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

The kick stand that lowers the vacuum when in use got in a position where the red foot pedal would not come back up to bring the wheels down and the vacuum rest in the upright position. We took it apart and corrected the position, but the side with the small circular spring came out and we are not sure how to attach it back, exactly where it hooks onto. Can you help show us where it goes?

I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice? I really like this vacuum and would really like to fix it rather than replace it!

We have a Eureka 71B Hand-Held Vacuum and it looks like the belt broke. I removed the two screws at the bottom that should release the housing that holds the belt. However, the housing still does not come apart. Any advice? Thanks.

I am getting very little suction from the motor. The hose is clear, the bag new. When I open the bag cover, plug the hose in and turn the vacuum on, there is next to no suction from the motor. What do you think is wrong? How do I remove the cord retractor to get to the two screws that hold the back of the canopy cover?

Your problem is probably is you don't have a proper seal in your chasis. A vacuum has to be sealed tight or the air will leak out and the seal broken. Check around the whole body after the bag is in and check for any airflow noise. I could help more ... Vacuums

When we turn on the vacuum, the canister falls open. The clips holding the canister in place do not seem to hold the canister tightly which I'm sure that it did in the past. The clips do not look bent, but every time we turn on the vacuum the intense pressure blows the canister open only remaining attached the the rest of the vacuum by one clip

Check filter and make sure it is kept clean at regular intervals. Possibly worn out clip retainers on cannister side due to excessive pressure build up. Do not force closure unless pressure is back to normal. May crack cannister or damage unit beyond ... Hayden Industries SuperVac 6000 Central System Vacuum

Bisell Healthy home vacuum stopped working. The troubleshooting guide said there could be a problem in the connection at the handle. None of the phillips screwdrivers we have seem to work in removing the screw that holds the handle to the vacuum. What size phillips screw driver should we be using? If the screw is stripped, how can we get it out to replace it since it is not easily accessible in the handle?

You should use a p2 size phillips. there is only one screw right in the center that holds the handle assy on. frequently that screw backs out and allows the handle to slide back and loose connection. make sure the handle is tightly pressed in and the ... Vacuums

I have a Wertheim 4808 Barrel vacuum cleaner that has suddenly stopped working. I believe that there is a problem with the electrical cord connection inside. I have tried unsuccessfully to open the compartment that leads to that area. One side unscrewed with a phillips head screwdriver but the other side seems to have a different type of fixing screw that I am unable to undo. It is awkward to get at and in a deep slot and the head of the fixing screw? is not visible.

Our plug got pulled out (by driving away while the canister was still plugged-in after a vacuuming the car). How can we open up the unit to reattach the wires? We accessed two sets of screws (2pairs) toward the bag-end (not the motor-end) of the canister, but we can't locate any access for the two other apparent screws inside the body.

Remove all visible screws. Top and bottom, then once they are all removed, take a flat-head screwdriver and slowly pry around the canister until it comes completely loose and can be removed. Then you should have access to the wires which can then be ... Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum

My Triton T80 SI shower is leaking from where the outlet pipe assy joins to the heater can assembly. when I checked where the two join together I see that there is a rubber O ring fitting into a recess in the heater can assy. The screws which hold the two parts together does not force a compression between the two parts causing it to leak. Is there another modified unit or am I stuck with what Ive got and should I replace the O ring or the shower.

My DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum has a small attachment for vacuuming carpeted stairs. This attachment is currently not spinning its internal brush necessary to pickup the dirt on the stairs. The rest of the vaccum is working fine. The suction cap on this attachment is pulled out, as it should be. I have checked the vacuum over thoroguhly and there are no bloackages anywhere.

I have a cb9191j-10a vacuum that works fine but I am really disappointed by the small screw-on filter that quickly clogs up with dust and debris. There must be a larger type filter that could be used and this would make for a really fine vacuum. Could you suggest an alternative filter?
