Hi,

According to you you want to clear the blockage of your floor tool.

But you don't have say your vacuum cleaner model.

I suggest be careful while you do this and also careful about small parts of the cleaner. First Turn the vacuum cleaner off and unplug from the electrical socket. Remove accessory from the hose/handle tube. Carefully remove the blockage and return to the cleaner. You can use a pair of scissors to cut through any threads or hairs caught around the Tool brush bar..

My Dyson upright is approximately four-five years old. It is series number 488-US -D 82082. The individual tube connected to the handle sucks up, but the base vacuum will not suck up anything.


If the tubes work, but the floor cleaner part does not suck, then the channel leading to the compressor is blocked. There is quite a narrow channel leading away from the floor brushes that is prone to blocking. Try unscrewing the base to allow you to see up this channel, and scoop out any material that is jammed there- a piece of bent wire clothes hanger is good for this. Form a small hook on the end and probe away.

Dirt devil turbo clean sd40060 Cyclonic vacuum. Was given it as a present. Floor tool won't spin. Checked everything! Belt, for hair through out. All ok. Why isn't it working?


You should find a large button or flap on the floor tool. This is usually spring loaded and needs to be OUT. This should then let air in to drive the turbine which drives the spinner.

How do i install a replacement spring in a tool catch


it isn't obvious from the pics but if I had to guess u need to get both the catch and the spring (if u lost it) b/c the reason the spring came out is that the catch is already broken.
Once u get it, it simply pops into place.
look at this page - may help

Cant take wand of hose on dyson 24


Hi Pat, it's Jack at Dyson.

This sounds very unusual as the wand should release easily from the hose cuff - just press the red catch on the hose cuff to disengage it: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc24/dc24-multi-floor/maintaining-your-dyson-machine/how-to-use-accessories/the-combination-tool/how-to-use-the-combination-tool-step-2

If you're unable to remove the wand at all, please give the Dyson customer Helpline a call so our experts can provide further assistance. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Hi This SBD 285-3 floorhead is for a miele s8310


Hi There,
I have to say i do warranty repairs for Miele and own VacuumSpot.com.au and I have actually never heard of this before either. The miele SBD285 is basically a good quality 35mm floor tool have you tried using a different type of tool. Wessell Werk (german manufacturer) make tools for Nilfisk, Electrolux etc make a range of tools and you may find that a different one will work perfectly for you. I am not sure where you ive but highly likely your local vacuum store will sell a version like this one which is truly excellent

My henry vacuum has lost suction and there's no blockage in the pipe.


Suction cannot be lost if the motor is running normally unless the air flow has been interupted. Lift out and clean the filter so air can flow through, replace the bag, unscrew the flexi hose at his "nose", and also remove from the steel pipes. Finally drop a

Is there a switch to turn-off the tools so that


On the Hoover U6311-900 there is no switch that turns off the suction to the tool hose. That hose is attached to the head of the vacuum on the side via a spring loaded "door". Just twist the hose to remove it, the door will close and you will have full suction again.

Cannot remove attachment from proteam super quarter vac


Greetings, The ProTeam backpacks us a 1.5" hose and attachments. The way that the floor tool is removed is by unscrewing the collar of the attachment. Simply turn counter clockwise on the the part of the attachment that is secured to the wand and doesn't rotate. This should loosen the floor attachment, and you may then pull it off. The other floor attachment can be fitted, and then screwed on by rotating the opposite way, clockwise which will secure the attachment to the wand. I really hope that this information was helpful to you. If you ever need parts or supplies for your ProTeam, please be sure to check out GoVacuum dot com. If this was helpful to you, please rate the repair as helpful by clicking the 4 Thumbs up icons in the top part of the repair. Thank you very much, Chris J. GoVacuum

Fails to deliver water and shampoo when trigger depressed


hi, tip the vac on its back then look under the front where the water comes out, you will see 5 or 6 little round holes now the chances are these holes are blocked so get something long like a pin and poke these holes through you should find they are blocked with detergent that has turned to gel.
If after unblocking these holes it still dont work then you need to start thinking about following the pipe that runs to them little holes and clean these pipes out, you will find a blockage of detergent somewhere along the way.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
