How do I installa new hose to the mortorized brush head on my shark lift waway


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Replacing your Shark Floor Nozzle Hose is very easy. Start by unplugging your unit to avoid any safety hazards. The floor nozzle hose's side that attached to the floor base of your Navigator can easily be pulled away. The other side of the floor nozzle hose has two tabs that can be pushed in while pulling it away from the base.

When installing, connect the floor nozzle hose to the canister first by pressing both side tabs while placing it until it click in its place. Then connect the hose to the floor base.

My home has a central vacuum system hook-up but no vacuum installed. My friend upgraded his central system and gave me his Eureka Mega Boss central vacuum system and the accessories, including the pow


The power head requires 120 Volts. Some hoses have a receptacle in the handle for the power head plug, and the hose has a cord at the wall inlet end that plugs into a receptacle. Some hoses have a plug at the wall inlet end that plugs into a 120Volt receptacle built into the inlet. The hose plugs into this receptacle when you push the hose into the inlet. The power for this built-in receptacle is wired with line voltage when the system is installed.

I bought a new plastic end piece for the hose but can't get the old one off the hose to change it???


Soak the end of the hose it very hot water to soften the end of the hose. Then insert a screwdiver inside the plastic end piece and flex the end of the hose inward and pull the old end off. To install the new end, bend the end of the hose into a "kidney bean" shape and push the new end on.

How to replace the flexible hose between the upright and floor modules?


Turn the vacuum on it's side. Pull the power nozzle end out. Unscrew, in a clockwise direction, the hose from the body/tank.
Reverse to install new hose. Screw the hose into the tank, turning counter-clockwise. Place other end into power nozzle. Ensure it's set properly.

I have a Dyson which isn't picking up. The tools work normally. All the air ways and filters are clean and not clogged up. What could it be?


So when the Dyson works on the attachment hose, but doesn't work when cleaning the floors, this can be caused by a few things.

The first place you should look is at the bottom plate. Sometimes if the bottom plate is taken off to clean the brushes, it is very easy to install it back on the vacuum the wrong way. Here's pictures of both the wrong way, and the right way to install this plate. What happens is that the bottom plate is actually higher then the brushes, so when cleaning on carpet the brushes don't actually hit the carpet, decreasing the pick up on floors dramatically.

Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:

Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:


8b953d0.jpg
I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.

If you check this part and it is correctly installed on the machine, here's something else that is pretty frequent on Dyson's that would cause the same exact issue you're having:

Possible Problem # 2. Turn the vacuum upside down so the brush roller is facing upwards. I found the easiest way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. On the left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible transparent hose that goes from the motor to the agitator housing. This hose actually has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum is in the reclined position. When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models came out, they didn't make this hose long enough, so when the vacuum was in the reclined position, it would put too much stress on the hose, and cause the hose to actually crack, usually right where the end of the hose that goes into the agitator housing. Examine your hose and see if you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to you may just remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily come right out of the machine so you can inspect it better. Here's a picture of where the hose usually cracks:


54cb5e5.jpg
This would also explain why the vacuum works fine when using the attachments, but not on the floors. The attachment hose uses a different suction channel, and when the machine is in the upright position, no suction goes through this hose. If you do find a crack in this hose, the this hose needs to be replaced. Here's a direct link to that hose on our GoVacuum website.

I know that you said you have checked the clog ports for obstructions and there weren't any, but I'll just paste the picture of both clog ports on the Dyson just in case:

Other things you may want to look for is the length of the actual bristles on the roller brush. The Dyson vacuums use a very cheap, thin bristle on their brushes. The bristles wear down quickly, and need be replaced I would say every 2-3 years, maybe even sooner if you have pets in your home, and vacuum a lot. Here's a picture of the Dyson brush (this is the DC07 model, not sure if this is the model you have) when it's new so that you may compare it.

If none of these suggestions fixed your vacuum, I'd be more then happy to walk you through some more advanced diagnosing. Please just add a comment using the Clarification request form here on Fixya, and let me know which exact model you Dyson have, and if you found anything new while trying these fixes above.

If you did find this repair helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful and/or leave feedback for the repair. This is really what keeps repair professionals like myself keep posting free repair advice on Fixya, and it's really appreciated.

Thanks again,

How to dismantle vacuum hose at the handle with the power switch on epic 6500


Good that you didn't just pry things open. If you look closely you will see several tiny plastic caps under which will be hidden screws. Remove the screws and gently separate the "handle cover" from the main handle, then slide the handle off the hose. Clean the internal handle contacts and the rings on the hose. Reassemble by installing handle onto hose fully to align contacts, then installing wiring cover portion onto the hand grip.
Any evidence of black pitting on the rings needs to be polished with fine sandpaper and the finger contacts adjusted for tension to eliminated further shorting. After cleaning, you can apply a very thin film of petroleum jelly to the contact rings for smoother rotation.

I have a Hoover steamvac ultra. The handheld hose


If you have installed the hose properly, try to hold your hand over the suction end with the cleaner on to prime the water in the hose. There is no way to dissasemble the hose. You could have a possibility of a few thing that have failed,
1. the pump that feed the hose
2. the valve on the hose end
3. the check valve where you connect te hose to the machine
Also verify that you are dispensing solution to the floor, if so, then the above needs to be checked.
Have it looked at at repair shop for diagnosis

I havent used my shampooer for over a year, and i am now having t


These are the parts-Tank,tray,brush roll,brushroll housing,belt,hose,foam screen(small,quarter sized plastic screen)large foam air filter,(should be on the air inlet at tank).

Starting with brushroll,install belt over brushroll,and place brushroll in the trayInstall the brushroll housing over the top of tray..Looking thru the back,turn the belt lifter knob until the hook inside picks up the belt.Raise the height adjuster on the Kirby all the way up.Attach the entire assembly to the front of maching,and lock it on.Now turn the belt lifter clockwise until the belt drops onto shaft.Snap the elbow end of hose to tray.Before attaching the other end of hose to tank,make sure the foam screen is fitted onto the small outlet at tank,then install hose.Note:Sometimes the screen will be in the tank end of hose allready.Without this screen,you wont get foam,only solution.Make sure the foam air filter is installed in the large opening at the tank,or dirt will get into tank,clogging it.Install the tank to the blower side of machine.You should be ready to go.Lower the height adjustment all the way down.
