Question about Samsung Vacuums

1 Answer

Hose has come off hose clamp. It should screw in but the inner ring on the clamp spins so the hose will not screw in. What do I need to do? I cannot reach the spinning part from the other end of the c

The inner ring has indents but a fingernail won't hold the ring still enough to screw on the hose. The clamp also has two pushbuttons (one on either side) at the correct end that look like they should allow that ring to pop out. But the buttons won't push in. Ideas?

    That (eventually) worked, by holding the indent still so the ring did not spin. It was definitely a two-person job! But thank you for the idea, because it worked.

SOURCE: on button won't stay on

I had this same issue under the same circumstance. I followed the repair guide for replacing the switch (I didn't replace the switch, just disassembled the switching mechanism) posted here:

http://www.sparesaver.com/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/dyson-dc14-technical-advice-474/replacing-the-switch.html

I found the switch to be stuck in between on and off. I just manually pushed the switch and it became unstuck and started working again.

Cleaning heater core


The heater is located in the handle. It can become clogged with soap or mineral deposits. It can be removed and cleaned by removing the screws holding the front and back of the handle together. Separate the handle parts to gain access to the heater. It can be removed by taking the clamps off the water inlet and outlet lines. Remove the electric wires from the heater. Remove the screws holding the top on the water heater (be careful not to lose little gaskets with each *****) clean inside of heater and reinstall all wires, hoses, screws exactly as they were before.

Dyson power head stops but can be started immediatly


Just had the same problem. Took apart whole power head to look for broken wire and found none. If you see part way up the hose there is a coller with 4 torx screws holding together. This collar is a swivel that allows the hose to spin without twisting or kinking. Take the 4 screws out and open up. You will see 3 contacts that look like fingers that rub on 3 mating steel rings. Wipe the tips of the fingers and wipe clean the rings. Gently bend the fingers out wards so that they apply more pressure to the steel rings. Reassemble and try. Should take no more than 15 mins. Worked for me good luck!

Hoover steam vac hose is broken


This applies to Hoover SteamVac model F5899-910.

My unit had a broken hose. I repaired the hose using duct tape and Teflon tape. The breakage seems to be due to a manufacturing error or design defect. The hose is clamped to the unit where it passes to the inside. The position of the clamp did not allow enough slack when the handle is released and the unit is wide open.

The hose coupling has a plastic latch that holds it onto the vacuum nipple. Pry it and remove the coupling. Then trim the ragged end of the hose and clean things up. Wrap the hose with some teflon tape and then tape the hose to the coupling with several turns of duct tape. Attach the hose coupling back onto the vacuum nipple.

Now you should move the clamp say an inch, so that it leaves more slack. Take the two screws out of the clamp and pry out the plastic bracket/cover that holds the clamp in place. Then move the clamp and screw the clamp back onto the bracket/cover. Then snap the bracket/cover back in place.

Take care not to put too much slack in the hose (by moving the clamp too far), as the hose can also bunch up due to being too crowded when the handle is upright.

Inspect the hose and the tape whenever you use it.

How do I change the belt on a dirt devil ultra vision vacuum cleaner


I just changed mine and I will be blunt. First off, the design is **** on this vacume, secondly the belt was designed to break on the rusty carbon steel pully rod. Ok now that I've vented we will get down to business. On the bottom of the vacume you will find a plastic housing thats covering the brush. It will have 4 screws around the brush plus one above them. The housing itself is shaped like an L. Remove all the screws and expose the bare brush. This was not my case but there should be a belt holding the brush to a small steel pully rod in the top part of the L indention. If not then just locate an indention on the brush where the belt will be placed and look directly beneath that to find the pully rod (probably about 6 inches beneath the indention on the brush). wrap your new belt around the metal pully rod and then take out the brush. Wrap the other end of the belt around the indention on the brush and pull up hard and replace the brush in its vacume housing. This will take some effort as the belt has to be stretched. When finished replace the housing cover with the five screws and boom you're done.

I had to remove the needle, now my needle won't stay in. When I tighten the needle clamp screw, the needle slips out. Am I missing a part on the end of the needle clamp screw?


I've had this happen a few times. It's usually because I need to loosen the needle clamp screw a little more to make sure I'm getting the needle PAST the screw and far enough up in the channel so that it can be caught by the screw. I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution!
Good luck and happy sewing.

How to change upper filters?


Open the vac as though to change the cone and remove the plastic inner cone with the slotted screw at the bottom.. Underneath you will find a 5" disk , likely coated with fine dust.
That is the one which needs to be changed. Around that disc will be three more screws holding the upper housing onto the vac. These ones are accessible from inside, if changing the motor.
Below the handle of the vac there is a serial number ring and three screws in an offset triangle. If you remove these and the rubber cover for the toe switch, the vac housing will come off. This will reveal the `foam or cotton ``muffler``. You can replace it or wash and dry it if foam. It acts as a muffler more than a a filter....

REMOVING HOSE END


I had to replace the hose end on my Kirby, the motor end. I have the Diamond edition. Just take a hair dryer and get the end of the hose warm, and then us a screw driver. Works like a charm. It stays warm long enough to put the new end on.

Cracked hose for Bissell SpotBot


I found a site that carrys them, not sure if they are out because just as I was about to order one I decided to try and fix mine since the crack was right up next to the handle. http://www.svcvacuum.com/bissell/steamer_hose.htm
All I did was unscrew the two screws where the button is for releasing the water on the hand piece. I thin squeezed the clamp together to remove the water hose. Once that was removed I cut the hose and then PRYED out the part of the hose in the hand piece. I then cut the hose down where the crack was. Feed the "water hose" back through the hole in the handle (I heated it with a lighter just a tiny bit to make it soft and worked it through the hole which I just enlarged a slight bit) and with pliers work it back on. Don't forget the clamp. Next just work the outter hose back into the handle but make sure to use a glue or silicone sealer or both.
Even if you get a new hose Im not sure it will come with the handle. To connect the hose to the Machine part just push in that little plastic "dot" and pull out the hose at the same time. Then remove the old hose by the directions above. There is no need to remover the inner clear hose from the machine part, only the handle

Electrolux Central Vac Hose Clogged


John,

There are several handle types. The pump style has about 8 phillips screws that hold the handle together. Make sure it is not connected to the wall as some have 120V cords or direct connect pins to supply power to a motor driven brush.

The two halves will separate and if it has slip rings the tube will lift up out with the hose.

If this is a low voltage hose, there are three tabs at the base of the handle you press in and pry out the end piece. You will need to remove the switch contacts before the hose will pull out. Remove the phillips screw that holds the switch trim in place and lift out. This will allow the cover to be removed to lift the contacts off the slip rings and the hose will drop out.

Hope this helps!
