I took apart my Eureka 71B hand held vacuum and a small spring fell out. I don't know where it goes and can't find a manual anywhere. Help?


Lonny,
I have a 71-B2 model myself and if you can take a picture of the spring, I can try to take mine apart and see if I can figure out where your spring goes and get back with you.

How to fix a broke cable inside a reel in Electrolux Ergospace ZE2262


If the vacuum runs well with no other problems it may be worth buying a new cord reel. It may be less expensive to purchase a new vacuum but it may not last as long as an older machine. I have many 10 to 20 year old vacuums brought into my store for routine maintenance. Do not try to replace the cord as you are correct, the spring come flying out.

It heats up but no steam


i just fixed mine tonight. it was heating but not releasing steam. i took apart the mop, not the head and found that the tube connecting to the heating element popped off....the spring inside the tube was also haning out. i found the metal clamp that was holding it randomly in there as well. i pushed the spring back in the tube and then pushed the clamped back onto the tubing, then pushed the tubing back onto the heating element then slid the clamp down over the tubing and the heating element and now my shark works great again!!

Lo longer steams


I just finished taking my wifes S3101 apart because of the same problem. I found the inlet and outlet hoses clear, so the problem had to be with the heater. I took the water side of the heater apart and found the outlet nipple clogged with dirt and sand. I live in VA Beach and my wife uses tap water. There was a lot of sand and dirt in the heater, so I cleaned all of that out, used a very small drill bit to clear the outlet nipple and then reassembled. It works fine now, and you will have to use distilled water if you want the unit to work for any period of time. The casing screws were a real pain to remove, so take your time.

Steam not coming out


I just took my wifes S3101 apart and found both inlet and outlet hoses clear, but nothing coming out of the boiler. I took the water side of the heater apart and found the outlet nipple clogged with dirt and sand. I'm from VA Beach and my wife uses tap water. After cleaning out the water side of the heater I had to drill out the outlet nipple, it was that plugged. Anyway, after that, I reassembled and it works fine. By the way, removing the casing screws was a lot of fun (not).

The water tank is getting really hot,steams come out the sides of it but no steam is coming out the bottom.


I was having the same problem. No steam out the bottom. I took the whole thing apart and cleaned it...inside and the mop heads. I now get water to the heads but steam is still coming out the sides of the unit and leaking. I took it apart again and this time had my husband look at it. He found a tube with a spring in it...the spring had punctured the side of the tube and was leaking inside the machine! I am really upset by this as the machine never really worked right from the beginning but I really did not know it was not supposed to work this way. Now the machine is over a year old. I will be calling tomorrow and complaining but am not very optimistic that they will do anything and from what I have been reading will NEVER buy another one!

The spring goes inside that pedal that you step on to advance the height. Place that spring in that pedal and then place the pedal into its' groove, then put the axile and wheel assembly over the pedal and put your screws back into the mounting sections.

Shark steam mop


I had the same prob and found this site off google looking for the solution.

I went back to my shark and took out all the screws, some don't feel like they were coming out but it came apart. Take a pair of pliers and release the spring clip holding the hose to the heat nozzle. Then pull off the hose. Then take a paper clip, unkink it so it's sort of straight with a curve to go into the hole . Shove it in and out to clean out the hole. I got my fingers blasted with residual steam so you should let it cool first. But I think the steam bursting out helped clean out the hole. Don't throw it away till after you try that..It worked great after that. All the best, Satch
