I have a Hoover Windtunnel U5472-940. The belt broke so I replaced it. Immediately the next one broke. The belt goes around the brush cylinder and a metal post. I think there is supposed to be something on the metal post to protect the belt but I can't tell from the owner's manual. I also can't find out if this is a part that can be replaced. I've only had the vacuum about a year and a half. Thanks
You may have something in your brush bearing that does not allow the brush to turn easily thus stretching the belt. Chris ... Hoover U6455-900 WindTunnel Vacuum
I have a Filter Queen Majestic canister vacuum cleaner. At the end of the wand, a button to release the attachement not only broke, but also one eyehole on the wand where one nipple on the button falls into. So therefore a new button isn't going to fix the wand because there isn't a hole on one side of the area where the button falls in place for a nipple to secure the button in place. IS THERE A REPLACEMENT PART FOR A NEW SECTION OF THE WAND WHERE THE RELEASE BUTTON IS SECURED IN PLACE THAT I C

Broken Piece In the neck of the hose where it meets the head there's some kind of adjustable piece that goes inside the tip of the hose to hold the two together. It resembles a "C". Cleaning lady broke it and I'm trying to figure out where together another one. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks!

The wheels with the spring broke off and I'm trying to put a new one on but I don't know where the spring goes.
This spring can be very confusing to install. It slides onto the wheel assembly near where the attaching pin is longer ( there are flat protrusions on both sides of the wheel assembly). One end of the spring pushes up on the assembly when it is in pl ... Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue
We have a Singer 626 sewing machine. It's an old mechanical machine with heavy metal parts. The stitch selector was stuck, I removed the top and helped the selector to move. when I had to move the selector again, it was stuck and I pushed too hard and broke a component. I can fix the machine if I had a repair manual. I need to buy a repair manual. How and where can I get one? Thankjs Charlie PS. Im pretty mechanicly inclined and I was able to clean the machine and get it to work after
I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the pins looks like it broke off. There are only three pins remaining. I assume there should be four pins as there are four holes. Is this the problem and is it fixable? The vacuum is from 2002 so I am not sure a replacement part is even available and at what price. Thank you. Susan susan.eng@
Hi Susan, if the pin has broken off you can do one of two things, first, would be to find a local vacuum repair shop and take it there for them to look at. they may be able to look at the hose and fix it for you pretty cheaply. what ... Kenmore Progressive 20912 Bagged Canister Vacuum
Brush not turning. Slots to install won't alow turning. Don't understand. My wife changed the belt, but the brush has a squared off notch on one end and an round notch on the other. I have the honor of trying to fix it, but the design of the squared off notch won't allow rotation.

We are trying to replace the belt on the bissell 89q9 model. We purchased belt 8 and got in onto the brush however the brush doesn't spin anymore. Even trying to turn it by hand doesn't work. One end of the brush has a round end to slide in (clear end piece); however the other has a rectangular end to slide in (black end) so we don't even know how it ever turned. Any suggestions?

Hooked everything up per directions. I plugged it in to the closest electrical outlet and nothing happened. The lights did not light up, the connected wall control and sensors leds do not light up. It appears the unit doesn't have power. The electrical outlet socket is fine as everything else I plug into it works fine. I have tried every other electrical outlet available. The unit won't power on from any outlet, and all of those outlets run other things, like power tools an refrigerators

Filters I have tried to find the filter that goes up inside the vacumm not the one on the front but when you take the disposal thing out the one that is up inside that, where do I find one? mine does not have one and everything clogs up in there.

It works well until it bumbs a wall. When it backs up it will not go forward again. I took it apart and noticed a cable is lose. I dont know where this cable hooks up to. One end is on a plastic disc on the end of the motor. The other end looks to have been pulled lose from somewhere. Its only about an inch and half long.

One of my Levolor double-honeycomb blinds is no longer level (one side goes up faster than the other). Another of my blinds (same brand, model) seems to have broken, with one side no longer rising. Both blinds are about 9 years old. Is there any way to fix them? Or, does it make more economic sense to replace them? Thank you!

I have a Eureka 4870GZ. It turns on, but the brush roller doesn't move. The belt looks fine. I do have an extra belt and would try replacing the old belt, but I can't get the old one off the motor shaft or the new one on. I called Eureka customer service. The lady said there's supposed to be a small space between the motor shaft and the outside edge of the vacuum where I can slip the old belt off and the new one on. I don't see it. It looks like the motor shaft goes into a recessed place in the

I have a Flotec shallow well FP4122-08. A burglar stood on the pump this summer to gain access to my goats building (window). There's a small black tube that came off at both ends. When I put the tube back on, it shoots right back off as soon as the pump is plugged in. I don't know the name of the part (tube) to order a new one, and I don't know if it just plugs onto the fittings of both ends, or goes into the pump at the end with the round fitting on it.
Warning Light What does the light mean on the canister that has two prongs on one end and one on the other. The vacuum works fine but the light is on. I changed the bag and filter.
Check the hose and wands for a clog. Usually that light means a full bag, but a clog or restriction will also cause it to come on. ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
The TechDrive Pedal on my Kirby G6 fell out of the back of my vacuum cleaner. I removed the screws from the metal plate one the bottom to try to see if something had come a loose. Can you send me a diagram so I can put it back together or tell me where I can get a service manual. The only part I am having trouble with is the metal piece inside that engages the power drive. Thank you.

Kenmore 21875 One day it's working fine. Next day, it won't turn on. When I attach the hose to another vacuum cleaner, it runs. Is there a reset button on the canister? Could it be the receptacle is bad? My Kenmore Progressive won't turn on today either -but was fine last week. I cleaned the filters checked for blocked air, tried a different outlet and no luck. I'll check the pins on the connections and see if one of them is not matching up or appears worn.
Give the prongs a wiggle and see if there is any play in them.Might just be a plug end. ... Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum
