Re: attachment probs

Hi- Do you have a manual for the vacuum? My manual says to raise the headlight hood and then flip out the l-shaped handle on the belt lifter and turn it until the red arrows line up. Turn the accessory lock all the way to the left and the front should lift off. Then take the attachment hose and hook the two hooks over the bar and then push the hose up against the vacuum and lock into place by turning lever to the right. Does this help? Its kinda hard to explain without the pics.

study how the bag attaches to the machine. usually you turn that bag collar a quarter turn counterclockwise to get that collar off. get ready because dirt will get all over.. then hook the larger end of the hose to where you just took that off. one of those smaller attachments that came with it goes on the other end of the hose to attach it to the mattress or use a small funnel or a straw and duct tape..

We have an Epic6500. when we plug it in the machine works without the hose. We even purchased a new hose thinking there was a problem with the hose. However as soon as we put the hose on the machine the...

Wow, this is a good one. I wonder if anyone has wrked on this machine before. Do you remember what happened when it stopped working / Obviously there is a foul up in the wiring. I need more info. When the machine is on does it shut off as soon as the hose is plugged in? All I can figure with the info. I have is the hose is plugged which overloads the machine overheating it and the heat sensor shuts it down. But, if bought a new hose that cant be can it? Check the hose anyway for clogs. Blow in the hose with your mouth and se if the air goes through easily. Also, check the back side if the machine to see if the motor is hot. Please, let me know what you find, this is weird. After fixing Electrolux for almost 25 years I have never come across this. Chris email me

No suction in hose

Remove the machine side of the hose--is there suction at the machine? If so, run a broom handle or similar through the hose to dislodge the clog. If no suction at the machine, you may need to fish out debris with a hooked stiff wire from the port. Remove the bag and examine the port area underneath for similar clogging. Finally, check the brush area underneath the machine bottom plate for more obstruction. Also, check the brush assembly for debris accumulation. Remove the drive belt and check for free turning of the brush. If turns hard, remove the brush, clean the bearings and roller pins, then apply a small quantity of light oil like 3-1 or sewing machine oil. Hope this helps!

Hoover Superscub attachments won't work

It sounds to me like you have the water hose plugged in, but not the hose block. In the front of the dirty water return tank there should be a removable square plastic piece. Remove the lid and slide that piece out. Replace wth the back end of the hose receptacle. If you have already done this, then here is your problem: when you return the lid to the top of the return tank, you must roll it on from the front(there are brackets the lid hooks under) to the back and listen or feel or the "click" your tank is now ready to pick up the dirty water from your hose. let me know if this helps!

I can't figure out how to hook up hose attachment to dyson 07

You have a reversible wand on the DC07. You have to separate the wand from the hose first, then turn it around and reconnect it. Once that is done you will be able to use the attachments on the end of the wand. You can also connect your attachments to the hose.
To separate the wand:
1) Take the wand off the back of the machine
2) Place one hand on the Handle and one hand on the gray flexible hose.
3) Push the flexible hose down. You will see a long metal rod appearing. Push until the hose clicks into place at the bottom of the metal rod.
4) You'll see a half-moon shape button with a picture of a lock on the solid gray plastic part at the top of the hose - push it, this will separate the wand from the hose.
5) Turn the wand around
6) Push the purple wand cap with the holes in it back, it exposes a short dark gray pipe, about an inch in length
7) Connect the hose to the short pipe
8) Attach your tools to the top of the metal rod and have fun

Remove the bag assembly from the machine.Install the hose to the machine.The upholstery shampooer is simply a trigger assembly with a jar attached.Simply connect the back of the trigger ***'y to the end of the hose.On the attachment case is a cloth covered cap that goes on the other end of the trigger assembly.This is what creates the foam.Fill the jar with shampoo solution.Use the trigger to deposit the foam onto surface.Work the foam into fabric using soft cloth or brush.When it's dry,vacuum the foam and dirt out using the hose attachment on the suction side(front) of the machine

Furniture cleaning isn't a science: try out a few techniques before choosing the one that is right for your belongings. This step-by-step guide explains how to clean a sofa:
  1. Before using any upholstery cleaning products, vacuum the sofa or chair first to remove as much surface dirt and dust as possible. Be sure to use the correct attachments to avoid damage to the material - a soft brush attachment is ideal.
  1. Spot Clean. Using baby wipes or vinegar poured onto a strong microfiber cloth, apply to any obvious stains, wiping gently as you go. Remember to test the upholstery cleaning products on an inconspicuous area first.
  1. Overall Clean. Using soapy water and a microfibre cloth, gently wipe your sofa with the solution, allowing it to soak into the fabric and tackle the dirt beneath the surface. You only want to use a very small amount of water - don't saturate the material.
  1. Dry. Some people use a hairdryer to quickly dry a sofa, but allowing it to dry naturally is always the better option, if you have the time. To speed things up, open windows and allow the breeze to help with the drying process.
