Having problems with your Sharper Image Vacuums ?

I own a Sharper Image eVac. It came without a manual. I know how to use the eVac, but I want a manual. Do you have any suggestions? The Sharper Image went out of buisness long ago, so I can't get a manual from them.

I just got a eVac from craigslist today 12-22-09. Fairly new only been run a handfull of times maybe. This came with a manual but theres not much to it. (15 pages) It is supposed to run about 45 min to a charge and its good to let the battery run all the way down before recharging.
\015\012 I got a half hour runtime after a couple shorter runs that didnt hold charge very long or didnt run becuse there was a brush sensor error.
\015\012 I believe these types of batteries are best stored for long periods with some charge left on them, otherwise run it down all the way before charging. Manual says battery temp is a factor in how long it takes to charge, im guessing hotter = longer.
\015\012 Filter is cleanable with water. No detergent. Fan can be air dusted clean too.
\015\012
\015\012These are my findings after 1 day.

\015\012 This one didnt want to go on carpet very long before stopping with a "brush error". The 5 small screws that hold the black plate with the red brush sensor window that is directly above the brush comes out easily and exposes the brush sensor in the middle which is quite fragile but can be air dusted clean.
\015\012 A magnet is good to have on hand, the screws are tiny. With the plate off, I also gently aligned one sensor to be slightly more parallel to the other. This also helped reduce the brush error.
\015\012 Note which side comes out first because it will want to go back in the same way it comes out. If forced in, this is where you can potentially bend the sensors and undo your careful adjustment and cleaning of them, This is the most critical step so take it slow and have plenty of light to see that no sensor gets pushed askew. Its like Operation The Wacky Doctor Game ...in reverse, dont touch the sides of the window to the sensor...bzzzt!

We have inherited a Filter Queen Majestic Triple Crown Model 99C vaccum and have no owners manual stating the year it was purchased and parts available. Our power hose electic wire connection (about 6 inches long) which plugs into the main unit is split in the hose attachment end. The motor sound went instantly quieter and I wondered if this was why when I found this frayed electical wire. It has not been used since this problem was found.

The automatic drain hose is hooked up to the back of the unit, but when the bucket is full, the automatic pump does not work. The automatic pump should come on and empty the bucket, but it does not come on unless the water is siphoned manually through the tube. Then the pump come on and empties the bucket. I have reattached the tube and still had to manually siphon the water through the tube. Any suggestions?


Any automatic pumps operate off a swith that is turned on when the water rises. They normally have some type of ball lift, that will raise the switch when water is high and then drops with the water and shuts the pumps off. It sounds like yours is ... Vacuums

I just bought a Dyson DC 14 All Floors Vacuum and assembled it exactly as the manual said. It sounded normal as I went over hard floors but as soon as I went on carpet, the vacuum was extremely loud. There's no strings or debris in the powerhead... what else would cause this?


There is a knob setting at the footing for carpet and bare floor can help. Otherwise check out a little plastic for suction path from the bottom to the dirt container: it may loose, just snap it in. ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Dust....dust....dust Hello, I recently bought a house with an older Electrolux Central Vac system. I'm unfamiliar with them, so I'm not sure how to deal with this: I cleaned up some mortar dust with it, and noticed not too long after that when I went into the garage, there was a fog of dust. The hose from the unit is venting into the garage. Is this normal? I have since used it for everyday household cleaning and each time I go back to the garage to a cloud of dust.
