How do I installa new hose to the mortorized brush head on my shark lift waway


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Replacing your Shark Floor Nozzle Hose is very easy. Start by unplugging your unit to avoid any safety hazards. The floor nozzle hose's side that attached to the floor base of your Navigator can easily be pulled away. The other side of the floor nozzle hose has two tabs that can be pushed in while pulling it away from the base.

When installing, connect the floor nozzle hose to the canister first by pressing both side tabs while placing it until it click in its place. Then connect the hose to the floor base.

You can purchase direct your replacement hose and filters from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Won't switch from hose to base suction


Hi There,
Alec from VacuumSpot here. The problem is relatively common, there is a fault in the part that is called the undercarriage. It is a bit of a tricky one to fix but only requires one part that costs about $60 (Australian) from memory.

How to assemble the hawaiian breeze oscillating floor fan


I cannot find exact instructions but I did find a general guide to assembly. they are usually very easy to assemble.

A standing fan is a portable fan that has a set of three oscillating blades on a long neck. The neck, also called the pole or the leg, is mounted on the floor. Standing fans have evolved from their origins as noisy accessories that blew away papers in their vicinity to silent fans whose direction can be controlled remotely. When placed at a convenient location, a standing fan can distribute air evenly to the entire room. Its speed can be controlled, and many standing fans can be programmed to stop at a set time.

  1. Installation Requirements
    • The only requirement for installing a standing fan is making sure it is near a power source. The entire unit can be assembled manually with only a screwdriver. A single standing fan, either an oscillating or pedestal fan, is very simple to assemble for basic home use.
    Pole and Base
    • The first step is to lay the parts on a floor. Then assemble the pole on the base of the stand. This is very simple, because the grooves for the screws are already drilled, so the screws just need to be inserted and screwed in. Screwing the pole into the base of the fan is required on some models; on others, the pole and the base are molded together and no screws are needed.
    Motor and Fan Installation
    • One some fans, you have to install the motor and oscillating arm to the pole. This again is done by screwing screws into predrilled holes. Grooves for long screws are at the top end of the pole, where they attach to the motor of the fan. Once the motor is placed on the top of the pole, insert the screws in the predrilled holes and tighten the screws. The next step is to wire the three blades. This is done by taking the wires from the motor and joining them to the sockets in the pole. This finishes the assembly procedure.
      To turn the fan on, ensure that the wires fit securely together. A loose connection cannot not only hamper the performance of the fan, it can also lead to problems such as electrical shocks or burning wires.



I hope this helps

good luck

When machine is running the brush does not turn


You need a new belt. In order to change it, turn the machine compleatly upside down and place the head on a counter, handle on the floor.
There is a L shaped base plate to remove that has 5 screws in. Once the base plate is off, you see the brush roller and a silver shaft directly back from where the belt would ride. Remove the brush roller, place the new belt, Dirt Devil Style 5 ( see link below ) on to the shaft. Then insert the brush roller, so the belt is on the raised carved out section of the brush roller. Grab the brush roller at each end and stretch it till you are able to put the brush roller back into the base. Turn the brush roller backwards 3 compleat turns and the same forward to seat the belt.
Replace the base plate and you're done.

My son dropped the Hoover Floormate hard floor cleaner and a black piece with a spring came out. I dont know where it goes, and now the handle wont stay up.


From your description you have an issue with the pedal release in the base. this model is the original series, and I would not put too much money in the repair. not an easy cover to remove. check the base wheel assembly. the black pivot points break on these when dropped. If it is broke the part itself cost about $18. Cosider the overall performance and other repair items to determine worthwhile repair.

The brushes on my dyson cleaner won'tn turn. Can you help and tell me how to fix this please.


probably jammed with hair or fibre most commonly. The base comes off by means of a 1/2 turn anti clockwise of 3 'screws' on the base and the base clips off and on. Recommended you do this each time you use the cleaner. Alternately it may be a broken drive caused by build up of this kind

Suction through hose but not base


mine did the same when new, i checked all as above then i noticed that i could twist the round peice that will unplug) (right behind the carpet-bare floor knob) and then i got suction at the base to be able to vacuum the floors, then i notice that there was a peice of plastic broken off that actually pushed a black latch down when either pushing the handle all the way up or down this lets the round piece i'm talking about swap over from base suction to handle suction! hope this helps and everyone can understand what i'm talking about! you have to look close to see where the 2" by 2" piece of plastic is missing!

I need a new head or good second hand piece for my hero 1600 hover vacuum


The Hero 1600 should use 32mm type floor fittings which means on EBay you can pick up just about any type of floor tool which is suitable for most Hoover, Electrolux and Morphy Richards/Goblin appliances. This means you can use other branded tools and floor heads just by their fitment rather than the name.

EBay is a lot cheaper than having to order a brand new one from Hoover themselves. Alternatively try any floorcare repair shops who offer additional tools which can be purchased. 9 times out of 10 they will have a floor head which is similar to the one which has broken on yours.
