Having problems with your GE Vacuums ?

I've never had to change a CFL bulb like the GE 35972 in my kitchen ceiling fixture. It looks like a squared off pretzel with the socket in the middle and facing up to the ceiling. It's been in there for years -- this is a rental -- and because it's so close to the ceiling, I can't tell where to pull the pins from the socket apart without breaking it. Any instructions or suggestions? Also, my Home Depot doesn't sell it; will the pins match a different CFL, like maybe a circular one?


Answers :

CFL bulbs are held in place by a friction fit, but it is a very tight fit. Grasp the CFL by the sqaure plastic base and pull firmly away from the socket. You may have to wiggle it a little, but don't try to pull it out by the globe because they are very fragile and break easily. I would imagine the pins would be interchangeable with some other model, depending on the number of tubes and the number of pins. Just take your bulb with you to compare. If you have any specialty electrical supply houses in your town, that would be a great place to look. I'm giving you a link where you can order them if all else fails, but CFLs have become pretty common, so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding one.

I have a Miele s251i vacuum that was working just fine until I umplugged it (while running) and re-plugged it in at a closer socket. When I replugged it, it started for a second and then stopped. Will not start now whether we use the on/off switch or not...suggestions? Would also like to know how to disassemble the unit so I could check out the wiring with a multitester..thanks


I just had exactly the same problem. Opened the vac, checked the circuit\012 next to the motor and it can be clearly seen that the Triac burned thru\012 the PCB. Will replace it and check again. Vac bought long ago, works \012extremely well. ... Miele Vacuums

I'm looking for instructions for. The Kenmore Seal-n-Save Deluxe. It is model 69019. The machine is in excellent (looks never used condition and I have boxes of the bags.) I just can't find the instruction book and my attempts to use it don't work. So my question is simply where can I find the instructions or instruction book. I have food I'd like to freeze. Thanks in advance.

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

Light bulb will not screw all the way into the ceiling fan socket. It is a new socket and has not been damaged. Is there any lubricant that I might use to solve this issue? What other advise can you give me other than replacing the socket?


An auto store will have dielectric grease. Put a little on the threads of your new bulb and it will be easier to remove in the future, too.\012Gary ... Vacuums

I bought a Hampton Bay Hawkins 44 " ceiling fan (117 391) and would like a remote that I can control the speeds with not just the on and off. I have a pull chain for the speeds but would like to use a remote instead. Is this possible? I have a Hampton Bay Redington IV and love the remote. I'm looking for something like that.

So, I was sewing along and heard a thump...kind of sounded like a louder version of what you hear when the needle hits a pin...but I wasn't using pins. This, of course, lead to the thread jamming so I had to clear that. When rethreading I pulled out the bobbin case to make sure it was seated correctly and found a kind of "v" shaped piece of wire (about the width of a paper clip I guess) sitting loose under the bobbin case. I took it out and threw it away. Still can't pull up the bobbin threa


That part was the hook end of the spring that was supposed to put tension on the bobbin - it will have to be replaced. This is a special flat spring that unfortunately only a repair shop of a dealer has it - you will have to take your machine to one. ... Vacuums

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci


Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
