Remove the thread, the needle and the bobbin case. Run it full speed for 1 full minute. Replace needle, thread and bobbin case and try again.

One place it says if your vacuum has a thermal overload reset see owners manual if vacuum will not start. It also says make sure hose is not plugged and filter and bag are good.

I can’t really help with the bag issue because I’ve never heard of that before. But my guess is that the bag isn’t breathing properly or is overly full. If the vacuum sounds louder it’s possibly because the fan is off balance and/or the brush could be bad. To test this turn both switches on and listen is the vacuum sounds normal then we know it’s not the bypass motor. If however you put the handle back and the vacuum is loud it’s probably the fan in the direct air motor. You can also take the brush out and do the same test to see if the loud noise is coming from the brush. If you take the brush out and run both motors and they sound fine, you know the problem is in the brush. Hopefully that helps.

I usually just break them off. The new one will literally pop on. Don't forget to take of the hubcap and put it on the new wheel.

Your 8955 could be up to 17 or 18 years old. If yours is old or has been heavily used it may have a wiring short somewhere. The screw holding the handle in to the body of the vacuum might be loose which can cause the handle to not full engage the switch. Try wiggling the handle back and forth to see if it causes the power to turn on and off. Tighten the screw holding the handle in.
If the nozzle housing is restricted from pivoting freely by wear or dirt or debris the nozzle may not go all the way down when the handle is reclined back into the vacuuming position. Inspect the pivot area closely.

When writing emails, I often ended it with "thank you in advance". Even more, I used to have it in my signature for a certain time (mea culpa).
However, recently I've been told that it is not appropriate or even rude.
I checked on the Web and found some links (1), (2) that confirm this point.
There's also a discussion at ELU on this matter.
Instead of "thank you in advance", they usually suggest something like "I appreciate any help that you can provide" or "I will be grateful if you can..."
OTOH, in my native language there are two distinct types of appreciation: appreciation "after" is merely like English "thank you", but appreciation "before" can be translated something like "let the divine providence be with you" or "...give you power (to do what I'm asking)", or, simply speaking (not very accurate, though), "bless you (to do what I'm asking)".
I'm trying to combine both things, i.e. avoid using "thank you in advance" and preserve the meaning of above. Is it possible?

  1. "Thank you ... "
  2. "Thank you for any help you can offer ... "
  3. "Gratefully, [your name] ... "
  4. "Thanks for considering this ... "
  5. "In any case, thanks for your help ... "
  6. "Many thanks ... "
  7. "Let me know if this isn't feasible by [date], and I'll see what I can do ... "
  8. "I hope this is possible ... "
  9. "Really appreciate your time here ... "
  10. "In the meantime, thanks for your time ... "
  11. "Thank you for doing X ... "
  12. "Looking forward to [discussing the results, talking about what you find, learning more about X] ... "
  13. "I'd be grateful if you could finish X by [date] ... "
  14. "You're the best ... "
  15. "Thanks again ... "
  16. "Thank you for your understanding ... "
  17. "I appreciate your extra time here ... "
  18. "I know your time is valuable and I appreciate your attention ... "
  19. "Let me know if I can help ... "

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Whether you're writing to a colleague or direct report, use these "thanks in advance" alternatives to thank them for their consideration.
1. "Thank you ... " For a simple, gracious close that won't offend anyone, sign off with "Thank you."
2. "Thank you for any help you can offer ... " Show appreciation for your recipient's time and energy with this ending. It translates to "Even if you can't help, I appreciate your effort."
3. "Gratefully, [your name] ... " Use this alternative when your ask is slightly out-of-the-ordinary: You're giving the person less time than ideal, increasing the scope of your original request, or pulling them into a project they're not a part of.
4. "Thanks for considering this ... " With this sign-off, you say, "Hey, it means something you're even thinking of doing this." Revealing a little humility can help you win the other person to your cause.
5. "In any case, thanks for your help ... " After you've made your request, end with this tactful line. You're essentially telling the other person, "Whether you agree or not, I value your consideration."
6. "Many thanks ... " This variation on the classic "thank you" is a bit more formal, making it feel more authentic.
Below is a sample email using one of these alternatives. It clearly states the request, and thanks the recipient for their consideration.
Hi Tim,
We're holding a holiday fundraiser for the children's hospital on December 5th. Our team will be managing the bake sale and I still need volunteers to cover a few more shifts at the bake sale table.
If you're available on December 5th from 5:30 PM to 600 PM or 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM, your help would be much appreciated. I've attached the sign-up form below where you can pick your shift.
Thank you for any help you can offer.
-- Peter

