Spray trigger stuck?


Hi there! If the spray trigger is stuck try removing and replacing the handle. Remove the two screws that attach the handle. Slide the handle off. Inspect the two rods inside of the handle for damages. Make sure both rods are pulled down. Replace handle and two screws. If the spray trigger is still stuck or if the rods were damaged in any way a replacement handle may be needed. If so I have included a link where you may purchase a replacement handle. Search Results Good luck!

The TechDrive Pedal on my Kirby G6 fell out of the back of my vacuum cleaner. I removed the screws from the metal plate one the bottom to try to see if something had come a loose. Can you send me a diagram...


This requires removal of the transmission assembly and replacement of the pedal assembly - it cannot be repaired. The handle and upper motor shell must be remove to access the transmission assemby. There are two screws in front, and two under the plastic switch plate.

Where does the static wire go in the handle. It fell out and now I am having trouble getting it back in. I fixed the cord myself. Model XL2100rh


If you look closely, you can see a sahllow groove along the inside top of the handle. The curved portion of the static wire fits in that. One end fits in a hole just below the switch, the other end just goes down inside the metal post.

Power Cable wires exposed where it enters handle


Part of your question has been cut off by the FixYa system, but I guess you say the wires are exposed where the flex enters the handle. To dismantle the handle, first remove the handle from the machine and, of course, be sure the flex is not plugged in to the mains power.
Look on the back of the handle - you will see a small screw. Undo that screw and remove it, then you will be able to pull the plastic part of the handle out from the metal part. NOTE: it does not come very far out - just far enough so you can separate the two halves of the plastic part. When you've done that, it's only a matter of removing the damaged part of the flex (noting how the wires are routed inside the handle), stripping the remaining flex to match the bit you've removed, and wiring it in. Fit the two plastic halves together again (one hooks into the other at the top), push them down into the metal part and refit the screw. Job done!
If you need more help, just post a reply here and I'll get back to you soon. Good luck!

I want to release flex from sebo x4 vacuum cleaner to cut back...


On the underside of the handle, there's a small screw close to where the metal and plastic parts join. Undo this screw. This will allow you to pull the plastic part out of the metal part - not very far, but just far enough so that you can separate the plastic part into two halves lengthways. That gives you access to the switch, and you should find the rewiring job and reassembly straight forward from there on.
I hope this helps. If you need more, just post a reply and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I do value feedback, so please remember to rate this answer.

How do you install the switch for the oreck vacumn properly?


The Orecks I have worked on have a plastic handgrip area surrounding a metal handle rod.
Undo the handle screws and the handle should separate like a **** shell revealing the switch and harness. Pull gently on the wire terminal with a pair of needle nose pliers not behind it.
Be careful not to flex the switch contacts as they may break off. reinstall any insulation around the switch before reasembling.

I can't figure out how to hook up hose attachment to dyson 07


You have a reversible wand on the DC07. You have to separate the wand from the hose first, then turn it around and reconnect it. Once that is done you will be able to use the attachments on the end of the wand. You can also connect your attachments to the hose.
To separate the wand:
1) Take the wand off the back of the machine
2) Place one hand on the Handle and one hand on the gray flexible hose.
3) Push the flexible hose down. You will see a long metal rod appearing. Push until the hose clicks into place at the bottom of the metal rod.
4) You'll see a half-moon shape button with a picture of a lock on the solid gray plastic part at the top of the hose - push it, this will separate the wand from the hose.
5) Turn the wand around
6) Push the purple wand cap with the holes in it back, it exposes a short dark gray pipe, about an inch in length
7) Connect the hose to the short pipe
8) Attach your tools to the top of the metal rod and have fun

HOSE ATTACHMENT WILL NOT SEPARATE FROM VAC BODY.


The hose is getting twisted on the machine and so the wand gets stuck inside it.

1) Pull the wand out as far as you can - if you can pull it out completely, separate it from the hose and apply baby powder to the
metal rod. Stretch out the hose and unwind it. In the future, separate the wand and unwind/stretch the hose after use.
2) If you can't pull the wand out all the way, remove the canister/dirt bin from the front. Look for a gray button with 7 vertical
lines/grooves on it (it'll be just above the ball on the opposite side of the bottom hook that you wind the cable around).
3) Push the button and at the same time pull the hose out from the bottom by pulling on the hook - this will release the gray hose
from the machine. Take it off of the machine if possible (the bottom of the wand may stop you from doing so - if it does, try to pull
the wand out until you can release the hose from the bottom)
4) Pull and stretch the hose out and pull the wand at the same time - separate the wand from the hose and unwind the gray hose and
stretch it out. Rub baby powder on the metal rod of the wand and in future, disconnect the wand from the hose and stretch/unwind the
hose after every time you use the wand.
