\015\012Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Some of the Eureka brushrolls have a sensor in the brushroll that indicates that the brush is moving and the sensor and the light are linked together – you may have a bad brushroll – to check that you need to remove the brushroll, stand it on end and spin it freely, if it does not spin the bearings could be bad or needs to be replaced with a new brushroll and a new belt. The belt change is every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning. . If you need further help please refer to a local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

Can the two inlet pipes be connected to one line? The central vacuum I have is probably from 1993/4. It has one exhaust pipe and two inlet pipes. It was initially under my stairs. I would like to move it and have in fact moved it to the garage but am now fitting the pipes. I would like to join the two pipes that were previously going to the two inlets into one pipe. Can I do it? Also would I then join the wires? Would I put a plate on the other inlet? THANKS. It is a SMART president's choice vac


There is no real reason why not...As long as you have enough "****" then that should be fine, you will need to "Y" join and NOT a "****" joint. ... Vacuums

I have owned 4 sebo uprite vacs. Every one of them has the same problem. Where the handle connects to the vac it break contact and shuts off and on. It seems the connection between these two parts is very weak. The only answer I get from my local repair shop is

I have a Craftman 5hp snowthrower model 53688501 that will not start. It will fire with gas down sparkplug hole, but runs only untill that gas is burned up. Fuel is present at carb, but I noticed that there are two brass fittings on each side of the carb for vacume lines or something, and they have no lines connected to them. Did I lose the lines that should be connected? Or do I have some other problem. The unit is 4 years old and has the Briggs and Stratton eng model 9A413-0202-E1


This sounds like the carburetor needs disassembled and cleaned. This happens over time and the tiny orifices plug up. Usually from letting gas set in them for extended periods of time and it gums up. If you are not familiar with them, I would take ... Craftsman Vacuums

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile

Hoover Model U8185-900 beater bar part keeps smoking and burning up We've replaced the part Hoover PCB Display Bridge U8172 three times and the vac beater bar works for about a minute then the part starts to smoke and burns out again.

I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest


I'm not sure why this is happening. Perhaps if you would contact Hoover and explain the problem to them such that it appears that there is a safety issue with their product, they might be more cooperative. If that fails, I have had luck writing let ... Hoover U8185-900 Upright Vacuum

I have used my Steam Vac for carpeting, but until today, had never tried cleaning upholstery with the spin-scrub brush. I spent a miserable afternoon trying to control the spray, which seemed to go everywhere AROUND the furniture, but not ON the furniture! Additionally, I never did get the water into the recovery tank, despite many attempts to connect and re-connect the hoses and recovery tank/lid.


I can sympathize. My vac came with two handheld attachments. I have better luck with the handheld attachment that doesn't have the spin-scrub pads.
