Esante BLN embroidery machine. How do I disassemble it for cleaning?

I tried disassembling my brain for cleaning. . . I couldn't get it back together even with a mirror. :)
Sorry about that.
Some things best left to factory authorized service at your local sewing machine store. You could get away with an artists paint brush, pipe cleaner, and maybe a vacuum cleaner super gently. .
Taking things apart is a bad idea. Stories about Edison etc. taking apart a watch are bogus. He might have taken the back off and looked at it. Techs have done the job hundreds of times. Sewing machines are designed to handle lint etc and still run well.
If it aint broke don't fix it.

Hi Jennifer_384, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day. 2005 Yamaha ATV Service Repair Workshop Manuals

I would like to take my homelite vac attack apart and clean it and change oil and change spark plug and clean the gas line and other parts and put it back together. So I need a list of how you clean the...

go to for a diagram. just pay attention when taking apart. its not hard. even lable parts if you need to. an air compressor will be useful in cleaning. and brake cleaner does good on oily parts.drys quick and leaves no residue.

My gs 700 will not start i tore the carbs apart and cleaned the jets and still nothing i put carb cleaner starting fluid and still nothing

the gs700 has mikuni carbs, right? These carbs have a rubber fabric diaphram and o-rings, when you tore the carbs apart did you make sure to remove all rubber and plastic parts, all the jets have o-rings that would have been ruined, the plastic throttle/choke linkage should have been taken out. NEVER USE CARB CLEANER OR STARTING FLUID IN A MOTORCYCLE CARB. there are to many rubber parts. the rubber diaphram alone can run over $100.00 each. for the correct o-rings and gaskets I found ebay to be the best place to shop.Also, one of the characteristics of a suzuki in that era is they won't run right without the factory airbox installed. That cost me lots of time and money finding that out, lol.

My kenmore quick clean vacuum cleaner has no suction. Just seems to blow the dirt out and away from the cleaner. The canister is empty and the filter is clean, so what's going on?

The hose or hoses are plugged...take all the hoses apart and stretch them out... run a stiff wire through them or something like a broom will find that they are full of dust and dirt inside...

Before you take it apart, try running undiluted CLR cleaner through the machine. If it is a calcium build up, running CLR through it twice should clear it.
Let me know if this works. Thanks.

Same problem here also..

The carb may need to be adjusted or taken apart and cleaned. Also check the throttle cable to make sure it hasn't been streched out.

Motor shuts off after about 2 minutes

If you didn't run a fuel stabilizer through the fuel system when you laid up the engine you probably have a varnish build and you may need to take the components off and brake them down to clean with a strong carburetor and jet cleaner.
It is also possible that the fuel pump is also going bad. There is a long shot quick fix that has worked for me in the past with varnish buildup. Add a strong mix of carburetor and injector cleaner of the fuel and run the engine long enough to get it into all the parts. Shut it down and let it sit a day or so. Start it up and let it run. It may run rough at first. If this doesn't work start taking it apart. Good luck.

What can I do and what part do I need to replace? I have taken it apart and clean it but still won't pickup the water.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright. It sounds to me that you may have a clog or an obstruction or the channel to the suction motor per say might be broken and is not creating the suction needed to pickup the water to the recovery tank. So check with your local factory authorized vac dealer that carries and services Bissell. I will give you the Bissell factory phone # listed below for further questions. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
