Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have designed a machine for cleaning and harvesting using a centrifugal fan. The flexible hose is 203mm Diameter and 5 metres long. How can I calculate the vacuum pressure this machine creates at the end of the hose? I would like to use this information in the advertising and to compare with other similar machines. Thank you Alan Churchill [email protected]

    The information provided does not seem to relate to my machine/problem.My indusrial vacuum machine has a 203mm diam inlet hose with a 13Hp motor driving a centrifugal fan. If I put the hose into a source of water with a dye in it, turn the motor on and see how far the water is sucked up the hose will I be able to calculate the Hg? there are some photos on my website at www.blackskinkvacs.com.au it may give you an idea of the machines involved.
    Thanks

I have a Bissell deep clean essential complete model #8852 or 14055C the hose won't suck

First remove the hose and place your hand instead of the hose then start tha machine. If your hand is suck by the machine only your hose is the problem. Clean your hose by filling it with water and see what will come out at the other end of the hose. If water and some dirt comes out, wait until pure water only comes out. If water and debris not coming out of the hose, use a flexible wire or rod to push the debris blocking the hose.

I need a Simpson EZI SET dishwasher inlet hose. I have been sent one but it is too short

take the hose along to a hose making shop ( any hydraulic hose manufacturer) and have a hose made to your length
or get your old hose , cut off the ends and use the fittings in a quality hose from your hardware shop
use hose clamps to fix the hoses back on the ends

Take hose off to clean

Pull out handle as usual.
Release hose from wand and handle by pressing the pair of release clips on the handle just above where the hose enters. I have to press these clips quite hard and pull quite a bit to get the hose to come free. All the above is as you would normally use the hose.
Lay hose down to rear of machine. Just between the bottom of the hose and the machine body is a small plastic tab: pull this a little away from the machine body.
Slide bottom end of hose upwards and out of the machine.

The hose can be dismantled from the plastic fittings at each end but has not been designed for the user to do so: the hose and fittings are bought as an assembly (not expensive at about GBP15).

Only suction from hose

What again for the third time? Already answered this but if it helps:

If you have taken the bottom end of the machine apart, you might not have reassembled it correctly so that the path to the floor (base) plate is obstructed when the vacuum cleaner body is laid back, otherwise:

You have either a blockage in the section of the cleaner in the vicinity of the short flexible hose and the floor (base) plate or the the short flexible hose has become detached at one or both ends.

1. Stand the machine upright with the beater bar in the "off " position. Machine switched off but plugged into the mains outlet.
2. Lay machine on its left hand side. You will see the short flexible hose uppermost. Check that it is attached at both tends and has not split or cracked. Check for obvious visible obstruction inside.
3. Remove the floor (base) plate by releasing the three plastic clips with a quarter turn anti-clockwise. Lift floor plate forwards and check no obstruction. Replace floor plate. Stand machine upright on floor.
4. Press two plastic clips to release the inspection cover, on bottom right hand side of machine (when standing behind it). Look into the hole: you will now be looking down into the U-bend that leads to the hose. Switch on the machine: full suction should be at the hole on the side of the machine (otherwise the hose would not have worked). Switch off.
5. Lean the handle and machine body backwards, as though you were going to use the machine on the floor. The hole to the hose now becomes covered and you will be able to see into the short flexible hose that leads to the floor plate. Check for obstruction. Replace inspection cover.

If there's no obstruction and the flexible hose is sound and attached securely then the machine will work - there's nothing else to check.

No suction for the hand tools

If your suction is ok for normal cleaning and bad for just the hand tools then you have a blockage in the flexible hose or the "u pipe" at the bottom of the flexible hose. Un-clip the u pipe and check it for blockage. Un-clip the hose from the vacuum and you should be able to look through it when letting it hang straight down.

With a new bag -after turning vacuum on, it shuts down

This vac is prone to a control valve failure with the exact symptoms you describe. There is a dial valve on top of the machine designed to regulate how full the bag will get. The valve which sits underneath the dial on the vac likely has a broken plunger and will need to be replaced. Take it to an AERUS Electrolux dealer / shop for an experienced tech to work on.

Hiyah i need to know how to get the pipe out so i can clean the stairs

Hi there smartalec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Basically there is a colour coded (yellow if your vacuum is the one pictured) big button on the front of the machine where the pole joins the rest of the body just above the yellow part that is on top of the clear bin. Push this in and lift the handle up. Keep sliding the handle up until it make a click sound then press the little button at the end of the flexible hose which will now be at the bottom of the rod. The rod will now come completely off. You can put the cleaning tools in the end of the flexible hose and be cleaning in no time.
Happy vacuuming! :)

I can't figure out how to hook up hose attachment to dyson 07

You have a reversible wand on the DC07. You have to separate the wand from the hose first, then turn it around and reconnect it. Once that is done you will be able to use the attachments on the end of the wand. You can also connect your attachments to the hose.
To separate the wand:
1) Take the wand off the back of the machine
2) Place one hand on the Handle and one hand on the gray flexible hose.
3) Push the flexible hose down. You will see a long metal rod appearing. Push until the hose clicks into place at the bottom of the metal rod.
4) You'll see a half-moon shape button with a picture of a lock on the solid gray plastic part at the top of the hose - push it, this will separate the wand from the hose.
5) Turn the wand around
6) Push the purple wand cap with the holes in it back, it exposes a short dark gray pipe, about an inch in length
7) Connect the hose to the short pipe
8) Attach your tools to the top of the metal rod and have fun
