Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

Hi, I have a sanyo SC164R/185R vacuum cleaner and just wanted to know if it has a HEPA filter?

I have a child that has just been diagnosed with a dust mite allergy and apparently a HEPA filter is what we need to help iliminate them.

Generation 3 vacuum. I need to know how to repolace the Kitrby Belt. The video online shows the Sentria, but that has not helped me. The problem I have is the arrows and tightening the belt. Thanks, Gene Paul

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,
