Having problems with your Tristar SB Steam Buggy Vacuum ?

Can you disperse a water and vinegar mixture with the steam buggy, without causing damage to any part of the unit? can you disperse a water and bleach mixture with the steam buggy, without causing damage to any part of the unit?


Answers :

If you do this the vinegar will likely disperse hard water scale as it cleans the inside of the element. While it shouldn't stain anything it will likely cause sputtering as it breaks down the scale. If your goal is to clean and disinfect a surface that is vinegar friendly, I would consider taking the extra step of spraying the surface with a spray bottle with the vinegar. Bleach in steam might puff back at you in a cloud and burn your eyes and skin so be VERY cautious on the bleach.

My Triton T80 SI shower is leaking from where the outlet pipe assy joins to the heater can assembly. when I checked where the two join together I see that there is a rubber O ring fitting into a recess in the heater can assy. The screws which hold the two parts together does not force a compression between the two parts causing it to leak. Is there another modified unit or am I stuck with what Ive got and should I replace the O ring or the shower.

We have a beam Serenity plus home vacuum system and there is no longer sucks.

I have a Dyson DC-17 and the top of the cyclone has hair and other debris jammed in the ports. It has 6 six screws holding the parts together and I can only get access to 4 of the screws.

I was trying to repair my wife's kitchenaid mixer and took part of it apart, including the back part, where the electrical connections are. The original problem was the plastic gear was damaged -- I finally had the good sense to find the solution for that problem on the internet and replaced the damaged part. But now the mixer just won't turn on. I don't think I damaged anything in the electrical section, but I suspect I either blew a fuse or somehow disconnected something.

I have a dyson dc07 with a malfuncitoning clutch diagnosed here on fixya. I've replaced the clutch and the grinding noise when the clutch is engaged for carpet and non rotating brush problem presists. This is after replacement of the clutch with a new part.

For an expensive vacuum I'm not that impressed with it at this point.

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:(
