How to Change a Kirby Belt

1) Open top lid.

2) Turn nozzle locking latch counter clockwise.

3) Remove the nozzle.

4) Twist two latches on the backside (inside) of the nozzle counter clockwise to release the soleplate.

5) Remove the soleplate.

6) Remove brush roll and broken belt.

7) Clean the inside of the nozzle.  This prevents future clogs and ensures smooth operation.

8) Place belt around the middle of the brush roll.

9) Return brush roll to housing.

10) Replace soleplate.

11) Open front latch on the nozzle.

12) Turn the plastic latch counter clockwise.  The inside of this plastic latch has a hook that catches the belt for replacement.  Make note of the belt loop at this time.

13) Put the armature (the metal spinning rod on the body of the vacuum) through the belt loop in the nozzle.  It glides on without resistance.

14) Turn the nozzle locking latch clockwise to secure the nozzle.

15) Turn the belt hook latch clockwise to return it to its normal resting and operating position.  This also secures the belt to the armature.

16) Close the top lid and resume vacuuming with your new belt.


Fix of the Week: How to Change Electrolux Part # NUE-003 Coupling

by Mark 5. June 2014 06:51

To begin, disconnect your power nozzle from the wand of the vacuum.  Turn the vacuum upside down and locate the 6 screws holding the soleplate on.  With a Phillips or flat head screw driver, remove the 6 screws and detach the soleplate from the power head.  Turn the head right side up again.

Next, on the back of the power head (the side that faces you while vacuuming), locate two latches/prong between the two pedals (handle release and height adjustment).  Disengage the latches and pull the top cover off to reveal the brush, belt, etc.

Next, locate and remove 11 screws holding an inner cover on.  The eleventh screw is to the side and not visible from the top.  Remove this inner plate for better access.  Be careful of all wiring inside the head during this process.  

From the old/current elbow on the head, trace the black and red wires to the circuit board.  Cut these two wires as close to the old elbow as possible to allow maximum slack for splicing.

Remove the old elbow and place the new NUE-003 into the slot/space/housing.  Locate the clipped black and red wires and splice the old wires (the ones that run from the circuit board) to the new wires (on the new NUE-003 elbow).  For the splicing process, eVacuumStore.com specialists recommend using wire nuts for a tight and safe connection

Replace the inner cover and secure it with the 11 screws.  Place the main cover on and clip the latches between the two pedals.  Turn the head upside down; replace the soleplate and secure it with the 6 screws.  Connect your wand to the power nozzle via the new elbow and vacuum with new maneuverability.

eVacuumStore.com Presents the Electrolux Preferred Line

by Mark 16. April 2014 12:10

eVacuumStore.com is the exclusive authorized online retailer of the Electrolux Preferred Line canister vacuums including the EL7070 UltraOne and the EL7066 UltraSilencer Delux.  Both genuine Electrolux vacuums have premier attachments for an easier cleaning experience.  Both vacuums also use high quality S-level filtration bags as well as HEPA filters providing 99.97% efficiency against particles down to .03 microns.

The UltraOne and UltraSilencer share many similarities as the top two Electrolux canister vacuums including: ergonomic handles, crushproof hoses, and a superior power nozzle.  Users control the suction level on the handle as well as turning the brush roll on and off.  The UltraOne features an automatic suction setting that caters to the surface in question.  The machines use the same power nozzle which comes with height adjustment.  If you own an Oriental rug or thick pile carpet, then you need a power nozzle with height adjustment.

For hardwood floors or bare surfaces (tile, laminate, etc), the vacuums come with a hardwood floor brush.  This attachment has soft bristles to never scratch or damage hardwood floors, but rather to sweep up dust and dirt lying in the cracks wearing away slowly at the surface dulling its shine and vibrancy.

While you clean, you never need to worry about disturbing anyone in your home.  As the name implies, the UltraSilencer is one of the quietest machines available today operating at under 67 decibels.  This low volume allows users to run the machine while others sleep.   The UltraOne, although slightly louder, runs at roughly 72 decibels which is still silent enough to vacuum while people sleep or rest.

