We can blow with our machine, but don't have the vac function. Not sure if we are missing a part. Have the bag, but don't know how to make use of it.

If this is a leaf blower you would just put the bag on the blowing end, taking the smaller tube off and the larger vacuum tube on the suction end. Good Luck

Bag needed changing there was no burn ing smell or strange noises before i changed bag after bag was changed it wouldnt start. the cord is new no fraying and vac is about 5 years old. didn


I'm not real experienced with this model vac, but I do know that many of the newer vac's are being manufactured with a small button or lever, whatever the particular brand of vac decides would best fit on their unit, that would be located somewhere around the edge of the bag door opening and would need to be depressed by having a bag inside in order for the machine to run. I would check for something of this nature to be sure that during the bag change that you didn't just miss putting it in quite right to depress the go button. Other than that, it's entirely possible that the switch died. If that's the case you'll need to bring it in to a vac repair shop for help.

How to Clean Oil Heaters - Shop Vac Preparation


So you think you want to clean that or oil fired furnace or oil boiler yourself. You have watched the service guy do it and really didn’t think that it looked all that hard. You stick the hose of your shop vac into the chamber and all the soot is broadcast all over the place! Yikes, what did he have that you don’t in there?

When cleaning an oil fired appliance you need to remember that the dust created by the unit is very fine and will just go right through the filters that are standard to most shop vac’s. You will have to go to the store and find some special equipment to catch all that fine black dirt. It is very easy to find if you know what to look for.

Most vac’s have a foam filter over a cage that holds the ball on wet/dry vac’s or the cage that holds the foam filter on just dry vac’s. When you go shopping for your new filters, look for the paper filter and ring that hold the filter paper over the cage. This filter is actually your second stage of defense. To really help out you need to get your first stage.

The first stage is a paper filter bag that installs over the intake to you tank. These bags come in different sizes depending on the size of your vac. You take the bag and carefully install it in the tank making sure that the mouth of the bag is seated securely onto the intake of the tank. This bag will catch the majority of the dust and make it very easy to contain and throw out also.

Now you are ready to clean your oil furnace or oil boiler like a pro. As long as you keep everything dry you will be fine. Dampness or water will make a hole in the bag and filter which will ruin any chance of filtering your air intake properly. Also remember that you are filtering through a fairly fine media and it will plug up rather quickly. You may need to change the bag and filter a couple of times to complete a job.

One final thing for you guys. If you are planning to use the shop vac that your wife uses for her everyday cleanups, you may want to rethink this. After you get done with it and have black soot all over the nozzle and such you will be sleeping in the doghouse if your wife goes to use it and ends up with black on something good of her’s. You have now been warned. Don’t blame me for anything that happens to you as a result of not heeding this warning.

My vacum will not pick up, it is spitting the dirt out?


Check for blockage.

Most likely place is in the tube leading up from behind the beater bar. While unplugged, remove beater bar & belt & check.

If you have a strong shop vac, remove beater bar, belt, and bag, applying suction to the tube in back of the beater bar will many times dislodge the clog with little effort, sometimes though it will take some fishing around with a stiff piece of coathanger wire or similar.

Normally when you can apply suction with the shop vac to the tube in back of the beater bar & feel suction at the tube were the bag connects, you know you've got it all and you should be unclogged. Put it back together and you should be ready to roll.

The unit comes on and the exhaust blows out however no suction at all. l placed a wet vac on the unit where the bag goes and all of the outlets pull some air. The unit is the cv350. Thanks.


there would be 2 things potentially wrong here...

1) the black rubber gasket is missing off the body where the pail goes onto the machine. If that is missing there will be no suction.

2) This is a little more complex but will also lead to the same problem. up above where the bag goes there, is a filter. It could be clogged, but if you are getting a lot of air blowing out of the unit, I think it is more the rubber gasket between the motor and the body. You can check for this by looking behind the little motor pre-filter there (if it is even there) and check the motor intake for the unit. It is probably blocked or partially blocked with the motor gasket. To fix this you will need some weather stripping or another motor gasket.

Good luck.

I have a Challenge GBV180 Garden Blower Vacuum. I can only get it to blow ..does this model vacuum and if so how do the bits attach ?


remove the blower tube by turning anticlockwise. remove cover from air inlet same way. attach large diameter suction tube to air inlet (has to fit correctly as this is where the safety switch is) attach collection bag to air exhaust opening (where you removed the blower tube from)

The vac function stopped.


Somewhere in the tube or impellor area, it is plugged with a piece of debris that is clogging the flow of air to the bag or outlet.

Need to know how to attach vac bag


The bag should fasten to the blower where the blowing tube comes out. (blowing tube is removed to install the bag, and a pick up tube is installed on the 'screen door') It should have a tightening strap or velcro to hold it in place.

What does the warning light with question mark mean on the Electrolux Epic 6500 SR canister?


It means to check the bag. Your bag is either missing or misaligned and has slipped past the little clear sensor or bag lockout plunger in the corner of the bag chamber at the door.
Remove the bag turn on the vac and push this switch, the vac should start when the switch is depressed. If not the internal switch inside the vac is misaligned or damaged. Please post back to confirm how you make out

I need to know how to change my kirby into a blower?


Raise the light assessory on the front of the vac. Remove the roller assembly by rotating the square dial as indicated by the arrows. Then you must attach the accessory that sort of looks like a 4 inch square open box to the front of the vac where you removed the roller assembly and lock into place. Next you remove your bag assembly by unsnapping at the top of the handle to the vac, then at the base of the bag assembly you must unlock the plastic base from the metal vac unit by turning it counter clockwise and then pulling off. Finally you attach the hose assembly where you removed the bag assembly and lock into place by turning clockwise (reverse of taking off bag assembly base). Put vac in neutral and power on. Now you will blow from the hose assembly.
