I have a dyson DC28 vacuum and the power button flashes on and off and the beater bar quit turning. I turned it over and found some string caught on the beater bar which I removed, but the beater bar still...


I had the same symptom with my wife's DC28. The problem was associated with the cam driven height adjustment mechanism. The beater bar must rock freely up and down when pressing on the tabs that the end cam lobes actuate. On ours I found hair and crud jammed in between the end of the beater bar and the side of the vacuum head preventing it from moving freely. To clean it out I fashioned a hook tool by straightening a paper clip and bending the tip at 90*, then took a flat screwdriver to pry the gap open a bit so I could use my tool to clean out the buildup.

I removed the plate that holds the cam in place (6 torx screws) to gain access to the rocker tabs, although in hind sight I could have probably just left it in place. It doesn't matter how you set the cam back into place. It's self aligning with the aid of the micro-switches inside.

Hope this helps

I have bosch forumla vaccum and cord got stuck. It is very hard for me to see the screws to open it. Could somebody help me how to open this safely.


This problem is solved easily after I found the third screw to open the top cover. You will find the third screw under the top cover where the variable regulator is. But be patience, your small mistake can screw up whole system. You will need a torx screw driver set.
Remember, dismental step by step. top cover/screw/top housing.

I found my cord retract mechanisam spring broken, I didn't put new one. Cause it could cost me more. However I just took the cable out which was tangles and kinked.

Can't remove the top to get to the motor


2 of the 4 fasteners on my Genie were TORX head screws with the little round 'blocking post' in the opening.
I acquired a set of TORX drivers which have a hollow center to accomodate these particular fasteners. (Maybe the tools came from Harbour Freight)
The REAL problem is that a new motor seems to cost 2 or 3 times the price of a new wet/dry vac.
Good luck

How do I open my Kenmore Whispertone 12.0 to get to the cord reel


The motor / cord compartment cover must be removed to access the cord reel. There are four screws that hold the cover to the chassis. Two of the screws are found under the cord-retractor-foot-pedal on the top back of the canister. To access these screws the pedal must be removed. To do this, press the pedal down and look (from the top) for the four plastic clips that attach/hold the pedal hinges to the cover. There are two at the end corners and two in the middle. Using a long, thin flat-head screw driver (or similar instrument) press each clip to unhook/popout the hinges. Note: the foot pedal spring will also come out when the pedal is removed.

The other two screws are found under the curved hinges of the vaccum bag compartment cover. To access these, lift the cover as if accessing the vacuum bag. Keep pulling the cover back until the hinges release from the motor cover. Don't worry, it is disigned to do this and will not break but it may require a little force. A long phillip-head screw driver will be needed to access and remove each screw. Good luck. - Gary

My dyson will not stay on when i press the button.


OK...so while I'm sure that hitting the power button w/ a mallet will work...I was having the same issue and felt uncomfortable hitting my very expensive Dyson w/ a mallet. 
Here is what I did to fix the problem I have a DC17...I am sure instructions will vary by model Here is what you will need: 1. flat head screw driver 2. Torx -15 screw driver.  
1. remove the dust tank  2.Pull the extension tube (handle) out (as if you were going to  vacuum a tight area.  3. there are 2 torx screws that you will have to remove 4. there are 4 retaining clips that you will use the flat head screw driver to unlatch.   5. After you remove the torx screws and release the 4 retaining clips, the front panel (that houses the power button) can be removed.  6. This will expose the actual power button itself.  Most likely it was jammed. 7. Once you think you have fixed it...test out your fix. 8.  If fixed...reassemble

Need to replace belt on Eureka Powerline 12.0 vac. Screws look like Torx head or something on bottom of vac. Are those the screws that need to come out for changing? If so, what size do I need?


No, do not remove the torx head screws for a belt change. If there are any screws that need to be removed for the belt change, they will be phillips head. What is model # of vac??

My Vacuum Will Not Turn On or Off


You will need a Torx bit or screwdriver with a torx head on it. That will remove the motor cover. The top cover should only have 2 phillips head screws to remove.

Belt


Remove sole plate and beater bar.
Remove control knob by prising between yellow plastic side of knob and casing using wide bladed screwdriver.
There three torx headed screws holding the clotch assembly in place. Two are visible but the third is accessed via a circular access holein the main casing.
When these three screws are removed the clutch assembly can be pulled out. the thinner belt driven by the motor needs easing over the motor shaft.
There are two screws holding the end plate onto the clutch assembly. remove these, twist the end plate and remove. note where the fibre clutch plate and the metal plate fit and replace this belt.
On opposite end prise off spring washer and this assembly comes off the reveal the belt.

Refitting is the reverse.
Have a look on you tube and type in replacing clutch on Dyson DC4 as there is a 10 minute vidio that is quite good!!
Hope this helps!!!!!
