Laptop power supply

Do not try to roll the power supply lead to the laptop all the time. This should be free of knots and twists as in the long run there is every possibility that the internal shielded twin core power wire could make a short and cut off the supply.
If there is no supply coming to your laptop please check on the short of the DC line before you buy another charger. You may just have to cut and rejoin to release the short.
Use a multimeter to check the line continuity. It will be best to open the adapter , in some cases you will need to break the sides using a sharp knife/tool so as to cut open the adapter to get access.
Also in case where the capacitor has leaked you can wash off the electrolyte , and replace the capacitor with the same value.

KREEPY-KRAULY Ties itself into a knot while cleaning.


Solution:
We removed 2 portions of hose located at the Krauly end, and attached those at the filter end, then we took the 2 portions located at the filter end, and placed those at the beginning of the Krauly end.
Apparently the problem was that the 2 portions of hosing at the Krauly end had become "twisted" and continually enabled the Krauly to move in the knot tying direction. By replacing these 2 portions at the Krauly end with "un-twisted" portions from the filter end, this ended the twisting cycle.
The Krauly has been running for 48hours straight now without a single knotting episode.
If we see the knot tying direction beginning again, we will repeat these steps, continually replacing with un-twisted portions.
At 1st we thought we needed to purchase some new tubing, but we didn't have to, only needed to move around some hosing.

how to install a new power cord on a tristar vaccume


You must flip the Tri Star upside down to reveal hidden body screws. Generally 2 at back near the wheels and one at front below the cord retainer.
Once removed the body will separate at the bumper. Before removing the motor , note the position of the carbon brushes relative to the body housing. They will be offset allowing the housing to close without striking the motor.
This is a metal vac body, your connects must be clean and should be taped after using twist terminals as a precaution. Your cord will go first to the switch, then power runs from the switch to one side each of the power head and motor, then from the opposite power head and motor lead back to the switch.
You should secure a knot inside the body of the vac as a strain relief so the cord cannot slip out after connecting
