idently they found some type of extension that did not belong to it. Is there a way to take the handle apart in order to remove it? I am not able to use it with the handle and have to use the one on top of the canister, which is extremly difficult for me since I am disabled. Thank you.
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Position the wand into the end of the hose. Press the wand release button on the end of the hose and slide the wand all the way down.
Firmly push the red bin release button. The bin will slide down, cleaning the shroud as it goes and the bin base will open. The bin base won`t open if the red bin release button isn`t pushed down all the way. Press the red wand release button and pull the wand away from the bin.
Unplug the vacuum and use the Dyson Ball Animal Hose Replacement Guide to remove the vacuum`s hose and check for clogs at the base of the hose. Next, check the hose itself. Feel along-side the hose to check for a blockage. If a blockage is present, use a tool to pull out the blockage.
To put an attachment on your vacuum, press the red button near the base of the handle to release it and turn it into a handheld wand. Connect the hose to the top of the handle and slide your attachment into the opening at the other end of the wand.
Yes you do still have to hold the trigger down. I am sure this is an energy management thing to make the battery last longer by not running constantly.
Press the Lift-Away release button on the bottom of the vacuum pod underneath the accessory holder. This will unlock the handle with wand and detach the pod from the cleaner head.

I have the dyson animal. There is something stuck in the wand tube and everyting is getting caught on it. There is very little suction from the wand. How do I get the wand apart or somehow get the object stuck out of the tube? Thanks
Yes, things stuck in vacuum hoses are not always as easy to remove as one might think. Trying to push it out with something can be counter-productive, and only get the thing stuck tighter! If you have a second vacuum, you can try sucking it out the way it came in (and risk getting it stuck in the other machine. Or you can try pulling it out, using a wooden stick with a small hook screwed in the end. If you try a piece of bent wire, you must be careful not to perforate the hose. Usually just requires a bit of ingenuity.
MY VACUUM ISN’T PULLING AS STRONG AS IT USED TO SO I THINK IT NEEDS A NEW BELT. I CAN’T FIND THE MANUEL ON IT SO I NEED SOME INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CHANGE THE BELT. I DON’T WANT TO BREAK MY VAC.

Windtunnel first one used 6 times beater bar stopped working, took apart cleaned and belt was fine. this one had a reset switch for beater bar. had insurance at best buy so returned for a new one. used 2x beater bar not working and not dirty, no reset switch on this one., now back to the store for another? i don’t even want the same one. I wonder how many they are gonna give me. This seems to be a common occurance.
Sorry, you feel like that. I have rentals and 6 windtunnel’s (I prefer the bagged ones) and have never had a problem such as you have described. I think Hoover makes a great vacuum.
I need to change out the short hose on the underside of my older Dyson DC 07 Animal (Light Purple). It is the one less than a foot long on the underside which is attached on one end to the main body of the vacuum(I was able to remove this one) and the top of the upper soleplate. The latter one seems to be glued or otherwise permanently attached.Any assistance you could give me on this would be greatly appreciated….Thanks
.It’s not glued, but it can be a little difficult to remove. You need to twist and pull at the same time and it should pull off. If it’s being stubborn, squirt a little bit of WD40 / penetrating fluid where the hose meets the tube on the sole plate, leave it for a couple of minutes and try again. This will also help you to attach the new one more easily. Wipe up any excess fluid after fitting the new hose.
.There isn’t really much more I can tell you. There are numerous videos on YouTube covering Dyson maintenance. The following is actually for a clutch change but it’s one of the easiest to follow and covers removal of the short hose:
.If you fast-forward the video to 1 minute 30 seconds, you will jump straight to the part showing the removal of the hose.

I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it doesn’t seem to have any suction and there seems to be a space between the canister and the bottom of the vacumm where the canister sits. At that area, you can feel air coming out when trying to vacumm and it just doesn’t pick up, it seems to be just blowing stuff around.
You need to really
look at it some thing is out of line you shooed
.any spaces in the top or bottom
.pull the canister back out and look at the pins that you lined up with the
.top and the canister you might have missed arrows that need to be lined
.up so it fits tightly in its holder
.ive had the same problem
with my hover mach5
.i hope this helps you
Bisell Healthy home vacuum stopped working. The troubleshooting guide said there could be a problem in the connection at the handle. None of the phillips screwdrivers we have seem to work in removing the screw that holds the handle to the vacuum. What size phillips screw driver should we be using? If the screw is stripped, how can we get it out to replace it since it is not easily accessible in the handle?
You should use a p2 size phillips. there is only one screw right in the center that holds the handle assy on. frequently that screw backs out and allows the handle to slide back and loose connection. make sure the handle is tightly pressed in and the center screw is tight. that should fix your problem. let me know if it doesnt
I recently took out a stand mixer that is probably over 50 years old. It belonged to my mother and I wanted to use it. It probably hasn’t been used in at least 10 years. With some effort, I removed one of the beaters but cannot remove the other one nor can I even budge it. I have used WD-40 but it’s not helping. It’s a Westinghouse product. Any ideas? Thanks.
If you used WD40, you should have the unit inverted so the WD40 runs down into the beater socket.Use a small piece of wood and place it against the bottom of the beater and tap lightly with a hammer while pressing the beater release button/lever, just enough to break any crusty seal that may have formed..If this does not loosen it enough to remove, using two pieces of wood about 1″x1″x12″ put them around the stem of the beater, above the beater cage and tap with a hammer while pressing the release button/lever for the beaters..
.This has me a bit intrigued. Please let me know how you make out..All the best.
The power brush floor rug attachment on my Eureka 6997 A Oxygen Canister Vacuum goes on an off as I use it. I replaced the The power cord from the handle has 2 plug in connections:
1 at the handle / upper wand
1 at the lower wand top of the power brush attachment
I replaced the entire wand assembly and it worked great for a year or so and now it’s doing the same thing again. I was told to keep the power switch on the handle set to off when connecting the power brush attachment or it will bu
This is from the prongs not making a good connection causing an arch inside the plugg causing what looks like rust on the plugg. I would try snugging up the connection by squeezing the female section to get a better connection on the prongs when it is plugged in together.
