When I tried to open the clear bin to empty it, the bottom did not drop open and now I can't push the cyclone down. What do I need to do to fix this?


I can't be specific without knowing your model but the crud and gunk that collects inside the dirt bin can restrict the door from opening and closing properly. If the door isnt closed properly the dirt bin may not fit back into the vacuum.

My Dyson Absolute does not restart...I emptied a full cannister...cleaned the filter etc...but pushing the power button nothing happens...What should I do next?...Thanks gil


I would make sure that there is no micro switch that is stuck, and also that the canister is seated properly.


Assuming it was working before and that it is still plugged in, that is all I can think of.

Hoover dm6200 blowing air


check your suction hose again, follow it to where it goes into the body of the machine. I assume this will be near where the bagless cannister is. Remove the bagless cannister and look up inside to where the attachment hose should come into the cannister. I believe you are still blocked up there. using a butter knife or something along those lines should free up the blockage.
Also, if that is all clear, try re-adjusting the dirt cannister as it may not be on properly to create your suction flow through the hose.
Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

I can't get the bottom of the canister to open in order to empty the disrecarded material.


Remove the cannister from the vacuum. The bottom lid should release if you depress the red button at the top of the cannister, if this does not release the bottom lid, you will have to depress the red button while pulling the lid open. Either the release mechanism need repair or there is something jamming the bottom lid.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

How do I open the dirt cannister on a dyson animal (purple) so I can empty the dirt out?


This is fairly easy. Click on the button at the top of the hand above the cannister. It's a purple button and the handle faces the front and says Dyson on it. This separate the cannister from the body.

Next, hold the now full cannister above a trash can and click on the red button which was below the purple button (but hidden when it was attached).

Replace power switch - Electrolux Epic series 6500


well, i post an answer in the wrong field, and i can't find it, so i will type one more time.
slide two vinyl side pieces off, and remove top halves. remove two screws from the switch, and remove it from top halve. between switch and outside button is a plastic rocker, which is broken. you will find two broken pieces, one spring for the rocker piece, and one small plastic rod, which goes inside of the spring for support. i do not know if part is available, but you can for quick fix like me, turn the switch on by the hand, assemble unit, and plug in, and plug out from the wall. whay? i dont have electrolux store close by.

My central kenmore vacuum wont suction


Hello hdd85,
I think you answered your own question when you verified that all the vacuum outlets have vacuum on them and then after you hook up tyhe vac hose, you fail to get vacuum at the other end. I would say that based on your problem description, you have an obstruction in the hose. You may have afriend with an air compressor that you can try forcing air in one end to free up the clog but if that doesn't work, do you know anyone with a wet/dry utility vac that you can try using the vacuum or exaust side to free the hose up ? Lastly, if you know an electrician, they normally have 'snakes' used to fish wires thru wall cavities... If careful, that might get the clog out.. Hope that gives you soem ideas on how to resolve,,,,
Regards,
Rick

Belts keep breaking


Check the brush roll ends to see if they have melted or frozen. They should turn freely, part #361869-1. Make sure the belt isn't being pinched somewhere.
