I've seen them come in with that, I've seen it fixed with tape more often than anything. Low tech, low cost. Not professional in any sense of the word but it seems to work.

Good Luck

How can I separatte the ****** handle of my Epic 6500 fromthe hose? I have a wrapped pair of socks stuck in it at the handle


There are two different styles of hose for the 6500 vacuums. Please be careful when you take the handles off and also when putting it back togeather. To remove the handle there are two screw caps that you need to remove to get to the screws. You can do this with the tip of a knife or something similar inserted under the edge of the screw cap and pry up. The screws can either be a Phillips head or a torx bit. Remove the screws and then separate the top part of the handle from the bottom. Make sure to notice the position of the wires and do not unplug them from the switch or the contact block.The contact block at the hose end of the handle has two contacts that transfer the power from the hose to the handle and will bend out of shape if you are not careful. To remove the contact block, use a flat head screw driver under the block and pry up. On the older models, the handle will slip right off. If you have a newer model, there is a handle retainer at the base of the handle and will push out with a screw driver. It only goes one way and
the handle will slip off.
To replace the handle just reverse the procedure. Good luck.

The handle pull comes completely out when you pull the handle to use


Hi! There is a handle screw that attaches the handle to the vacuum that prevents the handle from coming out. I have included a link where you may go to purchase the handle screw if your vacuum is missing it. Hope this helps!

My Hoover Linx handle broke.


Not sure what you mean by a broken handle, but if you mean the plastic is cracking where the handle connects to the main body than I have a suggestion. We have had this happen a couple times and I tried various fixes that did not work. However, recently I found a cheap product that will strength the handle to make it stronger than new. It called Fiber Fix tape (its on Amazon). Wet the tape and wrap the handle. It is a quick set epoxy in a fiberglass like cloth. Dries very hard. Not pretty, but it works great.

Hoover linx cordless bh50010 brush roller not turning


Simple!
Pull brush assembly from the handle.
Remove brush and belt, unscrew ALL screws at the bottom, separate parts, and to your surprise, you will see broken wire leading to the motor. Bad workmanship during assembly leads this wire to be twisted and cut by the plastic parts allowing swiveling. Be prepared to have some hard time setting motor in its place.

Electrolux Epic 6500/ handle clip broke....


The clip can be replaced by taking apart the handle. Small round plastic inserts cover up the screws that hold the handle together. Use a very small screwdriver to pry them off, then use a small screwdriver to remove the screws(Some of the screws may be star screws requiring a special screwdriver. The top part of the handle will then lift off and you will be able to change out the clip. Before reasembling the handle, clean the contacts which attach to the hose and be careful that you do not bend the contacts. It is kind of tricky to put back together.

Good Luck

Bissell Healthy Home Won't turn on


I found the solution for my vaccum!!

The top handle connects to the lower half of the handle with one phiilips head screw. The screw is halfway between the cord holder on the back. The screw had come loose and the handle has slid back away making it not make contact to send the power down to the motor.
Hope this helps someone else!

Power head stops and starts


Sounds like there is definately something stuck inside it. You;ll need to dismantle the floor head carefully using a screwdriver. Make sure your machine is switched off though if it is a power head and not an air turbine turbo head. Once inside check the main roller brush as well as the side caps as these can become clogged. Also check the main dirt channel leading to the pipes of the vacuum. 
Dont forget to rate, thanks.

Bissell 5770 Healthy Home vacuum fell over and now will not power on. Closest service center is 55 miles away. I'm very hands and can fix most things, but never took apart a vacuum yet. Can I do this?


Same thing happened to me. The handle connects to the unit and actually plugs in. If you are lifting or carrying it by the handle then you can unplug the unit from itself. Reconnect it and you should be good to go.

Vax 4100, how to disassemble for repair


To disassemble a canister vax you first remove 2 screws holding the handle cover. One is just above where the power flex enters the handle, the other is at the mid-point of the top, hidden under the label. Both are small crosshead screws. Before doing attempting this, you need to be competent with working on mains electric wiring, as some of this has to be removed to do all this.

Once the handle covers are removed, the next bit is to gently lever off the speed control knob - it's a tight friction fit, then undo the nut holding it to the handle cover panel. After this undo the mains power connections from the multi-block joiner they go into then remove the 2 screws securing the mains wire. Then undo 2 bolts at each end of the handle going downwards into the main body. At this point the handle can be removed as well as the top body plate. You have to fiddle the electrics and switches through the hole in the top body plate to remove it. Now 3 bolts and a small crosshead screw is all that holds the upper motor section to the lower. Remove these and you can separate the 2 halves which gives you acess to the water pump. This is held in by screws founf underneath the plastic ring at the base of the motor body (around where the small reound blue sponge filter goes). This ring is held in by plastic springy clips. Gently lever round it to get it come off.

That's it. Re-assemble is reverse of all this. Don't disconnect the electrics without drawing pictures or photographing to work out which wire goes to where.
