The Healthy Home vacuum has 6 t20 screws on the bottom plate, careful though as two of them are set fairly deep near the wheels and will require at least a 4 inch long t20 to reach the screws.

Where is the belt in my Miele upright


You will need a Torx wrench (a special star-shaped wrench that is similar to an Allen wrench), to pull off the bottom plate. Once you do, the belt is easy to get to. Torx wrenches are a little uncommon, but they are normally sold in numbered sets, so either take the vacuum with you to the hardware store, or get a good idea of the size by looking at the screw head.

I have a Singer 478 sewing machine and need to replace the top gear on the verticle shaft. Is there a repair manual for doing this. There was not category expert on this so please direct to the correct...


This is an easy fix. a lot disassembly required, you will need to gain access through the belt side to the singer cover plate,four clips hold it on from the back side. Once that is off, two screw hold small access plate which is under the letters Sin, remove plate, rotate shaft to access screw through opening which holds Vertical Top Shaft Gear, Singer # 155819 in place. Remove bottom cover, locate belt pulleys (2), remove cam tensioner, with a hex wrench remove pulleys, this makes it easier to remove lower belt. with a long thin, blade screwdriver, loosen screw on gear (through small access cover), slide shaft downward Rand R gear, reverse process, done. Be sure you document removal, take pictures, mark references with marking pen.This makes reassembly easy. I just replaced mine, I am handy but not an expert, hope this helps you...

Insinkerator hums but does not gring. What to do? Tim


Hey Tim. I can help you look into the obvious and perhaps most inexpensive problems to fix.
At the bottom of the ISE there is a hex type hole in the center of the bottom plate. This is for an allen wrench of the appropriate size, a wrench usually comes with the units when they are new. UNPLUG the unit under the sink and insert the allen wrench into the hole. You can now use the allen wrench to manually turn the cutting blades inside the ISE. You may find something wedged in the blades that needs to be removed, family silverware, dog collars, etc. As long as the unit is unplugged you can reach inside and clear any debris. You will also find a small button on the bottom of the ISE. This is a circuit breaker and does trip from time to time. You just need to push it in to reset it. But since your unit is humming, I doubt the breaker is tripped. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.

How to fix a garbage disposal


Depends on what is wrong with it. Two basic problems that can exist - Circuit breaker can be tripped Blades can be caught up.
Unplug unit and re-set breaker on bottom of unit. Get an appropriate size allen wrench and insert into bottom of unit and manually turn chopper blades. Remove allen wrench, plug in and start unit up.

Hoover empower lost suction


The first thing you need to do is remove the debris bin in the front. Turn on the vacuum and feel if there is any suction at the bottom of that compartment. If not then your problem is not a simple blockage and you can stop reading this right now, if you do feel good suction, you're in luck.

The problem is almost assuredly a blockage of some sort. The Hoover Empower's greatest feature is its simplicity of design which is basically a 12 amp motor creating a powerful suction over a very short path as vacuum cleaners go.

While you still have the debris container out of the machine, disconnect the accessory hose from its mount on the right (or "passenger") side of the machine and blow through it. You should plainly feel your own breath coming out of the rectangular slot in the area behind where the debris container mounts.

If you don't feel it, or if it is not strong, well there's your problem. You will need a Torx driver set to remove the 13 screws that hold the back of the vacuum cleaner on and the accessories hose in. Unless you are a total tool geek, you probably won't have anything like this around but you can pick up a set of Torx head screw drivers at any decent hardware store. The look like an Allen wrench set but the ends are different. Look at the screw heads and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Once you remove the screws, the rest of the job is a piece of cake. Brush out or wipe down the air channel and clear the accessory hose, put the rascal back together and buy yourself something nice with the 70 or 80 dollars you would have been charged to do the same work by someone else.

Hi.

Depending on wether your machine has A clutch fitted will decide how easy this job will be.

The non clutched model is very simple turn the 3 plastic screws on sole plate to unlock position lift plate off remove belt from motor shaft & lift out brush roller.
Replace belt & roller fit sole plate & its done.

The clutched version will require the removing of the sole pate,
Then remove brush roller. & brush roller housing.
Then remove clutch cover,
Replace both belts & reassemble.

Its A lot to explain in great detail so try this site if your struggling.

Electrolux Renaissance Hose Replacement


Notice how the hose has a groove just around the outer edge of the gray plastic near the white plastic insert. The hose is held into the handle buy two "tongues" inserted into this groove. One of these tongues is on the end of the top plastic piece of the handle. The second is on the piece of plastic that is slid into the little hole at the base of the handle and it is visible in the picture.

To remove the first, you'll have to remove the two screws in the top of the handle that hold the top plastic piece. This can be a challenge unless you have the right tool. It's essentially a hex-star allen wrench tool that is required, I'm guessing about 1/16 inch. I had one in my tool box that fit. Remove the screws and pop the top plate off. This frees the first tongue from the groove. Now, just get a screw driver (or use your finger) to press the plastic piece inserted in the hole at the bottom of the handle. Press from the "t" side and this should slide right out. Now your hose will slide right out of the handle and you can replace the old with new. Re-insert the small plastic insert, and refasten the top plastic piece of the handle and you're good to go.