The UltraOne boasts two features over the UltaSilencer.  The design in which the hose enters the canister optimizes airflow; the debris enters the canister horizontally providing unmatched suction power as opposed to dust entering at an angle seen in the UltraSilencer.  The UltraOne also has a larger dust capacity requiring a long lasting S-class bag reducing the number of replacements necessary to continue running.

eVacuumstore.com stands as an exclusive online retailer of the Electrolux vacuums in the Preferred Line.  These superior machines make cleaning worries a matter of the past and keep a hopeful future possible with seven (7) year warranties.  To help determine which vacuum suits your needs, call the Electrolux experts at eVacuumStore.com today at 866-972-8227 and find your way to the ideal canister.

eVacuumStore.com Exclusive Electrolux Vacuum: UltraCaptic

by Mark 15. April 2014 10:15

Today, many bagless canister vacuums lack at least one of several points: it lacks suction; the parts easily break; the dust flies everywhere during the emptying process; the belts always snap; it’s basically disposable.  Electrolux questioned users about what they did not like in bagless models and designed the UltraCaptic to answers their concerns.

The UltraCaptic features a premium power head with motorized brush roll, multiple height settings and a brushroll on/off switch built in to the unit.  This allows the user to raise or lower the power head to fit their carpet height(s) maximizing agitation and airflow to remove embedded dirt, sand, and particles that otherwise shred and destroy fibers.  The brush roll off switch easily transitions the power head from carpeting or rugs to hardwood/bare surfaces without the fear of damaging or marring the floors.

The Compact-and-Go dust cup revolutionizes bagless cyclonic technology by means of 10 separate turbines spinning in conjunction with each other efficiently removing the large clumps of dirt from your carpet.  The turbines also separate the ultra-fine particles down to .03 microns into a HEPA filtration system.  Once filled, simply lift the handle and the unique and innovative dust cup compresses the dirt into a pancake.  Bring this over your trash, press a button and slide the receptacle bottom open in one motion and the cake drops.  This design means that less dirt stays stuck on the walls of the receptacle and debris does not fly off into the air like other bagless models.

The UltraCaptic also comes with a swiveling hardwood floor brush, a deluxe rug and floor tool, and a premium 3-in-1 transformative tool.  The 3-in-1 switches from dusting brush to crevice tool to upholstery tool and back in three easy movements.  Open the crevice tool to make it upholstery, close it again and place the narrow nose into the hose to use the opposite side’s dusting brush.  The rug and floor tool switches between bare floors and area rugs with a foot’s tap while the hardwood brush’s soft bristles unsettle dirt in the cracks of your bare surfaces.  View the Electrolux Bagless Canister Vacuum.


Central Vacuum Motors

by Mark 15. April 2014 09:33

When choosing a central vacuum for your home, pay close attention to the motor housed inside the unit.  In your search, you will encounter three styles of motors in central vacuums that determine the quality, power, and life expectancy of the unit.  Make sure to ask the salesman to show you the motor and take note of the air flow style.

In less expensive models, expect to see a flow through motor.  This average motor keeps initial cost down in most cases, but needs replacement every 6-10 years approximately.  Flow-through motors do not have a cooling fan, so they use the filtered (semi-dirty) air to keep the temperature down.  This system reduces the life of the motor as heated exhaust air enters the motor chamber which leads to debris build up and overheating as time progresses.   If you do not mind replacing the motor every so often as they do not cost absurd amounts or do not intend on cleaning often, an inexpensive central vacuum fits well in most small to medium sized homes.

Above flow-through motors and seen in a majority of central units, peripheral by-pass motors provide strong suction, feature one to three cooling fans, and last more than double the life of its flow-through counterpart.  With at least one cooling on fan on top of the motor, clean air enters the motor and the heated exhaust exists through small vents via side vents on the base of the motor.  Manufacturers commonly use two of these motors in dual motor central vacuum systems.

eVacuumStore.com specialists recommend a tangential by-pass central vacuum motor to minimize replacement and guarantee quality.  Multiple fans cool the fresh air coming into the motor while it exhausts through a side chassis.  If exhausted outside, this design provides 100% filtration of the home.  As a side note, if you can, choose aluminum over plastic for the chassis material as this prolongs motor life as well.

eVacuumStore.com offers dozens of central vacuum models with the three styles of motor listed above.  Call our expert factory trained staff to answer any questions you may have about our selection of central vacuums or their motors to find the right central vacuum for your home and budget.
