Question about Vacuums

2 Answers

My Anemometer has stopped working, vane swivels with the wind & cups spin freely but don't register on the clock. Spindle bearing seems to be worn. Can I get a complete new module? I have renewed the batteries but still don't work. Also, the oputside temperature has never worked properly, shows anything from 8-15* when actually freezing. Otherwise, all working OK. C. Ellis.

    Hi Tony.
    Thanks for your comment. This is only a "household" weather station with all the usual bits & pieces, just for interest sake. The anemometer packed up, so I took it down , opened it & found the vane shaft wobbly.It must have affected the board inside as the wind speed no longer shows. All i want to know is, can I get a replacement module? Can get no sense out of this lot I'm dealing with. Have contacted the firm but, that seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Wish I'd never seen the damn thing.
    Regards
    Cyril

    I have e/mailed them but, it seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Maybe with them it's, out of sight, out of mind. They haven't had the decency or good manners to reply. Definitely wont have one of their machines again. Suggestions where I can get a good reliable one??

Hello,
I am a trained storm spotter as well as a storm chaser. So I use Anemometers all the time during the warmer weather when severe storms occur. You may not need a new module but rather a calibration of your system. Something like this would do you http://www.tsi.com/en-1033/products/3734/thermal_anemometry_system/3752/automatic_velocity_calibrator_with_pressure_transducer.aspx However if you don't want to go through all of that then many Anemometers have a model that can be replaced. If the bearings are worn you will not get proper wind readings either. Depending on the the overall condition of your current Anemometer you may want to weight your options, pros and cons of repair vrs a new Anemometer.
Regards, Tony

    Hello,



    I have not been able to find a new module for your anemometer. I saw most of the one's listed for £150.00 and higher. I was able to locate an entire new unit on e-bay for you for quite a bit cheaper - £74.99 http://cgi.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dllViewI... In my opinion if you were to find a module to replace the old one with it would not be much cheaper than this. So I might just snag an entirely new fully functioning unit at that price.



    Regards,

    Tony

    The page for that company is here: http://www.lexibook.com/
    They have support and parts available for it.

  • Brad Brown Apr 10, 2011

    You are saying that the electronics in the remote unit are bad do to wobble on the shaft? I would get a new unit. I have several weather stations and most of them don't replace parts. some of it is proprietary, they might allow you to send it in for service.

Brush spins once then stops.


I don't know this machine but I'd check the bearings on the ends of the brush to see if they are spinning freely. If it has a drive belt try changing it, if it is an impeller drive check the vanes for damage.

By the way this machine I believe has a 5 year warrenty,

The belt on my bissell powerforce compact keeps falling off the spindle. So its not moving the brush it stays on for a minute then falls off.


Either your belt has stretched beyond its specs or you have larger problems. Are you talking about a new belt? If not, try a new belt. If so, check to make sure the beater bar will spin freely without a belt attached. If it spins without a belt attached, make sure the bearing blocks at both ends are in good shape.

How do I take the agitator end caps off?


Alliemay657:

It sometimes takes a 2 grunt pull to remove the end caps and bearings from the agitator (called the beater bar). I have had to use a flat blade screwdriver to CAREFULLY pry the end caps and bearings from a beater bar. Be careful not to stab your hand with the screwdriver (It HURTS!!!) Once you get the end caps and bearings off, clean the hair and carpet fibers from the ends of the beater bar and bearings and end caps. If the bearings don't turn easily, dribble some rubbing alcohol on them (I use a spray bottle filled with alcohol) and spin them until they spin freely. Dry the bearings until there is no alcohol in them. Put a drop or two of light machine oil in each bearing (3 in 1 oil will do), and spin the bearings to distribute the oil and ensure they spin freely. Now would be a good time to check the vacuum head and hose for clogs. Push the bearings and end caps back on the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar (with a new belt). Reinstall the foot plate, and your machine should run like new

Spinscrub loud brushes don't spin


Most models have a screen under the machine or behind one of the clear covers on the front. If the screen is clogged it will restrict the airflow.
Make sure the brushes will spin freely by hand.

Z61 brush won`t rotate belt ok


Hartlepoolke:

Unplug the vacuum, turn it upside down and remove the floor plate so you can access the beater bar. Remove the belt from the motor shaft and remove the beater bar and belt from the machine. At each end of the beater bar there will be a small circular bearing. Carefully remove the bearings from the ends of the beater bar, and remove the collection of hair, carpet fibers and any other junk wrapped around the bearing mount studs. Grab an old pan... (something to wash the bearings in) and an old toothbrush. Scrub the bearings with the toothbrush dipped in rubbing alcohol, and attempt to spin the bearings by hand as you clean them. When the bearings will spin freely, dry them out, and put a drop of oil (preferably 3-in-1 or light machine oil in the bearing. Don't soak the bearing in oil, that will just attract more junk to jam the bearing. Wipe the bearings off and rotate them to ensure that they aren't ratcheting or siezing up. Check the belt to ensure that the motor spindle has not damaged the inside surface of the belt... If it has, a new belt may be in order. Reassemble the vacuum and you problem should be solved.

How can I tell if I need to replace the beater bar? I replaced the belt but now it seems too tight and the bar doesn't want to spin.


The belt is supposed to be tight, but the beater bar bearings are probably full of string, hair, and thread. Remove the bar, remove, clean, and oil the bearings (3-1 or similar). Leave the belt off for a moment, and install just the bar. Spin it with your fingers--it should revolve freely--if not, redo the clean/lube process again making sure to clean the inside of the bearings with a Q-tip swab. Once the bar spins freely, remove it to slide on the belt and reinstall. Hope this helps!

My machine ran over some string,made a funny noise and emitted some smoke,the hand suction pipe at the rear works perfectly, the motor runs fine,but the front of the vacuum will not work.thankyou very...


the string bound up the beater bar (brush), keeps the belt stationary, and the motor spindle is just rubbing against the belt and melting it. remove the belt guard, remove the brush, and the belt. clean off the brush bearings (at the ends of the brush) of the string and make sure the ends spin freely from the brush. replace the belt with a new one, and put it all back together.

Placing belt back on vacuum it keeps braking
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Dirt Devil M087700SV Bagless Upright Vacuum. From what I can see you may have 2 problems. #1. It may be that your brushroll is not spinning freely and could be bound up with thread, dust and dirt on the bearing ends, or #2. The motor pulley is not spinning freely – you should take the motor pulley and try to spin it and if it spins freely then it must be the brushroll, either cleanout or replace the bearings or buy a new brushroll and start over. 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.

Brushes won't spin on hoover steam vac ls


I have the SteamVac Dual and there's a screen on the underside of the unit. It's beneath the brushes and it's red. You have to pull and wiggle it to get it out. With the machine unplugged, lay the unit with the handle on the floor. In the owner's manual ( http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F7222900.pdf ) this is shown on page 10 figure 3-2. Clean that screen.
If they still won't spin, then take the brushes out. Again, with the unit on the floor, you simply grab the unit firmly and pull towards you. It's much easier to remove than the screen. I took the brush unit outside and blasted it with the house. You'll have to pull out whatever fur balls are clogging it but eventually you'll see that the brushes spin freely with the water squirting on them. Plug the brush unit back in and - in my case - they started spinning.
