Question about Vacuums

Open Question

We have an old Proctor Silex ironing board model 62036. One of the legs detached underneath the board and I'm trying to figure out how the folding leg mechanism works so I can weld the leg back on and have the board operate properly. My wife insists we fix this ironing board as they "don't make them like this anymore..." Thanks.

How do you replace the bag on a Hoover Elite 200?


I had the same problem and just figured it out myself. Detach the clamp (attamched to the bag) from the handle. Then slide the bag out from the clamp either left or right. The cloth bag then opnes and you can replace the actual bag inside. Hope this helps.

On my kenmore central vac no power unplug unit plug it back green light comes on but try turning vac on green light goes off again .


Please clarify that we are talking about the central vac LED/switch panel panel and plugging it into a 110 V wall receptacle.
If I understand when you unplug from the power source ,then plug back in the green LED comes on, looking normal ? But when you manually activate the switch on the motor housing of the vac itself the vac does not start and the LED goes out, so no green or red LED at that point?
If this is the case , Kenmore CV's built approx 5 years ago (MADE by EUREKA) and prior had a circuit board with attached cord (as opposed to detachable) which was prone to relay failure. There were several symptoms, most common was that the relay on that switch panel /circuit board would fuse on and the vac would continue to run when the hose was detached from the wall.However some I worked on from that era had exactly the same symptom you describe. If your unit is between 5 and 10 years old and this sounds accurate, you can unscrew this curved side panel relay with one philips screw. Inside on the PCB will be an L shaped black or white 24volt relay, generally rated at 10 amps. The replacement board or relay will be rated at least 24V/ 15 amps or more. If you can isolate your motor and test it separtely with a power cord or meter , the realy/board will be the only control componnet left.
If you have a small tipped soldering IRON, not a gun, you can generally find a replacement relay to rebuild the board for about $6 at an electronics parts store. Otherwise you will need to replace the control board itself, anywhere form $45 to $70 plus service call if you have a tech come out to the house, and the tech will just unscrew , detach wires and replace the board, no repair , approx 15 minutes work. This will likely cost over $100.
Please post back with your results

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that. I think this happened once before and maybe they...


The hose has fuseable link inside, generally a 3-7 amp. It is at the wall end underneath the hose cuff. Easy to replace as it crimps in line. If you have a meter you can also test the detachable hose to wall cord for continuity, then check the hose to handle as well.
You can also detach the hose to wall cord from the hose, and plug your power head directly into that cord,, then into the wall thereby eliminating the hose itself.
Hayden makes a serviceable hose. If damaged or the fuse blown it can be serviced by a good tech. If the fuse is blown you need to clean and inspect the power head as this may be the cause

Cleaning filter on the Dyson Slim


You don't have to clean the HEPA filter (underneath the canister in that clear part) - if you break that clear part you will cause damage to the machine and it won't **** anymore as the air will escape. There is no need to remove it or replace it, it is a lifetime filter. You only have to clean the blue filter that is inside the top of the canister/dirt bin.
