Having problems with your Tristar Vacuums ?

What brand of vacuum has a compatible powerhead for a tristar?

\015 I need a new powerhead for my tristar vacuum (1985). The ball bearings in the motor are bad. It costs almost as much to repair it as to buy a new powerhead. What brand should I get? I don't think I need to buy a tristar turbo brush. I bought a compatible powerhead about 5 years ago but can't remember what brand.\015

I have a shark vacuum model EP754C with a Euro-Pro powerhead. The vacuum is working, but the powerhead isn't getting power. I checked the powerhead plugged into a different vacuum and it seems okay. I live in London ON Canada...do you have a service depot or service center here?

I have no power on a brand new Electrolux Oxygen canister vacuum. This is the second time. After the first time, I took it back to Sears where I bought the vacuum and they gave me a brand new vacuum. This is the second time it's happened, basically on both units after the time that i brought them home.

I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum? The vacuum does not appear to be damage

Hoover U5344-950 My Hoover vacuum is a nightmare! I have had nothing but problems with it since day 1. The powerhead stops working if you try to lower the handle to vacuum. I took it in to be serviced and was told it sat on the shelf for too long in the store and it warped the belt...so it was replaced. Got it home, it worked the first time I tried it, then went right back to no powerhead working and as a bonus it is giving off a nasty smell like it is going to blow up! It now gets really hot to

You need to check your voltage coming out of your hose and wand, be sure that the handle switch is in the on position. Voltage should be +/-120V. If you have voltage there then you have a power head issue. The replacement would be the ... Miele Vacuums

My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!

I have a tank style vacuum. When I vacuum with the power head it dims and slows down when I push the power head back and forth, but it powers back up louder when I stop pushing it If i remove the powerhead from the hose the vacuum works fine.


Most likely the belt. Thats the cheapest so try it first ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

I have a Filter Queen Majestic 360 and am having problems with the powerhead. There is a loud rattling noise in the powerhead, especially when I vacuum thicker carpet. I have replaced the motor, roller brush, and belt, but the rattling remains. It sounds like it is coming from the roller brush area,and when I turn the powerhead over, it rolls free and sounds fine. Any thoughts?


Hi there, as per your information i guess its a problem of power transformer. He can't supply the proper power in the motor & thats why the noise will come from the transformer. Thanks & waiting for your feedback. ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

Loud noise I have a brand new Dyson and it is great on all my floors except one of my area rugs when it starts making this really loud vibrating noise. I am not sure why - nothing is stuck in the roller or vacuum and it doesn't make it on any of my other rugs. Also it is really hard to push whereas all the other floors it just glides. I don't want to return it but I also don't want to hear this sound every time I vacuum.


This is the clutch as it jams up in the brush. Usually happens with rugs that are not secured to the floor. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I replaced the powerhead drive belt. Now (2 times) while vacuuming the powerhead motor appears to run backwards. Because the metal pully which has left hand threads on it will backout / unscrew it self. Prior to this belt rerplacement it functioned properly. Thank You Bob


Look at your power head motor. If you see a fiberglass looking sleeve on the shaft where the belt attaches to it, you need to remove that. You can slip it off, chip it off, or break it off piece by piece. You can usually use pliers and break it into ... Rainbow 75th Anniversary Canister Vacuum

Oreck Belts Why do they smell badly and almost always break when being used for an extended period? I see Mr. Oreck in print, television and internet ads -- and he certainly carries himself as a credible person; a man you want to believe....But reading his biblliography -- he started his career (in this area as I know it) as a "Vacuum Cleaner Salesperson" for Whirlpool. Many vacuums brands - particularly those that are noit sold directly by retailers (Oreck, Kirby and others) use the commission-


Unfortunately this is a very common problem on the Oreck XL uprights. As you you noticed, there is even an extra belt storage on the machine itself, on the bottom plate. When a vacuum cleaner has to put an extra belt on the machine ... Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum

When I was vacuuming this morning it smelled like burnt oil or something. The powerhead was not working when I checked. Can I get a new powerhead or is there another solution?


It sure sounds like your belt is burned off. You need to have it looked at before replacing the unit that's for sure. If the sweeper assy. under the vac is not turning than the belt is broken. Go to GE 106766 belt on the web and you sould be able to ... GE 106766 Bagged Canister Vacuum

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,

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

Hover Elite Rewind I've only had this vacuum a few months and I really liked it until now. There is almost no suction from anywhere in the vacuum, and I've cleaned all the filters and rollers with my shop vac and made sure that everything was assembled correctly. It used to be really quiet now it is quite loud and it keeps over heating, and shutting off. At this point I have no idea what could cause this problem, the machine is nearly brand new and I can't afford a new one at this point.
