Howdy. It very much depends on the brand and country of manufacture, but you can sometimes find a plumbing or electrical conduit part at a hardware store to work for that.
Otherwise, you are in the hands of the lamp manufacturers and that does not usually turn out well as they mostly have NO customer service policy at all.
If you are able to take the relevant portion of the lamp to a good hardware store, they will help you invent a solution. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

The hose is sucking up but the bottom doesnt...


Why have you posted this question twice on the same day?

If you have taken the bottom end of the machine apart, you might not have reassembled it correctly so that the path to the floor (base) plate is obstructed when the vacuum cleaner body is laid back, otherwise:

You have either a blockage in the section of the cleaner in the vicinity of the short flexible hose and the floor (base) plate or the the short flexible hose has become detached at one or both ends.

1. Stand the machine upright with the beater bar in the "off " position. Machine switched off but plugged into the mains outlet.
2. Lay machine on its left hand side. You will see the short flexible hose uppermost. Check that it is attached at both tends and has not split or cracked. Check for obvious visible obstruction inside.
3. Remove the floor (base) plate by releasing the three plastic clips with a quarter turn anti-clockwise. Lift floor plate forwards and check no obstruction. Replace floor plate. Stand machine upright on floor.
4. Press two plastic clips to release the inspection cover, on bottom right hand side of machine (when standing behind it). Look into the hole: you will now be looking down into the U-bend that leads to the hose. Switch on the machine: full suction should be at the hole on the side of the machine (otherwise the hose would not have worked). Switch off.
5. Lean the handle and machine body backwards, as though you were going to use the machine on the floor. The hole to the hose now becomes covered and you will be able to see into the short flexible hose that leads to the floor plate. Check for obstruction. Replace inspection cover.

If there's no obstruction and the flexible hose is sound and attached securely then the machine will work - there's nothing else to check.

I amhaving trouble with the thread brahing and I don;t know if it is the tension. Which way should the pobbing turn right or left and how do you set the tension For my Singer sewing machine


Check the upper threading and make sure it is threaded correctly. When you pull on the thread before it goes through the needle does it give a bit or does it break? If it is breaking when you pull then the tension is way too tight or it is threaded incorrectly. Make sure it isn't looped around some guide along the line too.

For the bobbin thread... when it is in the bobbin case outside of the machine dangle it by the thread. It should hang there until you flick your wrist a bit, which should cause some thread to release and drop the bobbin down towards the floor a bit. (If it just pulls out right to the floor it is too loose). Most bobbin tension is tightened by a small screw on the bobbin case near where the thread comes though. Breaking thread would not be from the bobbin thread being too loose. Too loose would cause looping on top side of the stitch not breakage.

Make sure the bobbin is in correctly. You should feel and hear a slight "click" when the bobbin goes in correctly.

How to assemble the hawaiian breeze oscillating floor fan


I cannot find exact instructions but I did find a general guide to assembly. they are usually very easy to assemble.

A standing fan is a portable fan that has a set of three oscillating blades on a long neck. The neck, also called the pole or the leg, is mounted on the floor. Standing fans have evolved from their origins as noisy accessories that blew away papers in their vicinity to silent fans whose direction can be controlled remotely. When placed at a convenient location, a standing fan can distribute air evenly to the entire room. Its speed can be controlled, and many standing fans can be programmed to stop at a set time.

  1. Installation Requirements
    • The only requirement for installing a standing fan is making sure it is near a power source. The entire unit can be assembled manually with only a screwdriver. A single standing fan, either an oscillating or pedestal fan, is very simple to assemble for basic home use.
    Pole and Base
    • The first step is to lay the parts on a floor. Then assemble the pole on the base of the stand. This is very simple, because the grooves for the screws are already drilled, so the screws just need to be inserted and screwed in. Screwing the pole into the base of the fan is required on some models; on others, the pole and the base are molded together and no screws are needed.
    Motor and Fan Installation
    • One some fans, you have to install the motor and oscillating arm to the pole. This again is done by screwing screws into predrilled holes. Grooves for long screws are at the top end of the pole, where they attach to the motor of the fan. Once the motor is placed on the top of the pole, insert the screws in the predrilled holes and tighten the screws. The next step is to wire the three blades. This is done by taking the wires from the motor and joining them to the sockets in the pole. This finishes the assembly procedure.
      To turn the fan on, ensure that the wires fit securely together. A loose connection cannot not only hamper the performance of the fan, it can also lead to problems such as electrical shocks or burning wires.



I hope this helps

good luck

How do you make a light bulb light up with a power cord, battery,and light bulb?


unless you have a DC light bulb you can't. But if you take one lead from the wire and connect it to the center base of the bulb and one lead to the side post or threads and then connect each lead to the battery, one on the positive side and one on the negitive side

Floor attachment starts (green light) and then, almost immediately stops (red light). I have cleared all built-up dust in the unit, but no change occurred as a result.


Step on the blue lever at the base of the floor attachment to separate it from the long wand. Sometimes there is a clog inside at the base that needs to be cleared. Good luck.

My dyson dc17 animal will pick up via the hose attachment but there is no suction when you use the regular vaccuum on the floor - you can hear the difference in the suction once you put the floor part down...


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Check that the brush control dial is in the centre position when upright and then moves forward when the head is released. If the brush bar is still not spinning when switched on in the vacuuming position, check the base for blockages and remove any threads or hairs from the brush bar as outlined in your user guide or on our website.

If you are still having difficulties, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Dyson upright, no suction at bottom in carpet or bare floor mode


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the machine is blocked. with the machine switched off, check the base of the machnie by removing the soleplate and clearing any obstructions. With the soleplate removed, you will be able to check the internal hose and clear any threads or hair trapped around the brush bar.

If you would like a step by step guide, visit the Support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

I hope that you find this information useful.

The Clog light is on my Sebo Essential G1 vacuum


If you are sure the base is clear, and that the flexible hose and attachment tube are clear, the only other common place for a blockage is the swivel neck that joins the base to the bottom of the dust bag housing.  Here's what to do:
Press the housing release button (front bottom of bag housing) and lift off the bag housing from the base. This can be quite hard (three or four hands would be helpful) but be sure to lift straight. When you've got the bag housing off, release the foot pedal and lower the swivel neck to 45 degrees.  Check inside the swivel neck channel closest to the foot pedal, and clean it out as necessary.

If this doesn't work, please post again and I'll see what else I can do...  If it does help, please rate me!
