Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I tried to shred a credit card and it will not go in reverse or forward. What tool do I use to take the cover off to remove it.


Answers :

First of all, unplug the shredder. You could use either option, try the first one, first.

1) Unwind a metal paper clip and use those and tweezers to pull the shards out of the tines of the shredder.

2) The Dollar store sells a little set of screwdrivers for $1. There are some in the set that are very thin and will fit into the hole to unscrew the screws.

Motor/Fan does not run. I have removed and taken the top of the canister plastic motor housing apart and tested for power. I have power through the cord to the switch and power from the switch to the two wire terminals. I have not removed the motor. Looks like I will need special tools to take out the motor. The Vac looks almost new. It has been setting for several years. What do you think?

Brushes stopped The brushes stopped turning while using the cleaner. I removed the brushes to see if the spindle was broken, it wasn't. I then removed the top plastic cover and checked the switch that engages the brushes; it didn't seem to be moving correctly. There's one spring on the switch - should there be two? Or do you think something has broken on the inside? Thanks for any help

I have the Bissell Proheat (7901) It will pick up water and the hand tool works fine. I noticed that the red indicator stopped spinning. Then I noticed no water was coming out. If I put down water using the hand tool, the vacunme will pick it up. When I called Bissell they had me do something with the indicator. When it didn't work they said take it in for repair.

Hi, I have a Sebo X4 which is almost 3 years old. I haven't had any problems with it until the last couple of days when I notice a slight screeching noise when in upright position, coming from the roller mechanism area. If I slightly push the sebo forwards it gets worse, if I tip it back it stops. If I take the roller out and switch on, there is no noise. I have always been careful not to tip the machine forwards when using the hose, but I recently lent it to a friend whose hoover had broken do

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.

HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary

I bought the vac, used, but was told there was nothing wrong with it. I called the company, and was given the impression that it will be a huge headache to return it. Here's the best part: when I received it, I opened the box: it was broken. Clearly the highest internal piece of the vacume, whent he handle is removed, was cracked off, and in two pieces. The handle will not lock into place, so if I were to vacume forward, see ya, and the vac is back in pieces. Any idea how to rig this to get it t

Hi. We've got a Dyson DC17 "Animal". It's clogged, and we are unable to separate the purple cyclone cap from the main cyclone body to get to the problem. We've heard of 4 torx screws that take some interesting tactics to access. I've been through this thing with a flashlight, and torx tools for a protracted period, and even after removing the torx screws was unable to ultimately separate the two pieces (main body from purple cap assembly). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx -

My 88 year old mother bought a Dirt Devel DHC001 - has been used twice but it looks blocked and has no suction but there is suction at the pipe end if I take it off. I have opened the red end and emptied out but there seems to be dust in the rear part and I have no idea how to get it out. The shop she bought it off thought they were being helpful and removed all packaging but seem to have taken instructions as well.

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

Steam buggy water reservoir cap has apparently been cross threaded, and cannot be removed by twisting or other "encouragement." If I cut it off, where can I get a replacement? Can the machine be used as is by taking the insert out of the cap and filling the reservoir through the opening? Is there a current manufacturer of this product?


You need to completely annihilate the plastic cap by cutting it off and destroying the remaining plastic to expose the stainless steel insert/plug. You can use either a pipe wrench or 11mm wrench to turn the insert counter-clockwise to unscrew. You w ... Tristar SB Steam Buggy Vacuum
