Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a Sunbeam DripFree iron, model 4243, L series. I recently turned it on to the 'linen' setting and mistakenly left it on and walked away from it. During my absense it utilized it's automatic shutoff feature and turned itself off. Now I can't seem to get it to heat up again even if I unplug and plug it in again. Does is have some sort of reset capability? When I Plug it in the red 'on' light is activiated but no heat is emitted from the iron.

It sounds like the themostat inside the unit is broken. The only solution to fix the unit is to send it to the manufacturer for repair.
I'm unsure of the cost for the repair but it might be cheaper if the unit is older to throw it away and buy a new steamer.

Hi. If you have a double or queen size blanket, switch the controls from one side to the other. If the fault follows the control, then the control is faulty. If the fault stays on the same side of the bed, then the blanket may be faulty. Most recent Sunbeam models have 3 years warranty. Once you've checked the controls, if it's under warranty call Sunbeam Customer Service on 1800025059 option 1 to report a warranty issue.

Otherwise: if the control is at fault, a new BL0750 has a recommended retail of $75.20. Get in contact with your local Sunbeam Service Centre via http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Support/Repairers.aspx
but if all else fails email me as I'm happy to help!

Make sure that the Iron is unplugged from the Mains socket. From a Paint shop / Hardware shop.get some Turpentine. Wet a soft cotton cloth with Turpentine and gently wipe the iron surface in a circular pattern. You might have to wet the cloth a few times and the color will come off.
After the color comes off wipe the teflon area with a liquid dish washer solution to remove all traces of turpentine.Wipe clean several times and then heat up the iron to full temperature( Max: temp ) and iron an old cotton cloth to remove the traces of soap and turpentine ( and also the smell ).

Often if the plug or cord is a problem, it can be seen. Look carefully at the plug, are the prongs straight? Is the cord damaged where it enters the plug? Is the cord damaged where it enters the vacuum? If the plug was rotated, it is possible that the wires inside the cord may have frayed insulation and are making contact with each other.
If it is the plug or the plug end of the cord, you can get a new plug at Home Depot and replace your old one.
Also, if you have a switched outlet or switched multi outlet extension, you can shut the power to the outlets off, plug in the vacuum and turn on the switch so you are not near the plug when you plug it in to test it.

How do I take apart my Sunbeam clothes iron?


There's almost always a screw in the back (heel) of the iron, just behind where the cord enters. It might be a Torx or clutch head vs, straight or Phillips.

How do i clean my iron so brown dirt won't come out of it when i iron


Hi,


Brown water and white scale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...

If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...

For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,

and then use the bottled water instead...

How to clean sunbeam ultra 60 platinum iron. Can't find instruction booklet!!!!!


Do you mean the Sunbeam Ultura 60 Platinum iron? Wipe the exterior of the iron with a damp soft cloth and then dry the iron. To clean the steam valve, turn the Steam/Dry dial to Clean so that the tip pops up. Gently scrub the tip of the valve with a steel wool pad moistened with warm water. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Replace the valve and turn clockwise to lock into place (reset the dial to Dry when storing the iron). Clean the steam holes of any build up, use a cotton wool tip moistened with methylated spirits. The teflon plate should be cleaned with the damp soft cloth, just like the rest of the exterior of the iron. If you have ironed a polyester that melted onto the iron, then iron a damp cotton cloth when the iron is hot.

The manual for several Ultura irons, including the 60, is available here: http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Browse/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=1485 . The link for the manual is in the center of the page above the Image Gallery.

I hope this helps.

My Sunbeam Pro Stream II Teflon shot and spray iron consistently spits water as I try to iron. I don't overfill it and the temperature and steam dials are set correctly. help!


How old is the steam iron?
And what type of water have you been using in it during its life?

The reason I ask, is that my Wife's was doing this, and we have fairly 'hard' water,
and she was using water directly from the tap.
After a year or so of this 'hard' water, calcium and minerals build up in the heating chamber in the iron-- Also passageways get clogged, and instead of smooth flowing steam, you get build-up of pressure, and then sputtering and spurting take place, as the clogged passageways try to pass the steam to where it needs to be.

1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft bushing

Generic problem for all Vacuums
1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft...
Posted by mower man on Jun 08, 2008
I have a late 50's series Sunbeam twin-blade electric lawn mower that I use regularly. The shaft bushing(s) on the left blade has worn out, and there's too much play for me to run it w/o ruining the machine.
It appears that the belt-run cog inside the housing is the part that is supposed to come off of the shaft to get to the bushings, but instead of a cotter pin or other fastener holding the cog in place, it looks like a rolled metal pin that may have been pressed in place.
How do I replace the shaft bushings so I can keep using this great vintage appliance!? I found a website that supplies parts for this model year, but no schematics or user manuals. Thanks!


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. This website is for vacuums and you would need to contact a local lawn mower shop in the yellow pages, they are amazing about the way they can fix old lawnmowers.

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.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
