Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The Lifesaver smoke alarm model 1225 is hard wired, no battery and is chirping. I have it pulled out with wires coming out of the back, but can't open the front face to get in to disconnect the wire. Anyone know how to open it up?


Answers :

Hi, you should be able to grasp it and twist it to open/remove it from the juntion box to expose the 120 volt wires. They do not open like one with a battery type, so twist it I believe CCW to remove it from the box to disconnect the wires. Please be careful, wouldn't want you to get a shock!

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating

I am putting my bissel 8910 back together and behind the motor there is a black 3-way tubing connector. One side goes to the pump discharge, one side goes to a tubing going to the right rear wheel (facing the unit from the front) I don't know where the third side goes to.

I have a Liftmaster garage door opener and the garage door faces south. Normally the opener works great except at certain times on a sunny day.The sunlight is not directly hitting one of the sensors but the door will comedown as far as half way and then it will go back up and the lights will flash. If I go inside and use the button I can hold it down until the door is fully closed. However, sure is a pain to have to take the car out, go back into the garage, shut the door and then leave the h

My Dyson DC 24's beater bar switch didn't actuate and the beater bar didn't turn. When I brought it to a certified serviceman he told me that a wire interferred with the switch and all he had to do was move the wire out of the way of the switch. At the time the machine was under warrantee and it didn't cost me anything. Now however, the machine is out of warrantee and the problem has returned. Does anyone know how to access the switch and move the wire out of the way?

Have Dyson DC 14. When tilt to vacuum, the handle and coiled hose comes away from the unit.
