I have a Series G Kirby Model G7D. The other day when I was vacuuming all of a sudden the TechDrive (Power Drive Assist N/D) pedal fell off. I see the hole that it goes into but when I put it in it's loose and falls out and doesn't control the power drive anymore. When I shook the vacuum I heard something rattling around inside the vacuum head. So I unscrewed the bottom and looked inside and found a small metal part labeled K3 on one side and T on the other side. It looks like it would fit

Dear Sir or Madam, I own a black 23 x 47 x 7 mm Rowenta lighter. It has a screw on bottom that I cannot remove. What is it hiding ? Is this lighter refillable ? Is there a flint to replace ?. I've found on your site the following : "By jbbiii on Apr 06, 2009 Father died and left me a Rowenta lighter purchased in Stutgart in 1952. It has a screw on bottom with spring to replace the flint, but I cannot figure out how to open the bottom to replace the cotton wadding which I can see through the hole


Hello \015\012The flint should be near the striker.Or the thumb roller,usually below it.\015\012As old as it is you may not see it beacause its worn down.\015\012\015\012Maybe taking it to an antique store or a smoke shop woul ... Vacuums

Our unit is 7024A Electrolux Oxygen 3 - it seems to work great but suddenly, the head or 'power brush' or whatever it is called - has died. I checked by removing the hose and plugging it directly into the body, but it is still dead. Without that motorized head working, the vacuum is useless. Is it worth replacing? The unit is only about 1 year old and has seen light use only. Very frustrating, since it was the most expensive unit in the store:(

I have a Honeywell HF810 fan. I am trying to clean it. I removed the phillips head screws, but their are two odd screws that require a special tool to remove them . I also have to go through the plastic shaft, so I need a special type of screwdriver and a special type of head. Thanks for the challenge!!

ShopVac pump The waterhose connection is up high. The only way to get the water up to the level of the hose is to continually hold down the on button due to the automatic shut off after it fills to a certain level. On the bottom of the filter there is a hole. I am thinking there should be a small hose of some sort to put into that hole that would then lead up to the level of the water hose. Concept makes sense to me. But in the meantime, good old duct tape seems to have done the trick. Not exact

I have a Wertheim 4808 Barrel vacuum cleaner that has suddenly stopped working. I believe that there is a problem with the electrical cord connection inside. I have tried unsuccessfully to open the compartment that leads to that area. One side unscrewed with a phillips head screwdriver but the other side seems to have a different type of fixing screw that I am unable to undo. It is awkward to get at and in a deep slot and the head of the fixing screw? is not visible.

My Bissel proheat carpet cleaner wont spray out of the bottom or the spray handle. I took of the scrub brushes and off and cleaned out the bottom of the machine including popping out the two spray heads to make sure they were not clogged. Put it back together. Still no spray! I also did the turn off, remove fluid containers, replace, turn on for one minute to prime the pump, and still so spray...does this mean my pump is not working?

Automatic pump I understand the concept. What is wierd is the place to hook up the waterhose is up high and on the outside of the Shopvac itself. Is there another spot to actually hook up the hose inside the shopvac? I can't locate my manual. I do see a hole in the bottom of the filter but there is not an actual place to screw something in there? Im I just being stupid?


Well that does sound strange but in theory if you hook up the water hose even up high when the water fills the reservoir it should run out while your vacuuming give it a shot and when you wet vac yo ... Shop Vac 584-06-00 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

Doesn't work Our home was built and finished in August 07.  The central vac doesn't work.  There is supposed to be a slot that opens in the kitchen where you sweep the dust and it sucks it up.  Also, the mounted unit on the garage wall has a hose that goes up into the house but there is a hole open at the bottom of the unit.  Where can I get someone to help us?  Or, is there an installation manual I can download to see if the builder did it properly.  He stole our solar heater for our pool and s

I also have a Hoover upright and I need to replace the electrical cord. I have dimantled the back, where the tools are stored, and the hose. I still cannot find the screws or whatever, to get to the area behind the cord, so I can replace it. I think I will have to take off the bottom too. Has anyone out there tried to do this? It seems crazy. This machine works great so I hope I can also put it back together. Thanks for the help.


Since I do not know your specific model I can only supply you with general instructions. Be aware that most of the time you only need to gain access to the on/off switch to replace the power cord. Also Make sure that you are replacing the existing co ... Vacuums
