had to move the selector again, it was stuck and I pushed too hard and broke a component. I can fix the machine if I had a repair manual. I need to buy a repair manual. How and where can I get one? Thankjs Charlie PS.

I have a whirlpool personal valet steamer system that is mounted to the wall. The system was in the house when I purchased it so I would suspect it's about 8 - 10 years old and I cannot find the manual for it. When I push the start button it automaitcally cancels the set up and will not run. I have unplugged it for a while and then put it back in and it's worked before but not anly longer. How do i get a manual or can I find a repair person to look at it.
This is not an electrolux problem, but I am hoping one of the experts can answer the question. I have a Sears air compressor that suddenly stopped working. After looking at how the motor case is put together, it appeared that it would essentially have to be destroyed to get it apart and into the motor. I received a new compressor for my birthday so I decided to tear into the old one to do some diagnosis. After getting into the case where I could see the motor/pump, I have discovered the prob

We have a series e rainbow cleaner. my wife had been using it i turned off and turned the canister up sie down to get the serial number. it would not turn back on.we need a new hose and thats why i was looking for the serial num. it has a rocker switch and the motor will work on low but will not run on the suction side. i have checked the wiring harnesses out as best i could without taken it all apart. im wondering if it may be the switch. it started once and then stopped.
There is one way to verify if it is the switch.It's kind of dangerous though,but not too bad.You need an extra piece of wire,fairly thick.I would use 4 guage myself.Hold it with pliers,just in case it gets hot.Turn the switch on and hold the wire to ... Rainbow Vacuums
