The bag should not move at all, if it rotating there is a problem with the shroud allowing that movement.

Swivel wheels won't stay straight and the vac just skids.


Do you find that the wheels are jammed and won't rotate, thus causing the vac to go to theleft or right or just have to be dragged along forward?Try wd40 to see if it will allow the wheels to rotate freely.

One blade seems to jam even after i free it up


Put a wood broomstick down in the opening, or use allen wrench on bottom of motor, and see if you can free up the cutter disk.
You want the disk to rotate freely.
Then use vacuum cleaner hose to make sure all the small stuff is removed.
If the disk rotates freely, but continues to jam, then you probably need to replace disposal.
I wrote ez disposal replacement steps from when I worked apartment maintenance.

I have an Oreck XL2 and the brush is not rotating.


First, check to see if the drive belt for the brush is broken. If it is you need to get it replaced. Also, remove the brush from the cleaner and clean if of all debris then check the small caps at both ends of the brush. If they do not move freely, add a little WD40 and rotate by hand until they move freely. When putting the new belt on or replace the old one, be sure it is put on properly so the brush rotates in the right direction.

Pulley on engine does not turn


inside the pulley attached to the crank shaft which turns the belts is a piece that allows the pulley to turn in reverse freely. if this breaks the pulley will not rotate. the engine will still run, but without rotating the water pump, will overheat. Change the pulley and you should solve the problem

The brushes and the belt are not rotating. The power seems fine and there is suction. I have no other history on this problem since I was given this almost new unit over Thanksgiving. Where should I be...


If you've got suction, but the brushes and belt are not rotating, then either the belt has come off the motor shaft, or the belt is broken and just looks OK.

Remove the bottom cover off the floor head and check that the brush roller turns freely. If it does, then check the belt.

Let me know if you need additional repair information.

Sweeper smells stinks whole house up when running


Several questions:
What does the smell seem to be? If rubber, check the belt and brushroll for free rotation. If a musty smell, check the bag, it may need replaced with a new paper bag. If it has an electrical smell, like hot insulation, then the motor needs checked.

Our whirpool dishwasher seems to be cleaning the dishes here and there, missing some. The top shelf of the dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning at all. Also the soap dispenser does not seem to be quite...


This sounds more like the sprayer arm isn't rotating freely.
Open the dishwasher and pull the bottom tray forward (remove it if you like)

Reach in and try to rotate the sprayer arm. It should move freely. If you give it a quick flick, it should spin around at least one full revolution before coming to a stop.

Sometimes these become blocked by dishes or plastic bags in the bottom of the dishwasher, other times they simply wear out and you'll need to replace the arm assembly. When I replaced this for our GE dishwasher this spring, the total cost was around $38 for the parts. The replacement took less than 5 minutes, with no tools.

If you want help tracking down replacement part numbers or a source to buy them, comment back here and I'll google them up for you.

Why does the belt keep breaking on my kirby


Odds are that the problem is not with the belt or the pulley, but with an agitator (rotating brush) that isn't turning freely. Remove the rotating brush and check to see that it spins freely. If not, you would either need to disassemble it (removing the end caps) to see if removing whatever hair / diebris is stuck between the end caps and the body of the agitator, and if that doesn't cause free rotation, then it means your agitator bearings are likely bad which means you will need to replace the agitator assembly.

Key stuck in ignition of 1976 chevy corvette stingray 350 auto


If I understand, the key will not rotate to all of the normal positions? If this is true, then I would guess that the trani didn't fully return to the park position please verify, You can check the ignition switch(the one that is half way down the steering column) for defects. Is there any binding, does the rotate freely? Thank you; good luck.
