Having problems with your Dirt Devil Kurv Bagless Cordless Hand Vac - Spice ?

My Dirt Devil kurv no longer recharges. I think I need to replace the battery. Called the manufacturer and they can't help me.

Answers :

Obtaining a battery will be difficult; I had a similar problem with my Kone model. Check that the plug you have has a fresh new fuse though as it may be the connection lead. \015\012
\015\012Sadly because the batteries are built into the machine its difficult to find a replacement - ALL cordless hand dust busters suffer from difficult to find batteries because at cost they are reasonably cheap and not really designed to have batteries that can be found easily. \015\012
\015\012Well not until someone brings out a model that has batteries that are available...
This rechargeable vacuum, like most ni-cd based rechargeable items, uses what is called a "sub-c" ni-cd battery. If you manage to ge the item open with minimal damage, you can replcaes these re-chargeable batteries. You will most likely need to solder the new batteries in, since that is the way they install them. SO, if you are comfortable soldering, then buy some sub-c nicd batteries and get out the solder iron. This particular Curve uses 8 of these batteries for a total of 9.6V - each battery is 1.2v. Most likely all are not bad, but you will need a meter to find the bad ones. You can find these batteries for about $1.5 each on ebay. Good luck.

I lost the detergent container on my Hoover Model F7220-900. Its a small plastic bottle that sits on the back of the clean water tank. I called the help desk and they told me that they no longer make that part so I have to pay $55 to replace the whole tank which will come with a detertent container built in. The whole carpet cleaner was only worth about $225 new. I don't feel I should have to pay $55 for a part I don't need but the machine is worthless without it. Any good ideas to solve th

After removing the filter, I cannot get to battery on the Dirt Devil Kone M0213, there are two horizontal screws.

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5

I Have two questions concerning my AIRVAC AV2500 Red Series Vacuum System. How do you replace the light in the floor power head sweeper and can you replace the permanent fabric filter? We had the system installed in 2004 and the light in the sweeper head just went out and can not find any manual on line on how to replace it. The filter if not torn but avter 6 years it probably needs some kine of cleaning or replaced even though it says permanent. Any help would be appreciated. Jim McCluskey
