Having problems with your Philips Vacuums ?

We need to replace the Fan Blades on our Phillips Fan as they heve got very fragile and they are breaking up!

Answers :

Yes-- This is the big disadvantage of this type of Vacuum--
Stones and sand wear heavily on that impeller turning a very high rate of speed.

This can be a tricky job----- depending on how long this fan has been on the motor shaft-- and if water has been passed thru this joint--
-- It will take a complete disassembly of the power section of this vacuum--
(I have seen a few times, when the impeller could be just hit a solid blow in the 'un-tightening direction, and the impeller spun right off- -- Very god, if you can get that response! :-) )

Most of the time one has to tear the motor apart, and get a solid grip on the armature (Clamping it firmly-- but gently in a vise -- and then beating on the impeller to remove it.

Naturally-- you would need to have the correct impeller ready to spin right back on the shaft-- for the old impeller will be ruined in removal. Be sure to put some 'never-seize' on the thread, to make it easier to remove NEXT time!

How old is the machine?
Ever consider trading it in on a new type of Vacuum?

I need to purchase new blades for our 52" Jericho IV ceiling fan, Model 166315. I went to home depot in Harrisville, UT and they said that we would have to contact you and they didn't have ANY replacement fan blades in stock.

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther
