Question about Conair Health & Beauty

1 Answer

Hi. I have a Conair ion shine 1875 that still works very well, but inside the intake cage there is a lot of dust/lint stuck on the flat plastic surface. I can't get a brush near it. Does the housing come apart to clean?

    OK guys, I've done what you recommended many times in the past. What I am talking about is dust inside the plastic housing, beyond the foam filter. The housing looks like it may open on the seam running around the housing that covers the motor. There are silver plastic caps on either side that I gently have tried to move, with no success. Just tell me whether or not it opens the case so I can clean it. If not, I'll just have to buy something to replace it and it won't be something I can't service.

A hinged filter is located at the back of the hair dryer. It is easy to open and simple to remove the filter for cleaning. The filter feels like layered nylon netting; lots of holes for air circulation. Just remove and rinse the filter in clean water. Don't stretch the filter while cleaning it. Let the filter fully dry, and then replace it in the hair dryer. (There are no instructions for cleaning the filter. I have an air cleaner with a similar filter, and this is how I clean it.)

let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    I doubt if that could be opened. However, give me a couple of days and i could try to find out. You are most welcome to ask an other expert in the meanwhile.

Where can I find an online instruction manual for the Yellow Bird Conair Pro 1875 watt blowdryer, please?

I found a list of all their instruction booklets for hair dryers (some are 1875 watts) but they don't have the Yellow Bird:
You could try calling Customer Service at 1-800-326-6247, or ask for the instructions via the online form here:

Good luck, and I hope this helps!

Wires burned inside handle.

This is most likely caused by a short circuit. It's dangerous to use as it could go on fire or melt the handle and electrocute you. It's best to get rid of it and get a new one.

My admiral dryer heats and tumbles but isn't drying the clothes

Hi, hope this helps; check the exhaust line (the plastic flex-line) behind the dryer for possible blockage (lint, dust, etc). I even had a bird nest, outside the house, that needed to be cleared-out (can buy cheap plastic "cages" to install on outlet to stop bird nesting in the outlet).

LVW - 5005

Remove the cover of LVW and access the DVD assy,unscrew the 4 screws holding the DVD assy to the LVW bottom,remove the top and bottom shield (also 4 screws)and remove the top black plastic cover (4 screws).You will access the DVD spindle.Remove the disk if you still have a disk stuck inside.Visually check the spindle sticky rubber ring,most likely some sticky material migrated on top of the rubber ring and your DVD was stuck on it. Clean the best you can with a cleaner and a non lint cloth.I used a cleaner/degreaser for electronics.DO NOT POWER your LVW BEFORE reinstalling the black plastic cover.There is a laser inside !!! You may now try and if the drawer opens and closes, reassemble everything opposite way you disassembled.
