Vacuums - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Amy, not sure from your description whether the outer part is what came off or the smaller, inner part came off. If it is the outer part, all you need to do is squeeze the two prongs of the inner part of the bag holder together and slip the two pegs into the holes on the outer part of the holder. If the inner part came off then you have to spread it, so that it will go over the opening on the handle, and then follow the directions I gave to install the outer part. Hope this helps.

The sewage suction truck is a tanker adapted to emptying cesspits and the like for people who aren't connected to mains drainage.

The pump doesn't actually move the sewage - the pump creates a partial vacuum in the tanker so when the main valve is opened atmospheric pressure being greater then blows the sewage into the tanker.

A tanker of similar design is used as a gully emptier - typically roadside drains that after a dry summer become blocked with dirt, leaves and litter so a flood is likely when the rain starts. The cast iron grid is removed and a close fitting suction pipe is dropped into the drain, the pump is started and shortly after the main valve is opened and the drain is clear.
This type of special tanker usually carries a tank of water so cleared drains can be hosed to provide a clean and tidy appearance for the taxpayer.

They are unglamorous vehicles and not nice to be closely involved with but they provide an essential contribution to a hygienic world.
The workers of the sewage tanker are at some risk of infection and generally have a priority pass to medical aid should they need it.

You better use liquid soup with some vinegar, or something similar but never use bleach cause i used it for my last water tank and the result was a disaster. The plastic got greyed and shrinked. This happens more quickly with warm acidic water. The people that have success with plastic tanks seem to always have hard alkaline water but with hot water or bleach this leaching will damaged easily, i had to buy a new one I searched online and i had to ship a budget one with good quality from Brazil from an advanced company for plastic industries ( ). I received it after 2 days.

The replacement module could be defective but also control circuitry could be at fault.

Maybe not the same issue, but my roller brush would only work intermittently. I had to take apart the main housing and clean the two contacts (female side) that connect to the lower brush assembly. Now it works like new.

Traditionally Electrolux motors are reliable and long lasting but these days who knows who makes what.
What happens with sickening regularity is the cleaner loses suction and the filters are removed to provide a boost and then the bag bursts and the muck and dust goes through the motor - seriously bad news for an Electrolux.

When a vacuum stops, about 7 times out of 10 the power cord has developed an internal break, 2 times out of 10 the switch has failed and 1 time out of 10 something else has failed, such as the thermal breaker or fuse or maybe the motor, even then it might be repairable - after extended service the brushes wear out for instance.

I suggest you first discover what is wrong...

My kenmore progressive vacuum had the same problem. The electrical terminal at the bottom of the wand was corroded. I used a flat head screw driver to scrape the female portion of the connector as best as I could. I then took off the plastic cover on the vacuum head that had the male portion of the connection. I used sand paper to clean the two connection prongs. I also spread them apart slightly for better connection (more interference) when the connection is made. I reassembled, and our vacuum is working fine now. I hope that helps.

Maybe you shouldn't have moved your girlfriend up to North Dakota with you. I'm sure that it is her fault that your water is leaking in your RV.

I only ever owned one Lindhaus upright vacuum and it was many years ago so I don't know how to advise you how to fix the height adjustment - perhaps there is a maintenance guy somewhere close by.

The tv adverts showing an upright cleaner gliding over a carpet without apparent effort just doesn't happen if the cleaner is working right. What the adverts are presenting is a carpet sweeper but what you buy is a vacuum cleaner and sweeper.

When it is working right an upright cleaner actually pulls the carpet clear of the floor by a small amount and seals it against the mouth of the brush housing so air is pulled through the fabric of the carpet as the brush agitates the pile. This makes cleaning more efficient but it takes much more effort to push than the adverts suggest.
