The cable is jammed in the sebo hoover winding unit, gentle persuasion wont get it out - how do I get to the cable to unjam it?

Have you tried holding down the release button whilst pulling out the cable?It could be the clutch mechanism has not released or engaged.. Assuming the cable didn't double wrap at some point.if this fails it may require you to dismantle from the base.i have worked on sebo vacs , they are a German company and very well made that can withstand harsh treatment without bits breaking off.but if you do decide to dismantle...disconnect from mains power source....take photos at each stage and be methodical ...keep screws to together for each section and if you come across springs try not to remove them before you know how they locate back into the correct positions when it goes back together.good luck!

How to dismantle dc25

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Our Getting Started guide shows how to assemble DC25, and to dismantle it you would need to follow the same steps in reverse:
Please don't dismantle your DC25 any further than this as you could caused damage not covered under our 5-year warranty.

If you need any help with your machine, it would be worth calling Dyson directly to speak with our experts. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Replace pump in model 7920

You're better off letting a small appliance store service dept handle repairs on this unit. They require tools to dismantle them.

The Hoover steam vac dual v does not spin its brushes and I dont know how to dismantel it to view the belt .

There is no belt on the steam vac - it operates on air flow. Remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole. If it does not turn, the turbine has seized up and must be replaced. Remember that the brush will not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle is tilted back.

I have a philips marathon fc 9202 vacuum cleaner. it has worked fine for a number of years but suddenly has no power. what can i check to diagnose the problem?

I finally found the root cause - Applies for FC9225, but may also solve other types of the same family.
The problem is the switch for the dustbox (not sure if the hinge is worn or the sensor (contactless switch) has another issue). Removing this safety switch (allowing you to switch on the vacuum cleaner without dustbox and filter cartridge properly installed, which I judge not a major 'risk'), permanently solved the issue, 1. Remove the lid 2. Remove the big sealing ring on the bottom of the lid 3. Pull the cantilever switch out (and dispose ;-) ) 4. Re-assemble 5. Fixed the problem in my case
(check 4 last images I added)

For your entertainment: I also filled the connector at lid side with glue gun glue, de-soldered all capacitors and measured them, completely dismantled the motor, pulled the brushes and cleaned the commutator... to find it was just the ****** switch...

We had similar issues (all power level lights start flashing when connecting). We could extend lifetime by electric contact spray. But also this stopped working at some point. Today I finally dismantled. Tip 1: to remove the lid, just push the 2 plastic covers outward at the hinge (no need to dismantle the lid) and push out the shaft.Tip 2: when dismantling main body, unscrew the small wheel below the 'dirt box' (OPPOSITE DIRECTION = CLOCKWISE TO LOOSEN). Tip 3: only dismantle the main plastic cover by loosening all screws.
Then dismantle the main body connector, remove the rubber block at the backside of the connector, make sure the 4 wires are as deep as possible in the connector, fill the connector with glue gun and put a tie rap to keep 4 wires together.
If you want to dismantle the connector, you need to push inside the 4 small latches near each wire, BE CAREFUL NOT TO ROTATE THE INNER OF THE CONNECTOR 180DEG WHEN RE-ASSEMBLING (there is no poko-yoko to avoid this).
I added some pictures to hopefully make things a bit more clear.

take it to a vacuum shop. often these plastic machine are broken beyond repair when someone tries to take them apart at home. a vac shop should be able to diagnose the problem and provide and estimate for repair at little to no charge.

Rainbow Vacuum smells like something is burning.

When it is running look on top of unit to see if there is any flashing from the brushes, if your unit has been getting pretty hot on top, it would probably be motor brushes. These are not very expenseive to replace and by doing so you will have your unit for so many more years.
