Question about Sanyo Vacuums

1 Answer

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction. Fluff gets stuck in the hose and has to be manually removed. Suction power is very poor. I have washed the filter to remove the dust with no difference. Who do I contact in Brisbane to service or assess the problem further.

This type of vacuum is not designed to vacuum up sheetrock
dust or pieces of sheetrock. The dust from sheetrock is so fine it will clog the vacuum bag, filters and possible the motor

So change the bag, use an air hose to blow out the motor area and
the hoses make sure that air hose has in line filter to catch moisture

SOURCE: Suction

Might be the hepa filter needs cleaning? This is located in the housing on the side of the cleaner at the bottom (see your manual to find it). It is a big spongy ring which Dyson say you should remove once a month and wash in warm water. Dry off and replace in cleaner when completely dry. I've found this works and the suction is like that of a new machine!

SOURCE: NO SUCTION

I fixed the very same problem about 15 minutes back. Mine is a 6660-900 but I believe all Hoover windtunnel uprights probably have the same basic design with minor differences. It has nothing to do with the belts.

When the vacuum is used with the hose, you are using it in the vertical locked position. When using on carpet, you step on a release tab/lever on the left corner of the deck. When you do this, a plastic gate opens diverting the vacuum (air flow) from the hose to the deck near the rolling brush area. When this gate gets stuck for some reason, it doesn't open even when you release the tab/lever. What I had to do was to open the cover over the brush roller (4 screws) near the front of the deck. Then when I wiped the bottom portion of the deck under where the hose is connected to the deck, I realised that the plastic there is clear plastic (it was covered with lot of dust before I wiped it). On the side where the hose connects to the deck, right under it is a tubular channel connecting to the brush roller area. Through the clear plastic of this channel, you will see a plastic disk blocking the channel opening. With the power disconnected, release the level for carpet cleaning (so that the deck can move relative to the handle). Now push with a finger on the plastic disk to make it go in and up. In my case some thread like material was caught between the disk edge and the channel/tube making it impossible to open with just the air pressure. After I removed the obstruction, the gate disk started moving freely when the vacuum was set for carpet cleaning. I put everything back together abd tested. Now it works beutifully.

If your model is different, you may find some minor differences but there has to be a vacuum diverter for the two positions. Just make sure it directs the vacuum where it is supposed to go.

My Dyson D14 was used by electricians to clean up plaster dust when chasing out wiring! It has not worked properly since. My husband has twice taken it apart and cleaned filters carefully drying all


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Our machines are designed and tested for standard domestic use only, and we do advise against using them to clean up large quantities of fine powders, such as plaster dust.

It's possible that if the plaster dust has damaged the filter, replacing this will improve performance. However, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly before ordering a replacement - our experts will take you through some quick troubleshooting checks just to make sure that a new filter will resolve the issue.

You can reach our freephone customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US). Please have your machine to hand when you call.

Best wishes,

Jack

Eureka Rally 2 had great suction the first two times I used it and now faint. No blockage and new bag and clean filter. What coud it be?


The dust bag holder is an important part of this vacuum. Make sure the bag is installed into the holder sliding bag collar into slots to secure.
Make sure the bag is tucked into cleaner. or the bag cover will not latch securely.
Also, the motor and exhaust filters should be cleaned at each bag replacement.
REPLACING THE FILTERS
Filters should be cleaned or replaced when they become visibly soiled or suction power is reduced. Always operate the cleaner with the filters installed to avoid motor damage. The dust bag must be changed and the filters cleaned or replaced if the window of the Clean Filter Indicator changes into red when the cleaner is operating at maximum power and the nozzle is raised from the floor.

Dyson dc11 makes a groaning sound and no suction


It is more than likely that you've caused blockage in your turbines. Plaster dust is very very fine and will have passed through your filter quite easily. It's also more than likely that the plaster dust has affected your motor.

If you turn it on and you hear popping, then motor is more than likely deceased. If you hear something like a valve releasing when you turn the machine off then there may be a blockage.

Probably best to refer to your local Dyson via www.dyson.com

Where do I find replacement parts to my SC-505?
Posted by deh127 on Jul 07, 2008
My dog ate thought the hose coming right from the steamer. I need to get a new hose and I never got the attachment that cleans the floor where can I get that? I only got the hose and then attachments that would clean a grill.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best place to get the added attachments for the Euro-Pro Shark SC-505 Handheld Steam Vacuum is to contact the Shark / Fantom factory manufacturer of which I will list below and this is a specialty vacuum and most local vacuum cleaner dealers do not have the parts but can order them for you if they are connected with Shark / Fantom. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Eureka upright Capture problem


Hi
Check the duster wand on this model and make sure that it is clean. Sometimes dust will fall off it if it hasnt been cleaned properly. Even if the hose has been checked there could be an inspection part of the cleaner (where the dirt enters the bagless bin) which hasn't been cleaned out. If this fails, then it could be somewhere else on the machine which is leaking dirt. Check the soleplate - I believe with this model it is front hood which pops off via 2 - 4 philips screw heads made viewable on the front and just below the wand/hose mount release on the left hand side if looking at the vacuum from the front. Check that the main dirt channel at the front isn't clogged. This is one way of dealing with escaping dirt.

Could the debris from plaster sanding cause my rainbow series D4C vacuum not to work? If so how is the best way to clean it?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Rainbow D4C will still work but not @ the highest efficiency rating – the suction will be reduced because the sheetrock dust gets into the motor and the fan blade(s) Quan 3 and would need a professional cleaning 1st or 2nd. Replacement of the motor; if it is too serious and or too expensive. It’s a good vacuum back it is suggested that people use a good Shop Vac for the sheetrock dust removal. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or you can try to repair and change out the fans, clean out the carbon brush area and cleanup the armature. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
