Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Possible engine blow-up in Tristar vacuum

\015 5 days ago I was using the vacuum, and after 10 mins. or so, I smelled a slight electrical burning smell and i immediately turned it off. i tried again yesterday to use it, and almost immediately after turning it on I heard a pop, saw what looked like blue flames somewhere inside, and again it smelled like it was burning. Of course I immediately turned it off and haven't touched it since. Seems to me the engine is a goner, but I believe it has a lifetime guarantee. So where do I get a new engine? I live in the Dayton, Oh area so if you know of anyone that services Tristars in this area I'd be most appreciative. Thanks!\015

\015\012Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

\015\012If you are getting an electrical burning smell it is your vacuum motor and you need to replace it. I am not sure if you have a lifetime warranty or not – most warranties are for 1, 2 or 3 years on electrical parts but I can try to give you a website or phone number to TriStar to see if they can help you on this matter. Question? How old is the vacuum and what is the dop? Listed below are some of the phone #’s that might be able to help you. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I'm doing an engine rebuild on a 1986 Mazda Familia (*** import) BFMR B6 engine 16 dohc turbo. I'have no idea where all the vacuum pipes go. It has a blow off valve and a turbo boost control fitted. The car was bought by my son, a typical teenage boy racer.

Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?

The vacuum does not **** in dirt. It is blowing air instead. Yet when I disconnect the vacuum from the cannister, the suction seems very strong.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air.

So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I

It blows dust out the sides and you can't vacuum with it. Any help would be great.
