Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I'm doing an engine rebuild on a 1986 Mazda Familia (*** import) BFMR B6 engine 16 dohc turbo. I'have no idea where all the vacuum pipes go. It has a blow off valve and a turbo boost control fitted. The car was bought by my son, a typical teenage boy racer.

Hi, I have a Maximus 7015 and it doesn't work on any mode except on its turbo boost and with very poor suction. any idea? tks


Hi is this an upright or vac or a cylinder pull along vacuum cleaner. Either way have you checked the pipes which the longs 1 can be done using a broom stick pushing it down and clearing anything that is stuck in there. Please let me know what type the vacuum is so I can have a look at the picture of it on the web so I can help you out with your problem, also let me know the exact make and model of this vacuum makes it easier for me to find the correct image of your vacuum.

Just a guess but I had to disconnect my wet dry vacuum. Turn it counter clockwise to take it off.

My husband uses talcum powder liberally and we have a long haired white dog. I barely get 12 months out of vacuums. Have had (2) Miele Dog & Cat vacuums with additional filters attached - can you...


You can build a homemade soot trap like what oil burner service reps use. Please refer to the drawing. You start with a widely availabe bucket with an airtight lid (Home Depot sells one in their trademark orange color for example). Along with the bucket, you will need about 30 inches of PVC pipe - ideally you will get the diameter that matches your vacuum cleaner hose attachment. "Schedule 40" PVC pipe will work fine. This refers to the less expensive thickness of pipe- any home improvement store rep can help you with this, and if you bring in your hose and explain what you need to do they will gladly help you out! Finally, you will need a tube of silicone RTV sealant. Cut two holes matching the size of your PVC pipe into the lid of your bucket, and cut the pipe into two sections- one that will sit three to four inches from the bottom of the bucket, and one that will sit one or two inches below the lid. Put them into position and use the RTV sealant to hold them in place and also provide an air-tight seal. On the lid, label the side that has the long pipe INLET and the side with the short pipe TO VACUUM. This is CRITICAL so make sure you do it! Labels, paint, marker, crayon- whatever. Label them NOW!

Finally, you need a section of flexible plastic hose to connect your trap to your vacuum. Six to eight feet should work fine. You will have to be creative to make sure the connection between your new trap and vacuum are air-tight, but IMHO this adds a little adventure to the project... you want something easy to attach and remove, and by no means do you want to do anything that prevents you from taking your new trap off and using your vacuum normally. Hardware stores are bursting with all sorts of adapters and stuff! The same goes for the inlet side of your trap, but hopefully you matched the pipe up to your pickup hose to where it makes a nice tight fit and works without adapters.

After the RTV cures (about 24 hours) and you are satisfied that everything is in order, you are ready to use your soot/dust/fur trap! Fill the bucket about 1/3rd of the way up with water. Make sure that the long end of pipe is under water by about 2 inches. It is VERY IMPORTANT that the end that goes underwater (The INLET) is hooked to your pick-up attachment.... You should have labeled it INLET already.

The whole idea is that whatever your vacuum sucks up gets pulled underwater first, trapping it before it gets near the vacuum cleaner. It has worked for decades for oil burner service techs to keep furnace soot out of their vacuums, which would be destroyed after one or two uses otherwise.This will easily trap dog hair and talcum powder. Be forewarned that inside the bucket it will get very messy and it is vital that you clean it after every use.

Good Luck!

I can not get water to come out of the floor cleaning part of the machine.


This is most likely to be dirty pipes or filters or the water pump is faulty or the drive belt for the motor has broken.

Henry Turbo head not working


Check the belt. see if its off the roller or if it snapped. Also, their might a reset button on the power nozzle, look for that and hit it.

Power head stopped working could it be the switch? could it be the motor? thanks


If its an electric head switch it off and remove the screws underneath or if it has a slide out cartridge check that the brush isn't clogged with dust. Sometimes the toothed belt can come undone if there's an obstruction.

Power head on epic 6500 does not work, is there a belt?


This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.

Vacuum cleaner safety popped


I had same exact problem. It stopped sucking, just spitting out trash back. You need to clean all pipes, all of them. Then take canister apart and clean and wash top filter. It works like new now again
