I emptied my Tristar A101 vacucum cleaner now the canister goes on but the power head won't turn on.


Check the connections of the wires going to the power nozzle and where it plugs into the canister

I'm looking for replacement parts for tristar sb ek-8005.steam buggie. I bought it many years ago on hsn. Thanks for your help! karen USA


Sorry for the delay in responding. I have done many searches and also contacted the maker of Tri Star vacuum products; they did not market the Tristar Steam Buggy.

Before you consider investing more money in your machine you may like to view this video:At this point the only source of replacement parts is likely the secondary or used market. If you search you will find some products offered in places like ebay. For example:

Trust this is helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

Rainbow SE vacuum cleaner has no power


Invert the vacuum cleaner without the water tray installed. With the machine unplugged, give the separator a spin clockwise. If it spins easily, this is a good sign. If the bearings are good on an SE, you should hear the faintest of rapid clicking sounds as you spin the motor. This is the sound of the brushes as the commutator segments pass under them. The brushes on SEs will sometimes hang up and not make proper contact; they are too precise a fit in their holders and the carbon dust they generate plus a tiny bit of moisture will cause them not to extend as they wear. When this happens, the brush tension spring overheats, relaxes, and it's time for new brushes and a service. Anyway, if you determine that the motor is turning smoothly (resistance or binding indicates bad bearings), install the water tray dry, plug the vac in, switch on, and give it a couple of bi__ch slaps with the palm of your hand on the side of the vac near the top. This can sometimes free up a stuck brush but the effect is likely not to last. It will, however, give indication of whether the machine might run or not after a fairly cheap repair (under 100 dollars).

Possible engine blow-up in Tristar vacuum

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.
