Having problems with your Ridgid 9 Gallon Wet/Dry Shop Vac 96882 Canister Vacuum ?
My ridgid WD06250 shop vac has bad motor brushes and won't run. Do you know if I can buy replacements?
Changing worn brushes is a procedure easily accomplished by even a novice tinkerer:
1) First, unsnap and invert LID over the DRUM ASSEMBLY
2) Remove 4 screws securing the MOTOR COVER to LID: 2 at recessed at handle, 2 around perimeter of PLATE COLLECTOR.
LID should drop freely into DRUM ASSEMBLY
3) Remove 6 screws securing PLATE COLLECTOR to the LID exposing BLOWER WHEEL
4) Invert LID and detach current BLADE CONNECTORS form OFF-ON switch making note of wire guides wire attachments.
5) Secure motor fan by inserting thin wooden dowel between blades being careful NOT TO BEND.
5) Invert LID and remove BLOWER WHEEL nut.
6) Remove the two exposed screws. Lift motor free of LID.
7) Check that the block turns freely with no give at top or bottom bushings. If the brushes are bad they should appear shortened and worn allowing only intermittent or no current flow.
8) Check operability of ON-OFF switch with EC meter. If EC meter unavailable, attach unit to 120 v power supply, and CAREFULLY complete circuit of BLADE CONNECTORS in step 4. Motor should momentarily rev .
9) Brushes are easily removed using flat head screw driver.
Take them to your local Hard Wear Store and match with available stock. If not available, purchase a pair approximating their size, and file or sand to fit being careful not to detach copper wire.
10) Reverse order of above steps.

Noise My Dyson DC08 is making a loud, rough, vibration/noise that seems to be coming from the from the rotating brush housing. I replaced the old belt which was several years old and slipping. When I run the motor with the new belt removed the machine sounds normal. The bearings on the rotating brush seem to be running smoothly when turned by hand both when out of the brush holder and when installed in the machine. I can't find anything rubbing on the belt or rotating brush. I applied a bit o

We are trying to replace the belt on the bissell 89q9 model. We purchased belt 8 and got in onto the brush however the brush doesn't spin anymore. Even trying to turn it by hand doesn't work. One end of the brush has a round end to slide in (clear end piece); however the other has a rectangular end to slide in (black end) so we don't even know how it ever turned. Any suggestions?

My Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.9 brush roller quit working. Upon investigating I found that the idler arm pulley was broken so I managed to replace that. Before putting the cover back on I see the control knob for the roller brush moves a plastic piece left or right to activate/deactivate the brush roller. I don't know where this plastic piece connects. It appears to me that the idler are when raised creates tension on the belt which drives the roller. I'm at a loss trying to figure ou

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.

I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?

The 10 amp thermal fuse on my Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner has blown. Unfortunately the red ink has worn off exactly where the temperature rating is printed so even with a magnifying glass cannot make out the exact replacement fuse to buy. Can anyone shed any light. I know you can buy the complete thermal fuse and wiring from currys partmaster but with delivery would cost about 20 pounds as opposed to 69 pence for the fuse itself. Thanks Mark Roberts
It appears the fuse is not available separately. Standard retail price for the complete unit is £9.00 including VAT. We can supply at that price plus postage and packing at cost, which would probably be no more than £2.50. If this i ... Vacuums

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?
As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
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.

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vac
