How do I fix a squeak in a hardwood floor


squeeks in a hardwood floor most times are caused by the hardwood separating from the underlayment (board) and hence it piviots on a nail and you got a squeak !! , there are a few ways to fix this "

if the squeak is located in a spot that is accessible from under the floor , see if you can determine what hardwood and underlayment thickness is , look around behind a floor casement or around a doorway trim with flashlight , find a wood screw that is 1/8 less than this number (two added together ) also locate a drill that is just size of screw shaft you found , drill hole from under the floor (underlayment) just deep enough to penetrate the underlayment (3/4 inch or so) use tape on bit as a gauge , don't drill into hard wood then drive wood screw into hole , the idea is that screw will pull hardwood down to underlayment , screw cant grip underlayment due to hole so this is piviot point . a shot of wood glue on screw threads helps it from coming out too !!


now if space under squeak isn't accessible this is a bit harder but not impossible to do , there are a few special items to get first , one is a glue injector needle !! this typically is used making wood furniture but I have seen a meat basting syringe used in a pinch too, locate the spot close to squeak from top , using a small drill dril down at seam (not in middle of board) just deep enough to hardwood Not underlayment , load up your syringe with wood glue and force it down into hole with needle takes some force to do this , wipe off spilled glue and set a heavy object on this spot for 24 hrs object can be a lg pile of books or I use cement blocks (4) set on a piece of butcher paper (not cardboard) after 24 hr remove blocks and ck for squeak if none use hard setting tinted wood filler to plug hole you made and top off with a dot of varnish to seal it when dry and flat if you still detect the squeak then move over a board or two and repeat process till squeak is gone

Ball makes a clicking noise every 0.25 metres. Please help


Please read this answer all the way through there is something that may be relevant (strike out 'important') at the end !

Maybe it's this
"clip that holds the filter in place and the locating lug of the access flap to gently rub together as the ball rotates and create a slight clicking noise as the appliance is moved around (though is not routinely noticed due to the motor noise)"
(from Fully Cleaned Serviced Refurbished Dyson DC25 Animal Ball Vacuum Cleaner )
stop press - I just saw this - if you do not have proper Dyson brand HEPA filters - see end of answer - you may get a loud clicking sound....
The manual tells you about removal and cleaning HEPA filter - the All floors version has one as well)
Otherwise I can only refer to Dyson support, there are various ways of contacting them given at the top right of this webpage Support forDC25 Multi Floor
(the user guide manual is downloadable from this webpage)
Sounds to me as if maybe there is an irregularity on the ball that is contacting the body/ball housing every time the ball does round....unfortunately this makes the ball diameter ~8cm which too small.

The main belt on my hoover model u6634-900 windtunnel keeps comming off the motor shaft


  • A list of things to check (unplug vacuum FIRST):
    1. All contact surfaces for belt are clean of build up, that can push belt in one direction
    2. Brush roller is not flip end for end (the pulley on the motor shaft should line up straight with the worn area of the brush roller).
    3. The guard on the bottom (covering the belt and brush sides) is clean and free of build up.
    4. The ends of the brush roller are free of build up and the bushings that slide in the end are inserted in the correct direction, this can cause the brush roller to set at an angle and cause the belt to slide in one direction.
    5. You have the correct replacement belt, I have found the wrong belt placed in the packaging for my vacuum at the factory once before (check manufacturers website).
    6. If the brush roller is extremely worn, it could be time to replace but this is very unlikely.
    7. Rotate the motor shaft by hand and see if there is any wobble, the pulley could be on crooked or bearing has failed causing slop in the motor shaft.

Belt replace panasonic vac


Is it an upright? On mine it's very simple.
Unplug vacuum and lay it on floor so that you are looking at the rotating brush. Remove screws that attach the cowling. Remove the cowling. You will then see the rotating brush ends. One end will have the belt, or what's left of on the brush wheel. You will also see the motor shaft. The belt goes between the shaft and the brush wheel. Carefully remove the brush by holding both ends and pulling straight out. Place the new belt on the brush wheel and replace the brush. With the belt on the brush wheel, stretch it to fit on the motor shaft. Rotate the brush to make sure the belt is riding correctly at both ends. Replace cowling and screws.

I bought a draper 500w hammer drill. instructions are not straight forward. I don't know how to get started with it. Do I have to plug it in first and how do I start drilling? C


Plug it in ... insert a drill ... tighten the chuck (the thing you put the drill into) ... pull the trigger ... drill the hole.

There should be a collar around the chuck that will select hammer or no hammer --- or there may be a pin to pull near the chuck. There may also ge a clutch on the collar. Play with it so to say, it will soon be self evident how it works.

The only time you will use the HAMMER setting is when you are drilling with a SPECIAL CARBIDE TIP drill into CONCRETE or other non wood - non metal - conctete or clay product (brick).

No matter how many new belts we put in the brush will not rotate when it touches the floor. If you hold it straight up the brush rotates like crazy. Why is the brush not cleaning the floor. Yes, I have the...


There is probably an accumulation of slippery stuff on the shaft that drives the belt. You can scrape it clean with a sharp knife or a razor blade. You might need to use some kind of solvent to get it clean, and if you do, be sure to follow up with something like Windex on a rag. You don't want to leave anything oily on the shaft.

My Sharp EC-l2TWT4 throws belts and I noticed the motor shaft was not running straight. My wife took it to my local dealer in Brainerd,Mn and they said it was fine.So I took it apart and found the plastic...


I checked the schematics for that model and the motor housing for that model is no longer available. Your best bet is to either attempt to find a used part or trade it in and get a new unit. Sharp no longer makes any vacuums or parts which makes these almost obsolete because most of the parts are discontinued.let me know if you have any other questions or would like to talk about recommendations. thanks, chuck

Beater bar in my dirt devil vision wobbles around the center shaft. Took of beater bar and it sounds like sand in it when shaken. Can this be disassembled?


from your description, if your beater bar was wobblying, ther may be more damage to the base of the vac than initially seen. Dirt Devil has different number of warranties in number of years for thier vacuums. I would check with your nearest dealer. Lookup at dirtdevil.com

Majestic filter queen vacums


Your belt is either stretched or the wrong size or the brush bushings are worn and allowing the brush to wobble or the motor is loose in its housing. You need to check all.
Rotate the brush and try to wobble it from the pulley end.
Flip the belt inside out, it if appears cupped, cracked or shiney and slips easily on and off the brush it is stretched. Generally this unit needs anew belt evrey 6 months, broken or not, they get hot and stretch. Do not buy a new belt by matching size, a worn belt can be 20-30% oversized and not broken but totally useless.
The motor shaft should be cleaned with W/D 600 grit sand paper. Motor should have no wobble in the shaft

Rainbow e series vaccum/scubber


If you are talking about the hard wood floor brush you hook it at the end of the one slightly bent wand. Look at the end of the brush that you would hook to the wand. In the circle opening there are two slits. On the end of the wand there are two bumps. You need to line them up, push the brush on then twist it around so it stays on. then you attach the straight wand to that and the other slightly bent wand at the other end of the straight one. It will go like this Wet hose, slightly bent wand, straight wand, slightly bent wand, and floor brush. I hope I helped. Leave the basin empty. put your water or cleaner on the floor scrub it around then turn machine on and suck it up.
