A bar magnet is permanently magnetic, thought not usually especially strong. An electromagnet is caused to be magnetic while energised by a power source. Many bar magnets are created by being subjected to an electromagnetic field.

I have a spin brush Conair infiniti pro and the brush stopped spinning. How do I fix it?


Replace the brush bar you'll have new brush bar better clean than old brush with new bearing which aren't available or worth the bother fitting, ps keep the filters clean makes a real difference to sucking power.

My Oreck platinum vacuum shuts off after a couple of seconds. Whenever I turn it on it works for 2 seconds then shuts off, any help?


Atek,
You may have received the wrong beater bar for your machine. Some of the Oreck's have an electronic sensor that detects the brush speed and the way they do that is to put a magnet embedded into the brush roll. Turn your vacuum over and spin the brush by hand and look for a metal dot about 1/4" in diameter. It should towards the end opposite of the belt. If you do not see that metal dot, you need to take the brush back to where you bought it and ask for the correct brush. If you ordered online then call them up and ask for a swap. Hope this helps!

Up and down light not working when using my sebo x4 not changing levelsthe magnet fell off found it


Look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74IxduzYTII
at about 8 minutes, 54 seconds. The yellow wheel with the belt has a magnet on its right hand side, and the grey wheel has a magnet on its left and side. The magnets are sensed by a Hall Effect detector which is the thing at the end of the circuit board.

Maybe the magnet you found needs to be glued back into the recess in the wheel. Probably it needs to be the right way round, so I would look for glue residue on the magnet.

Kirby vacuum-The beater bar is turning, but the light is not on. Is something else wrong?


Check to make sure the magnet on the roller is on the side with the coil (this activates the light). You may have installed the roller with the wrong ends in the opposite sides.

Green light kirby vacuum


The green light does not affect the performance of your vacuum. There is a small magnet in the brush roll that makes the light glow to show you the brush is spinning properly. If your light worked before you took the vacuum in for service you can look at the brush roll to see if it has been installed properly. The magnet should line up to spin at the spot where the green light is. If the brush is not installed properly or the wrong brush roll is installed the magnet will not line up with the green light.

My car toyota celica will not move from park to drive? The automatic shifter is stuck even after pressing on the break


GPS SYSTEMS HAVE A TENDENCY TO LOSE CONNECTIVITY TO SATILLITES BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER, CLOUD COVER, TUNNEL ENTRANCE, BAD OR NO POWER, BATTERY LIFE HAS BEEN EXPENDED, HAZARD OF ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE TO GPS SYSTEMS, AND IMPROPER VEHICLE MOUNTING AND HAND HELD POSITION. FREE SOLUTIONS 1. ALWAYS PLACE YOUR GPS DEVICE IN THE UPPERMOST PORTION OF YOUR VEHICLE SO THAT THE GPS SIGNAL MAY EASILY LOCATE YOUR DEVICE EVEN WHEN THE WEATHER IS BAD 2. KEEP YOUR BATTERY CHARGED ONLY WHEN IT NEEDS IT MOST AND AVOID CHARGING OFTEN 3. IF YOU OVERCHARGE YOUR GPS DEVICE, YOU WILL EXPERIENCE BATTERY LEAKAGE, WHICH CAN EAT AWAY AT YOUR CLOTHING, DESTROY YOUR DEVICE IN SECONDS, AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR VEHICLE SEATS 4. YOUR GPS DEVICE HAS A TENDENCY TO FREEZE BECAUSE OF THE SIM AND MEMORY CHIPS LOCATED WITHIN IT 5. YOU CAN FIX THE FREEZING PROBLEM BY REMOVING THE SIM CHIP AND MEMORY CHIP AND RESTARTING YOUR SYSTEM 6. OTHER FREEZE PROBLEMS OCCUR BECAUSE THE DEVICE IS COLD WHEN IT IS KEPT IN THE VEHICLE AND CHIP CREEK OCCURS WHERE THE DEVICES MICROCHIPS BECOME LOOSE AND TIGHTEND BECAUSE OF WARM AND COLDER AIR FLUCTUATIONS. IT IS BEST TO KEEP THE DEVICE IN A PURSE OR ON A TABLE WHERE IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO CONSTANT TEMP. CHANGE 7. PREVENTION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE IS BEST SOLVED BY: interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common

Beater bar will not turn


It's most likely that the belt that drives the beater bar has failed. You will need a model number and a brand name to find a replacement for it. Most appliance stores that sell vacuum cleaners will have the part. They are all different sizes but most are about half an inch wide.

Beater bar in my dirt devil vision wobbles around the center shaft. Took of beater bar and it sounds like sand in it when shaken. Can this be disassembled?


from your description, if your beater bar was wobblying, ther may be more damage to the base of the vac than initially seen. Dirt Devil has different number of warranties in number of years for thier vacuums. I would check with your nearest dealer. Lookup at dirtdevil.com

Weak pick up power


that's true!!! you've take that for granted because metal strips such as the hair clip will tend to deteriorate the engine power. Since the turbine of your vaccum cleaner uses dynamo to provide for spin and it has supply electromagnetic charge. Since there's a metal that has picked up, it will absorb the magnetic power of dynamo causing your engine to malfunctioned step by step.. Better check the engine to a liscensed technician to repair the problem.
