I have a hoover f5861-900 steam vac. the trigger mechanism seem to not work anymore. Water dribbles out without using the trigger. Taking the water tank out I can see the rod very slightly moving on the diaphragm. I removed the top part of the vac to hopefully reset the rod connection. But, didn't make any difference. I appreciate any help you can give me. thanks

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John


It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum

I bought a used vacuum seal machine (hobart model ht-120) it does excellent vacuum but it doesnt seal correctly all the time. it seems like there is something wrong with the valve that activates the bar that goes up and makes pressure and heats the bag for complete sealing. The heating is perfect but what is not working is what make the bar go up and down.

The mechanism that rolls back in the power cord seems to be working slower and sometimes not at all. Was wondering if the mechanism in question has an adjustment to increase the tension on it so the power cord goes in faster like it used to. Thanks Rafael

Hi -- I have a Kirby Sentria and it is great except that I am getting no suction at all through the big silver power head. Suction through all the other attachments works well. I haev tried it with the roller belt on and off, and that doesn't seem to make a difference. Am I missing something?? Thanks!


You can take off the power head and look in that whole where the belt is and see if there is a paper towel or something in there clogging it up. Also tug on the belt and make sure it is tight - because if it is loose it is broken and you ... Kirby Vacuums

Canister powerhead brush does not seem to spin when the carpet level adjustment is on any level other than "high". Could it be something as simple as needing a new belt and is there a difference in a regular belt as opposed to "whisper belt"?


The belt is worn/stretched to the point that it cannot take the load on low level setting due to more resistance against the carpet and there is also no signifagant difference between the two belts except for expecting a longer belt life from the whi ...

Why doesnt my Dyson auto adjust on our carpet? We have a taller, soft carpet and it digs into it, making it very difficult to vacuum. We have had the vacuum for about a year at another house and it worked GREAT on the berber......our new has a tall carpet somewhat like shaved berber and now the vacuum wont work.

The brushes will not spin when in the lock down position. I adjusted the arm internally and it does not seem to apply enough pressure to have it fully lock down. Can the mechanisms wear out.


This unit has a rubber "clutch" piece to engage the brush which must be replaced occasionally. See if you can move the brush with your fingers while holding the belt to prevent it from turning - be sure the switch is set to carpet, and the motor is o ... Riccar 8955 Upright Vacuum

I have a roomba 551. Have cleaned and removed every bit of dirt and hair off it bu the brush cage won't close when the larger bush is put in. The cage will only click locked on one side, and the other side keeps hitting the brush and won't close. It's almost as if the bursh itself is not even, but this doesn't seem to be the case either. I've even tried removing the yellow rings, but makes no difference. Occasionally it runs fine, but most of the time the roomba just hobbles and clacks as i

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry. I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I

No suction I have new belts. Everything is clean. No clogs. When I turn it on it smells like rubber , the brush doesnt spin. Everything seems to be free flowing.. Roller brush isnt stuck on the ends. Took off hose to make sure no clogs anywhere. There is not even suction thru the hose with the handle in upright position.

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.


Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt. If you have another belt for this vacuum, please put it on and see if the noise stops. If it does ... Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum

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??
