Having problems with your Electrolux Vacuums ?
Have Electrolux 1590 whole house vac, and can't see how to get brushes out. Leads so short, and don't want to break them trying to free brushes.
Do they slide out of plastic housing? My eyes not real good, but it looks like the leads are part of a brass sleeve that slides into the plastic housing. It also looks like the plastic housing may be a snap lock type, but I don't see how to open it.

I have Optima, 12amp Eureka vacuum, Model 431, AXZ type and the extension hose for cleaning corners and edges --the plastic part that the attachments fit into has a piece broken off and tools don;t fit anymore. It looks like the hose attachment can be replaced--can it be and if so--where can I get a new hose attachment. It seems it is cheaply made of plastic and really shouldn't have broken a piece off.

I have an old Progressive vacuum cleaner that says "Hepa Filter" and "Whisper Belt". Not sure what the model # is. The problem is that the vacuum part itself (the part that touches the floor and rolls over) has ejected its filter that we can see through the little window- it just came out under the rollers under the device... we cannot see how to re-insert this piece of filter which looks like a kind of round, flat grey foam/fabric and clearly goes inside- (top of the part that touches the flo

I can see the height adjuster under my Bissell pet hair eraser vacuum, but it doesn't adjust. The parts don't look like they're touching. It's been iffy since I took it out of the box. Now it doesn't adjust at all. Used only five times. Looks like I should be able to fix it myself. No local repair available. Could you help please?

Belt type Ok, thank you for the help! I did have the top off, but did not know the taking the motor loose trick, thank you for that! Now I have a couple of more questions, and thank you so much for all of the help! I got a belt from sears, & the sales guy sold me an off brand belt. It looks just like the belt that broke, although do you have to force the motor back down into place? I think it may be the wrong belt?

My Dyson vacuum works fine for cleaning the rug but the hose doesnt get any suction at all. I removed the hose and all the parts around it that I could and dont see any clogs or broken pieces. I lost my manual so I dont know if this is addressed, or if there is a switch Im not flipping. Gave it a thorough look but found nothing.

Clogged vacuum Rather stupidly, my boyfriend 1) were vacuuming without a bag and 2) vacuumed up a big piece of cotton from a sofa cushion. And now it's making a horrible noise and I see it vibrating where the tube connects to the machine. When you look inside there's a white thing sticking out but it looks like it's part of the vacuum. If it's a clog, how do you fix it? I tried unscrewing the tray the bag sits in but it won't budge.
You can start by taking off the bottom plate or top cover, which ever comes off, that is where the inlet starts going in and hopefully the clog is there. Could be in the hose also. But without the complete model number I can't look it up to see a p ... Kenmore 31912 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Series G Kirby Model G7D. The other day when I was vacuuming all of a sudden the TechDrive (Power Drive Assist N/D) pedal fell off. I see the hole that it goes into but when I put it in it's loose and falls out and doesn't control the power drive anymore. When I shook the vacuum I heard something rattling around inside the vacuum head. So I unscrewed the bottom and looked inside and found a small metal part labeled K3 on one side and T on the other side. It looks like it would fit

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

The cantister on my DC04 no longer stays secure when in position. It does not snap and lock into place as before. I found a small plastic tab about 1/4 inch deep and less than an inch wide on the floor. Looks like it has broken off the lockin mechanism any suggestions?

I have a Bissell Model 8905 Carpet Cleaner. I was going to replace the belts because the pump belt broke, but when I turned the machine over, a small piece fell out. It looks like a tensioner arm because it has a small round part at each end on opposite sides of an arm that has an offset or "dogleg" in it. I am looking for an exploded parts diagram to determine what the part is and where it came from.

Mystery part Bissell 1699-P. I removed the top cover and a part came tumbling out (from the rear of the machine - towards the handle area). I have no idea were this part belongs. I have a schematic of the cleaner but I can not locate the part on it. I tried to copy and paste a picture of the part but that isn't working so I will attempt to discribe the part: There is nothing stampted on the part that I can see.

I see it is part # 12 on the drawing but that piece on my iron (the bit with the little circles on it where it says, " anti calc plus') seems to be a flat piece of integrated plastic with no give or slide to it. .I cannot see how I'd possibly remove it.

Kenmore Model 116 28014700 intuition vacuum cleaner. Latch for hose connection to cannister broke. I have the new part. How do I remove the hose from the broken part and replace it on the new part? I have already purchaed the new part p/n KC92PDDUZV06 for this, bt can't figure out how to get the old part off. It looks like you must destroy old part in order to get it off.
On my Eureka Model 1759A (from mid-1980s), the plastic catch that holds the two parts of the metal body together has broken. I would like to replace the part of the catch that attaches to the top (the part with the lip on it), but I can't find the part online ... or even a drawing. Where can I get this part ? ? ? HELP ! ! !
This latch is riveted to the body. If you are lucky you may find an old Eureka warranty/ repair center with one on the shelf, or another canister for parts. That will be your best hope. ... Vacuums
The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?

My husband sucked up part of a rug. The belt didn't shut off like I thought it was supposed to. Now there is a funny loud hum when the brush is running. There are also some fuzzy disc-like things around the brush that look like they're unraveling. Thoughts???
See if you can take the brush assembly off. There should be a plate and 2 screws. One on each side. You can lift out the brush and get all of the strings and such off of the roller brush.
