Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I recently took out a stand mixer that is probably over 50 years old. It belonged to my mother and I wanted to use it. It probably hasn't been used in at least 10 years. With some effort, I removed one of the beaters but cannot remove the other one nor can I even budge it. I have used WD-40 but it's not helping. It's a Westinghouse product. Any ideas? Thanks.

If you used WD40, you should have the unit inverted so the WD40 runs down into the beater socket.Use a small piece of wood and place it against the bottom of the beater and tap lightly with a hammer while pressing the beater release button/lever, just enough to break any crusty seal that may have formed. If this does not loosen it enough to remove, using two pieces of wood about 1"x1"x12" put them around the stem of the beater, above the beater cage and tap with a hammer while pressing the release button/lever for the beaters.
This has me a bit intrigued. Please let me know how you make out. All the best.

What does possessive noun mean


A possessive noun is a noun indicating ownership or possession. For example 'the story of the witness' can be turned into 'the witness's story'.
The possessive is shown by adding an 's to the end of a noun or just an ' after plural nouns already ending in -s. Examples:
the car of my mother = my mother's car
the teacher of our class = our class's teacher
the coats of the children = the children's coats
the covers of the books = the books' covers
the meeting of the bosses = the bosses' meeting

The possessive is also used as a shorthand for something that does not literally belong to that person or thing, it's used in place of 'of' or 'for'. Examples:
The ladies' room does not belong to ladies, it means that it is designated for the use of ladies.
A store that sells men's suits doesn't sell suits that belong to some men, it sells suits for men.
A book of Shakespeare's plays are not plays that belong to Mr. Shakespeare, they are plays written by him.

Dear Sir/Madam, My old faithful Hamilton Beach Mixer, now 60 years old, is still working but recently I was told by someone who looked at the motor that it needed repair or replacement. Is it still...


If the armature shaft is worn there might be a problem, but that would be about the only one, Bushes/bearings can be replaced as can brushes. If the armature shaft is worn, a fix can be formulated but it will require some engineering work. Come back to me if you require any more information on this repair,

No Power coming thru hose handle


It probably wouldn't help, it sounds like the switch. Have you tried pushing the reset button? (It's a little red button on the end of the power nozzle.)
