Question about Vacuums

Open Question

During re-assembly of my conair (model HC91RS) i noticed that my two blades do not line back up. The big blade sits evenly in it's space but the small blade is tilted slightly to one side. Is there any other means of aligning these two blades?

How do i replace the fan blade assembly which are broken in my eureka model the boss
thank you
lorne

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 different models of the boss by Eureka – there is a standard old style upright that the belt that the belt would unscrew from the bottom of the motor and you would have to remove the top of the vacuum cover to remove the main motor and gasket assm, and then the fan has a reverse thread on the plastic fan and you would unscrew the fan after removing the belt pulley. Then you would screw on the new fan, belt pulley, replace the gasket and re-install the motor. If you have a new style with a side mount motor you would remove the top cover, the motor would be in there sideways, un-screw the motor, remove the silver tape around the fan housing and un-screw the fan housing – same as above un-screw the fan from the motor, there is a nut on the end of the fan holding that on – (remember, the fan has a reverse thread) re-install the fan. Then the fan housing, replace the silver tape, and then screw down the motor and replace the top cover, then you can test. As always free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or contact your Eureka factory manufacturer listed below:

My Kenmore Progressive Whisper Belt canister vacuum is not "whispering." In fact, it makes excessive noise during operation - much more than the older Kenmore model that it replaced. I have replaced the...


Probably either bearings in the roller brush, a damaged fan blade, or the bearings in the motor. Take the roller brush off completely, and run the VAC without it. If it's much more silent, then the problem is with the bearings in the roller brush. If it's still noisy, then look closely at the fan that produces the suction, if you can. If you see any damaged blades, then you'll have to replace it. If it seems fine, then it's most likely bearings in the main motor that will have to be replaced. The bearings and the fan blade are NOT expensive parts, but the labor at a shop to change the main bearings would be kinda pricey.

Change the Hepa filter on Dyson dc15


Now for a proper answer haha,

Remove the bin and underneath you will find a large disc (filter holder) that the bin in sits on. This needs to be removed. Its not as easy as it should be either.

Lay the machine flat on a table and stand behind the filter and pull the two top tab points with some firmly place fingers. Once these tabs release the last bottom tab can be gently flipped off with a flat blade screwdriver from the back (behind the wand hose).

I like to peel out the old filter and clean it up with a razor blade. Once this is done you can fit a lower cost DC14 filter in and save some money. No peeling needed if you buy a DC15 filter for big bucks.

Good luck.

Brushes wont spin on the vax duel v 124 model and i dont know how to get to the belt to see if it has broken. There is no reset button on here that I can find !!


V124 /124a. Brushes not spinning. A clicking noise can sometimes be heard with this fault. It is likely that the brush drive unit has developed a fault. For the adventurous it is quite straightforward to repair. Ensure the machine is unplugged from the power supply and remove the tanks. Place the machine down on the floor and remove the brush bar. This clicks into place and is easy to lift out. Remove the screws on the base of the machine that hold the red cover in place. These are posidriv self tappers. Remove the clear plastic V assembly from the machine. This is clicked into place to make removal and replacement easy. Locate the turbine assembly and underneath the machine remove the screws that hold this in place. Disconnect the two small rubber hoses on the turbine assembly and gently pry out the turbine. The turbine can be opened up by removing the self tapping screws holding it together. Do this on a well lit bench or tabletop
Gently open up the turbine housing by lifting the black clips slightly. Keep the turbine level while you are doing this. Inside is the black plastic turbine blade. Remove the two gears and the small bearing and place to one side. Inspect the turbine blade for cracks or damage. If cracked the turbine blade can be repaired using a hot soldering iron to 'weld' the plastic. Ensure the repair is smoothed off by using a flat file. A tiny amount of light oil can be applied inside the turbine casing. Then reassemble the turbine blade, gears and bearing and clip the housing together. Replace screws in turbine housing. Refit turbine into the machine Replace machine screws, red cover. clear V assembly clicks back on. Test the machine to make sure that the brushes rotate. If the turbine is beyond repair a new one can be obtained as a spare part

How do I attach the replacement blade on my B&D jigsaw model 7504? I have the replacement blade but don't know how to attach it....


Locate the small hole with the screw inside it directly above the handle, which usually is in line with the blade. Loosen the screw with a flathead screwdriver. Once the screw is loose, gently pull the blade out from the unit .. this works with older Jigsaws for newer ones ,,Locate the release button just above the portal where the blade enters the body of the unit. Depress the button and gently pull the blade out from the unit.

Insert the new blade into the same portal that the old blade was removed from while depressing the release button. Ensure that the new blade is facing the same direction that the old blade faced. Once the blade is fully inserted into the portal, let go of the release button.

The clippers are back together but are cutting the skin and still dont sound right did i put them together right.


Did you remove the comb and blade only? If so, the comb (the part that doesn't move and is closest to the skin) should extend beyond the reach of the blade (the part that does move left and right). Nicking is sometimes caused by excessive pressure against the skin. A properly adjusted blade will resemble someone with an underbite (extended lower jar) with the comb part extending beyond the blade.

Most clippers have a clatter adjustment screw. Turn this until the clipper clatters (buzzes really loud) and then adjust it back until the clatter stops (but not too far or you will lose power and the blade will stall or cut slowly). Be sure to oil the blades. Mineral oil (from a drugstore) will do if you can't get shaver oil.

Good luck from Detroit, MI

The piece under the blades cracked can it be replaced with out buying the whol blender


You can try removing the blades and put apoxy in the crack and let it dry. Put the blade back on and make sure the blade does not rub by turning the blade by hand to see if it turns smoothly. Do all of this while the blender is unplugged.

Hi. I have an older fein multimaster msxe 636 II. The blades have round bolt holes. The new models have the star type holes. Can I use the star type blades since they are more available?


With respect to the above "answer", this tool has NO locking lever! It uses only a set screw to hold blades in place. It so happens that newer "star" mounting blades will fit into this tool easily, One must center the blade so the fingers of the star are outside of the raised circular surround of the hole. A washer (use a larger tapered one) and the set screw will then press the blade against the back surface of the bit holder. Tighten up this assembly, turn it on a cut away!

Change blade on old model Black & Decker circular saw


I drp a screwdriver through one of holes in the blade; that "locks the blade" when the screwdriver comes up against the sole plate. Works great for tightening as well.
