How do i pull the poles apart?

If you have a bath, I suggest that you run a couple of inches of hot soapy water and leave them to soak for half an hour.When you take them out twist and pull the tubes at the same time.
If they still do not come apart hold at 45% to the floor and tap one end lightly on the floor (not so hard that you damage anything) turn a little after each tap, then try again to twist an pull them apart.
When you do part them clean the joint where the tubes touch and then rub will a little cooking oil on a piece of kitchen roll, makes them easier to part next time.

Hi. I have a Dyson Animal DC28, purchased on June 28th of 2010. The wand is stuck in the hose and I cannot remove it to use it.

I think I figured this out. If the hose gets twisted too many times while being used, the pole has a hard time going in and out for removal. (Kind of like how old phone cords got all twisted up after use for a while) To get it out, lift the pole out as far as you can then tug on the hose pulling it down & out ways until you can work the pole all the way up to get it out. Once out, detach the hose from the wand and turn it a few time (I had to go counter clockwise) to un twist the hose a little. Seemed to fix this problem for me.

Need to open the electrolux vacum

The locking key on the side of the vac has a tightening wedge on it so it doesn't slide easily. Spray the entire key top and bottom with WD40 or similar. Grasp at the bag door area with vise grips and pull the key straight forward.
If the key will not slide, you will need to take a large flat bladed screwdriver and lay the blade flat at 90 degrees against the back end of the key. then strike the side driving the key forward toward the bag chamber door. Do not twist.

Replace my fan on my kerby

I had to replace mine fan yesterday. I broke away some of the outer pieces and grabbed the fan around the center with some vise grips and put another vise grip on the shaft. ( You can also put a hard steel tool of some kind through the hole in the shaft) when facing the front from the attachment side the shaft unscrews when turning it clockwise.It comes apart right in front of the fan where the washer is.

I think I picked up a nail with my Hoover Legacy Two, Vacuum Cleaner. It made a terrible sound and i sh ut it off immediately. I can't locate our manuel. How do I get into the propeller area, to extract...

I removed the plastic tip of the suction adjustment lever, and then easily pried the plastic housing covering and protecting the motor. Once the motor was exposed one could see the 1.5 inch screw, quite easily. With a pair of vise grips the screw, with some difficulty, was extracted from the fan wing. I replaced the housing and found the vacuum cleaner worked as well as before. I applied goop to the lever tip, put it back where it belonged, and allowed it to dry overnight.

I need to replace vacuum hose

If you have a vise, put the end in to and you want to just squeeze it so you can get to the 2 tabs inside and using 2 flat blade screwdrivers, pry outward and the hose should come out of the cuff. Sometimes you can just cut and rewire, but watch and match colored wires to the right colors, mix them up and you would have a electrical mess. When you put it back together, push the cuff down until you hear it snap into place.

Kirby generation 3 fan

You have to take off the top cover, then the handle pivot. Look down at the back of the armature you will see that it has a flat spot, you use a small vise grips or pliers to hold it, turn the belt pulley to the right if I remember right and turn the pulley off. If it won't come free, use a couple of flat blade screwdrivers and pry up to pop the fan off. Then put it all back together.

Screw rusted; cannot remove

ok for one, once you remove the screw hopefully you havent damaged the armature, which is the most important part,,,,1. get vice grips 2. try to get something to lock the sides down, ......question first, do you know if it works, if it does why are you taking the screw off, also if it doesnt its unfortunately probaly not worth fixing, if you need parts off of it just crush the side open..... if you come across another unit that has a screw loose, use silicon on the bolt and screw it will help keep it from rusting...
