My Hoover Linx handle broke.


Not sure what you mean by a broken handle, but if you mean the plastic is cracking where the handle connects to the main body than I have a suggestion. We have had this happen a couple times and I tried various fixes that did not work. However, recently I found a cheap product that will strength the handle to make it stronger than new. It called Fiber Fix tape (its on Amazon). Wet the tape and wrap the handle. It is a quick set epoxy in a fiberglass like cloth. Dries very hard. Not pretty, but it works great.

The plastic housing the handle locks into has cracked. The handle comes out when pulled back with little force.

The scubbers do not spin


Just fixed mine which had same problem. A little clear piece of plastic inside the middle of the handle had cracked. This piece holds the switch in place and is probably made to fail. Make sure you unplug the machine before opening it. If you take off the carrying handle you can get the top half of the machine to come off. Set it aside. Now look into the top of the bottom half and see if your switch housing cracked like mine did. It cracked where it screws down so there was nothing to hold it anymore. (The black switch unplugs, BTW.) If you are creative, this can be fixed by drilling two small holes to affix the switch to the clear part again. We also made a metal plate to hold down our clear piece. Happy fixing! :)

Ive a dyson DC05 in perfect working order, but the telescopic tube and the handle are broken, how much roughly should it cost to replace them? And does anywhere sell second hand parts?


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au your post doesn't say where you are from but if you are in Australia then the rod is about $50 and the handle $20. If you are looking for second hand then ebay is your best bet. Be aware though that it is a really common problem so if you are buying one second hand check that the latches and plastic end bits aren't cracked. Alternatively the dc05 can be changed to using normal 32mm vacuum handle and rods, it wont have the clips but it will be much cheaper.
Happy Vacuuming
Regards Alec

Stand up lever is plastic, broke when stepped on to release handle, can it be repaired, replaced with a better one, plastic breaks too easily?


The pedal release can be replaced but the base will need to be checked for cracks as well. if the base is broken most common is the socket the pedal release snaps into. some of the plastic parts have been made with better materials

Cracked hose for Bissell SpotBot


I found a site that carrys them, not sure if they are out because just as I was about to order one I decided to try and fix mine since the crack was right up next to the handle. http://www.svcvacuum.com/bissell/steamer_hose.htm
All I did was unscrew the two screws where the button is for releasing the water on the hand piece. I thin squeezed the clamp together to remove the water hose. Once that was removed I cut the hose and then PRYED out the part of the hose in the hand piece. I then cut the hose down where the crack was. Feed the "water hose" back through the hole in the handle (I heated it with a lighter just a tiny bit to make it soft and worked it through the hole which I just enlarged a slight bit) and with pliers work it back on. Don't forget the clamp. Next just work the outter hose back into the handle but make sure to use a glue or silicone sealer or both.
Even if you get a new hose Im not sure it will come with the handle. To connect the hose to the Machine part just push in that little plastic "dot" and pull out the hose at the same time. Then remove the old hose by the directions above. There is no need to remover the inner clear hose from the machine part, only the handle

Handle on kirby ultimate g won't stay upright


Just take the handle off, rermove the 2 screws on the front of the cover, remove the plastic piece on the back of the top, then remove the 2 screws and the top cover will come off. There are 2 screws holding the handle pivot on, remove those. Install the new pivot making sure that it alines with the transmissing on the left side, re-install the 2 screws and make sure they are tight. Then put the rest back together.

On the bottom of the Fantom Fury where it states: & quote; The United States and Canada utility patent....& quote; Now go to the far right end of this statement (the end opposite the spring, well I have a crack in the plastic which, when toggled, moves the entire plastic underside of the vacuum to move. In other words, I think I need an entire bottom plastic plate. The cracked area also makes the foot lever (which lowers or locks the vacuum handle) not work as the crack makes it impossible to work. I know you probably do not know what I am talking about but if you could just tell me where I could purchase the entire plastic plate of the bottom of the vacuum I would be very grateful. As of now, my vacuum cannot be used and I need it to be operational.
Thank you, Charlene H. Minor, Royal Oak, Michigan

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
If you call you local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or the Fantom Factory Manufacturer they can either send you the part or parts for the bottom plate or foot release or sometimes the entire base assm depending on what is cracked and broken, I am going to list a couple of places you can get these items, they need the Fantom Model # and color of vacuum and they can ship you the part(s). So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
