Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hi, the seal from the impeller and pump shaft leaked. got new seal kit and installed. only disconnected the contacts piece to get clean attachment to shaft and the points now stay together looking like the springs are frozen thanks for your help

Answers :

Hi ggetman38...
\015\012That is normal
\015\012What you are talking about is the centrifugal switch, they will swing apart when the motor rotates, they are there to start the motor with the points touching each other at motor start.
\015\012Just make sure you lube lightly the movable joints and make sure the springs are in there right places and not worn heavly.
Maybe the weights/plates have to be pushed the opposite way before installing on the shaft.

On my Eureka Model 1759A (from mid-1980s), the plastic catch that holds the two parts of the metal body together has broken. I would like to replace the part of the catch that attaches to the top (the part with the lip on it), but I can't find the part online ... or even a drawing. Where can I get this part ? ? ? HELP ! ! !

This latch is riveted to the body. If you are lucky you may find an old Eureka warranty/ repair center with one on the shelf, or another canister for parts. That will be your best hope. ... Vacuums

My Tim Horton's (Bunn) Coffee Maker won't stop boiling the water really hard (to the point where it practically boils the full pot away). When I go to make coffee the next time it's boiled so hard that it doesn't give me a whole pot of coffee just like 3/4 of a pot, and if I haven't used it in like a day it's boiled it down to half a pot??... it's beginning to make me angry, as I have cleaned it in the past for this trouble, but it doesn't help or make a difference. Can somebody please help me??

There is a shaft that comes out of the pump of my Bissell 1623-1 Power Steamer with gears on it. The belt to the brush attaches to it. When I went to change the belt, the belt was fine but the gear itself with the small shaft on it was no longer attached and just dropped out. It looks like there might have been a bushing there, but no more. Any ideas?

Hi! I have a Pfaff Creative 1475. The presser foot seems "gummed up" or stuck. The back lever lifts it with great force, but then instead of staying up like the lever usually does - it then falls back down. The lifting foot stays stuck up and I have to push on it to get it back down. Help?

Vorwerk VK121 vacuum cleaner - smell of burning from housing enclosing motor. How do I get into the housing to inspect the motor? After tilting the bag sideways, there are two screws holding the housing visible, but there seems to be a thrid fixing inside the point where the handle shaft is attached - is the handle simply clipped in place? Thanks

Yes the handle is clipped in place and should come out when the button in front is pushed. Remove the screws you wrote about. After that the puzzle begins. At the bottom of the vacuum where the head is attached, remove the head by pressing the but ... Vacuums

I have a kirby sentria. vacuumed up my son's headphones and immediately shut if off. took brush off, unwound headphones, put it back together. when i turned it back on, the belt snapped. so i went to vacuum place, got new belt, but when i put it on, with the green arrows lined up, it doesn't have much suction. with the red arrows lined up, it just smells like its burning and i don't want to break another belt! HELP!!

Take the front off the vacuum and check inside both the front portion and the canister for additonal clogs. Sometimes something will get caught in the impellor, causing the motor to overheat. Since there's little suction and the smell, I'd guess th ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum

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?
