My old Samsung CRT TV has strange blue dots on the top left corner. Is it because it's next to a speaker? when I move it the dots go away after a while.

Yes, speakers will cause the picture to magnatize amd will cause this distortion. Keep the speakers at a distance to prevent this from happening.

New bag indicator will not reset causing bare floor mode not to work at all and mode 2 not to vacuum dirt properly


Your top motor (suction motor) isn't running. Your vacuum has two motors in it. The top motor is the suction motor that runs on the first switch position and the bottom motor (brush motor) turns on with the second possition.
It could be the switch.If it isn't the switch, the only other thing it could be is the motor itself.
To check the switch, unplug the vacuum and then take the three screws out of the back of the handle. If you are comfortable with electricity, jump the black wire and the blue wire togeather and plug the vacuum into a electrical outlet. If the motor dosen't run, the problem is with the motor. If the motor runs, the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. You can get one at most any vacuum shop.
The motor could be bad or the carbon brushes can be stuck with dust. This is more involved and I recomend taking the vacuum to a vac shop that works on the "old" Electrolux vacuums. The new name for the "old" Electrolux is now Aerus Lux but you would probably get it repaired less expensively at another vacuum shop.
If you want to go into the motor housing you'll have to take the big screw out of the back of the handle and pull up on the handle to remove it. Next, remove the four screws holding the top half (motor housing) of the vacuum. Two screws on the back and two screws to the front inside of the bag housing. You'll need a long #2 phillips screw driver. Then pull up on the bag housing with a side to side motion.
With the housing removed, you will see the motor and can lift it out.
Check for any bad winding. You can smell them to check if you can't tell by looking at them. If they are burned, you will need to replace the motor.
To check the brushes, you will need a 5/16th" socket to remove the two bolts on the top of the motor and lift the top bracket with the carbon brushes off and see if the brushes move freely. If not moving or not long enough to touch the top part of the motor with the copper bars (the comutator) it would be best to replace the motor.
To reassemble the vac just reverse.
This is a long and difficult prosedure and I reccomend that you take the vacuum to a repair shop that works on the Electrolux.

DC16 charger output 28VDC Battery 23.6VDC only runs 1-3 sec what is wrong


Hi Rene,


I am sorry to hear that your DC16 handheld seems to have a short runtime.


This issue is generally the result of the filters needing to be washed or not being seated properly in the machine. If the machine is being used regularly, the filters should be washed monthly otherwise it will impact the performance of the machine.


To inspect the filters follow the steps below:


Remove the canister and separate the nozzle from the main body of the machine by pressing the silver button on the top of the machine.


Remove the pre-filter.


There are two portions to the washable pre-filter a blue sponge and a white scrim that has blue plastic.


In the lower right hand corner of the blue plastic is a small silver disc. Opposite of the small silver disc is a hole that should slip onto a molded plastic post in the main body of the machine.



While holding the handle of the machine in your right hand locate and lift up on the small "lip" on the left-hand side of the main body where the vents are.



The rectangular blue sponge is your post motor filter.


These filters should be washed once a month in cold water (no soap) and left to dry at room temperature for 24 hours or more.


If any gray is visible on any part of the filters they need to be washed.


When replacing the pre-filter into the machine it is important that the blue sponge face away from the motor and the small silver disc on the white portion be positioned in the lower corner of the main body.


If the steps above do not fully resolve the problem, please call us directly at 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1-866-693-9766 (US).


Best wishes,

Jessica

Drive not working on my hover sweeper handle seems very loose


How to Change Actuator on Hoover Self-Propel vacuum Cleaner - Step by Step This is a notorious problem for the Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled Models. What happpens is that the handle of the vacuum that controls the transmission is controlled by an actuator arm that is attached to a cable that runs down through the machine. The poor design of this self propelled system is design in such a way that if you pick up the vacuum using the handle (this is natural way to do it, I'm guilty of this as well), it puts too much strain on the actuator arm that controls the self-propelled mechanism, and causes the nut, washer, and screw to strip right out of the actuator arm. This explains why your handle is so loose. You may verify this by looking at the gap between the upright body, and the lower agitator housing, right where the vacuum pivots when you step on the handle release pedal. You should see when you move the handle up and down that the cable and nut are the only parts moving, and you should be able to see where the nut did sit inside of the actuator arm before it was stripped. The good news is that this is a relatively inexpensive part, and the repair is really not that difficult.

