Question about Vornado Circulating Fan

Vornado will not stay in fixed position

My Vornado 723 will only stay in a straight upright position. If only moved slightly it will drop to the lowest position. It's supposed to have enough resistance to allow it to stay at any point between straight up and straight down. Is there any way to adjust or tighten my fan so it will stay in any position again? Thanks

Put some rubber washers between the floor bracket and the fan housing and tighten the knobs in which position you want

How do a fix a Westinghouse fridge door that has dropped slightly

Hinge screws probably loose. Refrigerator doors have hinges screwed on the outside. The hinges allow for you to move door to be level, loosen screws, move door level and hold it there till you tighten screws. Sometimes the hinges are covered with a plastic piece that you pry gently up on to remove.

How can i get my upright kenmore vacuum cleaner to move to the vacuum position?

Don't know your brand vacuum but if I understand you correctly the solution should be pretty straight forward unless the lowering lever is broken somehow. Usually there is a foot lever on the left, or sometimes the right, toward the rear part of the base to push with your foot. Step on it while at the same time push it slightly forward first - just a quick 1" forward motion, then pull it toward you. That SHOULD disengage the handle to be able to vacuum freely.

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson in terms of not going in the upright position: This is a frequent problem that we see come in on Dysons. If this doesn't fix it, please feel free to just use the clarification request and let me know this didn't fix it.

Step 1.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.

Step 2.
  • Hold the section under the airway inspection pipe.
  • The black forward lock button must be held down simultaneously, otherwise the valve carriage will not move.
  • Pivot this section upwards until it clicks into place.
  • Release the black button once the valve pipe carriage is moved up into place.

    Step 3.

    • Tilt the machine forward.
    • The cleaner head should now slide underneath the part you have just clicked into place.
    • The machine should now stand upright.

    My Dyson DC-18 won't click and stay in the upright position. Ideas?

    Hi its Darran at Dyson.

    It is difficult to confirm what may be causing this, however its worth ensuring that when you lock the machine back up into the upright position position, that you push the handle slightly forward when you try to do this to help the pedal engage.

    If this is not working, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

    Kind regards

    X1.1 model has plenty of suction through the nozzle, but doesn't 'pull' across the floor anymore or pickup dirt when using upright

    Assuming that the automatic height adjuster is working properly, most likely your Sebo needs a new brush roll because the bristles on the old one are worn to the limit. To test the height adjuster, put the machine in the normal operating position (with the handle not upright) then switch on - the green "down" light may come on briefly (or may stay on if the brush is worn). Then, leaving the machine switched on, move the handle to the locked upright position - the green "up" light should come on, and you may be able to see the whole machine tilt backwards slightly as it lifts the brush off the floor. If that happens, the adjuster is working properly and you definitely need a new brush roll.
    I hope this helps. If you need more guidance, just post a reply here and I'll get back to you soon. Please remember to rate this answer as I do value feedback. Good luck!

    I need a new on/off switch

    I have the same problem with a VH Vornado heater
    No need to change switch.
    The switch has to sets of contacts, but uses only one. This one is burnt out

    Just reconnect the black cable (hot) to the opposite free switch connector.
    Then interchange the white (resistance) with the brown cable (ground for switch light)

    You may have to turn around the switch because the heater will turn on on the "OFF" position

    Check your cables with tester, to avoid any short circuit.

    My Hoover U8143-900 does not stay "locked" in the upright position anymore?

    Could be one of 3 things:

    When you push it into the upright position can you manually pull the footswitch up and lock it? If so, the spring isn't set right. If the footswitch isn't moving at all, the plastic may be broke (Not so good), and if it's intermitted (As in you have to wiggle/fight with it to make it lock) it may just have crud in it. Canned air and some cleaning may fix it.
