Having problems with your Hayden Industries SuperVac 6000 Central System Vacuum ?

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that. I think this happened once before and maybe they replaced a circuit board(?). We took it to a local repairman this time and he says he can fix it temporarily with a new cartridge, but that he won't promise it won't happen again soon.....


Answers :

The hose has fuseable link inside, generally a 3-7 amp. It is at the wall end underneath the hose cuff. Easy to replace as it crimps in line. If you have a meter you can also test the detachable hose to wall cord for continuity, then check the hose to handle as well.
You can also detach the hose to wall cord from the hose, and plug your power head directly into that cord,, then into the wall thereby eliminating the hose itself.
Hayden makes a serviceable hose. If damaged or the fuse blown it can be serviced by a good tech. If the fuse is blown you need to clean and inspect the power head as this may be the cause

I am trying to replace the power cord for my 82 year old father-in-law's Oreck XL 2600HH. He already took it apart. I need to know where the semi U shaped spring steel piece is supposed to go inside the Helping Hand Handle? Any drawings or schematics available? Thank you for your time. Arthur

I have no power on a brand new Electrolux Oxygen canister vacuum. This is the second time. After the first time, I took it back to Sears where I bought the vacuum and they gave me a brand new vacuum.

Power nozzle of my S3670 does not work (vacuum itself does work), the headlight bulb in the nozzle is broken. This happened in the past several times - we would bring the vacuum to service center - I don't know what they did other than replacing the bulb. I decided to go to ACE and buy replacement bulb myself, replaced the one in the nozzle - this did not fix the problem. I don't see any fuzes or anything in the nozzle.

Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.

I have an Eureka Express canister vacuum - I believe it's model 8284 - that just stopped working. Plug it in, turn it on, and absolutely nothing happens. I took it to the local sew and vac place and they say it's a circuit board that is no longer available. I've looked at all the parts lists and diagrams for that vacuum and I would swear there isn't a circuit board there. (I wouldn't have even thought that in 1989 they would have used circuits.) In any case, I absolutely love this machine a

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming. I replaced the motor,which didn't fix it. Is the reset switch next on my list? T

Faithful Sebo X1 upright, about 12 years old, stopped working today. I replaced old with new dust bag, checked all dust paths were clear, checked main brush was clear/clean, and drive spindle rotated OK with fingers.

My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?

SubBrand name 'Exmork', 5 Kw Sine wave inverter Intermittently, breaks into a spurious mode which causes it to draw excessive current while the output waveform becomes seriously corrupted with severe transient spikes close to the crossover point.

The fault has precipitated failures in the Power-board module in two units