I will explain step by step, and include pictures so that you may see how to replace the part that's broken.
Always be sure your vacuum is unplugged from the electrical outlet before performing any kind of service!
Tools and materials:
Torx bit or driver size T-25
Flat blade screwdriver
Phillips screwdriver
Actuator arm – Hoover part number 43143046

Here's the picture of the part that probably needs to be replaced.
hoover-self-propel-fix-7-300x132.jpg
Step 1. Place your vacuum cleaner upside down with handle resting on the floor and brush roll housing resting on a work bench.
Remove 4 screws from rug plate and set rug plate aside.
hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-1-300x225.jpg
Step 2.
Remove power drive belt, brush roll belt and brush roll.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-2-300x225.jpg
Step 4.
Remove 6 screws as shown. Also remove duct hose cover and small plastic section that was under brush roll in upper left corner.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-3-300x225.jpg
Step 5.
Place vacuum right side up on top of work bench with handle all the way back. Using a flat blade screwdriver; gently pry the top cover away from the bottom housing in the area shown by(#1) arrows. Leave the 2 adjustment knobs(#2) in place.

hoover-self-propel-actuator-fix-4-300x225.jpg
Step 6. If the self-propel adjustment cable HAS NOT broken away from the actuator arm, proceed as follows; mark the position of the cable(#1) in relation to the cable retainer with a black magic marker to avoid having to readjust the cable position. Remove the screw(#2) (usually a Torx T-25 size screw) and cable retainer. Next, using a flat blade screwdriver; slide the ‘C’ ring (#3) off the metal post. Bend the metal bracket up off the post just enough so you can lift the damaged actuator up and off the post. Slide your new actuator arm back over the metal post. Slide the ‘C’ ring back over the post.Lock the self- propel cable back in place with screw and retainer. Test to ensure the power drive is adjusted correctly; CAUTION, YOU ARE ABOUT TO COME VERY CLOSE TO MOVING MACHINERY, NO NECKTIES, NECKLACES, LOOSE SHIRT TAILS,UNACCOUNTED FOR TOOLS OR CLUMSY FINGERS ARE ALLOWED FOR THIS NEXT STEP!!! Reinstall the power drive belt, plug your vacuum cleaner back in and turn it on. Check to make sure the handle is in the neutral position; observe that the power drive is NOT moving. Push the handle slightly forward. You should see the power drive wheels move in the forward position. Pull the handle back, you should see the power drive wheels move in the reverse position. Some finer adjustment may be necessary.
If the power drive cable has broken away from the old actuator; just try to get the new actuator arm as straight as possible. Using the handle and while observing the cable moving back and forth through the retainer area; move the cable all the way forward, then pull it all the back, try to gauge where the middle of the forward and reverse position would be and lock the cable down. Perform testing procedure as in previous paragraph. Again, some fine readjustment may be necessary.

Wiring diagram s3755 hoover


Today I shortened my hose by 4" to get around a tear problem. You can use an Ohm meter to find the right 4 wires. When looking from the top of the canister with the hose heading to your left, the wires should be:
White (furthest connector away from you)
Black - to the switch
Red
Blue
With the Red and Blue going to the speed con trol curcuit board.

How do you put a Hoover runabout belt on vacuum


I found this on another site and it worked for me. RonL

Looking at the brush, remove the two screws from the black plate holding the brush. There are two clips that holds this plate once you remove the screws. This should be easy to remove with a flat type screw driver. Now is the tricky part to remove the top cover of the vacuum so you can access the compartment to put the belt on. The whole top part of this vacuum comes off. If you look above the part where black plate was, there are two more clips on the top left and top right hand corner. These two hold one end of the top cover. It is not as simple as pushing the clip to one end to slide out. You have to find a gap between the edge of top cover and bottom structure(right next to each clip) and shove the flat screw driver in and push the top cover away from the bottom structure and push down the top cover. You will notice that there are invisible hinges between the two which locks in the top cover.

Do the same procedure for the bottom right and left edges(right next to each end of the brush) of the vacuum and separate the two(bottom structure and top cover) out using the flat type screw driver..

Hoover brushes wont turn


Is the shaft on the brush block or did it break off, if it did, replace the brush block. On the top, left rear corner is a lever that moves baack or forward depending on the handle being upright or tilted back for usuage. Is it moving? If not then you have a problem there. Otherwise if the square hole doesn't move when it is turned on, and the lever is switch to the on position, then replace the turbine.

Hoover u5209-906 upright


1. You have to lay it on its front so you can unscrew the two screws in the underside (these are on the plastic panel covering the brush). There are also two holes for you to use a screwdriver in right next to each screwhole. Lever the plastic tabs in the direction indicated next to the holes (I think it is towards the motor). This case should then click up and away N.B. There are 3 tabs fixed into the cover on the front edge of the vacuum head. Be sure you don't snap these off.

2. You then need to use the foot pedal at the back of the vacuum to lay it flat and using a flat bladed screwdriver lever the top cover of the head away from the frame on the two back side corners and across the front of the head. The top case should now be able to come off.

3. The belt should now be able to slip off the motor spindle and off the brush.
Repeat the procedure in reverse once the new belt is on.
Cheers.
