Question about Black & Decker CK1300 Dustbuster Wet/Dry Vacuum

Open Question

My dust buster smells awful when I turn it on!

I purchased a used, but seemingly pretty new, good condition dust buster. However, whenever I turn it on to use it, it lets off this horrible smell! I looked to see if the filter could be cleaned, and it doesn't look like it can. Are there new filters you can buy? Any suggestions?

I need a charger for my Dust Buster.


You don't need an actual charger that says Dust Buster on it. You can use any charger of the same voltage from some other gadget. Most are 9 volt. Not all, but many are. Just look on the dust buster tag & see what it requires. Some stores like Radio Shack even sell the charger with several adapters..One sure to fit your Dust Buster. Good Luck. This is a pic of one that is $13 at Walmart.

I'm getting a horrible sour/sweaty like smell blowing out of my Henry when vacuuming, i've tried to clean the filter, but its still just the same & the smell also seems to be in the head o


You can buy little sachets of nice smelly stuff to put inside Henry. Most supermarkets have them. Makes the carpets smell nice too.

The belt no longer turns the brush.


If the noise creates a burning smell of rubber the belt is stretched which causes no movement to the brush. Some times it will not smell so bad because of the material it is made from. I advise to open the brush housing and look at the belt. It should be installed very snug. If it moves by hand or by prying it to move while holding the roller brush you will need a new belt

Black and decker handheld vacuum phv1800 type 1 low battery power


Hi I know what you mean! My B&D dust buster used to do this too. The hi power boost means that it can only be used for a limited amount of time. Due to the age of the dust buster though its a sign that the battery is on its way out and regardless of whether or how long its been used or not used, batteries can lose power regardless.
Try to let the dust buster completely lose power and then charge it up for its initial burn in period of 14 hours. Also clean the connection metal strips or hole with a dry cotton bud incase there's any static or dust. Then see if it lasts longer. If the turbo mode or speed 2 is still short, then the battery is dying out.
I don't know where you are but in the UK its hard to get battery replacements for B&D products. You could check your local seller where you are if they have battery replacements but at the cost of current dustbusters it may make more economic sense to consider buying a new dustbuster.

Dirt smell


If this thing has a fast-spinning belt in the "head" of the unit, you are smelling the dust that is being collected in the back of the little drive "chamber" and is being heated up by the motor and the friction of the belt. This is a pretty common thing on vacuum cleaners designed like the Oreck. If it is huge bunnies of dust, well then that means there is a leak somewhere...

Electrical Burning Smell from Henry HVR200 Vacuum Cleaner


Hi! Highly unlikely that you need a new motor.  Highly likely that you need new carbon brushes.  The smell is caused by excessive sparking between the worn brushes and the copper commutator segments.  Most carbon brushes (and from memory I suspect this includes Henry's) have a copper wire buried in their last few millimeters, and you really need to change them before that becomes exposed.   The longer you run it like this, the more likely you are to damage the commutator, so change them sooner rather than later.  When you change the brushes, you can smooth off the commutator with very fine abrasive paper (the objective is to smooth it, not scratch it!), and then blow all the dust away (or **** it away if you have another vac, of course).  Incidentally, you don't say if you are using a paper bag in your Henry. Some people, because the top-hat filter is so good, try to manage without a bag.  This is false economy!  You should always use a bag. I hope this helps! I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.
