Having problems with your Kenmore 23313 Whispertone Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Wispertone 116.29429990 I need help in getting the cover off. The foot retractor pedal for the power cord has screws under it and I am afraid of breaking the it. How do I access the screws under the pedal?


Answers :

The pedal may be tough but the attached pushrod that disengages the power cord reel ratchet may not be, and is stressed by reddevil6's maneuver. I'd prefer to go after the tabs that retain the pedal's forward end. They are part of the rear cover and there are 4; one toward each side and two in the middle. If you pry their bottom ends forward they will disengage from the corresponding feet on the pedal. Work your way from one side to the other, gently prying up from the side as you go. Eventually the pedal will pop off.
That pedal is hard to break, use a large flat blade screw driver, stick it from the bottom and back of the pedal and pry up, it will pop off, watch for the spring, it may fly off.

I just purchased a Sebo Airbelt D canister vacuum. I plugged it in and used it for ten seconds then turned it off, retracted the power cord and now cannot get the power cord out of the machine.

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.

Chain tensioner Is it possible to change the chain tensioner of the Husqvarna 240 to a tool less chain tensioner or at least to the chain tensioner where the adjustment screw is accessed from the side not from the front. The problem is that there is a little plastic part that breaks rendering the chain tensioner useless. I have changed it twice and it keeps breaking. To change it you have to change the whole part that covers the break and chain mechanism.
