I have a new eureka vacuum AS1101 and the roller brush wont spin. The S belt doesn't look worn. When the clutch is engaged the second smaller toothed belt doesn't run. Are the larger and smaller pulley...


The answer is you small wheel that is burned or melted is a result of having the carpet height setting too low for surface being vacuumed. Because of that, it causes the brush assembly drive to work harder. The smaller of the two wheels has..had a piece of plastic to hold it against the shaft to allow it to turn. It will have melted off and will not spin. The belts and even the other larger wheel will work, but just not engage the smaller and allow the brushes to turn. The part needed does not sell by itself, you would need to purchase the on/off wheel assembly. OEM Part # 84708. It is about $30 on amazon shipped. new-eureka-vacuum-as1101-roller-brush-imoup3n5z40rufpnmkir3rab-3-2.jpg

I have a Rainbow E2 which I purchased in early October. My Power Nozzle is not working right. When I used it before, it pulled, now it barely moves on its own. I cleaned all the hair off of it and it...


Does the brush turn freely when you try to manually turn it?
Does it rotate when the power nozzle motor is on?
If not, it's most likely the belt that turnd the brush has broken. This will result in the brush not rotating, which in turn doesn't provide the pulling action and ease of use it's supposed to have.
If it's a new machine, you need to take it to the nearest Rainbow store for warranty repair. Disassembling yourself will result in the warranty being voided.

The blue should be for the lights and you can ty this into the black. The red should be the incoming for the motor to the fans. Some models are different and I strongly believe you have got to be talking about a ceiling fan and not a vacuum. Is this a test question? Because it is a darn good one if you do not mind me saying so however you might have not noticed to check or uncheck a box for the fans. Good luck.

I have a 11 yr old Hampton Bay ceiling fan with light kit. The pull chain to operate the fan broke (evidently inside of the fan) and I cannot figure out how to fix it. Do I have to take off the light...


I'm unfamiliar with your exact model but your description makes it very similar to the "King of Fans" branded models I fitted in my house twenty years ago and have fixed a few times. It might even be that yours are made by the same company as Home Depot source their Hampton Bay range from a variety of manufacturers including KoF.

You are entirely correct that you can access the pull chain once you have removed the lamp assembly. If it's just the chain which has snapped then it's normally straightforward to remove the short piece from the switch and install what's left onto the switch, but if your chain is the typical ball and link type and is more than a few years old then replace it with a new one if you can obtain the right size easily. They're not expensive, and the old one will have wear and tear making another failure highly likely. If either of the switches has failed (the pull switch or the fan direction switch) then they're also usually easy to obtain from any electronics store at low cost or you can contact Home Depot regarding spares, also check here and here. Your total repair cost should therefore be no more than a few £'s, $'s or whatever else you use locally: far cheaper and quicker than fitting a new fan.

I hope that my reply has been of use to you and saves you a lot of time and money. Please take a brief moment to rate my answer.

I can't recoil the electrical cord. What do I need to do?


Open the bag door, remove the bag (leave door open)and then with a hammer and a blunt instrument(wooden dowel) Strike the side rubber "bumper" rails towards the open door side of the machine from the back of the vacuum. You should get it started and then it should easily pull out from both sides. you can remove the bottom of the vacuum and remove the cord "guard" to allow the cord to go thru also. The back is held on by the union of these two halves by dowel pins(plastic nubs) Sometimes the "spring" mechanism gets jammed from over pulling. Just simply roll the smaller wheel to retract the cord manually. You could try spraying the rollers with a silicone or graphite type spray to allow free movement of the spring. Hopes this helps.

Can you put an 18 in. bar and chain on a poulan 2055 14 in ?


Have you considered a rental? Home Depot rents Makitas (Dolmar) with a 20" bar reasonably. Be warned running a Dolmar/Makita will make you question the value of your Poulan LOL. HTH

Nilfisk king 540: The cable is stuck. I can´t take it out


Tools required: Haxalobular screwdriver (Torx or 'Star'), Strong hands/fingers, flathead screwdriver.

Possible hazards: sharp edges (metal plastic), bacteria enriched dust/dirt.

Notice the black ring/skirt near the bottom of the unit...sit on the vacuum cleaner, and pull very firmly at the ring, which will begin to click and pull upwards, rotate around the unit pulling the ring up until the whole ring comes off and you can pull it off over the top of the unit.

Now, there will be a white plastic ring revealed around the unit, using a Flat Head screwdriver to pry the ring out of the grooves it sits in (pull it off towards the bottom of the unit as opposed to the intial black ring coming off upwards).

Now take the handle of the unit and give a firm **** upwards, the whole encasement will slide off in your hand.

You will now see the spring loaded cord retracter. The problem here is that the spring has become too losely wound back onto the larger spindle, or it is dirty.

Firstly pull the entire power cord through the outer shell that you removed (you will need to unscrew and remove the black facade that the cord goes through otherwise the head of the cord wont go through).

Then take the plastic cirlce cover off the smaller spindle (carefully as the wound tin spring could pounce).

Now you need to manually turn the larger wheel clockwise until it has no coil left on it, and the smaller coil now is full.

While winding, dont let the powercord wind back onto the wheel, let it sit to the side (there will be a bit of tangle which will go back to normal when we finish winding back the other way).

Once it is fully loaded onto the smaller coil, wind it back on to the larger coil again, but make sure it's loading on 'tight'. You can ensure this by keeping some pressure on the smaller spindle while winding (be carefull because the coil edge is sharp). Once the smaller coil is basically gone and there is just a small curved end of the coil, put the small spindle back on making the curved coil wrap around it.

Wind some coil back onto the smaller spindle so there is atleast one full ring plus a small overlap, around the spindle, or it may come off. Also, make sure that where the cord is coming out of the larger spindle, is pointing towards where it goes out the back of the vacuum cleaner, so that when you pull the cable it wont wind the wheel at all, otherwise it may wind some coil off the smaller spindle.

Proceed to put the unit back together, but before putting the white and black rings back on, test the retract button. I noticed the first attempt to put it back together that the external button had not lined up with the internal mechanism and it wouldnt retract, i had to open it again.

All done, it should now retract, but it will never be as strong as the day you bought it, but atleast you dont have to have the cord hanging round. Hope this helps.