Thank you in advance for your help.

These "thank you in advance" alternatives can be used when you're requesting help or previously requested assistance from the recipient.
7. "Let me know if this isn't feasible by [date], and I'll see what I can do ... " I'd recommend saving this sign-off for a direct report. It's clear your recipient can't really say no to whatever you've asked -- at most, you'll let them negotiate the deadline. And you're suggesting even that option isn't ideal.
Why is this better than "Thanks in advance"? Because it's straightforward and direct, while "thanks in advance" feels inauthentic and/or passive-aggressive.
8. "I hope this is possible ... " #8 is an alternative to #7, but for someone who's your peer or superior. It's softer and leaves more room for pushback.
9. "Really appreciate your time here ... " Are you telling, not asking? When the other person doesn't have a choice in the matter, you want to avoid closes that make them sound like they can opt out. This close is a polite but firm way to say "You have to do this" that won't annoy them.
10. "In the meantime, thanks for your time ... " Let your recipient know you recognize their attention.
11. "Thank you for doing X ... " Explicitly acknowledge the help they're providing, whether that's "thanks for meeting with me," "thanks for reviewing this proposal," "thanks for introducing me to so-and-so," or "thanks for answering these questions."
12. "Looking forward to [discussing the results, talking about what you find, learning more about X] ... " When you're asking someone to do some work on your behalf, this close comes in handy. You're showing your interest in the project -- validating that it's worth their effort.
13. "I'd be grateful if you could finish X by [date] ... " Tactfully give the person a timeline with this sign-off.
14. "You're the best ... " When you're emailing a close colleague who's doing you a favor, use this heartfelt closing line. (Just make sure you save it for special occasions, or you'll seem fake.)
15. "Thanks again ... " Did you already thank your recipient once? No harm in reiterating the sentiment.
16. "Thank you for your understanding ... " Sometimes, it's necessary to appeal to your recipient's compassionate side. Maybe you're asking for something you know they're not thrilled about -- or giving them the heads up you can't follow through on their request.
They'll have a harder time denying you after you've expressly said thanks for their patience.
17. "I appreciate your extra time here ... " Don't we all just want to be appreciated? Sometimes, all it takes to move someone to action is to let them know you notice them and their efforts and to thank them for spending their time on you.
18. "I know your time is valuable and I appreciate your attention ... " Again, letting your prospect know you realize they're carving out time especially for you is always appreciated. They don't have to help you out, and it's a good idea to recognize that.
19. "Let me know if I can help ... " Is there something you could do to make this ask easier for your prospect? Try to take these actions proactively, and always let them know you're happy to step in and shoulder some of the work.
Here's an example email using a "thanks in advance" alternative.

Turn wheel until needle rises as far as it will go, Lubricate that bar inside that goes up and down above the bracket or housing that holds it, Also take note if there is a lower bracket that also needs to be oiled. Make sure you got the bushing around the turning shaft nearest the handwheel, and make sure there is not a thread wrapped around the shaft nearest the handwheel. (Behind the handwheel,)

Start by checking the suction opening by the brushroll. Then remove the screws and take the nozzle cover off. Remove the cover to be able to inspect the impeller for clogs or debris. Pull the motor if necessary to gain access to the lower end of the suction tube/handle.
