Can power unit for shop vac 90550a be fixed
Its for a central vac system. I have very low suction power. I've emptied the dirt trap. It seems the fan is working ok, so I guess theres a clog somewhere but I have no idea how to find and fix it. I have no manual on the unit as it was in the house when we bought it. I'd guess its same age as house (19 years old). Any advice would be graetly appreciated!
Usually, low suction would indicate access ports allowing air to enter the system. Easy to test system however. Test vacuum first. Remove intake hose to vacuum ( at the vacuum canister ) and place your hand over intake. You should feel considerab ... Vacuums

Eureka Boss Smart Vac 4870 evidentally overheated. Allowed unit to cool and observed a spark/smoke at outlet when it was replugged into the power outlet. Unit will not power up now. Circuit breakers in the home are fine. Is there a fuse that can be replaced in the unit? Does the unit need to be serviced? Is there a Eureka Authorized Service Center in Orlando, Florida?
Seems Eureka is putting faulty, insufficient wiring in many models, most especially my model (if you do a search of this site, you will be how many people have experienced fried wires and switches). There should be a class-action lawsuit in my opini ... Vacuums

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that. I think this happened once before and maybe they replaced a circuit board(?). We took it to a local repairman this time and he says he can fix it temporarily with a new cartridge, but that he won't promise it won't happen again soon.....

I've been using a small shop vac in the seller to vacuum up dust, sawdust etc. I have emptied the inside and the filter looks laden with dust. It does not "****" any longer. What is wrong and what do I do to fix it?
You have to clean the filter too. Use an air hose to clean it or brush it off with a stiff brush or you can wash it if it isn't paper. As a last resort you can get a new one. ... Shop Vac 925-13 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have an Easy-Flo central vac unit. The handle on the electric hose has a switch on the handle. With the switch on ''O'' in the center, it's off. On the left, is the ''I'' position. The vacuum runs but the power brush doesn't. On the right is the ''II'' position. The switch won't flip that way. It feels stuck. It feels as if there is something underneath of it that won't let it push that direction. I have the switch out of the handle, but I can't seem to get the actual black casing around the

Took my Miele Solaris canister vac in for repair as it wouldn't turn on. The repairman said to come back the next day for the estimate. I called and he said I needed a new cord reel and it would be $189. I drove to his shop and said I would wait to do it later, that I wasn't ready to spend that much. When I came home, it started right up but has no power and doesn't sound right, the noise of the motor is real soft, not as loud as before. I have this terrible feeling that when we decided not to

Hoover bagless cannister 3765 - belt on power head slips off spindle. bought new belts - same problem. is this a design problem or can it be fixed?

I would not recommend a smaller belt. You will only wear the motor. This model series power nozzle needs to have a metal clip installed near the belt on the brush roller housing.
