How do i get the bearing caps off the roller brush


Generally, brush roller caps are attached by lock nuts. If you clamp the nut at one end with pliers, you can remove the nut at the other end and slide out the shaft.

I took apart my eureka quick up vacuum and am not sure how to re assemble


I just did the same thing and had to reassemble also. I recommend turning it upside down. First make sure the belt is wrapped around the motor threads as well as the brush threads, then rest the brush more or less where it goes in the front of the vacuum. The white plastic pieces each have a small hole - you need to insert one end of the brush into each while plastic piece. When you lie the plastic piece flat you should see that the other end fits together with the top of the vacuum. The trickiest part is getting the tiny little wheels into place. Just worry about the 2 in front first. Set them carefully into place in the square holes in the front corners of the machine. Use your finger or a screwdriver to fit the mini axles properly into the grooves. Carefully push the bottom of the vacuum into place until it seems to snap in place (be careful that the wires are tucked in well) and screw in the 4 main screws. Final step is to reattach the smaller black cover to the bottom (back) side - be sure to get that wheel in place before fitting the cover on and then tighten up the final 2 screws.

The wheels with the spring broke off and I'm trying to put a new one on but I don't know where the spring goes.


This spring can be very confusing to install. It slides onto the wheel assembly near where the attaching pin is longer ( there are flat protrusions on both sides of the wheel assembly). One end of the spring pushes up on the assembly when it is in place, and the free end must be pulled down and inserted into the small slot in the bottom of the base. Pull down on the shorter end of the spring, holding the longer end, and slide it onto the round area on the wheel assembly. As you put the wheels back on, pull on the longer end and insert it into the slot in the base.

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?


Greetings,

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, govacuum.com.

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.

The spring goes inside that pedal that you step on to advance the height. Place that spring in that pedal and then place the pedal into its' groove, then put the axile and wheel assembly over the pedal and put your screws back into the mounting sections.

Kenmore Model 116 PowerMate Jr stopped working


If the roller brush is not spinning freely once you remove it from the Power Mate Jr., then I have discovered the solution! There are end caps at each end of the roller brush. They seem to be permanently attached, but they are not. There is an axle inside the roller that is permanently attached to one of the caps. Take two pairs of pliers, and grab each end cap with a pair of pliers. Then pull hard to take them off. Once they are off, you will find that there is a big glob of hair wrapped around the axle inside. Remove the hair. Then reassemble the brush by putting the end caps back on. Make sure, when you put the caps back, that they are aligned so that they will fit back into the slots on the Power Mate Jr. You have to push hard to get the caps back on, maybe tapping one of them with pliers.
