Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a 2 fluorescent light fixture in my bathroom. The right side light quit working. I took the starter out of the left side and put it in the right and it worked. Starter, right? I bought a package of 2 Leviton starters FS 2 15w. They didn't work. Thinking bad, I returned it for another package. Still not working. The original starter is a Sylvania FS 2. Is it possible to have FOUR bad "new" starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No make or model on it anywhere. Puzzling.

It is not likely that you had 4 bad starters.I assume you have more modern lights in it too(not 30 yrs old).Here is a link to Sylvania.It may be just that it requires certain something(who knows what)that only Sylvania has.It seems strange because they are all basically the same and a generic one seems like it would work.I also googled flourescent light starters and under one that talked about operation,it did refer to some older models.But like I said,it probably has newer lights so who knows what the heck.Well,here you go.You may also just want to call Sylvania and ask where you can find a replacement instead of paying $5 to ship $2 worth of parts.

Indicator light comes on but sweeper doesn't run.


it sounds like the motor is dead. The Light and the motor are wired differently so it is quite possible that the motor is dead and the light still works.

I TOOK THE PLATE OFF THAT CUTS THE HAIR BY REMOVING THE TWO SCREWS, THE CLIPPERS ARE NOT CUTTING LIKE THEY DID BEFORE I TOOK THEM APART. ANY SUGGESTION ON LINING UP THE SERATED EDGES?


Hi, hold the unit upside down and loosen the two screws. Now, slide the plate to the right and make sure that it is straight with the cutting teeth. Tighten lightly the left screw, then check for straight, then tighten lightly the right screw. Again check for straight. Once you have the straight actually straight, tighten the screws more firmly. Test the unit. If it does not cut right. Loosen the screws slowly and move the plate 1 mm to the left. This is a matter of small movements to get it just right. You may have to move the plate a few times. Always, the screws need to be loosened and tightened slightly so as to keep the plate straight.

A 40 W fluorescent lamp gives out more light than a 4o W filament bulb.explain whether the fluorescent lamp is actually using electrical energy at the same rate as the filament bulb??


The lamps are both using 40 watts of energy, but the fluorescent lamp gives more lumens (visible light measurement) than the incandescent.
Fluorescent gives at least 5000 lumens for 100 watts.
Incandescent gives 1750 lumens for 100 watts.
You can see that if you had a 100 watt incandescent, it would be 1750 and you would only need 35 watts of flourescent.

How do I change the belt on Eureka Pet Pal


Unlike most vacuums, this one the screws are on the top of your base. There are two screws one on each side. When looking at the front of the vacuum right side screw is located above the s in 12amps and on the left side screw is located above the p in pet. Now keep in mind it's not directly above the letters look about 2 inches up. Unscrew them, take cover off. Once you have done that pull up on the brush rod. Maybe tough if ur vacuum has a lot of built up dirt. Next put belt on metal prong then put on brush rod. Place rod back in its spot, gonna need little bit of muscle. Then put top back on and replace screws. Plug in flip bottom just to make sure brush is spinning. If u have followed steps this should work. I hope this helped took me forever to find the screws because I have always had vacuum with them on the bottom and internet was no help to me. Good luck

Bissell proheat turbo 2x upright cleaner -how do I reassmeble?



Yeah, it’s annoying that the manual doesn’t give more detailed instructions and drawings to help with this, because you do have to take the roller assembly apart sometimes to clean built-up carpet lint off the unit properly. If you don’t do this, I’d expect you’d have more problems.

I have a different model number Bissell Proheat than yours. Yours may have different parts or go together differently than mine, but I'll tell you how I do it on mine and you can try my way out and see if it helps you.

(In all cases where I use left vs. right or front vs. back, as when these terms are used with a car, I am facing the front of the Bissell. I am NOT behind the Bissell, where I would stand when cleaning carpet with it.)


Here's how I put it together. This takes much longer to describe than to do, once you figure out where everything goes and you get the hang of doing it!

Attach the left arm with the two silver rods (ONLY attach the left arm here-- leave the corresponding right arm, which looks like the left arm except it has no silver rods, off the bottom unit of the Bissell, for now) to the left side of the Bissell, with a silver screw with a built-in washer. The screw hole is on the back end of the arm and the arm dips down towards the front of the Bissell and holds the two brushes in position so that they can turn without striking the top of the underside of the Bissell or dragging on the floor.

Put a small silver washer on each long, silver metal post, where the roller brushes will go, and slide it all the way to the left.

Put the larger rubber belt around both metal posts, about halfway to two-thirds of the way down the metal posts.

Slide the brushes halfway down the metal posts and attach the larger rubber belt to the cog wheel on the left side of each roller brush. Then slide both roller brushes with the large rubber belt attached all the way to the left so that the cog wheels are against the inside of the left arm. As you move the roller brushes almost all the way to the left, you may be blocked from reaching the end until you carefully work the rubber belt around a plastic flange on the inside of the left arm, but do this and be sure the roller brushes are up against the inside of the left arm. Make sure the rubber belt is still on each of the cog wheels when the roller brushes are pushed all the way left. If you turn one roller brush, the other should turn, too, because of the belt attached to both cog wheels.

Put the small belt around the small cog wheel on the bottom unit of the Bissell behind the right end of the back roller brush, and also around the cog wheel on the right end of the back roller brush. (The right cog wheel on the front roller brush is the only one of five cog wheels without a belt, when everything is assembled correctly.)

Put a small silver washer on the right end of the silver rod passing through the back roller brush.

NOW attach the right arm, using a silver screw with a washer, to the middle screw hole on the right side of the bottom unit of the Bissell. The right arm should mirror the left arm, so that the two arms hold both roller brushes in position on the right side and straight across the bottom unit of the Bissell. It is normal for the roller brushes and arms to be able to flex up and down a bit, when everything is put together correctly. The built-in washers on the silver screws which attach the arms keep the arms and roller brushes in the generally correct position but allow them to flex.

Now using your fingers you should be able to slowly spin the roller brushes without the brushes contacting the top of the bottom unit of the Bissell and without dragging too low against the floor. Check one more time and be sure the belts are positioned correctly around four of the five cog wheels.

If everything seems right, attach the two side covers. These are not interchangeable; the left cover only fits on the left. The short black screw goes in the back screw hole, and the long black screw goes in front.

Then attach the front cover. It's important to be careful that the hooks on the front cover are inside the side cover holes designed to hold the hooks before trying to tighten the last screw through the tab on top of the front cover. If you aren't careful about this, it's easy for the front cover to be out of position or to break its tab.

Try powering up the Bissell and see if the rollers spin correctly. Remember that the handle must not be locked upright and the trigger must be depressed with the Bissell turned on before the roller brushes will spin. (Sometimes people complain that nothing happens with the unit turned on and the trigger depressed when the only problem is that the handle is in the locked upright position.)

Good luck!

I bought a ceiling fan from lowe's, got it home got ceiling fan up in the bathroom, when we put in the light one of the halogen bulbs does not work , also two of the cobalt blue glass covers are cracked...


If this is a new product and it is defective, take it back to Lowe's and insist on a replacement, talk to the manager if you have to. This site will only advise you on how to fix it.
