You will have to remove the top, the knob screws on but has a stop tab. Is the plastic below the knob ok, if not then you need to replace the top cover. After you replace the knob, then put the piston on from underneath, have it set to water only selection, then put the top cover back on.

How do you get the smart mix dial to line back up when replacing the top plastic cover on a bissell pro heat pet.


First, insert the black plastic control valve all the way into the hole. Make sure that the rounded face with the cut in it is facing toward the tall part of the chamber/hole where you inserted the valve. Try to line up the dial with where the threads would enter the cut in the valve. Hint: the hole in the center of the dial will go over the tall part of the chamber wall. Once you believe you have it aligned correctly, replace the plastic body cover and keep the dial out of the body cover. Just put in the screw on the side the dial is on, so if it is not aligned properly, you can remove the cover more quickly. Once you have the body screwed down, screw the dial into the hole and it should align easily with the valve in the hole. If not, remove the body cover, and try to realign the valve again. Repeat until you get the dial to screw in easliy.

I just did this today because I had to fix a customer's unit. It took me about 20 minutes or so to figure it out, but I finally got it. I was hoping your question had an answer to it when I got on here, but at least I got it figured out anyway. Hope this helps! That is if you still have this unit...

LSAYS I NEED NEW BAG, PUT IN NEW BAG & STILL LIGHT WILL NOT GO OUT & VACUUM WILL NOT TURN ON


Although this generally indicates that the bag is full, it may be caused by other problems. If you have fine dust in your area, the bag may seem like it's not full, but the pores in the bag are clogged so the vacuum will shut off as if the bag is full. This can be partially solved by setting the dial on top to the smallest dot.
The problem could also be caused by a dirty afterfilter. This filter is located beneath the tool caddy on the back of the machine. Access is gained by pressing the tab on the back of the machine and lifting the caddy. If dirty, replace it. If you don't have a replacement, check to see if the vacuum will run without it. It should if there is not other problem causing the vacuum to not run.
Third, try detaching the hose, turn the machine on to see if it runs. If it does, place your hand over the in port. If the vacuum shuts off, the problem is most likely a broken, worn, or clogged Control Valve Assembly. This is the part the dial connects to. This is a problem that should only be repaired by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. If you have been using generic "Made to fit Electrolux" bags, the motor and interior of the machine should be cleaned. This is worth doing as there should be a long "life" ahead for the vacuum. Periodic maintenance should be done.
You can find the nearest store using the below link.
It could also be caused by loose connections, worn or broken switch/es, broken wires, or bad motor. This can be narrowed down at the shop.

We have a dyson dc14 and the beater bar stopped turning, we cleaned the bar off and checked the belt and it's not broken, I know I called Dyson a year or two ago and they told me how to reset the beater...


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Check that the brush control dial is in the centre position when the machine is locked upright. When you release the head and pull the handle back this dial should mopve forward to the on position. Once here, the brush bar should turn.

If this doesnt resolve the problem, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

How to change belt on Hoover DM6227T


Hi Diane
There are two options here; Go to the Hoover UK website and download the user manual (http://service.hoover.co.uk/manuals/Manuals.aspx?Section=6) and add in the DM6227 code and number without the T letter. The pdf downloadable (and free) user manual will upload to your computer.

Or follow this method:
There are two rear screws on the top of the hood of which you'll have to swing the handle all the way down to reveal both screws at the back of the top hood. Undo these screws and put them in a safe place. Then gently prise off the main control selector height dial and the top hood should be able to pop off easily. Then you'll main roller brush should be revealed as well as the broken belt.

Once the belt is removed, clean the brush roll of any threads or hairs that have stuck the bristles down. Then fit new belt, align the roller bar properly including the new drive belt and then refit the top hood back on, snap fitting down, two screws in and gently refit the control dial height adjuster back on making sure the front raised part of the dial knob is facing the Hoover.

Anything else don't hesitate to contact.

How do I change the belt on my Kirby G 2000 Limited Edition?


Lift the head two pedal clicks off the carpet.
Lift the headlight and you will find a silver thumb dial to remove the carpet head. At the front of the head there is a square dial which you must rotate to release the belt if not broken. Rotate the square dial , then release the silver thumb dial under the light housing and the head will detach.
Flip it upside down to expose the brush and open the grate covering the brush. Note on either end there are colored leveling blocks for the brush. Reinstall with same colors showing.
Clean any hair and thread from the brush roll and insert new genuine belt. reinstall in opposite order, Be sure to turn the square dial backward to align the belt in a twist pattern before reinstalling the head onto the vac.Then lower onto carpet with pedal.
