Having problems with your Electrolux Harmony Canister Vacuum - EL6985 Vacuum ?

Lid won't close. I started to put in a new bag but accidentally took out the plastic insert section the bag should attach to--so when I closed the lid over that, I must have pushed a little too hard. Now it won't com[pletely close! The plastic clasp is intact. Is there anything I can do before having to haul or send it for repair?


Answers :

We have a Starbucks Barista Aroma Grande Cat. #BA12 1200 W 120 Volts 60 HZ -- bought in about 2006. The lid to the coffee pot has a broken part -- little round plastic disc that when you press the little handle on the lid -- it allows the coffee to be poured. I would suspect we would need the whole lid to be replaced!! Can you help?

Rainbow shampooer The soap dispenser on my Rainbow is not dispensing soap when I flip the switch to 'soap' mode. All connections are intact. All plastic hoses are intact. What do you think is going on? The soap bottle connects to a little straw that appears to be free of obstruction, however, it connects into a sealed casing on the hose.


The little "wash/rinse" switch on some of the Aquamate units shuts off the soap flow by kinking the tube inside the housing. If you leave the switch in the rinse position (therefore, kinked) when you're done using it, it may dry in the kinked positi ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Model # 29612992. I was replacing the sweeper bag, when I opened the lip, the plastic arms was pull out of joint and will not close. I removed the 2 screws under the lid to put back it in place but there I can't remove the plastic molding because there are still screws holding somewhere. Are there tabs instead of screws still hold the molding?

I have an old Miele canister vacuum and I do not know how to disassemble the hose to check for a clog. I think it sucked up a nerf ball the size of a ping pong ball. I changed the bag but it did isn't appear to be in the bag. The vacuum powers on but I do not have suction with the hose, and since the hose has hard plastic elbow joints I do not want to pry them apart and break it

Shampoo-er This seems to be a common problem, the shampooer is putting out alot of water and hardly any suds. I read through the posts about the little filter that sometimes gets out of place and I think I found it in the box - is it about 1" diameter hard plastic ring around very fine mesh? If so where exactly does it go? Some posts say in the hose, and others say in the opening of the tank. Or does it go in the place where the hose attaches to the tray? I also found a round sponge in the box o


It goes on the small hole on the tank where the hose attaches to it. The sponge goes in the hole directly under the on/off valve. Here is a link to my online shampooer instructions.\015\012 \015\012 ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But


Well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (mayb ... Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus Vacuum

I would really like to wash the outer bag of my vacuum, but I have a problem. I can remove the outer bag from the vacuum, but the plastic 'frame' that is inside the outer bag is sewn to the bag.

I have a Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister vacum cleaner. It is nine years old and for the past few weeks it has started shutting off for no apparent reason.The symbol for bag change lights up and it cuts off, but even after I have put a new bag in, it still does the same thing. Do you have any suggestions? There is a little button or switch that the top of the bag fits on. Do you think it could be the problem?


Your machine is probably clogged, look through the wands, look in the bottom attachment, to see if there is anything stuck there. You can also drop a marble through the hose itself to see if anything is stuck there as well. To unclog the hose try hol ... Electrolux Harmony Canister Vacuum - EL6985 Vacuum

There is something stuck in the handle of my Miele vacuum. I unscrewed all the screws hoping that I could remove the hard plastic handle from the hose. I was only able to flip up a piece of plastic where the switch is. Should I pull harder to pry the plastic apart? I was afraid I'd break something. Thank You, Chrissy
