Royal parts are not too hard to come by. They will pretty much sell them to anybody, but you will probably have to call up a local independent dealer (someone with access to schematics) with your model number and have them look up the parts and order them in for you.

Master craft carpet cleaner needs repair Who can handle this

Dear Mirek,
I am thinking you may need to repair this yourself, or have someone do it for you.
Look and see how the other wheel on the other side its held in place. You may need to fashion a clamp device to hold that wheel in, as it may be a plastic part that has broken.
A replacement is very likely not available.
Try online, type your make and model in to your search engine and see if a dealer can help you.
God bless your efforts.

A soleplate wheel (Dyson Soleplate Wheel #DY-914892-01) fell off, and I don't know where to reattach it or if I need a new part (axle?).

Hi Dale,

This will indeed need an axel and these are typical made available together with a wheel from Dyson directly.

If your machine is under guarantee Dyson will likely replace the entire soleplate for you (if that is where it has fallen from).

Please contact the Dyson helpline on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

I hope this is useful.

Kind regards,

The wheels fell off.

The wheels are held to the axles with small c-clips. Perhaps these have come loose. If the wheel is still attached to part of the axle. The axle has broken and will need replacement.

My rear wheels keep poppping off. I've hammered and glued, but they won't stay on. Do I need new wheels or a new axle assembly?


You may need to just purchase the the little c-clips that hold the wheels onto the axle. Kirby Vacuums actually have a hub cap on their rear wheels that can be removed to access the axle end with the c-clip. If you take a flat head screwdriver, and pry off the plastic part of the wheel off of the rubber part, you should be able to see the end of the axle. There should be a little tiny c-clip at the end of the axle that holds the rear wheel in place. Is that clip there on both sides?

If yes, then you may need to replace the entire axle assembly. If they are missing these clips are available for purchase through many online websites including our own,

If this repair didn't fix your Kirby, please contact me, I'm happy to try and diagnosis this further with you. If it did help, please rate the repair as helpful, thank you.

Floor tool wheel will not revolve on dyson dc08 origin vacuum - seems to be jammed. How do I disassemble the unit to fix the problem with the wheel. Everything seems to be clicked in. I do not want to...


The wheels on the floor tool get junked up with hair pretty quickly, at least they did for our Dyson. The metal peg that holds them in has grooved teeth to prevent it coming out easily, but it will come out if you get a claw hammer and give it a good yank. I've just done this for ours, and it was clogged up bad.

This claw hammer pic is indicative only, to actually get it off, I had a foot on the main assembly, and both hands on the handle of the hammer, the peg is stuck quite strongly.


When you get the wheel out, it will probably look like this. (this is actually a bit cleaner than it may be, as I'd already removed as much hair as humanly possible with a knife before disassembly) Once you have the wheel out, remove the peg (can just tap it out with a hammer, you may need a punch to get it all the way out. Not having a punch, I used the handle of a drill chuck, but a screwdriver would also work :) )


Give it a wipe clean, the wheel should then rotate freely on the peg. Then put the wheel back on, and drive the peg in. I've left about a millimetre of play in the wheel so as not to have it stick to the side, and hence not work again. Also, test it in both carpet and wood floor mode before putting away tools, I remember changing modes and finding that all of a sudden the wheels were sticking out an extra few millimetres.

Hope that helps

Oh, and never mind the first picture showing the entire head assembly removed, it doesn't have to be. I actually removed it all before realizing that the wheels would just come off with a hammer.

I have a Sebo x1. It will not pick up from the head.

If the wheel isn't moving when the upright handle is swung down normally then the hydrallic action will be broken. The wheel only adjusts to the carpet when the handle is swung down and the wheel goes to the highest position. HOWEVER if you have large pile / thick carpeting then the X1 will struggle to pick this up as it doesn't cope well with thick carpeting. Sebo's G1 series with a manual adjuster dial is better in that respect. Put back the wheel as normal and check that it is lowering once the handle is unlocked. If it doesn't show up with the lights on the front of the hood showing that the wheel is going down, then its either the carpet thickness or the hydrallic wheel mechanism is broken. Contact Sebo in your country and they can usually send out a line diagram or suggest a repair.

Turbo Tool doesn't spin freely

This is air-driven, the only way to clean it is to take it apart. Clean out the bearings and end pieces for the wheel. If it is metal, put a drop of lite weight oil on them, but if plastic, then don'f use oil. Use furniture wax to clean and lube if you need to. It needs to turn freely with no friction. If this doesn't help, then replace it.
