SOURCE: Electrolux Central Vac Hose Clogged

John,

There are several handle types. The pump style has about 8 phillips screws that hold the handle together. Make sure it is not connected to the wall as some have 120V cords or direct connect pins to supply power to a motor driven brush.

The two halves will separate and if it has slip rings the tube will lift up out with the hose.

If this is a low voltage hose, there are three tabs at the base of the handle you press in and pry out the end piece. You will need to remove the switch contacts before the hose will pull out. Remove the phillips screw that holds the switch trim in place and lift out. This will allow the cover to be removed to lift the contacts off the slip rings and the hose will drop out.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I need to remove the handle of my Eletrolux 6500 from the hose.

If it is in the tube part of the vacuum, you could poke it out with a long and skinny pole, or a meter stick. If it is stuck in the hose, just open up the part that closes the vacuum bag, and do the same with a very long piece of metal or wood, as a meter stick will not be long enough.

SOURCE: remove hose from handle on old electrolux canister

BE careful here. Do not fish a coat hanger in the handle.
The original hose has a set of detachable handle componnets.There are two metal screws in the underside of the hand grip.Do Not pry. Once removed go to the suction dial area underside of the grip. Observe the plastic fingers near the dial. These must be reset in their " track " when reassembling the handle.
Gently insert a small flat screwdriver between the rubber wiring contacts and the plastic tongue wraps around the socket. this tongue which extends from the hose handle adjacent to the metal tube. Work you way back to the hose area carefully separating the "hand grip cover" from the hose handle itself.
Once apart remove the obstruction. Carefully clean the two brass rings looking for any pitting. If pitted, gently polish by rotating fine wet/dry sandpaper around the rings, then lube with vaseline.
The matching contact fingers on the handgrip cover should be cleaned as well and gently tensioned to put a bit more presusre on the contact rings.
Slide the handle ONLY onto the hose. Once in place the contact rings will be visible. Now you can work the handgrip cover back into place starting with the two tabs at the hose end below the contact rings. To seat the small fingers at the control valve gently click into place before reinstalling upper handle screws.

Tristar raptor pistol grip came off


If you are talking about the pistol grip handle on the end of the suction hose you can put a little bit of glue or sealant on the the pistol grip handle and insert it into the hose. Let the glue or sealant dry before using it.

My friend has a Tristar MG1 vacuum. The cord was


Chances are that there is the tiniest fray of one of the wires touching somewhere. Since you have already made a good repair with nuts and tape, feel the length of the cord for other bite marks where a puncture might short the cords. If you find such a site, **** the sheath lengthwise, tape the wires and replace them in the sheath, then tape the sheath closed.

Screw top not coming off


If you look under the black plastic cap (between the bottom lip of the cap and the yellow steamer body) you should see a circular hole in the pressure valve that the plastic cap is attached to. I used a flat blade screwdriver and a hammer to tap it anti-clockwise, the whole filler cap could then be removed.
Putting sone lubricant (plumbers lube or vaseline) stopped this happening again.
By the way, you just need to tighten the filler cap finger tight.
Hope this helps.

Possible engine blow-up in Tristar vacuum
Posted by skutch on May 28, 2008
5 days ago I was using the vacuum, and after 10 mins or so, I smelled a slight electrical burning smell and i immediately turned it off. i tried again yesterday to use it, and almost immediately after turning it on I heard a pop, saw what looked like blue flames somewhere inside, and again it smelled like it was burning. Of course I immediately turned it off and haven't touched it since. Seems to me the engine is a goner, but I believe it has a lifetime guarantee. So where do I get a new engine? I live in the Dayton, Oh area so if you know of anyone that services Tristars in this area I'd be most appreciative. Thanks!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

If you are getting an electrical burning smell it is your vacuum motor and you need to replace it. I am not sure if you have a lifetime warranty or not – most warranties are for 1, 2 or 3 years on electrical parts but I can try to give you a website or phone number to TriStar to see if they can help you on this matter. Question? How old is the vacuum and what is the dop? Listed below are some of the phone #’s that might be able to help you. 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.
